Serato is having a sale. The company has dropped the price of its Serato DJ software to US$99 as of today.
Also for a limited period, the company has announced that Serato Video can be bundled with a Serato DJ upgrade – normally US$149 on its own – at a total price of US$149. Serato DJ is the replacement software for Serato ITCH, the company’s previous DJ controller software, and was launched last autumn along with the current flagship Serato DJ controller, the Pioneer DDJ-SX. The upgrade works with the Pioneer DDJ-WeGO, Vestax VCI-400, Denon DJ MC2000, Numark Mixtrack Pro/Pro 2, Pioneer DDJ‑ERGO, Reloop Terminal Mix 2 and Reloop Terminal Mix 4.
Serato DJ is promised as a free upgrade to all ITCH users, and along these lines the company also recently announced its availability for the Numark NS6 ITCH controller. We saw it working with the Vestax VCI-380 at the Musikmesse show, so expect this model to be officially supported imminently too.
