How can we help?


The Sampler allows you to play up to four sources of audio, in addition to the tracks playing on the Virtual Decks. Any audio file in your Serato DJ Lite library can be loaded to any one of the four slots, allowing playback of short samples, audio loops, sound effects, or full length tracks.
Click on the Sampler button to open the Sampler panel.

NOTE: The Sampler is only operational when Serato DJ Lite hardware is connected, and it is not able to be used in Practice mode. It can be used with Serato Play in Serato DJ Lite however.

Sampler Overview

The Sampler slots show the four slots, their playing status, and the Sampler Master Volume and Sample Master Mute toggle.
