Serato DJ 1.8.1 Is Out Now

Serato DJ 1.8.1 is now available

Serato DJ 1.8.1 is a maintenance update with a range of important bug fixes for all users, as well as support for some device specific drivers for Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan. 

Download and update to Serato DJ 1.8.1

Read the full list of changes below:

Bug Fixes

  • In HID mode the CDJ cue buttons can jump to incorrect cue point markers
  • With Pitch N' Time engaged performing a cue point can cause audio artefacts
  • Record timer fault after recording reaches 100 mins
  • Multi channel AIFF files causing crash when loaded to deck
  • Tracks flagged as corrupt can stop deck playback in autoplay
  • MIDI initialisation not working for some controls on OSA devices
  • Full Screen mode in El Capitan not working correctly
  • Half/double BPM edit causing hang
  • Potential hang on library import
  • Dragging and dropping outside of SDJ not working correctly
  • Unable to scroll and organise crate lists correctly
  • Album art is not displaying on supported CDJs
  • Hang on startup for some users
  • Recording meter showing max volume at all times
  • On instant double waveforms are not displaying correctly on some controller screens
  • GUI popups not layering correctly causing visual artefacts
  • GUI stalls when rescanning ID3 tags
  • Analyse files button does not light up when tracks are dragged over the top of it
  • Song time text position incorrect
  • Potential hang when using censor actions during Flip playback
  • Selecting track with unloaded album art can cause all CDJ HID album art to not display
  • Slicer status bar message for beatgrid displaying even when slicer is not enabled
  • Dock Icon bouncing on OSX during startup of SDJ
  • Autoplay stops playback after it skips a missing file
  • Potential crash when editing beatgrids
  • Scope view alignment issues when using SDJ in French and Spanish languages
  • Track info disappears in History Panel after track is removed from the library
  • Translation alignment issues

Other Changes

  • A range of performance, graphical and memory optimisations
  • Fixes for potential crashes, hangs and memory leaks
  • Bundled the El Capitan specific drivers for the Pioneer DJM 850, DJM 900 Nexus, DJM 900 SRT, DDJ-SZ and DJM S9 drivers into Serato DJ

Known Issues

  • When using CDJ HID mode with OSX 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.
  • With Pitch N' Time engaged performing a cue point can cause audio artefacts in certain situations, we are working on this issue and hope to have a fix in a build soon.
  • After updating your machine OS to 10.11 we advise restarting it 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 your hardware requires it)
  • 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.

Device Specific El Capitan Drivers

We have bundled the Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11 specific drivers for the Pioneer DJM-850, DJM-900NXS, DJM-900SRT and DJM-S9 into Serato DJ as well as the already bundled DDJ-SZ driver.

Note: If you use these devices on an older OS please remain on your current driver.

Please check with your hardware manufacturer for the current state of your specific hardware device against OSX 10.11 El Capitan. Some hardware will have no issues and work fine whereas some may not be ready for use on El capitan yet - it is important you check this!

Let us know if you have any other questions :)

Hey Dj Owe,

There's no news around remapping for Official Serato Accessories at this stage. We are working on that for a future update though.

Cheers,

What do you mean?

Serato DJ has supported the Rane SL3 hardware for some time.

Wohoo! Great updates/fixes but I didn't see the "maximum screen updates" fix: in 1.8.0 it appears that the GUI does not run at 60 fps refresh rate but at something like ~30...

Just click the analyse files button again to stop the process.

No, there's no driver updates for Scratch Live as it's a discontinued platform.

This has been removed due to user feedback and research. There's no plans to bring this back i'm afraid.

Yes :) That hardware doesn't require drivers so will be fine as we now support OS X El Capitan in Serato DJ.

Very frustrated to hear that you will not be bringing back the tempo matching display, despite numerous busy threads on your own website forums asking for it, and Serato moderators acknowledging the groundswell of support for bringing back this feature.

