From Our Research Team:
An Awesome Upgrade for Any DJ Deck!There are many excellent DJ controllers and control surfaces out there that take advantage of Serato Scratch's advanced cue and looping functions. On the other hand, there are many more that don't. You don't need a new deck in order to get the most out of Scratch anymore - all you need is a Novation Dicer! The result of a collaboration with Serato and DJ TechTools' Ean Golden (a DJ whose practical approach to DJing and using computer technology has been an inspiration to many of today's hottest up-and-coming DJs), the Dicer extends straightforward usefulness and software integration into Serato Scratch.
The Dicer lets you instantly set cue points, which you can use for hot cues, loops, rolls, and more. Each mode lights the Dicer's buttons up a different color, so you get the instant feedback you need - not to mention more cool lights on your deck. And with the Dicer's "learn" function, you're not restricted to preset functions or even to using Serato Scratch. So, you can use the Dicer to browse your crate, load tracks, trigger effects, and more - in short, anything that will make your show cooler than before.
The Dicer hardware comes in a pair of palm-sized cue-point/looping controllers that fit perfectly on the corner of your turntables - right where you need them! In fact, if you use Technics SL 1200s or similar decks, you can mount the Dicer hardware right onto the deck. Otherwise, you can use Novation's DJ putty to stick them just about anywhere. If you want options, you'll get them with the Dicer DJ controller by Novation!

I have a Rane SL3 and do not have one of the Rane mixers. Even if I did have one I would still buy this. That's how legit the... read more [+]y are.
1. They work RIGHT out of the box with Serato. No mapping or fussing.
2. 3 modes as follows:
Mode 1: Add Cuepoint, Cue Cuepoint, Delete Cuepoint.
Mode 2: Beat Repeat (1,1/2,1/4,1/8,1/6) You can custom set this in Serato as well.
Mode 3: Loop (16 bars, 8 bars, 4 bars, 2 bars, 1 bar).
If all this isn't enough for you, they actually have made it so you can assign 10 user adjustable commands onto it.
3. It's so easy to use that the user guide is 1 page and explains everything in one table.
PRO TIP: I chose to stick these (with the included reusable DJ putty) onto my mixer. Why? When I stuck them onto my turntables (like I saw in videos) I noticed the needle would skip sometimes when I would hit them hard. In all fairness I'm using very cheap turntables.
Bottom Line: You can't go wrong with these. Buy them now! close [-]
The Novation Dicer is the must-have mobile DJ/producer's dream "mini controller." With its design set perfectly for Serato Scratch live DJ's, and a custom fit for Technics turntables, it controls loop functionality, hot cues, and loop roll for Serato. Plus it can be re-mapped for virtually any MIDI function within Serato. Remove the Technics mounting adapter, and the Dicer can fit cleanly on a table, laptop, or even a CDJ. I've personally tested the Dicer with a variety of other programs. It works perfectly as a loop controller for Torq and Traktor, as well as a functional controller for Ableton Live. If your DAW or other application allows MIDI devices, the Dicer might just be the perfect small footprint controller for you. For DJs, the Dicer is the ideal controller for adding that extra bit of performance to set you apart from the competition.
