I suspect we’ll see a couple of incremental updates between now and NAMM 2015 in January. But NAMM is traditionally a big even for Serato, usually because a hardware manufacturer wants to unleash their new shiny.

Speaking of which, if you want to see the AMX in action, check out our video from BPM 2014 of DJ Rasp giving the AMX and its AFX sibling and thorough workout.


Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
