Not to mention the fact that Panasonic discontinued production on the Technic turntables. Lets take a more thorough look into thins new phenomenon. Click through...

Serato Tip of the Week: Back-up Your “_ScratchLive_” Folders.

Recently I encountered a big problem with Serato Scratch Live. The backups for the ScratchLive are not so great. I was at a gig and everything was fine. The next day, when I awoke, I hooked up my portable hard drive and 90% of my crates were missing. How did this happen? How can you fix this? Why does this happen anyhow? All questions hot in my mind. Bottom line, you got to make your own backups of your "_ScratchLive_" and/or "ScratchLive" folders. Click through for the details and how to fix this problem.
