    Default Q: What's a good alternative to a pair of Novation Dicers?

    I've got Turntables, Traktor and a Mixer, and I'm really happy with my home setup. Now all I need are some extra controls, I was hoping to get some dicers only to find they have been discontinued. Do you guys know of any good alternatives?

    You can still buy them. They’ll still come with a full manufacturers warranty.

    Buy a pair.

    This is good to know however I've been struggling to find new ones online and at stores that I visit here in Europe. Any one know of any alternatives? I'm sure there was a company out there that made a clone with square buttons.

    That was DJ Tech. They never materialised.

    If you can't find dicers, you can try a Midi Fighter or equivalent, they have 16 buttons which is the same as 2 dicers.

    Since when were they discontinued? I see them for sale all over the place.

    Real question is why would you in this day and age get Dicers (other than price) when you have so many other options that offer full control (track loading, FX control) that you don't get with Dicers.
    Of course, assuming you are not a hard core turntablist that needs controls as close to fingers as possible.
