The Roland DJ-707M is a compact and well-built four-channel DJ controller with several outputs and inputs and comes bundled with Serato DJ. The DJ-707M even can save input and output settings in "scenes" so that DJs can recall them at a later date for easy setup.

The DJ-707M also has pre-loaded Roland TR drum patterns built in so you can easily sync them with the music playing in Serato or over your live inputs. The effects and microphone sections are new and intuitive, and all the Serato Performance Pad Modes are represented here as well.

[DJ Expo 2017] Roland DJ-505 & DJ-202 Walkthrough Video

We were on hand at the DJ Expo in Atlantic City, NJ Earlier today to talk to the Roland company about their latest products. Roland continues to march forward with their DJ range lineup that now includes the new DJ-505 which is a trimmed down 2-channel version of the DJ-808 we reviewed earlier this year and a DJ-202 which is an entry level Serato DJ Intro compact/affordable controller. The DJ-505 looks really cool and compact while also being fun to use as it includes the Roland drum sounds that made the original DJ-808 a BLAST to use. The DJ-202 looks to be Roland's entry-level controller which can compete with other smaller DJ controllers in the same $300 price range. Check out our quick walkthrough video right from the DJ Expo showroom floor to see these new controllers in action.
