Described and redescribed moult once!

GETTING STARTED

Oula! me who does not like pc (because they are always right ^ ^) short simple never seen easier! you plug it installed and it's over no adjustments or other

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I do not like a racing pc, but no problems on that side of it either.

OVERALL OPINION

J'viens OCCAZ to buy this week and nothing to say about all work correct!
HOnet there is no secret, it's really a product "pro", no brainer to install, adjust, you plug>> it works! is royal!

a year ago I had mixvibes U46DJ + sound card, after much disappointment, setting, decision-head ... after 2 months I still had a bug soucy, skip reading etc ...

jl'ai sold quickly and I got a little rétissant on this kind of config, but since it niquel serato!

Here you have the budget difficult thing I agree, go live there I think it's one or one meets almost no problem compared to others.
One has only to see his side argus, it still does not move (much like the history of the mk2!)

I am very satistfait product is portable easy to install,
for my trip to disquothèque when you're pa resident and the onchange is often very practical Deplus he did not need a big config on the PC to function!
I use it with two turntables and sometimes with cdj ca is a great product

GETTING STARTED

Installation is nikel
but since the record is in English you must download the
Deplus scratch live is not compatible with windows sp1 or earlier so be careful to do the updates
Finally I find some functions néamoins missing software

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I use a Windows XP SP3 with an AMD 3200 + 1G ram sound card 4.1 and graphics card via internal
Despite the age of my pc lol the system works perfectly

OVERALL OPINION

This will make 6 months and I still had big pa worries
I love the sound quality it produces and precision data
However, when you need to scan all the sound you have the settings for the operation may seem long to see for very long file by file is very galley
Deplus it is still expensive but good when you have a passion that is Ash's pa
I do it again this choice without cowardice when last I hesitate even other than Paris

CHARACTERISTICS the Elementals that have motivated my choice is simple: bring with you your résumé discothque it even on a hard drive a few hundred grams, its stability ups rgulires days and free, its simplicity of use, total effects dpouillement unnecessary ism's vinyl for the purists and multi-lingual forum on www.scratchlive.net
its use is polymorphic, whether hip-hop scratcher and mixer plutt all tendencies, this software is standard for simplicity and sound reproduction, especially coupled his mother's 'TTM57 sl'
Toshiba Qosmio laptop configured on G3O, HDD 160GB and WD 250GB external Centrino Duo 1.83 GHz, 1024 DDR2 RAM, GeForce Go 7600, Windows XP2 MDIA-center.
I use the coupled TTM57 of monitors and speakers amplified XLR, by command of vinyl technics sl 1200 mk2 (they have ten years), cell: Ortofon OM PRO, I play trance, techno, house and oldies ... trs a good software now controlled via the CDJ400, and other readers DNH5500 fashion for newcomers, it's the software!

GETTING STARTED

Installation is simple and intuitive, it is still necessary to read English, or find info on the net, do not be lazy ...
I never once encountered incompatibility I did runs on Windows XP1 and a laptop prhistorique, the module coupled SL1
the configuration is simple, it is still necessary to take time to read the manual and the instructions of the official site
the manual is in English only, some users happily offer a version closer to the original Frenchified Forum in AF and scratchlive.net

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I only lment of review during the configuration was the Premire rafrachissemnt for display which rowed a little when my laptop was 4 to 5 hours of use. as this, the problem was therefore my laptop and not the log
my config is super stable if I compare everything I read here and in fact I think many users do not have enough time during the implementation of SSL, which amne crash often invited

OVERALL OPINION

I use Serato Scratch Live for about 3 years
The most simple and efficient, well-thought interface and without unnecessary overhead
minimum: heuuuuu, I can not see!
Yes, I tried things that make noise and that a price monnaient hell
I will not name them to avoid the public is against the law in relation to a commercial DLit I remind you, notice to members pseudo non sponsoriss!
qualitprix the report is correct in general, remember that you pay a housing Rane but also dveloppeurs software serato, so it is cheaper, but can suck up day !!
I do it again this choice with his eyes closed, by the way I had bought the very first time (SL1) on a head shot as a test without having anything on the forums There's good also .....

