Serato DJ Q&A Session

The announcement of Serato DJ 1.5, available this October, probably throws up a few head scratchers about the future of the platform and what it means for you. We've tried to answer most of the questions we thought you might have about your setup and about what comes next. Take a look, and if there's anything that's unclear, just hit us up in the comments. We're hanging around to chat :)

What will happen to Scratch Live? Will there be any further updates to Scratch Live?

Scratch Live will continue to be supported until 2015. We plan to release updates in order to solve any compatibility issues or major bugs that we may encounter during this period of time.

When will my Rane Hardware be supported?

The Rane Sixty-Two, Sixty-One, Sixty-Eight mixers and the Rane SL 2, SL 3 and SL 4 are all planned to be supported for Serato DJ early 2014.

Why is my Rane TTM 57SL or Rane SL 1 not supported for Serato DJ?

Both the Rane TTM 57SL and Rane SL 1 have had a long healthy life working with Scratch Live. Rane has discontinued manufacturing these units for some time and the technology used is now outdated. Due to significant technical challenges that this presents, we are unable to provide Serato DJ support. Scratch Live will continue to be supported until 2015, so we can try and resolve any bugs or compatibility issues that may arise.

Our Support Team will continue to provide help to TTM 57SL and SL 1 owners indefinitely.

Which Scratch Live Accessories will be supported and when?

The CDJ-2000nexus, CDJ-2000, Novation Dicers and Denon DN-HC1000S will be supported in a gradual roll out during Winter 2014. There are no plans at this stage to support other devices.

Will my Scratch Live library be compatible with Serato DJ? (Crates? MIDI mappings? FX presets? Loops)

Yes, your Scratch Live library (files and crates) will work with Serato DJ. Your MIDI presets and Scratch Live FX presets will not work with Serato DJ, as the functionality is very different and the mapping architecture has changed significantly. However, to create a new MIDI map for your controller is just as easy with Serato DJ as it is with Scratch Live.

Your saved loops and cue points in Scratch Live will be available in the saved loop/cue point slots in Serato DJ, so you will not need to create these again.

I built all my overviews in Scratch Live. Do I need to rebuild my overviews in Serato DJ?

No you will not need rebuild the overviews, all the same information that you have in Scratch Live, will be read in Serato DJ. However, if you have not used Beatgrids before, you may need to re-analyze in order to create Beatgrids. Beatgrids allow you to take advantage of certain features e.g; Slicer.

Do I have to pay for Serato DJ?

Serato DJ will be a free upgrade for Rane Sixty-Eight, Sixty-Two, Sixty-One mixers and Rane SL 2, SL 3 and SL 4 interfaces. Serato DJ is also free upgrade for eligible ITCH controllers and supported Serato DJ hardware. Serato DJ is a paid upgrade only for supported DJ Intro controllers. Check out the Serato DJ Hardware page to see a complete list of supported hardware.

Will the current Scratch Live control vinyl still work with Serato DJ?

Yes, the all CV02/2.5 edition control vinyl will work with Serato DJ.

Can I have both Scratch Live and Serato DJ installed on the same computer?

Yes. You can have both applications installed on your computer at the same time, if you wish to try Serato DJ at home before you are ready to DJ out with it. However, it is not recommended to have both applications open at the same time.

Will the minimum specifications for Serato DJ be the same across all hardware? Or different for some devices e.g the Rane SL 4?

The minimum specifications remain the same for all hardware. Check here to find out the minimum specifications for Serato DJ.

Will I be able to use up to 4 decks with Serato DJ?

Yes, with supported hardware.

Does my Serato Video license I use with Scratch Live still work with Serato DJ?

Yes. If you already have Serato Video installed, it will work straight away with Serato DJ. If you have Video-SL installed with Scratch Live only, you will need to upgrade your license for Video-SL in order to use it with Serato Video.

Does The Bridge work with Serato DJ?

No, at this point there are no announcements regarding The Bridge for Serato DJ.

How will Serato DJ 1.5/1.6 DVS mode work with a VCI-380 in stand alone mixer mode? As per the user manual, a DVS box is needed in order to use the VCI-380 stand alone mixer portion with two turntables.
Thanks

So basically Serato Scratch Live is being fazed out completely by 2015 and only your very expensive products will be supported! Spend over $1000 or more with Rane or be left out in the cold. This is why Traktor products will continue to be an attractive DVS alternative and is quickly gaining a larger market share everyday. The Apple Corporate think-tanks thought just like the corporate Rane guys do today , now look at the Android market share today compared to when they first where introduce into the scene!

It's great that they'll support the hardware, but what good does that do if you don't support the software?

I'd also be really curious to know what the technical challenges are behind not supporting those two pieces of hardware. It's always frustrating when you buy into something and companies stop supporting the hardware, even though it works great.
djcaraby 1:10 AM - 5 September, 2013
I use both scratch live and serato DJ. I'm really shocked that the program that made serato number one is being fazed out. My question is I have a very large library and serato DJ crashes every time I try to open it on my windows PC. Is this problem gonna be fixed before scratch live is done? Serato DJ works fine on my mac but it has never worked on Windows for me.

DJ Cheba - They are not implying that at all. The only hardware that is not supported is the SL1 and the 57. The last time that I checked the SL 2 was going for less than $500. The guys at Serato have clearly said they will continue to support 57 and SL 1 users.

This is a smart move on their part. Scratch Live was due for a huge overhaul and this is it. I for one am excited to see how this rolls out. This is allowing us even more control of music and creativity.

I am hoping that they will offer this DVS support directly for VCI-380s and other controllers with suitable soundcards.

Probably not immediately though... and I'll be happy to pay for the DVS plugin and not have to use a secondary DVS soundcard.

Great question! But the answer is no. Currently there are no controllers that will allow that function when Serato DJ 1.5 is available.

Its something we plan on for the future, for devices that will allow for it though, so stay tuned! :)

Martin, you've spilled the beans now.

Keep up the great work. One platform = more power to us all!!!

you've stated the pioneer ddj sx1 mixer wont be able play control vinyl as of yet BUT what if i have that same mixer/controller with my current sl-4 box, would the platter's of the pioneer ddj-sx1 work????
thebulge 1:59 AM - 5 September, 2013
I have feeling that might be a bit of a gray area for a bit until it's officially supported. You'll probably have to stick with SSL.

The SL interface and the controller would be in conflict.

No. Serato DJ can only output to one soundcard at one time, so it will have to be either your DDJ-SX or your SL-4.

1.5 itself will not, but now that we have one platform to put all our energy into, it's much more likely that it'll get resolved sooner. We're still investigating and still working on it Cleancut. It's a little bigger than a simple bug fix though.

We're committed to library improvements in Serato DJ for sure.

I was very happy to hear Abelton Live was finally going play nice with Serato and now The Bridge won't be supported ether! WTF Guys!
Make up your mind gentlemen! You ether going to work with others or be fazed out in the end. I'm tired of workaround solutions for your expensive products. I for one own Traktor & Serato products and I can go ether way, whoever has the right solution for my needs that's where I will go! Right now is not looking good for Serato.

I can't confirm exactly when we will support the CDJS with HID mode, but it is planned to happen.

Not just yet, but it will happen for the controllers that allow for it at some stage. Perhaps you view all of the things we have announced as pointless, but my take on it is:

- Merging the codebase so Serato only has to work on software. Decreases testing overhead by double. Allows us to move faster in the future when we don't have to fix bugs or add features twice.

- Brings the feature set between vinyl/CDJ users and controller users closer together.

Anythings possible in the future, but there are no plans at this stage.

That sounds technically challenging, and a little confusing. First of all, you don't need to buy any specific mixer, your V7s will activate Serato DJ (when they are supported). 4 decks is something I can't answer - I am not sure of the V7s technically allow for that, or its just something we will need to do. What I can say for sure is, when the V7s are first supported in Serato DJ, it will only have two deck functionality.
blackavenger 3:10 AM - 5 September, 2013
Will us SeratoDJ users that have SL2/3/4's be able to plug in our soundcards and get DVS at the same time as our controllers? If so, then at least that is something for now.
Martin C 3:13 AM - 5 September, 2013
The same answer applies. You could run the audio from the Rane device through the mixer part of the controller but the platters won't work at the same time as DVS.

As I have said above, that is something we plan on doing in the future for controllers that allow it, but it currently isn't possible, and won't be in Serato DJ 1.5 thats for sure.

Hey, I can't argue w' that. I have been wanting Y'all to streamline your development for a long time now. It seems, at least in that respect, I got my wish. I would much rather Y'all be working on one program, than three. I guess I was just confused when I read the headline. I thought that DVS was going to be available for the controllers.

Again, will I be able to connect my SL3 & my DDJ-SX at the same time, and control both the static platters and CDJs/Turntables? I haven't been able to discern that from what I have read thus far.
DjCheba 3:18 AM - 5 September, 2013
Sounds like Rane decided to cater to the masses and no longer support the professional dj.
Serato Dj , Virtual Dj what's the difference?
Wait, wait I know, the price of the supported Rane controller!! 😡

Never mind, you answered my question. Basically, we have to wait until the next generation of controllers come out that will facilitate this functionality. Probably a few months before or after this happens, Y'all will begin to support the Rane soundcards to do the same thing. Either way, it's cool. At least Ya'll are streamlining your shizzz.........hopefully now into the future, you can get back to innovating again. Regardless, I am pleased with this new development.

Yup, I am sure you do have plenty of work to do, but all towards a better goal of single platform! I look forward to DVS on my controller when you guys get there. Glad you've been listening to our requests.

I love using my VCI-380 with vinyl (via SSL). It will be truly great to have a tightly integrated experience with Controller hybrid / DVS and SDJ!

He didn't really say that. He's said that existing controllers with capable hardware (ie. at least a 4 channel sound card in - Pio DDJ SX1, VCI-380 - they have inputs for CDJs/Phono that are directed to a sound card)... will *probably* get it in the *future*.

That's good news, but not for your gig next week.

Just because a mixer has 4 channel input for turntables and other things does not mean it can support DVS. my NS6 has a stand alone mixer but it only has a 4 channel sound card(2 in 2 out). A good example of a controller that can facilitate this would be the Xone - DX even though it has been discontinued. Reason why it is a good example is because it has a 20 channel sound card so DVS is possible. Easiest way to know if you have more than 2 channels on your sound card is to go look under playback devices by right clicking on volume control and see if you have channel options for your card in there. Obviously you need your card to be plugged in to see it under recording devices. Not sure about the SX or the 380 having sound cards that accommodate that.

Inevitably, we had to make decisions to prioritise some equipment over others. We are not saying these models will never be supported, but we don't currently have a plan for bringing them across.
Jam-2 4:05 AM - 5 September, 2013
With the SL1 and TM57SL being end of life as of 2015 (which is an ample amount of time for folks to transition) , it seems that Serato should make a effort to migrate as many SL1 and TM57 customers to the current technology (SL2/3/4 or a controller that will support DVS) - I personally applaud the single stream development. And I so want to buy a Serato DJ Controller, I just want to be able to use the mixer with my "legacy" turntables/ vinyl and for DVS functionality without the need for an additional SL2 or above interface device in the chain. I'd be fine owning both but throw us a bone. a strong MIGRATION campaign with a limited time mail in your SL1 and get a discount on the current technology hardware. - get a recycling company involved so you don't have to deal with all of the logistics, then you even get to play the " We're GREEN" card by ensuring that SL1 Hardware is properly recycled. You can keep counts on the numbers of SL1 units off the market etc. Make it a part of the campaign to give the SL1 a proper burial or something. there is NO need to extend support for the SL1 ( and burn up resources and money) if you provide current users with an opportunity to migrate with minimal impact and at reasonable cost. If this happens sign me up. It's all in the name of a better Serato DJ user experience.

It is not planned as of yet, and still being discussed if and when we can fit this into the roadmap. So, it isn't off the cards, its just that we are more certain about supporting the CDJ-2000 and CDJ-2000nexus at this point more than we are about the others, enough that we can say we will do it.

The Bridge was one of the greatest collaborative integrations for DJing and Production I have seen so far. It was innovative, solid and user friendly. Please continue this with Serato DJ. Don't leave those of us who DJ and Produce with Serato & Ableton behind. It's one of the reasons I and many of my colleagues chose to go with Ableton (you can let the Ableton guys know that too ;-D).
Cheers.
Victor AMV 4:13 AM - 5 September, 2013
How can it be that you still don't make the bridge compatible with serato DJ? Now you make serato dj compatible with vynil and cd but not with the bridge, and thousands of people are asking you to make this change; I think you are loosing a lot of followers with this issue, now that we have a lot of options it's easy to change the software, think about it, because it's a shame, and it's kind of you're playing with your customers, 'cause you're adapting serato dj to other hardware but not the one people are asking for, really really disapointed with you.

Good info. There are videos of the 380 being used for DVS under Traktor (via a registry hack so traktor thinks it's a certified soundcard).

I assume the premier SDJ controller (Pio SX) should have some serious sound card in it. Someone else can verify that?

djkurve 4:23 AM - 5 September, 2013
So here's my gripe. Why do we (the owners of a 61, 62, 68, SL2, SL3, and SL4) have to wait till December to at least try the public beta of Serato DJ with our hardware? Aren't the soundcards the same in the 64/900 SRT as the ones in the 62, 68, and SL4?

I'm just confused that the 64/900SRT are going to be fully supported right out of the gate with a brand new (stable) version of Serato DJ 1.5. and all the DVS users with a 61, 62, 68, SL2, SL3, and SL4 won't get a crack at it until the 1.6 Beta version comes out in December. Can someone from Serato explain this to me?

Also are controllers that are compatible with Serato DJ getting the 1.5 update in October?
Big C 4:25 AM - 5 September, 2013
Is there going to be any type of hardware upgrade path for those of us whom have had the SL1 box for years? I love SSL and have convinced many friends and DJ's to pick it up and use it, and this announcement really just killed the resale value of the box.
DJ Matty Stiles 4:28 AM - 5 September, 2013
For a long time people have asked to sync the sp-6. Traktors remix decks have been a huge success. You finally have the opportunity to do this, but its only available for controllers! Can you give me some clarification serato!
msoultan 4:28 AM - 5 September, 2013
Yes, please provide some trade-in incentive! I think that would be really appreciated for people that bought into the original systems. Those legacy units (SL1 and TTM57) weren't cheap and it sucks to see them go to waste.

Also, when you implement your CDJ HID support, please, please, please implement the pitch increment in the same manner as pioneer does (0.02 when using +/- 6%). And don't worry, I'll remind you :)

Thanks!
Mike
thebulge 4:30 AM - 5 September, 2013
I've had my SL1 for 7+ years, and it's certainly made me many more $$$ than the $550 I spent on it back then. It's also received countless FREE updates that have extended it's functionality immensely.

