  • based on 24-bit/96 kHz processing to achieve extraordinary fidelity.
Yes, the Roland DJ-808 is all of these things, and so much more. But it’s not just the long list of features that make the DJ-808 so impressive; it is the incredible way that all of the pieces come together to deliver a musical performance that is powerful, intuitive, satisfying, and altogether jaw-dropping. Roland has engineered the DJ-808 to defy the simple definitions and challenge preconceptions, enabling artists and performers to outgrow their own limitations. Whether you call yourself a DJ, Artist, Producer, Beat-Maker, or Musician, the DJ-808 is your instrument — the hands-on command center for your sonic journeys.

    Deep Integration
    The Roland DJ-808 Professional DJ Controller begins as a four-channel mixer for the four Serato decks that it can control. Each channel offers an individual trim control, a three-band EQ, ten-segment LED metering, a cue button, and the fader. In addition, the onboard Channel FX – Dub Echo, Jet, Noise, and Filter – can be applied to each channel individually. The Izotope and other effects contained in Serato DJ, on the other hand, are applied directly to each deck.

    The jog wheel/platters feature super-low latency touch response, allowing for accurate scratching and cueing. The platters themselves offer Slip, Reverse, and Vinyl modes for achieving just the right feel and full 100 mm pitch faders that provide precise control. Adjacent to each platter are the Key Sync buttons, offering direct access to the Serato Pitch’n Time software – the license is included with your DJ-808. Nearby are the Auto Loop command buttons, which offer a simple way to create accurate, beat-matched looping on the fly.

    One of the highlights of the Roland DJ-808 is the 16 RGB illuminated and velocity-sensing touchpads. These multifunction pads provide performance access to features such as Hot Cues and Cue Loops. In addition, these touchpads allow real-time musical access to the onboard Roland TR-S Drum sounds and the Serato Sample sounds. The near one-to-one relationship between software functions and hardware controllers brings the DJ-808 and the Serato DJ software together at the deepest levels of integration.

    We Got the Beat
    The Roland TR-S drum machine was developed specifically for inclusion in the DJ-808. The sounds are classic Roland, as is its intuitive grid-style programming. The TR-S actually provides the distinctive instrument sounds – Kick, Snare, Open Hi-Hat, Closed Hi-Hat – found in the TR-909, TR-808, TR-606, and TR-707. Individual volume sliders are provided for each drum type.

    Recording a pattern is easy - simply select a drum sound and specify which beats in the pattern will play that sound. Up to 16 Patterns can be saved and loaded for instant access. Even after the pattern is recorded, it is easy to replace any or all drum sounds, creating a custom kit of your favorite Roland sounds. In addition, the TR-S drum machine provides quick access to the Sampler in Serato DJ, allowing the Serato Sampler sounds to be played by the TR-S drum machine.

    In another example of deep integration, the DJ-808 touchpads can be used to play the TR-S and Sampler sounds in real-time, as accents when programming, or create rolls and fill patterns using these same sounds. The Touchpads can also be used to call up and cue groups of patterns to play in succession. Additionally, the TR-S drum machine can instantly sync to the current song.

    The TR-S drum machine was created using Roland ACB (Analog Circuit Behavior) technology to mimic all of the component behavior and controller interaction in the original circuitry, thereby creating a faithful replica of the classic instrument.

    Voice Transformer
    Another tool in the DJ808’s arsenal is Roland’s powerful Roland Voice Transformer technology. The Voice Transformer offers a variable gain control, two-band equalizer, and reverb to create a compelling vocal sound. The fun begins when using the Pitch and Formant knobs to manipulate the voice in unusual ways. The Auto Pitch button instantly matches the microphone pitch to the current pitch of the song being played, creating dramatic musical effects on the fly. The Voice Transformer features a three position switch providing On, Off, and Ducking options.

    The Nerve Center
    The DJ808 is well equipped to sit at the center of your setup. The front edge panel is host to both 1/4" and 1/8" (3.5mm) headphone jacks tied to a volume knob, a mix/cue balance knob, and a Mono Split/Stereo switch for the maximum in monitoring options. The mixer provides both Master and Booth level controls. The Master output exits the DJ808 either via balanced XLR connectors or a pair of stereo RCA jacks. The Booth outputs feature balanced 1/4" TRS connectors. Each of the four input channels is equipped with a stereo pair of RCA connectors.
     
