All analog outputs come from the same
“Main Mix” signal. Main, Booth and
Session outputs each have their own
Level control. The Main output is on
balanced XLR jacks with pin 2 “hot” per
AES standards. The Booth output is on
balanced ¼" TRS (tip-ring-sleeve) jacks,
though unbalanced TS (tip-sleeve) plugs
may be used. The Session output is on
regular unbalanced RCA jacks. Because
all signals are identical, users may use any
of these outputs as the “main” output if a
different cable type is required for system
connection.
Rane recommends balanced wiring
for the strongest signal and rejection of
hum and noise. If your cable to the amp
rack is less than 10 feet (3 meters), you
can usually get away with an unbalanced
cable. See the RaneNote “Sound System
Interconnection” at rane.com for details
and cable wiring.

Power Supply
The Sixty-Eight features an internal
universal switching power supply that
operates on any AC mains 100 to 240
VAC, 50 or 60 Hz (most places in the
world). All that is required when traveling
is the appropriate IEC line cord which is
usually readily available. The universal
supply is a major plus for the traveling DJ.

path and turning it on. So, it’s important to
understand the different control functions.
The order of processing in the FlexFx
Bus is:
1. FlexFx assign for each PGM and Mic.
2. Internal Effects
3. Ext. Analog Insert
4. USB Insert
5. Cue
6. FlexFx On
7. FlexFx Mix Level control.
These are shown with signal flow in the
drawing below.
You can set and trigger cue points in
Scratch Live by using the Cue buttons on
the Sixty-Eight. Pressing a Cue button will
trigger the corresponding set cue point in
Scratch Live. If a corresponding cue does
not exist, pressing a cue button will set a
new cue point.
Delete
You can delete a set cue point in Scratch
Live by pressing and holding the Delete
button, then pressing the corresponding
Cue button.
FlexFx
1. The FlexFx buttons located in the PGM
and MIC channels assign signal to the
FlexFx Bus when on (blue), and to the
Main Mix when off. This allows multiple
inputs to the FlexFx Bus and allows
drumming different signals into and out
of an applied effect without interruption.
The FlexFx Bus in the Sixty-Eight works
differently than other basic effect insert
solutions. The FlexFx Bus is more like
an auxiliary bus that can have multiple
signals assigned to it. Those combined
signals can have internal effects,
external analog effects and external USB
effects applied in any combination. It is
possible to cue and control the level of
this auxiliary mix in the Main Mix. This
architecture is very flexible and not at all
like simply inserting an effect in a signal
2. The six effect buttons both turn
on and sync an internal effect. By
keeping this separate from the FlexFx
ON button, it is possible to turn on,
sync and cue effects, before you hear
them in the Main Mix. Only one internal
effect is selected at a time. Having six
independent buttons, it is possible
to drum in different effects all with
independent beat multipliers, without
interruption.
For more information on cue functions
in Scratch Live see “Cue Points” on
page 29.

4. The USB Insert is turned on/off with
the separate
5 Insert button. The
external USB insert can be used with
internal effects and analog insert or
independently. The USB Insert uses
USB record-5 and playback-5. The
Send can serve as a USB audio output
for recording a submix on a computer,
or be used in conjunction with the USB
Return to form an external USB effects
loop. This loop feature eliminates gain
structure issues associated with using
Send and Return signals that are not
co-located.
5. The FlexFX Cue is located after internal
effects, analog External Insert and the
USB 5 Insert. It is located before the
FlexFx On and FlexFx Mix level. This
allows the processed Bus signal (wet or
dry) to be cued at any time.

