Scratch Live 2.1.1 Release Notes

22 September, 2010

What's new in 2.1.1

* The Bridge 1.0: Control Ableton Live using Scratch Live, and record mixtapes as Ableton Live sets.

* Performance and stability improvements.

Full List of Changes

- Added support for The Bridge plugin. Please visit The Bridge product page for more information.
- Reduced overall CPU usage when using Scratch Live.
- Fixed tags from being written out unnecessarily after loading and ejecting a track.
- Fixed bug where the SL3 thru audio would be interrupted for a few seconds while exiting Scratch Live on Mac.
- You can now MIDI assign "latching" control change events to buttons in Scratch Live again by setting the Control Change type to "relative".
- Fixed the SP-6 individual sample output selection not being saved for that sample if that sample was set to go out the Aux channel on the SL 3.
- Added the ability to not connect to individual MIDI controllers on the MIDI tab of the setup screen.
- Fixed bug where setting temporary cues could cause GUI issues on the waveforms e.g. multiple temp cues appearing.
- Fixed bug where using Ctrl + Shift + delete to remove a track from an empty parent or subcrate could lead to the parent crate being saved with the (safe) postfix in its filename.
- Fixed bug where changing the pitch on a sample in the SP-6 will also pitch samples in other sample banks.

Running more than one version of Scratch Live

Installing this version will by default overwrite any previous version you had installed, however it is easy to have more than one version of Scratch Live installed if you wish.

If you have an important gig coming up, you might like to stick with the version you know until you are comfortable with this version. Here's how to do it:
Windows Users

Before installing, find the Scratch Live executable (by default it is in C:\Program files\Serato\ScratchLIVE, and rename it. It makes sense to name it in a way that suggests which version of Scratch Live it is. For example, if you're renaming Scratch Live 1.9.2 call it Scratch Live 1.9.2.exe. When you install the new version, the old executable will not be deleted, and you can choose which you want to run by going into that folder and double clicking on the appropriate executable.

Mac users

Before installing, rename the existing application file as above (eg. Scratch Live 1.9.2) - you have to be admin to rename it. (If you aren't admin, you can copy it to another location, and then rename it.)

Backing up your data

Before you make any changes to your Scratch Live setup, including installing a new version, as a general rule we highly recommend that you backup your data and your music files. The easiest way to backup your data is to simply copy your Scratch Live folder to another location on the drive:

  • For the drive that contains "My Documents" (or your Home drive on Mac), just copy the Scratch Live folder which is in "My Documents\My Music\" to another location on this drive. Alternatively make a copy of the folder where it already is and rename it by adding the date to the folder name so you know what's in the backup.
  • To back up the database and crates from an external drive, copy the _ScratchLive_ folder (which is in the root of the drive) into another folder on the same drive.
