It's pretty cool to see a huge music store devote such a large section to the Serato DJ brand and lots of different stars who came out to support, sign autographs, and connect with fans. This was obviously a successful event, and they may even follow this up with other stores also installing a Serato DJ section. Check out the press release below for more details on the event and be sure to check out the Serato DJ section if you're near the Brooklyn Guitar Center.

Now, Serato has made things right by allowing Inklen to produce a new version of MixEmergency 2.4 that is now fully-compatilbe with Serato DJ.
