Setting up Phase with the Serato DJ Pro USB integration (HID mode)
This quick setup tutorial provides detailed instructions on how to get your DJ equipment ready to use with the Phase and Serato DJ Pro USB integration. Our video tutorial can be found at the bottom of the page, as well as our FAQ on the Serato DJ Pro USB integration.
- Phase up to date with the Firmware 7
- Serato DJ Pro v.2.5 or higher
- A primary device enabling Serato DVS license, or a primary device supporting DVS with a Serato DVS license.
1. Set up your Phase with Serato DJ Pro (v.2.5 or higher): open Serato DJ Pro, plug your DVS interface, and simply connect your Phase Receiver to your laptop via USB.
2. In Serato DJ Pro, set the deck control mode to “WIR” (standing for “wireless”) as illustrated below: this is the dedicated HID control mode for Phase.
3. Place your Remotes on top of your non-spinning records, and as usual, wait a few seconds for the calibration to be done (the LED turns solid), and start playing your tracks.
Additional Setup Tip
You can run a Manual calibration via Phase Manager to ensure your Remotes are spinning exactly at the right speed. To do so, open the Calibration menu of the Phase Manager settings and follow the directions.

Phase and Serato DJ Pro USB integration FAQ
Can I still use RCA cables after updating to the latest firmware?
Yes, it is possible to continue using Phase with the RCA cables. The process remains the same as before: make sure the cables are plugged from the Receiver to the Line inputs of your mixer or DVS interface, and don’t forget to switch the decks to Relative mode in your DJ software.
I noticed something unusual while using the Serato DJ Pro USB integration, how can I report it?
If you encounter issues or if you notice unexpected behaviors while using the Phase and Serato USB integration, please get in touch with us through this contact form.
Do I need a DVS interface and the Serato DVS Expansion pack to use the USB integration?
Yes, you need a primary device enabling the Serato DVS license, or a primary device supporting DVS with a Serato DVS license. You won’t be able to use the integration without a DVS interface.
Is the Phase and Serato DJ Pro USB integration free?
The Phase firmware update and the features coming along with the Serato DJ Pro update are free of charge, but you must own a Phase unit and either a primary device unlocking the Serato DVS expansion pack to use the integration, or a Serato DVS expansion pack license.
How does the Phase and Serato USB integration work, what is HID?
HID is a USB communication protocol that allows a fast information transmission between a hardware device and a computer. It is commonly used for CDJ players and for many hardware devices. The HID communication provides a faster transmission of data, enhances the communication between the devices, improves stability, and extends the quality of sent data.
Thanks to this powerful HID protocol, Phase is now fully integrated with Serato DJ Pro, which means it can be directly connected to the laptop via USB without the need for RCA cables.
Using an HID communication allows us to send the data much faster between the Phase Receiver and the DJ Software. It offers DJs an even more accurate, reliable experience with reduced latency.
This integration brings out great optimisations and brand new features to enrich Phase experience with Serato DJ Pro. To know more about the Phase and Serato DJ Pro integration, read more on our website.
