ITCH General Discussion

Talk about Serato ITCH software and controllers.

ITCH WORKING WITH MIX EMERGENCY

keith jackson 4:22 AM - 23 October, 2012
Ive Often Wondered Could I Use Itch With Mix Emergency? Well With A little Extra Time on My hand and A knack For Learning, I can Say Yes you can use ITCH With MIX EMERGENCY. It Took awhile to Figure how to do this and Really it was By Pure Accident I figured This Out. I use Scratchlive And mixemergency I also Use Serato Video But Ive grown Very fond Of Mixemergency So I thought there's got to be a Way. Well There is and Here is a Vid to Show It can Be Modded To do So with out running scratchlive in the Back ground.

There is no official word yet.
Maskrider 12:31 PM - 23 October, 2012
What I'm trying to say is it should be tested and approved by Inklen.
phatbob 12:32 PM - 23 October, 2012
Looks to me like Keith has cleverly hacked a little workaround. This won't be supported by Serato or Inklen, I'm sure. But I want it!
DJRemixEnt 12:34 PM - 23 October, 2012
yeah buddy!!!

If He figured it out.....I bet they know about it too (Inklen and Serato) they just keeping quiet about it.....lol

Hahaha gotta love us DJs. "Where there's a will there's a way". Thanks keith jackson. Look forward to the next video.
Hitman303 2:58 PM - 23 October, 2012
very nice!
SeriousCyrus 3:32 PM - 23 October, 2012
Very interested to know how that's done

I tried to get itch working with ME, almost had it working but was not a nice solution and very unstable, this looks much better.
DJ Kos 4:30 PM - 23 October, 2012
This is very interesting. Might have to look into this.
keith jackson 4:46 PM - 23 October, 2012
Hey Everyone I'm Gonna do a New Video In a couple Of Hours With The How To Mod. I need Some help As Far as Making this Mod Accessible To Everyone. I'm curious to see How it works On all hardware for ITCH Controllers. It's confirmed to work on Vestax, NS7 and NS6. I'm confident it will work on All controllers. This is Not for Sell Just want to Share This With My Fellow DJ's. It's 12:45 my time I'll post Around 3:30 today.
keith jackson 4:48 PM - 23 October, 2012
BTW it's only Been Mod For Mac, only because Mix Emergency Doesnt Run on Windows.
DJRemixEnt 4:48 PM - 23 October, 2012
Sounds good brotha... Lookin forward to it.... I'm interested to see what nick has to say.
keith jackson 4:54 PM - 23 October, 2012
I'm Sure Serato and ME knew this could be done but maybe it's a License Agreement or something like that. To know it can be done Leaves the qeustion Open is to will it be Done and why Hasn't it? ITCH can clearly Run (ME) As if it was Scratchlive so I wonder why not Make it available? They would sell More ITCH controllers and Inklen Would sell more Video Plugins?
DJRemixEnt 5:04 PM - 23 October, 2012
Yeah I'm not sure what gets discussed behind closed doors when it comes to the technicalities... But I'm a Vci 300 owner, and I'd prefer to use ME with itch. The video quality coming from Serato video is horrible...even on the best setting... ME is just crystal clear and brighter....plus there's a shitload more efx and bells n whistles.
keith jackson 5:11 PM - 23 October, 2012
I Agree DJRemixEnt, I very much So love ME and The Quality is Awesome, Serato's New Video Plugin is Getting better And most ITCH users are Happy with it. But I Know there where a Few ITCH users who felt like damn Would be nice to have another option. So I'll Share this and Hopefully Both Serato And Inklen Will see people want this.

What's that got to do with discovering a work around?
keith jackson 5:24 PM - 23 October, 2012
Now isn't that interesting. Ok I better Idea I won't Share The File I'll make A video on how to Mod.
DJRemixEnt 5:44 PM - 23 October, 2012
So u actually had to modify the itch program itself........ok, I thought u were talking about modding something in the _serato_ folder.... That Explains the above post...I got it now...lol
lofty 10:10 PM - 23 October, 2012
WOOT - figured it out ! - it's actually REALLY easy.

thanks Keith!!!

now to midi map DDJ - S1 :D

I'll report back soon
lofty 11:15 PM - 23 October, 2012
and almost an hour later -
S1 can midi map when Itch isn't running but loses signal when itch is running
I know when I had my VCI I could "steal" the midi signal with mini translator but I don't have it anymore - tech tools doesn't have the DL link anymore - gotta find it elsewhere

