i need the rel pitch to be on +12 who can i do that
Martin C 10:57 PM - 7 December, 2011
Hi dj-madmax,

Unfortunately that is a limitation of the Vestax Typhoon, the pitch range is +8 or -8.

Cheers :)

Serato Dj Intro and Vestax Typhoon are an entry level software/hardware package.

It often comes down to a product owners decision as to how simple/complex they wish for their product to operate.
dj-madmax 9:38 AM - 29 December, 2011
wen come its the pitch range so i can ch it
Martin C 9:02 AM - 3 January, 2012
I am sorry I could not give you any accurate information regarding when the pitch range options will be expanded.
dj-madmax 11:34 AM - 22 February, 2012
16% pitch wen its going to open out
Martin C 10:25 PM - 22 February, 2012
Hi dj-madmax,

At this point the pitch range with the Vestax Typhoon will be remaining as is.
dj-madmax 1:22 PM - 23 February, 2012
dj-madmax 1:24 PM - 23 February, 2012
so what do u mean
Martin C 9:28 PM - 23 February, 2012
The pitch range will remain as +/- 8 for the Typhoon, the decision to increase the pitch range is not in my hands.
dj-madmax 6:58 PM - 24 February, 2012
is it going to open out
2.Um.@.X 8:28 PM - 24 February, 2012

I dont thing that DJ INTRO will have the PITCH RANGE be change aside from +/-8. Like the name of the software said, its DJ INTRO.

It sounds like you already surpass the knowledge of being a beginner-level dj. Try another unit and use SERATO ITCH.

Martin C 9:27 PM - 25 February, 2012
is it going to open out

No dj-madmax, it will not.
dj-madmax 5:40 PM - 20 April, 2012

dj-madmax 5:42 PM - 20 April, 2012

dj-madmax 6:46 PM - 23 April, 2012
open out the pitch range to 16% and up. for the vestax typhoon it a need a update
2.Um.@.X 11:50 PM - 23 April, 2012
No plans to update PITCH RANGE. Buy new device. Buy SERATO ITCH controller.
dj-madmax 1:51 PM - 25 April, 2012
wll make plans
dj-madmax 1:54 PM - 25 April, 2012

dj-madmax 1:54 PM - 25 April, 2012

dj-madmax 2:04 PM - 25 April, 2012
serato itch and dj intro think abut that the pitch range have to be the same from FROM 6% AND 8% AND 12% AND 16% AND 20% AND 25% AND MAYBE 30%
dj-madmax 2:06 PM - 25 April, 2012
so if one song FAST and ONE SLOW WHAT CAN I DOO lol
2.Um.@.X 5:02 PM - 25 April, 2012

dj-madmax 7:06 PM - 25 April, 2012
i did that
dj-madmax 7:06 PM - 25 April, 2012
its not helping
Martin C 11:49 PM - 25 April, 2012
Hi dj-madmax,

Serato DJ Intro is a essentially an entry level DJ software with a smaller feature set to our other softwares.

I can't imagine this particular feature will change in the foreseeable future, but I can suggest that if this particular limitation does hinder your performance/experience, you could upgrade to one of our ITCH controllers which have a much larger pitch range available.
dj-madmax 5:09 PM - 26 April, 2012
so boss what can we do
phatbob 5:25 PM - 26 April, 2012
Sell Typhoon.

Buy Itch controller.
dj-madmax 5:26 PM - 26 April, 2012
whats the name of it
phatbob 7:18 PM - 26 April, 2012
dj-madmax 7:36 PM - 26 April, 2012
why do i need to buy that tell me why
dj-madmax 7:40 PM - 26 April, 2012
why do u update the pitch rang on the searto
Martin C 10:19 PM - 26 April, 2012
Hey dj-madmax,

I guess the reason why you would want to buy an ITCH controller is because it does sound like to me that having a wider pitch range is fairly important to you and your DJing experience.

