Rane SL4 Serato DJ InterfaceThe SL4 gives you the freedom to take your entire digital music collection on the road with advanced Serato features that add extra creativity to your DJing. This intuitive digital vinyl system replicates the traditional DJing experience for "real feel" usability.
The Rane SL4 USB 2.0 interface connects up to four vinyl or CD turntables to your computer using a single USB cable with audio connections to line inputs on your DJ mixer of choice. It is the first standalone DJ interface with two USB ports for seamless DJ changeover and back-to-back performances.
This system includes Serato DJ software and is compatible with Scratch Live. Rane's Core Audio and ASIO drivers connect to other popular DJ and DAW software. This package includes four 12" Serato Control Vinyl records, four Serato Control CDs, 2 USB cables, and 6 RCA audio cables to your mixer. An international power supply with country adaptors is included to insure continuous performance during USB changes between DJs. A soft zippered carrying case for the SL4 is included.

Includes Serato DJ SoftwareRane is pleased to announce that products which previously included Serato Scratch Live software are now fully supported by and include Serato DJ software. DJs currently using Serato Scratch Live with supported Rane hardware have the option to migrate to the new and improved Serato DJ free of charge. If you're familiar with Scratch Live, the transition to Serato DJ is easy and intuitive. Serato DJ is a free upgrade supporting the Sixty-One, Sixty-Two, Sixty-Eight, SL2, SL3, and SL4.
Serato DJ provides support for DVS (digital vinyl system), iZotope FX, Sync, Slip Mode, more Cue points, jump-to-loop, an improved 24-slot sampler and takes advantage of the high performance, ultra-low latency Rane ASIO and Core Audio drivers. Both programs share compatible song libraries, the same general workflow and deck layout.
Upgrading is optional -- Serato Scratch Live will still work with the Sixty-One, Sixty-Two, Sixty-Eight, SL2, SL3, and SL4. You can have both programs installed, and use one or the other. You can also use the included Core Audio and ASIO drivers to run any other popular DJ and DAW software program you like.
Ultra-Low-Latency Core Audio and ASIO DriversRane's ultra-low-latency, multi-client ASIO and Core Audio drivers set the standard for USB streaming devices, working with all the major DJ and DAW software programs.
Rane ASIO (PC) and Core Audio (Mac) drivers allow use with multiple third-party software applications supporting Core Audio or ASIO. ASIO and Core Audio drivers are multi-client, meaning they allow multiple applications on a computer to share the device at the same time. When using a Rane product with Serato Scratch Live, proprietary Serato Audio Research drivers are used in place of Rane ASIO and Core Audio drivers. These drivers are used when Scratch Live is not running.
Take these industry standard drivers and unleash your Rane audio device on any professional software package of your choice. These drivers are fast and reliable, designed for professionals with demanding needs.
Compatible with Serato Scratch Live SoftwareFor legacy users, Serato Scratch Live provides a tight and authentic digital vinyl system with its unique, non-time-based Serato Noisemap control signal. Organize and browse your music collection, load music files onto Virtual Decks for playback, manage Cues, Loops and Samples, and add powerful DJ Effects. The Serato Video software plug-in for Scratch Live adds the ability to playback, mix and add effects to video files. Serato's Bridge plug-in allows you to record your Serato DJ performances as Ableton Live Sets, and play Ableton Live Sets with your turntables or CDJs.
Four Decks, Two Laptops plus Aux In and OutTo get the most from your SL4, use a mixer that provides four or five line-level input buses. The SL4 Aux output can deliver the output of the SP-6 sample player to it's own mixer input. The SL4 Aux input can record your entire set from your mixer's Aux output.
You can share an SL4 with another DJ and another laptop. The included Core Audio (Mac) or ASIO (Windows) drivers allow the SL4 to act as a dual 10-in 10-out USB external sound card for use with all popular DJ and DAW audio software.
The SL4 accepts turntable outputs or CD line input levels with individual front panel switches. The studio-grade phono preamp RIAA equalization in the SL4 is extremely accurate, for the best sound from your vinyl. The SL4 accepts 3Vrms inputs from CD decks and line devices without clipping, and outputs 3Vrms to the mixer without clipping. Other interfaces can't handle this much signal.
Rugged and Compact Die-cast DesignA rugged die-cast design ensures your SL device is road-worthy and able to take a beating. A Kensington Security slot allows your device to be locked-down with a security cable.
Includes Power Supply and Deck Thrus for Playing Regular Vinyl and CDsYou can use your SL4's Deck Thrus to play regular, analog vinyl and CDs. The SL4 must be powered by USB or the included external power supply for the Analog Deck Thrus to work, which are turned on and off in the driver Control Panel.
If external power is not connected, the SL4 draws its power from one of the USB ports. Plugging in an external supply removes the power drain from the USB ports. Power switching is automatic, and the SL4 continues to operate uninterrupted as long as a power source is available. The universal power supply includes different input plugs for the USA, Europe, UK and Australia.
To remove both laptops and keep a set going with regular vinyl or CD:
- Plug the included external power supply into AC and to the SL4.
- Activate the Analog Feed Thru for the Decks you want to hear in the control panel. Green indicators on the SL4 remind you of the Thru channels.
- Unplug any USB cables from the SL4, and your turntable and mixer continue to play.
Galvanic Isolation Separates Computer Noise from AudioUnits without galvanic isolation are susceptible to noise from connected computers. Galvanic Isolation guarantees audio from your mixer and decks is actively isolated from USB and power sources, eliminating ground loops and computer noise. Connect your device in any environment with confidence that it will be noise-free.
