The news today of Serato DJ having DVS finally integrated into it has big repercussions for users of the company’s software, most of all of course for Serato Scratch Live users, who will obviously now be wanting to know where this shift of emphasis leaves them. No doubt pre-guessing the number of concerned existing Serato Scratch Live users who are going to want quick answers, Serato’s CEO Sam Gribben has recorded a video message explaining today’s news, which you can see here.

The bottom line is that no users will be left in the cold, nearly all hardware will still be supported, and the public beta will iron out any issues as the company migrates everyone across – but of course, you’ll still be best advised to get used to the new platform eventually, as from 2015 onwards it’ll be receiving reduced support and no upgrades.

What do you think of what Sam has to say? Are you a Serato DJ user excited at these developments? If you’re a Serato Scratch Live user, is this something you were expecting? Please share your thoughts and feelings in the comments.
