The feel of vinyl. The power of a computer.
Rane's Serato is one of the most popular DJ platforms in the world. With Serato, you can load and play back digital audio files from your computer, while you control the playback with a pair of Serato Control Vinyls on standard turntables (or Control CDs, in DJ CD decks). Serato's special Control Vinyls are cut with timecode information that feeds data to Serato via a digital interface. The interface translates the timecode into digital transport information that controls playback, tempo, and pitch -- so you can "scratch" your digital music files with the feel of vinyl.

Hip-hop DJs have gravitated towards Serato software due to its graphical interface that replicates two records spinning on platters. But Serato doesn't only look cool -- it's hugely popular for its stability, flexibility and sound quality. And because Serato lets you tap into all the music on your computer or external drives, DJing with Serato and two turntables is like having endless crates of vinyl records at your fingertips!

Take a look below at the components that make a world-class Serato setup, and find out how you can take your DJing to the next level.
Control Vinyl Kits / Turntables
The Rane Serato Scratch Live SL2 DJ audio interface is a fantastic way to start your Serato journey. The easy-to-use, two-channel SL2 interface comes with Serato software, a pair of Serato timecoded control vinyl records and control CDs, and RCA cables. Don't forget to pick up some replacement Rane Serato Scratch Live Vinyl records in a variety of colors.

To build your Serato setup around the SL2, you'll want two turntables. Vinyl is regarded as the premier way to get tactile control over your music, with a feel and response to the fingers that is hard to recreate with other controllers.

Remember, when you play a timecoded vinyl, no music actually plays from the vinyl record. Serato's Control Vinyls are grooved with a special frequency that sends timecode to your computer via the SL2 or other Serato interface. As you scratch and nudge the Control Vinyls, Serato software responds to your manipulations -- changing pitch and tempo on digital files you've loaded in your Serato software playlist.

Mixers
Get more control over your DJ sets when you add a mixer to your Serato setup! The Rane Sixty-One, Rane Sixty-Two Z-Trip and Rane Sixty-Four Professional 4-Channel Mixer all come with high-quality, 24-bit USB audio interfaces built in. Connect these Rane mixer directly to your computer to use it as your mixer, Serato interface, and central control hub.

Rane's line of professional DJ mixers represent some of the most innovative and reliable technology available to DJs today. Featuring non-contact magnetic crossfaders and channel faders, these Rane mixers maintain pristine sound quality with absolutely no bleed between channels. Studio-quality EQs and filters ensure that your adjustments are musical, accurate, and huge-sounding.

Pro Tip: Engage the "Echo" on the Rane Sixty-Two Z-Trip. Turn the depth to 100%, set your echo to 1:2 and pull the channel fader down until you only hear the effect tail. This is a cool way to exit songs -- opening up a world of possibilities for transitions between tracks.

Interfaces
If you're running a mixer that does not have an audio interface built-in, such as the Rane TTM56S, you will need a separate interface to send your control vinyl's timecode information to your Serato software.

It's easy to set up your Rane Serato Scratch Live SL3 or Scratch Live SL4 interface. Connect your turntables to the input section of the SL3/SL4, and connect the SL3/SL4's outputs to your mixer. Plug the SL3/SL4 into your computer via USB. Serato should recognize the interface automatically, and you can start firing tracks off from your library.

With the Scratch Live SL3, you can connect two turntables for two-channel operation. The SL3 also features an aux stereo output -- perfect for recording your DJ performance. The Scratch Live SL4 features the same aux output --and adds two more stereo channels of input and output, allowing you to connect up to four turntables!

Headphones
When you are playing in a loud club, your best friend is a good pair of headphones. Headphones are the best way to cue up the next song, match its tempo, and prepare to transition to it, without interrupting the main mix.

The Rane mixers listed above have a special headphone output called a "cue out" or "monitor out." This output is the DJ's own monitor mix: it allows you to hear the current song while you audition the next track, and sync up the tempo -- providing the audience with a seamless transition.

You'll need headphones to cue up your next track. But what's so special about DJ headphones? For starters, DJ headphones have large, circumaural, over-the-ear earcups to help isolate you from outside noise. Most DJ headphones' earcups swivel 180 degrees, so you can wear them one-sided when you want to hear what the audience hears. Look for features like a detachable, replaceable cable and a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter, and specs like a wide frequency response and high output.

Powered Speakers
If you're a mobile DJ who plays gigs outside of established clubs or bars, you'll likely going to have to bring your own sound reinforcement. Not to worry: today's PA speakers are lighter, more powerful, and simpler to use than ever before. Active, powered PA speakers with built-in amplifiers minimize the amount of gear you need to lug around. Check out the lightweight QSC K12, which includes DEEP processing to bring more bass out of your music, or consider the Mackie Thump TH15A with its large 15" woofer for supreme low-end response.

Cables
Don't ignore the quality of your cables. Cables -- while not the sexiest purchase -- are one of the most important parts of your setup. A quality cable allows your signal to reach its destination at the correct voltage, delivering the sound you intend.

The Hosa Pro Balanced REAN Dual 1/4" TRS Interconnect Cable and the Hosa HSX Pro Balanced 1/4" TRS to XLR Male Interconnect Cable can connect your mixer to your PA, while the Hosa Beatport Stereo Dual RCA to RCA Cable connects your turntables to your Serato interface.

If you need a longer USB cable to accommodate an unconventional setup, the Hosa USB 2.0 Cable (USB A to USB B) comes in a variety of lengths.
Cases
A high-quality case protects your gear from damage while on the go. The SKB 3i Series Waterproof Rane Serato Scratch Live Molded Case can accommodate the Rane TTM56S Performance Mixer or Rane SIXTY-ONE Mixer for Serato Scratch Live, along with your laptop -- all in one convenient carrying case. The affordable DeckSaver covers protect your gear from drinks and dust in between gigs.
