  • A selection of Roland drum machines now sync automatically with Serato's DJ performance software. If you ever wanted to add extra drum patterns or samples to your DJ set, the Serato x Roland TR-SYNC update streamlines the process for Serato and Roland users. The TR-8S, its predecessor the TR-8, the TR-08 and the TR-09 from the Boutique series will now automatically lock to the tempo of your Serato set via USB. Unlike other syncing systems, the new protocol requires no setup, meaning configuring MIDI settings is unnecessary. It will be available as a free update in Serato DJ Pro and via the firmware on the Roland drum machines. This follows news announced in December, 2018 that Serato DJ would now provide the ability to mix tracks directly from SoundCloud. Take a look inside Roland headquarters in our 2015 feature.
