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.

Serato DJ software was just announced today and with it came the announcement of its newest and first official DJ controller called the Pioneer DDJ-SX. The new Pioneer DDJ-SX looks to be one of the most professional-grade DJ controllers from Pioneer to-date with a brushed metal chassis and heavy duty appearance. The DDJ-SX will be very tightly integrated with the Serato DJ software and below each jog wheel there are (8) velocity-sensitive performance pads that can be used for Cue-points, Loop Rolls, Slicer, and the SP-6, similar to the way Vestax VCI-380 does it today with Serato ITCH.