Bus
6. The FlexFx ON button, when off,
effectively bypasses the FlexFx bus
and passes assigned signals straight
through to the Main Mix. What you hear
in the main mix is a dry version of any
signal assigned to the FlexFx Loop. This
allows any combination of internal and
external effects to be applied and cued
before being heard in the Main Mix,
without interrupting play of assigned dry
signals. When you’re ready to listen to
the effected signal, engage the FlexFx ON
button (green). Any combination of the
above controls can be left on with only
one of them determining if an effect is
applied or not. You get to choose.
7. The FlexFx Mix level control (on the front
of the mixer) allows you to control the
level of the FlexFx Bus signal in the Main
Mix. This control has nothing to do with
the Level/Depth control for the internal
effect or the mix of Wet/Dry. It performs
the same function whether an effect is
applied or not. This control serves one
function: it keeps the FlexFx Bus out of
the Main Mix so you can adjust effects
before bringing them into the main mix.
If the FlexFx Mix Level control is turned up,
and the FlexFx On button Is Off (bypassed),
there is no change in what is heard in the
Main Mix when a channel is assigned
to the FlexFx Loop. In this instance, it is
possible to add internal or External effects
to the signal, and Cue the effected signal
in the headphones before switching the
FlexFx On button On.
It is also possible to have the FlexFx Mix
Level turned down, FlexFx On or Off, create
a submix, add effects (or not) and Cue or
rehearse the mix before bringing it into the
Main Mix.
This architecture is very flexible and
opens up many new possibilities not
possible with simple effect insert designs
found on other mixers.
Internal Audio Effects
The internal effects engine is located
in the FlexFx Loop. This allows any
combination of PGM 1, PGM 2, PGM 3
PGM 4, MIC 1 and MIC 2 to be assigned
to an effect. The FlexFx Loop supports
recording, cueing and Main Mix level
control of an effected signal. This has
several advantages over conventional
effects assignment.
Note: Individual effects are turned on/off
using the effects buttons. The FlexFx
Loop which includes the two external
inserts) is turned On/Off with the FlexFx
On button (off functions as a loop
bypass.
Six built-in effects:
• Flanger
• Filter
• Hold Echo • Robot
• Phaser
• Reverb
General Behavior
• The effect time is saved for each effect.
• Changing BPM for one effect changes
the BPM for all effects.
• Tapping the BPM requires at least two
taps.
• Changing the Beat multiplier results in
an immediate change in the effect time.
• Changing the effect time adjusts the
multiplier for other effects so that the
new multiplier is as close as possible to
the saved effect time.
Effects Display and Match Indicator
BPM: 120 < 4/1
TIME: 2097MS
||||||
FLEXFX
The effects display shows the current
BPM, beat multiplier and time for a
selected effect. A bar graph represents
the effect time relative to its range. If no
effect is selected, the information for the
last effect is displayed.
The effect time is normally a product
of the BPM and the Beat multiplier. If the
left (<) or right (>) arrow appears, there is
an inequality between the BPM*Beat and
time. The arrow indicates which way to
adjust the Beat to correct the inequality
and get the closest possible time. If an
asterisk (*) is displayed, the BPM*Beat
results in the correct time as displayed.
For example, 120 BPM with a 4/1 beat
multiplier would result in an effect time
of 2000 ms. If the time is adjusted to a
different value, such as 2097 ms, an arrow
indicates that the product of the displayed
BPM and multiplier does not result in the
displayed effect time. For this example,
2000 ms is below 2097 ms, so hitting the
< Beat button will snap to 120 * 4/1 and
change the time to its product, 2000 ms.
A flashing bar graph indicates that the
requested effect time is out of range.
For example, if a BPM of 120 is used
with a beat multiplier of 4, the resulting
time is 2 seconds. If the multiplier is set to
16, the resulting time would be 8 seconds,
which is out of range. In this case, the
time remains at 2 seconds and the bar
flashes.
Effects Synchronization
The mixer can synchronize its internal
effects to songs tagged with BPM values
in Serato Scratch Live. With no other
channels assigned to the FlexFX, press
the FlexFX button in the channel playing
a song with a tagged BPM in Scratch
Live. The Match Indicator will change to
a flashing asterisk (*) indicating that the
mixer is now tracking the Scratch Live
supplied BPM, and the internal effect
BPM will change to this value. The mixer
will continue to track the Scratch Live
BPM until a new BPM is manually tapped
in using the Tap button.

