About This Product
Rane Sixty-Eight Multi-Channel Performance Mixer including Serato
Two computers, two USB ports, four decks and a range of effects.
The Sixty-Eight is the ultimate plug-and-play package supporting four-deck digital vinyl simulation, software controls, two USB ports for easy DJ transitions and colloboration, software effects, six built in beat effects, and all the record and playback channels you need. The Sixty-Eight Mixer supports both analog and Digital Vinyl Simulation (DVS) playback. The mixer is bundled with Serato Scratch Live and includes ASIO and Core Audio drivers for use with other audio programs.
Armed with eight selectable inputs, studio-grade phono preamps, USB and S/PDIF inputs, the Sixty-Eight allows a blend of analog and digital audio sources like never before. It features easy internal digital effects with on-beat effect switching, external analog inserts for hardware effects, and USB insert support for software effects.
Internal 22-Channel Sound Card
Why so many channels? The Sixty-Eight is able to simultaneously support control-signal pickup and playback for four DVS Decks, provide USB send and return for software effects insert and record the main mix, all at the same time.
Software controls for Library, Loops, and CUEs
Take advantage of the Sixty-Eight's tight integration with Serato Scratch Live and control the software from dedicated, MIDI mappable controls right on the mixer.
• Quickly browse your library and crates to load tracks.
• Create, modify and trigger your loops either automatically or manually.
• Set and trigger your cue points on the fly.
Dual USB ports for simple DJ change over
The Sixty-Eight allows two computers running Scratch Live to connect to the mixer simultaneously. This allows two DJs to play at the same time and easy DJ handover. Connect both computers to the two USB ports on the Sixty-Eight. On each computer, select a USB Source for each Virtual Deck.
3-band isolator EQs plus High-pass/Low-pass filter for each program channel
Each program channel on the Sixty-Eight 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.
FlexFx Loop with six internal effects, analog loop and USB Insert
The Rane FlexFx Loop on the Sixty-Eight is the ultimate solution for flexible control of your audio effects. The FlexFx Loop is an auxiliary bus dedicated to combining any combination of programs and mics and applying internal, external and software effects. This means you can quickly and easily add and remove audio, apply any of the six built-in, beat synchronized effects, add any external effects processors, and use the software effects of your choosing—all at the same time!
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. These drivers are fast and reliable, and are designed for professionals with demanding needs.
Rane ASIO and Core Audio drivers allow use with multiple third-party software applications that support 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 (Windows) and Core Audio (Mac) drivers. The included Rane 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.
