Serato Scratch Live Update 1.9.1

For all us digital DJ heads out there, this new update of Serato should be extremely exciting. In the last version of the software we saw the introduction of the SP-6 sampler. Although this was a great new feature, it left most of us wondering of a way to play whole tracks in the sampler and effectively mix them. Well with this new update you can do all that and more. There is now a pitch slider, key lock, and cue points which are all midi controllable. You can also send an instant double of a track to a sampler track. So I can use the tables to mix two tracks, send one to the sampler while I’m mixing, load a third track to the turntable, and have three tracks mixing together. Sweet! Now I don’t have to buy a third turntable. I think this is a big step for Rane, because Tracktor definitely had them smashed in the multipe deck catagory. Now you can mix up to eight tracks together. I can now see the direction where the Ableton/Serato partnership might be heading. Imagine those six sampler banks to be six ableton channels that will all sync together. Check out the official video for more on this new update.
