HOW IT WORKS

Serato Scratch Live (SSL) works with your traditional dj setup (turntables or cd turntables plus a mixer). Using specially coded vinyl records / CDs, a custom interface box, and the SSL software, you can manipulate music files on your computer, just as if they were recorded onto the vinyl / cd. That means you can mix and scratch your digital files just like you would a record. In addition, there are many powerful digital features built into the software like iTunes synch, playlist functions, cue points, sampling, recording, and so much more.

SL1 vs SL2

  • lower price from SL1
  • improved sound quality (24-Bit Converters and 48kHz audio)
  • more compact interface design 
  • upgraded to USB 2.0 from 1.1
  • added internal phono preamps + grounding for turntables for mixer-less vinyl to digital transfers
  • ASIO / Core Audio drivers for 3rd-party support
  • eliminated mic input

SL2 vs SL3

  • The SL2 is Rane Serato's entry level model, but it still boasts nearly identical hardware specs (including identical sound quality) to the SL3 at a significant price discount. Furthermore, the SSL software is the most integral part of the Serato setup, and both models use the same software. However, for advanced users, the lack of the AUX input / output on the SL2 may be an issue:
  • SL3 allows for (3) input decks (2 decks, 1 AUX)
  • the AUX input on the SL3 lets you mix 3 simultaneous decks
  • the AUX input on the SL3 lets you record your sets in real time within Serato
  • the AUX output on the SL3 allows you to send the SP6 (Serato sample player) through its own output
  • the AUX output on the SL3 allows you to route The Bridge through its own output
  • in addition, the SL3 includes a power supply and interface carrying case
