It's not really a digital signal, per say. Its an analog representation of a digital signal. This is good because it's easier troubleshoot. The first thing I would try is check the ground wires. #1cause of Serato Traktor problems. If that's not it, play an analog record to see how it sounds. If you have a missing channel, clean the cartridge with a pencil eraser and inspect the stylus and try again. Restart your mixer and computer (this cycles the ground) and you should be good to go.
If not you may have bad cables that will have to be changed. See the thing about turntables is the audio signal never comes in contact with the turntables electronics. it goes from the needle through the arm and out the cables. The cartridge's signal is magnetic not line level so it needs good shielded cables. Perfect opportunity to upgrade the cheap cables from the manufacturer and you can internally ground the turntable at the same time Eliminate the annoying ground wire. It requires a bit of soldering, all amateur stuff. Youtube is filled with tutorials on changing cables and eliminating the ground wire. oh make sure you have a good shielded USB cable.

If this doesn't work I can think of more.
Give more secifics about your setup.

Tonearm not emitting signal into Serato


there is a switch that cuts off the signal when the tone arm docks.check the wiring is not broken inside and that the switch is ok.typically,red green white black red and white are plus and left ground is green and right ground is black.the collar that screws on to the head unit has 4 pins.make sure the contacts are clean.measure the wires one at a time from the tone arm to the rca plugs on the back.the green and black go to the outside collars,and the red and white go to the center pin of the rca plugs

You have to hook up the SL1 Box or the 57SL mixer and then install the drivers. If you are not hooked up to either of these it will say 'Interface Disconnected' or 'Soundcard Not Found'.

Distorted sound, Low signal, unable to use deck with serato.


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

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

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.

did you make sure that the rca cables are in the correct left and right inputs because if you reverse them it will not read the signal correctly

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.
