Scratch LIVE from Rane consists of software, a hardware interface, two vinyl control records, two control CD and associated cabling to provide a software and hardware solution for bridging the analog world of vinyl and the digital world of computer audio files.

Using regular turntables or CD players, the DJ can scratch and mix files from a Mac or Windows XP computer's CD or hard drive, add in a live microphone input for scratching and even bypass to standard vinyl if required. Scratch LIVE is the complete digital solution for the vinyl junkie, allowing them to take their entire collection wherever they go, while leaving the precious vinyl at home.

The SL 1 interface connects one or two standard vinyl or CD turntables to the computer. This portable, high quality, bus-powered USB interface features two switchable phono or line inputs, a microphone input, two line outputs and pass thru outputs for the phono/line and microphone inputs.

The included 12" vinyl records each have Serato's unique control signal which allows Scratch LIVE to track the motion of the record, simulating the same movement with digital audio. Due to Serato's proprietary control scheme, the result is a feel and sound indistinguishable from playing vinyl. As a producer and DJ, a track finished today can be played as if on a real turntable, the same day, without ever having to cut a dubplate.
