Rekordbox on OSX 10.9 Mavericks

Hey everyone,

I realize that, in the past, Rekordbox has not been supported on major upgrades to operating systems until a version comes out that explicitly states so.  While I have no plans to upgrade Rekordbox until after my series of Halloween gigs (looks like some of you are having some pretty serious problems with the new version), I was wondering if anyone upgraded to OSX 10.9 today, has tried Rekordbox, and can comment on stability of the software and of Pro DJ LINK.  Mavericks has been in the hands of developers for quite some time, but I doubt that the Rekordbox team has put any time in on it (here's hoping they have!).

 

For my fellow OSX users, the upgrade to 10.9 is free as long as you have a supported computer (almost every modern Mac) and run at least Snow Leopard 10.6.7.

 

Just curious.  Thanks in advance.

I installed, so far so good. It seems to take a little longer to close sometimes but most of the time it is very quick. i have not linked yet, I will maybe let that run overnight through a playlist

I used the latest version of RB all weekend on Mavericks and had no issues other then the usual ones that exist with all of the OS versions, so no new issues

I have everything Rekordbox-ready for Halloween, so I'm going to upgrade to Mavericks and 2.2.0 and I'll duplicate BriChi's tests.  Mine will be on CDJ-900s.

I haven't upgraded to Rekordbox v2.2.0 yet, but I did upgrade to Mavericks.  I've played about 14 hours live (three separate gigs; different days) over Pro DJ LINK since the upgrade, and I didn't have any problems.  I'll try 2.2.0 soon.

There's a huge issue with Mavericks, nothing to do with rb, but it's not off topic here: it seems that Mavericks wipes external hard disks, especially the Western Digital ones, but also other brands. So if you have your rekordboxed music on an external drive, you should avoid upgrading.

Here the thread on the Apple forum, but you can also find many articles online: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5475136

Apparently Pioneer is not the only company out there that leaves something to desire when beta testing...
