The software now runs in "practice mode" without a controller.
The trial version is now called Serato Lite (formerly Serato Intro), while the full version has been renamed Serato DJ Pro. Where previous versions required a controller or proprietary hardware, the new versions don't. They now come with a "practice mode" that allows for in-computer mixing, reports Create Digital Music.
New users can now download Serato Lite and get started immediately without a license or any kind of controller. Those who already have a Serato DJ license can use their pre-existing code with the new software.
Other updates include support for 64-bit, which means enhanced performance and fewer issues with memory or processing power. It also now supports high-resolution monitor or laptop displays.