It's really pretty exceptional in the electronics / audio industry for something to have been supported for so long, and it will still be supported until 2015 via SSL. Jeepers what do people want for $500 these days?

I've seen a lot of gear you can't find current drivers for after 3 years.
thebulge 4:32 AM - 5 September, 2013
And even after support ceases post 2015, it will probably work for a few more years until a major OS / chipset update breaks USB1 support.

No offense, but if you haven't seen that light at the end of the tunnel by now, then that's on you. They discontinued the SL1 a few years ago. Hell, as soon as the SL3 came out, I sold my SL1 to upgrade to that. Wouldn't you say that you got your $530 out of your SL1? It's time to upgrade, brother....and don't be that guy asking for an "upgrade path". What company offers that nowadays? You want the new/shiny......you pay for it in full.

No offense, but if you haven't seen that light at the end of the tunnel by now, then that's on you. They discontinued the SL1 a few years ago. Hell, as soon as the SL3 came out, I sold my SL1 to upgrade to that. Wouldn't you say that you got your $530 out of your SL1? It's time to upgrade, brother....and don't be that guy asking for an "upgrade path". What company offers that nowadays? You want the new/shiny......you pay for it in full.


Honestly there are a few companies that do that (having upgrade paths for discontinued hardware). I happen to work for one, and do that on a daily basis with customers. I'm not going to name the company for a variety of reasons, but they do exist.

That being said, yes of course I've gotten my monies worth out of the SL1. That's not even a question. What bothers me most is that I'm forced to upgrade or stick with something that's been discontinued. It's not going to happen tomorrow, it will be a few years, but keeping on top of your game means sticking at the top of the software/hardware combination. I've been looking at an SL4 box for some time, as it makes a lot of sense throwing shows with my crew.

I purchased Serato years ago because of many reasons, but one of the biggest ones being continued support for the software and hardware combination. I bought a Twitch because of this as well over any other controller. I'm not saying "give me everything new and shiny for free" but having an upgrade path would be a nice move. I know I'm not the only one in this boat, and I'm happy you were able to sell your SL1 and buy an SL3, but it isn't the case for everyone.

I'm going to really have to consider what route I'm going to go down if I have to buy hardware/software again. It's a lot of money, and I have something that I really enjoy right now with SSL, but to have to buy it again? I'm just not happy about the idea in the least. It's not an inexpensive piece of kit, even if it has lasted for years.

Pioneer DJM-900SRT has a digital master out.
Rane Sixty-Four has an s/pdif session out.

Are these digital outs for the output of Serato DJ, so for example if we want to bypass the built-in (Pioneer or Rane) D/A converter can we can connect our own D/A converter to the mixer?

I'm hoping since there's finally color back in our life with the played tracks, that when we close the program and re-open it the tracks are no longer highlighted as played. I sometimes do 2 gigs a day and its confusing with these tracks being constantly highlited.
pueblofunky 5:20 AM - 5 September, 2013
I never want to give away my mixer Xone:92 because this analog mixer sounds so much better than any other digital mixer.

When Scratch Live will be canceled in the future, how can I use it with my SL1?

Isn't it possible to integrate SL1-4 into Serato DJ?

You still support vinyl control - so please support analog mixers (with SL1-4) as well!

I have NO problem to pay for the software but I NEVER want to switch to a digital mixer at home and I NEVER want to run into troubles going djing into a club or bar which have a mixer which is not supported by Serato DJ - but SL1-4 always works!

It is a MUST to support SL1-4 in Serato DJ.

You can go to track history and hit clear and that resets all of the highlights already.

Hey Guys,

Huge announcement! Nice work. A couple of questions:

1.) Is the vibration/bass/skipping bug found in the current SSL HID mode for CDJs going to be resolved with Serato DJ HID mode? If so, that's a great reason for me to sell my CDJ900s and upgrade.

2.) A few folks asked about the naming of cue points above but I didn't see an answer. Will this be possible in 1.5? It's SOOOOO helpful.

Thanks in advance for any info on these topics.
Dj Wunder 5:53 AM - 5 September, 2013
Is it safe to assume that we will finally see cue point naming, chronological cue points, and color tag sorting? I'd hate to be kicked off of SSL onto SDJ which is might as well be VDJ to me without these features
dbf 5:54 AM - 5 September, 2013
some good news some bad news ... with these new changes, is serato ever planning on integrating pitch n time with the new platform to make for better time stretching / time warping ?? one of my biggest beefs with serato now that you have introduced more cuepoints is how garbage the sound is when changing the tempo of tracks past about 4% .... also, why stop at 8 cue points?? why not 10, 20??? new controller looks cool! cant wait to check some new gear.

So here's my gripe. Why do we (the owners of a 61, 62, 68, SL2, SL3, and SL4) have to wait till December to at least try the public beta of Serato DJ with our hardware? Aren't the soundcards the same in the 64/900 SRT as the ones in the 62, 68, and SL4?


Soundcards and mixers aren't just supported in an instant. There is still a lot of work to do before there will be any software you can use. We just decided to tell you guys a little bit in advance that its going to happen. Sorry if this frustrates you!

Quote:
I'm just confused that the 64/900SRT are going to be fully supported right out of the gate with a brand new (stable) version of Serato DJ 1.5. and all the DVS users with a 61, 62, 68, SL2, SL3, and SL4 won't get a crack at it until the 1.6 Beta version comes out in December. Can someone from Serato explain this to me?


Currently those other devices already work with Scratch Live, where as the Sixty-Four and the DJM-900SRT don't work with any software. Surely its ok that you just have to wait a little bit longer if you have OLDER hardware that still currently works with at least some software, even though its not Serato DJ?

For a long time people have asked to sync the sp-6. Traktors remix decks have been a huge success. You finally have the opportunity to do this, but its only available for controllers! Can you give me some clarification serato!


The SP-6 won't have sync intially, but we plan to expand on sync in the future, and so it will happen for sure.

Martin C 6:09 AM - 5 September, 2013
Hey DJ Axon,

Unfortunately that is not how it will work. The DDJ-SP1 alongside the DDJ-SX will basically mirror what the other controller is doing. The DDJ-SP1 is more for devices that don't already have that functionality.
DJ Axon 6:11 AM - 5 September, 2013

Any word on Mixtape .als file multitrack recording like in SSL? Or plans for future releases?

Also, will there be drop to cue point (needle drop) and/or the easter egg "sticker sync" drop to cuepoint in Serato DJ? Or plans for future releases?

Appreciate the answer martin! Looking forward to rocking cue tags when it happens but stoked it's on the drawing boards.

Hopefully something surfaces with the Bridge or atleast mixtape .als file saving(s). That was some future ish right there!! Mike May got myself and the homey Kilmore from Incubus hyped on it a few years back and we have been using both religiously since!!! <3

Drop to cue makes me happy. Hopefully Dubcowboy's visit for your 15th anniversary will shed some light into how freaking dope that sticker sync drop to cue is!!!!! HUGE GAME CHANGER RIGHT THERE... no one else is doing it. I have gotten well over 25-30 good friends (P-trix, Kilmore, Dynamix, Mr Choc, and many more) on the sticker sync drop to cue for DJ Battle and club rocking reasons!! :)

Thanks again for taking the time! i'm excited!

Its all just about time and resources man. We do want to bring across all those familiar workflow features, but getting initial support for the devices (get them working) is a big priority that sometimes just has to take priority over setup screen features.

If we don't get the all the features in Serato DJ 1.6, we sure hope to follow through pretty soon after.

With the Pioneer DJM-900SRT you will not require an SL box, you can just connect your computer to the mixer via USB, open up Serato DJ and it will work.

Hi,

It's been a long time since I've posted on the Serato forums.

I'm in the if it isn't broke don't fix it camp and after a 10 year old Vestax finally broke on me I upgraded to the SL57 a few years back. I love the SL57 as it does what I need it to but have no need to upgrade and unlike others probably won't because lets be honest Serato and Rane have given us a robust solid product. I don't come onto the forums because frankly nothing goes wrong with the product and assuming this continues I'll have no "need" to upgrade.

What I would like to know is this. Is it possible to get a modification so that my 57 can work with the new products?

Although its an expensive piece of kit for an initial outlay if you capitalise that cost over X amount of years its peanuts. My main problem/want is a basic looking mixer with 2 channels. I'm old school enough that if you give me a mixer with 14 channels and 2 mini disc players I can work with it but I'm also old enough to know I like what I like and that is a mixer of the SL57 size and layout.

Ok - It looks like I have to buy a new (older) hardware. Is there a plan to release a brand new hardware for Serato DJ to use it with any mixer (like my analog Xone:92)?

Does Serato DJ support smart crates in the meantime? I only use these so ...

Hi,
Like somone said there's some good and bad news. Honnesltly If I have to switch to a new software but this software doesn't change anything to the way I used to earn my life. I'm cool with it.

I pretty much found answers to all my questions except about one thing.

I'm veejaying, I previously read that MixEmergency will not be supported. What does it mean. Not supported for the moment or forever ?
If the answer is Not supported anymore Is VIDEO-SL WILL be improved to match ME level ?

Why no midi mapping with SL3 and serato DJ? Is this to force me to buy more stuff? I use an external controller and don't want to buy another one just to use basic effects and loops.

You can't tell me midi mapping is hard to support! If it is you need some better coders. This functionality is basic.
DJ-JEAN-MARON 8:49 AM - 5 September, 2013
MuppetDJ:
just a hint but If Rane62 and similar will be compatible in a near futur it mean that SeratoDJ is midi mappabe, because rane 62 (i own one) send midi message to Serato Scratch Live trhu USB to control functions. So if they develop it for a rane mixer it will of course work with any other midi equipment.

DJ Mad Mix 9:18 AM - 5 September, 2013
Really disappointing, guys...
I own a 57 since 2008 and it has since then always worked great. So why change a running system?
Regarding the building quality, a planned lifespan of not even 10 years is not enough for a flagship product of that quality in the pro audio area.
I cannot imagine implementing the 57 in serato dj would be too difficult, as at the moment it is working fine with 2.5 scratch Live.
I guess many 57 owners do not want to switch to the (even more expensive) sixty-two or similar. As Caramac wrote, why not offer the option of upgrading the 57 to USB 2.0 for example? If that is possible, i would definitively go for that.
Rob van Rossum 9:32 AM - 5 September, 2013

The Rane 57 will definitely work great as it does now until 2015. Beyond that it will most likely continue to work great as a running system. At some point the march of technology will catch up with it, but many a great gig will be played with it between now and then.

Unfortunately no, the modification would be extremely custom and probably end up costing you more than the mixer did itself.

Have you tried out the Sixty-One or Sixty-Two mixers for size? Both two channels mixers that will work with Serato DJ soon.

Where did you hear that? There will be MIDI mapping functionality when Serato DJ supports the Rane SL3. You would just need some sort of additional MIDI controller to map to the software is all.

All 57ers,

I think there is no need to complain for us!

After many years we are still supported and will be until at least 2015, never paid Serato for any updates that gave new functionality to our equipment. When the time has come we can keep our setups as is and continue working with it. Including a well tested bridge to Ableton!

All we need is an old laptop which isn't released yet...

!!! Keep it oldskool !!!

How do you think the SDJ supported products will look like in 2020?

That is a good idea, would it a least be possible to control serato dj with the 57 knobs?
Problem is, the control signals the 57 is sending out right now are not standard Midi but a proprietary protocol. But you could at least make this protocol work with serato dj.

I really hope you add some more aids to mixing deck 1 & 3 beatmatching or deck 1 & 4 for SL3/SL4 hardware into SDJ. Without having the waveforms (horizontally for me) stacked next to each other, it makes a lot harder to visually mix with 3 or 4 decks when only utilising the 1 and 3rd or 1st and 4th decks. Been requesting this a long time !! There are a few ways you could add it.. please confirm to me that this issue will be addressed.. you mention more screen real estate, this has been one of the main reasons along with the 1st & 4th deck beatmatching visually issue that has kept me from upgrading from SL3 to SL4 (the only real advantage of SL4 for me would be easier plug in and outs at gigs with average 4 input mixer and setups, 2x CDJ and 2x turntables. But that's not enough of a selling point on its own.

So for my SL3 which I upgraded to from an SL1, I really want to have visual control or some more visual aids (such as waveforms extending over the unused / unloaded/ejected track deck(s) in the middle) or the ability for a setting to 'hide' decks with no track loaded when in 3/4 deck mode on SL3/SL4 for SDJ.

PLEASE help me with this. Just spent a fortune on a Xone 92, another 1200, mods and repairs and services, and some Ikea stuff, to get a 3x turntable full position set up in my room, so can finally stop using CDJ or internal for 3rd channel. So finally I will be able to mix a bit better 3x decks WITHOUT visual aids, however I've been longing for these for a long time to make SSL/future 1.5 and up SDJ to work better, so I'm really disappointed my years of feature request have gone pretty much ignored

Apart from the fact that Ableton v8/v9 has been so buggy and so many patches so often, that it would be really horrible to have to downgrade Ableton just to Bridge. Because the bugs are EVERY release and often pretty big.

I mostly agree with you. But when support for the 57 stops in two years, it then is then not even ten years that this product - advised as "future proof" - has been supported. Too short in my opinion.

After many years we are still supported and will be until at least 2015, never paid Serato for any updates that gave new functionality to our equipment. When the time has come we can keep our setups as is and continue working with it. Including a well tested bridge to Ableton!

All we need is an old laptop which isn't released yet...

!!! Keep it oldskool !!!

How do you think the SDJ supported products will look like in 2020?

;)


Exactly dude. Everyone complaining like they're losing out. The stuff still works, hell even the bridge still works if you roll back your software. The 57 will be rocking parties for a long time to come..... just not my parties anymore lol


Thanks Bro.


This is why the other month, I upgraded from my ultra crud Numark DXM-09 3x channel mixer to a second hand Xone 92. Night and day difference. Was considering the Rane mixers but darn they are SO expensive and have so many digital features I don't want or need. I prefer analog for mixers and the like. But this was why, I didn't want 'digital bug' issues with a hardware mixer, I didn't want to be disappointed and I didn't want to spend a mint.

So that's why I'm happy with my purchase. I'm not upset that some controls don't work because I never used them in the first place.

While it would be nice to not have to touch the laptop so much, it's a small price to pay to NOt pay a fortune for a mixer with a bazillion lights (I hate excessive LED lights in equipment as I often leave on while I sleep) that could potentially break a LOT easier and be a million times harder to repair, being digital and all.. not to mention becoming unsupported within some years.

