Not every DJ has a lighting designer and visuals team, but that doesn't mean that unique lighting effects have to be out of reach. With the new SoundSwitch hardware/software package, DJs will be able to write lighting scripts for songs in their library - it's like a DAW for lighting. When a track is played back with Serato DJ, the associated lighting cues and effects are played back automatically in time with the tracks in the mix.
Trying out a new DJ software is never easy. There are many reasons to avoid it - but with Pioneer DJ's newcomer, Rekordbox DJ, it's not as difficult as you might expect. Almost any Serato DJ or Traktor Pro gear can be used with the software, without paying extra or hacking.
