Calibration is equally important for both vinyl

Troubleshooting
and Frequently
Asked Questions
Select phono as the audio input level in the
setup screen if you are using vinyl. Check
your needles and make sure they are clean. If
the circles look fuzzy, try cleaning your control
record. If the Scope View shows a line instead
of a circle, Scratch Live is only receiving a signal
from one channel — check all your cables, and
the connection between your cartridges and the
tone arm. You can order replacement control
records from your local distributor. If you are in
the USA, you may order these online from the

Scratch Live interprets the signal coming out of
the CD player, and uses this information to control
the play back of the files on your computer. Any
audio processing performed on the signal before
it reaches the hardware interface, such as key
correction, will scramble the signal making it
illegible to Scratch Live. Key lock is available in

Corrupt File
Descriptions and
Diagnoses
Corrupt file: This MP3 contains invalid
frames.
This MP3 contains frames which do not conform strictly to the official MP3 specification. Scratch Live
can not be certain that this file will play back 100% accurately.
Corrupt file: This file contains corrupt
frames that may result in audible glitches.
This file contains two or more contiguous corrupt frames. Since corrupt frames are replaced with
silence, this could result in what might sound like an audio glitch.
Corrupt file: This file has been split. You
should check the beginning for audio
glitches.
The first MPEG audio frame in this file refers to audio that should be present before it but is not. This
is usually the result of incorrect MP3 editing. Since a corrupt frame is replaced with silence and most
songs start with silence, the resulting silence might not be noticeable. All the same, listen to the
beginning of the song, just to be sure.
Corrupt file: This MP3 contains frames
with corrupt data.
Decoding of an MPEG audio frame failed. This means that the frame contained invalid data. As usual
with corrupt frames, this frame will be played as silence.
Corrupt file: This MP3 lost syncronization
between the frame index and the frames.
Scratch Live is reading an old overview of an MP3 that has been edited in a 3rd party editing
program. Re-building the overviews for the affected files usually corrects this error.
Corrupt file: This MP3 is completely invalid
and is not playable.
Self explanatory. Possible causes are disk bad sectors, file system corruption, wrong file types, wrong
file extensions, etc
Corrupt file: This file contains invalid audio
data.
Scratch Live encountered a lot of invalid data while looking for audio in this file. This message alerts
you to the fact that the file you're trying to play contains corrupt data. This may, or may not, affect
playback.
Corrupt file: This MP3 contains no valid
frames.
No audio could be found in this file, which means it is completely unplayable as far as Scratch Live is
concerned. Please make sure this really is an audio file.
Unsupported file: This MP3 contains multiple layers.
While scanning, Scratch Live found frames belonging to multiple MPEG layers. Scratch Live does not
support MP3s that contain frames from multiple layers – some frames may be output as silence.
Unsupported file: This file is more than
2GB in size.
Self explanatory. At the moment, Scratch Live does not support files that are 2GB in size (or larger).
Unsupported file: This file has data blocks
greater than 2GB in size.
This file contains chunks of data that are larger than 2GB. Scratch Live does not support files that are
more than 2GB in size.
Corrupt file: This WAV contains no valid
chunks.
This WAV file contains no recognizable WAV data. It is quite possible that this might not be a WAV file.
Unsupported file: This file's data is not in
PCM format.
WAV files can contain data in several formats. Scratch Live only supports WAV files that contain data
in the PCM format.
Unsupported file: This file has a sampling
rate greater than 96 kHz.
Scratch Live does not support sampling rates greater than 96 kHz. If you see this message, the
simplest approach is to re-sample the audio at 96 kHz and re-save the file.
Unsupported file: This file uses more than
24 bits per sample
Scratch Live supports a maximum of 24 bits per sample of audio data.
Corrupt file: This WAV is incomplete.
Scratch Live expected more data in the file, but found none. This could be because the file was
incorrectly truncated or because the data in the file is corrupt, causing Scratch Live to incorrectly
estimate the amount of data present in the file.
Corrupt file: This file contains corrupt
blocks.
This file contains blocks of data that report their size to be zero. This message was inserted to identify
files that might cause lockups on previous versions of Scratch Live.
Corrupt file: This song contains no audio
data.
Scratch Live could not find any audio in this file. Please check to make sure this file contains audio in
a format that Scratch Live supports.
Corrupt file: This song contains invalid
samples.
This file contains samples of audio that are too small to represent accurately and will therefore
be truncated to zero. This should not result in any audible audio artifacts, but could cause audio
dropouts on earlier versions of Scratch Live.

Scope Reading and Fixes
Most of the problems that occur with Scratch Live can be attributed to it not getting a good reading of the control signal from your records or CDs. These examples show what the scopes on the
setup screen can look like to help solve possible problems. Some problems cause similar looking scopes, e.g., if your scopes look like the Dusty Needle one, the cause could be a damaged needle.

