Now Available: Serato DJ 1.7.3

Serato DJ 1.7.3 is a minor update that adds official support for the new Pioneer XDJ-1000 in HID mode when used in conjunction with supported Serato DJ hardware. 

Update to Serato DJ 1.7.3.

The Pioneer XDJ-1000 is the first in a new line-up of digitally focussed USB and Serato DJ (HID) ready players. It's the first Serato DJ Accessory to feature a touch screen with a familiar club layout and a host of pro DJ performance features.

The Pioneer XDJ-1000 is pre-mapped to Serato DJ when using HID mode, allowing you to use the XDJ-1000 to control many of Serato DJ’s features such as, Library Navigation, Looping, Slip Mode, Cue Points, Quantize, Sync and much more.

For more information about the Pioneer XDJ-1000 and use with Serato DJ 1.7.3, check out the Pioneer XDJ-1000 Quickstart guide.

As long as you need 3 USB port for connecting, the HID mode is worthless. I use a non powered USB hub to connect the players AND Serato interface to my Mac. So I have one free USB port for my external hard drive. That works fine in Serato Scratch life. But it works NOT in Serato DJ! As long this is not fixed, I keep using Scratch life!

Are you saying that it's not working with any of your players or only with the XDJ-1000??

You should try to plug your Serato interface directly to your Mac. then connect the players and the hard drive on your non-powered USB hub.

Should be working fine.

yeah i think that's his problem...but that means he needs a powered USB drive in order to use a non powered usb HDD...it needs power from usb
Asu 12:50 PM - 15 January, 2015

Yea I think that's right. but the HID should be working anyway if you have your interface plugged on your Mac and your players plugged on your Hub.

Anyway, can't wait to try this XDJ-1000 in HID tonight.

So I still need a Rane box to use Serato DJ in HID mode, even with XDJ?

I don't understand why I can't just use the CDJ's/XDJ's soundcard directly with Serato DJ. It's a commercial block that costs $ 500.

Yes you still need it.

Why couldn't they make these players "daisy chained" like the re loop rp8000s..... So that you would only have to take up one USB port.....

*sigh*

It's not like these players have a boatload of onboard features.... There aren't even any cue points to control so you would still need to connect divers if you wanna do some cue point drumming....

You have the Cue points on the touchscreen tho, but you probably right that the dicers would be probably more effective for cue point drumming ;) But at least you have it.

I don't have a Mac, so I don't have those USB related problems.

My Windows based Laptop haves 4 3.0 USB, and it's all I need
Daniel Ventura 9:24 AM - 16 January, 2015
still useless as Long one can't use the internal soundcards of the xdj/cdj.
docmotion2000 11:58 AM - 16 January, 2015
come on here is nothing useless its the same with a cdj2000nxs hid control, there is still no license for serato dj

Thx to Serato for implement the player it works great with the ddj sx

i find a little bug > the time control in the display doesn't work
ulyssesv 12:52 PM - 16 January, 2015
Yes, I also own a DDJ-SX. But I don't want to spend another $500 on a box that will be sitting here idle at home.

If it was a hardware issue I'd gladly pay for it, but it's just a contractual restriction between Serato, Rane and Pioneer.

you can with traktor...or just use usb sticks and skip the whole serato thing so you can use those internal sound cards.

it is what it is...more XDJ players are coming out at NAMM
Asu 1:25 AM - 21 January, 2015

I just got the XDj-1000's and looking to use them via HID mode. I am using a Rane Sixty-four with them. I am also using a powered USB hub. What steps do I take to use it with serato DJ?

- I plugged both USB's from XDJ's to hub
- Hub into laptop
- do I press USB on XDJ?

Thanks

Not exactly sure about what you re meaning but if you want to use your CDJs and your mixer without serato you will not need a Serato sound card no.

What do you mean by "connected with USB" ???

Can you use the Link port to daisy-chain two XDJ-1000s and then just plug one into your computer's USB port? Or do they both need to be plugged in via USB for HID mode?

Not 100% sure but I think they both need to be plugged in via USB.

Straight from Mac to CDJs,using the USB Hub.

You will need the SL3 box to use your Serato tho,Depending on the mixer you are using !!

I just bought a set of XDJs to use with my Rane 62 mixer. Replacing turntables (not entirely) I've been a DJ and an audio engineer for most of my life, but I'm a bit boggled by this setup.

Why does the XDJ not link players via CAT5 so that I only have to use one USB port to link them to my comp? Is it possible that this will be a firmware upgrade in the near future? Or should I still buy a USB hub for now? Seems inefficient.

Also, if I decide I don't want to use them in HID mode (am I even using that correctly?), and I just want to use my XDJs as standalone players, is my only option to have the Serato control tone on a flash drive and plug that in when in use? Or is there a way to upload the tone to the player?

Thanks in advance.

Hello! I've just purchased a pair of pioneer XDJ 1000's and literally cannot figure out why when using in HID mode and I press link, the xdjs will not connect......... I've tried to exit Serato over and over and got them connect one time then tried again and wouldn't connect. (Tried this all day)
-I'm using a Rane 62 mixer
-Mac iOS 10
-I'm one update behind on Serato.
I have a non powered hub that I connect to straight to my computer. Please help!
lvmez 10:18 PM - 3 October, 2016
I had that same set up except with a 64. I used a powered hub when at the time. Are your XDJ's updated to newest firmware?
DominicOwen 5:21 AM - 17 October, 2016
Okay so I've solved the hid problem..
But now I'm having another problem, when playing at a gig the song will randomly jump! And when it jumps it scrolls all the way down to the last song. Very weird.. need help
Discogeek 2:22 AM - 16 November, 2016
get the XDJ 1000 firmware update 1.10 that Pioneer just released.
So far it seems to have fixed the random skipping and jumping.
Only tested for 4 hours... but ran solid.

I have a Rane SL2 box a Denon DN-X600 Mixer XDJ 1000MK2 running on a Mac system 10.7 I have 3 usb ports on this model Mac one for SL2 and One for the XDJ 1000 my hard drive I use a firewire direct. When I link the player to PC it says it just stays blinking in that mode nothing else. I go to SetUp in Serato go to audio section and I see the XDJ 1000 player listed But No Action. Please Help....
