When there is a new Pioneer DDJ SX3 controller

there is someone who knows about a new SX3 controller from the pioneer

I am still holding onto my SX, wonky left platter and all. I'd love to see an SX3 drop, or whatever the heir apparent is.

We use an SX at spot I play at. I've started to notice something funky with dips in the crossfader, but for being an instal for over 2 years, and especially being Pioneer gear, it's held up quite well.

I used my buddy's SX2 for weddings and quick mobile gigs, and I can't say enough good things about, especially for $900 piece of gear. I keep debating purchasing my own, but I'm scared of obsolescence with controllers.

With a $1000 or less controller a 4-5 year window of use is what you should get.

Certainly not my flag ship setup, but it beats breaking out the TTs and mixer in a lot of settings.

Some Vietnamese websites advertise it as being released in May.

Looks like a nice update.

Will it have a better soundcard than the sx2? pioneer needs to make a controller that sounds as good as the Roland 808

No one except Pioneer knows that cause it is not yet released. But I think it has a slightly better soundcard. We have to wait for the first reviews.

slightly better ain't good enough..Pioneer need to step up and make the sx3 sound as good as the sz2... just adding a few minor features is not truly a upgrade over the sx2....I was hoping the sx3 would of been like the dj1000 controller

They aren't going to offer the top tier card in a mid tier controller, that's silly.

SX3 was a natural upgrade for the line, the DDJ-1000 is a completely different device. You people clown yourself thinking otherwise. Pioneer is smart enough to keep a few toys for it's own ecosystem while still tapping the Serato market with other models.

I'm thoroughly excited about the SX3. I am going to wall mount it in my kitchen and use the faders and knobs to hang my pots and pans in my new Bay Area Home.
