Pioneer DJM-S5 Scratch-Style 2-Channel Performance DJ Mixer
The Pioneer DJM-S5 is a Scratch-Style 2-Channel Performance DJ Mixer. This new scratch-style 2-channel DJ mixer for Serato DJ Pro is ideal if you’ve experimented with battle mixing and scratching and want to expand your skills, or if you’re completely new to the scene and want to dive straight in.
DJM-S5’s MAGVEL FADER PRO Crossfader
Find your perfect scratch feeling with the popular MAGVEL FADER PRO crossfader. It features Feeling Adjust so you can tweak the “weight” and get the level of resistance you like best. You can be confident in the fader’s robust design too; the knob mounting axis is highly rigid in the vertical direction so it can handle energetic scratch techniques.
What’s more, use DJM-S5’s 2 large effect levers to control up to 57 effects in Serato DJ Pro (including paid Expansion Packs). The levers are the same size as those on the flagship DJM-S11. You can hold them down or release them to turn the effect on / off. You can also lock them on so your hands are free to browse and scratch tracks!
There are also 2 banks where you can save effects, giving you quick access to your favourites.
Get creative and experiment with 13 pad modes including Hot Cue and Sampler. Use the 4 Performance Pads on each deck, to trigger samples and find all kinds of new ways to “remix” your tracks live and add texture to the music. These pads measure 20.6 mm x 20.6 mm.
DJM-S5’s Scratch Cutter
Start scratching straight away – even if you’ve never tried before. Simply choose one of the 6 cutting patterns and turn on the Scratch Cutter function with the effects lever. Then, move the control vinyl or jog wheel (when using DVS control) forward and backward on the deck. The best part is- DJM-S5 will do the rest.
The mixer applies a cutting effect to the music in perfect time. This emulates the popular transformer scratch technique without you moving the crossfader. This feature offers a great way to start learning to scratch; you can concentrate on getting your timing right with the control vinyl before moving on to the more challenging technique of using the crossfader.
USB Bus Power and Standalone Mixer Versatility
The DJM-S5 is the first-ever Pioneer DJ mixer that you can power via the USB connection to your computer. What’s more, if you use portable turntables, DJM-S5 just got even better! Experience the freedom to practice and perform literally anywhere you can carry your decks! This includes your garden, a park, or even the beach.
It works as a standalone mixer too. So you can play music from a variety of sources including analog vinyl records. And even though the mixer is USB powered, it produces a wide-ranging bright sound that brings out the best of all music genres.
