To further the notion that Native Instruments (Traktor Pro specfically ) will be over taken by Serato in 2015 as the top Digital DJ Software of choice.
This morning Serato DJ is making an appearance in a lot of new pieces of gear at NAMM 2014 like the Mixtrack Pro 3, NS7III, Denon DS1 interface, and of course the updated Rane TTM57MKII. But Serato has been working behind the scenes to bring support for their software to many of the mainstay club mixers and is unveiling support for them on the NAMM convention floor.
It’s called the Serato DJ Club Kit and yes, it’s a new purchasable plug-in for Serato DJ (they’ve been unveiling so many they built a bundle earlier this month). The kit allows DJs to use Serato DJ without a traditional external soundcard or Serato-branded controller with built-in soundcard.
The kit will unlock full support (including DVS) for the following mixers:
Pioneer DJM-900NXS (according to Serato, this is not a phaseout of the DJM-900SRT)
Allen & Heath Xone:DB2
Allen & Heath Xone:DB4
The Serato DJ Club Kit will also unlock Official Serato Accessory support for the Xone:K1 controller.
The Kit will run $169, but no firm date has been specified for when users will be able to snatch this download and unlock club mixers.
