If you're using iTunes, that's just the way it is (now).

1st thing I'm told by a Rane support person is "You know that itunes is not the best software to use with SSL, right?".

LOL...if you know that then don't offer it as an option.

That was after SSL/itunes combo decided to stop reading my entire library. Opened Serato and not a single track in there except for LiveFeed.

Well, I get the Same Issue too, But some other issue arise too.
Like Okay on Startup

Also when I click on Searching ALL
It freezes too.
I have:
Windows Vista
Duo Core 2.1gig
2gig RAM
250gig internal
1T External
and like all my Music( 20,000 songs)
I play everything Weddings and Club.
it's just the more music I put in the slower it gets.

Defrag your drive.
DJ Bushido 6:47 PM - 6 October, 2009
Well, Did That
What about, Serato, is there a way to trim her down?
My buddy told me to delete a file, that it would rebuild it.
When I did this, it took away, like if I played it.
Meaning it is green, then goes back to white.
Database V2
something like this

Hey Redemp,

Follow these directions:

Shut down SSL (Serato Scratch LIVE) if you have it open.
Open up the ScratchLIVE folder inside your 'Music' folder (Mac/Vista) or 'My Music' folder (XP).
Re-name the 'History' folder so it reads 'HistoryOLD'.
Now re-open SSL.

Any luck?

Did you rename the History folder and, after doing so, did SSL open faster?
