Ultimate Guide to SCS4DJ 4 years user

Recommended Posts

A Lot of users ask the same questions and I thought it best to put this all in one help file.


Browsing Folders 2 options: to view folders you need to go to playlist - view playlists.

1: using the SCS4DJ system - devices - select device - create playlist from Device - yes. restart when prompted.

2: using pc. Copy playlist.Bat file to the rout directory on your mem stick & run it - put memstick in device wait until the (working icon) goes away. Then restart.

A video is here to help


Crashing & locking up: Tags to big to handle

1: use ID KILL to empty all the info in your tags.

2: Use MP3tag no higher than Version 3.5 here

3: create Tags from filenames to track title. BPM-Key to Artist field. Tip keep tags simple



Virtual dj DB data like BPM & KEY to Tag info. Here

let VDJ analyze ur music and find the key on your stick it will create a data file. select this with the database util and select the BMP / Key to be added to the tag.

Use mp3tag to transfer BPM-Key to artist field.


Clipping & distortion:

Never overuse the new gain once clipping starts it will stay until you restart:

Use MP3Gain to make all your music the same loudness level.


SCS4DJ does not like other file formats like pictures. zipfiles. long files like films & analyzed files from soundforge temp files etc.... keep you're sticks clear of files not related to the device.

Excellent post man! The SCS4 is a great unit, but it needs to be treated in a certain way to work as intended.

This is so true - it's a lot of complicated power in a very small box...you got to treat it just right.

I have found quality of usb stick + data on it is the biggest factor determining how well the box works.

Use good + fast usb sticks, keep ONLY your music files on the stick, and make sure they are in good shape.

if some tracks are missing it will be because the audio file has no meta data ( tag info ) if the files are black it will not register the track..

find the track that's missing and check the data. the program was written by some one in the group I just collated all the best usefull programs to help others.


Good luck guys Shame Gibson have no new info or updates....
