SC5000 Prime used as a USB Hub in Serato Controller Mode


#1

With the latest (1.9.10) version of Serato, you can use the Denon DJ SC5000 in Serato Controller Mode: See more here: -

Please note: It is possible to use the Prime/Serato Controller Mode in (up to) a 3-player set-up, without the need for an external powered USB hub – by using one SC5000 as a ‘powered USB hub’ and daisy-chaining. Please follow these connections guidelines and note the highlight on use of a USB 3.0 Cable - Daisy chaining setup examples below:

2 DECKS (SC5000 1 used as powered hub)

SC5000 1 to PC/Mac via USB 3.0 Cable X1800 to PC/Mac via USB 2.0 Cable SC5000 2 to SC5000 1 USB 2/3 via USB 3.0 Cable

3 DECKS (SC5000 1 used as powered hub)

SC5000 1 to PC/Mac via USB 3.0 Cable X1800 to PC/Mac via USB 2.0 Cable SC5000 2 to SC5000 1 USB 2 via USB 3.0 Cable SC5000 3 to SC5000 1 USB 3 via USB 3.0 Cable

4 DECKS (Use an external powered hub to minimize the number of hubs used)

Powered USB 3.0 hub to PC/Mac via USB 3.0 Cable SC5000 1 to Hub via USB 3.0 Cable X1800 to PC/Mac via USB 2.0 Cable SC5000 2 hub via USB 3.0 Cable SC5000 3 hub via USB 3.0 Cable SC5000 4 hub via USB 3.0 Cable

How many of you have tried wiring things up this way, effectively removing the need for a powered USB Hub ?


#3

I have. :raising_hand_man:t6:

This should be in big fonts on the promo page.


#4

Tried it for the sake of trying it. Works like a charm and as stated early, this is a very crucial function that should be highlighted as a selling point since it’s once less thing users have to worry about.

I’ll set this as a Pinned Topic for the next month. Forum members can unpin it themselves manually, once read.

Why just on the forum?

You can even release a quick tip video tutorial for it in YouTube or an official how to connect to Serato video tutorial.

Crucial selling point like @Lostnthesound said.
