Novation Dicer: cue-point, looping and FX control for Digital DJs
Novation’s Dicer is an ultra-compact controller for Digital DJs that fits directly onto the turntable, CDJ, mixer or laptop. It has been designed with Serato to integrate into their ‘Scratch Live’ Digital Vinyl System. However, it also works with Native Instruments’ Traktor Scratch Pro, and any other software using standard MIDI messages. Dicer has 5 ‘dice’ pads which can be used to set and trigger Serato’s ‘Hot Cues’, ‘Auto Loop’ and ‘Loop Roll’ functions, with multicoloured LEDs behind each pad to show what mode you are in. There are also freely assignable layers of controls which allow you to control whatever you want, including triggering samples, effects or even navigating through track libraries and crates. When using other software, a pair of Dicers allow up to 60 MIDI controls between them!
