Dicer is a performance controller that's integrated with the cue-point and looping features of Serato Scratch Live. Supplied in pairs, the compact USB-powered devices are compatible with any Scratch Live setup.
To complement the launch of Dicer, Serato has made available a public beta version of Scratch Live 2.1, which can be downloaded from users' Serato.com accounts. Scratch Live 2.1 automatically maps Dicer to key software functions and provides full LED feedback. Users of the current 2 software can control all cue-point and looping functions, but will need to use Scratch Live's MIDI Learn function to assign Dicer's pads to software controls.
Novation has also extended its Dicer launch competition—to win a Rane TTM 57SL mixer for Scratch Live—for one week. For your chance to win, visit the Dicer competition page. The last date for entries is July 8.