As I have explained, Serato DJ Intro is an entry level DJ software which has a fairly limited feature set.
dj-madmax 11:23 PM - 26 April, 2012
2.Um.@.X 3:30 PM - 27 April, 2012
why do i need to buy that tell me why

why? because you are looking for features you cannot find in SERATO DJ INTRO.

why do you DO NOT WANT TO BUY new controller for SERATO ITCH?
dj-madmax 7:44 AM - 28 April, 2012
i was djing white virtual dj in a party and i need a new controller thats why and all i do is dj thats how live my life and i dont make a lat of money jus open out the pictch for me and wee plz we need it
phatbob 9:29 AM - 28 April, 2012
You don't need it. If you need to go more that 8% then those songs do not mix well together and it will sound bad. You need to learn some more mixing techniques.
dj-madmax 5:59 PM - 28 April, 2012
why dont u go platy whit it
Martin C 4:20 AM - 30 April, 2012
Hey dj-madmax,

Not that you are the ONLY person asking for something like this, I will admit, there are a handful of people that would like a larger pitch range on their intro controllers.

But I do think you will find the majority of users are happy with +/-8 because it usually isn't necessary for entry level DJ software users. If you having a bigger range is essential to your DJing, I recommend looking into purchasing an ITCH controller.

Thanks :)
dj-madmax 5:50 PM - 30 April, 2012
sorry but come on that need to open out someone in serato have to do it wee can not do it thats the only thing
Martin C 1:58 PM - 1 May, 2012
There isn't much more I can tell you dj-madmax, its just very unlikely to actually happen for Serato DJ Intro.

What I can do is set and close this thread as a "feature request" meaning that, if the Product Owners decide to add more functionality to Serato DJ Intro, they can browse these forums to see what is requested by many users. If enough people were asking for the tempo range to be opened up, then the chances of it happening may increase.
dj-madmax 12:44 AM - 2 May, 2012
yea opened it up
dj-madmax 3:39 PM - 1 October, 2012
wen is the next updadet
Martin C 6:37 PM - 1 October, 2012
Sorry dj-madmax, I couldn't say exactly when the next update will be but please keep subscribed to our mailing list, there will be news of an update fairly soon :)
dj zaza 7:33 PM - 1 October, 2012
Let's talk about Typhoon then I that I have a VCI 400 and that some things are forced to use traktor. I think they were wrong to create the VCI 380 for itch had to be the opposite, of course issues of sale. I hope that serato create a program to maximize the potential of the VCI 400.
Martin C 8:14 PM - 1 October, 2012
Yes dj zaza, we do hope to eventually implement features like 4 deck controls for the VCI-400.
2.Um.@.X 12:58 AM - 3 October, 2012
I guess the feature will not happen. The pitch increase adjustment will not happen. If there would be request for the upcoming DJ INTRO would be an increase of effects.
2.Um.@.X 12:59 AM - 3 October, 2012
And if possible for the use of the 4-channel mixer on the Numark N4 and VCI-400.
2.Um.@.X 1:13 AM - 3 October, 2012

i guess your wish did come true!

Check out the link below.

Martin C 1:34 AM - 3 October, 2012
When Serato DJ becomes available for the Vestax Typhoon, you will be able to access a larger pitch range.
2.Um.@.X 4:30 AM - 3 October, 2012
For Vestax Typhoon? Wait till Winter 2013..... thats more than a year from now.
Martin C 6:08 AM - 3 October, 2012
No, thats THIS coming Winter in the Northern Hemisphere.
dj-madmax 4:53 AM - 10 October, 2012
ok cool
Martin C 5:34 AM - 10 October, 2012
Can I close this, or move it into a general discussion area? Its no longer really a "help request"
dj-madmax 2:31 PM - 12 October, 2012
Typhoon serato itch and dj intro think abut that the pitch range have to be the same from FROM 6% AND 8% AND 12% AND 16% AND 20% AND 25% AND MAYBE 30% and the loop to 16 36
dj-madmax 2:35 PM - 12 October, 2012
rec and fx key and and midis control
Martin C 6:39 AM - 13 October, 2012
Hey dj-madmax,