USB Audio
There are six stereo record channels and
five stereo playback channels. These
channels are simultaneously available on
two USB ports, allowing two computers to
share the device. This allows two DJs to
play together and supports uninterrupted
transitions from one DJ to another. The
six stereo record channels are sent to
both USB ports. The five stereo playback
channels from each port are summed
in the mixer (playback-1 sums with
playback-1 and playback-2 two sums
with playback-2 etc.) USB audio is 32-bit
floating point with a sample rate of 48
kHz.
The Sixty-Eight is a dual personality
device. When using Serato Scratch Live,
proprietary Serato Audio Research drivers
are used in place of ASIO (windows) and
Core Audio (Mac) drivers supplied by
Rane. These Rane drivers are used when
Scratch Live is not running.
12
Rane ASIO and Core Audio drivers
allow the Sixty-Eight to act as a 12-record
10-playback USB sound card for use with
multiple third-party software applications
that support ASIO or Core Audio. ASIO
and Core Audio drivers are multi-client,
meaning they allow multiple applications
on a computer to share the device at the
same time. ASIO and Core Audio drivers
are not available when Scratch Live is
running.
The Sixty-Eight has two USB ports,
allowing simultaneous connection of
two computers. Each port is completely
independent. It is possible to run Scratch
Live using proprietary drivers on one port
while running third party software using
ASIO or Core Audio on the other, Mac or
PC, in any combination.

Core Audio (Macintosh)
The Sixty-Eight uses a low-latency Core
Audio device driver to interface with
software applications other than Scratch
Live on Macintosh operating systems.
Core Audio allows different audio software
applications to simultaneously stream
audio to and from the Sixty-Eight.
To launch the Sixty-Eight driver Control
Panel, open the System Preferences
window. Locate the Sixty-Eight in the
“Other” section and click the Sixty-Eight
icon.
Core Audio
and ASIO
Drivers
The Scratch Live installer includes drivers
that allow you to use your Rane SixtyEight with other audio applications. The
Core Audio (Mac) and ASIO (PC) drivers
can be installed when you install Scratch
Live. See the instructions in “Installing
Scratch Live” on page 12.
Once installed, you will have the option
to select the Sixty-Eight’s inputs and
outputs in the audio settings of other
applications when Scratch Live is not
open.
NOTE: These drivers only work with audio
applications that are compatible with
these audio standards.
ASIO (Windows)
The Sixty-Eight uses a low-latency, multiclient, ASIO device driver to interface with
software applications other than Scratch
Live on Windows operating systems.
Multi-client ASIO allows different audio
software applications to simultaneously
stream audio to and from the Sixty-Eight.
If the same playback channel is selected
in more than one application, the driver
mixes the audio from the applications
before streaming it to the device.
The driver Control Panel may be
launched from the Windows Control
Panel. Select Start > Control Panel > Rane
Sixty-Eight.
14
Driver Control Panel
The control Panel consists of three pages,
Preferences, PGM 1-4 and MIDI. To
move between the three pages, click the
Preferences, PGM 1-4 or MIDI
icon in
the upper left-hand corner of the control
panel.
The Preferences page controls the
following functions:
• Headphone Tone: These Low and
High tone controls affect the frequency
response of the headphone output
so that it may be matched to the
headphones in use.
• USB-6 Record: The three radio buttons
select Main Mix, Mic 1 or Mic 2 as the
record source for USB stereo record pair
6 (11-12).
• Button Backlight: The two radio
buttons allow the user to turn the
button backlight off or on. When off, the
buttons are not backlit.
• LCD Contrast: This control allows
adjustment of the LCD display contrast.
Contrast is the ratio of character to
backlight intensity.
• Buffer Size: The Buffer Size control
allows the USB driver buffer size to be
increased or decreased. The Sixty-Eight
drivers are designed to run very reliably
at latencies below 8 milliseconds.
However, computer performance
and available resources (number of
applications running) may adversely
affect the computer’s ability to stream
audio reliably. If pops and clicks are
heard in the USB audio, try increasing
the buffer size to eliminate them. With
ASIO, total round-trip latency is equal
to Buffer Size plus device latency. With
Core Audio, total round-trip latency
is equal to Buffer Size plus software
application buffer latency, plus device
latency. Device latency is 3.1 ms.
• Firmware Update: If the Sixty-Eight
firmware installed on your computer is
newer than the firmware in your SixtyEight, the Update Device Firmware
panel is enabled. Pressing the Update
Firmware button will update the SixtyEight firmware to the newer version
installed with your driver.
PGM Inputs 1-4 have one panel for each
channel strip on the mixer. Each PGM
panel controls the following functions:
• Analog Input Source: The analog input
for each channel may be set for Linelevel (CD), Phono-level or S/PDIF using
a dip switch on the rear of the mixer.
The control panel shows the input mode
selected on the mixer. The mode cannot
be changed from the control panel.
RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0
• Phono Sensitivity: If Phono Input
is selected on the mixer, the Phono
sensitivity control appears as shown in
the PGM 3 and 4 panels above. Clicking
the down-arrow displays a list of 16
sensitivity settings between 2.5 mV
and 10 mV in 0.5 mV steps. Choose
the setting that most closely matches
the level of a CD input, or to the setting
that provides the highest output without
clipping.
• Filter Resonance: Each channel of
the Sixty-Eight has a filter knob that
provides both High- and Low-Cut
filtering. Filter resonance controls how
“peaky” the gain is at the filter cutoff
frequency. The Low setting provides
the smoothest filter without adding
gain. The High setting adds accent to
frequencies near the filter cutoff point
by adding about 5 dB of gain. Adding
gain in a narrow region around the cutoff
frequency adds a “zipper” noise to audio
as the filter is swept.
• Record Source: This control allows
selecting the record source for USB
record pairs 1-4. Scratch Live uses PH/
CD for the control signal. If Scratch Live
is being used, the record source must
remain PH/CD for any input providing a
vinyl control signal. PGM Post and AUX
selections are available to support multichannel recording when using thirdparty software applications.

