MIDI out of Serato

Garrett V. 1:08 AM - 11 July, 2010
I have a Denon X1600, and in MIDI, software can control the indicators in response to user input. Is there a way MIDI out of Serato could be implemented so that I can see my buttons and see what they are doing without looking at the screen?
AKIEM 10:07 PM - 13 July, 2010
This can be done with VSL and a QTZ file. QTZ can be used to send midi out of SSL.
Garrett V. 12:27 AM - 14 July, 2010
Are there any indstructions on how to compose a QTZ file? It doesn't have to do much. Just sending a midi command would be enough for me. I just want my buttons to be visible.

radikarl 11:13 AM - 27 August, 2010
unfortunately i have to disagree with akiem

it is possible to send midi to VSL directly with a quartz composition using OSC.
so you can bypass SSL or even control it at the same time with some visual stuff if configured right with a quartz composition.
www.serato.com

but as far as i know there is no midi out from scratch live.

what akiem refers to, is a quartz compositon that works the other way than in the mentioned thread.
so you what you can do is:
you can send information via OSC out of VSL to a quartz file which then can translate it to midi or do whatever with it
its pretty much the same as in the mentioned thread, just the other way round, i tried it some time and it works.
that way you can send some information to softare like ARKAOS ant the like.

but you only can send those informations that are available in SSL
they are listed in the pdf in this file: serato.com

that is another reason why:

we need more data points.

i think what you want might be explained in a konix video.
search the forum for "midi pipe" or Traktor kontrol X1
but i can't promise you that this works for your device.
radikarl 11:17 AM - 27 August, 2010
ok now i understand what you want...
you have to do it the other way around:
if you hit a button, it should turn the light on by itself. that has to be possible in some way for your hardware.
then, just make sure you configure the control in SSL to relative (binary offset) mode (with the C key while mapping in midi map mode)
and to use the newest beta (21111) since there was a bug in earlier versions.
still, the konix video will help you.
AKIEM 11:36 AM - 27 August, 2010
radikarl is correct.

I went to far in trying to publicize the greatness of QTZ.
(we need more data points)

sorry bout that
Garrett V. 2:05 AM - 31 August, 2010
Is there an app for OSX that can generate a constant MIDI signal? I just need my lights to show up, they don't need to respond to anything. With the new Hybrid MIDI FW update coming out for the Denon 3700's, I'm going to be left in the dark, and I at least want to see where my buttons and knobs are.
radikarl 8:19 AM - 3 September, 2010
www.djtechtools.com
this is why we need midi out.
it's just not fair.
when i saw this i was like "i'm not gonna buy the dicer if i can't fully remap it in SL"
BERTO 12:39 AM - 6 September, 2010
so with midi out we could keep akai lpd8 pads lit all the time?
radikarl 7:09 AM - 6 September, 2010
i don't know enough about the lpd-8 but my guess is yes.

right now, you should try the app called midi pipe and watch the konix videos where he explains on how to use the Traktor Kontrol X1 Lights.
that gives you at least to some point what you want.

The idea behind this is, if there comes no midi out of serato, then put something (midi pipe) inbetween your controller and scratchlive, and make this something behave as you would scratchlive expect to do. on the controller end, it receives midi data, but it also sends data to turn the lights on.
on the scratchlive end, it just forwards what it receives from the controller. this of course needs some additional configuration. and it stops working well for toggled lights if you change something with your mouse or a keystroke in scratchlive, since midi pipe can't know about the change then and the behaviour would therefore be reversed to what you want until you change it again with something other than the controller.
so you have to "sync" the controller to the gui and keep it synced.

now i have a question to someone who owns a pair of Dicers
if you are on the loop page, and turn an autoLoop on with another controller or with "alt+1" - will the light on the dicer turn on?

soularus 8:14 AM - 5 October, 2010
+1 for MIDI out. I use a Launchpad to trigger clips in The Bridge. I have the "user" page on the LP devoted to SSL cue points. If I could get these to light up when a Cue point was active (and to show other cue point status) it would be excellent.