When I buy equipment, I expect quite some longevity from it. Hopefully able to pass down to my kids at some stage (which I don't even have yet). A 5-10 year product cycle is as sickening to me as the endless apple version upgrades. I will NEVER have a 'smart'/silly computer phone because I have a kickass, wired internet desktop. And I don't want the pollution from wasted resources for gimmick throwaway technology, nor do I want the e-waste to end up in Ghana and elsewhere, nor do I want the endless radiation emitting from these devices against my will already. I want to buy something and have it last and work for as long as I need.. not to be told some years later - too old, so sorry.

I really hope you DO support SSL into the future with bug and hotfix patches.

That means when the 128 and 256 bit operating systems come out, and above, you'll be providing new drivers, new O/S support and PC hardware support.

Because I hate RME for never making 64 bit drivers for my Hammerfall 9652 digi. An amazing sound card, crippled by its need for XP.

Sorry to clarify this statement, I mean, I would never use half the things on a Pioneer (which I hate) or Rane mixer, so I'm not missing out, since I never have owned those assignable knobs in the first place. Not saying analog is better but it's a lot less headache. Which will die first, a turntable or a CDJ?

It's been said by Martin C that dvs is due to be able to work at some point in the future FOR CONTROLLERS THAT CAN SUPPORT IT. Can we please get a definite yes or no as to whether or not the ddjsx has the soundcard to support it?

I'm guessing yes otherwise I would expect the sales to drop
kobra101 1:29 PM - 5 September, 2013
Is the recording still gonna be that single track recording or are you gonna at least give and option for multiy tracks? I record a lot to learn and notice mistakes but this single track is hard to actually bring back a song on. I'm just starting using serato but if this is how it's been all this time I think that needs to be changed.
DJ Compiler 1:42 PM - 5 September, 2013
This is a great move by Serato. I'm a programmer myself so I understand the huge benefits that getting the whole development team behind one product will bring to the customers. My only question is I have a reloop terminal mix 4 with the ability to send the auxiliary input to the software. Would this allow DVS to work at sometime in the future? I'm a little jealous when I see Kontrol S4 guys using vinyl and controllers at the same time.
Lux Aeterna 1:46 PM - 5 September, 2013
Same question here (not sure if the rane mixer topic was the right place):

Is it possible to map two or four buttons on the new 64 in the user layers (cue point buttons) to play buttons (and maybe pitchbend buttons too) in internal deck mode, so that you can play without turntables/cd-players and use the 64 as midicontroller standallone (sure withput the benefits of jogwheels/physical decks)?
SORIMBO 3:33 PM - 5 September, 2013
The section of pads and loops in the ddj-sx will have assigned the feature of hot loops and serato video efects as in the ddj-sp1?
The sp-1 is literally a part of the ddj-sx!
Thanks for your time.

Veejay Dullah 4:35 PM - 5 September, 2013

jesseg0304 4:48 PM - 5 September, 2013
Does this mean that my Denon DN-HC4500 will no longer work natively with Serato. Does that mean I now have to buy the CD bays and use the SL2 CD's.

If thats the case you guys suck.

Why cant you keep the mapping and compatability of the exsisting Scratch Live Hardware.

And don't give that corporate mumbo jumbo why you cant. Just state that we want to make more money and screw you DJ's.

All I can say is the Apple model only work's for awhile until the next best thing. Look at Blackberry.

If you guys dont support all of the Scratch Live hardware. I can see that VDJ will be the death of Serato. I have been seeing several Clubs using this product now and getting rid of Serato. Times are tough and the Clubs owners are not going to invest in new gear. Cheaper to buy VDJ since they support ALL DJ HARDWARE.

Serato open your eyes or you will be the next Blackberry.

You can use your TTM 57 as long as you want with SSL and as long as you have a computer that can deal with the USB 1.1 connection of your TTM 57. Serato will not release anymore updates of SSL after 2015, that's all. But you can still use it. Only if you want to use the Serato DJ Software you'll need to have an SL2, 3, 4, 61, 62, 64, 68 or any controller that is Serato DJ ready.

Hey Guys,

I think one of my questions got buried above. Any info on whether the SSL HID-mode bug that plagued all the CDJs and SSL for a long while (skips in bass-heavy environments due to vibration) have been resolved in Serato DJ HID mode? If so, I'm selling my 900's to get some 2000s asap!

The reality is no one wants to shell out another 1500 - 2000 grand for another mixer, period! especially when the one they have suites their needs. What Rane should do is come up with a updated version of the 57 that doesn't look as silly as the 61 and doesn't cost two arms & a leg and people wouldn't feel like the're being abandoned.
postal003 5:53 PM - 5 September, 2013
So as an owner of the 62, I bought the little Numark Mixtrack Pro2 as something small and expendable to take to burningman and dj for my camp. The 14 day trial of Serato DJ has now expired but I would like to continue the full use of the controller. If you are going to give me Serato DJ anyway for free in the future, can you give me a key code for it now so I don't have to use the Serato DJ Intro?

Thanks in advance.
jesseg0304 5:57 PM - 5 September, 2013
I'm used to change that’s part of my work on a day to day basis. You accept it or become s Dinosaur. Not all of us are DJ Tiesto or Guetta they can afford any gear they want. Plus Serato and Rane will probably give anything they want. For us regular guys that have invested in gear over the years that support Serato we screwed.

I don’t know about you guys but family, home food and gas come first before my toys only good thing is that I get the free upgrade since I have an SL2. Time to talk with my software folks on how to extract the mapping function from Scratch Live and incorporate them to Serato DJ.

Pretty sure there will be some kind of patch that some hacker will put together to make the existing Scratch Live Hardware/Controllers compatible with Serato DJ.
DJ Splat 6:02 PM - 5 September, 2013
The DDJ-SP1 is available from October 2013 at an SRP of EUR399 / GBP329, including VAT. Plus the DDJ-SP1 comes with a voucher for a free download of the Serato Video plug-in, worth around EUR 116/ GBP 92.

ParisCreative 7:05 PM - 5 September, 2013
Well I am a little sad to see SSL fate to the ether, but I do see a distinct advantage to a single-app solution. If I would like I could pick up a somewhat less expensive controller that could be a backup to my Rane 62 + SC3900s if something dies.
DJEyecon 7:23 PM - 5 September, 2013
Fellas listen, I'm a traveling VDJ. Unfortunately I don't ever see Serato DJ ever supporting Mix Emergency if they can help it. They would be directly taking money out of their pocket.

Martin, a few things. I remember hearing years and years ago that Serato would never have a SYNC function. Coming from a veteran DJ and long time user of your product, I get it, you want to appeal to the masses to generate more revenue. However this disappoints me. While you guys are making more money, our DJ market is crashing due to the kid who paid $200 for a controller that will DJ for a bar tab. This doesn't much affect me because I'm not playing in dive bars but it does affect genuine talented DJ's on the come up. Nevertheless this is happening and the veteran guys will just have to deal with it.

On to my question. The announcement of not implementing the bridge and mixtape (.als) function is terrible. Ableton working hand in hand with Serato was one of the biggest breakthroughs in the DJ game. I don't understand how you can eliminate the features that forced your product onto the front line. I'm going to be very honest with you right now. Mix Emergency is a far superior product compared to Serato DJ, it always has been. I understand why that isn't your concern. I'm asking you to understand the concerns and requests of the veteran guys in this thread asking for the Bridge and Mixtape. At the end of the day, it's the veterans that have supported you since you were just called "Scratch" and will continue to support you throughout the years. It's not the kid who walks into best buy that wants to be Tiesto.

Enferno doesn't use the Bridge. He uses Ableton Live and Scratch Live, but not connected in that way.

Unfortunately for fans of it, nobody much uses the Bridge at all, really. Maybe for mixtape, that's about it.

Check out the Bridge forum area sometime. Might as well be renamed 'ghost town'.

So if something had to go... Well. I can see the logic.

The DJ Intro > DJ upgrade path will remain the same.

So the Mixtrack Pro can be upgraded for the same cost as today (no new cost if you already bought the upgrade), and the Mixtrack will remain unsupported, as it is currently.

You can eighter use the SL4 with the turntables or the use the controller (if it's ready for Serato DJ) with Serato DJ, but not at the same time. The SL4 is a soundcard and the controller has an inbuilt soundcard as well...

Scratch Live will continue to work with a TTM 57SL forever, we aren't just going to shut off Scratch Live in 2015. You will still be able to download it.. it just means that in 2015 will no longer be putting out any fixes for major bugs/compatibility issues.

No, we can't do that. The cost of the Rane Sixty Two compared the Mixtrack Pro II is quite different, and so the license fee for Serato DJ isn't really included into the price of the cheaper controllers.

Sorry if this has been answered already, but will the Rane 64 work as a soundcard for SSL as well? agiprodj knows all: the answer is yes, of course it works with SSL.


No, it will not.

Will Sixty Two soundcard work with other programms when Serato DJ is open?
At this moment when SSL is open the Sixty Two is locked and that really sucks, and I have to use an extra soundcard.
Please tell me this is fixed.

Is it possible to load samples to the sp6 player direct from the Sixty Two with Serato DJ?
Or is it still drag and dropp?

If you own a mac, this will work. This is because Serato DJ will use the core audio drivers for the Sixty-Two built by Rane, and this allows more than one program to use them simultaneously.

With Windows unfortunately its not possible. Serato DJ will use ASIO drivers for the Sixty-Two, but it is a limitation of ASIO drivers that multiple programs can not access the same device simultaneously. For instance, if you are using your Sixty Two with Ableton Live, if you open Serato DJ, the software is not even allowed to recognize the Sixty Two as a device because Ableton Live has exclusivity of it.

So serato DJ 1.5.0 will be a 32bit Program?
Whereas Scratch live is 64 bit program that can handle the large library/ 1TB issue?
It doesn't seem like the most forward thinking idea..
Jam-2 3:03 AM - 6 September, 2013
Notice no response to anyone talking "upgrade path". several users chimed in with finger wagging and some valid points but nothing official ( or even semi official) from Serato. My point earlier was about getting folks to migrate. A) get SL1 hardware rounded up and have a larger pool of folks make the move to Serato DJ sooner - B) fewer SL1's on the market lessens the noise and confusion that will likely occur as a flood of "used" SL1's hit the market. Better that they get recycled. C). SL1 users aren't looking for a freebie, just a little customer friendly nudge ( by way of an official Migration program) and it's a great marketing opportunity. an exclusive migration poster and/or promotional T-Shirt showing a DJ Coffin, inside is an SL-1 with a plaque "Scratch Live : 2004 - 2015 Tag line: " Celebrate Life with Serato DJ " - which is exactly what DJs and Music do, they help people celebrate life. - when was the last time you saw someone spinning at a funeral?

Eloy Garcia 3:09 AM - 6 September, 2013
I'm going to try to stay positive, but to be honest I saw this coming! We were dealing with this a year ago and here we are again again again! I can't believe that Serato is going to start this crap again with the video DJ's. When Serato takes the time to build a quality high end video software like MixEmergency then I will be satisfied. Where are all the updates that you guys promised for Serato Video we still don't have anything new and mind blowing Serato! Don't make me go to your office and bang on your doors please Serato! No bridge support to come on now..... This is a fail to me a big fail!!!!!

Untrue. Scratch Live is a 32bit application.

Moving towards a unified codebase and one software to focus on will allow us to fix these kinds of issues though. Something that wouldn't have been possible with Scratch Live.

All of Serato's products are 32bit. Also, the Large Library issue has been experienced on Itch, SeratoDJ & ScratchLIVE. I personally haven't experienced it, but I've read enough posts on this forum to know as much.

Thanks for the correction..
From previous forums I was under the impression scratch was 64 and DJ was 32..

Well then I gots nothing more to complain about.. Looking forward to the upgrade then..

i am wondering now that Scratchlive is being replaced with serato dj
an is a free upgrade to persons who currently own the SL2-3-4 and mixers
what happens now to those same persons who might have purchased a controller
that works with Serato DJ??? i owned an SL1 sold it as soon as i heard about SL2
still have my SL2 an i recently purchased a pioneer/serato dj compatable controller
would i an the many other SL owner's be afforded the priviledge of havin our compatable an supported
controllers working seeing that it will be a free upgrade to the SL hardware owner's???
or will there still be that cost to have it working???? an if so i find that absurd to a certain extent
now thats its goin to be free....ps keep up the good work

Translation:

Pro Video DJ's don't make up enough of our customer base for us to be worried about losing you. We know you we make the best DVS and your only option for video is a program considered by most to be the kiddy DJ program. We also know 40% will jump back to us if we hold out long enough and the last 60% will either stay with SSL or do something else.


Martin even a little false hope that Serato Video might get an update with even half of the features ME currently posses would be nice.

And on another point. I found it very interesting that Sam was on a video explaining Serato's path. I appreciate that and I noticed he addressed many things are brought up on the forum regularly. It almost felt like well watching that video Serato cared for once. I was really happy, but then again we see details about Serato's expansion plans and we find them very lacking. You decided to support select Midi controllers but not other ones from SSL (i'm pissed about no CDJ2k MK1 HID Mode) yet you add that silly vestex controller for effects thats now incorrectly labeled.

I have more to say but I need to start playing Videos with ME at my res.
Craig Dalzell 7:31 AM - 6 September, 2013
Sad to see ScratchLive being fazed out but the improvements in the software are a step in the right direction, i'll definitely be buying a DJ-SP1 as it has all the functions my Dicers,Denon & VFX-1 have in 1 stand alone controller, this is great news for me however i also run an APC20 with "The Bridge" but until it's supported i'll be sticking to ScratchLive

Come on guys we need "The Bridge" in SeratoDJ!!

Yeah, well you better have a spare $400 to throw at it. Hell, for that price you would be better suited to save the additional $400-$500 and just buy a DDJ-SX. Frankly, I am shocked at how much that "MIDI" controller is gonna' cost. I thought no more than $250, which would have been a viable option to those that have older controllers, or for those whom have TTs/CDJs & a "supported" Mixer that would want to utilize the full feature spectrum of what SeratoDJ has to offer.

Sorry, but $400 is ABSOLUTELY ridiculous!!!

This isn't really a stab against Serato per se, but a slight against Pioneer for being so greedy.

Can allow Mix Emergency to be a plug-in that requires a fee/purch of Serato Video to work

there will never be a logical reason to not have the users of your product to give you money for something that costs you literally NOTHING. 100% Profit. 0 cost.

there will never be a logical reason to not have the users of your product (be then the top, most visable users in the industry) have the absolute best, so when new potential customers see them they HAVE to buy your product.

Why exactly won't the ddjsx or any controller with equivalent serato dj soundcards support DVS now that this will all be merged.

