Scratch Live 2.1 Manual
for Rane SL 3
Adjust Loops With Vinyl
Loop end points can be adjusted using the control vinyl. Disable this option if you wish to use the computer’s arrow keys to adjust loops, and keep audio playback controlled by the vinyl. SEE LOOPING FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Next Song On The Flip
When this option is enabled, changing the side of control vinyl you’re using (‘flipping the record’) loads the next song.
Enable Vinyl Scroll
Uncheck this box to disable the Vinyl Scroll feature. SEE VINYL SCROLL FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Reverse Vinyl Scroll
This setting allows you to reverse the direction of Vinyl Scroll. SEE VINYL SCROLL FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Vinyl Scroll Speed
Vinyl Scroll allows you to load a new track without touching the computer, by lifting the needle and placing it in the special section of side A of the control record. This setting allows you to adjust the sensitivity of Vinyl Scroll, so that you can control the amount of record movement required to move between tracks.
Drop To Absolute Position
This detects a deliberate repositioning of the needle, and moves the playhead to the absolute position of the needle, as if it were in absolute mode. Accidental skipping of the needle does not reposition the playhead. (rel mode only)
Drop To Cue Points
This option triggers the corresponding cue point when the needle is repositioned into one of the first 5 one-minute sections on the control vinyl. For instance: needle dropping into the second minute on the left turntable, will send playback for deck 1 to cuepoint 2, if that cuepoint is set. (rel mode only)
Track Start Offset
If you find that you have cue burn at the beginning of the record, you will notice that the tracking will be poor at this point. Use the two knobs to offset the start point, so that the track will start playing from a point further into the control record. The first knob sets the number of whole minutes to offset by, the second knob sets the number of whole rotations within that minute.
