    Default Coloured wave forms??

    Right just wondering what exactly is their function??

    I know it allows you to tell when a vocal is coming up but is that it??

    Please and thanks

    It's actually an energy saving device: colored waveforms allow Serato users to power their computers entirely off their own sense of superiority

    do they need to be connected to Serato's forum or it works offline too?

    I really hate this forum sometimes. At least it's not as bad as the NI User's forum.

    In answer to the OP…it's a different way of visualizing track structure. Ableton doesn't really help you, it just shows the waveform. SSL and Itch give you colored waveforms where the color shows the dominant frequency band and some information about transient detection, which roughly correlates to "this is a kick; that's a snare; and that thing doesn't have a discernible beat." Traktor throws away a lot of the information to show you a more overview-like picture that lets you see track structure and beats, which would normally get lost in a single-color waveform as zoomed-out as Traktor's displays.

    I honestly like SSL's way of doing it best, and they're only a few small features away from me ditching Traktor for it.

    I think for the most part around here people try to make sure someone has at least attempted to answer the question before the smart ass remarks begin. I've definitely seen much worse netiquete in other places.

    Sorry mostapha, I'm just a smartass. No offense intended. And while I'm a Traktor guy I used to use Serato and have no disrespect for anyone based on the tools they use. Was just going for a cheap laugh based on the number of Serato users who act like colored waveforms are the be-all end-all for visual feedback. Sorry if I spoiled your afternoon
