Bug Fixes

Serato DJ 1.7.2 also includes a large amount of maintenance and a huge number of bug fixes, continuing the unparalleled level of stability and performance that Serato software is renowned for.
Some examples of the bug fixes are: 

  • We’ve implemented a workaround for an issue that users reported with DVS hardware on Mac OS X. This issue would firstly cause an audible dropout, then the control vinyl or CDs would respond slowly when controlling the software. The workaround means that the vinyl or CD latency does not occur.
  • Short audible dropouts on mac not resolved by USB buffer.
  • Crash when connecting to firewire soundcards.
