Pioneer DJ CDJ-900NXS Now Compatible with Serato DJ

By  | 

Pioneer DJ has released a new firmware update making the CDJ-900NXS compatible for Serato DJ users. The Version 1.20 firmware offers compatibility with Serato DJ 1.6.2, enabling DJ performances using music stored on a computer without the need for a control disc.

In Online Mode, users can connect the CDJ-900NXS to a computer running Serato DJ via USB, which will automatically link to corresponding buttons and keys of the hardware. Tempo adjustment, play/cue, and looping can all used with a computer keyboard or mouse.

Additionally, the CDJ-900NXS will show detailed track information—including text, album artwork, waveform, cue/loop points, and more—on its illuminated color display. Playback status and track selection can also be done directly from the CDJ, reducing the need to constantly check back on the computer screen.

CDJ-900NXS firmware update 1.20 is available here. Serato DJ 1.6.2 is also available for free here.