Scratch
Live: Getting
Started
System Overview
The Scratch Live control records and
CDs are pressed with an audible tone
specifically developed for controlling the
Scratch Live software application.
The Sixty-Eight converts the control
signal coming from each deck into digital
audio, to be sent via USB to the Scratch
Live software, which decodes that signal
into a stream of information based on
what the DJ is doing with the control disc.
A virtual ‘deck’ replicates the movements
of the control disc. Audio files loaded
onto the Virtual Decks are then played
back through the outputs of the SixtyEight, with any manipulation of the control
discs reproduced on the audio, effectively
emulating vinyl control of the files loaded
in software.
Connecting the Sixty-Eight
Follow these steps to set up the SixtyEight for Scratch Live, using up to four
turntables or CD players to control the
software playback:
1. Inputs
Connect your CD players or turntables to
the ANALOG INPUTS on the Sixty-Eight.
If your CD players have S/PDIF outputs,
connect these to the S/PDIF inputs on the
Sixty-Eight. We recommend connecting
decks left of the mixer to 1 and 2, and
decks on the right to 3 and 4.
Match the L channel from each of
your decks (usually white) with the white
(uppermost) RCA sockets on the mixer
and R (usually red) with the red sockets.
This is important to give Scratch Live
18
the correct direction of playback. If your
songs play backwards, you probably have
the left and right channels swapped from
your deck.
2. Input Level Selection
Set each input to the correct input level
using the P - L - S switches. P = Phono, L
= Line (for CD players) and S = S/PDIF.
Unused inputs are best set to L.
3. USB Audio
Select Scratch Live as the audio source
for a channel by turning a PGM SOURCE
knob to a
USB input. Any of the four
analog inputs may be used for Scratch
Live vinyl emulation control. Control input
sources are selected in Scratch Live
software.
4. Connect the Sixty-Eight to your
computer
Using the provided USB cable, connect
either USB A or USB B to an available
USB 2.0 port on your computer. The
Sixty-Eight automatically switches its
control point if only one of the USB ports
is connected.
Make sure you connect it directly to
your computer and not through a hub or
splitter.
Turntable Setup
1. Set the tone arms to the specific
recommendations of the cartridge
used, so that the needle never leaves
the record, but not heavy enough that
it heats up significantly. Both produce
poor tracking.
Installing
Scratch Live
Check for the latest download version of
Scratch Live software at serato.com. If it
is newer than the version on your CDROM, we recommend installing it instead.
Mac
1. Insert the Software Installation CDROM and double-click the Scratch Live
Installer.mpkg icon.
or
Launch the installer you just
downloaded from serato.com.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions. Once
the installation is complete, Scratch Live
will appear in your applications list. You
may like to drag the Scratch Live icon to
your dock for quick launching.
3. Plug in your Sixty-Eight. No extra
installation is required to use Scratch
Live.
2. Grounding is extremely important when
using Scratch Live. Make sure you have
good connections from the ground wires
of your turntables to a grounding post
on the Sixty-Eight. If you do not ground
your turntables properly, the control
signal will be noisy and the tracking of
the record position will be erratic.
CD Player Setup
Disable all built-in effects on the CD
player, including keylock/master tempo.
RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0
4. The optional Rane Device Drivers
are required for other software you
may have that uses Core Audio to
communicate with your Rane device. To
install the Core Audio drivers, doubleclick the .pkg file inside the appropriate
