Hid mode on the CDJ-2000nexus is now compatible with Serato scratch live. Hid mode on the CDJs basically means you can control DJ software without using time code CDs, so the CDJs act as controllers to the software. You can use your existing Serato sound card, so we’ll connect each CDJ to get started via USB. Then once we’ve done that we’ll open up scratch live and we’ll hit link. We can scroll down to control mode, push to connect and then you can choose between deck one and deck two. Deck one is left and deck two is right. So we’ll chose deck one here, go and do the same thing here and then choose deck two. So once you’ve done that, just go in to the two virtual decks on Serato and set them to internal mode and that tells Serato that the Playback is being dealt with inside Serato and the CDJ is just a controller. So once that’s all been done you can then see the library on screen. So I’ve got the crates here and as I twist it you can then see everything on screen there. If I click and load a track at random, the waveform then loads at the bottom. And all of the controls then work instantly so there’s no extra mapping to do at all All of the controls do link up to those in Serato, the only controls that don’t link up is the slip mode button and the two beat sync buttons, but you can map those to what ever you want.There’s a full list of what the controls do in out start up guide and the download link will be in the description of the video. When using hid modem there’s a couple of things to bear in mind, first of all make sure you are on the latest version of scratch live so it supports the CDJs This can be downloaded from Serato as of now Secondly you may need to get a USB hub is you are using multiple CDJs if you haven’t got enough ports on your computer obviously And lastly you have to keep your firmware up to date on the CDJs just to make sure it works with Serato. We have got a video on how to update the firmware so if you’re not sure how just check that one out.
