New operating systems add amazing new features and security to our world but that can often come at the cost of compatibility with our current software and drivers, many of which are vital pieces to a studio or DJ setup. While software and hardware drivers can be updated to account for the changes in a new operating system, this is not always immediate. To prevent any downtime waiting for an update, it's much easier check the compatibility of your gear before making the jump. This article is a list of all macOS High Sierra and iOS 11 compatible Rane DJ hardware, as well as what you'll need to know before updating.
Please be aware, Serato has released a statement requesting users to hold off on upgrading to macOS High Sierra until they can confirm compatibility. If Serato is your main DJ software, please do not update your OS until compatibility is confirmed.
* These products will require an additional firmware that was necessary for the previous update to macOS Sierra 10.12. If you have not completed this update, please follow the instructions here.
All drivers were previously released for support with macOS Sierra. If you have not yet updated to the latest drivers, you can download from the link provided above or follow the instructions below to update through Serato DJ.
Required: All driver supported products on macOS High Sierra will now require the user to allow the system extension in the Security & Privacy System Preferences. After installing the driver, the following pop-up will appear to report that the driver extension has been blocked:
To enable the extension and allow the driver, navigate to System Preferences > Security & Privacy. Restart the computer first if this is necessary to complete the driver installation. Under the General tab, look for the "System software from developer "(driver developer)" was blocked from loading."
Click Allow. Follow the prompts to restart the computer if necessary and the device will be recognized normally on startup. It will only be necessary to complete this process once.
