New Software! Serato DJ Intro - It's like Serato... LE version??

From Serato Website:

Serato introduces their "LE" edition of Serato Scratch Live DJ Software - "Serato DJ Intro"

For now, Serato DJ Intro 1.0.1 supports the following controllers free of charge:
  • Numark MixDeck
  • Numark MixDeck Express
  • Numark MixTrack Pro
  • Vestax Typhoon
  • Vestax VCI-100 Mk II
  • And more
Which means if you own any of those controllers, you are able to use Serato DJ Intro FREE! (Which is pretty cool - serato used to be  'exclusive' and full functionality only unlocked by plugging the SL1/2/3 hardware which acted as a 'security dongle')

The software itself seems to use the above controllers as the new dongles to unlock the functionality of the Serato DJ Intro software. 

Previously people only have the option of using the very limited Traktor LE and the Virtual DJ Le - now if you really must use Serato  (for some reason)- You Can! 

Serato Scratch Live is a very very popular DJ software, personally in Singapore I have observed many of the local resident DJs using Serato as the majority, as Traktor Scratch starts to become more and more common, these two companies are really going head to head with each other!

So there you go

Expect to see the lower end gear like Mixtrack Pro and Vestax Typhoon selling like hotcakes now that Serato can be used on them!!
