Say hello to Roland's first DJ controller ever: the Roland DJ-808 professional DJ controller, a laptop-ready USB Serato DJ controller and Roland drum machine in one. Working closely with industry-standard DJ software designers, the DJ-808 offers the best of two worlds: seamless integration with Serato DJ software, and powerful on-board Roland hardware.
The Roland DJ-808 is more than just a four-channel DJ controller for Serato -- it's the first controller of its kind to include a complete drum machine with a 16-step sequencer right at the top of the hardware. Under the hood, it's a Roland TR sequencing drum machine, which borrows sounds from classic '80s Roland drum sequencers like the TR-808 and TR-909. It can trigger up to 32 samples stored in the four banks of the Serato DJ sampler. Samples can my manipulated in a number of ways including the Accent button, the four sample channel volume faders, or by adding effects with Serato's software effects powered by iZotope. It can even capture samples on the fly directly from your mix using the Inst Record mode -- or trigger one of 16 pre-programmed drum sequences via Pattern Mode. Furthermore, while most DJ controllers only offer controls for EQ and ducking on the incoming Mic channel, the DJ-808 offers a built-in Roland VT Voice Transformer module, allowing vocalists to manipulate the Mic channel with pitch, formant, and reverb effects. It can even automatically match the key of the outgoing mix using Serato's key matching function.
Elevating this controller one step above the rest, the DJ-808 is designed with full MIDI capabilities and integration with other Roland AIRA devices. Connect up to two AIRA-compatible synthesizers or effect modules using the two available AIRA Link USB ports, or control virtually any external MIDI device, synced to the beat of the DJ-808 using the standard 5-pin MIDI out port.
The DJ-808 includes a full license for the professional version of Serato DJ software, including an unlock license for the full version of Serato Pitch 'n Time Pro, a complete time stretching and pitch-shifting software suite for manipulating your favorite samples ($800 value). The DJ-808 is also designed to seamlessly integrate with Serato and your favorite turntables or CDJs for digital vinyl simulation (DVS unlock sold separately).
