Description

The Novation Dicer Cue Point & Looping DJ Controller is a compact, surface mounted control surface for use with Serato Scratch, and other DJ software titles. Dicer lets DJs easily trigger cue points, loop points, samples and much more. Easy to use controls illuminate in red, green and orange to indicate Serato's Hot-Cue, Loop Roll and Auto-Loop modes.

Dicer was designed by Novation in collaboration with Ean Golden - DJ and curator of DJ Tech Tools. Ean came up with the concept of a controller that fits on the turntable, and his contribution has been crucial in helping Novation design and develop Dicer. The Dicer is designed to corner-mount into the 45-adapter slot found on the Technics SL-1200 and SL-1210, leaving the controls within inches of the software control vinyl. Novation includes a "DJ Putty" adhesive for mounting the Dicer onto CD-decks, laptops and other flat surfaces. With the Novation Dicer, DJs can enjoy quick looping and triggering without touching their laptops, or investing in bulky hardware.

Full Serato Integration

Scratch Live is so much more than mixing digital music. Its creative features such as cueing and looping, take DJ performance to a totally new level. Dicer unlocks these features by putting them right at your fingertips while you're mixing. Dicer's 3 "mode" buttons allow you to jump between 3 different performance modes.

Right Where You Need It

Dicer fixes solidly to Technics 1200/1210 turntables. An attachment enables you to drop them into the 45-adapter slot so they sit squarely in the corner of the turntable. Dicer also comes with re-usable "DJ Putty" that will stick Dicer firmly to CDJs, laptops, mixers - or any hard surface. The putty is strong enough to withstand tough treatment, so even with more vigorous performances Dicer will stay exactly where you put it.

Control Anything

In Serato Scratch Live, as well as the three main modes, there are 2 additional "layers" of the 5 pads, on which you can control other functions in your software (a total of 20 controls across a pair of Dicers).

Compatible with Other DJ Software

Although Dicer has been designed to integrate with Serato, it also works with other DJ software. Setup files for Traktor Scratch and Traktor Scratch Pro are available online. These files assign Dicer's controls to various functions, including Cueing, Play/Stop, Looping, FX and browsing. For other DJ Software, you can use the software's own MIDI mapping function. A pair of Dicers give you a total of 60 MIDI controls.

Performance Buttons with Visual Feedback

Backlit, multi-color, soft touch "dice" buttons, provide immediate LED feedback from Serato Scratch Live software.

Default Setup for Serato Scratch Live

Dicer is pre-programmed to take advantage of the cue point and looping functions in Serato Scratch Live, including "Hot Cues", "Auto Roll" and "Loop Roll".

Works with All Major DJ Software

Dicer is fully MIDI assignable, so it can be set up to control almost any software, including Traktor Scratch Pro. Up to 60 assignable MIDI controls are available from a pair of Dicers.

USB Bus-Powered

Dicer gets all the power it needs from a single USB cable, with no need for an external power supply. A mini Jack cable transmits power and data to the second Dicer.

A Fully Cass Compliant MIDI Device

The Dicer is a plug and play device, so no need to install any drivers.

This palm-sized cue point and looping controller has been designed to fit exactly where you need it: on your turntables, CDJs, mixer or laptop. Dicer always ships in pairs - one for each side.