Is this a loophole you guys have locked for finanical reasons because theoretically this should be possible now.
Mike Czech 10:49 PM - 6 September, 2013
Chalk me up as another SSL user (since 2005) who has come to absolutely rely on the Bridge Mixtape function in my workflow. The ability to record both channels discretely is a must. Not sure what happened between the 2 companies but The Bridge was really DOA, it never got the type of promotional push that it really needed. Search the web for Bridge tutorial videos and there's barely a handful.

Please figure out some type of solution going forward.

Thank you.

Honestly, just scratch Serato Video and tack on a fee for us to use Mix Emergency. That way you can focus on making Serato DJ a better product and don't have to worry about us complaining about how old and outdated Serato Video is, or just buy out the program from Nick.

This is not that complicated of an issue stop playing politricks and get it done already.

Hey mate, that controller isn't supported natively in Serato DJ but you will be able to connect it as a MIDI controller when your SL 3 is supported as it's got a hardware mixer too. You can't map the platters though.

I know Serato hates hearing this, but PLEASE allow M.E via a paid plugin. You allow it with Izotope for "better effects" let's apply the same to video. I am, BTW, happy to ride for SV if it combines the same stability and quality output as M.E., I really don't use it for any other reason.

Understandable. I know I voiced that rather strong, but it's the truth on how we feel about the situation. I already own both programs and I am willing to pay a plugin fee to adapt mix emergency with serato dj. It's all money at the end of the day and if were willing to pay for it I think it should at least be considered and debated.

The SL 1 was discontinued 3 years ago when the SL 2 was released. It'd been pretty old hardware for a while now and has had a very long life with a LOT of development added over the years. It'll still do everything it does now. It's just not up to it technically to be supported in Serato DJ now and in the future.

it seems serato dj inherited ssl look, with spinning platters and all...

however as long time itch user, i always loved its "simpler" and much cleaner views without any ginormous white circles with spinning line that mean nothing to me as i am not a turnatibilist (like i am sure a lot of users aren't),
my favorite of them all was the "stacked players" view, where we had 2 (or 4, if the setup allowed it) players stacked on top of each other (here is a small screenshot from your site: i.sera.to)

this was much more useful on a 13 display, as it allowed to have players, fx and browser big enough to be useful and workable without having to change view to browser mode

can we ever expect these cleaner player modes in serato dj?

I am very disappointed to see that you will not be supporting the HID mode on the CDJ900s right out of the box. I can't see how the code to read the signal from those could be any different than that of the CDJ-2000. Support for the 900 and 2000 came out at the same time for SSL. It's a shame that I will have to keep using SSL until HID support for the 900's is released. I'm not going to spend an extra $3500-$4000 for a pair of new glorified midi controlers (2000s)

I cant understand why everybody is so angry? If you have your setup right now, and it works, there's no meaning to bother with Serato DJ. Its logical that if you want something new, you have to buy it. And if you really want do dj with your SL1 till the end of time, you have to do it with corresponding software, and its your matter you dont want to invest in a new equipment.

I paid $800 for my SL1 when they first came out and It never worked on my pc correctly I spend over a grand just to figure out I needed a Mac then I paid $700 for a SL3 and $500 for a Behringer DDM440, $600 for a Ipad, $20.00 for Serato Remote $500 For Ableton Live to use the bridge. I don't think you guys care how much we spend to use your products but I PAID so I sound like the top tier DJ's I don't get freebies, I pay for my own music, try to make my own also but this is crazy. How much more I gotta spend to make this @!#@ work properly! PS. I know you gonna say deal with it - I should have use Virtual DJ like all the other no talent DJs...........

WTF? I bought my SL1 in 2005 for $545, and my SL3 in 2009 for $574!! hate to break it to you, but you got ripped the fuck off!!! I could see if you were in Australia or sumpin', but your profile says you're in Brooklyn.

Maybe you are unaware, but the SL1 & 57SL run on USB 1.1....it's a miracle that Serato have managed to support it as long as they have. Those two products have had a very long, and fulfilling lifespan, but it's past the time to retire the two. If you don't like how wide the 62 is, why not buy a dedicated scratch mixer, and use it with an SL3, that way you can still record?

As for your existing 57 & SL1, my suggestion is to EBay them within the next week......hopefully you can cash in on the ignorant people that don't frequent the forums.

Half the supported Serato controllers either meet, exceed, or cost double the price of an SL box.

I have bought a terminal mix 4 package including serato dj and video full license, now i would like to sell only the controller and replace it with a denon mc2000 plus a real dvs system (64). Is it possible to sell the terminal mix without licence and still use the full licence from it on the denon mc2000 (or any other only intro-including controller)? I got a voucher with serial number to terminal mix 4, put the number in, but can't see the licence number on my user panel when logged in, but controller works since starting first time in full dj version.

****************
Have had the SX since launch and am very happy with it and has improved my workflow no end with the pads for loops and efx knobs.

My only glitch with it so far is no being able to name the cue points (which I love with SSL).

Looking forward to using the SP1 as this takes all of the good stuff above onto the road for gigs... but why bring out this controller before the SSL/DJ crossover - as 90% of users will be ex-SSL surely?

Glad to see the forum post I made a few years back concerning giving users the choice to pay for premium 'FX' and features, developing a new platform SSL style software (created without Rane to work with other partners) etc all came around in the end... just need to sort that master tempo algo out (Rane plug-in anyone?) and we are all good :)

Really happy with the Serato direction over the past 12 months, keep up the good work.

Nothing happened to SSL, you need to learn about anaylzing songs in SSL, set BPM range and how to double the BPMs or half the BPMs.

The 64 works with SDJ and has a sync button. The 68 works with SSL and has Jolly Rancher cue buttons
J.J. 7:09 PM - 7 September, 2013
LOL Jolly Rancher.

• From a feature standpoint, the Sixty-Four loses the SPDIF inputs that the Sixty-Eight has.
Digital I/O for session in and out.
• Indicators on each of the control strips to show which decks are assigned to that strip.
• The USB assignment is now handled on the mixer instead of in software so that it is much more intuitive for hand-off/DJ Change over (like the Sixty-Two)
• Now able to send separate midi messages to each USB port
• Uses ASIO/Core Audio drivers which are multi-client (can have multiple midi devices connected). Also supports midi stop/start messages and midi beat clock. Midi follows USB assignment.
• Improved Hardware effects

There are no current plans to natively support the MEP7000 in Serato DJ. However this could always change in the future.

I just want you guys to fix the large library bug so that I can actually use SDJ. I'm still using Intro because I can't even start the software for the trial without it crashing. If Serato can fix this they can have my $130. That is the only thing that's keeping me from buying it.

Will the NS7ii be able to activate a saved loop without jumping to it? Don't tell me we are going to have the VCI-380 disaster all over again (take a full year to add 1 feature).

On the NS7ii, how do you expand/contract a crate? Usually, this is done with the back button. I read the manual and its not in there. Also, how do you beat jump forward and reverse since its not a static platter.

For everyone concerned about the bridge, I wouldn't be too worried. In the future it looks like most of this functionality like triggering synced samples will be possible with a more sophisticated sample player from WITHIN the program itself. No more running ableton and serato at the same time. Less clutter. Greater stability. More simplicity. Well done serato. Great move.

yeah right. if you use the bridge you would've been worried along time ago. bridge talk has been dead for quite some time. the fact that its not available with sdj tells me that there are no plans for it in the future.

right now sp-6 can't do shit and based on serato's track record it will be long time before sp-6 can even be considered a replacement for the bridge, if at all.

i love the merge of both software but leaving out key ssl functionality is a huge fail.

I'd just like to add that I'd be absolutely furious if there wasn't HID support for the 900s as I specifically purchased those so I could use them with ScratchLive with the expectation that Serato would support them! I purchased those so I'd have HID support, so not only would I have to upgrade my interface from my SL1 (which I'm relatively ok with), I'd have to upgrade my decks - that would be very upsetting!

I don't mind if they aren't initially supported as that's an unrealistic expectation - I'm fine if I have to wait 'till the end of 2015 because I'll just keep using ScratchLive during that time. But if/when you do implement them, please implement the pitch interval in the same fashion as pioneer as the current 0.015% implementation is really bad.

And yeah, I get that I can stay with ScratchLive, but that's not a realistic long-term solution because operating systems change and break software. And I know you keep saying 2015, making it sound like a lot of time, but that's only a year a half away - my 900s are only a few years old and have another 10 years of life in them.

Thanks,
Mike

How will Serato DJ 1.5/1.6 DVS mode work with a VCI-380 in stand alone mixer mode?


It's very early days I am sure and the devs are working like crazy, but I would like clarification on this as it was touted as a feature of the 380.

I understand that DIRECT DVS support may come in the future for some controllers which will be GREAT... but, I do very much like using my 380 and an SL1 with SSL for DVS. I don't have a standalone mixer at home (very limited space in an apartment).

Is it planned that the VCI-380 will be able to be used with SDJ DVS and an SL2 in analog mixer mode?

I have some concerns that there will be conflicts between the devices and SDJ might get confused about which device is controlling payback and where to route audio. When the channels are flicked to Line-in, all controls seem to still send MIDI, but the hardware filter takes over the FX knob. Not a big deal..

Perhaps Serato could chime in before I go and upgrade my SL1 to an SL2 (which could be pointless if this doesn't work).

Quote from my earlier post.....

"Fellas listen, I'm a traveling VDJ. Unfortunately I don't ever see Serato DJ ever supporting Mix Emergency if they can help it. They would be directly taking money out of their pocket.

Martin, a few things. I remember hearing years and years ago that Serato would never have a SYNC function. Coming from a veteran DJ and long time user of your product, I get it, you want to appeal to the masses to generate more revenue. However this disappoints me. While you guys are making more money, our DJ market is crashing due to the kid who paid $200 for a controller that will DJ for a bar tab. This doesn't much affect me because I'm not playing in dive bars but it does affect genuine talented DJ's on the come up. Nevertheless this is happening and the veteran guys will just have to deal with it.

On to my question. The announcement of not implementing the bridge and mixtape (.als) function is terrible. Ableton working hand in hand with Serato was one of the biggest breakthroughs in the DJ game. I don't understand how you can eliminate the features that forced your product onto the front line. I'm going to be very honest with you right now. Mix Emergency is a far superior product compared to Serato DJ, it always has been. I understand why that isn't your concern. I'm asking you to understand the concerns and requests of the veteran guys in this thread asking for the Bridge and Mixtape. At the end of the day, it's the veterans that have supported you since you were just called "Scratch" and will continue to support you throughout the years. It's not the kid who walks into best buy that wants to be Tiesto."

Martin can you please address this? Thanks

You defending the SYNC feature speaks volumes of your DJ ability. I see what you are doing here. Comparing my statements to imply I'm not a "real" DJ. Which is fine. I don't understand what feature of Mixtape you don't consider a breakthrough. This isn't about "fixing my mixes", it adds a completely different aspect of production that you obviously don't understand. I encourage you to visit my SoundCloud @realdjeyecon, check out my credentials and then come back to run your mouth off. However it would better accommodate my needs for you to go be an asshole elsewhere. I'm not addressing you or anyone other than Serato.

Fab I've been learning this craft since I was 12 years old. Before anyone ever heard of Tiesto. You should study the art as well as the world around it.

1)I've never seen a crowd cheer a dj for a successful beatmatch.

2)Imho, someone who does not even know how to beatmatch dance musique (with such a basic structure) won't be able to use the sync, set or adjust a beatgrid... (imho) its not a skill but something that anyone with a minimum of capacity of hearing and a bit of practice can do.

3)the huge wavefroms (even though i love them) are wrost than sync.

I start djing few years ago with two crappy cdj 200 and TTs, even though i still use true vinyls (no cue point, no waveform... no time display, just furrows) i also use sync button as a tool and I've never asked myself if it was good or bad.

You defending the SYNC feature speaks volumes of your DJ ability. I see what you are doing here. Comparing my statements to imply I'm not a "real" DJ. Which is fine. I don't understand what feature of Mixtape you don't consider a breakthrough. This isn't about "fixing my mixes", it adds a completely different aspect of production that you obviously don't understand. I encourage you to visit my SoundCloud @realdjeyecon, check out my credentials and then come back to run your mouth off. However it would better accommodate my needs for you to go be an asshole elsewhere. I'm not addressing you or anyone other than Serato.


Insecure much?

Sync can be used to cover up poor mixing.

It can also be used add a completely different aspect of mixing that you obviously don't understand...

....exactly like Mixtape.

No. What I was doing was comparing your statements to demonstrate the hypocrisy of making them both together. A very different thing.

+1 for DDJ-SX Timecode/DVS support.

and let's get the bridge going with the mixtape feature.

I'd settle for a serato mixtape feature too that works like the bridge or better than the bridge.

these peeps complaining about their 10+year old outdated hardware not working with the latest and greatest, should have used all of this energy to research the product out there and figure out what was discontinued and what was a better upgrade or purchase for them....

Because you cheap'd out and bought the old used or old discontinued product, isn't serato's fault... WHAT DID YOU EXPECT???

What's next... people buying original iPhones from 06 and complaining that ios7 doesn't run on them? lol

Fab I've been learning this craft since I was 12 years old. Before anyone ever heard of Tiesto. You should study the art as well as the world around it. Had you have done that you would have read a very recognizable "DJ's" statement concerning the current electronic scene. How he compared it to McDonalds with all these "producers" today. Perhaps you as well should investigate others credentials before making such as ignorant statement. Or, I invite you as well to go be an asshole elsewhere. I'm not addressing you.


Speaking of ignorant. It went completely over your head that I do get it and it is some of you who need to get your heads out of your asses. That 'very recognizable DJ statement' is that of those who refuse to admit they once walked eagerly into a new world with little money in hand and took what they could get. Tiesto of all people who worked the back room of a dive bar (probably undercutting and taking free drinks while using the house equipment!) is an arrogant prick and in no position to speculate on others while hovering at his level of hypocrisy and narcissism. Even he admits that a trend sparked his enthusiasm in DJ'n! Now excuse me while I go bang some molly'd out supermodels, slap my name on a pair of headphones and play role model. /Tiesto

Cannot upgrade to Serato DJ until you fix the out of memory bug for users with large song databases. Cannot start the program without it crashing. Itch 2.2 is fine.

When will you fix this out of memory bug & allow serato to utilize a computer's memory appropriately?

I don't see how you apply your original statement to you "getting it". This "recognizable DJ" is in the top 20 highest paid DJ's category. I've never undercut anyone. I've never played for free drinks. I'm never done a "show" for $50 and I never will. People doing that is one of the issues within this industry. Those "DJ's" make it impossible for veteran guys to raise their prices. I honestly don't give a damn about your opinion, or Bob's. I didn't repost my initial concerns for anyone but Serato support. Now this thread is off on a tangent about NOTHING related to the initial post. It would make my day for you to go argue with someone else, however you aren't going to do that. So post away, I'm not responding.

