Novation’s New “DICER” Compact Back-lit Multi-Surface Midi Controller

I’ve had a love-hate relationship with Novation. In the studio it has taken me a while to get going with a Novation ReMOTE 37SL Midi Controller which I I’ve yet to figure out completely, its extensive array of menus are somewhat cumbersome to navigate. A latency problem that creates a “creeping” or “progressive” latency effect pretty much renders the whole keyboard section of the controller unusable after a few minutes of turning it on. Weird thing is that it seems as though the faders and knobs work just fine (no latency)!

But let’s put that aside, now take a look at Novation’s new “Dicer”, a combo of two controllers that are Midi mappable to our favorite DJ programs and can be used to control just about any parameter in the software of your choice.

Videos and more after the break…

Here’s our first DJ “feature” or “testimonial” for the blog, a recent new friend of the SHORT-KUTS™ family who sent us his feedback via the SHORT-KUTS™ Facebook Fan Page along with some ill shots of his MacBook Pro and SHORT-KUTS™ For ScratchLIVE™ 2.0. Also, Josh happens to be one of the world’s most dedicated Serato Control Record collectors, I dare to say, in the whole planet? More on that at the bottom of this post!
