Roland DJ-202 en DJ-505

R2D2 / 14 augustus 2017

Roland (niet echt een dj merk van oudsher) komt met 2 nieuwe controllers, de DJ-202 en DJ-505. Beide controllers welke werken in combinatie met de Serato DJ software. De DJ-202 wordt door Roland aangemerkt als een “full size professional rugged controller” maar is eigenlijk de instapper (op papier geen hele slechte overigens… maar eens op zoek naar een review exemplaar) van de DJ serie. De DJ-505 is het model wat vlak onder de DJ808 gepositioneerd wordt door Roland (over het algemeen de beste keus in een line-up wanneer je kijkt naar “bang for buck”).

Roland DJ-202

The Roland DJ-202 is a forward-thinking Serato DJ Intro controller that gives DJs the features and layout of a full-size professional controller in a rugged and portable unit. The compact DJ-202 preserves the concept of the flagship DJ-808 and streamlined DJ-505, allowing unparalleled flexibility to DJ, remix, and produce beats on the fly while performing live or creating in the studio. With its large, low-latency platters, dedicated pad and transport controls, onboard sequencer, and mic input with professional vocal FX, the DJ-202 packs in the most features of any controller in its class.

*TR-606 and TR-707 sounds will be added in a future user-installable firmware update.

  • Onboard sequencer that controls Serato DJ Intro’s sampler for on-the-fly beat creation
