Fits on your turntable, CDJ, mixer, or laptop for convenient hot cue, loop roll, and auto loop control.

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.

  • 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
    • Mini-Jack connector for connecting pairs
    • Fully integrated operation with Serato Scratch Live requires version 2.1 or higher
    • Outside of Serato Scratch Live, Dicer operates as a standard MIDI device. For some DJ software, setup files will be required and are available to download
    • Single unboxed unit (Dicer always comes as a pair):
    • W & D = 90mm/3.5"; H = 13mm/0.5"
    • Weight: 72g/0.16 lb.
    • NOTE: This measurement accounts for one Dicer only. Height includes rubber feet/excludes adapter

    A must for Serato users using decks

    Comments about Novation Dicer DJ Cue Point and Looping Controller:

    I wish Serato's next update will include the effects be controlled from the Dicer.
    So glad i researched this hardware after getting rid of my Xponent. I missed the loop buttons and this Dicer does the job. I was contemplating on getting the NI S4 while keeping my M3Ds but since I got the Dicer, I'll just stay with my M3Ds and TTM-57 since they are not made of plastic like the S4. Big Thanks to Musician's Friend for the coupons, FREE PROMPT SHIPPING! Great service!
