Serato Itch 2.0 Available
Serato announced the release of Itch 2.0 DJ software.
Itch 2.0 is the latest update for Serato Itch, a digital DJ software designed to work with co-engineered controllers made by hardware companies such as Vestax, Numark, Allen & Heath, Pioneer and Novation.
The new version features changeable Night & Day modes for clear navigation at any time of the day. A range of display modes lets DJs choose their preferred deck and waveform arrangement; either vertical, horizontal or library mode. Album Art Views have also been added for library browsing.
Itch 2.0 is described as the first version to include a re-optimized sync engine, with new Serato SmartSync technology designed to create "a new sync structure behind the scenes."
The Serato SP-6 Sample Player makes its debut in Itch 2.0, with Serato’s SmartSync. The SP-6 Sample Player offers four banks with six slots each to trigger drops, loops and songs into the mix. Library Management has been improved so DJs can copy crates & tracks to external drives for gigs. New Smart Crates auto-fill with tracks using chosen keywords from a DJ’s music library and Serato Playlists allows for sharing of tracklists, either as they play, or online afterwards.
