Serato has teased two of its most requested features, namely a play count and “day mode”, as “coming soon” over on a Story on its Instagram account.

Play count tells you how many times you’ve played a track, and is a much-loved feature in iTunes. It’ll be especially useful if it gets incorporated as a question in Smart Crates, as you can have a crate of your most and least played tracks.

This would be useful for honing in on a floor filler / floor saver quickly, or alternatively getting around to listening to and DJing with the tunes that have been knocking around unloved in your library for too long.

Meanwhile, a “day mode” – a brighter theme so you can see what you’re doing when DJing in sunshine (think festival sets in supporting slots, beach bars, barbecues and so on) – was inexplicably removed from the software when it transitioned to Serato DJ from Serato ITCH many years back – well now it appears to be coming back.

No dates yet for Serato DJ’s play mode or day count, but hey, it was on Instagram, so it must be true…