    Switches on the front edge allow Channels 1 and 2 to receive a line level signal or a signal from a turntable; a grounding lug is provided to reduce phono hum. An additional set of switches allow Channels 3 and 4 to receive a line level signal, or a signal arriving via the AIRA Link/USB Host connectors. The microphone input includes a sensitivity knob and is equipped with a combination jack that can accept either an XLR cable or a 1/4" plug.

    The Roland DJ808 Professional DJ Controller includes a traditional MIDI out port, and a USB connector. Two additional HOST USB jacks allow the DJ808 to connect to other Roland products that use the AIRA Link system to share audio and timing information. In either case, AIRA Link or MIDI, the DJ808 can instantly sync with your other products to create a single, unified, music production system.

    DEFINITELY GLAD I BOUGHT IT!!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I WAS IN TURMOIL FOR AWHILE ABOUT PURCHASING A NEW CONTROLLER. I JUST RECENTLY BOUGHT A DENON MC7000 LAST YEAR. I WAS HAPPY WITH IT BUT I JUST FELT AN UPGRADE WAS NECESSARY. IT WAS BETWEEN THE 808 & THE DDJ 1000. I FINALLY DECIDED ON THE 808 BECAUSE ALL THE REVIEWS KEPT TALKING ABOUT THE INCREDIBLE SOUND QUALITY & THEY WERE NOT EXAGGERATING ONE BIT!! THE DJ808 SOUNDS AMAZING!! IT'S TAKING A LIL WHILE FOR ME TO LEARN THE DRUM MACHINE PORTION BUT IT'S FUN & IT'S OPENING MY EYES TO DO SOME CREATIVE THINGS THAT I WOULD HAVE NEVER EVEN TRIED BEFORE!!

    Well worth the money, I love it!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This is a great controller. It sounds better than the Numark I previously owned. I play better and have gotten several compliments and bookings because of this new system. It is also easier to use than the Numark and I’m so glad I purchased this controller.

    I Love this controller!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I've been playing with this controller for 7 months at all my gigs and I must say, it's phenomenal! This controller has all the "bells & whistles" you can think of in a controller. One of the features I really enjoyed the most were the channel FX, the Pitch N' Play buttons, TRS Sequencer, the VT mic feature, and the SOUND CARD! The sound quality is nearly identical to Pioneer's DJM-900NXS2 but the Roland has that tight and punchy bass, which really hits you hard in the chest when you plug this unit into any sound system. CLEAR AND POWERFUL SOUND! Although I really wish it had 2 microphone inputs and Serato Flip functions. Other than that, I highly recommend this controller! You will get lots of compliments about the sound quality.

    Well Worth the money
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I love this product. The latency on the wheels are very sensitive and easy for those who like to scratch. I love the extra USB plug-ins for people who like to plug in extra devices.

    Convenient As Much As Possible
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This product is amazing for mobile DJing, as I do. Unfortunately, the product doesn't have dual USB capabilities to host two DJs at the same time. I do appreciate the color scheme, it looks great in photos, and the 808 makes the product standout from other products my crowd has seen. At home I utilize the convenience of recording my mixes for my 9PM radio show; then i have fun recording and experimenting with the Roland 808 for recreation. This is nearly a perfect introduction to the DJ Console world, as an already-advanced DJ.

    Absolutely amazing
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Well built for a controller from Roland. Like all products there is always room for improvement but they have knocked it out of the park. Well thought through and takes all advantages available in Serato. I would highly recommend for any DJ wanting a premium controller!

    Best Controller Ever
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Alright , so I've been Dj'n for about a year and I wanted to upgrade from my entry level controller. This controller is the best hands down , easy to figure out and the beat maker is awesome for anyone who wants to start producing. On my end I like using it when I'm playing a set. Very straightforward and the jog wheels have a good weight to them. A lot of keen features , and produces a great sound overall ! Very glad I made this purchase.
