Don’t upgrade to macOS Sierra (yet)

We’ve been testing Serato DJ across the beta versions of macOS Sierra and should be able to confirm support shortly after the official release.

So please hold off upgrading for now.

If you need any help or have any questions, please contact Serato Support.

macOS Sierra and Scratch Live: As Scratch Live is a legacy product, we don’t recommend updating to macOS Sierra as there may be unknown issues. If you have supported hardware for Serato DJ, we recommend upgrading - download Serato DJ.

Good Advice...but then again,all professionals should know not to upgrade until Serato,Rane,Pioneer etc give the green light.

I've been using Scratch Live with Sierra for a couple of months with and SL1 and Novation Dicers and it works fine.

Hi sajr, hope you don't mind if I ask what version of scratch live you're using. I myself own an sl1 and I haven't used in years cause of personal reasons such as having a broken mixer and never went for repair, and started new family as well. I'm planning to fix my rane 56 and use it with sl1. Still have Yosemite as OS and never bothered to update it El Capitan cause I was told my sl1 won't work with it. What you just said is music for my ears.. Thanks

Yes.. I'm Curious how do you have SL1 working on Sierra. Better Yet.. Does It work form EL Capitan?

Turntables for life.
DJms Strato 2:19 PM - 21 September, 2016
I love playing on turntables and i dare not upgrade to any latest OS until i've been given the 'green light' from DJs using it with Serato DJ, Scratch Live and whatever consoles they used for at least 3 months.

Maybe 1 if it really is a huge improvement from El Crapicrap
balno_1 6:46 PM - 21 September, 2016
Hey, but what does Serato know?! They also said please wait until SL1 is supported on El Capitan. Maybe SL2 will be next, who knows...

i just wish my serato stop freezing when i connect my HD
ItsGMan21 8:51 PM - 22 September, 2016
Looks Like My MacBook Pro has decided to upgrade on its own ..... what do I do now? please tell me its safe now?
soulsides 3:51 PM - 24 September, 2016
I can confirm that ScratchLive works with SL1 and Sierra. You may need to dump the kext file and reinstall ScratchLive 2.5 to make this happen however, using this workaround: serato.com

I had no issues with neither my SL4 asnd SL3, installed Sierra from release date...do not generalize your issues.....i am not saying you have no problems, but its not that it does not work.
djbillgates 2:33 AM - 16 October, 2016
Guys sometimes its not just Serato Dj remember your using a hardware with the serato software go to the Hardware Site and check if there is a Updated Driver for that hardware i've been to a few Clubs with outdated equipments and all i had to do is update their drivers and go ahead and make my money....... come on guys

This is my case, its not a generalization! so would you gamble and update to sierra, when u know it may not work? unless u DJ at home.. (btw, even on the forum/blog, they said not to update, so i guess u r lucky). Posting it on the website is not enough, an email should be sent to warn us...

mon mac s'est mis à jour automatiquement et du coup ma TTM 57 SL à sauter ,et du coup je n'ai pas pu jouer dans les clubs ou c'était prévu ou moment même ou j'ai brancher la table "hardware disconnected " .
Je suis furieux car, au prix des produits je trouve dommage qu'il n'y est plus de suivi pour ce type de table .
De plus j'avais acheter une licence vidéo que je dois maintenant renouveler .
J 'espère vraiment qu'il a moyen de corriger ça ,si quelqu'un a eu le problème et peut m'aider ça sera cool
Merci

Don't know about your Rane 62 but if you go to download it's highlighted there
"macOS Sierra is now supported, but please check hardware compatibility here."
Dillz 3:13 PM - 6 December, 2016
I See persons saying that scratch live works on sierra, but every time i tried to install it on sierra or el capitan it brings up an error something about component..

Please how can i get it installed on Sierra..
ParisCreative 3:16 PM - 6 December, 2016
You are better off downgrading if you can. SSL was last supported on Mt. Lion. I ended up just reverting back to that on a dedicated laptop and I have SDJ+Sierra as my backup laptop.
tao_jonez 2:45 AM - 12 December, 2016
Salutations! Any updates on timing for macOS Sierra support for Rane 64?
Adrian Valdovinos 6:48 AM - 14 December, 2016
Sierra and Rane 62, not "detecting" any ideas what should I do? Running the latest os and race hardware updates available.
DJ NewLife 2:25 AM - 17 December, 2016
Any date on when/if Rane 62 will be compatible with Sierra?

Sierra has worked ok so far using SSL...only one crash when trying to increase my font size.

I just bought the new MBP. I'm guessing that I can just revert back to the old OS. Which is the most solid with Serato DJ?
Soundz Wicked 2:57 PM - 4 January, 2017
Hi All,
Any new when Rane update for Sierra will be release?
Thanks

Max_imus ...... You don't have to have "gigs" in order to spin records or else. If You dj Only for the $ that tells me that you have no clue about this art form. No offense.

I just got a rane tt57sl and it works and the driver is updated it plays fine on my Mac however it doesn't pick up to even look for it but it makes the recognition tone when I pug it in I have Sierra as my os is that the problem? I can have Yosemite installed would that be the proper solution?

So, I got a nasty virus from downloading a shit file- I had to upgrade to Sierra to remedy. I've had zero issues playing since with CDJS but I played on Technics tonight and had some tempo issues. Everything was in the right key but playing hella fast! Like an 88 bmp track would play at 100 bpms- anyone else experience this? Also my computer (MacBook Air 2012) kept selecting all (highliting the whole screen, while nothing was being touched) anyone know what the blank this shit is?