Perhaps they don't allow it because if they did, it would decrease the value in dedicated control surfaces, and discourage hardware manufacturers from developing them specifically for SSL?

I just mapped my Launchpad with Katapult and it works fantastic for me. I´m just missing an update of my LEDs when things are turned on in SSL :-( please give us midi-out.

did anybody of you work with bome miditranslator? could there be a possibility to program the LED status of the Launchpad with this program, since Novation released the programmer guide?

N.Dee. Rick 12:35 PM - 13 October, 2011
Hi,
i solved the problem with my Launchpad with a workaround, with katapult and bome midi translator. now my pad shows the aktivated button. When I enter a 16 beat loop for example and the press another button to loop 8 beats and 4 beats and so on...the hit botton lights always up, while the others don´t. Its still a wordaround but and the Launchpad receives no feedback from serato, but it works great for me.
N.Dee. Rick 12:37 PM - 13 October, 2011
... button lights up and stays on till I hit the next or deactivate it

If you know how to modify your midi .xml files manually, you can try using the following MIDI command to map your delete cue buttons...

This example is for deleting CUE 1 on Deck A (the "#" refers to whatever midi channel/notes you are mapping the delete button to).

< Control name="Delete Cue Point Button A0" channel="#" event_type="Note On" control="#" />

The commands for the other buttons are as follows...

Deck A:
CUE 2: Control name="Delete Cue Point Button A1"
CUE 3: Control name="Delete Cue Point Button A2"
CUE 4: Control name="Delete Cue Point Button A3"
CUE 5: Control name="Delete Cue Point Button A4"

Deck B:
CUE 1: Control name="Delete Cue Point Button B0"
CUE 2: Control name="Delete Cue Point Button B1"
CUE 3: Control name="Delete Cue Point Button B2"
CUE 4: Control name="Delete Cue Point Button B3"
CUE 5: Control name="Delete Cue Point Button B4"

This is the method I used to map the Clear Cue buttons on my Denon DN-S3700's. I have no method of getting LED output to work as yet (waiting to see what info Serato is going to provide when they release their .xml file with LED output support for the upcoming Denon SC3900), but I hope this helps your other issue... since the kind people at Serato HQ won't.

Because the dicers are natively supported by serato, which means they actually use HID control not MIDI when being used with serato. Same thing with CDJ2000's.

Not really much to know. Its the same kind of control as a keyboard or mouse uses. Nothing that will help you in anyway unless you wanna program like hell. HID on the CDJ 2000 and Dicers contains midi signal. But also has propitiatory information for controlling the lights display and such.

Can't we just get a answer to if and when midi out is coming??? @g-rod If you want to light your k2 up just map it in traktor and set what ever leds you want on. Then just start an close traktor before you open ssl an the LEDs stay on. It's a pain but at least you can light it up as you want.

Or just open SSL make a Screenshot than open Traktor than deinstall ssl and open the image. Start djing with traktor and everytime a "serato sheriff" checks your software just show him the serato screenshot... ;)

^^^ no I really don't like traktors GUI also there support is poor. Serato just need to realise its not 1990 anymore. People are using midi controllers. Most the house Djs I watch use midi controllers an more an more commercial Djs are. Yet serato don't offer ssl and decent midi support

Check out the manual "LED data reception" starting on page 15. www.dm-pro.eu MIDI out into the 4500 triggers the lights to go on, off and flash. Even most of the display.

While using MIDI-OX, I'm able to turn on all the LED's plus some of the display.

Lite ‘em Up! software only uses MIDI out, and it turns most of the 3700 lights on. skunkiebutt.com

Which is also incorrect. SSL cannot use HID to tell a LED light to go on that only responds to MIDI. Serato uses MIDI out for the supported controllers. HID is usually for the complicated displays, not simple button back lighting.

nothing to loose. But lots to program lots of changes to make make to add it.

