Serato has announced the release of the Dan Tippett artist series control vinyl, a 2×12″ picture disc set with Serato’s re-mastered NoiseMap Control Tone.
Brand new to the Serato Artist Series Pressings comes this New Zealand inspired double set by local Auckland artist, Dan Tippett.
Dan conceived this piece to create the feeling of our land, Aotearoa, to tell the story of Serato and where we are from. A mythical postcard from our home. This is extremely limited and available on the Serato Online Store and selected retailers.
And here’s the best bit… one set will have a gold rim. The lucky person to find this gold rim set will win a trip to visit Serato HQ in New Zealand, meet Steve and AJ (the inventors), hang out with the team and come to our 15th birthday party!
The Dan Tippett control vinyl costs 69 USD.

Serato has announced version 1.3 of its Serato DJ mixing software for Windows and Mac.
Serato DJ is our best feature set for all-in-one controllers. It delivers performance to meet the demands of DJs at the top of their game and sets a new standard for controller DJs.
Changes in Serato DJ v1.3
- Serato DJ FX Expansion Packs containing new FX powered by iZotope: The Wolf Pack, available as a free download, and the Back Pack, available to purchase for USD19.
The Wolf Pack contains Epic Verb, Bit Crush, Tremolo, Repeater, Braker and Brake Echo, and the Back Pack contains Tape Echo, Looper, Time Stretch, Spiral Echo and Envelope Filter. Both packs contain a large number of Multi FX presets.
- Favorite FX allows you to customize the effects select drop down menus that appear in Serato DJ, showing the FX you choose as your favorites.
- Slip Mode for all supported Serato DJ controllers. When Slip Mode is activated you can manipulate the audio as normal (e.g scratching, Looping, triggering Cue Points etc), however once you have finished, the playback position is returned to where it would be if you had not manipulated the audio. Slip Mode can also be MIDI mapped to a secondary MIDI controller if your hardware doesn’t have a dedicated Slip Mode button.
- Novation TWITCH, Vestax VCI-300 & VFX-1 Support.
- Numark NS7 MKII Support.
- Fixed Tap tempo lighting on Pioneer DDJ-SX.
- Fixed the crossfader curve options being swapped in the Setup screen.
- Changed vinyl button lighting on Vestax VCI-400 to make it more clear that you are in slip mode.
- Numark MixDeck and MixDeck Express now show correct BPM when a deck is in Sync.
- Fixed Play from First Cue Point Setup screen option stability.
- Fixed platter scratching on NS7 with motor off and track paused.
- Fixed needle-search on VCI-380.
- Fixed a bug where Play from First Cue Point option was broken if track configured with first cue point.
- Fixed Beatgrid Slip not working with motor off on NS7
- Start/Stop time on NS7 is now remembered in software with motor off.
- Fixed Slip/Shift mode platter interaction.
- Fixed a bug where Shift + Beatgrid Adjust sometimes moved playhead when it shouldn’t.
- Fixed deck showing incorrect pitch sometimes after switching layers
- MIDI mapping of the Autoloop range shift buttons (< and >) unfortunately has been broken and users will need to remap them.

Following the unveiling of all-new DJ innovations at Musikmesse 2013 in Germany—including the new Mixtrack Quad and Mixtrack Edge controllers—Numark has announced that Serato DJ is now compatible with the Numark NS7, NS7FX, Mixdeck and Mixdeck Express DJ controllers.
Serato DJ is already compatible with Mixtrack Pro and Mixtrack Pro II, and compatibility with the top-selling NS6 four-channel DJ controller was announced in February—a free upgrade for NS6 owners.
“We’re committed to giving DJs the best tools possible,” said Chris Roman, Numark Product Manager. “That’s why we’ve worked so quickly and so closely with Serato to bring Serato DJ to more and more Numark controllers. The Numark-Serato combination is what DJs are asking for.”
Serato DJ includes a wide range of all-new features and capabilities, and the latest version—Serato DJ 1.2.0—also brings the addition of Multi FX Mode for all. Multi FX Mode is a powerful and easy-to-use effects mode that unlocks the next evolution of creative control.
Owners of the NS7, NS7FX and NS6 controllers can upgrade to Serato DJ for free at serato.com/dj/downloads.
The Numark Mixdeck, Mixdeck Express, Mixtrack Pro and Mixtrack Pro II controllers are eligible for a free 14-day fully functional trial version of Serato DJ and, for a limited time, can be upgraded completely to Serato DJ for $129 at serato.com/dj/buy.
Compatibility with the Numark N4 and Mixdeck Quad controllers is expected to be available this summer.
