Going way beyond a typical DJ controller, the DJ-808 is an instrument, with a Roland "TR-S" drum machine that contains the world's most iconic drum sounds and can even control the Serato Sampler within Serato DJ. The VT Voice Transformer can pitch your voice to match the key of your Serato DJ tracks, while two AIRA Link ports let you connect compatible synths and electronic gadgets, and produce a live remix, with just a simple USB cable. Sound quality is high-end and the hardware is built tough yet easy-to-carry.

World-Class Software Meets World-Class Hardware
With the DJ-808, Serato and Roland bring the best of software and hardware together into a single instrument that ushers in a unique era of DJ-ing. It melds the supreme power of Serato DJ software with the genre-defining sound and precise engineering of Roland hardware. Decades of combined expertise give today's producers and DJs state-of-the-art tools and innovative features that open up a world of creative options, both on stage and in the studio.

Legendary TR Drum Sounds and Sequencing
From the TR-909's unmistakable hi-hats to the wall-shaking boom of the TR-808, Roland TR drum machines have defined the sound of entire genres of dance music. Customize your beats on-the-fly and in the moment using the DJ-808's built-in TR drum machine with its iconic sounds and 16-step sequencer that stays in perfect sync with Serato DJ.

Deep Serato DJ Control
Careful design considerations in the Roland DJ-808 take full advantage of everything Serato DJ has to offer. Built-in DVS support (with the purchase of a Serato DVS license), dedicated loop control buttons, controls for Serato Flip, Hot Cue, FX, even Key Sync, it is all there. Key Sync and Loop functions get dedicated sections so you can quickly adjust the key or shift the loop for a particular deck. The design of every pad, slider, and button is with performance in mind. This workflow feels familiar and exciting, all at the same time.

Pitch Perfect with Voice Transformer and Serato Key
Not only does the DJ-808 have a high-quality mic input with an XLR combo jack, but also has a dedicated vocal processor, the VT Voice Transformer, that can drastically transform your voice. Knobs for EQ, Pitch, and Formant make dramatic vocal effects easy and the ducking capability will automatically adjust the volume when speaking or singing into the mic. And the VT's Auto Pitch function will even re-pitch the incoming signal to match the key of your Serato DJ tracks.

I love it. Would def recommend. Not a bot.


I love this controller. I did some research and then got a used one at Sam Ash. The sucker is a big step up from my Mixon 4. I had to get Serato, but I have found it to be more fun than what I was using too. I had to change the internal gain so it would stop breaking up at low volumes, but otherwise, it rules.



Love this controller!!!
