This system includes Serato DJ software and is compatible with Scratch Live. Rane’s Core Audio and ASIO drivers connect to most 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 continuous audio signal and easy transfer when unplugging USB between DJs.

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 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. You can also use the included Core Audio and ASIO drivers to run any other popular DJ and DAW software program you like.
Rane’s ultra low latency, multi-client ASIO and Core Audio drivers set the standard for USB streaming devices, working with all the major DJ and DAW software programs.

Ultra low latency core audio and asio drivers
Rane ASIO (PC) and Core Audio (Mac) drivers allow use with multiple third-party software applications supporting 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 and Core Audio drivers. These 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. These drivers are fast and reliable, designed for professionals with demanding needs.

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.

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. 24-bit audio processing delivers exceptional sound.

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

The SL3 accepts turntable outputs or CD line input levels with individual rear panel switches. The studio-grade phono preamp RIAA equalization in the SL3 is extremely accurate, for the best sound from your vinyl. The SL3 accepts 3Vrms inputs from CD decks without clipping, and outputs 3Vrms to the mixer without clipping. Other interfaces can’t handle this much signal.

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.

SL3: Deck Thrus

Playing Regular Vinyl and CDs
The SL3 must be powered by USB or the included external power supply for the Analog Deck Thrus to work, which are turned on and off in the driver Control Panel.
If external power is not connected, the SL3 draws its power from the USB port. Plugging in an external supply removes the power drain from the USB port. Power switching is automatic, and the SL3 continues to operate uninterrupted as long as a power source is available.
To remove the laptop and keep a set going with regular vinyl or CD:
Plug in the included external power supply and the yellow POWER indicator lights on the SL3.
Activate the Analog Output for the Deck you want to hear in the control panel.
Unplug the USB cable from the computer, and your turntable and mixer continue to play.

Galvanic isolation separates computer noise from audio
Units without galvanic isolation are susceptible to noise from connected computers. Galvanic Isolation guarantees audio from your mixer and decks is actively isolated from USB and power sources, eliminating ground loops and computer noise. Connect your device in any environment with confidence that it will be noise-free.

Virtual DJ
Native Support
This DJ product has Virtual DJ native support, with most software controls MIDI-mapped to Rane Mixer controls. Pre-defined audio configurations are included for the Rane SL2, SL3, and SL4. Tap into the full powers of your Rane Mixer with audio, video, and DVS timecode plug & play in Virtual DJ 8