So from there stand point; do we go though the effort to add this feature as a small update and chance fucking it up and deal with all the flak for not having it perfect (which, they will never ba able todo, someone will always complain) or save it for some serato 3.0 update. I can see why they haven't done it yet.

Really? But doesn't it already output MIDI for native controllers? I could be wrong, but if it already outputs MIDI for native controllers, I can't imagine it being that much harder for it to output MIDI in general. I have a small Denon 1000 sub controller, and the LED hot starts correspond to what is on the screen, why would it be so hard to simply tell us what commands they are and have us match it in an XML file that we make? Maybe I am presenting a simplistic view here....

Me too...but maybe not for the same reasons Code:E, I just ordered 2 CDJ2000 Nexus players with the intent to learn how to use them on both Traktor and SSL. Although it will be a bit of a learning curve to switch many of my updated music from Serato Crates to Traktor Pro, I believe that Recordbox will help support it. Plus, Serato is showing me through their lack of communication and support that I do not matter and as a whole, what drives them to create software is no longer the DJ that uses Serato. Pretty sad to say, but I am at that point. Please Serato, it feels like a tipping point is around the corner, and a mass exodus may happen. Not that I am anyone special, but I am sure that I speak for many many others when I say this: It's better (and less expensive in the long run) to KEEP your customers than to try and BRING THEM BACK!

I think I'm with you on this. I have Traktor Scratch 1 and need a new £100 upgrade kit to go to Traktor Scratch 2 (as the upgrade period has expired), but I'm tempted to do it now the remix decks can be mapped to my Launchpad.

Snap quantize and remix decks along with superior sounding keylock and FX. It's just too tempting now.

I've flown the flag for Scratch Live for many years but now I feel I'm getting left behind a little now with new innovation. Don't get me wrong, I'm not slating SL or making empty threats to try and prove a point, I just feel I think I can maybe improve my game by changing to a system I already own (Audio 8).
I'll still keep my SL3 but over here in Europe I feel the Traktor boys have an advantage when playing tracks quickly and making live edits using the jump to cue and jump to loop markers. I feel this will improve my style in a resort that relies heavily on short edits to bang as many in in a short space of time.

I'll hang fire for a few weeks to see what is coming before making the Traktor 1 to Traktor 2 upgrade but if I'm not wowed, I'm pretty sure I'll make the switch.
I just hope there is something pretty special as over at Serato they have been very quiet recently. I'm waiting for the upgrade for my Twitch to "DJ" still and could be rocking Traktor on that too (with the included overlay).

Twitch + Launchpad makes a killer setup with Traktor's Remix Decks and I can't ignore that.

You do not need MIDI out for this.

Set it up in the NI Controller Editor. There's SOOOO much info on this on this site and beyond that I'm surprised it keeps coming up.
Dj Nyce 3:56 PM - 8 July, 2013
you need midi out for the x1 to be in sync with serato. yes you can enable the led with the controller editor, but without midi out the x1 will not be aware of ssl's current state.

for example say you map a button to loop. when you press the button the led will light up. but what if the loop was already enabled in ssl? now the x1 says the loop is on and in ssl the loop off.

let's not settle here...serato needs midi out. it's a basic feature that should've been there when 1.0 was released.

Same goes for my DJM-T1 mixer. The buttons light up dim when plugged in to USB, but other than that, if I activate/deactivate something, the lights stay the way they are. Hardware visual feedback is essential to my workflow

Yes & no. I don't use loops, but what you say is correct when I engage disengage FX assignment. But, when I toggle on/off on the X1 once, it does pick the state up that it should be in. Could possibly be the way I mapped the X1 as there are various ways to do it, but it does in fact work.

Totally agree. Just pointing out that NI did us SSL users a solid and in turn probably helped move more units for themselves by allowing us to get 90% of the way there with their controller editor.

When the SP-6 is closed and a sample is trigged on the Launchpad, the light stays active after the sample as played and until the SP-6 is opened again.

