Two weeks ago, Serato announced their new iPad companion App called Serato Remote. With the release of the App also came some updates to the Serato DJ and Serato Scratch Live software suites. Buried within the new Serato Scratch Live updates came the Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus HID-Mode compatibility which allows DJ's to use the two together in perfect harmony.

Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus & SSL

In other words, if you have SSL and a set of Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus players, then all you have to do is update both the device firmware and the DJ software (links in the press release below). The Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus will then link with the Serato Software to display all of the properties in the software on the on-board LCD screen to provide the user with waveforms, cue points, track information and more. The CDJ-2000nexus will also pass the Serato Control Vinyl signal directly to SSL without using the control CD's.

Now that the CDJ-2000nexus works perfectly with both Traktor Pro and SSL in HID mode, it provides everyone with yet another reason to want a set for themselves. Check out the full press release below for more information and be sure to watch our full HD-Video review...
