Could you use SSL and ITCH on the same computer

Could you use SSL and ITCH on the same computer, at the same time?

Hi AKIEM,

I'm not sure what you mean by this question? You can have them installed but whether you will be able to run both simultaneously - is there a reason why you'd want to do this?

Maybe. I dont know that I would, but people are wanting to play more then one deck. Im thinking you could be mixing with ITCH on the Vestax jog wheel thing for example, then flip over to SSL and cut it up on the 1200. Or whatever else people want more then two decks for.

Im assuming that ITCH plays two programs only.

sounds like internal mode in SSL to me... from what i have read you would use ITCH when you didnt want to have to use the turntables. instead you would use some type of controler (sounds like Torq to me)

okay. So can you use SSL on one USB and ITCH on another USB giving you four tables?

Hi AKIEM,

It is not recommended to have other programs open when running Scratch LIVE so while in theory it may work I wouldn't recommend it.

We are aware of the request for more decks to be added to Scratch LIVE. Thanks for your enquiry.

You will definitely be able to have both installed and switch seemlessly between say ITCH in your hotel room and ScratchLIVE at a gig.

As for running them at the same time, this would be cool. It definitely wont be a supported work flow right off the bat. That being said, its possible that it actually might work well on a suitable machine.

there is no reason to run them both at the same time!

I could see a use for this, however I wouldn't do it myself. Only for fun. The VCI has 1 input in, so technically, if you had 2 monitors, 2 TT w/ mixer, 2-3 USB ports, VCI, ITCH, SSL and a heap of memory... hmmm...

I think you would get into a mess with keyboard shortcuts.

It still gets me even after 10 years of working with two screens. I start typing code into my editor on the right screen only to discover focus is on the excel spreadsheet I've got open on the left and I've ruined some report.
