Serato have just release a free update (Itch 2.0) that seems to be taking some ideas from the lovely folks at Native Instruments. They are terming it the ‘Game-Changer’.
Having watched this little video they have put together, there does definitely seem to be some improvements, such as the sync functions and I do sort of like the stack mode for the decks. It doesn’t seem to look as nice as Traktor though and I feel they still have a bit of work to do in that area. Native instruments also have such amazing controllers at hand, but with Rane in partnership with Serato, I would expect to see some nice equipment coming at some point in the future.
Watch the video and judge for yourself. I’m still happy that my choice of software was Traktor.
