Serato Pro has been designed from the ground up, providing a range of useful features and rock-solid reliability. The interface has been optimised for high-resolution screens, providing crisp and clean visuals, ideal for Retina, 4K and UHD displays. A Practice Mode is included, allowing you to mix two tracks together without hardware connected. This allows you to test out your blending and mixing, without the need for a controller.
As well as Serato DJ Pro, the DJ-505 comes with the complete Serato DJ Toolkit expansion software. Serato DJ Toolkit includes 3 Serato expansions: Serato Flip, Serato Pitch N’ Time and Serato FX. Flip allows you to create, save and play back custom arrangements of your tracks, while Pitch N’ Time allows you to change the key of tracks in real time to key sync with other material. The Serato FX pack was co-created with iZotope and includes 4 FX expansions: Wolf Pack, Back Pack, Jet Pack and Chip Pack, and gives you a huge choice of different effects to manipulate your tracks during performance
One of the most prominent features of the DJ-505 DJ Controller is the large platters that boast ultra-low latency performance, optimised for scratching applications. The high-performance platters are also ideal for mixing, providing a smooth operation that will allow you to seamlessly blend tracks together. The Roland DJ-505 also boasts exceptional audio fidelity and performance thanks to the high-resolution digital converters, capturing every nuance from your music library in incredible detail.
One of the most versatile features of the controller is the integrated mixer, which can be used as a standalone mixer via connections of media players or turntables, via the line and phono inputs. This high-end DJ controller is suited for intermediate and professional DJs boasting a range of performance controls and parameters designed to take your mixing capabilities to the next level.
What sets the Roland DJ-505 DJ Controller apart from the rest on the market is its range of performance enhancing features as well as the classic 16-step sequencer. The 16-step sequencer is inspired by the Roland AIRA module, providing a class layout which can trigger either the Serato Sampler or the TR drum sounds that come complete with the controller. Roland have incorporated fully editable drum kits from Roland classic Tr-808, 909, 606 and 707 modules, revitalised using the advanced ACB (Analog Circuit Behaviour) technology to recapture the essence of the sounds.
As well as incorporating some of the most well-known drum machine sounds, the DJ-505 Controller also boasts eight performance pads which can be used for sampling, triggering hot cues, effects and more. You can use the performance pads and the sequencer together to create custom transitions, add drum patterns into your mixes or even add additional percussion into classic tracks to remix them live. Each channel of the controller features dedicated mixing controls as well as being able to use filter via Serato FX.
The streamlined and robust design makes the DJ-505 ideal for the DJ on the move, with protruding sides allowing you to transport your controller with ease. The large low-latency platters feature a brush aluminium top plate as well as illuminated outer rings for use in low light environments that provide information on the status of the deck. The Roland DJ-505 also provides a range of versatile connectivity including a MIDI output that allows you to sync external equipment with Serato DJ, as well as the TR-S sequencer.
A microphone input is also included, accompanied by high-grade effects such as gate, hi-pass, reverb and echo FX. Balanced XLR outputs allow you to connect your controller directly to PA systems, as well as including a Booth Output and separate headphone output for monitoring your mixes. Designed for use with Serato DJ, the controller unlocks the software and comes complete with Serato Tool Kit licences providing added functionality for your software.
