    Did some research on Serato Flip.

    Announcing Serato Flip. A brand new Expansion Pack for Serato DJ that allows you to create custom edits, extend and re-imagine your music...

    Not only a great beat sketch pad, Serato Flip can also be used as a powerful DJ tool. The simple, yet effective control set designed with the DJ in mind allows you to use it in your set in a number of ways:

    - Make clean edits of your tracks by recording censor actions.
    - Extend intros, breakdowns or outros for better mixing.
    - Create transition sections in your songs for changing tempo or beat structure.
    - Advanced tone-play and performance.
    - Auto-skipping verses or choruses in songs.
    - Making beats.

    Serato Flip will be available as a paid Expansion Pack in Serato DJ 1.7, coming this September. It will be available for purchase in-app and on the Serato Online Store for USD $29.

    How will this be different from the current inputs and outputs?

    The original SX was internally wired in a way that wouldn't allow DVS control. Guess they've changed it for version 2.

    Oh, interesting. I guess it wouldn't matter to me, because if I ever wanted to add turntables to my setup, it'd be real vinyl. I don't see the point of adding DVS to the controller.

    Wasn't that the same for Denon MC6000 mk1 then they released firmware update which enabled DVS for Traktor/VDJ?

    Scratching on decks A & B with turntables+midi and C & D with the controller?

    From what I've heard from others that supposedly talked to Pioneer, the SX has inputs, but they are not connected to the soundcard. This is essential for DVS to be possible.

    How would that be different from scratching with the controller? I mean, unless you want the feel of real vinyl.

    It's different in that you can scratch on four decks at once, whereas you could only use two if you're just using the controller.
