Beatport LINK and Beatsource LINK have seen a surge in popularity as the streaming age continues to evolve. The services allow users to DJ by streaming music directly from each site without the need for downloaded files. Now, famed DJ software marque Serato has added support for both in its latest update beta, Serato DJ Pro 2.4.
Allowing access to Beatport and Beatsource’s extensive 6 million+ song catalogue, the DJ Pro 2.4 beta will give Serato users the ability to stream songs on the fly, creating a multitude options for selecting the perfect tracks in real time. Serato had previously added support for TIDAL and SoundCloud streaming, and the 2.4 update now extends selection options even further.
Also included in the update: the option to “make audio available to other applications,” a godsend to those who have taken to live streaming DJ sets during quarantine. The feature could ease the strain for users struggling to work out how to route direct audio out through applications like OBS and XSplit.
Serato’s DJ Pro 2.4 beta comes after Pioneer DJ‘s Rekordbox software integrated Beatport and Beatsource LINK support last year.
