Serato Unveils ITCH 2.0 – Too Late?
Serato has announced ITCH 2.0, the next generation of their digital DJ mixing software. The new software won’t bow until late Summer / early Fall, which gives Traktor Pro 2 a huge head start. The complementary Novation Twitch controller provides a tremendous lift to ITCH, almost akin to what Akai’s APC40 did for Ableton Live 8, but will it be too late?
