MWM announces the collaboration between Phase and Serato DJ Pro.
Thursday, January 16, 2020 — In 2019, MWM took up the challenge to release the very first wireless controller for DVS, Phase, only after a year and a half of product development. Eight months after the release, MWM prepares to unveil its ambitions for 2020, promising to be exciting.

A collaborative upgrade to take the DJ setup to the next level.
To get the year off to a good start, MWM has just announced at NAMM Show 2020, the collaboration between its product Phase, and Serato, the industry leader in DJ software.

Improving the communication between the product and the software, the development of this new integration will allow Phase to communicate with Serato DJ Pro directly through USB. This upgrade will hugely enhance the overall performances of Phase with Serato thanks to a powerful custom HID protocol.

Easier to set up getting rid of the RCA cables, more powerful and accurate, Phase will take the DJ setup to the next level.

Availability and key features.
This upgrade will be available to all Phase and Serato users and is expected to be officially released later in 2020.

  • Plug’n’play
    No need to plug RCA cables anymore. Serato will directly read Phase through USB offering instant setup for the best possible experience.
  • Accuracy Improved
    Using a powerful HID protocol, Phase latency and accuracy have been improved like never before. Now digital control has never been so close to using real records!
  • A New Phase Experience
    Use Phase through USB as an Official Serato Accessory and access new features directly on Serato DJ Pro. Features will include special settings, customization and more.

Phase has never worked properly in the first place , cant wait to see how badly this goes.

Probably simple enough since they wil just be a HID based USB controller then...
But....
Then the whole "plug it into your DVS setup - it'll act the same except no cartridges needed and no skipping" that all the hype was based on is out the window?
Not sure that's a good move... Now they are just going to be another digital controller. Why not just buy 2 Rane Twelves then?

price difference is huge if you already have TT's.

well this is welcome but they're still missing a trick for analogue mixers, maybe another 12 months...

Absolutely zero issues what so ever with mine, even after the updates from them.

So you've never had issues with it going into sleep mode or lagging?

Had some issues in Serato with them having drift but no issues at all with sleep mode or lag with VDJ or Traktor.

Rumor mill in the groups is saying this will be ready to go and implemented by the end of the month for Serato, with Rekordbox integration happening very quickly soon after as well.

Is Atomix in discussion with MWM to have the new HID protocol integrated into VDJ as well? If not, this would be the first time ever that 2 competing software titles have a great feature that VDJ doesn't.
