Introducing Serato DJ Lite

Serato DJ Intro has been replaced by Serato DJ Lite

Serato DJ Lite is available now and free to download and use. Explore what’s new, including a new Practice Mode for DJ’s who want to mix without hardware plugged in, a new-look interface, and much more.

Before getting into the details we'd like to make a few things clear.

  • Serato DJ Lite is free for anyone to download
  • All Serato DJ Intro hardware will automatically work with Serato DJ Lite

Practice Mode

Practice Mode allows you to mix two tracks together without DJ hardware plugged in. Great if you don’t have your controller with you and feel like a jam.

Performance Pad View Mode

Serato DJ Lite has a brand new looking  UI, taking inspiration from Serato DJ Pro. Your Cue Points will now be displayed in a new but very familiar layout. This makes planning and performing your routines more efficient.

Optimized for high-resolution screens

Serato DJ Lite has been optimized for high definition Retina and UHD displays. This means it's super crisp and scalable.
