I record my 5 1/2 hour residency sets (four 60 minute recordings, one hour & a 1/2 recording), I've noticed a few issues repeatedly, a few sporadically.
1)I notice when I render my videos as I recorded them with my DJ name in a 'rotating' overlay, it doesn't display it thru the entire recording playback. Part one overlay stops at 15 seconds, Part two at 20 seconds, part five at 1 minute 30 seconds, etc. I am positive it is displaying through my whole performance. This happens often.
2) Last gig, I noticed that one video has no display, just a black screen and audio after rendering. I checked my Serato history just to confirm that I was playing an actual video, and I was.
3) Occasionally I notice that both turntables will display on my TV's, even if my fader is hard left or right. I thought it may be something in my crossfader on my Vestax 380, but it also happens when I am using my Rane 68 with CDJ's. Its like I'm playing turntable one, but the display will be split screen (it almost always appears as split screen) showing turntable two simultaneously as I'm cueing up. The only remedy seems to be loading up the same video on both turntables and then ejecting out of one. Then it appears to go to one screen after like 30 seconds. This may happen every gig. I am not always looking at my tv's, but I have noticed it happen many times.
4) This is probably an error on my part, but just sharing: Last gig early night I was moving my controller about 5 minutes in and lost audio. I heard a 'pop', and I am assuming I may have unplugged a usb or power cord. At the time I thought I may have unplugged my hard drive and would get the pin wheel on Serato (as normally happens), but I wound up just pressing 'play' on my controller and resuming. Mis Emergency was still recording, so I left it alone and stopped the recording at 60 minutes. I had a killer set and was looking forward to playing it back! Unfortunately, the audio stopped at the 5 minute mark. The weird thing is when I rendered the recording, Mix Emergency did in fact 'record' for 60 minutes, but the video and audio stopped at 60 minutes...From 5 minutes on I just had a black screen. I would think if I unplugged usb or controller power that Mix Emergency would stop, but I guess not. Let me add that I do have Serato DJ Pro and the 'Serato Play' plug in enabled to play offline as well. I believe I was using Serato version 2.2.0 at the time.