BUT ...
Pulled out Trigger Finger and can map midi in Mix emergency fine - :D

I'll probably use a second controller so I can map effects and transitions
pdidy 1:08 AM - 24 October, 2012
As great as this is, there seems to be a lingering issue......Serato may very well lock this backdoor in the serato dj software. I have yet to look into the mod but i would assume it could have worked in serato dj too.....Just thinking out loud.
keith jackson 1:15 AM - 24 October, 2012
Here is A new vid Of Actual Function Of ITCH and ME and How it opens, Cant Post the Mod File I Read could be trouble, But Ill Put up A Vid On How to Do This.

holly shit this seems legit as far as i can tell, you sir have opened the pandora's box lmfao. Should've waited until Serato DJ was released, now they might shut the door on Serato DJ (pretty sure your mod would apply to Serato DJ its not like they reinvented the wheel).
phatbob 3:08 AM - 24 October, 2012
Can someone who's worked it out please just post instructions?

I figured out how to change the display name in the menu bar but ME still doesn't see it...

DJREMIXENT Also did his own Hack, Looks Like the cats out the bag.
lofty 3:53 AM - 24 October, 2012
really easy (I'm assuming you are on a Mac)
I should let Keith explain but .......

in finder you want to "show package contents" of Scratch Live
then open "MAC OS" folder

do the same with itch

- I than re - named the itch file (in Mac OS folder to - Scratch LIVE)
replace new renamed file to Scratch live.- package Mac OS folder

now when you open Scratch Live - it actually opens Itch :D
open Mix emergency and you should see the green scratch live light.
keith jackson 4:05 AM - 24 October, 2012
Your Hack Is Almost like Mine But Mine Is All I did was replace The Info Playlist with Scratchlive Info Playlist And it works. Theres several other ways but this seems more stable then most I tested
keith jackson 4:09 AM - 24 October, 2012

im still interested in hearing what serato and inklen have to say about the whole thing... but i guarantee serato is gonna tighten that shit up in the next release...

hell, this is gonna spread like wild fire... and i guarantee you'll have made inklen a few more sales....
pdidy 6:01 AM - 24 October, 2012
Now you just need to think of a name for the mod with your name in it
DJRemixEnt 6:05 AM - 24 October, 2012
i sold my v7's and bought a vci 300 just to use for bars and smaller gigs... and ive been messing around with serato video... and the picture quality just sucks balls compared to ME. (and thats with SV on the best setting)... i see serato making strides to get to the level ME is at...(well more like baby steps....just keepin it real...lol), but they just arent there yet. so im glad to be able to use ME with itch now... even if its bootlegged...lol

keith jackson 8:30 AM - 24 October, 2012
OK Here is what you Do

you want to Go to ITCH APP Push Control Or right Click And you will see "show package contents" do the same with SCRATCHLIVE APP, All I did was replace The "PROPERTY LIST" File in ITCH with the One from Scratchlive "PROPERTY LIST" And it works. There's several other ways but this seems more stable then most I tested. Here is a video to show you how to run it Once its done. ENJOY

with this you need to open ITCH from within "show package contents"
and the terminal window stays open - if I close it Itch will close.

by replacing the Scratch LIVE file with Itch (renamed to scratch live) you can open Scratch live - but it actually opens Itch and you can use mix emergency fine.


---------------

Perhaps if the ME folks see how easy it to work with ITCH, they could release an update to allow ITCh to use ME without a hack - seeing as Scratch LIVE never "officially" supported ME, why wouldn't they?

----------------

Also in playing with ME and ITCh - any audio file linked with a video that I did in serato video is still linked in ME - kind of cool .

i wonder if this will work with Serato DJ, ITCH and Scratch live are almost like twin brothers but who knows if this hack will work with this new member of the family.

I'm Going to Indorse Lofty's Mod As a better Mod. His Way is cleaner and no Terminal Has to be used Thx Lofty. Plz Follow Lofty's Mod it's really The easiest and best way
keith jackson 3:46 PM - 24 October, 2012
Sorry There is a much better way to do this Mod Thx the Lofty

you need to go to SCRATCHLIVE App, Then right click or push control, from within "show package contents" Go to MAC OS folder Then by replacing the Scratch LIVE file with Itch File
(renamed to scratch live) you can open Scratch live - but it actually opens Itch and you can use mix emergency fine.

lofty 4:11 PM - 24 October, 2012
After I just renamed the modded file - so I still have my unhacked itch and SL but have the one modded for ME

So far the only issue I've found is if you are running Itch w/ ME and close ME you WILL lose control of Itch however audio will continue to play.