I am running 1.7.8 Serato DJ, as it is the last version of the software to use this feature, and it looks like i'll not have the option to upgrade at all. Many users are in the same boat.

Is it really so hard to put a tick box in the settings to enable it again?
John Cutter 12:36 AM - 3 December, 2015
Agreed. Please re-evaluate this. It has been a feature of Serato DJ (and previously Scratch Live) that many users came to rely upon.

DeclanOConnell 12:51 AM - 3 December, 2015
So I use a Pioneer DDJ SZ Controller occasionally. As we all probably know it doesn't work if you have updated your software to OS X El Capitan. Will this update now let Serato DJ work on my controller if I update to El Capitan? Or is that something that Pioneer needs to update for the controller itself?

According to Serato, the Tempo Matching Display has been removed "due to user feedback and research. There's no plans to bring this back i'm afraid."

There is clear evidence on this thread alone that there are active users of the interface who are missing this function.

So since the tempo matching display was removed and despite all the numerous rants on the beta 1.8.0 forums for it to be brought back, and after how apparently receiving "user feedback" they have decided to get rid of it for good, I have decided to downgrade my serato DJ to use with my ddjsz. Is there any way to download the 1.7 revisions at least?

My MacBook Pro updated automatically to 10.11 With my Pioneer DDJ SZ..... I found this out the night at my club. When I connected my dj sz Serato shut down completely and wouldn't respond..... it played fine in the offline player..... Luckely there was a few more djs there with me that night so I plugged my HD in a computer and used it...... I had to wipe my mac book DH clean and reinstalled Mav. From the App Store ...... This took me with all the help from customer service about 4 total days ...... Now am backed up on time machine and am going to take the plunge with 10.11 again with the new 1.8.1, and the patch that pioneer came out with for my sz.....

Hello, is El Capitán supported on Pioneer ddj-s1?

Also, I am on Yosemite and all works well, however, when I import my songs to Serato folders and select all to analyze, even though I imported, say 10 songs, it shows "analyzing (as an example) 182 out of 300".

What is going on with that?

It does not affect anything and my imported songs are there.

This did not happen with Itch 2.2.2.

Thanks.

I don't know if I'm alone here but after El Capitan (over 2 months old) was released serato still has not developed a fix to make any of the SL sound cards stable? What kind of development department do they have running over there? I'm mean think about this.... New MacBook Pro running El Capitan, new SL4 (or even SL3) sound card, latest and greatest Serato DJ software and what do you have? I pile of junk that can't play a track! Sad, very sad. So what is your option? Downgrade your OS to Yosemite. As far as Serato blaming Rane for not having new drivers or Rane saying serato is not releasing a fix.... Blame game is over. Companies with the money get a fix out. Tired of people putting out good money to hear excuses. Get it together already.

When adding new crates, to an already made library full of crates that are labeled according to genre, i cannot got the crate to scroll up the list or down the list. It is stuck at the bottom of the list. I am using a DDJ-SX2 on Win 7 Pro (PC). I didn't have this problem until I upgraded to the beta version. Anybody else having this problem? If so, have you found a remedy?

Let me get this straight, you all came here to complain because you rushed to upgrade your system to the "next best thing" instead of waiting for the developers to release a stable version of Serato that has been properly tested on the new OS?

Right.

News flash, this doesn't fall on Serato/Rane/Pioneer or anyone else for that matter. These companies are generally getting their hands on the OS at the SAME time we are as end users. So for us to expect them to have a fully functional and stable release of their product with weeks (hell even a few months) of El Crapitan rolling out is just dumb.

You're responsible for managing the equipment you operate on. EVERY company release several notices telling you not to upgrade and you all did it anyway. Now you are sitting in a beta release forum bitching at Serato for it?

GTFO, stop bitching and let them work on getting us a release out that will be compatible.

Serato, Moderator
Samuel S 7:50 PM - 3 December, 2015
Hey guys,

Here are some answers to the last stream of questions above.

