Roland today introduced the DJ-707M DJ Controller — a four-channel, four-deck Serato DJ Pro controller.
DJ-707M’s built-in 24-bit/48 kHz audio interface and D/A conversion for Master, Booth, and Zone outputs include separate 4-Band output EQ, multiband compressor and limiter on each. Built-in automatic feedback suppression adjusts speaker output automatically. Each assignable output’s separate EQ, multiband compressor, and limiter output settings can also be saved and recalled with 10 Scene Presets.
The DJ-707M features seven inputs, including front mounted auxiliary inputs for easily connecting instruments from guest musicians or two additional microphones. The DJ-707M features two XLR microphone inputs. Each channel also has its own gain, low-cut switch, and noise gate, plus effects from reverbs and delays to key-based auto-pitching and auto-ducking.
Dual USB inputs allow up to two instances of Serato to be run on separate computers. USB input can also be used to connect an iOS device for music playback.
Dedicated Serato DJ Pro controls allow for creation and triggering of hot cues, loops, effects, drum patterns, and samples, plus switching between four Serato decks. Roland’s hardware effects can be assigned individually to the dedicated hardware Filter/FX knob to finesse blends or accentuate scratches.
DJ-707M’s standalone mixer allows computer-free performance using CDJs, turntables, mics, and more.
The DJ-707M also contains preset rhythms for adding punch to classic tracks, crafting transitions, or creating accompaniment for instrumentalists. Other on-board OSC sound effects include sweepers and synth stabs.

The DJ-707M will be available in the U.S. in August 2019 for $999.
