Serato just announced crucial new updates to Serato DJ Pro and Serato DJ Lite. Now at versions 2.3 and 1.3 respectively, they are now compatible with the latest macOS 10.15 Catalina operating system, along with the new Music app which replaces iTunes. That means your library in the Music app can be accessed seamlessly within Serato without the need to do manual exports from iTunes. Serato Studio, the standalone beatmaking app, is also compatible in macOS 10.15 Catalina.
However, there’s a lot of DJ and music production hardware that are still not compatible with macOS 10.15, so it’s highly recommended that users hold off on updating macOS for now.
As with all operating system updates, it’s always a good idea to wait for both DJ software and hardware manufacturers to give the green light before updating to ensure app / hardware compatibility, and to avoid headaches that will keep you from spinning.
