Two years after first making waves at the NAMM Show, Phase manufacturer MWM has announced a collaboration with Serato. MWM’s needle-replacing hardware is now an Official Serato Accessory, which means it can now communicate with Serato DJ Pro directly through USB.
The upgrade will enhance the overall performance of Phase with Serato thanks to improved HID protocol. MWM also teased other features that will roll out later, including LED customization and more.

Music technology company MWM shocked the turntablism world when they announced the Phase wireless DJ system last year. However, the product had some hurdles to overcome upon launch.
The highly-anticipated release of the Phase wireless DJ system is just around the corner. But before it ships in September, Phase’s parent company Music World Media recently set off on a global tour to give DJs a chance to see the device in person. The tour features workshops, open sessions, and showcases, and will make stops throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
To highlight what’s happening on Phase’s Live Session – Launch Tour, DJcityTV has partnered with MWM on a new series called Journey to: Phase Live Session. The series is presented by Battle Avenue director and Fresh Press host, Antriks, who will take viewers behind-the-scenes on tour.
The first episode takes place at the 2018 DJ Expo in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Antriks introduces the series then shows a preview of DJ Precision testing out Phase.
