Serato moved some things around a bit and made the user interface a little bit cleaner and user friendly, but the only real improvement from Serato DJ Intro to Serato DJ Lite is the Practice Mode.  I think this program is great for people that are just beginning to learn to DJ, Mobile DJs and for doing small, unique venues where you don't feel like lugging around a bunch of bells and whistles.  With t…
