Roland x Serato  Announcement  what it could mean for Real DJs

Roland x Serato Announcement what it could mean for Real DJs

    Unless your living under s rock, or your new to Djing and Serato you've likely heard the buzz about the  DJ 808. The 808 takes a very similar shape  to the Pioneer DDJ-SX.

And Threw a Roland 808 in it !

This seems to be a pretty large step from Serato to address some of the Traktor capabilities of live remixing, that  many Traktor DJs hold as its golden strength. DJ Shiftee is amazing at live routines with Traktor I'll just leave my favorite right here:

 

So now for the breakdown :

Release Slated for end of September for $1499

Controller portion:

  • 4 Channels
  • Velocity Sensitive Pads
  • DVS Ready
  • Advanced Serato controls, Loops Cues , Effects, Pitched play !
  • Built in effects
  • Auto-Tune in MIC
  • USB HUB!

Sequencer portion:

  • 4 Drum Kits built in
  • 4 sounds per Drum Kit
  • External midi synths
  • Sequence Serato's Sampler bank

All in all I think this is overkill for "Basic DJs"  but for guys who want to live remix and create some amazing routines I believe this can be the start of something great ! 

AHHYEAH!!!
