Topic: Timecode Pitch Response vdj8
Hello I have mentioned this on another topic, " the only way to have a serato like pitch response is setting the "pitch quality" to -2, then you can can move the pitch on the turntable or cdj, and have that instant pitch drift in sound when doing quick pitch drifts from -8% to 0% to +8% or more,...but then we wont have master tempo/keylock.
the response in serato in sound and BPM% is like instant, VDJ8 takes like a second with pitch 2 or 3, if set to 0 is better but takes more CPU, pitch quality set to -1 or -2 instant pitch drifts but no keylock/master tempo."
here is a video at 6.55 regarding pitch response

I think JFB is using the LineIn and the Timecode signal....

here another example at 33seconds pitch "rides"

thank you

I have also tried this -2 pitch quality with TCV (SERATO) ON 1210's and I agree this seems to improve the response of the pitch response audibly. In my opinion the slider on the screen can do what it wants, I'm interested in the audio and this seems to improve the response. I will trial it for a while and see how it goes.
Thank you for this advice!

yes, but then you wont have "Master Tempo" / "Key Lock", the pitch response (on-screen) is faster and the sound change is (almost) instant on pitchquality -2 (or -1), but if you need to "keylock" a deck to play it faster/slower you cant.... only on pitchquality zero 1,2 or 3.

Hello Again and thank you for you advice.
I have been playing around with this and it is working well the response is fantastic. I never use the Key lock function or have master tempo selected as I did not have this function when playing normal records. I have always tried to get the TCV to replicate a normal record / turntable setup. Can you see any other flaws with using this setting?
thank you

Thank You

Hello, in the very beginning of vdj 8.0, it had a different sound engine algortyhm, it was full of bugs and crashes, pitchwarble ,vinyl sticker drift , I think we had to use pitch quality 1 for better sound, "zero" for faster pitch response, and pitchQ -1 or -2 to have zero vinyl sticker drift and better performance, after some updates we were able to use pitchQ 2 with no scratchwave drifts, sticker drifts, or woobles.
VDJ8 is amazing! the mapping/scripting are endless and advanced settings in software are very detailed, if they 're not there (any option,any controller) just ask Devs Support,and in some time its updated.