You do realize that if you would have kept this under wraps until after Serato DJ was released, the likelihood that this method would have worked for a Serato DJ + MixEmergency combination, would have been VERY high, right?

But now that the cat's out of the bag, it'll probably get c0ck-blocked with the first release of Serato DJ.

To be Honest I Didn't know About Serato DJ coming Out and I purely Did it to see if it could be Done. Whos to say it won't work or Even if would have ever worked. I just wanted to share so knowledge I thought DJ's Would Get a kick out of it.

Definetly do this, but I'd recommend first copying your scratch live app, renaming it, then do the mod in your renamed SL package. Then both original installations are untouched.

OTH, ME now has a bunch of new users who are going to throw a fit if the hack is fixed, leading to a neverending flood of mails and forums posts asking for compatibility to be restored. Once you start using ME, it's hard to go back.

Unless Serato start different versions for mac and PC, I don't see how they're going to get the customisability of ME and QC in a platform independent package.

remember itch 2.2.2 is the LAST itch version - so that won't lose ME on that.

as for Serato DJ - we will have to wait a week to find out if this mod can work with it
- BUT serato has already outsourced effects with iZotope - sooooo it would be nice if the ME door was open -

I'm going to the release of the DDJSX in toronto - so hopefully a pio-rep will let me see if the mod works :D

i've gone through all the steps numerous times and can't get it to work. I've looked at the youtube video and duplicated everything and it still won't work. I Scratch live recognizes it now itch but mix emergency is still showing a red light when i open it. What could the problem be?

did you rename the file exactly: Scratch LIVE

it's case sensitive... so you have to make sure its typed correctly

Yes i right clicked like the video instructed and made a duplicate of the itch folder and named it Scratch LIVE. Then i replaced the one in the scratch live mac folder and nothing.

What version of itch are you using and which version of ssl are you using? Also do you have serato video or video sl installed and again what versions.
lofty 4:32 PM - 25 October, 2012
JDforKING


do you have serato video installed?
I used itch 2.2.2 and SL 2.4.2


after you open the mod file - (which is technically scratch live) does Itch open but it says scratch live in top menu and when you look at your version of itch it should say 2.4.2.
lofty 4:34 PM - 25 October, 2012

1. you renamed itch (unix file in macOS folder) to Scratch LIVE

2. you replace the Scratch Live (unix file) in scratch live/macOS folder with your renamed file)

3. open Scratch Live - the one you just modded

4 do you have a scratch live icon, scratch live in top menu, or running in activity monitor but are actually looking at itch GUI?

1. Yes
2. Replaced it with the renamed itch duplicate labeled Scratch LIVE
3. Yes opened modded scratch live, which opens as itch 2.4.2
4. Scratch live icon yes, scratch live in top left menu corner, scratch live is shown running in activity monitor but the itch gui is shown.

try without a controller (or with if you tried without)


(perhaps a reboot of your mac)

time to work again

Lofty's Updated Hack version is Pretty simple To Do? Plus I think that With the Release Of Serato DJ coming There not gonna rewrite The Program just to Kill this Mod, Well not the first 1.0 of it anyway. But who's to say its gonna be Like Scratchlive and ITCH? Maybe this version of ITCH is the Last One Since some feel its all gonna get Phased out and Serato DJ will be the New controller Standard. As long as there's Smart DJ's Who want Things And have a Knack for learning there will always be New Modds.

Which version of ME? One thing I can think of is that you're running a version that's not compatible with SSL 2.4 and above.

Are their any videos or tutorials on how to use ME with SSL or anything? Any tips on how to make the most of it, where to position it. whats what.. etc??
I havent really messed with it, I have a sweet 16 tomorrow with TV's and gotto play videos. I really wish serato video or ME had an option to play photo slideshows like virtualDJ. I always have VirtualDJ running in the background when using SSL just to show slideshows. It works, but wish i didnt have to use it.
Anyway, anywhere I can get some ideas would be appreciated!

I cant get it to work. What am I doing wrong? ME shows green like when scratch live is selected just as it does when I use the real scratch live but it doesn't actually play the video. It loads and I can see the first frame in my ME preview window but once I hit play, the video never plays along with the audio. The only difference between what I did and what your video shows is that I am running scratch live 2.3.3, but that shouldn't make a difference since I'm replacing the actual live file with the itch file right? (I running ME 2.1 too just as an fyi)

Looks like the controller mappings are hard written into the code.

