Dubstep meets Hip Hop with Serato

First things first. Click here for the "how to move your crates" tutorial. Funny thing is, I was about to write this article on my own because I just got a new computer and DJ Lazor just migrated 2 Two TB drives to one 6TB drive, but no need cause Serato gots me covered! Ha. Lucky me.

Now lets talk about the new release of Serato, 2.3.3. If you got 2.3.whatever then its a bit the same but with less bugs and crashes. Another noteworthy improvement is now Serato can play Video files (as an MP3) whether or not you have Video SL installed. Thats nice if you are collecting videos, but dont want to plop down the cash for the plugin.

Here is the full list of fixes from Serato:

Scratch Live 2.3.3

Full list of changes:

Playback and file management fixes

  • Total rewrite of all metadata/tagging read/write of all MPEG-4 files. This includes .mp4, .m4a, .aac and many .mov files.
  • Potential fix to seemingly random crashes during playback of files decoded by Quicktime libraries (mac).
  • Fixed bug where autoplay was enabled after hot-plugging hardware.
  • Fixed bug where some MPEG-4 files were being incorrectly marked as corrupt.
  • Fixed bug where some files were not relocating after using 'relocate lost files'.
  • Removed video file filtering. This means Scratch Live can now play audio from video files without having to have Video-SL installed.
  • Fixed potential crashes when relocating lost files.
  • Fixed MIDI mapped SL4 THRU button still triggering even when 'Lock Playing Deck' is in effect.
  • Fix for Grid Edit keyboard shortcut not cycling through the SL3 Aux Deck.
  • Fixed Relocate Lost Files not finding files in some cases and sometimes losing information.
  • Empty crates are saved to the root drive's subcrates dir to allow the user to prepare a crate structure. NB: Empty crates are never saved to external drives.

Hardware related fixes

  • Fixed bug where if SSL was started with the TTM 57 plugged in, it would increase its gain level if it was unplugged, then plugged in again.
  • Fixed the TTM 57 B1-B6 button mapping so that their states match the state of the Scratch Live function to which they're mapped to.
  • CDJ-900 loop editing now works on deck 4.
  • Fixed bug where some midi controllers wouldn't display in the MIDI panel of the setup screen. Affected devices include the NI Kontrol X1.
  • Fixed issues with the Pioneer MEP-7000 pitch and velocity controls.

GUI fixes

  • When 'lock playing decks' is in effect, the thru mode button is now disabled.
  • Fixed bug where the waveforms were rendered a little low (horizontal mode).
  • Fixed incorrect spacing for + pitch amounts on the GUI's velocity sliders.
  • Fixed bug where the bpm couldn't be doubled/halved without the edit box seemingly clearing all text upon a key release.
