View Full Version : Questions Regarding The Pioneer DDJ S1 Controller

I just bought the DDJ S1 and have a few questions:

1. Is it possible to turn the feature off where it switches the headphone cue when you load a new song? It drives me CRAZY. I use my headphones to mix and listen to both channels at the same time, so when I transition into the next song and then load up the next one it cuts out and goes to the next deck..

2. This isn't about the controller but the ITCH software itself. Is there a way to change the tempo percentage display? It's currently set to say +3.31, +3.32, +3.33, +3.34, +3.35, +3.36, +3.37... when I move the pitch slider. Is it possible to have it just go by increments of 5, like +3.30, +3.35, +3.40, +3.45?

3. How do you remove the two stands on the left/right side of the unit so it sits flat on the table?

4. Again, not so much about the controller, but on ITCH is it possible to display both time in/out at the same time without having to click on the time lapse?

Thanks.

I don't know your controller or itch well enough to answer your questions, but I'm curious about q2.

Why would you want to do that? More pitch resolution means finer tuned, tighter, beat matching

A note they may be helpful is that pitch resolution is usually linked to pitch range. Vinyl djs are usually used to +/-8% but CDJs and controllers can vary the range and in turn the resolution.

As an example a CDJ might have 0.01 resolution on the 4% range setting, 0.05 at 8%, 0.1 at 16% and 1 at 100%

When I use CDJs I always use 10% pitch range, and it's difficult to hit the 2.90, 2.95, 3.00 (for example) dead on when using the pitch slider on this controller, I always seem to be 0.01 or 0.02 off from the pitch I want to get

Refer to the manual that came with the unit & you can download the manual for Itch but be sure you get the manual for the version you have.
