Rane Serato Scratch LIVE SL-1 Reviews
I am blown away with the simplicity and usability of Serato. After some initial trouble calibrating it to my setup (due to my dodgy needles and cables which were long overdue to be replaced) I was up and running in no time. Once I had swapped to new needles and cables, it didn\'t take more that 5 minutes before I had got my head round the basics and was ready to start mixing.
I love the fact that it is fully integrated with my Itunes library and imported all my playlists. It would be handy if Serato could pre analyze bpms of tracks in your library / crates but it\'s not a big issue as I found some freeware that analyzes bpms for everything in Itunes and then pulls the info through.
There is no noticeable difference in mixing with Serato and using traditional vinyl, as there is no latency, scratching is just the same too.
I haven\'t had a chance to play around with cue points and loops but from what i have seen so far I\'m very impressed. Gone are the days of spending Â£6 - Â£8 on records, Serato is the way forward!
(Sorry for such a long review but I love the product soo much!!) I am an emerging DJ and was looking for the best alternative to buying hundreds of vinyls or cds to DJ with. So after researching the product and then saving up £370!! (Don't worry it's worth it)
I ordered it. After attaching it up to my turntables and mixer and installing the software, I started using it with my PC. It was amazing. I was just like using regualr vinyls. Unfortunatley I cannot say how it performs with CDS but judging on how it performed with vinyls, I would say excellent as well! I use Serato for both mixing and scratching and there is never any latency. OK i can't help the needle skipping once in a while but that's unavoidable with vinyls. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a DJ alternative to hundreds of vinyls or CDs. My parents even use it to convert their old vinyls to mp3 format so it's a bonus there. BE AWARE THOUGH: buying this might make you become the best laptop DJ in the world!
Everytime i use Scratch Live i feel like a superstar dj, its tight control is one of the best i`ve seen. Following the instructions you can be setup within minutes. Clear guides, tons of support, arrived well packaged, what more can you want.
The only downfall i can see so far is Rane is not able to support vista 64bit users (yet).
get it even if you have to sell your most valuable posession, it is worth it. i mean it is almost exactly like having records. you'll be so happy with this product...thank you Rane/Serato.
