Rane Serato Scratch Live Computer DJ

Remember when you were first learning how to scratch? Remember what happened to your sister's copy of Blondie's Eat To The Beat? Remember the beating she gave you when she found out? Even after that painful experience, you still practiced your turntable skills, till finally you've become the deck-master you are today. Still, you're reminded of that prodigious beat-down every time you have to replace a needle-shredded LP, every time you pull a heat-warped album out of its sleeve, and every time you load your vinyl crates into your car. Wouldn't it be nice, in this digital age, to be able to do away with costly and burdensome vinyl, but still retain the tactile control and familiar feel of DJing on a turntable? With Rane Serato Scratch Live, you can!

Serato has been revolutionizing the DJ world since its introduction in 2004. Using timecode-engraved vinyl discs (or CDs), Serato Scratch provides real-vinyl control over digital audio files. All the inconveniences of vinyl are done away with, while the satisfying and expressive feel that only LPs can provide remains intact. Hesitant to scratch on that that rare pressing of Dancing in Your Head? Load up the digital version and cut away! Tired of lugging your LP library with you to gigs? Access your multiple-Gigs' worth of music directly from your laptop! Can't seem to find that one Can track your buddy told you about? Just get it online and stop wasting hours going through the shelves of every record store in town!

The Rane Serato Scratch Live package comes with everything you'll need to join the virtual vinyl revolution, including two vinyl timecode LPs, two timecode CDs, and the virtually bulletproof SL1 audio interface. The SL1's low-profile and folded steel chassis can take a beating, as well as deliver pristine, 16-bit 44.1k digital-to-analog audio conversion and transmit all timecode control info from you to the Serato Scratch software.

If you've been a long-time vinyl DJ, you'll appreciate the fact that the Serato system works with the turntables or CD decks you currently use, and the fact that the rock-solid Serato timecode tracks every move you make on the control vinyl, with zero lag time. When Serato says "every move," they mean every move, including needle drops, backspins, power-downs and any other technique you've developed on the wheels of steel. If you're new to DJing, you'll love Scratch's self-explanatory interface and simple setup. The SL1 interface connects to your decks and sound system via common RCA jacks (phono or line-level!), and to your laptop via USB. There's a dedicated microphone input and an external line input on the interface for additional sound sources like iPods or regular CD players. You can even switch back to spinning regular vinyl right through the SL1. . . no extra mixing equipment required! For beginners and pros alike, the Serato Scratch Software will take your DJ skills to the next level. Beat-mapping and gain adjustments can be set to automatic, making the vinyl DJ learning curve a little less steep for novices, and letting experienced users focus on developing even more complex tricks.

Reliability, ingenuity and high-fidelity come together perfectly with Rane Serato Scratch Live, the quickest way to enter the 21st century and the era of the Digital DJ.

Rane Serato Scratch Live Computer DJ

Scratch LIVE is the ultimate software and hardware solution for bridging the analog world of vinyl and the digital world of computer audio files. Using regular turntables or CD players, you can scratch and mix files from your Mac or Windows XP computer's CD or hard drive, add in a live mic input for scratching, and even bypass to standard vinyl if you wish. Scratch LIVE is the complete digital solution for the vinyl junkie - take your entire collection wherever you go and leave your precious vinyl at home!

The Scratch LIVE USB interface connects one or two standard vinyl or CD turntables to your computer. This extremely rugged, portable, high quality, bus-powered USB interface features two switchable phono or line inputs, a microphone input, two line outputs, and pass thru outputs for the phono/line and mic.

The included 12 in. vinyl records (2nd Edition) each have Serato's exclusive and unique control signal which allows Scratch LIVE to track the motion of the record, simulating the same movement with digital audio. Due to Serato's proprietary control scheme, the result is a feel and sound indistinguishable from playing vinyl. As a producer and DJ, the track you finished today can be played on a real turntable tonight.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (124 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "If you're considering buying a DJ CD player, reconsider."
Sound: Transparent audio. If you have good source files, it's impossible to tell it from vinyl. Feature: The only thing I wish it had is a way to record mixes within the program itself. MIDI support and a sampler would be nice but that's not really within the scope of the product. Ease of Use: Takes a few minutes for setup (make sure you do the phono calibration in the manual), after that it's really intuitive. Read the manual, there are a lot of really convenient shortcut keys that aren't that obvious (but there are on-screen buttons you can click on if you don't want to read it). Quality: Totally solid. Value: The stanton setup does a little bit more for the same money, but SSL is much more solid and responsive. Manufacturer Support: Free email support that gets back to you within 24 hours. Free upgrades to the software as long as the hardware is supported. The Wow Factor: Other DJs wish they had this... I only have to carry 2 records and a laptop with me to shows. Overall: After having this for a year and a half, I can't even think about going back. It totally changed how I DJ.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The best DVS out there!!"
Sound: Serato Scratch Live is the industry standard when it comes to DVS, it is that way for a reason. I have used Scratch Live for about 4 years and never had a single crash. I gave the sound a 9 only because the SL3 is a better sounding interface, but you will be good with the SL1. Feature: It has all the featured I need, and all the features any DJ would need. With the newer versions of Scratch Live, new features such as effects have been added. Ease of Use: The set up is super easy, its a product that just works straight out of the box!! The interface is the best looking interface of any DVS, easy to read layout!! Value: The best investment I ever made!! Manufacturer Support: You can go to serato.com and pretty much find any answer you are looking for, or you can ask a question and get an answer quickly! The Wow Factor: The best looking DVS out there, looks professional and is professional. Overall: I have found my solution, no need to look elsewhere.
Style of Music: Hip Hop, Top 40, Dance
