Does anyone know if serato dj is eventually going to be compatible with windows 8? It's getting kind of ridiculous how long the wait is. I'm ready to get a new laptop but its impossible to find windows 7 laptops with the specs I need.

The last Q&A session they did, the next update 1.5 will support Windows 8

I've been running Serato DJ with Windows 8 for months and never had any problem! Very responsive, no dropouts.

I'm using a VCI 380 on a Samsung 9 series core i5 with 8gigs ram, SDD and an external hard drive.

When will the next update be available?

I too am using it but only the 1.2.1, I tried to upgrade to 1.3 using my NS6 and everytime I hooked up my NS6 SDJ would crash.

Get requests into Serato,

Windows 8 isn't going away and all new systems are shipping with it pretty much.
DJ Quartz 6:14 PM - 14 September, 2013
I'm on Mac now but when I have more time I will experiment with Windows 8.

....DUDE.. try it !

i had the 'Sound pause 2-3 seconds' with 7 (full optimised)....so after having tried a lot of stuff i tried 8 ...

and NEVER looked back one second. ... for me. win 8 has been a major improvement. (even without optimisation)

...try it.

not going back to 7 ...8 solved my problem (acer i5, 500 ssd, 8ram)

This probably database related as well.

What version are you using?
w@tless 10:08 PM - 22 September, 2013
The latest version.
DJ FreddyO 10:49 PM - 22 September, 2013
The latest version doesn't work with windows 8. The version before works perfect.
w@tless 12:08 AM - 23 September, 2013
So serato dj 1.2.1 will work for sure.
w@tless 12:09 AM - 23 September, 2013

DJ FreddyO 1:20 AM - 23 September, 2013
Yes it will. Been using that for a few months with no issues!
