    What is new about this?

    All you need for this is a controller with 4 channels...

    I can do the same thing with my ns6 without the cost of 4 cdjs.

    The point is the fact you can control 2 at a time with the jog wheel on a 4 channel controller. That's not the same as 4 CDJs which are tactically accessible at all times, rather than having have to click a 3/4 button.

    I can think of limited uses for that technique - surely not enough to warrant buying 4 cdjs.

    cool. and i like how you always bring 110% energy to your mixes, even after all these years.
    how does cueing work if it just one soundcard?

    I can remember linking multiple controllers and soundcards to Torq about a decade ago.
    Good to know Serato is catching up.
    bored, curious, deaf or just bad taste in music?
    finally a mix by me
    and what's this, another shoddy mix...another dull mix

    Me too... with Torq too!

    This really is pretty cool. I wonder if it's a MacOS thing or if the same exploit will work under Windows. I also wonder if it will go away with a new version of the OS, the app, or a driver.

    That being said... does plugging in two four channel controllers offer any advantage - other than having all four decks able to be manipulated at once? Actually, I'd be happy with just that. I always wondered why someone didn't come out with a four jogwheel controller - or at least have standalone jogwheel single deck expansion controllers with no inputs or outputs.

    What's this about CDJ's? He's just got two Serato controllers so he can control four Serato decks each with their own channel on a controller rather than having to flip two channels back and forth to control four decks. Seems pretty cool to me.

    Ahh I see now.

    Better, but still too expensive for the amount of control.

    As mentioned at about four minutes in the video it's 2x $250 for the controllers plus $99 for the Serato DJ upgrade.

    That's $600. Or about the average price of one old Technics turntable.

    Divided by thirteen equals $600.

    The U.S. pentagon budget consumes 80% of individual income tax revenue. The Pentagon spends more on war than all 50 states combined spend on health, education, welfare, and safety.
