All apply to ITCH. What controller do you have though?

right now i have a hercules mk2 but im getting a ns6 this coming tax time.
serkan 11:10 PM - 29 October, 2013
SDJ is a free update for the NS6 so you don't have to use ITCH in the first place.
But if you're like me just download both the latest versions of ITCH and SDJ and use them as you like.

Not finding this "auto Import" folder/feature. I would love to simply link a crate to a folder on my drive so when I add files to my drive folder Serato automatically adds them to the crate and keeps it updated.

sorry, I'm using Windows/Serator DJ 1.5.1

thanks alot ! as a noob it makes me enjoy serato that much more !!

You can also simply drag and drop them from a playlist in your iTunes app to a crate in your SL or SDJ app. Works fine for me.

I sort everything out on date added and then add the latest new tracks from iTunes to SL. Even faster than your trick, Logan ;-)

hm. what about a pro tip, about shortening the loop and bringing up the key changes from defoult to +1 +2 +3 +4 and so on and you end the song at the highest pitch and shortest loop and then switch to another song or another hot cue of the same song!
how to do that would be awesome, if it is not there already.. i would like to know?