Hardware Support

Serato DJ does support Mac OS X El Capitan but some devices such as the Rane interfaces and mixers require driver updates in order to be fully compatible as there are some issues with the way these interact with how Mac OS X now operates after the update.

This will need to come from the hardware manufacturers and hopefully will be soon :)

Bugs

Please check the release notes above to see if any issues you're referring to have been fixed already. If not, give the beta a try and if the issue persists, we'd recommend reporting in the beta area so our team can log this or give it another +1 to be fixed.

Waveforms

For some users, the changes we made to our GUI technology in the last update made things a little worse. We've made optimisations in this update and will continue to do so in further updates. If you are having any issues that seem weird, i'd contact support and we can help you out - support.serato.com

TTM-57SL / SL1 Support

This has been widely documented over the last couple of years but unfortunately these are discontinued as they are build using old technology that is not up to the standard or capability required for support in software now. Unfortunately these will only be supported in Scratch Live.

hello any word on the audio sound of serato dj because it skips and make stutter noise when the music is running...


I have the same issue as this. I upgraded to El Capitan, since I read it is supported now, last Thursday and practiced without flaws until a set on Saturday where it f@cked my whole world up. Any links to a forum about this?

It was dropping audio and coming back in time as if the track was still playing and periodically distorting both channels temporarily (roughly 10 seconds at a time). Extremely frustrating during a set.

I have a mid 2014 MacBook 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 and I'm using a Rane 62 (is this compatible with EL Capitan?) with turntables and an Akai MPD 32. Any thoughts?

Right.

News flash, this doesn't fall on Serato/Rane/Pioneer or anyone else for that matter. These companies are generally getting their hands on the OS at the SAME time we are as end users. So for us to expect them to have a fully functional and stable release of their product with weeks (hell even a few months) of El Crapitan rolling out is just dumb.

You're responsible for managing the equipment you operate on. EVERY company release several notices telling you not to upgrade and you all did it anyway. Now you are sitting in a beta release forum bitching at Serato for it?

GTFO, stop bitching and let them work on getting us a release out that will be compatible.

Awesome, thank you! I'll wait until rane updates its firmware.

This is what i was actually looking for on a serato forum, an educated response from a serato tech or someone who had the same issue and a solution or experience they had instead of some schmuck blaming people for bitching.

It's important to do your research before making major purchases, but SDJ 1.8.1 will support El Capitan when it and the hardware drivers are officially released soon.

if you bought a new macbook with OS X El Capitan just downgrade to Yosemite.

if you already upgrade, you must clean install it.
but don't forget to backup your serato data.
after that, bring it back to previous folder.
no need to analyze again :)

I'm running El Capitan with my DDJ-SZ and updated my firmware and drivers.

When I install Pioneers El Capitan drivers, Serato doesn't recognize the driver and says I need to install the driver from within Serato. When I do that... Its not compatible and I run into the known issues.

Seems like other people have got Pioneers drivers to work somehow... am I missing something?

Try starting fresh - remove your SZ drivers from Macintosh HD/System/Library/Extensions, then use SDJ to install the drivers you need. Hope that helps.

Not a viable option. Serato DJ and the hardware drivers needs to be compatible with the newest OS. People who buy new laptops with El Capitan wouldn't be able to use SDJ otherwise.

