Key new features of Serato DJ 1.5.2
Serato DJ FX Expansion Pack - Chip Pack
Chip Pack, a new FX Expansion Pack powered by iZotope is available to purchase for USD19.
Expansion Packs can be purchased / activated in-app within the Serato DJ ‘Online’ window, or from the Serato Online Store. Each new FX Expansion Pack comes with several base FX for use in Single FX Mode, plus, a large number of base FX variations for use in Multi FX Mode. See the full list of Serato DJ FX available, and watch Tom from the Serato Development Team demo the new Chip Pack FX.
Scrollable FX Drop-down Menu
New to Serato DJ 1.5.2 is Scrollable FX Drop-down Menus in both single and multi FX mode. We have optimized the FX drop-down menus. Shortening them and adding scroll allows for a larger FX list and stops the list obscuring the library.
Support for Vestax VCI-100 mk II, Numark MixDeck Quad & Pioneer DDJ-SB
Serato DJ 1.5.2 now supports the Vestax VCI-100 MKII, Numark Mixdeck Quad and Pioneer DDJ-SB Serato DJ Intro controllers as a paid upgrade. Users of these controllers have the option to buy a Serato DJ upgrade from serato.com or activate a Free 14 Day Trial to take advantage of all the advanced features Serato DJ has to offer. It’s easy to activate within the software, just download Serato DJ 1.5.2 and follow the in-app instructions.
