Serato Scratch Live

Successfully crossing the divide between the versatility of digital audio and the tactile control of vinyl turntablism, Scratch Live is the industry's dominant digital DJ'ing tool.

Scratch Live is a DVS (Digital Vinyl System) application created by New Zealand based Serato Audio Research and distributed by and licensed exclusively to Rane Corporation (USA). Scratch Live allows manipulation and playback of digital audio files using traditional vinyl turntables or CD players via special NoiseMap™ vinyl records or CDs.

Easily import your playlists and iTunes library. Drag and drop from Explorer (Windows) or the Finder (Mac) into the Scratch Live library. Use crates and subcrates to 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.

DJing Tools: Cueing, Looping, and Key Lock

Use Cue Points in Scratch Live to mark and trigger different parts of your tracks. The cue point markers are saved with the file in the track’s ID3 tag, so they will be present each time you load the track, saving you time during your set to better rock the crowd.

With Manual Loops, Auto-loops, and Loop Roll, you never have to worry about running out of track time again. You can also loop-up your favorite tracks to create unique mixes and blends.

Make sure your songs stay in the original key while sped-up or slowed down by using Scratch Live’s Key Lock feature. 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.

Play your drop samples in the SP-6

The SP-6 Sample Player allows you to play up to six audio clips, sample or tracks, in addition to the songs playing on the Virtual Decks. Any audio file in your Scratch Live library can be loaded to any one of the six slots, allowing playback of short samples, sound effects, or full length tracks. Step up your game by playing air horns, sirens, and other popular samples without using one of your virtual decks!

Tweak your audio with the DJ-FX Plug-in

The DJ-FX Plug-in gives you control of two FX units, each with three chained effects slots per unit. Each FX unit has two control modes: Ultra Knob Mode and Super Knob Mode, both of which can be fully customized.

Using Super Knob Mode, click the Effects drop down box to select an effect, like Delay, Echo or Reverb for the effect slot. Click the ON button by the Super Knobs to toggle turning the effect(s) on and off to create amazing buildups and epic breakdowns. 

In Ultra and Super Knob Mode, you can link or unlink a parameter to the Super Knob by pressing the Link Button, allowing one master control of some parameters and individual control of others to build custom effects of your own creation.

 

Go modular with MIDI controllers

The MIDI Control feature in Scratch Live provides the ability to map MIDI controls to Scratch Live controls, and thus control the functions of Scratch Live using MIDI controllers such as keyboards, triggers, sliders, and knobs. Integrating MIDI controllers into your Scratch Live setup can improve live performance usability, such as hitting pads on a MIDI controller to trigger loops and cue points.
