Product Description

Serato Scratch Live by Rane, bridges the gap between vinyl and digital in that it gives you the ability to take your turntables out of storage and back into the studio, wherein you no longer have to scratch using your mouse, but rather you can scratch your MP3s in real-time using your own turntables. It is easy to hook up using the included interface, which connects to both turntables and laptop; you can even connect a microphone to hype your audience. iTunes integration - Use your playlists and iTunes library Play and scratch tracks direct from CD and CD-ROM Absolute Mode - exact reproduction of record movement, needle drop through tracks just like normal vinyl Relative Mode - skip free scratching, jump to cue points, and pitch bend buttons combined with turntable control Internal Mode - mix with just your laptop using features modeled on DJ CD players; on-the-fly looping, save up to 9 loops per track Auto mode - play a sequence of tracks automatically Vinyl select mode - Use your turntable to pick the next song without touching the keyboard Full track overview - Quickly find where the beat drops, find breakdowns and choruses Gain setting per song file Hot swap external drives with fast automatic library merging and retention of crates No preprocessing of MP3 files required Instant doubles, load the same track on both decks at the same point for instant flange effect and back-to-backs Sample from vinyl - use the hardware to record direct from your vinyl Interface SL1 - USB 1.1 (full speed) interface with ultra-low latency drivers; Bus-powered for fast, simple set up Phono level inputs for direct connection of 2 turntables to your computer, no phono preamp required Line level inputs - No extra hardware required for CD decks and line-level turntables Input-thru - Switch instantly back to regular vinyl Microphone input with adjustable gain; Microphone thru output

Ok I'm rating this as compared to other digital vinyl solutions. I'm among the few that have owned and used 3 different DVSs (Final Scratch 2, Serato Scratch Live and Traktor Scratch). I currently own both SSL and TS.

First off, I do use vinyl and none of the DVS can truly compare to actual vinyl. High quality mp3s, they still fall short.

But Serato is the best of all the ones I've used for 2 simple reasons: 1) Customer support (their forums are great and they are always coming out with FREE updates) and 2) user interface (not alot of features but clean and simple; just what I need).

Pros:
Best customer support for DJs
Simple intuitive user interface
Great low latency, great for scratching

Cons:
No recording input on box
ASIO support is not great

Traktor Scratch wins on scratching though. TS sounds better when scratching. The Audio8 DJ that comes with TS is great. The multicore cables are great (I use it with my Serato actually).

Pros:
Great sounding scratches, closest sounding to real vinyl
Beautiful looking and functioning hardware (Audio8DJ & cables)
Software offers many more features than SSL

Cons:
Ugly looking software interface
Customer support has not been great (not just for me; check their forums for proof)

SSL has been around for a while and you can say that the hardware is outdated but it works the way it needs to. I'm a scratch DJ / turntablist and SSL does the job for me. I've shelved Traktor Scratch for now, only using the A8DJ to record my mixes from Serato and the cables.

The first concern about this product is whether there is any lag during scratching, and amazingly, there is absolutely none. It works just as you'd want it to, completely naturally. It's hard to believe that you're actually manipulating a digital file when you scratch or speed up or stop the control record. You can even put the stylus down a little way into the control record and the song will start at whatever point that represents. Plus, you can use your turntable to scroll through your songlists.

The software interface is classy and well-designed, and the actual control box is solid. It's a pretty amazing product - a great idea, so simple, yet so effective. My only concern is that it encourages the move away from vinyl, and frankly, the sound quality hit you take with MP3 is pretty big. But not everybody can lug cases of vinyl around and so, I really wouldn't hesitate about buying one of these.

This is a good product and very useful to any type of DJ. I am a battle dj and I have been able to put togeather the perfect compilation mp3 of all my favorite sounds and movie clips so that I can scratch them. This is a great thing. There is absolutely no lag time in scratching which is key. I have not used it yet at a club but the ease factor of not having to lug a crate of records is very nice.

However, there are some probs I would not use this at a club unless you have complete trust in your computer. I have a new Apple Macbook less than a year old and the ram is at minimum requirement, for this product. If you do not have a new computer, I would upgrade that before buying this product. If you take this to a club and your computer crashes or overheats you may be in big trouble with no records on hand. Also, I cannot believe the dip in sound quality that you get using MP3's. MP3's that I have on my computer that sound fine in my car and on my Ipod sound too lound when played through scratch live. I have to run these tracks through the Garageband program on my laptop to turn down the sound acouple db. Obviously that is a long and annoying process. Also you cannot use scratch live with songs downloaded from the Itunes website. There for only mp3's downloaded from free sites can be used. So in some cases I have had to download a track from a free site that I already have paid for from Itunes. Again this is another annoying step to getting togeather your library of Mp3's.

Overall I like the product it will be useful for me, but I would recommend only to people who have very new or very powerful computers.

Update: I should have changed this review earlier but forgot I wrote it. The sound levels problem I had is fixed simple issue, I got the answer on the Scratch Live msg board. Mods are very through about responding to questions. It is def the best msg board for Dj's

Peace,
