Serato DJ 1.7.3 Out Now; Brings XDJ-1000 HID Support

Serato has just launched a new minor update to the Serato DJ software (version 1.7.3) that adds official HID support for the new Pioneer XDJ-1000, the new media player that’s ditched the CD drives. The new update means the entire XDJ unit “pre-mapped to Serato DJ when using HID mode, allowing you to use the XDJ-1000 to control many of Serato DJ’s features such as, Library Navigation, Looping, Slip Mode, Cue Points, Quantize, Sync and much more.”

As always, the only drawback is that you’ll need to use the XDJ-1000s alongside supported Serato DJ hardware like a DJM-900SRT, Rane SL4 audio card, or even the tiny Akai AMX mixer.

The software update is available now here – and if you’re itching to get a pair of XDJ-1000s, we’re now taking preorders for units in the DJTT store (they’re still pending a complete release here in the US).
