While I have a heap of NAMM footage to get through, I'm actually tired of seeing the same video that 10 other people shot. So I'm cherry picking the things that I don't think you'll see elsewhere. Just before NAMM, Serato announced Serato Video - the cross platform (well ITCH and SSL) plugin that brings video to ITCH controllers. Aroha from Serato braved the loud NAMM show floor to give us a quick walkthrough the real basics.
I've been lucky enough to get an early build of Serato Video and have been running it a little with a Novation Twitch. I'm sure it runs with my VCI-300 too, but I'm keen to exploit the more control surface rather than DJ way of using video. As so far, it's run very smoothly, and the slicer works like a charm, as do all 8 cue points.
I'm not familiar with Video-SL that this replaces. I was promised a review that never materialised, so I'll be throwing myself into it noob style to see what all the fuss is about once it drops properly. I can however report that it's heaps of fun. But what you see in these pictures is subject to change, as are the features.
More than that I'm forbidden by international law to say. I'll probably get into strife for posting these images. Just out of interest, do you see Jesse J or Q-Tip first? I see Q-Tip.
