Earlier this morning, Pioneer confirmed that the next step in DJ hardware was their brand new Serato DJM-S9 Mixer.

The hybrid mixer is aimed at scratch DJs and will offer new crossfader technology called Magvel Fader Pro. The additional user controls allow the users to tweak the feeling and tension of the fader movement to match the typical scratch DJ style.

The DJM-S9 costs $2,074 and will be available late October 2015.
