Topic: Roland DJ-202 controller

Inviato Thu 07 Sep 17 @ 9:54 pm
Yes, and I don't fully get why they brand it as entry level
Of course it doesn't have the full sequencer part, but no other controllers than the DJ-505 and DJ-808 have that

It has trim and filter on each channel
It looks like the jog-wheels are the same as the Roland-505
It looks like the pad section is a real 8-pad pad section (not just 8 buttons for other functions, that is placed so they look like a pad section, like on a lot of entry level controllers)
Only the looping doesn't have dedicated buttons, and the effect sections is a little limited with only one knob

Still, this looks more like a mid-level / semi-pro controller to me...
And at that price level I may just get one to play with :)

They're a bait to get you started with the AIRA line.

The company never gives a date for any controller support. They have a lot on their plates, and can't give a time. I personally never buy a controller until support is available. I just bought a DDJ-SR2, and a Numark DJ2GO2. If these companies want to lock their controllers, that's fine by me, I only buy controllers that are supported by the software of my choice. You will have to be patient, just like the rest of us.

End of the month they say

But it looks like you are using a free home license of VDJ. That won't work with a controller
