New update including Firmware 6 and Serato DJ USB integration is available as a public beta version

Our most advanced update yet, Firmware, 6 is available for download as a beta version. Not only will it give access to the beta version of the Serato DJ Pro USB integration, but it also brings many important improvements and new features to upgrade the Phase overall experience.

What's New?


Improvements

Cue Drift Optimization

  • The internal calibration process has been reworked to compensate for the temperature drift that can cause the Remote cue drift in some situations over time. 
  • A new automatic internal calibration system also turns on each time it detects that the internal sensors are not properly calibrated in order to enhance their accuracy.
  • The way data is transferred between the Remotes and the Receiver has been completely reviewed to ensure the integrity and accuracy of the information sent, in order to improve Phase precision performances.


Reduction of the BPM fluctuations

Improvement of the precision of the sensors, especially during constant speed rotation, in order to reduce BPM fluctuations and ensure better accuracy.


Rework of the Manual calibration feature

You can now run a manual calibration during your set, which doesn’t cut and stop the sound anymore. It is extremely important that the Remotes are calibrated correctly, thus our goal with this update was to ease this feature as much as possible.


Faster automatic calibration wake-up time when Remotes are taken out of the Receiver

The system of automatic calibration is now twice faster than before, to speed up the setup processes and improve the sensors’ accuracy. From now on, you can swiftly set up your Phase only with a few steps!


Improvements on overall stability. Numerous optimizations have been added to improve stability and ease of use.


New Features

A new manual calibration: the Double-Tap feature (beta)

This new calibration system has been developed so that the calibration could be done on the go without the need of opening Phase Manager.

This new calibration system has been developed so that the calibration could be done on the go without the need of opening Phase Manager: simply double-tap on top of the Remote.

This feature can be activated in the Phase Manager settings, under the Calibration tab.

Battery percentage displayed in Phase Manager

You can now access the battery percentage of your Remotes on Phase Manager while they are charging on the Receiver decks, which wasn’t an option before.

LED Colors Management Improvement

You can now change the colors of your Remotes LED on Phase Manager, even if your Remotes are not in the Receiver.

 

Serato HID Integration

New USB communication via HID protocol:

Development of a new communication protocol between Phase and Serato DJ Pro built on an HID protocol, which allows Phase to communicate directly with Serato DJ Pro via USB, without the need for RCA cables. Phase just has to be connected to the laptop via USB to communicate with Serato DJ Pro.

Improvement of the accuracy and reduction of latency:

Thanks to this powerful HID protocol, the communication between Phase and Serato DJ Pro is now twice faster, reducing latency even more. A 100% digital communication that offers better accuracy and foolproof stability.

New dedicated features:

Full integration of Phase with Serato DJ Pro offers specially designed features, such as new Serato deck mode dedicated to the use of Phase in HID mode (Wireless mode), the display of the battery percentage of the Remotes within Serato, and custom-designed animations of your Remotes LEDs that now blink to indicate when the track is loaded, or when a track comes to the end (with the “Track End warning” mode activated in the Serato settings).

 

Fixed Issues

Remotes detection 

Resolution of the issue that was preventing the Receiver from properly detecting the Remotes, which enhances stability.

General bug fixes on the stability of the Remotes

Firmware 6 also tackles some minor bug issues on the global operation of the Remotes and the Receiver to improve the overall performance.

    I am unable to update to Firmware 6 using the Phase manager beta. The A/B buttons just kind of blink dimly B button slightly brighter and then I get the Failure please retry msg. Then the receiver will stay unresponsive until unplugged and plugged back in.

    I update it, everything worked well with the phase at the first time but a latency in the waveform on MacBook screen. Then, after I closed and re-open, the sound was dirty, with lots of troubles. Unusable…

      Hi there! Thanks so much for your message. If your MacBook has an Intel, then this behavior is indeed strange and you should reach out to our customer support team: https://bit.ly/303svlV

      And if you have an M1 chip, it is unfortunately not supported with Macs like this at the moment. But if you need any further assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out via the link above! 🙌
