I will be surprised if InMusic or any hardware company will pay 200 a pop to serato.
They probably pay for bulk licensing.
When I had the MC6000MKII i had to register the hardware before they issued a serato code.
The serato full license retails between 50 to 129 euros to regular customers
Plus the fact that the license is baked into the hardware. It’s not a flexible license.
But is the juice worth the squeeze…because that comes with it’s extra responsibilities of supporting, innovating as we have seen here.
I reckon It will be cheaper than 50 quid to manufacturers.
I’d understand if the manufacturer moves a lot of gear, then they will start considering in house solutions. And it’s probably down to greed, not wanting another company eating off their backs, especially if it’s not an exclusive relationship.
I don’t think this is even due to any delays on serato side.
Serato will release a version to support a toaster overnight if necessary.
The Numark scratch is a 499 mixer and there is no way Serato is taking 200 out of that.
The Akai AMX was 299 or lower cant remember
That will be mad.
Just my own thoughts.
