SL3 for Serato

The SL3 gives you the freedom to take your entire digital music collection on the road with advanced Serato features that add extra creativity to your DJing. This intuitive system replicates the traditional DJing experience for "real feel" usability. The Rane SL3 USB 2.0 interface connects one, two or three standard vinyl or CD turntables to your computer using a single USB cable with audio connections to line inputs on your DJ mixer of choice.

This system includes Serato DJ software and is compatible with Scratch Live. Rane's Core Audio and ASIO drivers connect to other popular DJ and DAW software. This package includes two 12˝ Serato Control Vinyl records, two Serato Control CDs, USB cable, and RCA audio cables to your mixer. An international power supply with country adaptors is included to insure optimum performance and easy transfer when unplugging USB between DJs. A soft zippered carrying case for the SL3 is also included.

  • Inputs for three turntables or CD decks, switchable in any combination.
  • High output improves ability to easily match levels of various source types.
  • Studio-grade phono preamps, and 48kHz 24-bit audio processing for superior sound quality.
  • Advanced, low latency ASIO and Core Audio Drivers for compatibility with third-party software.
  • Built-in galvanic isolation to eliminate computer noise and interference.
  • Compact and rugged hardware design.
  • Aux Input for session recording or LiveFeed.
  • Aux Output assignable to the SP-6 Sample Player.
  • High-grade Phono Preamps upgrade the performance of most mixers.
  • Software switchable Direct Thru Connections for regular deck playback.
  • Bus power from USB port or with the included external power supply.

Includes Serato DJ software

Rane is pleased to announce that our products which previously included Serato Scratch Live software are now fully supported by and include Serato DJ software. DJs currently using Serato Scratch Live with supported Rane hardware have the option to migrate to the new and improved Serato DJ free of charge. If you’re familiar with Scratch Live, the transition to Serato DJ is easy and intuitive. Serato DJ 1.6 is a free upgrade supporting the Sixty-One, Sixty-Two, Sixty-Eight, SL2, SL3, and SL4.

Serato DJ provides support for DVS (digital vinyl system), iZotope FX, Sync, Slip Mode, more Cue points, jump-to-loop, an improved 24-slot sampler and takes advantage of the high performance, ultra-low latency Rane ASIO and Core Audio drivers. Both programs share compatible song libraries, the same general workflow and deck layout.

Upgrading is optional -- Serato Scratch Live will still work with the Sixty-One, Sixty-Two, Sixty-Eight, SL2, SL3, and SL4. You can have both programs installed, and use one or the other.

Update! Serato DJ 1.6.1 has Windows 8 support.

Ultra low latency core audio and asio drivers

Rane’s ultra low latency, multi-client ASIO and Core Audio drivers set the standard for USB streaming devices. These drivers are fast and reliable, and are designed for professionals with demanding needs.

Rane ASIO and Core Audio drivers allow use with multiple third-party software applications that support Core Audio or ASIO. ASIO and Core Audio drivers are multi-client, meaning they allow multiple applications on a computer to share the device at the same time. When using a Rane product with Serato Scratch Live, proprietary Serato Audio Research drivers are used in place of Rane ASIO (Windows) and Core Audio (Mac) drivers. The included Rane drivers are used when Scratch Live is not running.

Take these industry standard drivers and unleash your Rane audio device on any professional software package of your choice.

Aux Inputs and Outputs

The auxiliary input provides a live input feed for creative sampling, recording your set or using a third vinyl turntable or CD deck. The auxiliary output delivers a third deck or the SP-6 sample player output to a dedicated input on your mixer. Studio-grade phono preamps and 24-bit audio processing deliver exceptional sound.

The included drivers allow the SL3 to act as a 6-in 6-out USB external sound card for use with third-party audio software supporting Core Audio (Mac) or ASIO (Windows).

Compatible with Serato Scratch Live software

Serato Scratch Live provides a tight and authentic digital vinyl system with its unique, non-time-based Serato Noisemap control signal.

  • Organize and browse your music collection
  • Load music files onto Virtual Decks for playback
  • Manage Cues, Loops and Samples
  • Add powerful DJ Effects

The Serato Video software plug-in for Scratch Live adds the ability to playback, mix and add effects to video files. Serato’s Bridge plug-in allows you to record your Serato DJ performances as Ableton Live Sets, and play Ableton Live Sets with your turntables or CDJs.

The latest version of Serato Scratch Live can be downloaded here from Serato.

Rugged and compact die-cast design

A rugged die-cast design ensures your SL device is road-worth and able to take a beating.

A Kensington Security slot allows your device to be locked-down with a security cable.

Galvanic isolation separates computer noise from audio