I can't say for certain what ranges will be available when it works for Serato DJ the project is completed, but I think its quite likely there will be more pitch range available than there was in Serato DJ intro.
dj-madmax 6:02 AM - 15 October, 2012
nomore problem just recing and the pitch and fx key and midis control.
Martin C 9:32 AM - 15 October, 2012
Yes, those features will be available with Serato DJ :)
dj-madmax 5:52 PM - 15 October, 2012
noooooooooooo more problem just make it work like searto.
dj-madmax 5:53 PM - 15 October, 2012

dj-madmax 6:37 PM - 15 October, 2012
Martin C 4:01 AM - 16 October, 2012

Martin C 12:56 AM - 7 November, 2012
You can use + or - on your computer to zoom in/out on the waveforms to make it appear faster.
dj-madmax 9:23 PM - 10 November, 2012

dj-madmax 5:21 PM - 13 November, 2012
its not working for dj intro
dj-madmax 5:22 PM - 13 November, 2012
i have a hp pc netobook
2.Um.@.X 5:49 PM - 13 November, 2012
You can use + or - on your computer to zoom in/out on the waveforms to make it appear faster.

This feature does not work on SERATO DJ INTRO. I don't think they will apply this feature for the next DJ INTRO releases. Better wait for SERATO DJ, then all features from ITCH will be available for your unit.
dj-madmax 9:33 PM - 14 November, 2012
smh ok
Martin C 11:06 PM - 14 November, 2012
Apologies dj-madmax, the zoom feature does not work for Serato DJ Intro.

The Vestax Typhoon will be supported soon for Serato DJ, so you will be able to use this feature and more with the upgrade :)
dj-madmax 4:57 AM - 16 November, 2012
Martin C 9:19 AM - 16 November, 2012
Ok, I am going to close this, but as always, you are welcome to post back if you have more questions.

2.Um.@.X 9:10 PM - 17 January, 2013
why 129$ nah

Why complain for $129 ? If you were the one who work 8hrs a day, 5 days a week.... would you like to work for FREE?
Martin C 10:28 PM - 17 January, 2013
why 129$ nah

This cost keeps many teams of developers working hard to fix bugs/add new features/add controller support constantly. If we gave it away for free there is no way we could move forward with the software.
dj-madmax 6:16 AM - 2 February, 2013
wen can i play wit it
Martin C 9:41 PM - 3 February, 2013
As listed on this page, the Vestax Typhoon will be supported for Serato DJ in Winter:
dj-madmax 8:46 PM - 4 February, 2013
its comeing out in february
Martin C 8:51 PM - 4 February, 2013
Sorry, where did you see that?
FabulousFrequencies 9:38 PM - 5 February, 2013
LOL.. I wandered into the wrong forum and found this thread semi-amusing.

Max, you get what you pay for in life and you paid for an entry level controller with entry level software and that is that. Instead of asking the Serato team to hand you the same features ITCH users spent significantly MORE for, Just go back to VDJ. There is a map file for VDJ and your controller that will put you right back at the wheel of your old program with your new controller. Problem solved.
Martin C 9:14 PM - 6 February, 2013
Or upgrade to Serato DJ when its available for the Typhoon :)

I agree with everything else you have said though!
dj-madmax 7:16 AM - 11 February, 2013
Martin C 9:20 AM - 11 February, 2013

Martin C 8:57 PM - 1 March, 2013
Serato DJ Intro is free software that supports some of the more entry level/lower bracket controllers, and we don't plan on expanding the features in Serato DJ Intro.

If you wish have a "good update" I highly recommend purchasing a Serato DJ license when it supports the Vestax Typhoon.
dj-madmax 5:38 AM - 19 March, 2013
whats going on wit that open out the pitch range to 16% and up. for the vestax typhoon it a need a update
