Here’s What You Need to Know About Serato Support for macOS Catalina

Serato announced today that Serato DJ Pro 2.3, Serato DJ Lite 1.3, and Serato Studio 1.3.1 now support Apple’s latest MAC operating system, macOS Catalina. However, there are a few things to be aware of before upgrading your MacBook or MacBook Pro. Keep reading for more.

Serato DJ Pro 2.3, Serato DJ Lite 1.3, and Serato Studio 1.3.1 are all now supported in macOS Catalina, as well as in Apple’s new Music app, the app that acts as a replacement for iTunes. With the new Apple Music App, DJs can automatically sync their music libraries with no need for manual exporting.

So what’s the downside? For now, DJs should remain cautious about upgrading their operating system because there are many pieces of DJ hardware that currently do not work with macOS Catalina. It’s important for DJs to check the support status of their hardware before updating using the link below:

  1. I think I’ll wait a while before upgrading to Catalina, I don’t want my Mac acting up at events. I also use every effect on my controller and I don’t any problems. It’s fair that Serato decided to take their time with Catalina, being one of the biggest Dj programs out there. Naughty Serato! Very very Naughty
