After nearly three weeks of public testing, Serato has released the official version of Serato DJ 1.9.5. The highly anticipated update adds support for Pioneer DJ’s CDJ-2000NXS2 player and DJM-900NXS2 mixer.
Matt Cleland, Serato’s Product Planner, said in the press release:
“This update is huge for working club DJs as it provides support for two pieces of kit that many DJs will encounter on a nightly basis. With the Serato DJ Club Kit license, DJs can now connect directly to the Pioneer DJ DJM-900NXS2 mixer without the need for a separate interface. Two USB connections on this mixer also means changeover is easier than ever. As well as this, the CDJ-2000NXS2 will also control Serato DJ in HID mode via USB connection.”
Also included are a number of minor changes and stability improvements, including memory optimizations for better performance.
