Bye Bye ITCH, Hello Serato DJ

The boys over at Rane have been busy working on their newest controller software, and this means the end for their short-lived bastard child software, Serato ITCH.  Serato DJ is the name of this new controller software; but it’s more than just a name.  Improvements have been made that put it in the ranks of Traktor and friends – especially in the effects department.

No screenshots have been leaked yet, but pertinent facts about the upgrade have been released.  Midi mapping has finally been integrated into the software, allowing you to sort out external controllers the way please – and 8 cue points are now available (instead of 4) with a host of new effects like flanger, ping pong delay, phaser, and distortion.  User of Numark’s N4 will have the ability to control 4 decks through Serato.
