Happy #808 Day - Get a Free Serato Vinyl Pressing!
Buy a Roland DJ-808 DJ Controller and claim 2 free vinyl pressings inspired by the most revered drum machine of all time - the Roland TR-808!
To celebrate the most important date of the year for lovers of iconic drum machines (8th August), #808 Day celebrates the classic Roland TR-808!
For #808 Day 2018, Roland has created a limited-edition vinyl double pack inspired by the classic sounds of the TR-808 drum machine; free for customers to claim with the purchase of any new DJ-808 DJ Controller!
Starting from 8 August 2018 (and while stocks last), if you buy a DJ-808 controller, Roland will send you a limited-edition TR-808 Serato vinyl pressing. This double-pack features exclusive 808 beats from legends including Marley Marl, Just Blaze, Machinedrum, Egyptian Lover, DJ QBert, Salva, and more.
Both discs contain a selection of rhythm tracks and locked grooves on side one, along with control tone on the flip for use with Serato's Digital Vinyl System (DVS).
The Roland DJ-808 Serato DJ Controller is perfect for use with these vinyl pressings, whether you want to play the 808 rhythm tracks directly or you want to use the control tone to manipulate music from your Serato library via your turntable. Then you can use the built-in TR-909 / 808 / 707 / 606 hardware drum machine sounds of the DJ-808 to maximise the sonic potential of these vinyl sounds!
The Roland DJ-808 AIRA DJ Controller is an innovative instrument/controller featuring a 4-channel mixer, built-in drum sequencing, and vocal processing.
The DJ-808 marks the start of a new evolution of DJ controllers, building on decades of expertise to provide users with a state-of-the-art experience whilst offering a whole new approach to DJ'ing.
Featuring exceptional integration with Serato DJ Pro software, the DJ-808 allows you to focus on your audio whilst providing virtually unlimited control at your fingertips. The built-in VT Voice Transformer lets you work seamlessly with your Serato DJ tracks, with the ability to pitch your voice to match the key within your track.
Two AIRA Link ports are also provided to allow connection of external compatible synths and other electronic gear. With an included copy of Serato DJ (and free upgrade to DJ Pro), the Roland DJ-808 provides you with tight integration and control, right out of the box.
