yves.philip.3's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" super trendy"

Rane Serato SL 2
with the disappearance of the vinyl record in 2009; we see nearly as hard timecoded vinyls are in large quantity, I want to buy me because I dream mix of trance goa with turntables, the sound reception level, the sound is very good quality, it will appeal to the public if I use scratch live disco or a festival

with a new Pioneer mixer with two channels and two effects

passionellement in'd like to make a trade

Toshiba laptop mac laptop or MacBook pro 15 apple


stable PC and Mac OSX

Serato Scratch Live and Ableton 9

I'm not recording

the update is free

no particular anomaly latency


it's a bit painful on PC because you have to connect at the same time that it installs on mac driver is included

easy but possible to put in French


it is only in English


3 years intensive use

The feature I like least on the mac to recognize it behind the bridge ableton and scratch live

€ 400 with timecoded records and CDs and audio interface
audio interface only 300 €, it holds up

all girls wishing to leave the escort agency

vmax59's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not cheaper but it works!"

Rane Serato SL 2
Allows mixing with encoded vinyl or cd encoded audio stored on your pc. Supplied with free software, "scratch live" and totally sufficient but usability "tracktor" also if need additional functions (loops, effects, etc ...)
Used almost solely on Pioneer DJM800 with two technics MkII on pc and mac. No notable bug report or in pc or mac.
Simply effective and relatively simple to use for an experienced dj, advise even though I know that other products do the job for less, do not have personally tested over time, I do know that encourage you to choose the SL2


yes, scratch live, 2 tracks, never updated, no need to define latency according config used and performance but quite configurable, low latency performance if config (dual core 2GB - 4mb RAM)


in my case, RAS


used for 3 years only model of its kind owned but am separated for passing on rekordbox with CDJs

Ray-Me's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Almost perfect"

Rane Serato SL 2
What characteristics have motivated your choice?

I've always been on since the beginning of SERATO software, so the SL1 I went to 2 course to improve my system. already better audio quality on paper and smaller. also the possibility of not having to put an RCA to RCA for line & phono.


On the soft part, there is a big change in recent times, was abandoned more ScratchLive no update will happen, but still downloadable on the website, as well as support for 1 year.
He will be replaced by SeratoDJ takes him support the DVS and controllers.
SSL is the most stable software I know, When to SeratoDJ many people have concerns with stability seratoDJ, personally I have none.


Yet no incompatibility, nothing to say on this side.


to summarize, it's almost 10 years that I use SERATO and I have always been satisfied, superb sound card, and the app is still good.

Minor drawbacks, however:

__ In order to register you need a SL3 or SL4, controller, or when external recording. By connecting the booth output / rec mixer to the computer or other recording system.

__Pour Improvement, integrated mixer would be welcome, so get what you can assign a MIDI controller for controlling, gender Xone K2. It would make a great trip Setup (in the manner of Z1 in native instrument)

Suddenly because of these 2 points improvement is 8/10.
