Known Issues

  • When using CDJ HID mode with El Capitan the CDJ900-Nexus and XDJ-1000 players will not be recognised if they are powered on after connecting to your machine via USB, please power your CDJ units before connecting USB, we are investigating this issue.
  • After updating your machine OS to 10.11 we advise restarting before attempting to use Serato DJ, it is also highly likely you will need to do another restart after installing any 10.11 specific drivers for your hardware (if any)
  • If your CDJ is not detected using El Capitan and HID mode there is a known issue and we are working on it - in the meantime hotplugging your primary device while the CDJs are connected will detect them.
