Sept 9 2016 Roland launched a new product to add to its series of hardware that can be conveniently link together to form the
ultimate production station. Here is one of the products which I feel will make a leap in the production/dj realm.
The Roland DJ-808 with Serato capability.
For those who were looking forward to Ableton and Bridge and got thrown by a learning curve, this may
add some ammo to accomplish those secret production tricks.
