Anyone else having problems with Djay Pro2 using macOS Catalina? I have a large music library on an external drive. While the new Apple Music application loads this quickly as under Mojave, Djay 2 takes over two hours to find and load the library, it then takes a further 30 minutes to play the first track I select..

Djay pro 2 works fantastic with OS 10.11.6 I know it’s a old OS but look at your system requirements see what it tells you I have no problem what so ever on my Mac with Djay Pro2

I've been using Djay software since its original release. It has served me well & over the last year I have been using Djay Pro 2 with Mojave with no problems. My system is of a high specification well in excess of what is required for Catalina and Djay Pro 2. Much was made in several forms and in the press by Algoriddim that Djay Pro 2 is compatible with Catalina and users libraries would work seamlessly under the new operating system. While the new apple Music programme sees all my libraries, playlists etc and plays them without problem, this is not the case with Djay Pro 2. This is why I'm asking the question. I've provided all the details and system report to Algroriddim for them to look at.

Hi guys,



please note we provided an update which shortens the library loading with Catalina.



Please update your djay Pro 2 version and tell us about the performance.

I have also have this problem using a large external library. I've updated and still having the problem. It's taken an hour and still uploading now. iTunes music takes less than 2 minutes to load the entire library & playlists.

Catalina 10.15.1 update improves things considerably when combined with the Djay Pro 2 update. Large library loading now comparable to performance under Mojave.

So does that mean to update from 1.4.5 I have to pay another $80.00 ?

The update is free, but it hasn't solved the problem for me. Upload time of a large library is impracticable for a gigging DJ.

Hi guys,



as Paul already mentioned, Apple released a new update, Catalina 10.15.1 which improves the library loading significantly.



Please make sure you update to this version and you are good to go.



Thank you for sharing your feedback and happy mixing.
