This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
If you have ever wanted to be able to add or edit your Serato (Scratch Live or DJ) cue points whilst on the move, this app is your answer! Simply load an audio file then add or edit the cue points. You can then open these audio files in Serato and the cue points will be present.
Two modes of operation. 1) play 2) add / edit / delete.
To add a cue point, enter edit mode (small button on bottom right of the screen), scroll to where you want to place the cue point and hit one of the coloured cue pads. To delete a cue, in edit mode, press and hold the coloured cue pad you wish to delete.
To play a cue, in play mode, just hit the coloured cue pad. If the track is already playing it will jump to the cue and continue playing from the cue point. If the track is paused, a tap will simply jump to the cue point. Press and hold to jump and play. Releasing now will stop play and jump back.
To get your audio files into the app and back out when you have finished editing them, follow this simple guide:
- When first loading a file, it can take some time (a few minutes) to draw all of the main scrubbing waveform. I have developed this to draw in a background thread to allow playing of the file as soon as possible. Subsequent loads of the same file however will draw almost immediately as the images are cached as soon as they are created.
- Cue points are limited to 5. I know the very latest Serato software allows more, but screen space is limited on mobiles so I restricted to 5 in the app.
- If there is enough demand, I will add loops in a future release, so please let me know if you want this adding.
- Only 44100Hz, 16 bit, stereo files are supported (the most common format). Again, if there is enough demand, I will add other sample rates, so please email me if this is important to you.