What motivated my choice is that this material is essential, the weight of vinyl records as well as the costs of these are the digital bataillr won for me, of course there is the mix of vinyl records.

My purpose is rather vary, I am so my general dj serato runs every music course celu it is more appropriate when I play my style of music-Electro House.

To handle this I use a laptop 1.5 ghz processor coupled to 1024 MB of memory with Windows XP, I also use a WD 320GB external hard drive for my zics.

GETTING STARTED

The installation was done: very fast, took only 5 minutes and again I took my time.
I have met difficulties because of the itunes music because I buy a lot on this surface (Hint: Choose the version 256KB: bits) but mp3 is nickel.

The config is simple, learn many keyboard shortcuts you will be very useful.

No manual is not easy, fortunately, are in English you use the "?" that will guide and forums "Scratch and AudioFanzine"

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The drivers have no problem level, I have a version 1.8.2 can say that his moves with his versions and quite a few improvements.

No latency between the party harware and software.

I never record with not notice.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 months every weekend, what I like most to travel with only my pc c + discs and everything. of course all music is in my pc.Sinon product reliability is also exemplaire.Ce I love the curves of the music for the frequencies. is the system storage

I can not find this expensive product (purchase € 450) because it replaces two turntables cd you so if you have a laptop that is right for you.

With the experience I would do this choice, although now I prefer to invest in the table mixagge ttm-57 with Serato integrated video + ssl. But not any concern serato = 100%

- What characteristics have motivated your choice?
The new version 1.8 which includes loops, cues, and native support for the wheel on the HC4500 DN. (Seems that the 1.8.1 will be in full).

- For what purpose?
Mix 95%

- What is your config (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)?
An old laptop with an XP2400 + PB M, 480Mo of RAM and 32MB of shared video (that is happiness! )

- Which instruments and systems (console, preamp, DTD ...) you use it and how connections? ...
PDX 2300 & DJM707 and as soon as available HC4500 DN & DN X050 (subject to successful 1.8.1).

GETTING STARTED

- The installation is done it without problems?
Theoretically yes, actually the 1.6 I reported a problem where mass or 1.8 does not move with nothing changed (weird). Impossible to have perfect circles but apparently it does not interfere with the app.

- Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
No, just reduce the level of graphical refresh and latency not to gun down my pc.

- The general configuration is easy?
Yes, I think that's the main argument of this app.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

- What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
- The software works he correctly on this configuration?

This is where it gets stuck, an old laptop with an XP2400 + PB M, 480Mo of RAM. With the 1.6 it was going, the new 1.8 is much heavier and so my pc is a little head at times. (Stalls).
Disabling the TC I get to save 20/25% cpu occupancy, with a MIDI controller so it could still go some time.

- What performance? (If quantifiable)
Good, just 2-3 stalls / hour. It would increase latency but sensation level it becomes inconsistent, so I made a choice ...

- This software + hardware is stable?
I have not yet bcp mixed with this version but I did not crash.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
I kept my 1.6, one week, the 1.8 I've had it about 1 month.

- What is so special that you like most and least?
The sound quality (compared to a dedicated box with other soft).
The visual: the colors of waveforms troubles my sight, and that information will be essential in the white circle in the marker.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes bcp, bcp, I had just tested or I would avoid the listing ...

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Prohibitive: 600euros why not exaggerate, you pay the brand. A product I would like any more € 350/400.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Well, for now it's mixed. You need a big machine to run it but they started to realize additional functions and south. In addition to the development of ITCH will certainly benefit Scratch Live as well. So yes, provided ...

I bought it in late 2006 and I installed the latest software available on a small pc of 2001 that does not even have the USB 2.O
I am more than happy and I admit that a m'vite collosaux costs of purchase or acquisition of vintage vinyl (like the 250 vinyl - it's not a joke) among others. Without having value as piracy sounds I use in gnral fell into the public domain for ages.

