After its initial release in 2012, the Pioneer DDJ-SX has been refreshed twice, with this latest model hitting the shelves in May 2018. Some great updates have been added and it can be purchased from Musician’s Friend for under $1000
The stand-out features on the Pioneer DDJ-SX3 for me are:
- Standalone mixer
- Sound color FX
- 3 x mic inputs
The Pioneer DDJ-SX3 has a standalone mixer, which means you can route audio through it even when you don’t have your laptop connected.
