KNOWN ISSUE: Apple 'Music' / iTunes integration in Serato DJ Pro 2.3.0 and above on macOS Catalina 10.15 can result in slow library load times

We are currently aware of issues that certain users on macOS 10.15 Catalina are experiencing when using the new Apple 'Music' / iTunes integration with Serato DJ Pro 2.3.0 and above.
It seems that some users with large and/or very complex Apple Music / iTunes libraries are most affected.
These issues were not reproduced during testing, but we are currently investigating reports from users.

As a result of this, we recommend users who have not yet updated to macOS 10.15 Catalina, and rely exclusively or mostly on Apple 'Music' / iTunes integration for their library in Serato DJ Pro - do not update their OS yet.

The most common symptom is a slower than expected load time of the Apple 'Music' library into Serato DJ Pro. For some users it may appear that the library is not loading - so we strongly suggest being patient when waiting for the library import to fully complete.

Another, less common symptom, is that some users are reporting a hang when trying to close Serato DJ Pro. We recommend waiting for the library to full import before closing Serato DJ Pro.
