Offline Mix Tidal Music on Serato DJ Pro (Lite)
You may have this familiar. On your macOS 10.15 Catalina, macOS 11 Big Sur & macOS 12 Monterey, it will take a longer time to initiate the Tidal Music application in Serato DJ Pro & Serato DJ Lite. This is likely due to the streaming music library having not finished rebuilding/indexing your full library yet. Instead of letting things remain in a place you're not happy with, you can turn to another way that you will accept more than you deserve. Serato DJ supports reading audio files outside of Serato. While the imported files aren’t actually saved inside the software but should be offline stored on the computer or the mobile phone. So if you can download Tidal Music to the offline store on the computer, and import the Tidal Music downloads to Serato DJ offline mixing, you won't run into music load or sync issues anymore. Moreover, this way will bring you a chance to organize all music files into a tidy library, thus giving your Serato DJ Tidal Music mixing a breeze.
