Meet Serato Studio - the ultimate beat maker

Get started using Serato Studio now.

What is Serato Studio?

Serato Studio is intuitive beat making software for DJs and producers. Studio uses DJ elements like Colored Waveforms, Cue Points, and your Serato DJ Library so the software will feel instantly familiar to DJs when they start making music.

Studio also packs advanced production functionality, like Automation, Stem Exporting, and Plug-in support (VST/AU) into a fast, simple interface. All this means less time hitting roadblocks and more time making music.

What’s new in Serato Studio 1.0?

Since the beta launch in March, Serato Studio has seen significant feature enhancements. The release version now includes Master Key Change to transpose your entire project key with one click. It also has Triplets and Swing in the step sequencer to add variation in your drums and Master Deck Waveform to get visual feedback on your track with Serato’s famous colored waveforms.

Other notable new features include Compression FX, Stem Export, Glide for Instruments, 32-Beat Scenes, in-app tutorials, and much much more.

Serato launches Serato Sounds

Studio users can now access Serato Sounds to download fresh sound packs each month, including instruments, drum kits, loops and FX. Serato sound packs include trap, lo-fi, soul, funk and electronic influences from world-renowned sound designers like Decap, Goldbaby, MSXII Sound Design and more.

Not your standard 808 kit

We're excited to launch Serato Sounds artist series with the Just Blaze Pack, free for anyone to download. 

The legendary producer behind Jay-Z, Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar hits delivers a unique collection of sounds mastered using Just Blaze’s own vintage compressors and limiters. From hard-hitting drums and spacey synths, through to vocal chants and classic producer drops.

Speaking on his Serato Studio pack, Just Blaze said “it's not hard to find the standard drum sounds that everybody's using in 2019. So I wanted to really take it a step further and add my personal sonic qualities.”

The Just Blaze pack also includes original samples recorded in the producer’s own home: “I wanted to actually get on the drum kit, smack the sticks around. Bang on different things in my house and pick up different sounds that could be insane to one person, but to somebody else may be one of the best things they've ever heard - or at the very least, perfect for what they need in that moment,” he says.

Download the Just Blaze sound pack for free.

Serato Studio will be available via subscription for a monthly fee of USD 14.99/m, or USD 9.99/m billed annually. Subscribers can cancel any time, after which they can continue using Serato Studio free with Save and Export disabled.
