Akai Pro AMX and Serato DJ
We covered the AMX back in August but it is now confirmed that it is fully supported by the release of Serato DJ 1.7.1. This controller is a dedicated 2-channel mixer that sits as an affordable solution for DJs who need a native mixer for their set-up. It is compact like the Kontrol Z1 and features the much appreciated mini innoFADER. The controls are what you expect to find on a mixer and this controller is definitely one to consider for Serato DJs looking for a compact mixer. You can read more about the AMX and its sister product, the Akai AFX.
Serato DJ 1.7.1 features all of the anticipated functionality that we have seen in the beta the past couple of months. The latest update contains the notable features such as Serato Flip, the SERATO DVS Expansion Pack, the improved MIDI mapping panel, and other important updates such as AM Mode, Chronological Cue Points which we have seen in the previous 1.7 release.
The newest version also patches two major bugs of not being able to rename session names in History panel and Sampler mode not functioning with the Pioneer DDJ-SZ. You can download Serato DJ 1.7.1 now and be sure to tell us what you think in the comments below!