This looks like a bug in SL and not a mapping error.

it sends note on/off 0 or 127 to the same note/channel mapped to the control. but it's not on every control.

-ssl needs to send midi clock out

You're being unfair here. It did not take them 3 years to implement it. Of course not. I assume they started to implement and working on this feature "recently".
J.J. 3:17 PM - 15 July, 2013
It's actually the same MIDI Out code that the DN-HC4500 uses which had Native Support over 3 years ago. It was not implemented because they started charging for Native Support. This also led to Serato DJ.

Can you send notes 0-127 for different colors?

Error :(
DJ Reflex 10:46 PM - 15 July, 2013
Well... MIDI out is not what I expected. :(

I'm sure it's a wonderful feature for controllers and MIDI keypads, but I was hoping more for this...

Set "MIDI cue points" within a song to trigger MIDI effects in other software. ie. lighting software and DMX controls. As the song plays, the cue points would trigger lighting effects, pyrotechnics, fog machines, or any other DMX/MIDI controlled effect.

MIDI cue points could be on/off triggers (similar to regular cue points, but with an "off" marker as well) or a selectable region (similar to loop sections) that would turn on MIDI notes in other software.
I suppose even 1 MIDI cue (on/off combo) would be good - I could just set up my actual effects in the MIDI software, but multiple cues would be great... similar to multiple loop sections, but they can be run simultaneously. I don't know, make 3 of them per track - RGB and if they overlap each other, you get purples, and yellows and such. OR... they could only be visible (and adjustable) in the off-line payer!


Thank you Serato for the hard work anyways! Keep it up.
Dj Nyce 3:45 AM - 16 July, 2013
cues only send midi out when the cue is triggered. so no feedback on your controller as to which cues are available.

also the cues don't send midi out on track load. goes hand in hand with the first point. when switching songs, ssl would need to send midi out so that the cue buttons on the controller reflect cue status in ssl.

MAAAAAD basic. I really hope for a lot more in the future. Again something close to what ME has or better.
J.J. 6:51 AM - 17 July, 2013
THE GOOD
1. It does light all the CUE LEDs when a song is loaded.

2. You can also change the output Value in the XML file. 0 through 127. If you MIDI Map a button in SSL, it defaults to 0 and 127. For instance, on my VCI-380, CUE Pad 1 can export MIDI for RED, CUE Pad 2 = YELLOW, CUE Pad 3 = GREEN etc.

THE BAD
I've ran into nothing but problems when you do it in SSL instead of editing a XML file.
1. It sometimes creates 4 MIDI outputs code when only 1 is needed. Weird stuff.
Quote:
<midi>
<Control name="Trigger Cue Point Button A0" channel="1" event_type="Note On" control="23" />
<Output name="Trigger Cue Point Button A0">
<On channel="1" event_type="Note On" control="23" value="127" />
<Off channel="1" event_type="Note Off" control="23" value="0" />
</Output>
<Output name="Trigger Cue Point Button A0">
<On channel="1" event_type="Note On" control="23" value="127" />
<Off channel="1" event_type="Note Off" control="23" value="0" />
</Output>
<Output name="Trigger Cue Point Button A0">
<On channel="1" event_type="Note On" control="23" value="127" />
<Off channel="1" event_type="Note Off" control="23" value="0" />
</Output>
<Output name="Trigger Cue Point Button A0">
<On channel="1" event_type="Note On" control="23" value="127" />
<Off channel="1" event_type="Note Off" control="23" value="0" />
</Output>
</midi>

2. It turns OFF the lights on the 62.

3. It looks to create an accurate MIDI out while creating a Hot Cue 1 in SSL. The button is 23 for control="23".
Quote:
<Output name="Trigger Cue Point Button A0">
<On channel="1" event_type="Note On" control="23" value="127" />
<Off channel="1" event_type="Note Off" control="23" value="0" />
</Output>

4. But nothing happens. I have to copy the Denon S3900 code and change the MIDI channel. It works good with this:
Quote:
<Output name="Cue Point 1 A">
<On channel="1" event_type="Control Change" control="74" value="17" />
<Off channel="1" event_type="Control Change" control="74" value="18" />
</Output>

But now I have to go to value="1 to 127" to figure out what light turns what on for the DN-SC2000. Why can't it be easy to assign the same button to the output like in Traktor. <-- I never thought I would say that, but the latest version of Traktor sure has made it easy to program LEDs.

