Worst of all that happens to me when at version 1.9.2 with the previous version in order. For larger events using Numark NV and at smaller party using Pioneer DDJ Ergo. Thank you for your support and help.

I had issues using HID mode with 1.9.2 and SL4
You're able to join the beta area now but builds will be uploaded shortly and aren't available just yet. Keep an eye out for these soon :)
Can you please release a SDJ version without adding any new "things" and really focusing on bugs an stability ?
Please. Please. Please. Please. Please.
The last update was specifically focussed on this, and this update + every other update we do has a focus on stability and performance.
Let us know what you're having issues with and we'll help you out.
I have one computer with windows 7 and an other with windows 10, but non of them are compatible with serato. Can it be possible? Is there any thing I can do?
If you're looking for tech support, please visit this page: support.serato.com and open a new ticket - we can help you out :)
If you have specific feedback about the beta, please post in the beta area so our developers look into this.
I was instaled the Beta version, and was the same problem as a 1.9.2 version. the sound System Crash. Please work on this problem and in this updad. Its necessary. One suggest: If it possible try to "divide" the SP6 function for the decks. Like use one particular samples in the decks 1, and in the decks 2 others.
I think it´s more funny and criative all users. Its like to have 16 pads to use. :)
"Mapped across all supported hardware."
You ultimately are responsible for making the next version the best it can be.
Beta phase generally begins when the software is feature complete but likely to contain a number of known or unknown bugs. Software in the beta phase will generally have many more bugs in it than completed software, as well as speed/performance issues and may still cause crashes or data loss. The focus of beta testing is reducing impacts to users, often incorporating usability testing. The process of delivering a beta version to the users is called beta release and this is typically the first time that the software is available outside of the organization that developed it. Beta version software is often useful for demonstrations and previews within an organization and to prospective customers. Some developers refer to this stage as a preview, preview release, prototype, technical preview / technology preview (TP), or early access. Some software is kept in perpetual beta, where new features and functionality are continually added to the software without establishing a firm "final" release.
Beta testers are people who actively report issues of beta software. They are usually customers or representatives of prospective customers of the organization that develops the software. Beta testers tend to volunteer their services free of charge but often receive versions of the product they test, discounts on the release version, or other incentives.
I'd get in touch with support about this - support.serato.com
I'm writing regarding the Serato UI design;
the single biggest blockage I have using Serato is the lacking intuitiveness of screening and accessing my music. Coming from records I always made a strong connection to cover artwork to navigate my music.
None of the current DJ softwares offers an advanced visually satisfying solution. Serato could benefit hugely from coming up with a new advanced visual approach.
I feel there is too much focus on trying to innovate software features while the core functions and design of Serato leaves a lot to be desired. Some suggestions:
- implement conservative design overhaul, the software
UI looks very dated and chunky.
- improve look sexiness and use of screen real estate
- pioneer’s rekordbox is a good example for a modern design
- give option to show track cover art like rekordbox does it (top quater of the sleeve square only, scaled in line with text)
- introduce scale slider for track artwork display to scale between showing quater or full frame of artwork.
(there is one for text size already).
- introduce iTunes cover-view style library browsing.
- vertically aligned depth stacking like OSX’s time machine would be great.
- there could be 1-4 depth stacked channels next to each other
Can’t wait for the v2.0 - hope to see some of the above in there ;)
I have tested it on my homestudio speakers and a bunch of range of headphones (even lot of poor price headphones) and there is a difference, really appreciated that specially poor headphones car hear.
With the autogain on, the basses sound so much more sexy.
I can now stop mixing with my vestax mixers and appreciate mixing with serato.
Thanks guys, can't wait the final version ;)
I assume there was at least an in house Alpha test of 1.9.2. I know there was a "Private" Beta test of 1.9.2, followed by a "Public" Beta test of 1.9.2. Then there was an "Official" Release of 1.9.2, quickly followed by an "unofficial update" to the "Official" release. Now, an incredibly short time later, the process is repeating itself with 1.9.3, and yet the problems continue.
Have you considered that perhaps this whole process needs to be rethought?
I found it by clicking "Latest" tab at top then found it hidden two spots down.
