what kind of issues are you having?
dj_soo 5:42 AM - 12 March, 2018
DJ pro has been pretty rock solid for me since the beta. I've had the occasional issue, but I was having plenty with SSL by the time I stopped using it as well.

When's the last time you've rescanned your files? Cleared out corrupt files from the library?
John Calipari 3:14 PM - 12 March, 2018
Me also, SDJP has ran solid for me, no serious complaints.

Been solid for me since beta as well. And I'm a Windows user.

I see so many people on Facebook complaining about how bad the update is. They don't even want to think it could be their machines or library.

Sorry Louie, no one give AF about you and SSL. Go buy a decent computer and fix your library, then come back and apologize.

It's amazing to me that people bitch when their 8-10 year old laptops can't handle the latest software.
The Return of Dj Sparky 8:32 PM - 12 March, 2018
It also amazes me when 8-10 year old software is better then what the company currently puts out
dj_soo 8:34 PM - 12 March, 2018
Subjective - I much prefer playing on sdj to scratchlive.

Haven't opened SSL in years.
DjLouie Jr 12:19 AM - 14 March, 2018
@Aptidda You should think before type bro!!! I have a 2015 Mac book pro15'' 2.8 1TD HD, I also Have A 6 RCT TT25A with 6 Subs Rane 62/CDJ-2000 Combo Sound Rig that i rent out To A lot of Pro Dj's here New York City & Manny of them still use SSL They Lit up in the club, But i bet your just a Bedroom Dj !!!
dj_soo 12:27 AM - 14 March, 2018
Ignore him - he's the resident troll right now.

When's the last time you've cleaned up your library? I initially had a bunch of problems with sdj when I first switched and realized that I basically had a mishmash of files scanned from scratchlive like 1.5 and itch on up. Try giving your library a full rescan and see if that helps.
dj_soo 12:28 AM - 14 March, 2018
I also had to rebuild my database and that helped.

Try renaming your _serato_ folder and moving back your crates and other essential folders and see if that helps.
DjLouie Jr 12:37 AM - 14 March, 2018
I Will Try that, I was playing at The Dugout NYC this Saturday it was running great at the house also at the club then 2 hours into my set it just crash i was scrolling down then it just cut-off i then turn on Scratch Live & played all night with out any issue P.S all my music is from Digiwaxx, franchise record pool or from Apple So Doubt its the music. i never download youtube rips or share Music thanks dj_soo
dj_soo 12:58 AM - 14 March, 2018
Shit gets corrupted sometimes too.

What hardware are you using?
DjLouie Jr 2:00 AM - 14 March, 2018
Rane 62 Z trip / Cdj-2000 in HID Mode
dj_soo 2:12 AM - 14 March, 2018

pdidy 3:08 AM - 14 March, 2018
DjLouie Jr, WHAT mac os ? have you updated mac os recently? if so, was it a wipe then clean install?
Philmixit 10:38 AM - 14 March, 2018
I have scratch live, and I will never say that is is better than Serato DJ PRO, Serato DJ Pro Is by far the better software ever, solid , stable ,and superia for me.
I have no problem at all.
.to Serato team job well done.
DjRoo-1 4:19 PM - 14 March, 2018
Was crashing on me tonight and nothing g to do with music files. Simply turning a deck from thru to relative modes with no track loaded and crash and a top spec 4 year old Macbook Pro which should have no problems running sdjp

I assume you have already created a Ticket# with Support?

Did you remove 1.9.x or install Pro alongside of it?

Did you have any add-ons activated (Video, P-N-T)?

Were you running any other APP in the background?

Is it repeatable? If yes, please report. It will help the Serarto team in their quest to make SDJP more stable.

I have now created a ticket for it as I was on my way home in a cab from my gig when posting here.

1.9 was removed, video not activated, pnt was on and no other apps in the background. I guess wais and see what the guys here reply with
dj_soo 12:46 AM - 15 March, 2018
still haven't mentioned your OS
DjLouie Jr 1:56 AM - 15 March, 2018
I'm on Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 I've been running Serato Dj Pro at my house it has not crashed again, I really want to know why did it crash at the last gig I use the same gear at home as in the club
DjLouie Jr 1:57 AM - 15 March, 2018
Also my Rane 62 & CDJ-2000 are on the latest firmware

Because the program despises you and your petty operation. When you at home there is no stress and nothing riding on your performance.

When you are "out doing super awesome gigs" and "making bank, bro" the vibes in the air communicate with the electric charge of the equipment.

The presence of an electric charge, which can be either positive or negative, produces an electric field. The movement of electric charges is an electric current and produces a magnetic field.

When a charge is placed in a location with a non-zero electric field, a force will act on it. The magnitude of this force is given by Coulomb's law. Thus, if that charge were to move, the electric field would be doing work on the electric charge. Thus we can speak of electric potential at a certain point in space, which is equal to the work done by an external agent in carrying a unit of positive charge from an arbitrarily chosen reference point to that point without any acceleration and is typically measured in volts.

Electricity is at the heart of many modern technologies, and that modern technology is your gear. With all these electric fields from the people in the room you are bound to have issues.

By chance, do you have SMC Fan Control running on your Mac? Why I ask is because I am wondering if heat had a reason to do with the crash.

License Key what for.... choose the right controller and opens the software no license needed.. no internet.... only time internet is need is when you buy a expansion pack or when you first get a serato device.


if you roll to a spot that has cdjs and a djm nexus setup you need a license to unlock the nexus to work

Louie get it RIGHT man! I DJ CARNIVALS! Those are more important than ANY gig you have ever "performed" at. When you got lions, tigers, and elephants and shit riding on your performance you want to keep those mofo's HAPPY. Or else you get trampled children and bystanders. Now BOW DOWN AND HAIL THE 72!

Uninstalled 2.0 and updated to 2.0.1 and no crashing now, still no grid view tho ;)
Mr. Goodkat 8:33 PM - 30 March, 2018
Ive been using pro and went back an forth with SSL and SDJ.

I'm not saying SSL is better, BUT i can say that any of the devices i used with SSL ALWAYS WORKED .

with serato dj and serato pro a Rane 62 or a Pioneer s9 sent my virtual decks spinning backward. SSL worked with the 62.

i know its just anecdotal but still it just sucks knowing that when ever i dj with those mixers, i have to have my sl3 box from 08 or whenever it came out.

Hope is on the way - subscription pricing!
serato.com

They are copying Adobe, and IMHO by V3.0 they will have figured out a way to completely separate the hardware from licensing, without risking license hacking.

I JUST looked at new tracks on there, and they're STILL 192KBPS.

they never updated the text, but the majority of downloads from them are now 320 although there are still a couple lower bitrate ones.
