Roland DJ-202 Controller
The Roland DJ-202 is a fully-featured and affordable controller for Serato DJ software. The DJ-202 has the same features and layout as a professional controller but in a smaller form-factor - perfect for mobile DJs, parties, and touring musicians. The DJ-202 has the capability to let users DJ, remix, and produce beats on the fly. The portable design is ideal for taking on the road and the full feature-set means the DJ-202 is also perfect for use in the studio. Dedicated transport controls and low latency platters make the DJ-202 the ideal controller for Serato DJ software.
The DJ-202 has a built-in drum machine, featuring TR-808 and TR-909 sounds, along with eight dedicated performance pads for beat creation. The DJ-202 also has a 16-step sequencer which controls Serato DJ's sampler for live performance improvisation.
The DJ-202 can also function as a USB audio/MIDI interface (with 24-bit/48 kHz fidelity and high-resolution A/D converters). A MIDI output lets users control and sync external gear, while the 1/4 inch mic input with effects is ideal for live performances.
Upgrade to DJ Pro
The DJ-202 comes ready to control Serato DJ Lite and the special Mixpack bundle means users can upgrade to DJ Pro, free of charge. DJ Pro is used by many of the world's top DJs and has many advanced features including expansion packs, MIDI mapping, full sync, and quantize capabilities.
DJ Pro is a complete re-working of its predecessor, Serato DJ. DJ Pro includes a new Practice Mode which gives you keyboard control over many software functions without needing to connect any hardware; this gives users the capability of creating loops and manipulating tempos and flips. DJ Pro also integrates with Serato Video, providing support for many video formats to create your own music videos and project them live.
The software also features 64-bit support with virtually no limit on your library size. The Performance Pad view lets you display your cue points with improved clarity, while the high-resolution-optimized display is perfect for modern devices.
Free One-Hour Live Training
Giving users the perfect jump-start in DJing, the Mixpack Bundle features an hour's free training from the Roland Cloud Academy (worth 99 Euros). This live training session teaches DJs how to get the most of their DJ-202 and Serato DJ software - taught by industry professionals and product experts. Roland hosts several live sessions every month, accessible via any device with an internet connection.
