Serato DJ Updated with New DJ Pro & DJ Lite Editions

Serato Audio Research has updated its popular DJ software with two new editions: DJ Pro and DJ Lite. Serato DJ Pro software is a complete re-design of Serato DJ, adding a new hardware-free practice mode, extra functions and rock-solid stability. Serato DJ Lite is an upgrade to Serato Intro and features the same hardware-free practice mode among other updates.

DJ Lite

Serato DJ Lite is a re-vamped version of Serato Intro and is the perfect piece of software for getting to grips with core DJ skills using Roland DJ Controllers. The updated program includes a new Practice Mode that enables you to mix two tracks together without connecting any hardware. This is ideal for laptop musicians on the move, giving you keyboard control over many different parameters.

An additional Performance Pad mode displays cue points clearly which helps with planning and performing your routines. The new software is optimised for today's high-resolution devices including Retina screens, 4K and UHD displays. A new help section with tutorials and guides makes it far easier to develop your skills. ­­

DJ Pro

Serato DJ Pro is a complete re-working of Serato DJ software; it features rock-solid stability along with brand-new features. DJ Pro supports all Serato DJ-compatible hardware, so you'll have no problems integrating it with your current Serato setup.

DJ Pro includes an expanded version of Practice Mode which gives you keyboard control over many different functions without needing to connect any hardware, including creating loops and manipulating tempo and flips. DJ Pro also integrates with Serato Video, providing support for many video formats to create your own music videos and project them live.

The software also features 64-bit support with virtually no limit on your library size. The Performance Pad view lets you display your cue points with improved clarity, while the high-resolution-optimized display is perfect for modern devices.

Available at Gear4music

At Gear4music, Serato DJ Intro software is currently supplied with the Roland DJ-202 DJ Controller and can now be upgraded, free of charge, to Serato DJ Lite.

The fully-featured Serato DJ software is currently included with the Roland DJ-505 DJ Controller and the Roland DJ-808 DJ Controller - now available with a free upgrade to Serato DJ Pro.
