Club Kit mixer setup guide

 

What is the "Club Kit"?
The Club Kit means you can use the Pioneer DJ DJM-900NXS, DJM-900NXS2, DJM-850, Allen & Heath XONE:DB2, XONE:DB4, XONE:43C and Rane MP2015 mixers without needing an additional Serato Interface (Rane Box). Essentially, it is a Serato DJ licence and a DVS Expansion Pack licence bundled together as the "Club Kit". You can buy the Club Kit on our Online store or through the MY SERATO window inside the software. Both Serato DJ and the DVS Expansion Pack will need to be activated in the MY SERATO panel before they are able to be used.

For more information about the required licences to use a Club Kit ready mixer, check out the Club Kit licence guide here.

What do I need to do to get started?
1. Install Drivers

Connect your supported mixer and open Serato DJ. You should see an "Install Driver" dialogue box appear in the right hand side-panel. Click "Install Driver" and follow the installer prompts. If you don't have the supported hardware with you right now you can still download the driver from the manufacturers website. See your specific hardware manufacturer website for more details.

2. Select Input source

Nominate what input source you are using (ie, Line or Phono). Depending on your hardware this is either done from the mixer itself or from the mixer's driver panel. You can access the driver panel (hardware dependant) by clicking the “Setup Inputs” button under the AUDIO tab of the SETUP screen.

3. Select Primary Decks

Select your primary decks by opening the SETUP screen and clicking on the AUDIO tab. Choosing 'Channel 1 and 2' will allow you to have a traditional 1-2-3-4 channel configuration. Choosing 'Channel 2 and 3' will allow you to have a 3-1-2-4 configuration (from left to right across the mixer). Select which deck configuration you are using with the mixer and change if necessary. If you notice you are getting signal from your control tone but on the wrong deck, you might need to double-check your Primary Decks in the SETUP screen or the physical inputs on the back of the mixer.

You are now set up to use your mixer with Serato DJ and DVS control using the REL or ABS control modes. For more details on Control Modes, please refer to the Serato DJ manual. For individual mixer set up, click the corresponding links below:

Troubleshooting/FAQ
Can I trial Club Kit for free? I'm not sure if I want/need it yet..
Yes! If you start a free Serato DJ 14-day trial the DVS Expansion Pack will also be activated during this trial session. This will allow you to try out Serato DJ and the Club Kit with your compatible mixer free for 14 days!

My Club Kit ready mixer is not connecting to my computer
Try restarting your computer and/or the mixer. The drivers for the mixer might require the computer to be restated and can often help out when experiencing issues. Try power cycling the connected mixer as well to make sure that it connects to Serato DJ correctly.

Serato DJ and/or the DVS Expansion Pack is not activated
Once you have purchased the Club Kit (or individual products separately) you will need to activate them before they can be used. Log into the MY SERATO panel using your Serato.com email address and password. Go to the MY PRODUCTS section and make sure that both Serato DJ and the DVS Expansion pack are activated. Close the MY SERATO panel and try again.

Vinyl or CDJ control is playing on the wrong deck
If you notice you are getting signal from your control tone but on the wrong deck, you might need to double-check your Primary Decks selection in the SETUP screen or the physical inputs on the back of the mixer.

No signal from control vinyl or CDJ
Check that the Inputs have been set correctly on the mixer or in the AUDIO tab of the SETUP screen. You might need to open your device driver panel by clicking on SETUP INPUTS to properly assign you mixers inputs and outputs (hardware dependant).

The scope views in the SETUP screen are not circles
The scope view is a graphic depiction of how Serato DJ is reading the control signal it is receiving, displayed as a series of green circles. It is best to get your scopes as close to a perfect circle as possible. If you are having troubles with the scope view check out this article on Diagnosing the Scope Views
