Seems that Serato is inviting more companies to eat at their table, and Gemini has been invited to bring their own particular cost effective brand into the fold. The Slate 4 controller is a fully featured offering coming with Serato DJ Intro, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t fully featured. 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.
The second big announcement from Rane was one that people had hoped for. The original 57SL mixer became a casualty of Serato DJ, so it’s great news that Rane has reworked it in line with newer advents in Serato technology. Ray recovers from his MP2015 experience to pour out some words about the TTM57mk2.
Serato has announced the Serato DJ Club kit software bundle (DJ and DVS), but more importantly unlocked some Pioneer and Allen & Heath mixers for DVS too.
In another did-not-see-this-coming moment, Denon DJ has got in on the Serato DVS game with the Denon DJ DS1 Serato DJ Interface. It’s small and cheap too.
The demise of the Rane TTM57SL didn’t go down well with users. But now, Rane are aiming to make the world right again. The TTM57MKII is here.
Instead of buying a new controller every time Serato decides to add a little extra software magic, the concept of secondary controllers came about. These tame the finer points of new features, and the new Reloop Neon aims to make sense of the expanding pad functions including the new Serato Flip. Jared Helfer does the reviewing honours.
Serato Remote gives control of Serato DJ to iPads. Version 1.2 just hit the app store, and brings more features to put the power on the touch screen.
Ready for the bargain bear pit? Black Friday is here, and so are the bargains. Thankfully you don’t need to riot in shops — these are online.
The Reloop Neon controller packs a lot into a single small Serato DJ driven controller. And in this video, JFB beats a pair of them into submission.
