Back in October, Soundcloud announced that all SoundCloud Go+ subscribers will soon be able to stream SoundCloud's catalog directly into various kinds of DJ software.
Serato DJ has become the first to roll out this revolutionary DJ software integration.
This new assimilation enables creators to stream and mix SoundCloud’s massive catalog of original tracks in high-quality audio using a SoundCloud Go+ premium consumer subscription with Serato DJ Pro 2.1 or DJ Lite 1.1.
This new release is being hailed by many as "a big step forward in streaming workflows for DJs."
For those with the DJ software and a SoundCloud Go+ subscription, users can start incorporating any of SoundCloud’s 190 million track offerings into their mixes by opening up Serato DJ Pro 2.1 or Lite 1.1, enabling SoundCloud within Serato by logging into their account and then restarting the application.
“We’re excited to introduce our first DJ performance software integration with Serato, a leader in the space,” said Kerry Trainor, Chief Executive Officer, SoundCloud. “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.”
SoundCloud Go+ is currently available for $9.99 per month.
