From the manufacturer
Start from scratch
We’ve combined the popular features of the DDJ-SB2 with our leading Serato DJ controllers to make learning to DJ more accessible than ever. The ideal tool for beginners looking to hone their skills, this 2-channel controller is easy to navigate, featuring a professional-style layout inspired by our top DDJ-S range. Master Serato DJ Lite, then when you’re ready, purchase Serato DJ Pro to progress on the one machine.
Transition between tracks with ease thanks to the added FX Fade feature and experiment with scratch effects without using turntables via the new Pad Scratch function. Co-developed with DJ Jazzy Jeff, this technique adds scratch recordings to tracks at a touch of the Performance Pads.
All of the features were designed to be where you need them, when you need them. The layout inherits elements from our DDJ-S series with jog wheels, Performance Pads, play and cue buttons, independent Auto Loop buttons and all knobs and fader positions arranged in an easy-to-reach way that mimics professional gear.
Add scratch effects to cued and currently playing songs without a turntable thanks to Pad Scratch. This new effect lets you reproduce, and create patterns from, eight of hip hop legend DJ Jazzy Jeff’s different scratch recordings. As the speed automatically matches the BPM, you won’t need to worry about breaking rhythm.
Whether you’re an experienced DJ or beginner, mixing is seamless with the FX Fade feature. By reducing the volume and applying FX at the same time, FX Fade smoothly blends tracks – even those from clashing genres. Choose eight combinations of the following four FX patterns – high pass filter, low pass filter, loop playback and back spin.
The DDJ-SB3 is constructed from premium materials and audio circuitry. Its robust build ensures durability, while the distinctive styling and aluminium jog wheel deliver a professional feel.
Large jog wheels
It may be compact, but the DDJ-SB3 features large, low-latency jog wheels to give you great scratch response and accuracy.

Comes with Serato DJ Lite which offers a few improvements from Serato DJ Intro such as monitoring line meters for volume management.
The unit has a good weight and offers grip ridges for handling.
I'm very satisfied with this product and strongly recommend it.
As a controller, I like it; it was what I was looking for control-wise. The layout is familiar, and most controls can be mastered if you spend some quality time reading and experimenting.
The faders are quite light, with little resistance to movement. This is convenient for abrupt changes, but feels cheap. The tempo fader in particular on the right half also isn't mounted well and slants to the side, adding to the cheap feel. All bottom pads are the same color on this unit, while on the more expensive decks they are a variety of colors, which really would aid in operation and hardly add cost to the unit. Seems a stupid way to differentiate product pricing tiers (this is one of the cheapest models in the line), but Serato does the same thing to a greater degree (more on that in a minute). The platters feel sufficiently hefty so I'm glad at least that feels like it has decent construction and quality of material there. Time will tell. Knobs and pads feel just fine.
Serato has a clever scheme which only allows their software to output to a sound card in a Serato-branded controller. No using this controller for only control with Serato software. I bring this up because the sound card in this DDJ-SB3 really sucks. Tons of electronic noise when not playing anything (or playing something really quiet), which is particularly noticeable when the controller initializes (when loading/clearing a play deck, starting/closing out of Serato, etc). Poorly shielded and crappy sound card (with only RCA outs) drives me bananas when setting up in the studio with headphones on.
MIXXX, on the other hand, (free software!) allows you to direct the sound anywhere you want, bypassing the DDJ-SB3, while still keeping control over the trim, EQ, filtering, and playback control from the DDJ. This is possible because they have a plug-in for the SB2 (hopefully soon the SB3), which is almost a shoe-in (tempo fader is backwards, and a number of features Serato DJ Pro enables such as beat matching don't work).
Serato DJ Lite (included with the controller) is a sad application which goes out of its way to be a money grab and get you on DJ Pro. Don't buy from them direct at $129, it's $99 elsewhere. The two aren't even the same application; I have both installed and I hope all the audio analyzing I did in my library for DJ Lite wasn't a waste. With DJ Pro, you're allowed two installs (a desktop and laptop, for instance), but only one can run at a time. A number of things that DJ Pro gets you come free with MIXXX, and DJ Pro is $49 if you're on Mac. Serato has it in their head they own the business and everybody else is an also-ran. They constantly remind you they "are legendary".
I would in hindsight probably have led with DJay Pro, not Serato DJ Pro (I could always buy DJay and have both). With how crappy the sound card is in this thing, I will only plan on using it with Serato for dancing, not for other events/functions.
My issue is this. It unlocks Serato DJ lite. Not serato DJ pro. Even though I have DJ pro which works with the sx3. Serato says I still have to purchase an upgrade licences to use it with this controller. I guess I didn't read the fine print. Serato DJ lite is a bit too limited for me.

And delivery is very slow even though I have paid extra for fast delivery , tracking information shows Bangalore for 2 days
I've played some show snad learned a lot on this thing and don't have any reason to upgrade yet.
This was super easy to setup and start using. It integrates well with any number of software out there so no worries about getting tied down to something you don't like to use. Additionally I have found this works great for mixing and even recording not just your own sets but it can work double duty to help you with certain aspects of studio production. Need backing tracks, need to edit or manipulate them, want to add effects? You can do it with this baby. Whether you're rocking your house or broadcasting out this is a good controller to start with. It doesn't have everything but it does give you everything you'll need and can think of. I have yet to find an excuse to pay an extra $1000 or more to get the next model up as dreamy as they look.
