Features & Specs


Rane Sixty Eight Scratch Live 2.0 Features:

Support for two DJs at once
Control of Scratch Live from the hardware control strips
Record your separate PGM inputs, FlexFX USB Send, Aux Inputs or Main Mix: all possible record sources
SP-6 Sample player output assign to mixer channels
Control and insertion of Software FX using the FlexFX USB Insert
Record your mix to disk with pre-fader audio and fader automation recorded

DJ handover is easy with two USB ports. Easily switch between two laptops without interrupting the music. e.g., DJ A can be playing out channels 1 and 2, and then hand off those channels one at a time to DJ B.

Two DJs can perform in parallel on the same mixer: Two DJs connect, configure which channels they output in software, and then DJ side by-side off the same mixer. eg., DJ A can play out channels 1 and 2, and DJ B can play out channels 3 and 4 at the same time. A plug-and-play preset is included which performs standard functions (Library Navigation, Cues, Loops). Plus Customizable presets for advanced users who will be able to switch groups, so the control strips become open-assignable like a MIDI controller, allowing custom functions and mapping.

Additional output options are added to the SP-6 Sample Player, allowing a user to choose channels 1-4 or the FlexFX Return as the output. This allows three decks coming out of channels 1-3 and having the SP-6 coming out of channel 4.

Users can record not only audio, but fader automation. This can then be imported into a DAW for editing.

Minimum System Requirements for Serato Scratch Live

Mac

1 GHz G4
1 GB RAM
1024 x 768 minimum screen resolution
OSX 10.3.9 or higher
Intel Macs require Scratch Live version 1.5 or higher

Windows

Pentium 4 / 1.5 GHz (Intel processor)
1 GB RAM
1024 x 768 minimum screen resolution
Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or higher
Windows Vista requires Versions 1.7.2 or higher
Windows Vista 64-bit requires Versions 1.8.2 or higher
Note that we recommend Windows XP over Vista for performance reasons. By using XP, you can have a lower latency (for a better vinyl feel) and better performance in general.

Please note: this is the minimum requirement to run Scratch Live. We recommend you use a higher spec computer, and particularly if you have a large library, you will benefit from having more RAM.
