Serato DJ Launches for Mixtrack Pro, DDJ-ERGO, MC-2000

11

When Serato announced the plans to slowly roll new versions of their Serato DJ software out for a number of previously supported ITCH controllers, there was much rejoicing – but users have had to wait their turn. The software launched last month with support exclusively for the Pioneer DDJ-SX, but every other controller has been pending, with only a rough estimation for each controller’s launch.

So the first round of controllers is up to have their day- DJs who own a Numark Mixtrack Pro, a Pioneer DDJ-ERGO, or a Denon MC-2000 unit will be able to purchase the upgrade to Serato DJ 1.1 software for $199 and get playing on it immediately. Of course, none of these units include four-channel mixing sections, so you’ll be limited to mixing on two decks or rapidly switching between deck control.

We haven’t had a chance to play around with the mappings for each of these units yet- but we suspect their behavior will be near identical to their Serato DJ Intro mappings – feel free to share your results in the comments below!

Other Serato DJ Intro controllers will be getting support over the next few weeks in the winter, and ITCH controllers will be getting upgraded in the early spring. (Serato cleverly refer to these as “Northern Winter” and “Northern Spring” respectively – as it’s just getting the summer months down in NZ!).

    I am having some problems with my Denon MC2000 and dj intro. I have tried it on two different computers and the results are the same….skipping drop outs and refusal to load….when I try Virtual DJ it works fine on both computers and the MC2000..it leads me to believe it is the software. Serato needs to address this.

  • And I just got Traktor properly mapped to my MX Pro, which took endless hours of wondering what the hell were the people who posted that mapping in TraktorBible thinking when the play button was not working and the hotcues, while working, toggled the goddamn EQ kills that I wanted to get rid of…

    • yeah, I have a mixtrack pro and im better off saving for a timecode setup or a S4 than paying for fancy software, when DJ Intro and Traktor work perfectly well.

    hi res jog wheels all round.

    your move NI…

  • Are they really expecting people to shell out 200$ to upgrade a software that was previously free with their already expensive controllers? and since those controllers were made for Itch, will they not be outdated and only able to control the software partially? who makes these shady business propositions?

    • Escalaid

      Isn’t the upgrade for Itch controllers for free?

      Two sub par products for more than the par. Sounds like a bargain!
