Tough times always unite the world for good. With the dance music industry harshly impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Serato has offered a purpose to cheer. They have made their DJ software ‘Play’ absolutely free for the month of May – and once you download it, it stays free forever.


Play is a completely user-friendly interface that provides you with the power to DJ utilizing only a laptop. It completely integrates with TIDAL as well as SoundCloud, opening up complete access to innumerable tracks. Advanced features such as EQ, FX and filters are completely unlocked without the hassle of any external hardware controllers or additional interfaces as well. It also includes accessibility to expansions like Flip, Pitch’n’Time DJ, Video and FX. Post-May, the software will resume its normal pricing of $29/month.

Serato’s move comes as a breath of fresh air to many DJs stuck at home, creating a new way to explore without burning a hole in these financially enduring times. It also streamlines an opportunity for new DJs to source their initial mixtapes through TIDAL’s curated playlists or their respective SoundCloud PRO customized lists.
