The DDJ-SX3 offers the ability to connect up to 3 Microphones (2 at the rear panel and a 3rd one at the front).

The front MIC3 input is directly routed to the Master Output and only a Volume control is available.

The other 2 Microphone inputs MIC1 and MIC2 (connected at the rear panel) can be routed to a DDJ-SX3 Mixer channel via the SOURCE switchers at the top panel on Mixer Channels 3 and 4 respectively. This means that for 3 microphone inputs, you will be able to control only 2 VirtualDJ decks via the DDJ-SX3 Mixer .

None of the Microphone Inputs can be included in VirtualDJ Setup (Hardware inputs), nor can be controlled from VirtualDJ. However, all 3 of them can be recorded along with your mix.

Further adjustments for the Microphone Inputs can be done via the DDJ-SX3 Settings Utility
