A new version of Serato DJ is available for download. Version 1.9.4 enables support for two new exiting controllers, the Denon DJ MC7000 and the Reloop Mixon 4.

In the words of Martin Cains, Serato Product Owner:

This update supports the all new Denon DJ MC7000 & Reloop Mixon 4, two exciting and powerful all in one DJ controllers. The MC7000 is the latest controller with two separate USB interfaces, allowing DJs to change over easily as well as play back to back with two laptops. As well as this, there are controls for all the pro level Serato DJ features, with Serato Pitch ‘n Time DJ, Serato Flip and Serato Video all being included for free. We have also been working in close collaboration with Reloop in development of the Mixon4, their latest 4-channel controller for Serato DJ to ensure tight integration between hardware and software features. These controllers are both great devices for DJs wanting the flexibility of an all-in-one setup.

The Denon DJ MC7000 and the Reloop Mixon 4 are very exiting new controllers, and I hope to be reviewing them soon here on DjTechZone.

The Serato DJ 1.9.4 version can be downloaded here. If you use or want to upgrade to macOS Sierra, be sure to check your controllers compatibility here.

Just as a quick reminder, let’s review the specs of each controller.