product folder in the Rane Device
Drivers folder on the software installation
CD. Core Audio driver updates are
available to download from the product’s
page at rane.com.
3. Follow the on-screen instructions. Once
the installation is complete, Scratch
Live appears in the Start Menu under All
Programs > Serato > Scratch Live.
Because the Sixty-Eight was connected
prior to installing Scratch Live, no extra
hardware installation is required.
Additional Windows ASIO Drivers
Once Scratch Live is installed, any
additional hardware that is connected
will be recognized and the drivers will be
automatically installed.
Starting the Software
Windows
It is important that Windows users install
the Sixty-Eight drivers as well as the
Scratch Live software. The easiest way
to do this is to allow the Scratch Live
installer to do all the work.
1. Connect your Sixty-Eight before you
insert your installation CD. When you
first connect it, Windows will attempt
to install the drivers via the hardware
wizard. Cancel and close the hardware
wizard.
2. Insert the Software Installation CDROM. Make sure your Sixty-Eight is
connected first. If a window doesn’t
open automatically, browse to the CD
drive. Run setup.exe.
or
Launch the installer you just
downloaded from serato.com.
Close all other programs on your Mac or
PC. When you load Scratch Live for the
first time, you will see the screen shown
above.
Installing More Than One Version
Installing a new version will by default
overwrite any previous version you had
installed, however it is easy to have more
than one version of Scratch Live installed
if you wish.
Mac users: before installing, find the
Scratch Live application (by default it is
in the Applications folder), and rename
it - for example Scratch Live 2.0.0.
When you install the new version, the
old application will not be overwritten,
and you can choose which version you
want to run by going into the folder and
double clicking on the application. You
can also do this if you have already
installed the latest version - just rename
the application (eg. to Scratch Live 2.2),
and then reinstall the earlier version.
Windows Users: before installing, find the
Scratch Live executable (by default it is
in C:\Program files\Serato\ScratchLive),
and rename it - for example Scratch
Live 2.0.0.exe. When you install the
new version, the old executable will not
be overwritten, and you can choose
which version you want to run by going
into the folder and double-clicking the
executable. You can also do this if you
have already installed the latest version
— just rename the executable (eg. to
Scratch Live 2.4.exe), and then reinstall
the earlier version.
Firmware Check
On occasion new firmware updates are
included within Scratch Live software
updates. After updating, run Scratch
Live and click the Hardware tab in the
Setup screen to see if new firmware is
installable. See “Updating Firmware” on
page 44.
If you’re using the TTM 57SL and/or
Sixty-Eight mixers at various clubs, you
may come across one that has a newer
version of firmware installed. With the
newer firmware, the mixer will still be
usable with older Scratch Live versions,
but certain features may not work as
expected. To avoid this situation, make
sure you always have the latest version of
Scratch Live installed.
Using the Tool Tips
Click on the ? icon to enable tool tips.
Tool tips provide a handy way to learn
the various features of Scratch Live.
Move the mouse over a section of the
screen to bring up a context-sensitive
tool tip. Holding the mouse over the ?
button with tool tips turned on will show
you a list of all keyboard shortcuts. Tool
tips are available in several languages.
Scratch Live will display the tool tips in
the language that your computer is set to.
If your language is not available, the tool
tips will be displayed in English.