I have the DDJ-SX and while using ME with lofty's mod, I cannot control FX in Serato DJ.

Also, right after i did the mod and started ME, I started to midi-map the faders and was getting very odd reactions from the x-fader. After about numerous delete & re-learn, the fader setting finally stabilized.

I haven't run into any additional function loss yet. Anyone else have this issue?

I figured out how to use the FX. copy the FX VST under resources folder of serato dj into scratch live resources.

I was able to get the X-fader working fine in ME, but you will need to have Serato Video. Enable the plugin and then go to your Video screen and let serato video load. After wards you can disable it and just run ME.

Step 1: (This step is my own) Make duplicate of Scratch Live in Applications folder.
Rename duplicate to what ever you want (ex. Scratch DJ) I did this to keep my Scratch Live program and settings in it's original condition since I still use it.

Step 2: Apply lofty's mod to the new "Scratch DJ" application.
Watchwww.youtube.com

Step 4: (This step is my own) Copy the Resources folder from the package contents of the Serato DJ application and replace the Resources folder in the "Scratch DJ" package contents folder you created.

Step 5: Apply your steps to activate Serato Video plugin and start ME to automatically map faders. Then, as you instructed, deactivate the Serato Video plugin.

Everything in Serato DJ should work, and post fader FX still play.

I hope this works for everyone.

Would really hope that Serato spend their time developing their own software, (Eg Bridge for Ableton 9 on all platforms, Syphon output in Serato Video) than closing backdoors.

Personally, I think they should officially have opened for ME in Itch/SeratoDJ already.
Choice is a good thing, creates competition and better programs/results in the end.

It wasn't their choice to make.. M.E. And Searto are two different companies (I'm sure everyone know that) And it wasn't in the best interest of Nick to Develop M.E. to work with Itch.. Now from what I've seen he has made a squeak about this cause I'm sure me wants nothing to do with it.. What why ME is the way it is.. As close to flawless as he can get it.

I don't buy that, I don't see why ME wouldn't want to develop for itch, as it is, ME just gained access to another market for zero cost.

SL and Itch both use the same plugin, and this is probably why the hack works. Whatever values and media ME gets from Serato VE, it doesn't care if it's originaly from Itch or SL. This would make sense, Serato would have a common interface to both products. I think that ME somehow hijacks that info before it arrives in Serato Video.

I would love to know how ME hijacks the data, I could do so much, I have a feeling it's something super simple to implement too......

Still, it's interesting that no one, from inklen or serato, has said anything on these forums or on Inklens.

I really can't understand why Serato don't give more room to allow people to develop addons for their products. Obviously SV and ME are competitors, but with ME so far ahead, Serato can only piss off loyal users by blocking access.

No one seems to have pointed out that Mix Emergency has never actually been officially supported by Serato and is a third party plugin / stand-alone application, and was even shut out of Scratch Live for some time to make way for Serato Video.

post fader FX kind of works. If I'm cutting the cross fader it works, but if I turn off the FX, it immediately turns off (similar to disengaging FX assignment on the channel)



I think it's that way by design. Maybe using the wet/dry knob instead will get you the transitional "fx off " you want.

Step 1: (This step is my own) Make duplicate of Scratch Live in Applications folder.
Rename duplicate to what ever you want (ex. Scratch DJ) I did this to keep my Scratch Live program and settings in it's original condition since I still use it.

Step 2: Apply lofty's mod to the new "Scratch DJ" application.
Watchwww.youtube.com

Step 4: (This step is my own) Copy the Resources folder from the package contents of the Serato DJ application and replace the Resources folder in the "Scratch DJ" package contents folder you created.

Step 5: Apply your steps to activate Serato Video plugin and start ME to automatically map faders. Then, as you instructed, deactivate the Serato Video plugin.

Everything in Serato DJ should work, and post fader FX still play.

I hope this works for everyone.



@longshot.. this worked for me. Thanks for the info!


I can not get this to work. I have ssl 1.9.2 and i downloaded the newest version and still cant get ME's to work.

If the video plugin is already activated, should it be deauthorized first and then follow these steps?

When my duplicate ssl opens, it does open serato dj and show as version 2.4.3 but ME wont read. Any ideas?
DJCheLu 7:27 PM - 18 November, 2012
^^ I read through the whole thread again and fixed my issue. I was using ME 2.0.1. Everything seems to work fine without the controller. Next step is trying the ddj sx :)
DJ SPARKY 1 6:55 PM - 15 February, 2013

Maskrider 12:54 PM - 3 May, 2013
