Serato Scratch Live has a new partner: The Novation Dicer. Developed with Serato, 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.

So what does it do?

Plug Dicer in, slot it on your turntable/CDJ, and you can instantly set cue points and use them to trigger Hot Cues. Or, flip Dicer into Auto Loop or Loop Roll modes to trigger loops, or roll sections of the track to create climaxes, drops, and glitchy breaks. Each mode illuminates Dicer's pads a different color, so you can instantly see what mode the pad is in, which is extremely advantageous in the usual dark clubs and venues.

The forthcoming Scratch Live 2.1 update will automatically map the Dicer to these functions and provide full LED feedback-red for Hot Cues, green for Loop Roll, and amber for Auto-Loop. Dicer can control all cue-point and looping functions in the current version of Serato Scratch Live 2.0. This requires you to simply learn cue-point and looping to Dicer's pads, using Scratch Live's MIDI-learn function. The public beta of Scratch Live 2.1 is available now.

Dicer's buttons can also learn other software functions. You can assign different FX to the pads, trigger samples over the top of your mix, or even browse tracks in your iTunes library.

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.

Features
  • 5 Backlit "dice" pads provide LED feedback from Serato Scratch Live, lighting up red, green or amber to show what mode they are in
  • Modes include: Hot Cues, Loop Roll, and Auto Loop
  • Dicer is fully integrated with the key cue point and looping features of Serato Scratch Live
  • The Dicer mounting adapter is easily removed with a small coin or screwdriver. This allows it to fit snugly into the 45 adapter hole of the Technics 1200 or be securely fastened to any flat surface using the Novation DJ putty provided
  • Connectivity
  • Micro USB 1.1 connector; the most robust and compact USB connection
  • Kensington lock space
Specifications
  • Compatibility
    Fully integrated operation with Serato Scratch Live requires version 2.1 or higher

    Comments about Novation Dicer DJ Cue Point and Looping Controller:

    I bought my novation dicers a couple years ago and they are still working perfectly. At first, i had them mapped out to virtual Dj. I switched to traktor Scratch Pro a year ago and i found this awesome Traktor mapping on novation's website that was pretty much an exact copy of serato's mapping. I was worried that they wouldn't work well with traktor but they work great. Best of all they always look good on my 1200's!

    Comments about Novation Dicer DJ Cue Point and Looping Controller:

    I purchased this item once, and it lasted a few months before becoming inop, I purchased it twice and the same. I didn't even check the warranty, I just bought it again. My bad for doing this, was almost hesitant about posting this complaint cause it makes me look stupid. Well, you got me, not doing this again.

      Too many options for such little price...

      By DJ Hollywood

      from Memphis, TN

      Comments about Novation Dicer DJ Cue Point and Looping Controller:

      The Novation Dicer is one of the greatest products in the DJ Industry in quite sometime. The Dicers have a great look and feel to them. The design is perfect in size and shape. They come with an adapter that fits directly in your 45 adapter slot on your vinyl turntables. If you don't use vinyl, don't fret. They have an adhesive that connects directly to any surface you stick them on. The adhesive is non-destructive and reusable. The quality of this product is beyond any i've seen. I do many concerts and traveling and can rely on these 100%. As for performance, they work as smoothly as anyting I've seen. They auto-map themselves to Serato, with the ability to manually map them using the MIDI functions. One situation I had was that one of my turntables had an RCA cable problem. I used the Novation Dicer through Serato using cue points and no one could tell that the turntable was busted.Overall the Novation Dicer is an excellent product and well worth the money.

      BEST INVESTMENT TO DATE!

      By djCHEENO

      Comments about Novation Dicer DJ Cue Point and Looping Controller:

      The Dicer improves beat juggling and makes it easier. This also adds more flavor to your scratching and mixing. My audience love it when they hear a track remixed live, instead of the original radio version. The is a must have product, if you are deciding to be cost effective in your business and use a mixer other than the Rane.

      Comments about Novation Dicer DJ Cue Point and Looping Controller:

      I've used these with my 1200's and my CDJ-800'S. I love them! Buying another pair for back-up. Looping features and quick cue point activation are awesome. Very little, if any, latency/delay.

      Dicer

      By Brian

      from new york, new york

      Comments about Novation Dicer DJ Cue Point and Looping Controller:

      i had these for two days and they rock. The things you can do with them are endless. Plus with them being already to go out of the box and pre-assigned to serrate make it a lot easier. You can also reassign all the pads to what you want them to do. Keep up the good work bringing out awesome products and we will keep buying them.

      Dicers

      By Dj Noumenon

      from New York, NY

      Comments about Novation Dicer DJ Cue Point and Looping Controller:

      I'll keep it short and sweet...if you can't afford a Rane 57...this is the perfect alternate. They are sturdy, the buttons feel perfect, and it allows you a bit more freedom with using cue points and looping features. I've had a pair of these for over a month and I love them. Highly recommend the Dicers!!!!