How to Calibrate Scratch Live
Calibrating
Scratch Live
Since Scratch Live is controlled by an
analog signal, there is no guarantee of
what state that signal will be in by the time
the software gets to interpret it. Therefore,
Scratch Live needs to be able to handle a
wide range of signals, and be configurable
to use them optimally. Calibrating is just
configuring the software to your situation.
Calibration is equally important for both
vinyl and CD users of Scratch Live.
There are two parts to the Scratch Live
control signal: The directional tone, and
the noise map. Listening to the control
vinyl, the directional tone is the 1 kHz
tone. The noise map sounds like random
noise over the top of the tone.
The directional tone provides the
current speed and direction of the record,
while the noise map tells the software
precisely where on the record the needle
is currently.
The Noise Threshold
A threshold is a lower limit, below which
a process will not occur. In the case of
Scratch Live, the noise threshold is the
limit below which the input signal will not
be interpreted as control signal; in other
words if it’s below the threshold, it is
considered noise and ignored.
This setting is necessary because a
stylus is very sensitive, and will inevitably
pick up noise from the environment as
well as the signal on the record, especially
in the noisy environment of a live show.
20
With music playing in the background
(from any source), put your needle on
the record with the turntable stopped.
If you are using CD players, the same
rules apply. Have the CD deck paused
or stopped while calibrating. Ensure the
input level in Scratch Live is set correctly
to accept a LINE level signal. See “Input
Select Status” on page 44.
Click and hold the estimate button
until the slider stops moving. Moving
the threshold slider to the left will make
Scratch Live more sensitive to slow record
movement, but also more sensitive to
background noise.
Repeat the process for each deck.
Things to remember:
• Your needle must be on the record.
• Your turntable (or CD player) must be
stationary.
• The background music playing must be
at a similar level to which you will play
your set at.
• Calibrate Scratch Live every time you
play.
TIP: If the slider jumps to the far right,
then you have a problem with noise
in your turntables/CD players/mixer.
Check all your connections and make
sure your equipment is well earthed.
In some situations you will not be able
to improve the signal quality, and you
will have to play on regardless. In this
situation, stick to REL mode.
The Scopes
The scopes on the Setup screen in
Scratch Live display the input signal as a
phase diagram. The key factors to look at
on the scope display are crisp clean lines,
round shape, and the tracking percentage
in the lower right corner.
Start both turntables or CD players. You
will see green rings appear in the scope
view as shown.
For optimal performance the inner ring
should be as close to circular as possible.
Use the scope zoom slider (1x to 16x)
to zoom in or out as necessary. Use the
scope L/R Balance and P/A Balance
controls to adjust the shape of the inner
ring.
The number in the top left corner of the
scope view gives the current absolute
position within the control record or CD.
The number in the top right corner is
the current speed in RPM. In the bottom
left is the current threshold setting, and
the number in the bottom right shows
the percentage of readable signal – this
number should be close to 85% when
your system is calibrated properly.
Calibration Troubleshooting
After calibration, the number in the upper
right corner of the scope view should say
0.0 while the needle is on the record and
the turntable is stopped.
If that number is fluctuating then
manually move the Estimate slider to the
right until that number is stable at 0.0.
If you’ve moved the slider all the way
to -24 and its still fluctuating then you
have a grounding or interference problem
somewhere in the chain.
If so, the first thing to check is that
the grounding wire coming from your
turntable is connected to a Sixty-Eight
grounding post.
Next, make sure that the Sixty-Eight
isn’t sitting next to a power source
such as a power strip and that the RCA
cables aren’t laying across other power
conducting cables.
If you are still experiencing issues, you
might have to adjust the placement of
your setup. For example, make sure bass
bins aren’t directly under the turntables.
If you have trouble getting the rings
circular, you probably need to clean or
change your needles.
If the image appears as a line, then
you have a missing channel. Check your
wiring and needles. For more calibration
troubleshooting help see “Scope
Reading and Fixes” on page 50.

