Serato DJ1.7.8 Build 4609
Listening to the preferred songs and playing with the music tracks can be a really fun pastime, especially when a set of appropriate tools are available. Some of them will perform without having to connect any device to the system, while others depend on certain hardware units.
Among the software solutions that fall in the second category you can find Serato DJ, a nice looking program that brings a set of useful features at the fingertips of the music and mixing aficionados.
The one thing that sets it apart from the majority of similar utilities is the fact that it will only work in conjunction with a supported hardware device. Thus, you can make the most of Serato DJ only if you have a mixer, controller or other type of interface and accessory which is compatible with it.
Adding and playing the music files is quite simple and you have at your disposal many controls for loops, cues, markers and more. When you will explore the 'Setup' area you will discover the available special effects that can be activated and used to give a new dimension to the sound.
For those who want to share their mixes or simply keep them onto their PC, Serato DJ comes equipped with a recoding function. Also, another interesting fact about this tool is the support for iTunes library it offers its users.
In case you want to make the mixes even more interesting it is possible to use an expansion pack and add, for example, video to sound in order to make the whole experience a bit more attractive for those who will enjoy the performance.
All in all, Serato DJ promises much and shows to be well prepared for the tasks it should handle. Nonetheless, the limited support for hardware devices makes it rather exclusive and befitted for just a few select users.
