Projection Mapping for Serato

Ever want to get away from the computer but still use Serato? This projection concept allows for that, sorta. Check out the video, its a pretty interesting concept. Your tracks or waveforms get projected right on the records and the playlists are infront of you. I have no idea how they did this. And I dont really see a real life application for this, unless you were doing a special artsy show. But its cool nonetheless. Video is after the jump:

Serato Video SL, now on sale! (video examples)

Not the biggest of news, but it is noteworthy. If you have ever  wanted to expand your mixing abilities to video, this is a great chance. Right now, Video SL, the plugin for Serato Scratch Live that allows you to play  video files, is on sale for $99! That is half off the normal price of $199. Buy it from Serato. It is a great plugin and even if you don't use videos while you are mixing, it allows you to use MP4s (or other video files) like MP3s. Otherwise they wont even show up in your music library (however that might have been an old problem, but they wont play without the plugin). If you are on the fence, get off the fence and buy yourself a gift! Click through for some videos of some great usus of Video SL.

Novation Dicer, a video review by DJ Color TV

As promised, below is the video review of Novation's Dicer midi controller for Serato Scratch Live. These things are durable and snappy. There, from what I can tell, zero latency and they work great. You need Serato 2.1 to use them and as of now, it is only in public beta. This beta version is buggy, so I do not recommend using this version of serato at a gig.

Either way, these Dicers are really easy to use and will be a good addition to any Serato DJ. Links to Serato 2.1, the DIcer unboxing pictures, and video are after the jump:
