USER REVIEWS

Create your own beautiful music and mixes with this reliable program

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, August 22, 2014

Before, you need to have a turntable and a huge collection of vinyl if you want to be a DJ. But now, many professional and amateur DJs are only using laptops and mixers in their live performances. Also, they utilize a DJ mixing software to add more quality and power to their sets. Serato DJ can manage two and even four track decks simultaneously. You can see the various frequencies and recognize them through their colors. The red, green and blue refer to the different waveforms namely the bass, mid-range and high-end frequencies respectively. At the same time, synchronizing tracks with this program is a breeze. Plus, it works well with many turntable controllers. Moreover, the songs in your iTunes library will be readily available on Serato once you use it. There is no need to upload the songs one by one saving you precious time and effort. You can also use the other great features of this software like Multi FX Mode and Snap to Beatgrids option. Overall, the fact that it is used by many popular professional DJs today is more than enough to check out this reliable software. This is by far one of the best DJ mixing programs I have ever tried.

Pros

  • Basic and easy to use interface
  • The various waveforms are color-coded

Cons

  • May encounter audio connection problems

Serato dj is one of the products that bring virtual djying into reality

By Frank Kanyua

On Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Serato dj is one of the products that bring virtual djying into reality as it mostly supports mixing without having to use a mixing deck. though at some instant for clearity and simplicity a deck is required.

The software at hand will allow you to mix, choose songs and place them in a qeue, add special effects, stop and cut songs among other features. The interface is also very easily designed to offer a non complex environment for starters and even proffesionals. As you keep on learning to use the software you will discover other major tweaks in the product itself. Experimental plugins are also available but mostly from third party vendors.

The software itself is very classic as it gives a cool environment to use with non lag audio output. A few tests can prove to you that serato is among the top rank of the virtual dj world. Other products are vitual dj, acid pro, deckadance and others.

The serato mixer can display various interface but this changes with the type of screen resolution you have, just like when you have a wide screen of 1280 by 1040 with virtual dj, you can get upto six decks from the default two.

Even with serato you can change this, the default is of audio bars and after changing it you can get decks with bars and so on. but most of this are experimental since i havent tried it with different computers.

CONCLUSION

The serato dj is very good as it brings some tech reality into your music mix. offers an easier solution to beginners and for advanced users, has a display tray for all the songs you have played and the ones on qeue. This is a very good product i8f you dont have a mixing deck yet.

Pros

  • It is free but some plugins have to be paid for.
  • Is easy to learn for beginners

Cons

  • Lacking a deck could prove some of the use hard