Importing
and Playing
Music
2. Once you have located your music,
drag the folder or files you want to
import onto the purple “ All...” icon.
This is located to the left of your screen
at the top of the crates and playlist
window. If you wish to import all of your
music, just drag your whole music folder
onto this icon.
TIP: You can also import by dragging
files and folders directly from Windows
Explorer (PC version) or Finder (Mac
version) into the Scratch Live library.
Importing Your Music
The easiest way to load music into your
library is by using the Files button:
1. Click on the Files button to open the
files panel. The left side of this window
displays various locations on your
computer hard drive (and external
drives if you have one). Click on these
locations to navigate your computer and
find your music. By default, your music
will usually be found in either “Music”
(Mac) or “My Music” (Windows).
TIP: Adjust the
size of the Files
window by
clicking and dragging near the three
dots up or down. The vertical crates
window adjusts left and right.
Supported File Types
Scratch Live supports fixed and variable

Playing Music
Click on the “ All...” icon to show all the
tracks in your library. Use the keyboard
shortcut Shift - Left Arrow to load the
highlighted track on to the Left Deck, and
Shift - Right Arrow to load the highlighted
track on to the Right Deck.
TIP: You can also load tracks to Decks
using the mouse. Click and drag a track
from the track list area on to either
Virtual Deck.
To start playing a track, simply put
the needle on the record and start the
turntable. The track will start playing as
soon as it detects the signal from the
control vinyl (or CD).
In ABS mode, the track will play from
the position dictated by the placement of
the needle on the record. If you place the
needle at the beginning of the record, the
track will start playing from the beginning.
You can skip through the track by picking
up the needle and placing it further into
the record, just as with regular records
(This is known as needle dropping). See
“Scratch Live Modes” on page 27.
Track Display
When a track is loaded, the track name,
artist and length are displayed in the track
title bar, and the Virtual Deck shows a
solid black line.
If the track has BPM or key information
written in the tag this will also be
displayed. See “Set auto-BPM.”

Primary & Secondary Deck
Layers
When using the Sixty-Eight with more
than two Virtual Decks, layers are used
to determine which Decks respond to
keyboard shortcuts and the Control Strips
on the Sixty-Eight. The Primary Deck layer
is the main left and right Decks that you
will use, while the Secondary Deck layer
is the other secondary Decks. You decide
which Decks are to be the Primary and
Secondary Decks, this can be configured
on the Setup screen. See “Select
Primary Decks” on page 44.
To switch focus between the Primary
and Secondary Deck layers, use the Layer
button on the Sixty-Eight or the ~ (tilde)
keyboard shortcut.
TIP: Turn on the Flashing Deck
Indicator option in the Setup screen
to display a flashing crimson border
around the Decks in the currently

Whitelabel.net audio files are a unique
format (file extension wl.mp3) developed
by Serato. They are specially prepared for
use in Scratch Live; pre-analyzed, tagged
with song and artist info, BPM and album
art where possible.
Whitelabel audio files play as high
quality 320 kbps stereo audio in Scratch
Live when Rane Scratch Live hardware is
connected. Without Scratch Live hardware
connected, or when playing these files
through other mp3 software and devices,
they will play as low quality 32 kbps mono
audio.
Whitelabel audio files are promotional
releases from records labels available to
Scratch Live DJs for free from Whitelabel.

Preparing
Your Files
Before you play your music in Scratch
Live, It is important to first analyze your
files.
The analyze files function processes
the songs in your library to detect file
corruption, saves the waveform overview
to an ID3 tag*, and calculates auto-gain
and BPM values.
How to Analyze Files
To analyze files run Scratch Live with the
Sixty-Eight disconnected. On the left side
of the main screen, click the Analyze Files
button to automatically build overviews for
all the tracks in your library.
TIP: You can drag and drop individual
folders, crates or files onto the Analyze
Files button to force the building of
overviews at any time.
About Corrupt Files
If Scratch Live detects a corrupt
file it will tag it with a corrupt file
icon:
It is very important that you delete ANY
corrupt files from your library as they can
cause Scratch Live to crash regardless
if you play the file or not. See “Status
Icons” on page 38 and “Corrupt File
Descriptions and Diagnoses” on page
49.

