DJs now have access to SoundCloud‘s diverse music library through Serato DJ’s software.
“We’re excited to introduce our first DJ performance software integration with Serato, a leader in the Space,” states Kerry Trainor, CEO at SoundCloud, in a blog post. “SoundCloud is committed to empowering creators with the best tools and resources to grow their careers. Today’s launch is the first time DJs can mix and stream SoundCloud’s massive catalog directly in professional-level DJ software.”
With this new integration, SoundCloud Go+ premium consumer subscription users will be able to directly stream SoundCloud’s library utilizing Serato DJ Pro 2.1 or DJ Lite 1.1 software.
In a matter of steps, DJs can add their SoundCloud Go+ premium subscription into the Serato DJ Pro or DJ Lite software. Simple download and log into one of the softwares, enable SoundCloud by logging in through the software, and restart the Serato DJ application to gain access to SoundCloud’s library.
“SoundCloud is such an important platform for music discovery and have long been aligned with the DJ community,” says Nick Maclaren, Chief Strategy Office at Serato. “We’re thrilled to partner with a service that offers such a large and diverse catalog of songs unavailable anywhere else online.”
Additionally, SoundCloud will be adding integrations with software companies like Native Instruments, Virtual DJ, DEX3, Mixvibes, and Hercules in 2019.
