Serato DJ users can download Serato DJ 1.7.3, a minor update adding support for Pioneer’s XDJ-1000.
The Pioneer XDJ-1000—the first in a new line of digitally focused USB and Serato DJ-ready players—is the USB-only, touch-capable successor to the CDJ, and Serato DJ now supports the player in HID mode when used in conjunction with suported Serato DJ hardware. With the 1.7.3 update, the XDJ-1000 is pre-mapped to the software in HID mode, allowing users to control features like Library Navigation, Looping, Slip Mode, Cue Points, Quantize, Sync, and more.
Serato DJ 1.7.3 is available now as a free update for Serato DJ users at Serato.com/DJ/Downloads. Watch a general HID Mode demo video below and go here for more information about using the Pioneer XDJ-1000 with Serato DJ.
