We were first made aware of Serato DJ 1.9 Beta in October last year and now it's fully available.
Originally offered as a two-week trial, the software that integrates streaming service Pulselocker can now be downloaded by anyone willing to pay the $20 per month subscription. Apparently the $10 option will be available soon, but that doesn't support making tracks available offline.
The hook-up with Pulselocker means there's a 44 million-strong library of tracks to choose from and a whole host of bug fixes come with the update.
These include sorting out potential crashes when editing beatgrids, HID mode being inconsistent with Pioneer CDJs and videos causing crashes during imports.
A few additions to the software include Tempo Matching Display, audio and performance optimisations and fresh OSX drivers for the 43C, DB2 and DB4 models of Allen & Heath mixers.
