Low-latency ASIO and Core Audio drivers allow you to use the SL 4 as a studio production tool with multiple third-party software applications. The SL 4 is masterfully crafted by Rane for the discerning DJ.
Serato software supports all these file formats: Fixed and Variable Bit
Rate MP3, AIFF, AAC, ALAC, WAV, OGG Vorbis, CD Audio and direct from the
mixer. Record from your mixer's Aux output and immediately scratch as
if it was on vinyl. Record direct from vinyl or CD and save as a 24-bit
48 kHz or 96 kHz stereo file.
Easily import your playlists and iTunes library. You can
drag from Explorer (Windows) or the Finder (Mac) into the Scratch Live
library. The crate and subcrate system helps organize your library and
sets. Hot-swap external drives with fast automatic library merging and
retention of crates. Browse your music collection by album, artist, BPM,
or genre, with optional album art display. Intuitive search function
can be applied to any field to find things quickly. Edit ID3 tags with
full Unicode support.
Preprocessing of MP3 files is not required except to
detect corrupt files or use the auto-BPM and auto-gain functions.
Auto-BPM detects tempo information for tracks without it, saving it with
each file. A tap tempo button allows you to enter your own. Auto-gain
lets you set a target gain on any or all songs in your library. You can
also manually adjust individual gain, remembered in each song file.
The Virtual Deck shows everything about the speed and
position of a track. As the vinyl rotates, so does the line on the
label. The circular progress bar around the edge is a visual
representation of the position within the song. The time and remaining
time are displayed in minutes and seconds. The turntable speed as a
percentage of pitch shift is on the left, and the pitched BPM is on the
Different operating modes can be assigned to each Virtual Deck:
Absolute Mode — exact reproduction of
record movement, needle drop through tracks – just like normal vinyl.
The beginning of the track is mapped to the start of the record.
Relative Mode —
skip-free scratching, jump to cue points, and pitch bend
buttons combined with turntable control. This mode observes the relative
forward and backward movement of the record, but does not regard the
position within the record.
Internal Mode —
mix with just your laptop using features modeled on DJ CD
players. Rewind, Bend down, Play / pause reverse, Play / pause forward,
Bend up, Fast forward.
Auto mode — play a sequence of tracks automatically.
With Key Lock on, the key or pitch of the song stays
locked at what it would be if the track was playing at normal speed,
regardless of the platter speed of the turntable or CD player. Key Lock
has scratch detection, so it automatically turns off when scratching for
a natural scratching sound.
Variable zoom waveforms centered around current position
display horizontally or vertically.
Waveforms are colored by frequency so you can distinguish
instruments visually. Full track overview lets you quickly find where
the beat drops, find breakdowns and choruses, and jump to any part of
the song. The tempo display assists with rapid tempo matching of tracks.
When the two tracks are matched to the same tempo, the peaks will line
up. Beat display emphasizes the transients in tracks -- these are
matched up when the two tracks are beat matched. Visual markers can be
set for up to 5 cue points per song and triggered from the keyboard.
Save up to 9 loops per track -- these loops are saved in the file, and
will be present when you reload. Censor expletives on the fly with an
instant quick-reverse and catch-up with no loss of timing or pitch.
