The DJM-S11 is a 2-channel, 4-deck control battle mixer that enhances various elements from its predecessor, the DJM-S9, and offers a good chunk of brand-new features to help you perform more freely with Serato DJ Pro or rekordbox.
Customizable touch screen
A 4.3-inch customizable touch screen gives all the information you need. Browse tracks, check waveforms, and dynamically change the texture of the music with TOUCH FX. With Touch MIDI you can directly control functions in your DJ software without touching your laptop.
More Effects Baby - The new expanded effects section lets you be more creative than ever before
Level up your sets with 22 Beat FX, including the new Fader Pitch and Helix. Smooth Echo is a new effect that you can automatically engage when you move the faders or hit the pads you’ve assigned as triggers.
Improved Performance Pads
The 8 Performance Pads are bigger, making them easier to hit in energetic battles. In Serato DJ Pro, use Combo Pad mode to combine up to 4 different pad modes at once, and use Scratch Bank to call up assigned scratch samples by just tapping a pad.
Enhanced MAGVEL FADER PRO
PDJ has enhanced the feeling of the MAGVEL FADER PRO and boosted its vertical rigidity by 30 percent. This means you can scratch with more confidence, while the tougher coating around the crossfader area reduces wear and tear.
Crystal-clear sound quality
The DJM-S11 inherits the raw and high-density sound from the DJM-900NXS2 thanks to studio-quality 64-bit mixing and dithering processing inside the DSP, and a low-jitter clock circuit and 32bit high-quality D/A converter in the master output section.
