The Roland DJ-808 is more than a low-latency DJ Controller. Not only does it offer seamless 4-channel integration with Serato DJ, it infuses their AIRA Music Production technology into one compact, lightweight unit. A true performance instrument, for DJs and Producers to add a new dimension to your live show.
Starting from 8th August 2018 (and while stocks last) if you buy a Roland DJ-808 controller, Roland will send you a limited-edition TR-808 Serato vinyl pressing. This highly collectable double-pack features exclusive 808 beats from legends Marley Marl, Just Blaze, Machinedrum, Egyptian Lover, DJ QBert, Salva, and more.
Both pieces of vinyl include a selection of rhythm tracks and locked grooves on side one, and control tone on the flip for use with Serato’s Digital Vinyl System (DVS).
A revolutionary hybrid music production and DJ Controller
The Roland DJ-808 is by far one of the most fully-featured DJ Controllers to date. Under the hood, it's packed with some of Roland's most cutting-edge performance tools and technology. Controls for Loop control, Serato Flip, Auto Sync, Hot Cues and a revolutionary Key Sync allow you to create dynamic, immersive DJ sets. The Jog Wheels ensure an uncompromising connection with the music - thanks to Slip, Vinyl Scratch, Reverse and Censor switches similar to industry standard CDJs. You can even control two decks per platter with a Dual Deck mode.
On a par with some of the world's greatest DJ Mixers, the DJ-808 features integrated performance FX, independent channel controls, 3-band EQ and top quality, responsive faders. RGB Colour Pads offer extra functionality for live groove programming, sample triggering or Sound FX.
Integrated Roland TR Drum Machine
A built-in TR-S drum sequencer echoes the performance capabilities of the Roland AIRA TR-8. Some of Roland's most legendary drum samples of the TR-909, TR-808, TR-707 and TR-606 are all included within the DJ808, so you can perform on the fly and quantize custom loops within a live set thanks to a 16-step Sequencer.
In addition to the internal TR drum sounds, the TR-S sequencer can also trigger the new 8-slot Serato Sampler within Serato DJ. You can mix and match individual drum sounds, layer kicks and snares, and build drum parts limited only by your creativity.
Built-in VT Voice Transformer Module
Not only does the DJ-808 have a high quality mic input with an XLR combo jack, but also has a dedicated vocal processor, the VT Voice Transformer, that can drastically transform your voice. Knobs for EQ, Pitch and Formant make dramatic vocal effects easy and the ducking capability will automatically adjust the volume when speaking or singing into the mic. And the VT’s Auto Pitch function will even re-pitch the incoming signal to match the key of your Serato DJ tracks.
Stage or Studio? You Decide
The Roland DJ-808 performs equally well as a music production interface, Mobile DJ tool or for touring DJs that want ultimate control over Serato DJ. Built with Roland's trademark quality, it's built to last - wherever you decide to take it. Smooth, intuitive knobs and faders, adjustable curves, removable crossfader and touch-sensitive RGB buttons. Everything a PRO DJ asks for.
