Serato DJ Library: Select this tab to show your Serato DJ crates in the Crates panel, and your Serato DJ library in the Files panel. Changes made to your Serato DJ library inside Serato Studio, will be reflected in Serato DJ & conversely, changes in Serato DJ software will affect the Serato DJ library loaded in Serato Studio.

NOTE: Your Serato DJ library is enabled by default but can also be turned off. Navigate to Setup --> Library --> Show Serato DJ Library to toggle this.

Projects: Select this tab to show your Serato Studio project crates in the crates panel, and your Serato Studio projects in the Files panel.

Drums: Select this tab to show your Drum crates in the crates panel, and your Drum single shot sounds and kits in the Files panel. There are two pre-made Crates in the crate panel of the Drums tab, allowing you to quickly choose between single-shot samples or entire drum kits.

Audio Samples: Select this tab to show your Audio Sample crates in the crates panel, and your actual Audio Samples in the Files panel. There are two pre-made crates in the crates panel of the Audio Samples tab, allowing you to quickly choose between Sample loops and single-shot Samples.

FX: Select this tab to show several pre-made FX crates in the crates panel, which when selected, determine the built-in Serato FX shown in the Files panel. These can be loaded into one of the 3-FX slots relating to Pads, Decks, or your Master view. For more information, click here.

Instruments: Select this tab to show built-in Serato Instruments, divided up into several pre-made crates. Click on a crate to show the appropriate Instruments in the Files panel.

Files: Select this tab to show various file locations on your computer’s internal and external drives. Click on these locations to navigate your drives and find your music and/or samples. Once you have located your music or samples, drag the folder or files you want to import onto the ‘Serato DJ Library’ or ‘Audio Samples’ tab and then place it in the crate you wish.

You can also move or copy files from your Serato Studio library to other locations on your computer. For more information on this, click here.

NOTE: You can select multiple files or folders by holding ‘command/Cntrl’ on your computer’s keyboard and clicking on the folders or files you wish to select.
