The Serato Control CD is available in 2 file formats:
ZIP file format
This file requires an unzip utility to open and contains Serato Control CD.wav. Please unzip the package to show the .wav file.
Serato Control CD.wav is a stereo 44.1KHz wave file that you can drop into any CD burning application, or run directly off a removable storage device such as a USB key or removable hard drive.
When using a USB stick, connect the USB stick with the Serato Control CD.wav to your digital player and select "USB" as the control connection mode.
When burning the .wav file to a CD do not adjust the audio levels, make sure any audio auto-levelling is turned off, don't down-sample the audio or use a different audio format.
Altering the source audio file in any way will result in the control signal not functioning correctly.
