    You'd need timecode support first for such a request to be implemented. And that is coming, so I'm sure the scope/vinyl view will come with it.

    +1 for scope. When scratching with jog wheels, there is no visual marker of the position of the track. With vinyl we would put a marker sticker on the record and Pioneers have the spinning light.

    Isn't the waveform display a far better indication of the position of the track? The scope view isn't very big and not nearly as accurate as a record sticker. The playhead and the waveform, however, is far more accurate.

    I think the wave form is too small to pick out individual sounds for scratching. Perhaps if you could zoom? The issue I have is that with vinyl you can pick out a sound with the label at 12 o clock and know that when you spin it back to the point the sound is there. One thing I had to get used to with the S4 is not having a reference on the platter. An accurate scope would be nice as a visual reference to 'virtual' platter rotation.

    Just seen that, thanks. I would still prefer a spinning platter indication, probably due to many years of scratching the old fashioned way. Time to get used to those cue points!

    Yes I noticed that too. I did try to mess with the tsi file to enable them but no luck. Anyone know if this is possible without buying scratch?

    +1 i would like to have this for the midi decks on S4 simply to make juggling easier...spinning back waveforms is far too complex on my eyesight when focusing on quick maneuvers. the black needle is a much simpler method that's worked fine for decades.
