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.  Roland makes this announcement just in time for the Atlatic City DJ Expo which starts tomorrow.  We'll be there to put these through the paces and bring you a first hand look at these nice new controllers. 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 the videos below for an overview of each and please subscribe to our Youtube Channel so you can be the first to see all that goes on at the DJ Expo 2017!

The new TR-08 will only cost $850 and is a digital representation of the original analog 808. The digital TR-08 is so similar to the original that Egyptian Lover (808 King) has a complete demo showing the old and the new side-by-side for this dope comparison.

[DJ Expo 2017] Rane Seventy-Two Mixer & Twelve Controller Video Walkthrough

We were on hand at the DJ Expo in Atlantic City, NJ Earlier today to talk to the Rane people about their latest products. The newly announced Rane Seventy-Two Mixer and Twelve Turntable Controller are a reality. The Rane Seventy-Two mixer is a two channel battle mixer which looks like a Pioneer DJM-S9 with a screen in the middle and three Rane Magnetic faders. The Rane Twelve Turntable Controller is a solid all metal digital turntable that does not use a needle or tonearm for sound, but rather digital USB connections to work with Serato DJ. Check out my quick rundown video below and stay tuned for reviews as soon as these bad boys are released. Check out the additional info below for even more on this dope new setup.
