With their latest firmware update, Denon DJ has brought streaming music to the Prime 4 standalone DJ system. The Prime 4 v1.4 firmware public beta enables internet access via either WiFi or a hardwired connection. Once connected, the controller is able to stream music from TIDAL.

Registered Prime series users and members of the v1.4 public beta will receive a free, 3-month TIDAL HiFi trial subscription.

While streaming is currently limited to the Prime 4, Denon DJ plans on bringing this feature to the SC5000 and SC5000M standalone media players in the near future.

Following their announcement last week, Serato has released the Serato DJ Pro 2.1 Public Beta. This version sees the return of music streaming to the software, among other additions.

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.

Music streaming services SoundCloud and TIDAL will be integrated into an upcoming release of Serato DJ Pro and Serato DJ Lite, the company has announced.

The streaming tracks will appear in Serato just like regular music files. Additionally, saved playlists on the streaming platforms will automatically appear in the Serato DJ library.

To make use of the integration, DJs will need a subscription to both or either of the streaming services.

SoundCloud offers its Go+ subscription for $9.99 a month, while TIDAL has two tiers of membership: Premium and HiFi at $9.99 and $19.99 a month, respectively. Both platforms also offer 30-day trials.

More details about Serato’s integration with SoundCloud and TIDAL will be announced later.
