Serato has issued a warning telling users to hold off on updating to macOS Catalina. The software maker has discovered some performance issues with Serato DJ Lite and DJ Pro while testing the beta version of Apple’s upcoming operating system.

Here’s what Mojaxx has to say:

“At DJcity we always recommend that users hold off from doing major operating system updates until software developers and hardware manufacturers have given the definite all-clear for you to safely go ahead.

In the past, we’ve even seen new audio issues appear between the final beta and full releases of a new OS. So unless you absolutely HAVE to upgrade for some reason, we recommend you wait until you’re certain there won’t be problems.”

Stay tuned for more information from Serato.