i have the SZ also and ran into that same issue last Month. I just upgrade back to El Capitan....... Make sure your running the new El Capitan 1.11.1 and then go to pioneer website and download the path firmware for the SZ ..... The new path is 1.20.... I also downloaded the new serato dj witch also have the bug fixes for the compatibility with the new OS, SZ, and Serato..... This is the beta version but it works fine for me ...... you have to have all these three download for it to work.... Serato 1.8.1.... good luck
DJ Johnny Bertone 6:17 PM - 9 December, 2015
Tempo Matching Display should be an option. so many people use it and it's not fair to remove it and whoever uses it is now stuck with 1.7.8 and OS X Yosemite. i would like to upgrade my computer to the latest OS X and the latest Serato DJ to take advantage of the stability and added tools and features in the coming future releases, but its just not fair to someone who spent over $3,000 in equipment to use specifically with your software(between 2 controllers), and now tat you're dropping features that i personally like and frequently use, I'm left with a $1,500 piece of metal stuck in 2014. Keep to your word and actually take in the "user feedback" from the people actually using your equipment and software making a living for themselves, and possibly a family, and AT LEAST give us the option to enable or even disable these features.
for example, what users asked for "AM Mode" or whatever that is? why add useless features like that but take away heavily utilized features? just think that when people spend money to use your software, while taking their money you should also take into consideration their feedback.
DJ Johnny Bertone 6:20 PM - 9 December, 2015
for the small pocket of "Old school dis" That don't even use it, let them disable it. if you're so "Oldschool" go back to real vinyls. just because you can beat match by ear doesn't mean you DONT need the tempo match. i can also beat match by ear. more than likely better than 90% of the guys that wanted that feature removed. it doesn't mean i don't use the feature to make my life easier.
dj silent assassin 6:45 PM - 9 December, 2015
The reason why these controllers are invented was to make dj's life more easier both with the amount of equipment you have to lug around and also the portability and user friendly....... Before I started taking dj on the professional side, I was mixing with turn tables from age 12 in Jamaica with tube amps and a rotary mixer know head phones, so you had to turn up the top end to hear the hi hats are other part of the songs that is most similar with the present one so as to give a clean and timing mix.... So I don't even need this tempo matching, but its already being used and many dj's younger, older, bigger, experience, and some with more experience still uses this feature, I don't think it is good to remove it completely...... What you (Serato dj) should do is give and option in the setup screen to checked or uncheck for this feature..... Hope you will adhere to our plea
DJ Johnny Bertone 6:48 PM - 9 December, 2015
I agree ^
Joe Moore 9:09 PM - 9 December, 2015

Recently I uploaded the 1.8.1 Beta because I was experiencing Audio drop out with 1.8 after updating to OS El Capitan.

I'm using Serato Dj whit the Rane SL3 box,
but for some reason i continue to have the same problem with the beta update, the audio drop has gotten worse. I have turned off the Pitch n' time, set the USB buffer size to 20 and followed the optimization tips to fix the problem, but the audio dropout and distortion continues.

Im open ears for any suggestion to help with the problem.
Joe Moore 2:29 AM - 11 December, 2015
Rane hardware is not yet compatible with El Capitan.
We're waiting for Rane to release updated drivers so that the SL boxes and the Rane mixers will work properly with El Capitan.
If you can, I recommend rolling back to Yosemite until your hardware is officially supported. There are multiple threads in the forum outlining how to do this.
Best of luck.

dj zaza 4:46 PM - 14 December, 2015
I hate to say it, but since serato began to support other hardware manufacturers, began the real problems with SSL problems there were, but they were only taken from products Rane. no wonder ssl despite no longer supported giving less problems. I hope that the developers find the right way to have a stable software.

This is because Rane has not yet released updated drivers.

When will we be able to change colours on midi controller like the novation launchpad. I could change the colour from yellow to red or green. But since 1.7.7 that wasn't possible, can we please add this function again!!! Thanks

Come on quite a few people have asked about the NS6 and Serato and Numark have not replied at all
You do know there are other product makers apart from Pioneer dont you.
I know its not your fault that Apple decided to run an update that then broke most things but come on I had to did to make sure the latest 1.8.1 was or was not supporting the Numark NS6 in the driver bundle included.
NOTE:- if your wondering people nope the NS6 is not yet supported with El Capitan.
I have emailed Numark support a few times but not even a reply to acknowledge the problem.
not expecting a reply to this either but it makes me feel better to vent every few weeks, probably best not to update anyway gives you all a good chance to fully BETA test the bugs out of the 1.8.xxx releases

I'm surprised nearly noone mentioned anything about the low screen refresh rate, which must be ~30 screen updates per second!
dj zaza 8:40 AM - 15 December, 2015
I believe that the work to support all the hardware is the main priority of Serato, but honestly I do not understand why pull out a beta, solve problems GUI or anything, but the drivers? and maverick that there are problems with the audio drivers, continuous drop out. I really hope it resolves the situation. as I wrote a few posts above, SSL with osx el capitan is a bomb.

