Torrance, CA (7th September 2017) We’re releasing a 2-channel mixer that offers a new entry point into the Serato DJM Series; the DJM-S3. The DJM-S3 is Serato DJ and DVS enabled thanks to its built-in sound card inherited from the professional DJM-S9 - so you can plug it into your PC/Mac and start using it with Serato DJ (*1) immediately.

With its scratch-friendly layout, the DJM-S3 is built to withstand intense performances and the highly durable Magvel crossfader, inherited from the DJM-900NXS2, provides a smooth, accurate response. The mixer is Serato DVS Enabled, so you can control your digital tracks via turntables using the Serato Control Vinyl (*2). Bringing even more creativity to your performances, you can also connect the DDJ-SP1 controller (*3) and use its large Performance Pads for tactile control of many Serato DJ features, including its FX.

The DJM-S3 will be available from September at an MAP of $499USD.

KEY FEATURES OF THE DJM-S3

  1. Built-in Serato DJ-ready sound card with DVS support

Thanks to the built-in Serato-dedicated sound card inherited from the professional DJM-S9 mixer, you can connect the DJM-S3 to your PC/Mac with a single USB cable and immediately use Serato DJ (available separately). Mix and scratch your digital files via turntables and the Serato Control Vinyl, or by using compatible multi players.

  1. Professional Magvel crossfader

Scratching on the DJM-S3 feels instinctive and effortless. The responsive and tough Magvel crossfader – taken from the DJM-900NXS2 professional mixer – is accurate, smooth and durable for more than 10 million movements.

  1. 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.

  1. Professional sound quality

Whether you’re playing with digital or analogue sound sources, the DJM-S3 creates high-quality audio thanks to its dithering technology. 

  1. Other features
  • XLR terminal – high-quality audio output
  • Two headphone outputs – ¼-inch stereo jack and 3.5-mm mini jack
  • Signal GND terminal – easily attach and securely hold ground wires from analogue turntables
