    Default What do I need to connect cdj's to serato?

    I'm looking at upgrading my gear to cdj's but wanting to use with serato as also cd's as all my music is on my mac. What do I need to hook cdj's to serato? Looking at purchasing pioneer cdj mk3 with djm 600?

    You will need a Serato interface.

    I’d go with a Serato enabled mixer. You’ll also need a midi controller for Serato navigation, looping, efx, etc.,,

    You said 'mk3s'. That's not a model of CDJs. If you buy newer ones, you'll have plug-and-play HID support with Serato DJ.