There is no feedback that was provided since I have researched, of any one majority saying to get rid of it. So, where was this done? How was it conducted? This is a lot of BS that you are shoving us. What goes around, comes around!!

Ok every one i was on the phone wit numark and i asked them about the drivers for the DJ's that use the NS7 and i was told that the drivers are 10-11-10-10 might work but they are not 100% in it because they say the the people that make the drivers are working on it

Now if anyone has updated the make an is useing old drivers plz let me and other people kno how u got it to work because we as DJ's are losing out on money

Correct. While Serato DJ 1.8.1 is compatible with OS X El Capitan, Rane hardware including the Sixty-Four are not yet ready for El Capitan.

We're waiting for Rane to release updated drivers so their hardware will work properly with El Capitan. Fingers crossed that those updated drivers are released soon.

So if you are using Rane hardware (SL 2, SL 3, SL 4, Sixty-Two, Sixty-Four, etc.) and Serato DJ, I recommend holding off from upgrading to OS X El Capitan until we get the green light from Rane and Serato.

Guess all that had updated their OS to El Capitan was a wrong move as of date, im still rocking Maverick and no problems with Serato Dj 1.8.0, Guess i wont upgrade at all until im 100% sure bugs are worked out. Also i heard that the new version of Serato Dj 1.8.1 does not support Numark V7 or The NS7 if this is true im sticking with Maverick and Serato Dj 1.8.0 just saying. IF IT AINT BROKE WHY TRY TO FIX IT. (I'LL WAIT!!).

The latest news is that Rane is working with Apple to deliver updated drivers for their hardware that will be compatible with OS X El Capitan.

According to Rane's tweets, they've sent a mixer to Apple and are waiting for them to fix the issues with their OS - twitter.com

Rane has also given instructions on how to partition your hard drive to install OS X Yosemite so that you can use Serato DJ on a stable system - facebook.com

DiscoBlake 9:34 PM - 1 January, 2016
Hey guys, important tidbit from a long time v7-ns72 user. The more serato advances their software, (which even though i'm on the outs with EL CAP and 1.8.1 atm with the ns72, i commend serato for all the hard work, getting rid of itch, listening and responding constantly to forums, and adding features like P&T and keylock etc..), the more raw computing power you need. Ram, hard drive speed/space, processing, etc.

*Do Not Update before major gigs, no matter how appealing it may seem!!!!* (learned the hard way :/ )

For instance my mid-2010 Macbook Pro 15" is finally starting to show it's age. I upgraded from the original 4gig ram to 8, and it helped, but it is not enough anymore. SPECS and keeping your computer optimized is imperative.

There are so many different things that can cause SO MANY different problems that might not seem related. With everyone on different systems with wildly different specs, and wildly different hardware/software, it is very difficult to fix everyone all at once. They cannot fix problems they don't know about. They are listening, and working like crazy to help everyone. Which, serato, thanks for you guys hardwork.

Number one rule for any Serato user: keep at least 100 gigs free on the main HD as the software needs some elbow room. This can/will cause all kinda problems. Research your computer and hardware. Learn everything you can about optimization.

