Beginner Turntablist checking in.
Currenty using 2 Denon HS5500 and a very smooth, soft cutting, vestax PCV 175 Trance style mixer, which sucks for scratching, but its forcing me to be tighter in my fader movements so its not all bad.
Anyway, heres on of my favourite routines to watch.

|CheeseForSteeze||I figured out how to queue up the other track at the same instant that the other track is playing. Click and drag the virtual vinyl of what you want to copy to the other vinyl of the other channel and it will queue it up at the same instant. It works best if the destination channel is on internal mode rather than absolute or relative because then it will be stay in perfect sync whereas relative would undoubtedly leave the decks under vinyl control which would obviously not be as precise as computer set internal tempo.|

damn, that makes the queue buttons and auto loop control panel on the sixty two seem useless. I'm just going to skip for now and use what I have on the sixty two and save that money for buying music, consumable parts (cartridges and timecode vinyls) and tattoos. But shit, $100 for a pair ... I just hate to have this awesome mixer and buy equipment that is redundant, although these things seem a little easier to drum on with queue points. I will say, I'm not really thrilled about the knob/button loop/auto loop control cluster design on the sixty-two. If you haven't played with one (you probably have, I'm guessing), basically there is a button which intitiate auto loop, and one that loops but jumps back to real time when you let it go and then you have a knob with tactile detents for setting the loop interval; kind of like an Aimpoint power knob. My friend has an AKAI where each button is programmed to auto loop at different intervals. Maybe I could use the dicers for just the auto looping and use the queue buttons on the mixer still. That seems like it'd be worth $100.
I thought maybe there was a built in function in Serato that would automatically queue up the other track at the exact point the other one. I guess I could just hit an empty queue button on the track playing and immediately hit it on the other channel to force it to jump to that point.
Thanks for the tip about turning my shoulders too, I can chirp and 1 and 2 click on my right deck pretty easily now.

dicers homie. by far the best cuing tool to use with serato and real turntablism. cheap too

|stan_darsh||you can be playing in relative mode, and set a cue point where the track is at. then i guess load it and hit from that cue point. the keyboard shortcuts are super rad for this. i have only used serato once... at a show last minute cause my needles broke, and the promoter only had ortofons, which don't track on dubs. someone showed me how to use relative mode and set cues, so you can just drop tracks without worrying too much about the control records... i imagine this would be ideal for scratching, as needles jumps won't really matter|

|CheeseForSteeze||For sure. Any of your SSL experts know if there's a function to instantly pull up the same track at the same point that's playing on the other channel? Do you need to be internal mode? I've seen two DJs do this and it looks like a really good tool to have for doing some interesting tricks or if spinning with only one deck/control signal.|

|stan_darsh||it's really annoying to learn... but the more time you spend on it, the more time you have on it. if that makes sense...|
