Goodbye Serato Scratch Live. Serato DJ With DVS is Here.


Just announced on Sept 4th, the merging of Serato’s DJ softwares has begun – bringing DVS support to Serato DJ with the launch of a new version of the program, 1.5. The announcement comes in tandem with three new pieces of gear: the Rane Sixty-Four mixer, a Pioneer DJM-900 SRT Serato DJ Edition, and the Pioneer DDJ-SP1 controller.

As many industry experts predicted, developing three different programs (Scratch Live, DJ, DJ Intro) would serve only to frustrate and bog down Serato’s development cycle – and that a unification between them would be inevitable. Today we get to see the complete plan:

October 2013: 1.5 Release – Vinyl and CDJ control added to Serato DJ for the new mixers
December 2013: 1.6 Beta – Beta DVS support for Sixty-Eight, Sixty-Two, Sixty-One, SL2, SL3, SL4
February 2014: 1.6 Release – Full DVS support for above mixers + soundcards
Serato is bringing their trademarked NoiseMap DVS technology from Scratch Live into Serato DJ, meaning that you’re not going to need new timecode CDs/vinyl, and that it will continue to be the same reliable engine that DVS users have grown highly accustomed to performing under pressure.

End Of The Line: Of note, the Rane SL1 and Rane 57SL will not be receiving DVS support – apparently the technology in the soundcards in each is too limiting to be supported in Serato DJ.

Free Download: We Are Your Friends (Club Killers Trap Remix)

We’re letting this track fly!!! Zac Efron is going to love it. If you’re a CK fam member on the site, you’ve probably had this remix for over a month now when we first shared it to our exclusive friends. But just in case you missed or you’re not a CK member we decided to post on our new Soundcloud outlet “Club Killers Freebies” for the masses.

We understand that 128 BPM is a lifestyle but this track is 70 BPM (or 140 BPM depending on how you like to tag your files) don’t judge us too much. LOL. Enjoy the remix friends.

Pioneer DJ DJM-S9 Official Introduction

DJ Jazzy Jeff says it’s “probably the best mixer I’ve ever seen”.

Pioneer DJ has announced details of its next mixer, the two-channel DJM-S9 mixer for Serato DJ.

The DJM-S9 is designed with scratch DJs in mind, taking inspiration from Pioneer’s DJM-909 battle mixer. As well as what Pioneer DJ claims is a fast and accurate crossfader, the mixer also comes with performance pads and FX buttons that can be mapped to your preferred functions, offering easy access to functions like roll, slicer and loop.

The mixer has also been designed with practicality in mind, featuring two soundcards for seamless transitions between DJs, or so you can easily play back-to-back. If the standard version isn’t quite flashy enought for you, Pioneer DJ is offering a limited edition gold model, along with matching versions of its PLX-1000 turntables.

You can watch the mixer in action in the video below, where it gets a glowing endorsement from DJ Jazzy Jeff, who says it’s “probably the best mixer he’s ever seen”. It’s released in November, but doesn’t come cheap – it’s rumored to cost $2073.83
