Today at NAMM 2015, the Serato team has announced a new Serato DJ Club Kit that will allow users of certain Pioneer and Allen & Heath four channel Club mixers to work in digital vinyl setup mode with external decks and Serato DJ software control. Users of the Pioneer DJM-900NSX/DJM-850 or the Allen & Heath DB2/DB4 can connect to the computer via USB and have full Serato DJ timecode control using the Serato DJ Club Kit which will run $169.

The Serato DJ Club kit is a combination of the Serato DJ software and the DVS Expansion Pack License. The user then needs to get their own timecode vinyl or CD's and connect one of the four mixers via USB to the computer and it's ready to roll. Serato DJ support without the need of a Serato soundcard interface as the timecode signal will utilize the internal soundcards of these mixers. This is a cool step in the right direction and I'm eager to see what else Serato has up their sleeve next!

Check out the full press release and links below for more information and stay tuned for more NAMM 2015 coverage!

MixEmergency 2.4 Compatible with Serato DJ [Video]

When the Serato DJ software was released, the MixEmergency software plugin that allows Serato users to DJ with video was left out in the cold as it was incompatible with the newest form of their popular DJ software. Serato DJ users were forced to use the Serato Video plug-in to do their Video DJ sets. 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.
