Important Firmware Update Information For Use With Serato DJ

The Sixty-Two, Sixty-Four, Sixty-Eight, and the SL3 require a firmware update to be compatible with Serato DJ 1.6.0 and newer.

  • Caution to Rane Sixty-Two users: Due to backwards compatibility issues, the 2.14 firmware version is not to be used with Scratch Live (see below for details).

 

1. Install Serato DJ.

2. Open Serato DJ.

3. Connect your Rane device with a USB cable to the computer.

4. If the device does not connect, look for the Install Driver button in the right-hand panel. Click it. This launches the Rane driver installer. Follow the install directions. A reboot will be required.
