Thanks to the addition of Roland’s patented Analogue Circuit Behaviour technology the DJ-505’s integrated drum machine faithfully recreates the classic, authentic sound of Roland’s most popular drum machines, the TR-606, 707, 808, and 909. These drum machines have spawned entire genres from hip-hop, and rap to house, techno and electro and are some of the most influential drum sounds ever to grace music. The 505 DJ controller allows you to recreate the original sound and character of the classic machines and provides you with the capabilities to program and create exciting rhythms and tracks using the same sounds as the world’s foremost musical icons. You can even finely tune your TR drum sounds and samples thanks to the controls for volume, attack, decay, and tune as well as easily build sequences using the famous step-based TR-S pad interface.

A rich set of features combined with deep integration with Serato DJ Pro software gives you new creative possibilities enabling you to remix, produce and perform all from one compact unit. The 16 step sequencer lets you quickly program drum patterns using authentic TR drum sounds or samples from the Serato Sampler which will then perfectly synchronise to your tracks allowing you to create seamless transitions, live remixes, and beef up your original tracks. An Instant-Record mode lets you record on-the-fly, real-time sampler sequences or make use of the Serato Sampler’s advanced abilities to layer and sync multiple audio tracks and loops within the eight sampler slots. A MIDI output lets you precisely synchronise external MIDI devices and instruments to the TR sequencer.

You can add a booming kick drum to your tracks or even program a beat alongside an acapella making it ultra-easy and intuitive to blend various musical elements to your records.
