First there was Serato Scratch. Then there was Serato itch. Then there was Serato Intro. Then there was………………..

…….Serato DJ. Itch worked with some controllers that were specifically made for it but worked differently depending on what controller it was you had bought (Allen & Heath version was specific to their controller, Novation Twitch version was specific to Twitch etc) and then they scrapped Itch and announced Serato DJ…which originally only worked on a limited range of controllers and didn’t work with any of the existing Serato DJ hardware. Confused? So were the majority of Seratos’ users and the DJ Community at large.

Serato DJ 1.6 is finally here and it’s like a big cosy blanket of Digital DJ warmth, finally bringing together the world of USB DJ Controllers and Timecode Vinyl/CD into one bit of software that works with SL2, SL3, SL4, and pretty much all the major brands of MIDI DJ Controllers. Thank you Serato. Took a while but you got there.