Now, Serato, can you please address my post? Sticking with Scratch Live is not a viable option for the future. I'm supported your product, and only your product since 2006. I'm a member of the SCVCG group. I've spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on CV alone. I do not want to argue with anyone, I would just like to hear your position. Thanks.

The problem some users have with very large libraries will be resolved in Serato DJ. Maybe not in the next update but having one platform to focus all our development into will allow us to do this.

DJEyecon 11:38 PM - 9 September, 2013
Thank you Sam. Here's the original post....


"Fellas listen, I'm a traveling VDJ. Unfortunately I don't ever see Serato DJ supporting Mix Emergency if they can help it. They would be directly taking money out of their pocket.

Martin, a few things. I remember hearing years and years ago that Serato would never have a SYNC function. Coming from a veteran DJ and long time user of your product, I get it, you want to appeal to the masses to generate more revenue. However this disappoints me. While you guys are making more money, our DJ market is crashing due to the kid who paid $200 for a controller that will DJ for a bar tab. This doesn't much affect me because I'm not playing in dive bars but it does affect genuine talented DJ's on the come up. Nevertheless this is happening and the veteran guys will just have to deal with it.

On to my question. The announcement of not implementing the bridge and mixtape (.als) function is terrible. Ableton working hand in hand with Serato was one of the biggest breakthroughs in the DJ game. I don't understand how you can eliminate the features that forced your product onto the front line. I'm going to be very honest with you right now. Mix Emergency is a far superior product compared to Serato DJ, it always has been. I understand why that isn't your concern. I'm asking you to understand the concerns and requests of the veteran guys in this thread asking for the Bridge and Mixtape. At the end of the day, it's the veterans that have supported you since you were just called "Scratch" and will continue to support you throughout the years. It's not the kid who walks into best buy that wants to be Tiesto."

I've said this a few times around the place but basically, there is no news that we have to share about the future of The Bridge right now.

It's not supported in Serato DJ currently. I can't say either way what will happen, it's not certain now sorry. What is certain is that we still love the product and don't want to abandon it. We have been in the process of speaking to a lot of DJs at a lot of different levels that use it currently to find out what works at the moment and what doesn't, what is amazing and what's lame so we can figure out the next steps.

When there is news about the future, we will announce it. Sorry to be vague :(

msoultan 11:59 PM - 9 September, 2013
I hate these kinds of answers from companies! Of course you have an idea - you're just choosing not to communicate it. And most likely you don't want to give an answer because that's what your customers will hold you to (as they should), but not giving answers is far worse - the only reason not to say anything is to be so ambiguous that the customer can't complain about the feature coming to fruition and it buys you some time - but it's false time.

It's times like this where customers question whether they want to stay with a company. I bought into Serato years ago, and now I'm seriously questioning whether I'll stay. It's not a threat, it's just a reality due to the Serato's ambiguity.
Culprit 12:01 AM - 10 September, 2013
The good thing about this thread is we are getting responses and now Serato (Sam) knows what we want and hopefully we can make this happen along down the line. Keep an open mind!
msoultan 12:08 AM - 10 September, 2013
I really like lack of ambiguity! One thing Serato has been great at telling me is "it's been submitted". I know people are busy, but there's nothing customers hate more than not having even a rough idea when something's gonna come about, or if never, at least let me know that. But if you're purposely not telling me whether a feature is going to be fixed or implemented just because you want to keep me on-board, that's very bad PR.

Let me rephrase.

Any plans for updated RANE hardware to support Serato DJ, for cues/fxs etc.
J.J. 4:56 AM - 10 September, 2013
I doubt any new hardware will be announced. The updated RANE hardware was the 64 that was announced. I would love a RANE controller with Direct Drive Platters!

However, the RANE 62 will be fully supported in Serato DJ with 1.6. The Cues, Sampler and Effects will still work. The Cues have 4 other layers that can trigger anything in Serato DJ like Effects, Loop Rolls, SLIP Mode, Video etc. You can even assign any button in MIDI on the mixer to do something else. For instance, if you really love the iZotope FX over Ranes, you can use the FX section to control the software FX (even post fader). Just don't hit the ON button or FLEX FX to engage the hardware FX.

musicoholic 1:33 AM - 13 September, 2013
Right now I use my Denon DN-HD2500 to control my Serato Scratch Live and get the audio from the SL2.

Will the new Serato Version be able to have midi control with the HD-2500 (including the jog wheels, of course)?
J.J. 4:30 PM - 13 September, 2013
musicoholic, I asked if the DN-HC4500 was going to be supported in Serato DJ like it is in Scratch Live. STILL NO RESPONSE. The Pioneer older discontinued players are eventually getting support, so why not the HC4500?

Serato stopped supporting the HD2500 with SSL 2.3. It will still work in Scratch Live, but if there is a bug, it will not be fixed.

Are the Denon DN-HD2500, Numark iCDX and DMC2 still supported as native controllers in Scratch Live? serato.com
With the release of Scratch Live 2.3, the Denon DN-HD2500, Numark iCDX and Numark DMC2 are no longer supported as native controllers. This means we will no longer be developing for these controllers.
The last release to support these controllers is Scratch Live 2.2.
Culprit 6:59 PM - 13 September, 2013
musicoholic 7:47 PM - 13 September, 2013
I don't get why we will be forced to change our controllers. With new controller models I do understand because there's no mapping at all and meas extra work to make the software compatible with and specific model, but why deny the contro functions to the models that were already supported, the mapping code it's already done, and they were previously aproved by serato. I hate to compare but In Virtual DJ in case the controller is not natively supported, you have the option to map all the button from your controller, even the jog wheels and button lights. I hope we can have some response from Serato so we can verify this.
musicoholic 11:37 PM - 13 September, 2013
Before anyone says "if you have any problem keep using the version that works best for you" I need to be clear that we are not actually been forced to change controler, but our existing one (Denon HD-2500 in my case) might be or not be (Serato people please confirm) useless if you want to use the new software version.

If someone buys a piece of hardware( lets say a CDJ-1000) and the device works as advertized then there is no obligation for the company to continue to add support and updates for years to come for that product. The product did what it said it would do when you bought it, period. We have become spoiled with how long Serato has been doing updates for free. So much so that many of us think it is our RIGHT to have continued support. The SL1 and TTM57(and many others) will still work with the existing software version you have, which is a much better software than when either one of those products came out,which means you have a much better product than what you originally agreed to pay for so quit bitching!

I don't understand all the djs that pull out a stack of money for a Macbook Pro, but refuse to sell their SL1 and get an SL2, 3 or 4 instead. It's called technical progress and now you see the result, your SL1 doesn't make it into the newer software. I sold my SL1 that moment, when the SL3 came out and got the SL3 instead.

even if you're using mp3's? I would think one would have to be using AIFF or WAV to be able to notice, and the 32bit on the SRT, I think the only way you'd be able to tell the difference is on say a FUNKTION-ONE system or something similar...

YES!

The dynamic range on any other serato box over the SL1 and TTM57 is night and day.

Cool thanks for the info... I've just been booking up my SL1 box to my 900 Nexus... Guess ill grab either the SRT or just an SL4... Maybe both and keep the SRT at home and rent out the Nexus like I've been doing.

I knew it was time to upgrade from the sl1, and now I can control 3/4 decks I'm not at all upset about this update... I do wish the nexus could be compatible with a firmware update but its not the end or the world...
Joshua Carl 6:09 PM - 17 September, 2013
its most certainly noticable.

one could argue that sitting there side by side not everyone could hear it.
but here was one of the "oh... really" moments for me.

my friday spot see's 4-5 DJs a week usually.
most of which bring an SL 1, or until recently use the clubs provided SL1

after 3 weeks with the 62 I had 3 bartenders, the owner and the GM ask why the other DJs all sound like shit...
literally, verbatim.

now obviously some guys can sound excellent on a SL1/57
I know that, you know that... many of us did for year, many people STILL DO!
but its not the first and last time Ive had people who i would generally never weigh their opinion on DJ life valid all said the same thing.
Personally I noticed when I did not have my 62 for a few weeks and had to use my 57 in leu of it... did the people over those two weeks notice? probably not.
but I noticed, was it night and day? not really... but it was certainly noticable.


I would wager between the sound card and the new design (or some would say very old) for attenuated output of the master has really given the user the ability to sound excellent (if they follow the rules) which makes the mixer worthy of the upgrade alone.

Ive mentioned this in other threads.
If your doing pubs through a handfull of powered speakers, or rockin a few gigs a month is it paramount that u start eating ramen noodles to get hardware with a 24bit sound card? prob not.
but if you have some mid-large rooms with an actual soundsystem, or even a tiny lounge with an excellent sound system, you might seriously consider it.
its all relevant to your exact needs.
Jensen Määäm 6:39 PM - 17 September, 2013
If you are happy with your SL1/TTM 57, keep using it with SSL, it will still work.
When a dj makes money, see getting newer hardware and getting rid of older hardware as an investment, you make money with it!
Try to get higher quality soundfiles as well.

How long do you think before we see an update to match the 32bit soundcard from the SRT on the sl4?

I use the SL4 in Clubs, and the DDJ-SX for Radio or other, and also @ some Gigs i Use the CDJ-850 in Midi/Hid Mode.
I've hoped, that now SDJ 1.5 will be the only Soft in future, but now i read, it is'nt so... No CDJ Support other than 2000..... Why? All serato users good earners??
It is a must have CDJ-2000???
Please Serato, make it possible in other releases to use all CDJ's that are now supportet by Scratch Live!

And bring the Cover Art in SDJ :)

Hey viper9711

1 month ago I would have said huh?

But with ios7 being able to so easily rate your music on the fly, having a 5 star Colin would be excellent.

Basically I start compiling music and listen to it all week on my iPad/iPhone
And rate it, just out of habit now.

Maybe once the iPad app gets some sort of library integration there is no way to any homework AWAY from your gig computer.
This would be a nice step forward in playlist/library management

Function SLICER Serato DJ.
I have a Numark NS7FX, how can I do to perform the function in Slicer Searto DJ, this function is part of controlling as the Pioneer DDJ-SX (in the pad).
Is to perform this function by TouchOSC ...? ... How do the combination of buttons function Slicer by TouchOSC ...?

Aaron E 9:46 PM - 25 September, 2013
Thanks for the feedback guys, I'll make sure iTunes ratings are part of library discussions going forward.

@rickpocos

I'm afraid there is currently no way to get Slicer functionality using your NS7FX or TouchOSC. The one thing you could do at this point is invest in some new hardware - for example upgrade to an NS7 MKII or add a Pioneer DDJ-SP1 to unlock this and other functionality.

Cheers

That a good sigh, a bad sigh, or a 'I can relate' sigh? LOL. The only thing that lured me into SDJ was the FX expansion, but my workflow is built up around the VFX mapping to ITCH. I dunno if they broke it all and plan to fix it, or if this is permanent. =\
Aaron E 3:03 AM - 27 September, 2013
Hey FabulousFrequencies

Good questions. The way effects work in SDJ is of course a bit different to how they worked in ITCH, so there are some inherent differences in the way the VFX-1 has to behave in them.

There are some things we can look at changing though if we get enough feedback about particular mappings. Start a Feature Suggestion with specifically how you would like it to work and then drop the link in this thread and I'll go and track it so I can bring it up in discussions.

Cheers
FabulousFrequencies 3:18 AM - 27 September, 2013
I appreciate your address, Aaron. But i'm not sure how to digest it.

The latch:

This is a hardware switch. It's on the side of the unit, enables FX 'latch' or 'momentary' activate. SDJ has rendered it completely unused. Completely... Unused.. It does the equivalent of zero now. You toggle it, and nothing happens.

Param 2 (MOD x2):

This is the secondary function of the MOD button by pressing down on the same button that adjusts param 1. Push down, turn to adjust param 2. Param 2 is in front of my face in the software, but pushing down activates a brake effect? It does nothing to param 2 now.

-------------------

The issue I have with the response is that you're talking about 'forced' changes of hardware behavour due to software changes. However (and this is where this makes no sense) ITCH never had a latch section of the FX panel, it was just an internal function tied to the VFX switch that is now missing. Furthermore param 2 didn't vanish, it's right in front of my face only now I get to push the knob down and watch something else change. These 2 changes in particular are not purposeful changes and are not forced by workflow changes to the software.

So given that, I am asking politely once more; Decision / Broken ?

Thank you.
Aaron E 4:14 AM - 27 September, 2013

FabulousFrequencies 4:31 AM - 27 September, 2013
I know I come off as a smug, arrogant, #@!#@ at times, but I do meal well. Would just like my FX unit to work right again. A 'forced' change was FX chaining each bank to 2 decks, but this change augments the controller ability. Changes like that i'll get use to although i'm sure i'll have a few accidents. Buttons that do nothing I will not get use to.

If the answers come back to the effect of 'stfu and stop whining' can you at least tell me if we'll be able to re-map already mapped controller functions in the future? I suppose 'native reassignment' might be a good way to put it?

I have found a bug in connection with the Vestax VCI-400:
The FX ON / OFF LED-allocation in the software does not match the controller button LED´s . Please check the Marix, then you will see what I mean. The Led Buttons FX1-4 on the Controller shows it right, but the display of the FX unit in the software does not.

Can you please fix it in the next Update?
Aaron E 8:46 PM - 29 September, 2013
I'm afraid I'm not really sure what you are saying there viper9711.

I've just tested the VCI-400 and everything is working as it should with the controller LEDs and FX ON/OFF (and assign) in Serato DJ. If you think your controller is not behaving as it should, you may need to look at re-installing your firmware as a first step.

Starting a help thread is the best way to get this sort of thing attended to going forward.

I really hope you add some more aids to mixing deck 1 & 3 beatmatching or deck 1 & 4 for SL3/SL4 hardware into SDJ. Without having the waveforms (horizontally for me) stacked next to each other, it makes a lot harder to visually mix with 3 or 4 decks when only utilising the 1 and 3rd or 1st and 4th decks. Been requesting this a long time !! There are a few ways you could add it.. please confirm to me that this issue will be addressed.. you mention more screen real estate, this has been one of the main reasons along with the 1st & 4th deck beatmatching visually issue that has kept me from upgrading from SL3 to SL4 (the only real advantage of SL4 for me would be easier plug in and outs at gigs with average 4 input mixer and setups, 2x CDJ and 2x turntables. But that's not enough of a selling point on its own.

