Novation Dicer Scratch Live Hardware Controller

Cue-point, looping and FX control for Digital DJs

This palm-sized cue point and looping controller has been designed to fit exactly where you need it: on your turntables, CDJs, mixer or laptop. Dicer always ships in pairs - one for each side.

Dicer works with almost any DJ software and it is optimised for use with:

  • Serato Scratch Live
  • Traktor Scratch Duo/Pro
  • Traktor Pro
A pair of Dicers gives you a total of 60 buttons:

Dicer can trigger samples, cue-points, loops and FX. You can use Dicer to browse through playlists, nudge tracks backwards and forwards or it can be freely assigned to whatever functions you want. Coloured LEDs behind each button tell you what mode you are in.

Dicer was designed by Novation in collaboration with Ean Golden - DJ and curator of DJ Tech Tools. Ean came up with the concept of a controller that fits on the turntable, and his contribution has been crucial in helping Novation design and develop Dicer.

USB bus-powered

Dicer gets all the power it needs from a single USB cable, with no need for an external power supply. A mini jack cable transmits power and data to the second Dicer.

Ready-made setup files for other DJ software

Quick setup files for other major DJ software, including Traktor Scratch Pro, are available to download for free here.

A fully class-compliant MIDI device

Dicer is a plug and play device, so no need to install any drivers.


Performance buttons with visual feedback
  • Backlit, multi-colour, soft touch 'dice' buttons, provide immediate LED feedback from Serato Scratch Live software.
Locks straight onto Technics SL 1200/10, and similar decks
  • Using the 45 adapter hole, Dicer places looping control right where you need it - on your decks, millimetres away from your vinyl.
Attaches to CDJs, mixers and laptops.
  • With Novation's reusable 'DJ putty', your Dicers can slot into even the most cramped of DJ performance set-ups, sticking cleanly and directly onto your CDJs, mixer or laptop.
Default setup for Serato Scratch Live
  • Dicer is pre-programmed to take advantage of the cue point and looping functions in Serato Scratch Live, including 'Hot Cues', 'Auto Roll' and 'Loop Roll'.
Works with all major DJ software
  • Dicer is fully MIDI assignable, so it can be set up to control almost any software, including Tractor Scratch Pro. Up to 60 assignable MIDI controls are available from a pair of Dicers.

Pros: Easy To Use,Durable,Compact,Versatile

These are like a little piece of heaven. Simple to use and the plug and play aspect is very nice.

Hands down LOVE this device.
Pros: Easy To Use,Compact,Lightweight,Versatile,Durable

VERY FAST response. Puts any button control you want at your finger tips. If you are a turntablist you will love this. Just like the old method of tape cuing on a real record you can set cue point and jump to them in an instant. The Dicer will work with programs other then Serato. I use it with Virtual DJ Pro as well. It is natively supported by Virtual DJ so no mapping is required.

Great Addition
Pros: Lightweight,Easy To Use

I picked up these Novation Dicers, not sure if they would be a waste of money or not, but was pleasantly surprised by how easy they are to learn and use. The cues, loops and other functions are pretty intuitive, and worth the money, adding the opportunity to enhance your performance.

Pros: Easy To Hook Up Program,Very easy to use,Clear Sound,Durable,It Will Help Your Mixing,Lightweight,Versatile,Compact,Easy To Use

I am a NYC DJ living in Upstate NY currently. I have been DJing for 36 yrs and recently purchased the Novation Dicers. I use the dicers with my turntables Technique SL-1210MK2's along with the Serato SL2. I have my dicers hooked up with my laptop and so far to date, havent had a problem of any sort. I enjoy these dicers and i believe it was a good investment.

Amazing Product!
Pros: Versatile,Compact,Clear Sound,Easy To Use,Lightweight

The Dicers are great! Very portable and easy to connect. With SL 2.1 they are ready to go right out the box, no need to hassle with setting midi assignments. I use them at every gig and the possibilities are endless, they really help me tap into my creativity during live sets.

Dicer is awesome!
Pros: Easy To Use,Lightweight,Clear Sound,Compact,Versatile
Cons: Positioning weird for cdj

First the only con: I use this with my cdj1000 setup and the ONLY bad part about them is that they cover up the master tempo button.

Now the Pros: GREAT little midi controllers. They work absolutely seamlessly with my sl3 setup. Just plug them in to a free usb port, fire up my serato, and im ready to jam. Looping, cueing, and rolling are spot on and react to the slightest button pressing. The video of the junglist using them and how fast his finger hits the button and the controller responds is EXACTLY true. Now I can FINALLY use a roll effect with the echo effect of my djm800 at the same time on the same chan. Love it!

Oh, and the con is a moot point when the dicers are used in conjunction with sl3 on cdjs, as you cant use deck effects with serato anyway.

Best/Convenient Midi On The Market.
Pros: Easy To Use,Great value,Multi-Features,Versatile,Compact,Saves Time,Lightweight,Easy to install
Cons: none

Looking into the Dicer at first glance, you don't know what to make of it. Looks kinda funny, and I've had plenty of bad luck with other midi devices in the past. But I gave it a try, I needed something that would do cues, and loops on the fly without having to hot cue on the laptop. As long as you have Serato 2.1 installed, its ready out of the box. First time I used it was right at show time, set up warmed up for a few minutes, and it was time to work. It didn't even take 5 mins to get used to how it worked. The roll feature (green lights) is amazing, and having the ability to loop without having to use the mouse pad, and change from 16 to 8,4,2,1 was just amazing, right on the beat is very easy to use! Highly recommend, best midi for the best price!

will the dicers work with traktor scratch duo?
DANNY on Feb 10, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes! The Dicers can be used with Traktor Scratch Duo. You can also download Dicer mapping files from Novation to map them to other software too. Give us a call and we can get you a great price on these.
Does this product or the software have a "MEMO" function so you can preset cue points?

Thanks for your time.
Ryan on Nov 3, 2011
BEST ANSWER: The Dicer is especially made to preset cue points and loops. You can also midi map it for something different.
do you have to plug the serato box in too? if so what mode do i use it in?
Nate on Sep 12, 2010
BEST ANSWER: im pretty sure you dont, in this case to trigger the cue points i dont think you need serato to be plugged in if you are going to mess with the cue points, i have a AKAI LPK25 and i use it with serato to mess with the cue points and effects
can i use the dicers for hot cues if im using recordbox instead of traktor or serato with my cdj900 and djm900?
ali on Jun 19, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes you use these for that function.
Will this work with windows 7?
null on May 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will.
I have the Numark TTX1 turntables- not the Tech 1200s. For those who have the Numark TTX1 and the dicer, how does it fit on top of the turntable?

Thanks so much in advance.
null on Sep 6, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Im not sure what part you would fit it in, but different people will set it differently depending on preference.
According to the description, they are sold in pairs. Which is it?
null on Aug 1, 2010
BEST ANSWER: The Novation Dicer Scratch Live Hardware Controller comes in pairs.