In technical terms on a turntable:

The tracking is excellent and all positions Absolute / Relative / particulirement apprciables are intelligent.
The management of shortcuts is very well thought and actually a manip keyboard complete without the mouse pad is made intuitive because Grable.

+ A big, big + for tracking in scratch, once the calibration - super simple to do - is set up, round trips on the vinyl are good quality trs.
Sometimes I lose track of a long session (but when I practice and not the concert) and only on trs quick cuts, such as Flares 1-2 3-clicks, and when the pc a long running and I'm just a.

The five points are trsractifs cues and allow a lot of small pleasures found on the turntables CDs, you do not, however, the same effect - at least I did not find - that one can have on a Cdj 1000 MK2 CD stopping position and pushing the jog, or even some slow motion effect, but this is normal after all, the software will not be a prtend object that replaces the Traktor or other apps, it does sound qu'muler numrique on vinyl or CD media (the coup Obviously the absence of effects I mentioned above, is more to consider if you work on a CD player)

The loop effect is quite frankly, prcis with a good management of the recovery of the beginning of the loop, there is no knock as one might hear on some soft drinks or platinum CDs. Knowing that most effect the loop can be controlled by the vinyl was still a pleasure.

- A little less for the cut point. You can sometimes find that 5 cue points is not enough, you can always cheat by renaming mp3's and adding a 5-SERIES cue points, and by playing on the other deck, but must admit that it ' is a little look to take the head. It could be that the latest version of software provides hot-cues in addition to the five pre-Defines but I have not yet sought.

- A little less for the pilot loop effect directly on the desktop, the timing is inconvenient, at least for someone like me who comes from the vinyl - and I can not get a timing of the beginning and prcis end of the loop without using a tray or a jog, then relative position.

- Still less for the multi-loop, which grate is difficult sometimes when we want to direct more stalling, since we do dfile positions 1/2/3 etc ... to get its loop.

+ A reading of the spectrum, trs trs is useful for me, who am trs visual, and that previously used the paths for me again.

+ The microphone jack with the recorder. Sometimes I record my music live and use the samples with strong cue-points.
It can also record a vinyl or a deck, I never tried but may be we can record the session scratch, I do not think has not at all.
- Can not save the two decks at the same time.

Technical character that motivated my choice:

The almost unlimited possibilities (7 min or 10 min) to mulate all sounds.
The absence of parasites ds wear grooves of vinyl.
The large solid-CODS hard time, the redemption price plutt cheap bte all the possibility to return the disc, if by chance a silent face scratched.

Which need:

From scratch first. All the techniques are applicable with certain limitations evokes, but can equally well be linked poor quality of a cell reading that low processing give the computer.

Which Systm:

2 pdx Mk2 Pro Vestax home
Stanton Trackmasters II cells, RS for one, sometimes Ortofon Gold.
A mixer Ecler Hak360

GETTING STARTED

No bp compatibility trs the app is just greedy.
The manual is a little dated, is that of version 1.4 but a pdf version of the forums and good call quality day additions.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

An old Compaq with 512 Ram, and a pro. something ghz.
USB 1.o (the motherboard has never t flashes)

I happened to have some bugs, and for restarting, but never on scne.
My computer is not very young and do multi-chih (like sending a CD in the drive at the same time) is not recommended for all fawns.

OVERALL OPINION

More than eight months now.
Trs flexibility of use.
I tried Stanton THE FIRST version of this kind of app that's me.
It is certainly expensive, but still a good value trs qualitprix knowing that I have an unlimited possibility to play what I want.
A choice that I do not regret.