So for my SL3 which I upgraded to from an SL1, I really want to have visual control or some more visual aids (such as waveforms extending over the unused / unloaded/ejected track deck(s) in the middle) or the ability for a setting to 'hide' decks with no track loaded when in 3/4 deck mode on SL3/SL4 for SDJ.

PLEASE help me with this. Just spent a fortune on a Xone 92, another 1200, mods and repairs and services, and some Ikea stuff, to get a 3x turntable full position set up in my room, so can finally stop using CDJ or internal for 3rd channel. So finally I will be able to mix a bit better 3x decks WITHOUT visual aids, however I've been longing for these for a long time to make SSL/future 1.5 and up SDJ to work better, so I'm really disappointed my years of feature request have gone pretty much ignored

I have asked for the same beatmatch visualization the present set up make 4 deck mixing cumbersome and a right pain in the arse I think this is a must have function so come on serato lets get it on!

Will my Vestax 380 work with the original scratch live box and coded vinyl with DJ 1.5.1
J.J. 4:13 PM - 30 October, 2013
The original Scratch Live box was renamed SL1. It uses USB 1.1 and will NOT be supported in Serato DJ. So no DVS Vinyl support.

However, your Vestax 380 is fully supported in Serato DJ. You need to request DVS support for this controller so you can hook up a Timecode signal. The official Serato view on controllers supporting Timecode is they will look into it in a future Serato DJ version if the controller supports it.

Because then the exclusivity deals Serato has made with hardware manufacturers would be useless. Philip, don't get it wrong. Any midi controller could do it.

Doesn't the mixtrack pro 2 have these effects? This ain't a high end controller. Don't know how it would compare to the ddj sx tho, pioneer also have a stand alone pad controller out now also :) just a couple of options. But like code:E stated deals have been done!

Hello,

excuse my english, I hope I ask my questions right.

I picked up a Pioneer DJM900SRTNexus. I was not aware of it, that it comes with timecod vinyl. But I like it. I use(d) SDJ 1.3 with the Numark NS6 in the past. My questions I couldn't find an answer to it are:

1. Am I right with this: I can't set a cue point with the timecode-vinyl like on a midicontroller (hitting the cue point button)? This has to be done on the computer only?

2. Can I control all 4 channels with only 2 turntables hooked up to the 900SRT mixer (like on the midicontroller)? Is there a special cable available?

3. If I connect a DDJ-SP1 can I load tracks to all 4 channels of the SDJ 1.5.? If I have only 2 turntables hooked up, but I want to play a digital track on a channel where the turntable is not connected to, is there a cue/play-button on the DDJ-SP1 for it or do I have to use my mouse (INT-Mode) to play it?

4. When I have to play a club that has no 900SRT, what external Serato-product do I have to use/buy that does with SDJ 1.5 work in the future? Does the Timecode-CD work on all CD-Player brands when a Interface is hooked up.

Many thanks for a reply (link or other infos), and sorry my english.

If I have only 2 turntables hooked up, but I want to play a digital track on a channel where the turntable is not connected to, is there a cue/play-button on the DDJ-SP1 for it or do I have to use my mouse (INT-Mode) to play it?

4. When I have to play a club that has no 900SRT, what external Serato-product do I have to use/buy that does with SDJ 1.5 work in the future? Does the Timecode-CD work on all CD-Player brands when a Interface is hooked up.

Many thanks for a reply (link or other infos), and sorry my english.

Alexander


- If the club does not have a Rane device which can be used with SSL or SDJ, you'll need to bring one. If you want to use SDJ, you need a controller, the DJM 900 SRT or the Rane 64. With the release of SDJ 1.6 you will be able to use an SL2, 3, 4 or a Rane 61, 62 or 68 as well with SDJ.
- The control CDs work pretty much on all the CD Players out there, you need a piece of Rane hardware, to use them, of course.
- With turntables you can only control 2 decks in your SDJ software, you'll have to use the other 2 decks in internal mode.

Hi DJAlexander,

Quote:
1. Am I right with this: I can't set a cue point with the timecode-vinyl like on a midicontroller (hitting the cue point button)? This has to be done on the computer only?

There are no buttons on the control tone vinyl record, so you will not be able to set a cue point. You will need to connect a separate MIDI controller or use the computer. The DJM900-SRT does not have cue point buttons.

2. Can I control all 4 channels with only 2 turntables hooked up to the 900SRT mixer (like on the midicontroller)? Is there a special cable available?

There is no layer switching option when using turntables, you will only be able to control 2 decks. You can still have the other two decks playing in INT mode.

There are no Cue/Play buttons on the DDJ-SP1 so you will not be able to control 2 decks with this controller, it is made to expand on the effects, loops and cue points that the DJM900-SRT does not have. You could possibly map to control decks using a custom mapping, but it does not work like this natively.

Once Serato DJ 1.6 is released, you will need to use a Rane SL 2, SL 3 or SL 4 box if you wish to use control tone records or CD's if the club does not have a DJM900-SRT.

Will my Vestax 380 work with the original scratch live box and coded vinyl with DJ 1.5.1

No sorry, this will not be possible as the original SL 1 is not going to be supported in Serato DJ.

This will be possible with Serato DJ 1.6+ and an SL 2, 3 or 4, but you will not be able to control the virtual decks with the VCI-380 platters, the VCI-380 will function solely as an internal mixer.

Scott,

Can I make a feature request? Can we get Serato DJ to support multiple audio streams in 1 MP4 container, kind of like how dvd/blue ray players have separate audio for different languages? That would save us video guys a tone of space by utilizing only 1 video stream with multiple audio streams, and even the ability to condense multiple audio files into a singular mp4 container for the audio side as well.

Just a thought :)

Yep, that even takes it to another level, you can sync all the audio up inside sony vegas and render out mp4 with no video.. just need to figure out how to keep all the audio tracks separate. I know how to do it via mp4box already.

Hi there DJ aviator,

No the Serato DJ license upgrade is not free for the Numark N4, you will need to pay for it. There is also no recording in Serato DJ Intro, however you could do something like this to record > serato.com

Totally bummed about no HID Support for CDJ 900/850 in Serato DJ. Absolutely no reason for this. It's a MIDI controller, guys (like the 2000). How hard is it? I bought SL4 with my CDJ 900 specifically because they work together. May as well go back to just using CD's or a USB with RecordBox. If I have to buy a CDJ 2000/Nexus, why do I need Serato DJ? Answer: I don't. Not really impressed with this rollout.

There are lot of reasons. It can be harder than you may think. We also wanted to get support for the CDJ2000 and Nexus models out first.

Also, HID mode is not the only thing we are working on, and support for the CDJ900 and 850 units had a lower priority than the two industry standard CDJ's. We would love to support these in the future, however I do not have any information on when this could be implemented.

Quote:

And they still do work together! You will need to use Scratch Live until the Serato DJ 1.6 update has been released, then the SL 4 will work with Serato DJ.

Hi

Are you planning to support the use of 2 native devices at once, especially with the 1.6 and Rane interfaces compatibility?
Scott S 10:44 PM - 17 November, 2013
Hi Bozo,

If you are talking about a setup that has two native devices, such as the DDJ-SX and the Rane SL 2 (compatible in Serato DJ 1.6), they may work, but it is not supported.

However, you can use Serato DJ Accessories in conjunction with support devices e.g A Vestax VFX-1 with a Rane SL 2, or a Numark NSFX with a Rane Sixty-One.

Regards
Bozo 11:36 PM - 17 November, 2013
Hi Scott S, thanks for the response

Yes i was talking about two sound card at the same time. I think i can't have any information or timeframe about an eventual solution or support, but IMHO this is something realy usefull that i would love to see (dvs setup with a VCI 380 or just a usb cable to plug in a dj booth equiped with a 900SRt, two big wet dreams i have).

BTW, is the Rane interfaces are gonna be rebranded with the Serato Dj Logo? : )
Bozo 11:40 PM - 17 November, 2013
PS : already tried with a VCI 380 and a DJM 900srt, i wasn't able to set the DJM as audio device but DVS and 4 deck were activated. Hope that DVS will work with a SL2.

SiRocket 7:02 AM - 25 November, 2013
57, gf's 61, and my 62z…. 57 works the best of the bunch… doesn't matter which SSL version, 2.5 has the same issues unfortunately. It's a hit or miss if the CF is recorded on point.

Majority of the time I have to highlight all of the CF automation and drag it until it's correct. Normally i'll record a few chirps at the start of an .als mixtape recording session so i can see if the CF automation was off or not, and if so, I have a reference point to drag the automation to. :(

The 61 and 62 are the ones that might not record some of the CF "clicks" for scratching. The 57 has just had the intermittent CF lag issues, but never had any missing "clicks"

There is also a reverse button, I dont use that either, as Dj Rembrant says don't use it if you dont want to, I do see your point truluv about clubs and promoters taking the cheaper option and new technology making it easier for these kids to look good but hey, lets face it Traktor and all the others have being doing it for a while if Serato didn't introduce it soon they would fall behind in popularity and wouldnt be able to continue meaning all of our Harware would be useless anyway. I am trying to embrace it and use it to my advantage do do things I couldnt before, I always used to use three decks but the fourth I couldnt do, well now I can Sync it if I want to, I can intruduce some extra layers into my Mixes...A good DJ with Good DJ skills will always be able to get more out of the technology than a bad one... its just about adding to your skills and using the new technology to your advantage.
wampaone 7:01 PM - 12 December, 2013
serato,

Is there any need to change from the Ortofon s-120 needles when changing from SSL into DJ? or is it basically the same tech?

I think you guys covered this before so I apologize if so, but will there be an update to any of the interfaces? I am a SL1 owner and a djm-900 NXS. I understand that the sl1 is old tech and im fine with that, the sound quality alone when i compared it to a friends sl3 is enough reason to switch. But i hate to spend money prematurely. what i am specifically talking about is the sl4.
Code:E 7:18 PM - 12 December, 2013
Get the SL4. The SL1 and nexus900 wont receive any update that will let you use there sound cards with Serato DJ.
wampaone 7:43 PM - 12 December, 2013
right i am aware the nexus won't receive an update, or the sl1. but will they give one to the sl4 with the rollout of serato dj is what i am wondering?? Cuz it's not the same soundcard that is in the SRT.
Aaron E 8:16 PM - 12 December, 2013
Hey wampaone

Yes absolutely, the SL4 will be supported from Serato DJ 1.6. Beta out soon :)
wampaone 8:38 PM - 12 December, 2013
not what i was asking... i am VERY aware of that.

I am asking:

Is the soundcard in the SL4 the VERY EXACT sound card that is in the 900SRT?

if not;

will there be an update/new piece of hardware to match the newest soundcard that is in the SRT?
Code:E 9:12 PM - 12 December, 2013
Of course they are not the same sound card. Ones made by rane and one by pioneer. The SL4 has more features than the one in the SRT.
Code:E 9:13 PM - 12 December, 2013
They will never be exactly the same one is built into a mixer and the other is stand alone. I'm not sure what else your asking.
Aaron E 9:21 PM - 12 December, 2013
Quote:

Yeah, I'm a little confused too...

First up, we at Serato don't make soundcards, we make software. Secondly, Code:E is quite correct in that Rane and Pioneer are different companies that each make their own soundcards. Updates to soundcards usually come in the form of a new piece of hardware - be it a new mixer or an interface, depending on the company.

Cheers
Aaron
Joshua Carl 9:24 PM - 12 December, 2013
heres the biggest things "i see" (but obviously not limited to)

the SRT card is 32bit (but from everything ive read there isnt much point in being more than 24... and ive been looking hard for something saying otherwise) and its their first crack at a serato soundcard that is being driven via by vinyl/cdj
{Ie expect firmware updates)

the 64 card has 2 USBs
(why Pioneer didnt put 2 USBs in this day and age is mind boggling)


and the biggest, "stupid little thing"
the 64 has a headphone jack in the front AND on the top.
wampaone 9:38 PM - 12 December, 2013
my fault guys on not being clear enough.

Joshua reminded me, the big difference is the SRT is 32 bit not 24 like the NXS.
and you are right... I really wish they had put 2 USB ports as well!!

SO my Q is this. Do you anticipate or know of either hardware company (pioneer or rane) releasing a separate 32bit sound card similar to the 24 bit SL4 (2 USB ports)?

Being a NXS owner I realize now why maybe a 24 bit soundcard (and the fact that it was a traktor only cert mixer to begin with) may not be capable of a firmware update (even though i don't see how it isn't other than you want to sell your own serato certified licenses. which I am cool with... everyone deserves to make a profit.

I would not expect Pioneer to ever go that road. Rane will obviously update there cards in the future but how far away is anybodys guess. My guess is not in the next 12 months.
wampaone 9:55 PM - 12 December, 2013
yeah i was never expecting them to do so either. And I am wondering if RANE will either since their sole-hardware/license agreement is up. my guy says they will, but you are right. it may be another year before we see an update. i guess my best bet is to buy a SL4, but I will wait till after the official release of 1.6 just in case.
Joshua Carl 10:57 PM - 12 December, 2013
24-bit digital audio has a theoretical maximum SNR of 144 dB, compared to 96 dB for 16-bit; however, as of 2007 digital audio converter technology is limited to a SNR of about 124 dB (21-bit)[12] because of real-world limitations in integrated circuit design. Still, this approximately matches the performance of the human auditory system.[13][14]

So, 32 is kinda moot at this point.
Maybe in 2-3 years

Rane just renewed their contract a namm or two ago… they aren't going anywhere. And expect to see a new run of soundcards, or atleast an update to the graphics/shell, where it doesn't reference scratch live. Similar to how the 61 and 62 when released didn't mention SSL anywhere… just serato ;)

I prefer SL3 because only uses 1 USB port for 3 channels. I only have 3x USB ports on my laptop.

A friend was considering buying a cheap 2nd hand SL1, I advised him against it due to SDJ requirements..

I'd like an SL4 but SDJ scares me and I worry 2x USB might actually cause more usb latency.. probably wouldn't but I'm paranoid.

You better double check that my friend! dj.rane.com

The SL4 only requires 1 USB for 4 channels. The extra USB is to plug it in to another laptop for another DJ to switch-over.

It is the first standalone DJ interface with two USB ports for seamless DJ changeover and back-to-back performances.
djvic23 12:00 AM - 10 January, 2014
Does anyone know if serato DJ is going to be sold with it's own interface and install disc or is it just going to be an update to all existing hardware except for the SL-1?
Aaron E 12:27 AM - 10 January, 2014
Hey djvic23

Both is the answer :)

From our side at Serato, SDJ 1.6 will be an update that brings in all the Rane hardware except the SL1 interface and the TTM57SL mixer.

If however you purchase a new interface from Rane, there will be an install disc in the box. This won't happen straight away though as it will take some time for units packaged with Serato DJ to make their way down the retail channel.