5. What is space " Button A"?
Quote:
<Control name=" Button A" channel="5" event_type="Note On" control="6" />
<Output name=" Button A">
<On channel="5" event_type="Control Change" control="74" value="8" />

6. Why hasn't SERATO added a button to divide a loop and a button to multiply a loop. You have to assign this to a knob. You can easily click 2 times clockwise on a knob as opposed to just hitting a button. And I'm missing something here? Is this possible?

THE GOOD
3. While no loop, the Loop In and Loop Out buttons do not light up. If there is a saved Loop 1-9 or Temp Loop, the Loop In/Out buttons will be ON. While any loop is active, the Loop In/Out buttons will be flashing. Very cool feedback.

4. While in Loop Roll or Auto Loop, the Auto Loop button will be ON. Great feedback because you know you can /2 or X2 the loop with a knob.

THE BAD
7. A piano is playing the MIDI output messages inside Windows 7, not from the RANE hardware. I don't believe I have any BOME's MIDI Translaters in the background. Does anyone know how to get rid of this on Windows 7.

8. Scratch Live 2.5.0 keeps crashing on Windows 7. Even if I go to Windows Task Manager, right-click ScratchLive.exe and select End Process... nothing happens. I have to either reboot or log off and log back on. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PUBLIC BETA? Did Serato stop caring about quality assurance?

Since Note On/Off wasn't working, I had to use 'Control Change'. I made my own conversion table. www.poweronplay.com

I compare it with my 1 Page PDF.

This was the first thing I noticed when firing up 2.5

1. - I also have a problem with the Novation Launchpad map as the 1 beat loop roll isn't dimly lit and when you press it the 1/16th auto loop light lights!

2. - When I fire off a sample with the Launchpad and the SP-6 is closed the light stays active as if the sample is still playing. I have to open the SP-6 and the light goes off. This doesn't happen if the SP-6 is open when the sample is pressed.

Problem 1 will just be a mapping error (although the publicity shot of the Launchpad the loop roll 1 beat is lit).

Problem 2 I think could be a bug with Scratch Live.

Actually, after going over the .xml for the Launchpad, I think it's an internal problem with the way SL is sending the light feedback and I'm thinking there could be a bug in it's code as from what I can see, the Launchpad .xml code seems good and all commands are in place.

so to get more functionality out of midi out, you need to edit the xml? #fail

also when i switch songs with cues, midi monitor is not seeing any midi activity and for example with an x1 the cues do not light up indicating that a cue is present. the cues only light up when i use a cue key command, click the cue or press the button on the x1.

what controller are you testing with? the 62 or the vci-380?
J.J. 5:21 PM - 17 July, 2013
I'm using the 62 and DN-SC2000. I've never had any luck MIDI mapping in SSL. It always overwrites your existing code or duplicates code for no reason. This is why I edit in the XML file. I now use DreamWeaver from ADOBE as apposed to a regular text editor. If you have an extra space or return in the XML file, SSL might not read it all together.

The great advantage of editing the XML is that you can simply copy and paste all the buttons from Deck 1 to Deck 2, 3 and 4. I use Find and Replace for the MIDI Channel and command (Left renamed to Right, A renamed to B etc.)

What controller and RANE hardware are you using?
Dj Nyce 5:30 PM - 17 July, 2013
i'm using ipad (lemur) and a traktor kontrol x1. i have a denon hc1000s and an lpd8 in a trash can as well.

for rane hardware i'm using an sl1 and a 62.
