DJ 808 Tour Chicago

Just a last-minute head’s up: Guitar Center on Halsted Street is hosting the Chicago stop for Roland’s DJ-808 Tour today (December 7 2016).

Roland, Serato and V-MODA will be providing a look at Roland’s new (and confusingly named) DJ-808 product line which blurs the boundaries between DJing, live performance and music production:

The all-new DJ-808 is the first DJ instrument to combine Serato DJ software with a built-in TR drum machine (808, 909, 707, 606) and sample sequencer. With AIRA Link USB ports, VT Vocal Transformer, ultra high-performance platters, and layers of performance pad features, the DJ-808 expands creative possibilities for DJs, producers and electronic musicians. Prizes and giveaways all event long.

Guitar Center is at 2633 N. Halsted Street, and the Tour event kicks off at 6pm. More info here.
