Scratching sounds wild, but it actually takes precision and a deft touch to replicate the sounds of a skilled DJ — Pioneer DJ's new DDJ-SB3 controller is equipped to help beginners learn the ropes of DJing, while still being advanced enough to appeal to more seasoned scratch doctors. The controller includes all the basic tools for DJing, but it also have features expressly designed to teach people the nuances of scratching.

The DDJ-SB3 was designed in collaboration with DJ Jazzy Jeff, the DJ and actor best known for his recurring role on 'The Fresh Prince of Bel Air'. Pioneer programmed several of Jeff's basic "baby scratches" into the new controller as buttons, with the idea of having users work to emulate those and thus improve their technique.
