Allen & Heath’s renewed DJ activity saw them in hall 5 with everyone else. And a steady stream of people had a dabble with the new Serato DJ Xone:43C mixer.

MixEmergency 3 from Inklen is here. But it’s not about adding cool new toys, but is about making it better. Optimisation is the key to this release, with the hood being lifted and the code getting a serious tune up. Now more people can run MixEmergency than ever before. Well on Mac anyway.

Jared takes one for an extended spin, and writes a stable amount of opinion.
An incremental update is out for Serato’s entry level DJ Intro software. Version 1.2.4. gets compatibility with Korg’s new KAOSS DJ controller.

Ray recovers from his MP2015 experience to pour out some words about the TTM57mk2.
