Screen Shot 2013-04-22 at 6.14.31 PMAll DJs know how important it is to keep their music libraries organized.  Serato makes it easy by including a feature called Crates.  Many Numark controllers such as the NS7, NS6, Mixtrack Pro I and II and the Mixdeck series, work with the Serato.  This guide walks through how to build crates and orgnize your music in the various Serato programs.

Note: once you build a Library in any one of these programs it will be shared through out all the programs.
