The Roland DJ-505 is a two-channel, four-deck Serato DJ controller with a portable design, pro-grade build, and advanced feature set, ideal for mobile applications, club DJing, live performance, and music production.
Two large, low-latency platters on the DJ-505 provide responsive, lag-free performance for turntable-style scratches, while eight pads with 13 modes offer dedicated controls for Serato DJ. Also included are built-in drum kits from Roland’s classic TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines, and each kit contains eight sounds that can be played on the performance pads and triggered from the onboard TR-S sequencer. The sequencer has a dedicated TR-style interface, where TR drum sounds and Serato samples can be adjusted in real time using panel knobs. The DJ-505’s mixer is Serato DVS Upgrade Ready, and can be used standalone with multi-players or turntables connected to the line and phono inputs, and comes with Serato Tool Kit that includes Serato Flip, Serato Pitch ’n Time DJ and all Serato FX Expansion Packs.
The DJ-505 functions as a USB audio/MIDI interfaces with 24-bit/48 kHz fidelity and high-resolution digital-to-analog converters. The DJ-505 also includes a MIDI output for controlling and syncing external devices, and a ¼-inch mic input with gate, hi-pass, reverb, and echo FX.
