We have a nifty little DJ controller at our hands here made by one of our favorite brands, Novation Music. If you’re a digital-based DJ looking to have a super convenient visual feedback of your cue points and loops, the Novation Dicer may be something worth looking at. It was actually a result of a collaboration between Novation and the creator of DJ Tech Tools. With some nice aesthetics for those of us who perform or merely like a slick looking setup in our studio, MIDI assignment and compatibility with most DJ software out there, it may be a piece of gear you can’t live without from now on.
Novation music has really started to set themselves apart from the competition in terms of equipment and recording gear. Their MIDI keyboards especially have started to really grow on me, and this particular 25-key mini MIDI keyboard is getting some very positive reviews around the music world. For only $100 retail, this thing packs an unbelievably powerful punch. A huge plus of the Launchkey Mini is the plug-and-plug play and seamless compatibility with most DAWs, let alone the surprisingly smooth pads that are built-in to the machine.
