Rane SixtyOne 61 Performance DJ Mixer For Serato Scratch Live
Rane and Serato are proud to be supporting partners in turntablism with the Rane Sixty-One Mixer. For more than a decade, artists have chosen innovative Rane instruments to advance their art.
The Sixty-One is a plug-and-play package supporting two-deck digital vinyl simulation, software effects and all the record and playback channels you need. The Sixty-One Mixer supports both analog and Digital Vinyl Simulation (DVS) playback. Serato DJ software and manual are included, and the mixer is also compatible with Serato Scratch Live. It includes Rane’s ASIO and Core Audio drivers for use with other popular DJ and DAW programs. Two Serato Control Vinyl Records and two Serato Control CDs are included.
A typical setup includes operation with two Serato Noisemap DVS channels, SP-6 sample player on an independent USB Aux playback channel and Software effects enabled on the USB digital insert in the FlexFx loop. This setup also allows recording Deck 1 post-fader, Deck 2 post-fader and the Main mix.
Internal 20-Channel Sound Card
Why so many channels? The Sixty-One is able to simultaneously support control-signal pickup and playback for two DVS Decks, provide independent playback for the SP6 sample-player, record both program channels post fader, provide USB send and return for software effects insert and record the main mix, all at the same time.
Independent USB Playback Channels for SP6 Sample Player
The dedicated SP6 sample player playback channel allows you to independently control the mix level, Cue and effects assignment of the SP6 sample player from the mixer. This is a significant improvement over simply summing with Deck playback.
Magnetic Crossfader and Channel Faders
The proprietary Rane magnetic faders are fast, accurate, and long lasting.
The design uses non-contact technology previously reserved for demanding aerospace and industrial applications. No travel noise—no bleed—ever.
Rane’s magnetic faders accurately translate hand motion into precise audio level control. Non-contact fader technology is the only way to fully address the needs of the professional performance DJ.
Both channel faders and the crossfader are magnetic. These faders are easy to clean, and with proper maintenance, should last the life of the mixer. Should one become damaged, you can easily replace it. All three faders are interchangeable.
3-band Isolator EQs plus High-Pass/Low-Pass Filter for each program channel
Each program channel on the Sixty-One has its own dedicated 3-band isolator EQs and dedicated High-Pass/Low-Pass filters. These controls let you take full control of your mix to accurately and precisely cut or boost any component of your track. Use the full cut EQs to tune it just the way you want it, or use the High-Pass/Low-Pass filter knob to quickly cut and boost with one turn. The filter allows you to blend, mix or add a unique effect to your track.
Four Phono/CD Inputs plus mic, session I/o, and main out
Both source types are commonly used for analog playback and DVS control. Two Phono/CD inputs per Deck allow selecting between combinations of four phono/CD inputs sources using the input selector on each channel.
Session I/O supports chaining mixer together or adding an additional input with an output available for an additional zone.
Balanced high-output Main out and excellent turn on/off muting for all outputs allows you to plug into a club system, turn on and play high-quality audio without worrying about pops clicks, ground loop or noise.
FlexFx loop with both external analog and digital USB inserts, and wet/dry mix control
The Rane FlexFx Loop on the Sixty-One mixer is the ultimate solution for flexible control of your audio effects. The FlexFx Loop is an auxiliary bus dedicated to combining any number of programs and mic and applying external and software effects. This means you can quickly and easily add and remove audio to the FlexFx loop, apply external effects processors and software effects, and then blend it with the main mix with an easy access Wet/Dry slider.
The USB Insert allows you to use the wide variety of effects available in software in your post-fader mix on the mixer. Many beat affects must be post-fader to work correctly and simply applying an effect to a deck in software doesn’t get you there.
Ultra low latency core audio and asio drivers
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.
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.
Includes Serato DJ software
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.
