    Exclamation Help: Timecode + VCI-100se = disaster!

    I know this has come up before but I'm wondering if there is any solution, and I'm not sure whether the culprit is the NI software or the VCI-100 tsi. Basically, I want to use my VCI-100se AND my turntables, in either internal or external mode, with timecode vinyl. The problem is that if a deck is in timecode mode and I accidentally touch the jog wheel, the whole system goes crazy for a few seconds, the song speeds up unnaturally and it's just a massive mess. Is there any way around this? (besides the obvious, don't touch the jog wheel) Does this happen with other controllers and tsis or just this one? Is there a way to map the tsi so that if I touch the jog wheel in timecode mode, the deck switches to internal mode but doesn't go nuts? Any other workarounds people have come up with? It's way too easy to accidentally touch the platter, especially if you're mixing internally and you're used to playing on the vci. Thanks!

    I managed to get round it by just deleting the part of the tsi that assigns the two jog wheels to decks A + B. I also deleted the part that assigns the cue & play/pause buttons as well because they caused havoc when using timecode as well. Hope this helps.

    if you have firmware 1.2 you can activate the 'jogwheel cancel mode' by pressing both vinyl-mode buttons same time.

    That works in 1.3 as well.

    Nice -- you guys just changed my life. Seriously that's exactly what I needed - I had no idea the VCI had this mode. Of course, it doesn't solve the underlying problem, it just means I have to remember to hit two buttons rather than remembering to not hit the jog wheel, but that might be easier to do Does anyone know if NI is already working on this bug? It seems like traktor should have a way of failing gracefully when it encounters unexpected situations like the timecode/jogwheel conflict, rather than going completely bananas like it does. (Dare I hope for a fix in the next-gen traktor? heh) Anyway thanks for the help!
