Serato Performance-Serie Vinyl Black

I have played almost all of my dj gigs with the Serato software since January Nowadays these software solutions do much much more than what the name DVS implies, but the core function is still the same that it was in when Serato Scratch Live was introduced.

The fundamental idea is taking a traditional dj setup with either turntables or cd players or both , and instead of playing actual records vinyl or cd , the music comes from a computer.

So instead of music, the physical records used with a DVS contain a timecode signal that is send to the software, which in turn controls the audio file. What I want to know is how it actually works, and how accurate it can be.

To control the playback of the digital audio files and enable things like scratching, where the direction and speed of the playback changes rapidly, the timecode has to describe the current playback speed, direction and position accurately and reliably. Listening to the control vinyl, the directional tone is the 1 kHz tone. But how does it actually work? From the frequency spectrum we can confirm that the signal is indeed exactly 1 kHz, and looking at the waveforms both channels contain the same sine wave, but the phase of the right channel is 90 degrees ahead.

From here we can already deduce two of the three control parameters. Speed Detecting speed changes is really straightforward. Therefore one can just do a quick Fourier transform, for example using STFT , to get the frequency and then calculate the corresponding speed.

The performance limiting factor here is the frequency resolution of the Fourier transform, i. This means it would take one second to read a change in the speed with this accuracy since we need samples for the FFT. One second between speed readings is not good. Therefore for the FFT calculation, the sampling rate could be lowered to as low as , which gives an usable frequency range of Hz, that covers the range of the control signal.

One possible method would be to just stay in the time domain, and look at the length of one period, since. Direction This one is also very simple. This could be detected in many ways, and ideally it only takes two consecutive samples to determine the direction, which would be really fast.

Assuming that we take a whole one period of the signal to detect the direction, it would still only take around one millisecond on normal speed. Position Now comes the hard part. This is were the so called NoiseMap comes in. We need to have some sort of sequence or pattern in the signal that tells us where we are, i. The simplest way to interpret this would be to just look at the positive part and assume two amplitude levels: The first 64 binary values extracted with this method: Reading this marker would take 16 periods, which corresponds to 16 milliseconds one period is at normal speed.

The A-side on the Serato vinyl is 10 minutes s long and the B-side is 15 minutes s , so there are and wave periods per side. Of course by using more amplitude levels, and for example by taking the absolute value of the sine wave it would be possible to pack a lot more data into one period.

However, in this old interview from , Dylan Wood from Serato says the following: Behind the Scenes: Imagine that timecode is like going along a road, and you [need to] pass a certain number of markers until you know where you are. Also, what has been bothering me is that why does the control signal sound so noisy, when the frequency spectrum shows only a single tone. First, here is a reference spectrogram for a regular 1 kHz tone: Serato control signal: There is clearly something interesting going on here.

The first Serato spectrogram looks a little bit like a QR code, and zooming in there seems to be patterns in the spectrum. This might indeed be what Serato calls their noisemap. This seems like a good place to stop my analysis, since everything further would just be pure speculation.
