"upgraded"

Serato Scratch LivePublié le 04/12/12 à 21:17
The Rane Serato Scratch Live is no longer being made, its actually been replace with its upgraded version the Rane SL 2. But for those of us who have used or have the SL 1 we know they they still provide support for it even though its no longer being manufactured. It actually still gets updated pretty frequently if you are subscribed to the mailing list.


GETTING STARTED

Serato scratch Live is really easy to understand just start it up and get going. Getting started was a breeze and I think I may have only had 1 crash or freeze up with it and that was because I was using it on a very old dell laptop that just couldn’t handle it. But when I use it on my other laptop it works great, it......

Getting started was a breeze and I think I may have only had 1 crash or freeze up with it and that was because I was using it on a very old dell laptop that just couldn’t handle it. But when I use it on my other laptop it works great, it worked great on my dell laptop great just that one time wasn’t so good.


SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The manual to this device is one of the easiest manuals ever, I only opened it just to look around at the features when I first got it and the manual really seemed to be watered down. But its not watered down its just that easy to understand.


OVERALL OPINION

Overall, it’s a great program , and even though its no longer being made you can get the upgraded version which has more features its called the Rane SL2. You will love these product and it will keep your creative juices flowing. So load up those mp3’s that you love and listen to each day and start scratching and mixing them up. This program can do it all, the Ran Serato is a must buy item to have in your arsenal especially if you are just getting started you wont find an easier program to get cracking with. I highly recommend this or at least the upgraded version since this one is no longer being made.

I use the Serato for house mixing with a Technics mk2 turntable and a Rodec mixer

You can mix with CDs or vinyl and the files on your computer

So you'll save a lot of money on CDs and vinyls.

GETTING STARTED

Quick software installation

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I bought it new on ebay.

There are more and more DJs using this program in night clubs and there's a good reason for that.

OVERALL OPINION

I give it 9/10 because perfection doesn't exist, and because the price is a bit too high....

The features are great-I love them.Especially being able to instantly make a double of the file being played.Just click and drag to the opposite virtual turntable and you have doubles. Another feature that I think is very dope-but I haven't used yet-is being able to hook up a microphone to the interface,record your vocals into SSL, save them and then instantly be able to scratch and cut them....ALL ON THE FLY!!! The only thing I wish Rane would have added is a feature to allow you to record and convert to mp3 your vinyl collection all in SSL. Stanton Final Scratch has this feature I believe. That's why I give a 9 in the features department.

$550

GETTING STARTED

Basically plug and play. Of course you have to install the software and allow your computer to detect the new hardware-the interface-but after that it's instant plug and play every time. Very simple.The instructions in the user's manual are very clear and easy to understand and they provide you with schematics to show you how to connect everything. I also recommend running this software with nothing less than a P4 or Powerbook. I currently use a Toshiba Satellite A65 notebook with a Pentium 4 processor and an 80 gig hard drive.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Basically the only part that is liable to be damaged is the interface. But no problems with that. And I play out just about every weekend at different clubs,parties and a radio station. So it gets moved around alot. Plus I use it in my studio alot. I have had just ONE incident where the software froze up on me. But I think it was my processor freaking out over the buffering rate I was using.I simply closed SSL and then opened it back up. No more problems.

The sound quality depends on how good the sound from your mp3 files are. If you have bad files then you will have bad sound quality. Making sure you have quality sounding mp3 files is key to the overall sonic quality.Other than the occasional bad mp3 file the sound quality is GREAT!

OVERALL OPINION

I LOOOOOOOOOOVE IT!!!!!!! One of my best purchases ever. Because of SSL I can keep up with new music so much better and faster.I can play and promote local artists who would have never been able to press their music to vinyl and I can scratch and blend my own tracks. But most importantly it cuts down on the amount of vinyl I have to lug around with me and it still allows me to use my turntables in the digital realm.
