Numark Users: Serato DJ 1.5 was introduced primarily to deliver DVS support, however Numark has determined that Serato DJ 1.3 offers superior stability when used with Numark controllers, including NS7, NS7II and NS6, and since the additional features of 1.5 do not dramatically impact Numark users, Serato and Numark strongly recommend that for optimum performance, Numark users download and use Serato DJ 1.3 until further notice.
Serato DJ 1.5 comes packed with support for a number of brand new and existing devices, including the Rane Sixty-Four and Pioneer DJM-900SRT. These are the first professional, four-channel club standard mixers that are specifically designed for plug-and-play integration with Serato DJ, using our world class NoiseMap DVS technology.
Serato DJ 1.5 also includes support for the Pioneer DDJ-SR and Numark NS7II controllers, plus, accessory support for the Pioneer DDJ-SP1, Novation Dicers and the Pioneer CDJ-2000 & CDJ-2000nexus - to be used in conjunction with a supported Serato DJ device.
Firmware and Drivers: To ensure your controller is ready to use with Serato DJ, the latest available drivers AND firmware updates, are available on the Serato DJ support page.
