Hi there,
I just want to clarify the way you have your gear set up.,
Normally this is enough to annoy anyone.

Having set all the equipment up,this is what I would do.....

Try without Serato

Firstly I would set the records & platters and then the counterweights,
Then I would do an audible check.Headphones,Monitors and then front of house system
If this passes I will then set the room levels for comfort and then the eq band gets a tune up for the room,

If this set up procedure works then connect Serato,
If problems persists then Uninstall Serato and Reinstall.

Try Again if all else fails ......

www.serato.com they have a contact us,report the problem.

Hope this helps ,If you need more help please let me know,Misterdj

Tascam 122 Mk III - input signal is low and distorted


It is hard to guess what is causing this but for all of the gain to be reduced like that either the deck has seen some really high input signal in the past that blew out some amplifiers or that there is a power supply component that has taken the input electronics down.
I suspect that you will need to have a Technician look at it. If you are near Chicago, I may be your answer, I have been working with these Teac units for 40 years and was a Lead Tech at Chicago Factory Service in Arlington Heights.

If you are far off- I have other people that can do the job one in New Jersey and a few others.

Some of my records sound distorted in playback others play fine it seems


This could be a defective cartridge or a bad belt. It all depends upon the type of distortion that is present. Poor speed control can be difficult to hear with speech but very noticable in music. With low volume sources, poor quality may not be as noticable and hide cartridge problems. Can you please update this with a description of the distortion as well as the model number?

Thanks,
Dan

I get feed back, distortion, or some kind of broken up signal, on one deck only. I've replaced both stylus'. Problem only occurs while using serato.


Have you tried to uninstall serato and reinstall
It sounds like the version of serato may have issues with it.
Could be worth a try,
this seems to run well for most people that use it,
so I would be looking at the version you have and the equipment its attached to,
to find out if they are compatible,
Any issues should be reported to Serato so they can rectify,

I know an Agent in New Zealand who is a reliable source of information and may be more help if needed,Please let me know thanks

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.
