    Default Itch - "Elastic" beat grids on the way.

    Morning!!

    I've just been digging through a topic over in the serato forum, talking about the upcoming Itch V2.

    http://www.serato.com/forum/discussion/189475

    It looks like Itch is getting elastic beat grids!!

    Here's a quote from one of the Serato forum's moderators

    Hey Guys,

    The beat grid will deal with tracks that have changing tempo's as well, you will be able to to map out bar positions to deal with songs that aren't a constant BPM. If you sync a straight track to something that changes speed either the straight track will change speed to follow or the "funky" track will get kept in time depending on which track is the master and which one is being synced.

    Hopefully that makes sense.

    Cheers
    dylan.
    Cheers

    With this news and the controller featured last week, Itch is looking very good all of a sudden, Traktor should be a little concerned they don't get left behind.

    I bought an NS7 hoping to go back to traktor, but with Itch's new features, that might not happen!

    Haha i wouldnt be concerned, Itch 2.0 isnt even out yet and Traktor Pro has this kinda style griding on its way too(though theres no definite release date)

    Itch has A HELL of alot of catching up to do to catch up to Trakor (though itch does have its own unique advantages - mainly HID compatibility with a few controllers).

    Worry about whats best for the moment, not what might be the best option around the corner

    For the record: Dont take me the wrong way here, definitely not Itch/Serato hating here ! Its good to see this progress, it keeps the competition on their toes and promotes competition between the companies which is awesome for us users.

    i'm not sold on itch yet... all the "new" features (minus elastic beatgridding) that they're introducing have been available to traktor users since the release of traktor 3 ..... 4 years ago? LOL

    Serato has a long way to go if they want to compete with Traktor in the controller dj market. I'm still waiting to see what their partnership with Ableton will bring, as it is I'm pretty underwhelmed by Serato.

    This elastic grid is one of the first glimpses of what the partnership might be bringing!

    Kinda with BentoSan on this one. Newer doesn't necessarily mean better. Heck, Hawtin still seems to be using an older version of Traktor because it's stable and does *exactly* what he wants. Like a lot of the guys I know who streamlined their live PA settings, you often find folks sticking with what' proven and works once they've gone to all the trouble of streamlining and optimizing their workflow...

    OMG how many times. Ritchie Hawtin is not using Traktor 3. He is on TPRO exclusively . Dont be fooled by old videos that keep getting posted.

    TPRO is as stable as any other version, more so in fact.


    On Topic:
    Interesting that Itch will (eventually have) a warp like feature. Pitty there isnt a 2 deck Demo of Itch to try out.

    Ha! Sorry, Karlos - My bad. Don't follow the forums as closely as I'd like. I just remembered a lot of chatter about this from way back when.

    Note: I didn't mean to come across as saying TPro isn't stable. Been using it - very happily - for 8 months now. But... original point was - If something works really, really well for you, why bother changing systems or programs for a single bell or whistle?
