Denon DJ unveiled that its DN-HC4500 USB MIDI/Audio Interface & Controller, the company’s first USB MIDI & Audio interface designed exclusively for computer performance, will be natively supported as a USB control-ler for Serato’s Scratch LIVE.
This announcement comes hot on the heels of recently released 1.8.0 public beta version, which offers such features as MIDI mapping, Off-Line Player, Auto Looping, and AAC file support to name a few.
The DN-HC4500 connects to a computer running Scratch LIVE via USB, all playback and other controls are transmitted over USB MIDI. This means that Scratch LIVE receives the control information directly from DN-HC4500. DJs have access to browsing and loading tracks from the DN-HC4500 and song information such as song title and artist are sent from Scratch LIVE to the DN-HC4500’s display screens.
For total flexibility in the field, the Denon DN-HC4500 offers support of both PC and Mac platforms, and features internal 24-Bit Processing & USB Audio. Among the DN-HC4500’s other advanced features is a Multi Functional Touch Sensitive Jog Disc constructed with an ultra high-resolution pulse and touch sensor to accurately reproduce the most subtle or swift scratching movements made by the human hand.
Highly responsive soft rubber but-tons, switches and knobs, plus 5 easily accessible function keys at top of each deck add to the DN-HC4500’s ease-of-use and utility, and 45mm pitch sliders are capable of providing deep resolution or wide pitch ranges.

The Denon DJ DN-HC4500 is currently available and shipping worldwide. Price: $499 MAP USD
Native support for the DN-HC4500 is scheduled to be included in Serato Scratch LIVE early in 2008.
MIDI mapping for the DN-HC4500 is available now with Serato’s public beta version 1.8.0.
Serato Scratch LIVE, including its hardware, is sold separately and not bundled with the DN-HC4500.
