Pioneer is making the CDJ-900NXS professional series multi player compatible with the highly popular Serato® DJ software via an available firmware update (Version 1.20) at no charge. The firmware update offers compatibility with Serato DJ software Version 1.6.2, enabling intuitive DJ performance using music files stored on a computer without the need for a control disc.

In Online Mode with a USB connection to a computer using the software, Serato DJ functions will automatically link to corresponding buttons and keys of the CDJ-900NXS player. In addition, functions such as tempo adjustment, play/cue and loop can be made without a computer keyboard or mouse.

The built-in color display of the CDJ-900NXS will also indicate detailed track information from Serato DJ. Text, album artwork, waveform, cue/loop points and other information of a track will be illustrated on the color display of the CDJ player, resulting in quicker visual communication and enhanced DJ performance for the user. In addition, checking playback status and selecting tracks can all be done directly on the CDJ player, minimizing the need to use a computer screen to browse through tracks.
