Serato DJ Pro 2.2 Coming Soon With Day Mode & Play Counts
Huge news from Serato this week as the company announced the public beta of Serato DJ Pro 2.2 with two long-awaited features: Day Mode and Play Count. The update also adds waveform improvements, SoundCloud and TIDAL streaming updates, and support for 64-bit video for Mac users. Keep reading for more.
For DJs who play outdoor gigs, day parties, and festivals, the new Day Mode feature will make it easier to see your screen display under bright conditions. This feature existed back in the Serato ITCH days but never made it to Scratch Live or Serato DJ Pro. Although DJs have since found workarounds, having this feature exist natively in the software is a welcomed addition.
Another new feature included in the beta that DJs have always wanted is Play Count. Until now, there hasn’t been a way to keep track of how many times a song was previously played in Serato DJ Pro. Having this new Play Count feature to keep a tally of each time you play either locally stored and streamed tracks is a game changer. We also think this feature is great because it will make it easier to clean up your crates and get rid of tracks you never play.
Here is a breakdown of the rest of the new features added in the Serato DJ Pro 2.2 beta:
64-bit video for Mac
VJs get something to cheer about with the update as it includes support for 64-bit video for Mac users. This will increase the level of stability and performance in Serato Video.
DJs will see smoother, better-performing waveforms in Serato DJ Pro with this improvement.
SoundCloud and TIDAL streaming updates
Streaming from SoundCloud and TIDAL within Serato DJ Pro will see improvements in version 2.2 as well. The update includes batch analyzing, a download progress indicator, and the ability to create and edit SoundCloud playlists within Serato DJ Pro.
DJs, keep in mind that Serato DJ Pro 2.2 is still in public beta and using it for gigs in this stage is probably not a good idea. For more details or to download the beta, head over to Serato’s website. Check back here for more news on the full release from Serato.
