Serato and pitch control
Just a quick question: Is pitch control in Serato based entirely on the controller? I.E. on a Technics 1210, is it only possible to have +/- 8% pitch control, whereas on a CDJ 400, you could have greater pitch control because the hardware has from +/-6% up to 100%?

I know in int mode, the software has pitch controllers for +/-16%, but then you lose the vinyl interface.

Can you set the pitch control just through the software?

Thanks guys

um, theres no option to convert your 8% directly to 16% pitch if thats what you mean

but there is an extra 33/45 in the software that you can use with your regular 33/45 buttons on your table to bend the pitch to extremes somehow. i can't remember and my laptop is at home. but yeah you can play beats really slow this way or really fast...

i still don't understand why someone would use serato with cdj's.

seems a little redundant to me.

I disagree, I used it with vinyl back home, but now overseas and in a country that 90% of clubs have only cdj's

I've started to use it with cdj's and its sweet - once you get used to having all your tracks at the tips of your fingers and are used to pulling them out as quickly as you can type half the tracks name via track search

there really is no going back to searching through cd wallets for that track

you can do so much more when everything is one click or key command away, depends what your into - i like to mash stuff up so getting acapellas and different beats up and on the deck quickly is a must

each to their own

ok, went home and played with it. one option is always selected internally for each deck, either 33/45. 33 is normal speed.

u press 45 and it slows it down, enough that if you now pressed 45 rpm on your actual turntable it would be now playing at its natural BPM.

hope that makes sense

yeah. the problem is though, anything more than 8% pitch usually sounds like ass.
