Serato & Roland Announce Partnership

Serato announces a new partnership with Roland, a world leader in music hardware.

Serato and Roland are joining forces to create something truly unique and that will redefine what it means to be a DJ. Drawing on the combined experience of both companies, this shared vision will be realised in a special announcement on "909 Day" (September 9th).

Young Ly, Serato CEO says: "Roland is an exciting new partner for Serato. It's inspiring to be working closely with a company with such rich heritage and expertise in the musical performance and production world, and responsible for so much of the music that DJs play night after night. Both companies are closely aligned in our vision for the future of DJing and performance, and we're excited to reveal this to the world."

As part of the 909 Day worldwide celebration, Serato HQ will be hosting a streaming event live from Auckland, New Zealand, where a special announcement will be made. You don't want to miss this!

I should be expect a sequencer/synth/etc?

Software update for the sp6, and a Roland hardware (accessory) for the release maybe.

We might finally have something to hold against traktor remix decks! Heck rekordbox is a serato clone now, but it has a sequencer too...we're getting behind the times.


I'd really like to see something with piano keys, but baby steps right?


Good timing too, I was just about to give rekordbox box a shot... Maybe no need in a few weeks.

Happy early bday djwesley. You shall refer to your birthday as 909 day forever now:)

Not trying to hijack this post too much, but what ever happened to getting back on board with Ableton and bringing Mixtape / Bridge-like functionality to SDJ? This was talked about many times in the past, and it's just went dark. I am slowly losing hope that the best way Ito record mixes is going to be buried in the trash pile of time.

will it have analogue circuit behaviour modeling or the word boutique in the blurb?

You see It's not the non sequitur negativity like that which makes everyone tell you to take a long walk off a short pier.

I think it just basically a software to hardware sync from Serato to the Roland TR8 using a new created midi for Serato.

lets hope what ever it is, it lasts longer than the bridge for ableton did.
