A full complement of premium faders, knobs, buttons and our new Strip Search (patent pending) virtual-needle-drop control integrates seamlessly with the included Serato ITCH software. NS7 delivers hands-on control of every aspect of Serato ITCH and sends data to the software more than ten times faster than standard MIDI resolution, resulting in a rock-solid hardware/software DJ system that works with Mac or PC and feels as good as it looks.
It could be possible go a bit further improving the recording cappabilities of mixtape. Adding turntable vector recording (check the scratch track automation recording) or if you prefer doing it with SSL, split the turntable output and recording the serato vinyl directly alongside SSL audio from deck. Routing it properly gives you the chance of editing even scratching mistakes. Not clever solution due to lack of imagination in most DVS developers and the mantram about realdjing everytime a feature makes things easier. It could be true multritrack and gesture recording.
SSL with the SL2 since the biginning when it was released think 2006 or 2007: 2 Times problems that where related to a broken USB Cable(doing around 15 gigs a year). Tested Serato DJ (same Laptop with 2 times CDJ 2000 as controller and the same Interface so in total same hardware and same OSX Version): In 1 Year more problems with crashes, dropouts strange things that i could not really explain or reproduce then all the years before. Also Serato DJ Looks simpy ugly compared to SSL (but that is not a mainreason). They wanted to support tons of hardware and make it availible for everybody that is not willing to pay for quality. The price is a more unstable system that i as a professional DJ who must make a living from that job can not accept. So i still use SSL because i can count on that system and i payed a lot for it. I know that i could try to tweak my system and test around, work with the support and read bugreports/crashreports but thats not what i want and what i payed for. I could buy a new laptop but sorry if a 2011 macbook thats only used for djing does not work than they made some misstakes in the development. SSL was for nearly every user: Install and have fun it simply works, thats why you payed 700 Euro. SDJ is install it, works for most users but if not its hard to findout why. Thats why you maybe only payed 300.
I have a major problem with getting my Serato SL1 box to work with Serato DJ. i have a new solid state hard drive and i lost all of my files. I dont have the original SL1 driver, and cannot find it, ive looked everywhere. What do i need to my sl1 serato scratch live box is not working with the serato dj. thanks djs
I have a laptop running win 8.1 and i considering buying an SL1 and using it with scratch live. Why because i am only doing this as a hobby (not making money or leaving my basement) and i want the cheapest way to a functional serato system. Is this crazy talk in mid 2018
Time goes on, technology changes, and sometimes the hardware cannot keep up with the advancements of technology. The Rane SL1 and TTM 57SL being discontinued and moved to Legacy product disappointed the whole market. Some DJs speculated it was a ploy to force them into spending more money on a new product because after all this gear still worked like a charm! In reality, they were USB1 technology, and the ins and outs as well the new capabilities of the improved Serato DJ Software would not be something that could be delivered through that port. 1e1e36bf2d
