Hi guys extremely excited for this beta version. How do we obtain the download link for version 1.8 beta.
DJ TwoCities 1:45 PM - 14 October, 2015
Had an issue with my laptop using this version... When I tracked it down I found That Serato was ok other than bugs already reported, but it was time for me to do maintenance. The CPU was working and over heated lol. Cleaned fan and heatsink applied homemade thermal compound and it's running cool and flawless. Can't wait for the official release.
Asu 3:08 PM - 14 October, 2015
Very excited about the latest Beta,PNT+Key detection+Key Adjust+Camelot colors is making workflow much more interesting :-)

To get Serato DJ analyzing the keys for you, you need to analyze your songs in Serato DJ an check the box key/analyzing key before you do it!

Thanks so much for the link JoeyM. I went back to the agreement area to see if it had been under my nose the whole time but I still couldn't find it there so now I don't feel so silly. Where was it?
Ronnie 6:37 PM - 15 October, 2015
HEY GUYS,
FYI, I downloaded The Beta Ver 1.80 and tested it.
Sounds pretty clean, but UNFORTUNATELY Still SKIPS so awkwardly.

My advise it to wait patiently, hopefully we'll get through the mess.

Serrate Live is perfectly fine with El Capitan OS.
Ronnie 6:39 PM - 15 October, 2015
Used SL4.

It´s a continuously crash.

"TT57MKII open Mapping" ....cannot use loop dial on TT57MKII for a midi mapped dial inside serato as a secondary FX dial wont go past 50% to 51.3%....and would love to be able to control both the ^ & down loop select slots with one dial ....i.e. turn right to go down list and turn left to go up the list ;)
dj cutsnake 7:11 AM - 18 October, 2015
using PC windows8 downloaded beta last night analized files gave me in key display after 30 mins spinnin the jog wheels (DDJ-SB 2 channel) the waveform froze on both diusplays but stll had full controll manually
olliej82 2:14 PM - 18 October, 2015
Sound stops working after a few minutes with the numark ns7 3, requires a reboot of software and controller. On 2015 MacBook Pro Yosemite

the king is dead, can't do my thing on el capitan os x
turntablist master junry 6:37 AM - 19 October, 2015
after instaling ..i cnnot open..
CatFish 7:06 AM - 19 October, 2015
Mine opened great the first time on windows 7 and then it wouldn't recognise my reloop controller and completely froze the laptop when I tried to shut I down. I still love it though.
Marvin Zurrenda 12:14 PM - 19 October, 2015
OK i DJ a gig just fine with my ddjsz, Windows 7 and Serato 1.8 the only issues i found was.
1 loading from file
2 dragging from file to crates
3 dragging out from serato to desktop
(these 3 froze my laptop &ddjsz and had to shut down serato}
4 slight delay on the cue triggering and platter
other than these 4 issues the remapping blows my mind on the ddjsz you can remap every button and
i remapped the slicer feature in which i don't use to loop triggers and i was having a blast doping loops.
The key feature is awesome damn serato right on point too great job i can wait for this version to come out on late October.
Dj crossfayder 4:32 PM - 19 October, 2015

I need to know what to do to install the new Serato Dj 1.7.8 Beta? Please advice.

This is a beta area link. You'll need to read the threads in the area that the JOIN link above sends you to.

After reading the compulsory threads, you will find a link to download the latest Serato DJ 1.8 beta build.

sam.
pengchen0717 5:31 PM - 21 October, 2015
You can try to re-install the sound card, controller drivers, this may be compatible with OS X EI! After I tried to work my serato1.8beta in OS X EI!I hope to help you!
djkrisp1 7:39 AM - 24 October, 2015
ok so i have noticed something that is a bit annoying but would not effect most ppl, im using both s-9 and ddj-sp1 at the same time because im running Video so it good to use the knobs on the sp1 for effect but when you change the pads on the mixer from hotcue to say sample it also changes on the sp1, never use to do this when i use my 62 with the sp1, im sure its a midi assingment issue and not sure if it can be fixed but would be better if it was, we could then run hot cues on the mixer with beat roll on the sp1 etc.
deejdave 2:32 PM - 24 October, 2015
This is how any device with actual performance pads work. The Rane 62 does not offer performance modes.

Didn't see it on the release notes so probably safe to assume not correct?
