The Novation Dicer is a palm-sized cue point and looping controller that has been designed to fit exactly where you need it: on your turntables CDJs mixer or laptop. Dicer works with almost any DJ software and is optimised for use with Serato Scratch Live Traktor Scratch Duo/Pro and Traktor Pro. Browse through playlists nudge tracks backwards and forwards trigger samples cue-points loops and FX with this compact controller featuring coloured LEDs to tell you what mode youre in. Dicer always ships in pairs – one for each side.
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 Dicers pads a different colour so you can instantly see what mode the pads in even in 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 Dicers pads using Scratch Lives MIDI-learn function. Dicers buttons can also learn other software functions. So you can assign different FX to the pads or 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.
