Roland DJ-808 Serato DJ Controller
Roland DJ-808. World-class Software Meets World-class Hardware
Two players one sound
Welcome to a new era of DJ’ing. From Serato and Roland, the DJ-808 integrates software, hardware and the TR-S drum sequencer into a single instrument for the very first time.
Melding the power of Serato DJ with the genre-defining drum sounds and precision engineering of Roland, the DJ-808 will change the way you create music.
Instrumental game change
The DJ-808 is the first state-of-the-art DJ controller to include built-in drum sequencing with Roland’s iconic TR drum sound.
Also on board is a 4-channel mixer, vocal processing, ultra high-performance platters with dual-deck control, 2 AIRA link USB ports and the deepest Serato DJ integration available, anywhere.
Integrated drum machine and sequencing
From the TR-909's unmistakable hi-hats to the wall shaking boom of the TR-808, Roland drum machines have defined the sound of entire genres of music. Only the DJ-808 integrates these iconic drum sounds into a state-of-the-art DJ controller.
Customize your beats on the fly and in the moment with the DJ-808’s built-in TR-S drum machine and 16-step sequencer. Lock your beats in perfect sync with Serato DJ, or use the sequencer as a standalone instrument.
Along with the iconic TR drum sound, the sequencer can also trigger the upgraded Serato Sampler, giving you freedom to mix individual drum sounds, layer kicks and snares, and build original beats with no limits.
Authentic original TR sound
The DJ-808’s integrated TR-S drum machine includes the bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and clap from Roland TR-808, TR-909, TR-707 and TR-606 drum machines – the rhythmic foundation of house, hip hop and trap.
Thanks to Roland’s acclaimed Analog Circuit Behavior, the DJ-808 faithfully replicates the peerless sound of the original electronic circuitry.
Expand your setup
Whether you’re a producer, a DJ, or both, you’ll take your craft to a new level with the DJ-808’s impressive built-in connectivity for synths, turntables, microphones and more.
PRODUCER DJ LIVE BAND
Two AIRA link USB ports enable connection and sync of compatible Roland instruments and effects or use MIDI out for your anything with a MIDI input. Add synchronised keyboard arpeggios, live bass lines, leads and sound effects to your DJ sets or productions, and seamlessly sync your sound to Serato DJ.
Transform your voice
Not only does the DJ-808 have a high quality mic input with an XLR combo jack, it also has a dedicated vocal processor, the VT, that can dramatically transform your voice.
Knobs for EQ, Pitch, Reverb and Formant make vocal effects easy, and the ducking capability will automatically adjust the volume when speaking or singing into the mic. The VT’s Auto Pitch function will use Pitch ‘n Time DJ on the incoming signal to match your vocal key to your Serato DJ track.
Ultra-high performance platters
Cut, scratch and cue on state-of-the-art platters with one of the lowest latency of any DJ controller available, giving you incredible control over your music.
The durable and responsive platters have integrated displays that clearly show playback status so you’re always in control. You can even control two decks simultaneously from a single platter with dual deck mode.
Deep Serato integration
Careful design considerations in the Roland DJ-808 take full advantage of everything Serato DJ has to offer, including Key Sync and Loop functions which have dedicated sections so you can quickly adjust the key or shift the loop for a particular deck.
You also get pressure sensitive performance pads for control over Cues, Loop Rolls, Sampler, the TR-S and PItch Play, plus dedicated control of Serato DJ FX.
