Playing songs backwards wit serato scrach live

I'm a DJ and i use the SL-1200MK2's with Serato scrach live and a rane TTM56 mixer as well as my computer. The first table is perfect but the second one, as soon as I drop a song from the computer to it, the record plays normally but the song gets read backwards? The table got new RCA wires and is working fine a part from that. I've used my second set of tables (at the club) with all the same gear (Mixer, serato, needles and computer) and everything is fine??? What would be the wiring problem? Cause it's pretty much the only thing i can figure beeing wrong at that point? Help!

Serato does not recognise my technics turntable. The turntable is on and turning well but no response from serato. the arms in the serato do not move...help?


serato is a software to be used with an external soundcard it doesnt care what turntables you have. u have to a rane mixer or one that is serato capable in order to use it. then you have to go and link and sync your time codes

Computer not playing my technics table


More than likely the RCA cables need to be replaced. Torque, Serato, and all digital dj programs require a clear signal path coming from the source (turntable, cdj, etc). If it does not have a clear signal, or 1 side is louder than the other, it will not work.

You have to remember, these are analog turntables connecting to a digital system. The signal quality is different, and your RCA cables have to be prestine.

The following cables work very well for this type of configuration:

One cdj and one turntable


This is possible, by connecting your turntable to the Line Input on the serato box. Then just connect both to your LINE INPUT on your mixer, and set the controls on your Serato Software to LINE INPUT - NOT Phono.

Hey how come i cant use my loop features on my cdj800 with my serato?


It's the limitations of Serato. Because it's sampling in real-time, the signal cannot be manipulated by the CDJ800. Sorry, there is no way around this. Talk to Serato about this.

Serato won't recognize my music files


your using itunes and trying to export your library that is the problem it has metatag encoding which at this time is not supported by serato and says it all over there sites forum. There are ways to do it but none of which i know that are legal or condone. Your best bet is to not use itunes as many djs acknowlodge that since you cant use itunes to dj with, even in your bedroom as stated in there terms of service that it is not worth using itunes. I use other types of music collections on like such as mp3.com and rhapsody or dancerecords.com to download all my music to dj with.

Problem


Make sure your ground wire is connected. I know Serato does not work properly if your ground wire is connected.

Also, make sure your running the connection from the Line Out of the Serato box into the LINE IN on your mixer. You can use the Phono Input also, but I generally tell people to use the line input to avoid any issues. Regardless of which input you use, make sure that your Serato software is either set to LINE or PHONO, otherwise it wont run properly.
