A software/vinyl solution that works without glitches.
The verdict is in: Serato Scratch Live by Rane is way more reliable and easier to use than earlier digital/vinyl interfaces. Using regular turntables or CD players, DJs can scratch and mix files from their 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. The Rane Serato's unique control screen gives you unprecedented realtime side-by-side visual command with color-coded frequencies so you can distinguish bass and snare hits for flawless beat matching. Serato Scratch Live even lets you control song selection from the vinyl.
The Rane Scratch Live SL 1 interface connects one or two standard vinyl or CD turntables to your computer. This extremely rugged, portable, high quality, bus-powered USB interface features 2 switchable phono or line inputs, a microphone input, 2 line outputs, and pass thru outputs for the phono/line and mic.
The DJ software comes with 12" vinyl records that each have a Serato exclusive control signal which allows Rane Serato 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. You'll never have to cut a dubplate again!