Magnetic Fader
Q and A
Q. Will I damage the faders if I spray
them with bad stuff or spill bad
things in them?
A. No. The faders in the TTM 57SL are designed
with materials highly resistant to corrosion and
most chemicals. There are no electrical contacts
to clean or damage. While bad things may
change the feel of the faders, bad things will
not affect the sound. To clean faders that have
had a bad thing put in them, follow the simple
instructions to the right.
Magnetic Fader
Maintenance
There are no electrical contacts to clean!
The faders in the TTM 57SL are designed with
materials highly resistant to corrosion and most
chemicals. While the faders will handle millions
of operations, they may become dirty over
time. Bad things may be spilled or sprayed into
the faders. In either case, the faders are not
damaged and the sound quality is unaffected.
Cleaning is only required to maintain the feel of
the faders.
The faders are self-lubricating and with normal
use, should not require additional lubrication. If

in products with removed or defaced serial numbers, or 5) in components or parts or products expressly warranted by another manufacturer. Rane agrees
to supply all parts and labor to repair or replace defects covered by this limited warranty with parts or products of original or improved design, at its option
in each respect, if the defective product is shipped prior to the end of the warranty period to the Rane Factory in the original packaging or a replacement
supplied by Rane, with all transportation costs and full insurance paid each way by the purchaser or owner.
LIMITED WARRANTY OUTSIDE THE U.S.A.
RANE PRODUCTS ARE WARRANTED ONLY IN THE COUNTRY WHERE PURCHASED, THROUGH THE AUTHORIZED RANE DISTRIBUTOR IN THAT
COUNTRY, AGAINST DEFECTS IN MATERIAL OR WORKMANSHIP, THE SPECIFIC PERIOD OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SHALL BE THAT WHICH IS
DESCRIBED TO THE ORIGINAL RETAIL PURCHASER BY THE AUTHORIZED RANE DEALER OR DISTRIBUTOR AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE. Rane
Corporation does not, however, warrant its products against any and all defects: 1) arising out of materials or workmanship not provided or furnished by
Rane, or 2) resulting from abnormal use of the product or use in violation of instructions, or 3) in products repaired or serviced by other than authorized
Rane repair facilities, or 4) in products with removed or defaced serial numbers, or 5) in components or parts or products expressly warranted by another
manufacturer. Rane agrees, through the applicable authorized distributor, to repair or replace defects covered by this limited warranty with parts or

Warranty Procedure - Valid in U.S.A. only
NOTICE! You must complete and return the warranty card or register your product online to extend
the Warranty from 2 years to 3 years!
TO VALIDATE YOUR EXTENDED WARRANTY: Use the postcard that came in the box with your unit, or go to www.rane.com and click on New Product
Registration. Fill out the warranty completely, being sure to include the model and serial number of the unit since this is how warranties are tracked.
If your Rane product was purchased in the U.S.A., mail the completed card or register online with to Rane Corporation within 10 days from the date of
purchase. If you purchased the product outside the U.S.A. you must file your warranty registration with the Rane Distributor in that country. It is
advised that you keep your bill of sale as proof of purchase, should any difficulties arise concerning the registration of the warranty card. NOTICE: IT IS
NOT NECESSARY TO REGISTER IN ORDER TO RECEIVE RANE CORPORATION’S STANDARD TWO YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY.
WARRANTY REGISTRATION is made and tracked by MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBERS ONLY, not by the purchaser’s or owner’s name. Therefore any
warranty correspondence or inquires MUST include the model and serial number of the product in question. Be sure to fill in the model and serial number
in the space provided below and keep this in a safe place for future reference.
WARRANTY SERVICE MUST BE PERFORMED ONLY BY AN AUTHORIZED RANE SERVICE FACILITY LOCATED IN THE COUNTRY WHERE THE UNIT
WAS PURCHASED, OR (if product was purchased in the U.S.) AT THE RANE FACTORY IN THE U.S.. If the product is being sent to Rane for repair, please
call the factory for a Return Authorization number. We recommend advance notice be given to the repair facility to avoid possible needless shipment in
case the problem can be solved over the phone. UNAUTHORIZED SERVICE PERFORMED ON ANY RANE PRODUCT WILL VOID ITS EXISTING FACTORY
WARRANTY.
FACTORY SERVICE: If you wish your Rane product to be serviced at the factory, it must be shipped FULLY INSURED, IN THE ORIGINAL PACKING OR
EQUIVALENT. This warranty will NOT cover repairs on products damaged through improper packaging. If possible, avoid sending products through the
mail. Be sure to include in the package:
1. Complete return street shipping address (P.O. Box numbers are NOT acceptable).
2. A detailed description of any problems experienced, including the make and model numbers of any other system equipment.
3. Remote power supply, if applicable.
Repaired products purchased in the U.S. will be returned prepaid freight via the same method they were sent to Rane. Products purchased in the U.S., but
sent to the factory from outside the U.S. MUST include return freight funds, and the sender is fully responsible for all customs procedures, duties, tariffs
and deposits.
In order to qualify for Rane’s one year extended warranty (for a total of 3 years parts and labor),
the warranty must be completely filled out and sent to us immediately. Valid in USA only.
We recommend you write your serial number here in your owners manual
and on your sales receipt for your records.
