Theres always a danger of upgrading to a new operating system especially when you use a laptop to DJ with so we’ve rounded up the latest news from all the official sites as to the compatibility with Mac’s El Captain OS X 10.11.  As always we’d recommend doing a full back before you do any upgrades and don’t do it the day before a gig, give yourself enough time to check al the function are working and you are happy before going into a live situation.

SERATO COMPATIBILITY (Correct as of: 15 Sep 2016)

Upgrade to El Capitan Verdict – YES though check the known hardware compatibility issues first.

  • Serato DJ 1.9.2 is supported on OS X El Capitan. You can download the latest version of Serato DJ here. Although Serato software is supported, hardware support for OS X El Capitan is manufacturer specific and some hardware will require the driver to be updated. Please make sure you are running the latest driver and firmware (if available) for your specific hardware.

    If you are still experiencing issues with Serato DJ and your supported device please contact the Serato Support team or contact your hardware manufacturer for more information.
