Product Highlights
  • Serato Scratch Compatible
  • Trigger Samples, Loops & Cue Points
  • Tri-Color Illuminated Controls
  • Mounts on SL-1200 /1210 45-Adapter Slot
  • DJ Putty for Universal Surface Mounting
  • Sold In Pairs

The Novation Dicer Cue Point & Looping DJ Controller is a compact, surface mounted control surface for use with Serato Scratch, and other DJ software titles. Dicer lets DJs easily trigger cue points, loop points, samples and much more. Easy to use controls illuminate in red, green and orange to indicate Serato's Hot-Cue, Loop Roll and Auto-Loop modes.

The Dicer is designed to corner-mount into the 45-adapter slot found on the Technics SL-1200 and SL-1210, leaving the controls within inches of the software control vinyl. Novation includes a "DJ Putty" adhesive for mounting the Dicer onto CD-decks, laptops and other flat surfaces. With the Novation Dicer, DJs can enjoy quick looping and triggering without touching their laptops, or investing in bulky hardware.

Full Serato Integration
Scratch Live is so much more than mixing digital music. Its creative features such as cueing and looping, take DJ performance to a totally new level. Dicer unlocks these features by putting them right at your fingertips while you're mixing. Dicer's 3 "mode" buttons allow you to jump between 3 different performance modes.
Right Where You Need It
Dicer fixes solidly to Technics 1200/1210 turntables. An attachment enables you to drop them into the 45-adapter slot so they sit squarely in the corner of the turntable. Dicer also comes with re-usable "DJ Putty" that will stick Dicer firmly to CDJs, laptops, mixers - or any hard surface. The putty is strong enough to withstand tough treatment, so even with more vigorous performances Dicer will stay exactly where you put it.
Control Anything
In Serato Scratch Live, as well as the three main modes, there are 2 additional "layers" of the 5 pads, on which you can control other functions in your software (a total of 20 controls across a pair of Dicers).
Compatible with Other DJ Software
Although Dicer has been designed to integrate with Serato, it also works with other DJ software. Setup files for Traktor Scratch and Traktor Scratch Pro are available online. These files assign Dicer's controls to various functions, including Cueing, Play/Stop, Looping, FX and browsing. For other DJ Software, you can use the software's own MIDI mapping function. A pair of Dicers give you a total of 60 MIDI controls.
Performance Buttons with Visual Feedback
Backlit, multi-color, soft touch "dice" buttons, provide immediate LED feedback from Serato Scratch Live software.
Default Setup for Serato Scratch Live
Dicer is pre-programmed to take advantage of the cue point and looping functions in Serato Scratch Live, including "Hot Cues", "Auto Roll" and "Loop Roll".
Works with All Major DJ Software
Dicer is fully MIDI assignable, so it can be set up to control almost any software, including Traktor Scratch Pro. Up to 60 assignable MIDI controls are available from a pair of Dicers.
USB Bus-Powered
Dicer gets all the power it needs from a single USB cable, with no need for an external power supply. A mini Jack cable transmits power and data to the second Dicer.
A Fully Cass Compliant MIDI Device
The Dicer is a plug and play device, so no need to install any drivers.
Connections Micro USB 1.1 connector; the most robust and compact USB connection
Kensington lock space
Mini-Jack connector for connecting pairs
Controls 5 large round multi-color back-lit trigger buttons
3 small round multi-color back-lit function buttons
Dimensions 3.5 x 0.5" (90 x 13mm)

    I would have given 5 stars if it came with a carrying case. They say that the dicers are sturdy enough to just throw in your DJ bag, but I'd prefer a little padding or a hard case with a place to keep the cables handy. This works great with Serato 2.1. I didn't realize that in addition to the three built in settings you also have shift levels (where you hold one button down while pressing another) that can be used to control other functions of serato like triggering samples etc, so that makes it great!

    This is a fun little pair of controllers for Serato scratch. The operating modes are fun to use and fast to learn. However you should note that these don't do anything serato can't already do on its own. Additionally if you have cdjs such as the 1200mk3 then you can already do the same features albeit in a different way using your cdjs looping and serato in absolute mode.

    Overall this is a fun, cheap novel controller for serato that you can use as shortcuts to easily loop and roll bpm matched tracks in serato.

    Comments about Novation Dicer Cue Point & Looping DJ Controller:

    Easy to learn, USB power, very useful if u do cues and loops often and can be use as control to move around Serato Scratch (after u do configurations), it fits Technics 1200s nicely and secure. I just don't like using the putty to secure the dicer on a cdj or laptop.

    I'm an Old School DJ and really had a hard time coverting over to Serato, but I'm still able to use my 12" Records which is great and having Dicer is that much better. Cannot go wrong with this product and the BEST PRICED!!

      Bought these to go along with my Audio Technica turntables and glad I did. These things are simple to use, ready for Serato right out of the box, and definitely have a good button feel. Minor issue for me is that I can't adapt it to the corners of my table without elevating over one of the start/stop buttons but it can be done with the application of some putty they provide in the box if you want. Overall, you get the pair for a good price, easy to use, professional quality...good buy!

        This is a great product to have access to hot cues and loops on your dj software. It's not incredibly difficult to learn how to use and for gear, not expensive at all. Works with Serato and Traktor.

          Comments about Novation Dicer Cue Point & Looping DJ Controller:

          VERY FAST response. Puts any button control you want at your finger tips. If you are a turntablist you will love this. Just like the old method of tape cuing on a real record you can set cue point and jump to them in an instant. The Dicer will work with programs other then Serato. I use it with Virtual DJ Pro as well. It is natively supported by Virtual DJ so no mapping is required.

                            Before i would use my laptop to repeat a que over and over as to create my own beat before i play a song. However, with a laptop the cursor moves when u do this rapidly, of course u know how bad that would b with a live audience. With dicer that can never happen so i can really do me when it comes to editing/mixing a part of a song and setting que points fast.

                                Absolutely wonderful, cue points at the touch of a button on vinyl, very awesome. Havent had any serious problems out of mine. If you unplug them and plug them back in (via usb not 1/8th) they wont work till you restart Serato.. so... don't unplug em! Thats the only issue I have had and that was my fault (kinda). In version 2.2 the Dicers dont want to be reprogrammed.

                                Adds alot of possibilities to your set....Fits nicely in 45 adpater slot and causes no needle bounce when using. The 10 user programmable midis for each dicer are awesome. Looping on the fly and beat rolling without having to lift your hands from the turntable is where its at! Get These if you use real turntables(1200s) and serato.
