    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 Dicer's pads a different colour, so you can instantly see what mode the pads in, even in dark clubs and venues.
    Although Dicer has been designed to integrate with Serato, it also works with other DJ software.
    Setup files for Traktor Scratch and Traktor Scratch Pro are available online from Novation.
    These files assign Dicer's controls to various functions, including Cueing, Play/Stop, Looping, FX and browsing. For other DJ Software, you can use the software's own MIDI mapping function. A pair of Dicers give you a total of 60 MIDI controls.
    Dicer's 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.
    Features
    Performance buttons with visual feedback
    Backlit, multi-colour, soft touch 'dice' buttons, provide immediate LED feedback from Serato Scratch Live software.
    Locks straight onto Technics SL 1200/10, and similar decks
    Using the 45-adapter hole, Dicer places looping control right where you need it - on your decks, millimetres away from your vinyl.
    Attaches to CDJs, mixers and laptops.
    With Novation's reusable 'DJ putty', your Dicers can slot into even the most cramped of DJ performance set-ups, sticking cleanly and directly onto your CDJs, mixer or laptop.
    Default set-up for Serato Scratch Live
    Dicer is pre-programmed to take advantage of the cue point and looping functions in Serato Scratch Live, including 'Hot Cues', 'Auto Roll' and 'Loop Roll'.
    Works with all major DJ software
    Dicer is fully MIDI assignable, so it can be set up to control almost any software, including Tractor Scratch Pro. Up to 60 assignable MIDI controls are available from a pair of Dicers.
    USB bus-powered
    Dicer gets all the power it needs from a single USB cable, with no need for an external power supply. A mini Jack cable transmits power and data to the second Dicer.
    Ready-made setup files for other DJ software
    Quick setup files for other major DJ software, including Traktor Scratch Pro, are available to download for free from Novation.
    A Fully class compliant MIDI device
    Dicer is a plug and play device, so no need to install any drivers
