Ok so I recently got serato and I love it. Cheap tunes, get to play digi only releases etc. However. When I'm mixing I find it very either or. Its dead simple to just click the thru button...but I dont...I either have a mix with my MP3s, or leave it on thru mode and have a vinyl session. Maybe I'm just just still getting used to the setup..who knows. Anyone have anything similar?

Teddy, if i read the first post right, he's not saying he has a problem with the setup, lol.

Then again ive been up for 5 hours already and im staring at a screen in a badly lit office. I may be wrong.

wait, so when through mode is on you can play normal vinyl records?
Yeah, which is what is supposed to happen. Its so you dont have to fuck about unplugging shit in order to get back to normal wax. You just click THRU in the software and it routes the signal straight past the serato soundcard.

So what happens when you try and transition from one to the other?

digi = business
vinyl = pleasure

Lol maybe I should have explained a bit better. The set up works fine. S'all good. Can switch thru to digi no probs. What I'm saying is I don't. I still see my music collection as 2 different things. I have my MP3s and I have my wax. I never cross format mix and I don't really know why as the ability is there and that's the whole point of serato. I'm wondering if anyone else had a bit of 'getting usedto it' time when you got serato. Reason is I'm wondering if serato actually suits me or I'd just be better off with my TT's and a cdj

yeah I see what you are saying bro - and that is why I am really clinging onto being vinyl only - if I went to serato, my records would become redundant - whats the real point of taking records with you when you have them all on your computer? the cross format option does work well tho for jamming b2b which is what I do quite a bit
