Four-deck Serato DJ Lite controller
The Roland DJ-202 DJ Controller is the latest addition to the DJ controller range from Roland, with a two-channel, four-deck configuration that allows you to create complex mixes, even while incorporating live FX and samples. This innovative Serato DJ Lite controller provides an ergonomic layout with backlit buttons and a straight-forward design that takes your DJ skills to the next level.
Building on the success of the DJ-808, the DJ-202 is a compact and streamlined controller that retains most of the most prominent features from its predecessor including performance pads as well as a revitalised sequencer that is designed to control Serato DJ Lite’s sampler, allowing you to create rhythms and beats on the fly. The controller also ensures optimal audio fidelity thanks to the 24-bit/92kHz sample rate, powered by high-resolution digital-to-analog converters.
Optimised for scratching and mixing
The large and prominent deck platters on the DJ-202 provide the lowest possible latency available, optimised for scratching. The best-in-their-class platters provide superior control over your music, accompanied by dedicated Serato DJ Lite controls that allow you to quickly create and trigger loops, samples, hot cues and more.
The two-channel configuration has four decks in total, allowing you to switch between decks with a dedicated Deck Select button. You can blend between songs with ease using the 3-band EQ filters on each channel. The controller also includes dedicated Play/Pause and cut buttons, allowing you to take full control over your music.
Performance pads and sequencer
Retaining some of the most prominent features from its predecessor, the Roland DJ-202 incorporates eight performance pads boasting a range of effects and functions. The eight pads feature Loop, Sequencer, Hot Cue and Sampler modes for both Serato DJ Lite and Serato DJ software. You can use these pads to add a new level to your sets, bringing added flare to your performances and taking your mixes to the next level.
As well as mixing and blending between songs you can use the performance pads to trigger samples and create beats on the fly, enhancing your performance value. The onboard sequencer has been replaced with a dedicated button above the performance pads, which you can use to program the 16-step sequencer which can be used with Serato Sampler for real-time sequencing capabilities. The sequencing section can be expanded if you upgrade to Serato DJ, giving you access to 32 sync-able sampler slots spread over four banks.
Road-worthy design with versatile connectivity
The streamlined and compact design of the DJ-202 makes it ideal for the DJ on the move. The controller is powered by USB connectivity, eliminating the need for an external power supply. The rugged and lightweight design boasts easy-grab handles, allowing you to transport your controller with ease.
The intuitive layout makes setting up easy, allowing you to connect directly to your speakers or amp via the RCA stereo outputs. It also includes a mic input with integrated, high-quality FX including Gate, Hi-Pass, Reverb and Echo. The controller comes complete with Serato DJ Lite, allowing you to create and build your track libraries, as well as adding effects and importing songs from iTunes. A MIDI output is included for syncing external devices with track in the Serato DJ Lite.
