Unveiled: The Roland DJ-707M 4-Channel, 4-Deck DJ Controller for Serato DJ Pro


Further expanding the line started by its flagship DJ-808, Roland has introduced the DJ-707M DJ controller. Like the DJ-808, the DJ-707M is designed for tight integration with Serato software and boasts a 4-channel, 4-deck configuration. For DJs, MCs, producers, and remixers who want the same style and essential functions found on the DJ-808, but don’t need its integrated TR-S drum machine, the DJ-707M is the perfect solution.

For starters, it has two large platters with color-coded buttons for quick deck selection, so you’ll always know what deck you’re controlling at a glance. Below each platter, you’ll find eight RGB performance pads and Serato DJ Pro controls for efficient triggering of hot cues, loops, effects, drum patterns, and samples. Apply Serato FX via dedicated FX select buttons per deck, or use the onboard channel FX to initiate a different effect on each channel. For stand-alone mixing with sources such as CDJs, turntables, mics, and media players, the mixer—complete with trim, EQ, filter, FX, TR drum patterns, and more—is at your disposal, and it’s Serato DVS upgrade ready.

With seven inputs and three assignable output sections, the DJ-707M is packed with capable connectivity. Two USB inputs ensure that you can transition seamlessly between multiple Serato sessions on separate computers. The ability to use one USB input for an iOS device is a welcome function for emergency music playback. Channels 1-2 have stereo RCA line/phono inputs, while channels 3-4 sport stereo RCA line inputs. Each of the four channels features 3-band EQ, filter/FX, input trim, a level fader, and a 7-segment meter. Two 3-pin XLR jacks accommodate balanced microphones, and each can be enhanced with 3-band EQ, noise gating, anti-feedback, and vocal effects like reverb, echo, auto pitch, and automatic ducking. You also get an aux input with two 1/4" jacks, a 3.5mm mini jack, and a mic/mono/stereo selector.


There are plenty of outputs, too—all stereo and all fed by 24-bit / 48 kHz converters. Master outs on balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connectors, balanced 1/4" stereo booth outputs, and a zone out on RCA sockets are provided for maximum routing flexibility. Tweak EQ, multi-band compression, and limiting for each output section to ensure that your sound reaches its full potential, then save your settings for easy recall later. Plus, a 5-pin MIDI output is there on the rear panel for anyone who wants to synchronize a synth, drum machine, keyboard, or DAW with their Serato DJ Pro software.

Whether you are a music producer, DJ, remixer, or electronic artist, the DJ-707M can supercharge your Serato or stand-alone mixers. Stop by the B&H SuperStore or visit our website to learn more!
