Short and sweet: video DJing software MixEmergency is rolling out a new version that is compatible with the 1.6 version of Serato DJ, released earlier this month. Serato’s release of a new unified codebase under the DJ moniker means that many Scratch Live users will be migrating to the new software in the coming months. Since Inklen’s MixEmergency software is only compatible with Serato, this update seemed inevitable.
The new update gives controllerist DJs who were stuck on the ITCH/Serato DJ side of the fence a video mixing solution that goes beyond the Serato Video plug-in, offering features like a FX sequencer, advanced MIDI mapping, beatgrid synced effects, and even Syphon output for integrating into a larger visuals solution.
The update is free for owners of ME2, a $99 upgrade for ME1 users, and $199 for new users and available on Inklen’s website.
