Rane Sixty Eight pro dj Club mixer SERATO DJ

Rane Sixty Eight pro dj Club mixer SERATO DJ

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. 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. Four Serato Control Vinyl Records and four Serato Control CDs are included.

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.

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 1.6 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.
