The new Serato DJ 1.8 software has been announced and it will include some major new updates like the ability to remap DJ controller functions and Key Detection/Key Shifting. DJ's will soon be able to remap certain functions of their DJ controllers to do other actions within the software. Users will now get a free Key Detection component to Serato DJ which shows in color-coded keys so DJ's can easily see the format at a glance. The users who have the Serato Pitch N Time plug-in will now be able to key shift and key sync meaning they can harmonically sync one track to another by altering the key to one that is more suitable. This new update will be available by the end of October 2015. Check out the full press release below for more details.
