Serato Workshop - Microsoft Flagship Store (NY)
The Digilogue is excited to announce Serato's collaboration with Microsoft on April 7th! Serato Artist Relations team OP! and Dstrukt will be leading the workshop demonstrating key features in Serato DJ, using the Microsoft Surface.
Basics of Serato DJ 1.9.6
- Beat Gridding
- Beat Jumps
- Serato DJ FXs
- Key Detection and Pitch n' Time DJ
- Pitch Play
- Smart Crates
The workshop will be controller focused. OP Miller and the Serato team will bring five different controllers for people to test out after the workshop.
There will be a raffle for a Serato DJ Suite, Serato DJ licenses, and other goods.
But, to run an official demo session of a product that (now) officially warns not to use the hardware/device with their own software is more than a little schizophrenic, no... ?
Fingers crossed this event got Microsoft & Serato devs talking!
Do you do anything else for system optimization or is it just the network card? Also, do you disable the card completely or just turn on airplane mode? The specs are pretty much the same as my surface book, but I'm still getting the weird hang where my keyboard and trackpad stops working for a short amount of time.
A bit of a late reply but @König Balthasar are you still using your Surface Pro without issue and what makes you think that the micro-SD is an issue?

No i do not use my surface pro for serato. That was just a input from other experience i made with serato on windows. If you use flight mode there are no wifi or bluetooth interrupts and that makes your system more stable, and in my opinion, that is a very easy step to do before you start the gig.
The SD Card thing was something confusing i had this summer, when i copyed all the Serato Library files and MP3s to a SD card, as a backup. When i started the gig i relized that when i load a track it needs 30s (serato GUI was freezed during this time) that was horror, after i removed the SD card everything worked perfect again. So i think if you load the MP3 from SD and it is slow, than you can have big impacts.
He DarpMalone, what do you mean with lockups? Do you have a full freeze, with Audio drop? Do you need to kill the serato process?
OK now i remember, i had that SD card problem on my lenovo T420s DJ Laptop with a read only SD card, after the backup i have set the card to read only. Maybe that was the problem that slow down serato...
But i would recommend to try without USB or SD only with the internal drive, for testing.
Do you use a USB Hub when you use the USB Drive?
I'm currently using the Microsoft Surface doc which has a built in hub but it froze when my DDJ was plugged in directly as well.
I'll remove the microSD, and throw a folder onto the local drive this evening and play around in Airplane mode for a while and see how it behaves.

Music continues to play but Serato stops responding to my controller. All lights on the controller freeze and Serato doesnt respond to keyboard shortcuts... Other programs in Windows still respond though. I can alt+tab in to other programs and they seem to work but no response from Serato. I'm forced to cold reboot Windows.
Its not exactly ideal, but have you tried turning a few things off in the Bios (when booting your surface, hold both power and volume up button at the same time, once surface logo shows up, let go of the power button, but continue to hold volume up)? I've turned off things like the IR sensor, front and rear cameras, and the surface dock (since i don't have one). This helps free up some resources.
I will say, that after installing the last 2 serato builds, i've had the same thing happen. music will still play, but the only way to get out of it is to do a cold reboot. I've since tried updating my windows 10 version to the latest insider release to see if that helps any. So far, I havent seen any issues, but will keep post any updates... I'm hoping if Serato DJ 2.0 is a 64 bit application, maybe that would help out with some of these issues as well. Guess we'll find out.
