Serato users should wait to upgrade to macOS Catalina. (Source: Serato)
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.

As with any modern digital DJ device, it’s important to keep up with firmware updates. On this episode of Tips and Tricks, DJcityTV’s Mojaxx takes a quick look at the beta firmware update for Rane’s SEVENTY-TWO mixer. The update was recently released in conjunction with the public beta of Serato DJ Pro 2.1.
With the update, TIDAL subscribers are able to play songs from their playlists within Serato. This feature also works with the Serato DJ Lite 1.1 Public Beta.
Another notable feature in this beta is the Serato Play expansion pack. This builds off of the practice mode feature by enabling control over four virtual decks with pitch sliders, faders, and effects using keyboard shortcuts in place of hardware.
