Serato DJ 1.6.1 Update available now

Two exciting new features that Serato DJ 1.6.1 brings are the ability to open multiple performance panels at once and being able to select the location for your recordings. Keep reading for a run through on how these features work, and how they could help you.

Multiple Panels

Serato DJ 1.6.1 allows you to have multiple performance panels open at once. This means you can now control multiple features such as FX, SP-6 and Serato Video without having to switch panels, making it easier to see what you are controlling.

When selecting panels with the mouse they will stack, however if you are using a controller with a panel select button, panels will toggle the same way you were familiar with before, without compromising library space.

All Panels

You can even have all panels open if you like. This will cause the Virtual decks to go into the smaller ‘Library’ view giving enough room for everything if your screen resolution can’t support larger virtual decks.