Cheers
Aaron
J.J. 2:23 AM - 10 January, 2014
Aaron. Please tell Rane to put a USB Hub in there next Hardware Unit. Mixer or SL5.

This would be one less thing you have to worry about. Especially with Mac's only coming with 2 USB's. Dicers, MIDI, Controllers, Sound Card etc.
Aaron E 2:32 AM - 10 January, 2014
Yeah, not a bad idea J.J.

How would you envisage it being incorporated, or are you just thinking of having a generic hub thrown in the box?

Aaron
J.J. 6:11 AM - 10 January, 2014
Generic Powered Hub. I realized Rane ran out of room on the back of the 61 for things like XLR output. However, Traktor put a built-in powered USB hub for up to 2 add-on controllers in the Kontrol Z2 mixer and it's only 10.7".

So 2 USB for connecting 2 laptops for DJ changeover, and another 2 USB for a Powered Hub.
J.J. 6:14 AM - 10 January, 2014
By the way, I'm currently rocking the NS7ii and it's very nice to plug 1 USB for a controller that has it all: 2 Direct Drive Turntables, Velocity Drum Pads, FX, Filter and a mixer. This cuts the setup time down to almost nothing, not to mention your setup looks clean instead of a bunch of wires everywhere.

Generic Powered Hub. I realized Rane ran out of room on the back of the 61 for things like XLR output. However, Traktor put a built-in powered USB hub for up to 2 add-on controllers in the Kontrol Z2 mixer and it's only 10.7".

So 2 USB for connecting 2 laptops for DJ changeover, and another 2 USB for a Powered Hub.


that would be sweet. USB in, and possibly 2 usb outs per soundcard/hub
Aaron E 8:22 PM - 12 January, 2014
All sounds like a great idea to me guys, but unfortunately I'm not an engineer at Rane :)

I'll bring it up in conversations, but you guys should definitely jump on their forum over at dj.rane.com and suggest it there too.

Good to hear you're enjoying the NS7 MKII J.J. Yeah, it's pretty much got everything you need in a very tidy package. Makes you stronger too :D

It can work now, just have to map your buttons and some mapping is still limited...and that's due to SDJ.

Yes, this is in the 1.6 beta and will be in the final release.

As Dj MacMillz has said, you can map it now in SDJ 1.6. It will be natively mapped at some point, but this hasn't been implemented as of yet.
Dave The One 4:33 PM - 4 February, 2014
What's up with only being able to go down to 1/2 beat on the quantize? That's not to useful; I need 1/4 to 1/16.

Also Quantize doesn't work when in slice mode.

Quantize does not snap properly when in sync mode, the second song that is synced doesn't snap properly, or is delayed (and my tracks are mapped perfectly)

Quantize should work across the board like in traktor, on Cue, Needle search/drop, Sample mode and slice mode.
Aaron E 7:49 PM - 4 February, 2014
Thanks for the feedback Dave The One

I'll pass this on to our products team for them to consider. You could also create a feature suggestion discussion for the Quantize beat setting so we can get an idea of how many people think this would be useful serato.com

Cheers
Aaron
Dave The One 9:34 PM - 4 February, 2014
My apologies I've been redoing beat maps all day; what looks good to the eye wasn't necessarily correct. I'm happy to report that everything appears to be working as expected. Once the tracks are correctly beatmapped the quantize seems to snap with the needle search perfectly no matter if i use the mouse or my finger across the needle search on the ddj-sx. i've set cue points to begin on a snare just before the kick drum for the part i want and that too works perfectly. Quantize snap also works on the second and 3rd and 4th tracks also.

What threw me off was a track that looked perfectly mapped (by site) and it wasn't or it was a track with lazy or off grid snares; some adjustment allowed me to offset and perfectly match. When doing it with other than the main track pressing sync to make sure it stays lined up seems to help before floating with the needle search.

Once again my apologies. It works on the slicer too (when using sync too)

1/4 to 1/16 quantize would be nice too (i'll settle for 1/4 since slicer allows me to do what I need to do)
Dave The One 9:36 PM - 4 February, 2014
This quantize feature makes Serato DJ pretty sick!
Aaron E 11:50 PM - 4 February, 2014
Haha, all good man. Glad to hear you've got it sorted and that you're into the Quantize feature - it's definitely made my life easier for setting cue points!

We're going to keep tabs on requests for more beat settings so thanks for the input.

Cheers
Aaron
Dave The One 12:47 AM - 5 February, 2014
Yes Aron, setting cue points does seem easier.
Props to Serato, they are beefing up the features with Serati DJ slowly but surely.
The Bridge with the mixtape feature would definitely put it over the top of the competition.

I liked akai's idea two years ago regarding the MPC DJ hardware software DJ workstation.
I would have jumped to that in a heartbeat but it never materialized.

Please resurrect The Bridge w mixtape feature.

I use the Denon MC6000 with SSL through the Serato SL3 Box/Soundcard via midi map.

The way the market operates the MC6000 may not be "plug n play" with Serato DJ. Unless Serato makes this possible.

The only way I can see the MC6000 working with Serato DJ, is through an audio interface (SL2, SL3 etc) and midi map.

If you currently own an SL2, SL3, SL4 interface by FEB 2014 full support will be available for Serato DJ 1.6. ( a beta version is out for download currently)

My question is will Serato provide an updated midi map file that will work with Serato DJ 1.6, as they did with Serato Scratch Live?

I think Serato should allow anyone who purchases Serato DJ the ability of plug and play for the MC6000 and/or provide support of midi mappings for owners of the supported audio interfaces (SL2, SL3, SL4 etc)
Culprit 6:34 PM - 6 February, 2014
This probably wont happen. Serato already worked out an agreement for the mk2. Obviously its a business move, which is ok because serato is a business. Im not happy my 57sl wont work with Serato Dj, and besides the fact that they could possibly get it to work even though its usb 1.1 and the issues with that, they wont because its a discontinued product and want to get people to start purchasing their newer better products. I know im the bad guy in this scenario, but im just going to state facts.

Maybe you guys could try starting a petition?
SiRocket 7:03 PM - 6 February, 2014
hopefully venues get their act together and ditch the old 57's and sl1's and upgrade for once…. kind of annoying that for the next 1-2 years i'll have to revert back to SSL when playing out at most of the clubs i'm at…

Trying to get venues to purchase new gear isn't always easy….

Pioneer is on it. I have literally been to three spots that already purchased this mixer so I was contemplating using it instead of the serato box connected to get a jump start. Boy am I glad I did some research for this. My MBP is late 2010 so I am not effected. It is only the latest 2013 models w/ OSX Mavericks.

Aaron E 6:07 AM - 8 February, 2014


Thanks Culprit

The information contained in that thread is correct (nice work Pulse :). The root cause is in a combination of Apple issues. Pioneer to their credit have figured this out and are working on a fix at their end.

Mavericks is now officially supported as of Serato DJ 1.6, but we would recommend avoiding using an SRT with a late model Mac with Mavericks for the time being. For the record, I am running Mavericks and an SRT without issue, but my Macbook does not contain a Haswell chipset.

Issues with SL4 and Serato DJ

firstly, using SDJ for the first time. The Venue i work had SL4 Installed.

Once connected.. SDj shows all all 4 Vitual deck. (two Pioneer nexus and two 1200 TT's.

left Deck had- CDJ1 in line 1 and TT 1 in line 2.
Right Deck had- TT2 in line 3 and CDJ 2 in line 2.

The Setting for all four are 1234. Turntables in line 2 and 3 CDJ's In line 3 and 4.

Now here is my dilemma

I wanted to use only the 2 turntables.

on the Vitual deck left - It Shows Like 1 and 3 and on the right it shows line 2 and 4.

There was no option to switch off the channels then select the channel you want to use like in Scratch live.

We finally managed to switch the turntables around.
left deck into line 3 and right deck into line 2.
(remember left vital deck was show 1 and 3 and right was showing 2 and 4)

after the switch it was working fine, as a matter of fact, I love the look and feel of the Serato DJ...well...except for the SYNC BUTTON :-) lol.

now here comes the other dilemma.

After my set i was swapping over with the next DJ who was using Scratch Live.

he tried to select channel 1 and 4 for the CDJ's in Scratch live but all was grated. I had to play a song from my USB on one CDJ and there was no OPTION TO TURN A CHANNEL OFF IN SERATO DJ.

Bisically, I have to unplug the USB cable for the Switch to work

Hope this makes Sense.

if the is an easier way please let me know cos after Using Serato DJ for the first time and I don't think I will want to go back to Scratch Live again so R.I.P Scratch Live...its been an awwwwwSUUUUUMMM ride!

Question when you upgrade from the SL-1 to the 3, Do you have to drag all the files down to your list like you did when you first bought it? And is serato in the works for an SL-5?

Do you mean re-impoting the songs into your library? No, you don't have to do that.
All your hardware in SSL/SDJ is using the same library, you don't have to touch your library when changing hardware. Just connect your SL3 to the laptop and you my have to install a driver for it, but that's it.
Matt P 8:28 PM - 26 February, 2014
Hi DjZerocool,

This is a known problem with the SL4. To be honest the best way to get around this is to have both dj's on either SDJ or SSL. Not both.

Other than that its a bit confusing and tbh a nightmare :(

DJAlexander 9:43 AM - 9 March, 2014
@Serato, can you find a way to have the "knob" issue on the NS6 (push the main-knob so the playlists/folders/crates/subcrates to open again.

Can you manage that history shows color on played tracks that have been played with time code vinyl? (or am I missing a "enable" in my set up?)
Dj MacMillz 11:24 AM - 9 March, 2014
They enabled it in 1.6 to be the 'back' button.... (They said it has to do with uniformity with all controllers)


How are you using time code with the ns6? That's only available with the DDJ SZ, unless you're using the ns6 as a stand alone mixer with another SDJ compatible box and cdj/TT setup (I must admit that seems a bit much/bulky).
DJAlexander 3:47 PM - 9 March, 2014
@Dj MacMillz, thanks (I should have been reading the detailed "what's new" in 1.6 ?)

My bad, forgot to add, that I use a DJM900SRT when playing with time code...
Dj MacMillz 5:36 PM - 9 March, 2014
Ok, I see..... In the history tab, make sure to have 'show Unplayed tracks' unchecked. That was brought to my attention in another thread about the history panel. Unless there is a bug, that should let you see all the played (blue tracks in the history).

Code:E 5:10 AM - 9 May, 2014
So I'm giving Serato DJ its 1st live club test....... and WOW how is this software not still beta?

Why is the MIDI worse than SSL. SSL worked, it wasn't great but it worked. Why wont SDJ pick up the same types of midi signals that SSL does. I have had to rebuild al of my touch OSC templates and half the buttons I use on my MPD32 are no longer functioning in SDJ.

And I what is with HID mode. Why does it have lag now? it was perfect (less the skipping issues) in SSL, now it has lag, takes time to connect when it was instant before.

Why did you change the Tempo Reset function.

Part of what made HID so amazing is how closely it mirrored the CDJ's native behaviour.
Why would changing it be better. The way it works now is wrong. I shouldn't have to make another video too prove its current behaviour is wrong I will. Like I had to with the fucked up looping in SSL, which never was fixed. the only fix has been to move to SDJ.

Who did the SDJ HID mode beta testing. I was even asked to be part of it but I was never sent a NDA or any beta invites.

These issues are not Feature Requests. They are bugs, where is the best place to post these bugs?
Code:E 5:14 AM - 9 May, 2014
As you can see I'm a little upset. I have been a die hard Serato guy for years now, and do tons for the community online to help people but I feel like Bentley recalled and took my Continental GT away and in return gave me a VW a Phaeton (car guys will get that).

This seems very unfinished in the MIDI end. I would have though if you're going to stop with SSL (which makes complete sense) that all used SSL features would have been added and working before SSL was discontinued. :(

OK I have not had a problem with the way it works either. The expected behavior for me is the same between SSL and SDJ. Then again I don't use additional MIDI devices which seems to be part of the problem you have. And I don't have a HID compatible device so those issues are not affecting me.

To answer your question, yes you can use the SP1 on the side of your NS6.

Hi Code:E,

Sorry to hear you are upset about Serato DJ after migrating from Scratch Live. If you are experiencing issues you can start a help request or send us an email at support@serato.com, it is the most efficient way for us to help you out.

We understand the MIDI mapping functionality is not equal with Scratch Live (re: MIDI panel), and we are working on it. Rome wasn't built in a day!

Unfortunately the MIDI presets of Scratch Live are not able interchangeable with Serato DJ. This is because of the differentiation in software platforms (different code) and the old Scratch Live presets are not able to be read in future software versions.

Quote:

Yes, unfortunately this is also something we are aware of. Pioneer and Serato are investigating these HID issues and are hoping to provide improvements with future releases of our software.

Quote:
Why did you change the Tempo Reset function.

Pioneer and Serato are also aware of an issue with the Tempo Reset function when used on a CDJ-2000 or CDJ-2000Nexus in HID mode, hopefully this will be fixed in a future release as well.

Quote:

The best place would be to send us an email at support@serato.com or start a help ticket here > serato.com, however these bugs are known and we are working hard to fix them.

I'm sorry to hear you are having issues with Serato DJ Code:E but we are definitely aware of the things that need improvement. Although we might be slow in your eyes we are constantly trying to fixing bugs that have broken and make improvements to our software that our users have been asking for, it just takes time. I would love to see the issues you speak of fixed in the next release, although at this stage I dont have any further information about when a fix will be available.

Kindest regards,

Yes, you can use the Pioneer DDJ-SP1 to enhance and add to the functionality of the Numark NS6. Since the NS6 only has one effect fader per deck, the DDJ-SP1 would allow for a lot more control over your FX units (as well as the Performance Pads/Slicer etc).

Cheers,

Hey scott. Thats not even the worse part. Serato DJ appears to only pick up certain types of MIDI signals and not all. I use an MPD32 for a whole bunch of things. 6be54c364949b623a3c0-4409a68c214f3a9eeca8d0265e9266c0.r0.cf2.rackcdn.com
I have (in SSL) the transport controls mapped to open up tabs and windows like the prepare window, the EFX tab, bridge, history, ect....
I know the controller is sending out the signals (because I use a midi monitor app to check) and it works as soon as I boot up Serato. But Serato DJ wont lets to signals map to a anything. Any Chance I can confirmation that, that issues is one of the ones being worked on?
Scott S 3:34 AM - 12 May, 2014
There is no MIDI panel in Serato DJ at this stage, so those features (transport controls mapped to open up tabs and windows like the prepare window, the EFX tab, bridge, history, ect....) will not be available.

