Pro Tip: Echo Out is here!

The Echo Out effect is back and available in Serato DJ 1.7.2 Public Beta, which is due for official release in December. 

To use it, you'll need to activate the Wolf Pack FX Expansion Pack, which is FREE!

Activation

 - Click on the My Serato button in the bottom right hand corner

 - Click on the Expansion Packs & Activations button

 - Login with your Serato online account details

 - Under the My Products tab, locate the Wolf Pack FX tile and select Activate 

You can use Echo Out in Multi-FX mode either by itself or at the end of a chain of FX, giving you more options. Try adding Echo Out in one of the three FX slots and add in a Space Verb and Flanger to spice up and create your own unique custom FX chain. Let us know what you like to use!

Don't forget, you can also add Echo Out to your Favorite FX list, which you can alter in the Setup Screen under the FX tab.

do I need to have version 1.7.2 (beta) to activate echo out effect ?.... i got the wolf pack fx activated but i do not see the echo out effect.

It still distorts rather than just echo the sound naturally.

Any way you can fix this for 1.7.2 release?

That's correct.

The article said it would be part of the public release for 1.7.2, which is due out in December.

Drewbdo,

"The Echo Out effect is back and available in Serato DJ 1.7.2 Public Beta, which is due for official release in December"

We are referring to the full release, which is in beta currently,

You can try the beta (and echo out) now, here - serato.com

Matt P,

Sorry. I was commenting to Toston & Crump that probably the full release would sound better than the beta version.

I'm looking forward to it coming out! :)

Dj Owe 12:15 AM - 30 November, 2014
roll out also please for final release
my life would be finally complete in the serato and technology world

Can we get some post fader echo PLEASE!! Can be accomplished by routing the EFX output through the master volume instead of each channel (or through both channels like the SP6 does).

Offline activation required. I don't have networking on my laptop, without a full format.

So if it's 'free', and since it only works WITH HARDWARE, can you please provide an offline installer.

OR bundle it with the installer, instead of 'activating'.

Or, provide a phone or email based OFFLINE activation (AS ANY OTHER SOFTWARE WITH ACTIVATION DOES).

I don't have internet on my laptop BECAUSE you told me to optimise it by removing it, many years ago. I took it upon myself for a more SEVERE optimisation - environment variable added to Windows 7 'devmgr show non present devices = 1', then in device manager 'show hidden and ghosted devices', in the hidden area, disable/deleted HTML driver. So it would be great if since you make such a deal about 'disabling networking', you could make some of the features in my software WORK WITHOUT NETWORKING?!!

How do I activate on my desktop, then move to my laptop. Copy/paste Serato directory?

Hey ninjagaijin,

I'd get in touch with support for help with that. We don't recommend you completely remove internet capability from your computer, it's just not recommended to have it enabled while DJing.

You can contact support here: support.serato.com

Please get in touch with them so they can help you out.

Sam.

Need echo out to have an adjustable time OR set to one bar. Right now it speeds up a bit and throws off mixes.
Dj Wunder 7:33 AM - 13 December, 2014
So is this supposed to be equivalent to the "Roll Out" effect in SSL? It doesn't sound anything like it...

How is this different from the other Echo Fade and ComboFadeEcho FX?

I agree and it doesn't hold a steady echo, it speeds up and throws the mix off.
eric rosario 9:30 PM - 2 November, 2015
can it be used with TTM57sl..I use to have it until I downloaded the new version 2.5.0
DJ Tecniq 5:24 AM - 7 March, 2017
It's 2017 and echo out still hasn't been fixed in SDJ...😕
DJ.Productions 12:20 PM - 19 May, 2017
DJ Tecniq, I agree with you. I don't understand how Serato can't have a simple FX like echo sound right.
I used to have a cheap ass mixer with echo and it sounded great and that was like 20 yrs ago
