Two New Mixers & A New Add-On Controller For Serato DJ

This October, we are releasing Serato DJ 1.5 and supporting some brand new hardware from Pioneer and Rane. Two mixers (Pioneer DJM-900SRT / Rane Sixty-Four) with Serato Control Vinyl / CD support (DVS) are being integrated as well as a new sub-controller (Pioneer DDJ-SP1) - a really powerful little device. Read more about these new pieces of kit below. If you have any questions, hit us up in the comments!

Rane Sixty-Four for Serato DJ

Available this October, the Rane Sixty-Four will be the first Rane mixer to support Serato DJ and Serato NoiseMap™ Vinyl/CD control outside of Scratch Live. A four channel, professional club mixer, one of the crowning features it shares with it’s closest relative, the Rane Sixty-Two, is dual USB ports for effortless DJ changeover and back to back sets at the flick of a switch. It’s completely plug-and-play out of the box and built to Rane’s very high standards of quality and performance. 

There are controls to slam your cues, engage your Auto-Loops and also trigger Loop Rolls. Two features that will be new to the Scratch Live users moving up to Serato DJ are Sync and Slip mode, both of these new tricks can be controlled on board this powerful mixer. The SP-6 Sample Player can also be controlled using the hardware controls on the Sixty-Four and with Sync, becomes even more powerful.

As well as the natively mapped controls, there are two custom MIDI layers you can access to set up the mixer how you like or map Serato DJ controls that aren’t already available.

Powerful hardware FX (Filter, Flanger, Phaser, Echo, Robot, Reverb), that Sixty-Two owners will be familiar with, individual channel filters and a USB insert to take advantage of the Serato DJ, iZotope software FX, post fader. This is a powerful feature, allowing you to use new FX such as Tape Echo and Epic Reverb, and maintain the tail of the audio when the fader is brought down, just like the hardware FX. There’s also a Flex FX send for any hardware FX pedals or units you might want to connect.

Serato Video users will be happy to know that the Sixty-Four is pre-mapped. The faders and EQs are all natively linked.

In terms of the hardware, the Sixty-Four has a high quality, 32bit floating point, 48kHz sound card for excellent sound output quality and crispy recording. Low latency Core Audio/ASIO drivers are also provided for use with any third party audio applications you might use.

Pioneer DJM-900SRT for Serato DJ

Pioneer’s very first mixer to support Serato NoiseMap™ Vinyl/CD control in Serato DJ, the DJM-900SRT is an exciting piece of hardware! Completely integrated with Serato DJ, the connection is extremely simple and accessible via USB on top of the mixer as well as a USB connection and USB input indicator to easily know what’s going on.

Most of the features DJs know and love from the Pioneer DJM series mixers have been brought across. Colour FX for each channel and the signature Pioneer Beat FX with X-Pad control, that can now be synced to the tempo of your tracks in Serato DJ.

A four channel mixer, you can mix with four decks in Serato DJ with Fader Start and 3 band EQ on each channel that’s switchable between +6dB to -26dB and +6dB to -∞dB. 

MIDI mappable, so you can map Serato DJ functions to your hardware.

The Pioneer DJM-900SRT comes with very high quality input/output circuits. A 32bit A/D converter and DSP that suppresses digital noise as well as balanced hybrid operation amps and output circuits to reduce analogue noise.

Pioneer DDJ-SP1 add-on controller for Serato DJ

A completely new add-on controller, the Pioneer DDJ-SP1 is a powerful and portable companion to your primary Serato DJ setup.

For current Serato DJ users with simple controllers lacking in hardware controls, and new users looking to move to Serato DJ with either one of the two new mixers or a current Rane Scratch Live device (when supported), this controller gives you access to so much more.

Natively mapped to control all the exciting performance features of Serato DJ such as Hot Cues, Loop Roll, Slicer, SP-6 Sample Player, Auto-Loop, Manual-Loop, Velocity Mode for the SP-6, Slip Mode, Sync and also Hot Loop - a brand new performance feature, exclusive to the DDJ-SP1.

Hot Loop triggers an Auto-Loop when you hit one of your 8 cue points. A great feature to creatively jump around in your track.

There are also perfectly matched controls for the Serato DJ FX, powered by iZotope. Select, load and control your FX in both Single FX and Multi FX mode. 

Each FX unit can be switched to be dedicated Serato Video FX controls as well!
