The last 12 months have seen an explosion of DJs live streaming online to stay connected with their fans and perform in real-time, despite varying lockdown restrictions. With this newfound uptake, a great looking stream, as well as music, is the key to cutting through.

And Serato wouldn’t be Serato without making some DJ booths. These are designed to bring some visual excitement to the stream. From speaker stacks to alien monsters, DJs can have a bit of fun or have a traditional look.
The huge range of DJ Visuals are available for free from Serato’s website. New drops of the visuals will be released every month or so.
