The features that I would like to see availeble from Serato DJ are as follows:

I would like to see them introduce three new levels of SDJ.

1) A basic level. The basic level would be stripped of all of the fluff meaning leave the barebones such as crates, columns, loops, cues etc but take out stuff such as keys track warning beat jumps flip color key display color waveforms and all of the added functions that cause heavy CPU usage.

2)a medium version.

3) the regular full version.

the reason I feel that those options are important, are because they are many DJ's that simply want to blend music, and they hardly ever use any effects or much of the fancy added functions offered in SDJ. Those are usually the DJ's that have huge music libraries, and thus have heavy CPU usage on their systems when searching for songs in Serato DJ. The added bloatware just boggs down their system and causes even a system with high spects to act very slugish.

The next feature that i would like to see incorporated into Serato DJ Pro is:

A second search engine that connects to the internet.

Basically i want to have the ability to have the user connect a browser of thier choice (google chrome/Safari/Microsoft edge)

For the purpose of searching for mp3’s from the internet, the ability to download music on the fly from within Serato, and play the trach without having to leave the serato dj pro gui/platform.

Many would ask why? or why not just use your browser?

But the answer is to keep the user inside the Serato software experience throughout the users entire set.

Or have the ability to search for mp3’s on the internet from within Serato other than using white label (no offence, but most dj’s that i am aware of do not usethe white lable thing)

Just give Serato DJ Pro the ability to search, find and download music.

This does not infridge on copyright because links are provided by the user not Serato.

I would like to be able to have an option to use the headphones when using Serato Dj Pro in practice mode without a controller. This option would truly be beneficial when at home just going through new music.
Dj Cellz 1 10:50 AM - 7 March, 2018
I would like to be able to use the headphones to cue up the next song to be played without a controller in practice mode. With the use of an dual sound cards.

Another suggestion is : when we work in autoplay mode we need an option that is called track end silence remove!becouse when we use serato in playlist mode with autoplay option enabled this option is very needet!
Nedded also,the +10 and wide pitch option!!

Hi,
I recently updated my previous version of Serato Dj to Serato Dj Pro, was wondering if there is any update on crate and folders option.

The previous versions never use to auto update newly added or removed tracks.

Example:
I have all my tracks in different folders and i usually dragg & drop these folders into serato dj and analize them.

When i add tracks or remove tracks from these folders they do not update automatically on serato dj.

Looking forward to have this in the future updated versions.

I never noticed it before SDJ Pro, but now - on the Setup screen - it says "Crates will be updated next time Serato is restarted" or something similar... kind of makes the 'Live updating' tick-box a bit pointless!!!

No help if you are playing background music...

File editing - e.g. with Audacity - is hugely labour intensive.
What Serato needs is an 'auto-fade/automix' option, so that when the playing track drops below a preset volume level the next track is brought in.

Never gonna happen.

Serato is tied to soundcard hardware and you only get PFL if you are using approved soundcard.

Serato has to make money somehow and they are not gonna just let people DJ for free on it on any soundcard hardware. It isn't their business model.

hey people...i was talking when we play bacground music not when the dj is playing!! in playlist with autoplay enabled needed this option to remove track end silence!! or automix option! to many dj software have this option! i know very well that this option dont needed when the dj is playing! we use serato for diffrent events and so we like to have diffrent options in serato,this was my idea!!

You're not listening...

For mobile DJ's, who are often asked to play background music or when working alone (most of the time!) need a 'comfort break', 'gapless' auto-play (or whatever you want to call it) is a must! iTunes can be 'Set' to do it, so it should be possible!
eli dee jay 8:50 PM - 18 July, 2018
Why not in serato this option? Is so hard 😂 it was just an answer,i know what the dj do but this option is for playlist mode not when the dj is mixing

You can have a couple of premixed pieces in you library in a crate called "nature is calling" and you just drop them in, when you feel like a break. I have that around for different bpm ranges. So it does not matter if you are in warm up or later that night you always have some long stuff to bring in.

1. Spotify Integration. There's a bigass thread on these forums about this. djay pro does it.

2. Hardware-less integration with CDJs. Why am I going to buy/lug around other Serato-enabled hardware just for the ability to use it with CDJs. djay pro does it. Come on.

3. Ability to use 3rd party VST / AU plugins. Per-channel effects and on the entire mix (could be useful for lighting software that looks at the audio). Not 100% necessary, but could be cool. djay does it. Some of us have large plugin libraries with awesome reverbs etc, and might want to do our own custom effects.

4. 'Fine' key shift control. I'm talking about a separate control from the speed with keylock off, not just whole tones. Traktor does it.

5. Track Play Count. There's a big thread on the forums about this. Colour changes for tracks already played in the current set. Too many times trying to search the history tab to see if I played something already, or having o drag the history to a new crate just to be able to search. (At least allow us to search our play history).

6. Day mode. Huge thread on this.

Totally with you Nostalgia. It would be useful to have - the current autoplay function leaves us wanting. Big respect for AKIEM who apparently has a bladder of steel.

Having said that, Nostalgia, easy fix for you - if you have an iPad (or hell, an iPhone) download Serato Pyro, or Djay Pro for iPad. Connect the iPad to an input on your mixer and you can play from there whilst you need to have a break. Really good for random requests too.

What do you mean in #2? "hardwareless" Which hardware do you want to do without?

If you have the paid version of Serato, you can use with Pioneer DJM mixer and CDJ-2000NXS and all you need is USB cables (and maybe a USB hub).

I'd like adjustable EQ turnover frequencies. For example, in the typical 3 band EQ controller, if the low to mid EQ turnover frequency could be set lower to 100hz, you can start to apply a lot more low frequency boost without it becoming boomy, or screwing up the mid range - assuming you have subs that can handle it.

Bladder size tends to follow body size so a male and female of


Males have better, larger, and stronger urethra. Sphincters for stopping urine flow (this is known from anatomy and from measurements of urethral squeezing pressure). Therefore, on average males can hold their urine to higher pressures and therefore to higher volumes than females (this means more urine and longer holding times). As to room in the lower abdominal cavity, males have more room down there as they do not have a uterus laying right on top of their bladder like females do.

If you're on Windows, you can use mp3DirectCut to trim your files -
mpesch3.de1.cc

It has a Batch option to remove audio below a user settable db level, and trims the mp3 file directly - there is no loss of fidelity.

Serato partnership with rane and ableton gave us the bridge

Inmusic brand owns akai which means they have some sort of partnership with ableton because they make controllers for ableton.
In music also now owns rane which means some how they might own part of the bridge copy rights from rane.
Serato has a partnership with inmusic

So basically since inmusic brand has some sort of partnership to make hardware or controllers from both companies serato and ableton
I don’t see what’s holding up serato from pitching the idea of bringing back the bridge 2.0

Let inmusic brand make a bridge controller/ mpc with a sound card for ableton. Basically when connected the serato samplers/ decks are rewired into ableton