***The main reason I knew El Cap was gonna be an issue is because it is trying to create a seamless experience across multiple devices. The introduction of freaking icloud has been a huge pain in my &^%$%$% a$$, as it is trying to communicate with all your tablets, phones, computers, laptops, and is constantly using desperately needed resources we dj's can ill afford. (hence me being forced into basically having to buy a new laptop when i shouldn't have to)***
****EL CAPITAN was NOT created with us in mind. It is a dj software, hardware, and 3rd party manufacturer's nightmare.***
I am desperate for the fixes in 1.8.1, DESPERATE, but i get it.
Serato DJ is an amazing program, and I know we are all precious snowflakes that drops the baddest beats in the land, but learn what COULD cause problems before you have a problem that can cost loss of income, and more importantly, reputation. (one small instance, jesus this cost me days and $$$, but one instance is something simple as your usb cables. They can easily get pinched or damaged without your knowledge, which can cause HUGE problems, and this is one tiny thing.)
Serato isn't the problem, El capitan is. Apple really went from the hottest girl in school, to the raunchiest girl on the corner. And every major update to their OS is hell on ALL of us.
Thanks for listening, as I have been troubleshooting for a lonnng time being a former V7 and itch user, we had it the worst out of anyone, with the best hardware. go figure.
Happy New Year my fellow dj's and Serato, sorry to get slightly off topic, but please... This is way more Apple's fault. May You All slay every gig, and your beats be funky and flawless!
DiscoBlake 7:28 PM - 2 January, 2016
i posted this a bit soon, the new update DOES support the ns7II+. Make sure you get the correct driver/firmware updates from numark. The v7's, and original ns7 do not (yet?) feature el cap support by numark or 1.8.1 update by serato. I am so far very pleased to find out both serato and the el Cap OS update hog less memory. a plus for my aging laptop.

I had this problem with the sz and what I did to fix it was go into speaker settings and make the controller the default speaker it worked. ever since then i've had no problems, I searched on youtube for videos for the problem and got one.

snarf,
the v7's are not supported through 1.8.1 as of this posting. the old ns7 and the v7's are not supported as of yet by serato 1.8.1

you will need to download the latest drivers from numark's website however, it is a necessity after the new update.
Snarf 9:01 PM - 11 January, 2016
Thx Blake. I found this out the hard way. I guess now I just wait until they do support them? It's frustrating, as Serato does list the V7's as compatible equipment on one area of the website ( serato.com ). I will see if I get any support from Numark, like you suggested

Hey Serato,

In the future can you please not use a misleading title like "Serato DJ 1.8.1 now supported on OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan".

I'm sure I'm not the only user that read that title and downloaded El Capitan afterwards, only to discover that it doesn't work with DVS SL boxes. It's pretty annoying.

Thanks

Only looks like they are still working. Last time they talk about Apple problems. Apple didn't good a New El Capitan. But they said its only at second part of december, what did they do before? 3 month they can't update drivers.

I think they do their job very bad.

sorry for mistakes
DJ Tecniq 11:20 AM - 17 January, 2016
So i'll prob be on Yosemite till next christmas since there's no driver support yet...Shitty I should just sell it and get the S9 since it's supported in El Capitan. Hopefully we can get an update and yeah the fact you mention it's supported in SDJ latest version is very misleading cause it's supported for only half hardware devices. You just caused the support team to work even harder. IMO

Hallo guys.
Have you a GOOD news about SL4 compatibility???
I'haven't understood if the OS X 10.11.4 can fix all its issues.
If "yes", how can I upgrade my El Capitan to "El Capitan OS X 10.11.4"? By upgrading from Apples website?
I've read theese word: "Please note: El Capitan 10.11.4 is currently not released to the public yet. It is only the first beta build. Apple typically has 2 or 3 beta builds before a version is released to the public. If you are an Apple Developer, you can download and try out the latest beta here: beta.apple.com....

What's happened?

Hallo guys.
Have you a GOOD news about SL4 compatibility???
I'haven't understood if the OS X 10.11.4 can fix all its issues.
If "yes", how can I upgrade my El Capitan to "El Capitan OS X 10.11.4"? By upgrading from Apples website?
I've read theese word: "Please note: El Capitan 10.11.4 is currently not released to the public yet. It is only the first beta build. Apple typically has 2 or 3 beta builds before a version is released to the public. If you are an Apple Developer, you can download and try out the latest beta here: beta.apple.com....

