Turntablism is alive and more creative than ever. Rane and Serato are proud to be supporting partners in that creativity with the Rane Sixty-One and Sixty-Two Mixers for Serato Scratch Live. For more than a decade, artists have chosen innovative Rane instruments to advance their art and three generations of TTM series mixers have been the top pick for many of the world’s best performers. These mixers more tightly integrate performers, music, software, and hardware. The artist adds the passion, imagination and skills.
The Sixty-One is a plug-and-play package supporting two-deck digital vinyl simulation, software effects and all the record and playbackchannels you need. The Sixty-One 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 to use other audio programs.
A typical setup includes operation with two Scratch Live 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 PGM-1 post-fader, PGM-2 post-fader and the Main mix.
If you are looking for the same bullet-proof construction, pristine audio quality and integrated 20-channel sound card, but would like added hardware effects, a second USB port to share with another DJ and their laptop, dedicated controls for Library, Loops, Cues and the SP-6 sampler, consider the Rane Sixty-Two Mixer.

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 fader is 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.
Unlike optical non-contact faders, Rane's magnetic faders are impervious to smoke, moisture, temperature, ambient light and aging. (You know, only the stuff you run into at every club.)
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.
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. 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.
MIDI mapping is done for you as the Sixty-One is plug-and-play with Serato Scratch Live. Advanced users can custom map most
mixer controls to many other third-party audio programs. The MIDI control assignments are in the Sixty-One Manual.
ASIO & Core Audio Drivers
These included drivers allow the Sixty-One to act as a 8-in 12-out USB external sound card for use with multiple thirdparty software clients supporting Core Audio (Mac) or ASIO (Windows). The Sixty-One controls are MIDI-mappable with supporting software.
Mix and scratch files from your computer hard drive using Serato Control Vinyl, Serato Control CD or Official Serato Accessories.
Serato Control Vinyl and Control CD. The Serato Control Vinyl and Control CDs each contain the Serato NoiseMap™ Control Tone, a unique control signal which allows Scratch Live to track the motion of the record, simulating the same movement with digital audio.
Official Serato accessories (optional). Serato has certified a select range of new generation controllers with USB connectivity to Scratch Live. This means that Scratch Live can now send track information from the software to the supported hardware on-board displays. You can also use the platters, buttons and sliders instantly, as supported hardware has pre-mapped controls for a no-fuss setup. Check serato.com for the latest Serato Approved USB Controllers.
