Serato DJ 1.7.7. midi out light issue

G-rod 5:18 PM - 11 August, 2015
I use a A&H Xone K2 as a midi controller and it worked fine with all the previous versions, but since I upgraded to 1.7.7 the lights on the controller stopped working.

Tried to re-load the midi mapping, disabled and enabled the lights, even tried to program some new comands an toggling on/off the light and nothing worked.

As anyone noticed the same issue?

Yeah I just wanted to post the same

Output Lighting on my Z2 which worked perfectly with 1.7.6 is not working any more.
Loaded the old version again and it worked again. (only thing not lighting up is the active, saved loop)

would be cool to see a fix there!

I have a Novation Launchpad S and am running 1.7.7 on Windows 10. Although the MIDI is mapped, and the pads on the Launchpad respond, there is no lighting response being displayed.

Having the same issue with my DJM-T1, worked fine until I updated to 1.7.7

Same issue here with the Machine MK2 on 1.7.7. Midi signal works but NO midi lighting.

Do you have a link to the 1.7.6 dmg?

If you go to the downloads page ; you will see on the bottom right hand side the "Serato DJ Downloads Archive" page which houses all prior versions for downloading on your OS :)

Any predictions on when could this be fixed and also the collapsing on itunes directory?

Hey guys,

This release was mainly to address the iTunes issues, we have been working on the MIDI output lighting issue so expect to see a release with that included soon!


G-rod 7:22 AM - 31 August, 2015
any idea when it will be released?

I will let you know as soon as I can G-rod!

Yep, since 1.7.7 Xone K2 does not show any led feedback. 1.7.8 install unfortunately did not solve this. Running windows 7 x64. Cannot seem to find any 'switch' in the .xml file. Is there a switch in the registry?
ShonkaiDJ 2:58 PM - 7 September, 2015
I just double checked and it's right, if I install 1.7.6 the led feedback or Output Lighting function in Serato works fine. My K2 rocks as it should. :-)
ShonkaiDJ 2:59 PM - 7 September, 2015 it should a couple of months ago. No updated rocking for me.

Does anyone using the 1.8 beta know if this issue has been fixed? i went back to 1.7.6 so I could use my Traktor X1 mk2 again.
G-rod 4:55 PM - 17 October, 2015
it's all solved on the new Beta version. even seems to sound better

It's not working for me on 1.8 release. Is it for you guys or just the beta? When I initially make a mapping it works great. When I reopen serato DJ lighting works but then the controller mappings get messed up. If i turn output lighting off the controller functions properly
