Serato‘s continued push into supporting the mobile and club DJ industry continues via its launch of the latest edition of Serato DJ Pro 2.3.3. With this update, Serato can officially integrate with Pioneer DJ‘s four-month-old all-in-one DJ system: the XDJ-XZ. The DJ software’s colored waveforms now appear on Pioneer’s seven-inch screen and CDJ-sized jog wheel displays. Furthermore, Serato DJ Pro support for the XDJ-XZ allows for four-deck mixing capabilities and other Serato specific software features to be enabled.

Serato Chief Strategy Officer Nick Maclaren says, “It’s super exciting to deliver official Serato support for the XDJ-XZ. This powerhouse has already proven to be immensely popular – the versatility of this all-in-one system means it could take center stage at house parties, mobile gigs, and professional club setups. We’re really looking forward to seeing what DJs can do with the XDJ-XZ when used with Serato DJ Pro.”

Pioneer DJ has released a new all-in-one controller, the XDJ-XZ.

The device, which can be used with USB drives or a rekordbox-equipped laptop, “feels exactly like you’re using the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2,” according to the press release. Serato DJ Pro support will be added in early 2020.

“It is the closest thing you can get to a full two deck [Pioneer DJ] NXS2 setup at around a third of the price,” DJcityTV’s Mojaxx says.

The XDJ-XZ is available now at $2,299. Watch Mo’s first look below and stay tuned for a full review.