Like I mentioned above, the Scratch Live MIDI presets you have saved are not able to be used in Serato DJ. The MIDI presets are not interchangeable as Serato DJ is based on a different architecture to Scratch Live. If the MIDI panel were to become available, you will need to map those transport controls inside Serato DJ and save a new MIDI preset.

If you are currently having issues with mapping something with MIDI in Serato DJ, please start a help request and we will be able to troubleshoot your issue as soon as possible.

Thanks

Sorry man, but this statement is pretty ridiculous in my view. I'm yet to hear of any software in any industry that has been released "complete and not buggy". That's why software is released in versions. The only examples of software I know of that only had one version are all dead. That's just how it works.

We have acknowledged all known issues and have them scheduled to be fixed in what we see is the best priority for all our users. We have also taken into account all the features that users are asking for and have prioritised them similarly. I'm not really sure what more we can do in this regard.

The vast majority of our users are having a very positive experience using Serato DJ. We are constantly working to make both the proportion and the experience even greater.

Andrei Matei 9:15 PM - 26 May, 2014
I certainly echo the frustration of many folks here. As much as I want to move to Serato DJ, I just can't until basic things like fixing the distorted echo out effect, a midi panel to map track selection to controllers, HID issues with CDJ 900, and elapsed time in offline player are fixed.

I carry my SL3 with me everywhere and have to plug it in, in venues that have a Rane 64 or 900SRT. :/

Serato crew, would it be possible for you guys to share some of your prioritization list with us? I know you aren't comfortable giving dates, but if you could give us some hints as to what may be coming in the next few dot releases, that would perhaps calm everyone's nerves!
D.J Anthony 3:05 AM - 7 June, 2014
Hi all,
I am having a small problem and i was hopping that you guys could point me in the right direction on how to fix it. I am using a Mac book pro with a DDJSX mixer. When ever i click and drag a song to a deck the little green plus + sign appears and it does not drop the song into the deck instead my computer freezes with that green plus sign. I have restarted my computer and it keeps happening over and over. Has anyone ever had this problem and if so what can i do to fix this problem?
And my serato dj software is also updated and it is still happening

Thanks,
D.J Anthony

Hey guys, hope i'm in the correct forum. Bought a ns7 it came with itch, I like itch except I don't like the skin (platters on the bottom of screen).
I download the latest version of Serato dj but it won't play no more than one song and then it freezes. Can you guys help me? Thank in advance.

PS: running windows 8

The best way to get help from Serato is to open up an help request, Joe.
rickpocos 4:04 PM - 5 August, 2014
Probably your computer with this "bug" (better format) ... windows 8 is very heavy and takes up a lot of memory ... it is advisable to install Windows 7, for running Serato DJ.

Aaron E 10:58 PM - 14 August, 2014
Hey TreBlack

The SL1 (or Scratch Live) interface can be used with Serato Scratch Live as always. Unfortunately for technical reasons, it can't be supported in Serato DJ so you would need to upgrade your hardware to come across.

Cheers
Aaron
ShonkaiDJ 6:04 PM - 7 September, 2014
I'm up for a tough choice. After experimenting with the thought (and equipment) of stepping away from Serato for two months, having bought a set of CDJ900 nexuses and a DB:2 mixer to figure out a new way of preparing and playing my sets I recently realized Pioneer is not ever going to give me what I want.

Unfortunately they want me to be great full for having them buy me their gear. And they think that in this day and age I would believe I only pay for the hardware. Therefore software and support on it is kind of their courtesy. I don't think so. I'm quite sure I chose to try their system, not just hardware. I'm not stupid...

So now I want to go back to Serato but the whole industry seems to be in a frenzy over the popularity of controllers (that all look like two little CD players ;-) (Not very creative I think).

Question:
If I now send back my CDJ's 900 NXS's and exchange them for the 'old' 900's, will I then hear from you guys in 2015 Serato DJ will only support the 900NXS for HID control or can I count on the normal 900's to get that feature so I'm sure of working with it again from now on with SSL, and be able to make the step to Serato DJ next year when it is HID supported?

I know -though much better and friendlier with your clients- I'm taking a big risk loosing money now on returning the NXS's so I can go on playing in HID mode. Only to hear in a couple of months I would have done better getting used to time code CD's for a little while because HID for DJ will only be supported in the NXS's.

I hope you understand how serious this question is or this matter for that matter. I sincerely believe something is going to happen concerning CDJ's Serato HID mode and the number 900 but what???

Please answer my question or I will not be able to make a safe decision. Maybe for you it's nothing but for me it's lot's and lot's of money to invest in the right way.

So:
1. SSL --> CDJ900NXS Support Y/N? (I think no)
2. SDJ --> CDJ900 Support Y/N?

(3.) I assume the promising news hidden somewhere in this thread at least means there will be support for Serato DJ, HID and the CDJ900NXS?

Thank you very much for clearing this out.
Jensen Määäm 7:56 PM - 7 September, 2014
You can use the CDJ 900s in HID mode with SDJ, the 900s Nexus as well.
See here: serato.com

You can use the CDJ 900s in HID mode with SSL, but not the 900s Nexus.

Aaron E 9:01 PM - 7 September, 2014
Thanks Jensen!

ShonkaiDJ - Although I can't speak for Pioneer and their plans for the CDJ-900s, I can say that they will be supported in HID mode in Serato DJ for a long time to come.

Cheers
Aaron
ShonkaiDJ 10:02 PM - 7 September, 2014
Hi Aaron,

I'm sorry but English isn't my native language so now I wonder: a long time to come, does it mean I have to wait for the support for a long time? That would not be such a problem because I'm fine with SSL and the bridge. I understand it will take till 2015 before the bridge will show up in Serato DJ anyway.
And is it Serato or Pioneer that has the last say in it? I would think Serato already has the code for the 900's. Anyway. If it will take a long time I'm better off switching to the 900's I get a reasonable deal with Serato DJ hardware then and SSL will work on my system the next 3 years. It will give me the necessary time to make the change.

Thanks for the info so far!
Aaron E 11:37 PM - 7 September, 2014
Ah sorry man!

What I was meaning is that the 900s are supported in Serato DJ now and will be supported for a long time :)

Both the CDJ-900 and CDJ-900NXS are fully supported in Serato DJ and the CDJ-900 is supported in Scratch Live.

Touch strip not working like they should.
Hot cues not working like they should.
GUI still is laggy (not nearly as bad as it was)
Tempo Reset behaviour

I know there was more. I have sent / created more than a couple of help requests and posted about these many times on other threads.

I want to know will Serato ever revisit the programming on the CDJ2000, or am I F'ed I want to use the New features of the Serato DJ. But I use CDJ 2000 cause they act like CDJ's not controllers. The HID programming treats them like Controllers. It feels some of the things that are wrong where done that way cause they are a much easier way to program. The HID for CDJ2000s in SDJ just feels lazy. It should be fixed. CDJ2000's are going to be around for years to come, it shouldn't bee to much to ask to get it right (or at least as SSL got it).

Do you mean it disengaged once you move the pitch? (unlike CDJ behaviour?)

As with almost everything wrong with the HID. the CDJ should still act like a CDJ. So the hot cues should not set just because theres not one in that slot.

The GUI now takes at least 10 time longer to confirm you have connected (causing many skipped heart beats during DJ change overs and setups).
The Round LED screen center of the CDJ is still not as smooth as it was in SSL. (I can live with that).
Scrolling though songs in not as smooth as it could be.
And you are still wasting half the screen for no reason. Other views on the CDJ's should be available.
I'm no scratch DJ but A friend who is couldnt scratch IN HID mode when he can with timecodes.

Absolutely, If tempo reset is on I should be able to move the pitch all I want and not have it disengage. If I'm quick mixing and have the tempo locked I dont need a small bump to unlock it and send it way out. Its far too easy to hit the pitch fader by accident. When it locks it should be locked until I unlock it.
Jamie W 3:04 AM - 10 September, 2014
Sweet man, thanks for your feedback.

Hot Cues & Touch Strip & Tempo Reset.
- I understand where you are coming from, but there are other users out there that like it the way it currently is even though its not 100% the same as a CDJ standalone.
This doesn't mean we can't change it. Drop this feedback in the feature request area so our products team can review it and look into it further.

You have existing threads that are unresolved, that can (and are) being reopened. Wouldn't it seem wiser to conclude those requests as opposed to users going on and on aimlessly, thread jacking each other, wondering how to get help and why nobody is answering them? You don't even have a sticky up about the closure. Why is it closed? Most Vestax users have a DJ license which includes support. But sure, i'll happily copy and paste my thread to the Serato dead letter office :)
Aaron E 2:03 AM - 15 December, 2014
Ah okay, got you.

There was a sticky up for about 9 months, but yes, I could see how people might get back in there after this time and not know what's going on. I'm a bit surprised there are still unresolved issues out there, but I'll re-issue all the compulsory stickies so everyone knows what's up.

I prefer SL3 because only uses 1 USB port for 3 channels. I only have 3x USB ports on my laptop.

A friend was considering buying a cheap 2nd hand SL1, I advised him against it due to SDJ requirements..

I'd like an SL4 but SDJ scares me and I worry 2x USB might actually cause more usb latency.. probably wouldn't but I'm paranoid.

You better double check that my friend! dj.rane.com

The SL4 only requires 1 USB for 4 channels. The extra USB is to plug it in to another laptop for another DJ to switch-over.

It is the first standalone DJ interface with two USB ports for seamless DJ changeover and back-to-back performances.

Scott S 12:50 AM - 24 December, 2014
Hi b.aze,

Yes you will need to buy the DVS upgrade - you can not use the DDJ-SX2 and SL4 at the same time, just one or the other :)

Kind regards, and Merry Christmas!
b.aze 1:02 AM - 24 December, 2014
Thanks. Yeah I didn't mean to imply that I would use them at the same time. I was wondering if the SL4 had a grandfathered license to DVS (if that makes sense). But you answered my question! Thanks. (I'm not complaining, I'm sure it is worth the money)
Scott S 1:11 AM - 24 December, 2014
No problem b.aze,
Quote:

The SL4 doesn't have any "licences" per se, as it was designed well before we introduced the licensing or "DVS upgrade" system - it is just a plug-and-play device for use with turntables or CDJs. Unfortunately since you are unable to connect two devices at the same time, there is no way to enable DVS for use with the DDJ-SX2 without purchasing a DVS Expansion Pack licence.

Hope this helps!

Scott S 9:18 PM - 1 January, 2015
Hi DJ Grand D,

Sorry to hear you are having issues, are you actually saving the preset or just creating a mapping for it? If you want to save a MIDI mapping you can do so in the SETUP screen under the "MIDI" tab. There is also a possibility the MIDI folder or preset may have become corrupted - try deleting or renaming your MIDI folder in the _Serato_ folder and try mapping again.

This general discussion area is not the best place to be asking technical questions. If you need some assistance it would be best to start a help request here > support.serato.com

Our support team will be able to pick up the ticket and help you with your specific problem.

Kind regards

If you have any compatible SL box ( SL 2/3/4) or one of the Rane mixers, you're all set for SDJ and DVS
deyone 1:05 AM - 29 July, 2015
Just wanted to point out that anyone using the Serato Club Kit along with 2 phono turntables and a supported Pioneer DJM-850 mixer can't use all four decks with Serato Video. You can only configure video to play on decks 1 & 2 or 2 & 3 (at one time). This is kind of a big problem because to get optimal sound from my turntables I need to use channels 1 & 4 on the DJM-850 because those are the only two channels with phono inputs. Which means I can only play video on channel 1 while channel 4 displays nothing.

No bueno. I hope Serato expands the configuration options in future updates so that Serato Video is more usable.
Scott S 1:25 AM - 29 July, 2015
Hi deyone, yes you are correct - Serato Video is only available for decks 1 and 2 at this stage (or 2 and 3 depending how you have your mixer set up).

Four deck (or four channel) video mixing is something we would love to include however there's no news about that at this stage.

Hopefully we can implement more Serato Video features soon! This could include the option to reassign Video decks/channels like you have mentioned. I'm sure our Products Team have already had requests like this but your best bet would be to follow up with a post in the Serato DJ Feature Suggestion area > serato.com

Regards
deyone 1:37 AM - 29 July, 2015
Thanks for the feedback. I'll do that.

Let 'em know, man. We're still using turntables out here!
Scott S 1:41 AM - 29 July, 2015
Haha so are we! But even with Serato DJ controllers you can only currently use 2 channels for Serato Video. Serato Video is overdue for a little bit of an upgrade so hopefully we can see more cool things coming out soon :)

Oh cool, welcome aboard :)

Sorry, difficult to tell exactly what might be going on there for you. It will depend on your hardware and a couple of other factors as to how the PFL works for you. This is probably something you best chat with someone from the support team about.

You can get in touch by opening a help request here: support.serato.com

One is that he doesnt have the power cable that came with the sl3 package. Which cable would i need to power?

And two is he doesnt have the original software that came with the sl3 package.

What options do i have? And
Also will i be able to download for free the software that will enable me to use the sl3 equipment?

Okay i will look into power cables later when im home

I was thinking will sersto dj be free to use as i currently use serato intro for free and have used a trial period for sersto dj which has. Now ended

Will i have free access to serafo dj features to download or will i have to pay a fee to use full sersto dj
Scott S 9:20 PM - 10 March, 2016
Serato DJ will be free to use with the Rane SL 3, as it is a native device and a licence purchase is not required. You should be able to connect the Rane SL 3 and Serato DJ will activate straight away.

However, if you want to use your Serato DJ Intro controller (assuming you own one), you will need to purchase a Serato DJ licence before you can use Serato DJ with that controller.

Cheers
ut 9:38 PM - 10 March, 2016
Okay thanks for the fast and accurate repsonce.

Just to confirm i will able to use the sl3 package with full sersto dj for free?

I do also own. A pioneer sb but have both turntables and cdjs on there way

I will be using the vinyl and cdjs separately but they will defiantly work with serato dj full for free?
Scott S 9:56 PM - 10 March, 2016
Yes, you will be able to use the SL 3 with Serato DJ for free.

I do also own. A pioneer sb

If you want to use the Pioneer DDJ-SB with Serato DJ, you will need to purchase a licence.

I suggest you keep your DDJ-SB for Serato DJ Intro, and use your Rane SL3 + Turntables/CDJs for Serato DJ. This way you will not need to purchase an additional Serato DJ licence.

the DDJSX does not support the club kit DVS capabilities. The DDJSX2 was created for this.

so the Rane SL boxes are supported in DJ 1.9 but not in El Capitain :p

Hey Perceptron

Yes that's correct as of now. We are hoping to have the Rane El Capitan drivers in Serato DJ soon so hold tight.