CHARACTERISTICS For that motivated my choice: I think above all reliability. I had tried other programs but I must say that I Serato bleuf its stability and reliability of use.
I mix with Serato for almost a year for each of my accessories and I've never had any problems.
Here is my configuration: 2 SL1200 MK2 turntables, one mixer ECLER HAK 360, an iBook G4 1.20 GHz with 768 MB Ram running on Mac OS X 10.4.9. I chose an Apple laptop for its reliability and stability. And finally an external hard drive from Iomega Minimax 160 gg in Firewire.

GETTING STARTED

For the installation I had no problem, everything was configured Manir simple. In addition to the iBook's really easy as you branches you click on Scratch-Live, and has gone to sessions mix.
We can also prepare its iTunes playlist thanks in advance.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

For use in the evening was really great, no more tray 50 kg and hard rays or even flights (lol). Scratch-Live is a marvel of simplicity of use, super fluid. For the same mix, the interface on the screen allows us a very good visibility of sound. The mix is ​​even easier because now in addition repert sound, we have a visual repert because the oscillations are listed and rated dfile vertically. It's really nice pens.

OVERALL OPINION

I might burn out a good slogan but it is the phrase that says it all: I RVer Serato did!
Serato is, I think the evolution of deejaying. At first I was super skeptical, but after trying it was adopted.
Despite its high price compared to its competitor's price is justified.
Serato is the future!

I chose this interface for a simple reason trs I prefried peter spcial a vinyl that I can recommend if necessary plutt a drive that no longer exists on the market. Other practical, no need to carry super heavy vinyl bins.
Latter motivates this choice is being able to mix all the sounds spciaux, jingles and even my components in the same Manir a traditional disk. The concept is simply gnial.

USB connector on a laptop Acer Aspire 1522 with a CPU AMD64 3000 + (1.8GHz) 512Mb 60Gb HD and the trs Systm is stable. The laptop rgule speed and with Serato on PC remains a speed of 800MHz in permanence. There is therefore no need for a PC "extraordinary" to use it.

GETTING STARTED

The installation is very simple, connect the interface and installing the driver and software. No worries.

I have not met the incompatibility of my config, on the other hand, there is a spcial forum for this type of device, users do not complain either.

The software is very easy RULES, there is not much paramtre rgler except that the buffer of the USB signal and calibration.

The manual when he, I did not read to learn something but it seems that each item is properly explained.

Do not fault either of the ct.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The drivers are apparently stable, I have several times used the software in the evening and suddenly, as I carry nothing like conventional discs, the Systm must run all night. This test is also trs conclusive since no crash has raised t date.

I do not know if the drivers are being updated for 4 months but I use Systm, I received a new version of software (free of course) and now a new beta version is available. Rane uses several outsiders who test the software and provides them with critical permance Rane into account.

Systm latency is low trs, which must be in the scratching, the PC will need a powerful, simple to the mix, it can be increased to a little machine mnager I really do not know the exact value but in any case the raction is instant and I have never seen the diffrence use with an ordinary disk.

The version I use does not register. But the version 1.5 (currently beta) lets you save the record signal via the inputs. Thing I did not test, but proof is that the software always s'amliore.

OVERALL OPINION

As mentioned above, I served for four months, everything is on the machine aprciable as it works perfectly, forgetting the competitors, I am not here to dgueuler deu but if I had you make a comparison, I cry without problem on 25 pages of shit that exists in the trade.

However, difficult to judge the report qualitprix, it is cheaper than the competitor and more reliable but it is always difficult to give a price software, the interface in any case is robust, well assembled, and as I allowed myself to disassemble (I'm curious I confess), I comfirm that the internal manufacturing quality is exemplary and worthy of Rane.

Systm This is a little fawn future retro, technology control by the old school techniques of vinyl remains the queens with the benefits of a fully transparent numrique who forget to leave s Premire minutes of use.
So 100% pure happiness, trs Systm is reliable and technical support bttn.
CD players flat scratch function is certainly not bad, but it is not the same and for an exorbitant price. Here you have a touch and manip 100% identical to the vinyl just rip CDs to the hard drive.

Spread the word!
