Public Beta: Serato DJ 1.7.4

Please join the Serato DJ 1.7.4 Public Beta group to download the latest beta update.

With Serato DJ 1.7.4, we've introduced support for the Pioneer DJM-900NXS, DJM-850, Allen & Heath Xone:DB2 and DB4 mixers with the purchase of a "Club Kit" license. The Club Kit license is a bundle of the Serato DJ and DVS Expansion Pack licenses.

If you already own both of these licenses then you will be able to connect to Club Kit hardware and use DVS. If you only own a Serato DJ license, you will still be able to connect to Club Kit hardware and use CDJs in HID mode, or MIDI map features for use with Internal mode.

If you don't own these licenses but wish to test Club Kit hardware, you can either start a free 14 day Serato DJ trial, or purchase the Club Kit for $169 in the online window. More information about Club Kit here.
