Mix & scratch with Serato
Thanks to the built-in soundcard, this 2-channel mixer is Serato DJ Pro enabled as soon as you unpack it. Featuring a highly durable Magvel crossfader, inherited from the DJM-900NXS2, the DJM-S3 delivers a smooth and accurate response.
The scratch-friendly layout creates more room for you to be creative in the booth. No need to go easy, the DJM-S3 is built to withstand intense performances. And to bring even more creativity to your performances, you can connect the DDJ-SP1 controller and use its large Performance Pads for tactile control of many Serato DJ Pro features, including its FX.
Built-in sound card
Connect your PC/Mac with a single USB cable to use Serato DJ Pro and mix and scratch your digital files via turntables and the Serato DVS Control Vinyl or compatible multiplayers.
Scratching becomes effortless with the highly responsive Magvel Crossfader. Sharing the same quality as the DJM-900NXS2, the fader is accurate, smooth and durable for more than 10 million movements.
Independent channel filters
Turn the filter knob on each channel to create unique textures. By twisting the parameter knob you can adjust resonance and add tension to your performances.
High quality sound
Hear the true, high-quality sound of your tracks whether you’re playing from digital or analogue sound sources thanks to the mixer’s dithering technology.
The XLR terminal and RCAs deliver premium sound quality on all connections. And the signal GND terminal easily attaches ground wires from analogue turntables.
Two headphone outputs
The DJM-S3 lets you plug both an ¼-inch stereo jack and 3.5-mm mini jack. Pick your size or attach 2 headphones when playing back-to-back.
Serato DJ Pro
Get involved with plug-and-play control of Serato DJ Pro with dedicated buttons for FX and advanced features such as Beat Jump, Slip mode and Quantize. Simply connect your PC/Mac and start playing.
This mixer supports DVS control of Serato DJ Pro software. Plug your PC/Mac into the unit and use the Serato DJ Pro control media – control vinyl or CDs – to intuitively control and scratch with digital audio files stored on your computer.
