New Zealand company Onesixone Limited has released a significant software update to its DJ lighting platform, SoundSwitch.
Released in summer 2016, SoundSwitch enables DJs to control DMX lighting fixtures through Serato DJ with custom scripts. Lighting effects are automatically triggered when tracks are played live.
SoundSwitch 1.2 introduces additional attribute controls and an updated fixture library. There are also new drag and drop effects, as well as general stability improvements.
Download the new version here and watch the demo below.
SoundSwitch, a new software and hardware package that provides an interface between Serato DJ and lighting systems, is now available.
SoundSwitch enables DJs to attach lighting cues and effects to audio files, which are automatically triggered when the music is played through Serato DJ.
”DJs can now easily consider the impact lighting can have on their live performance and in turn the experience of their crowd,” SoundSwitch CEO Zak Meyers said in a press release. “We are looking forward to seeing how DJs approach SoundSwitch and what affect [sic] it has in the performance space.”
The hardware and software package can be purchased via SoundSwitch’s website for $499 USD. Those who buy the bundle will gain access to the software immediately, but the hardware won’t arrive until August.