What's happened?


Has nobody some words to tell me???????????? :(
How long have this bad situation to go ahead????????????
I'm really bored....... and nervous....
Mac (3.649 Euro) + SL4 (996 Euro) have still stopped from 5 months!
Where's this notorious timeliness???

I'm in exactly the same boat. Every time I look into down grading from EC I read a good percentage of comments saying how it didn't work or caused more problems.
I thought I could wait it out but the wait is stretching into ridiculous now.

I saw somewhere that 1.9 beta is out??? Can't find it.
I would like to test it!!!

Good morning, the continuous time to use with Serato to Yosemite, but I wonder, but how long it takes to get the firmware that settle this problem with Rane products. In a little more than four months will be released a new version of OSX. I hope that Serato and apple create drivers that do not give more problems with future system updates, because those who buy a Macbook today and does not have the possibility to install a osx older, I do not know how happy I am to have invested his money. Serato put pressure on Apple, or that developers create proprietary drivers that have nothing to do with the core audio, so at least we should not wait for thanks from Apple.
Maximilian da Funkmaster 12:43 PM - 24 February, 2016
I'm beginning to think that maybe ... Rane has no interest in updating the firmware of their soundcards (SLX = SL2, SL3, SL4 ....). I firmly believe that we do not want so many months to update the firmware solamentre. At this point to say so! If it were really so, I will ask for a refund! I spent 965 Euros for a non-working board of an operating system that continue to sell!
So either Apple guarantees the possibility to downgrade to YOSEMITE (right now its products are sold already with EL CAPIOTAN !!!! NOT you can do any downgrade !!!), or FROGS stops selling incompatible products. So they deceive customers that the products sold are working together.
DJ Quartz 1:04 PM - 24 February, 2016
Have you installed the latest El Capitan beta as suggested in other threads?
DJ Quartz 1:05 PM - 24 February, 2016
See Rane's bulletin here, dj.rane.com
Joe Moore 9:47 PM - 24 February, 2016
Rane has explained in detail why this problem is happening and why it has been taking so long to get it resolved - dj.rane.com

Serato also warned everyone, as they do every time a new OS is released, not to upgrade until they and their hardware partners can confirm compatibility.

In the meantime you can downgrade your OS or install Yosemite/Mavericks on a new partition. There are other threads and videos that explain how to do this.

I'm anxious to see if El Capitan 10.11.4 will resolve the Core Audio issues, I've heard some promising things from beta testers.

if you had no issues with Yosemite why are people updating to capitan? don't do it and if you did go to apple and have them put it back and stop updating.

I called 10 minutes ago to the Apple customer service. They very kindly told me that if I bought a latest generation Macbook Pro, where the El Capitan operating system is already installed, I can not install the previous operating system. This means I can not install Yosemite!
How can I do now?
I have a new Mac! I have a SL4 new tab! But I can not play!
RANE? When you update these firmeware ??????
I'm tired of waiting! We are all tired of waiting!
It 'a paradoxical situation!
There are people like me who has bought equipment for thousands of euro (dollars) ... but can not use it!
I understand the difficulties (dj.rane.com) but it's been months and months !!!!
We have to ask for a refund? If you can ... Please let us know!!!.
Thank you

And what options we have?
Don't use this laptop, get your old. but what about people who selling their old laptops and buying new? not everyone can afford that.
Another option - make partition. pff never!

And please, stop saying same words all the time like:
"we sorry, we agree and blah blah"
Just do something!

Imagine instead of saying "we're sorry we agree" they just come out with something like "sucks to suck buddy"

Completely agreed.

As you can see here dj.rane.com, Rane came up with drivers for most devices, except for the SL4 :D

If you really can't wait anymore, there are beta drivers available for the Rane SL2/SL3/SL4 -
support.serato.com

I wouldn't recommend using at a gig, as beta drivers should be treated as unstable.
That being said, I've read that users are having positive results with them.
