Rane Corporation and Serato Audio Research are pleased to announce the release of Scratch LIVE, the ultimate software and hardware solution for bridging the analog world of vinyl and the digital world of computer audio files. Scratch LIVE represents their first collaborative effort, pairing the groundbreaking software of Serato with Rane's innovative, professional quality DJ equipment.
The Scratch LIVE interface connects almost any computer to an ordinary pair of turntables or CD players, and the software faithfully tracks every subtle movement of the stylus on the included control records. The same movement is then instantly applied to any digital audio file in the user's collection producing a sound and feel that is indistinguishable from vinyl.
Manufactured and distributed by Rane, the Scratch LIVE package includes an extremely rugged, portable, high quality, bus-powered USB audio device, featuring two software switchable stereo phono or line inputs, a microphone input, two line outputs and pass thrus for all inputs.
Running natively on Windows XP and Mac OS X, the software has all the features of a modern DJ player, including beat extraction, real time tempo metering, waveform coloring based on spectral content, multiple cue points per track, and full iTunes library integration. Tailored for performance work, tracks are rapidly located via full text search of ID3 tags, or even recorded directly from a microphone, and assigned to turntable control with a single key press.