Set Auto BPM
The Control CD
Playback
Control
If this option is checked while analyzing
files, Scratch Live will calculate the
estimated tempos of your files. If Scratch
Live is confident that the Auto BPM
estimate for a file is accurate, it will be
written to an ID3 tag* in the file. The Auto
BPM function will not be applied if the
track already contains BPM information.
To re-analyze these files and use Auto
BPM or auto gain on them, drag them
onto the Analyze Files button. If you
know your file’s BPM will fall within a
certain range, use the range drop down
to avoid double or half value BPMs being
calculated.
*NOTE: ID3 tags contain data about
your tracks and are saved inside the
files themselves. Genre, track name
and artist are examples of common tag
information. See “Editing ID3 tags” on
page 38.
The Offline Player
The offline player is a useful tool for
preparing crates, auditioning tracks, and
setting cue and loop points. The offline
player is available when Scratch Live
hardware is not connected, and outputs
through the current default audio device.
Load a track to the offline player by
dragging and dropping onto the Deck, or
pressing shift+left arrow. If the end of the
loaded track is reached, the next track in
the current playlist is played automatically.
Click the Offline Player Controls button
(outlined below) to expand and hide the
offline player controls.
The control CD
has two tracks.
The first track is 15
minutes long and
controls playback.
The second track
is 40 seconds long
and controls vinyl
scroll.
Vinyl Scroll
The Control Record
The control record has two sides. The
first side is 10 minutes long and contains
the Vinyl Scroll section. The second side
is 15 minutes long. Scratch Live can be
configured to work with records playing
at either 33 RPM or 45 RPM, depending
on your preference. The record has thin
marks every minute, and a thicker mark
every 5 minutes (when playing at 33
RPM). These marks are to assist you when
using needle dropping to move through
the track. These marks do not affect the
playback of the track.
The mode will switch when it reaches
the end of the record so your track won’t
stop. See “Absolute Mode” on page
27.
Vinyl Scroll allows you to select and load
tracks using only your turntables (or CD
player) – no contact with the computer
necessary! To use Vinyl Scroll with
turntables, lift the needle off the record
and drop it into special “bonus track”
section at the end of the record’s A side.
The movement of the control disk now
controls the selected track within your
library. Lift the needle out of the Vinyl
Scroll section of the record and into the
lead out (between the Vinyl Scroll area and
the end of the record) to change crates
or iTunes playlists. Go back to the Vinyl
Scroll area of the record to choose a track
within the crate or playlist. Once you have
found the track you wish to play, put the
needle back at the beginning of the record
and it will load automatically.
This feature is available to CD users.
Go to track 2 on the control CD to access
Vinyl Scroll. Find the track you want to
load, and go back to track 1. The track
you selected will be loaded and ready to
play. You can reverse the direction of Vinyl
Scroll and set the sensitivity in the Setup
screen.
TIP: You can also use Vinyl Scroll in the
Prepare window. See the options for
“Vinyl Control” on page 45.

Main Screen
Overview
Virtual Deck
The Virtual Deck
shows everything
about the speed
and position of a
track. As the vinyl
rotates, so does
the line on the
label. The circular
progress bar around the edge is a visual
representation of the position within the
song, and can be set to flash to warn
you that the track is nearing its end. The
time and remaining time are displayed in
minutes and seconds. The pitched BPM
(BPM with pitch adjustment multiplier
added) is shown on the left of the Virtual
Deck, and the turntable speed as a
percentage pitch shift is shown on the
right of the Virtual Deck. If the track has
no BPM information, pitched BPM will not
be shown.
If you are playing regular vinyl, notice
the Virtual Deck behaving strangely as
Scratch Live attempts to decode the
incoming signal. This will not cause any
problems, but you may find it distracting.
You can unload the currently loaded track
using the Virtual Deck eject button.
TIP: Use the keyboard shortcut shiftalt-arrow to unload a track from the
Virtual Deck.

USB Sources & Analog Inputs
Track Overview Display
Each Virtual Deck in
Scratch Live has a
USB source, which
allows you to select
which Analog input
on the Sixty-Eight
is used to control
it. You can then
configure which
Virtual Deck in Scratch Live plays through
which channel on the Sixty-Eight. To set a
USB Source in Scratch Live, click the USB
Source dropdown box above the Virtual
Deck.
Any Virtual Deck with USB Source 1 or
2 selected can output through channels 1
or 2 on the Sixty-Eight, while any Virtual
Decks with USB Source 3 or 4 selected
can output through channels 3 or 4.
Once you have set USB sources for
all the Virtual Decks, use the PGM Source
knobs on the Sixty-Eight to select a USB
source for that channel.
This view provides a complete
overview of the track waveform,
and includes a marker to show
the current position within the
track. This view is useful for
finding transitions within the
track. The waveform is colored
according to the sound spectrum
– red representing low frequency
bass sounds, green representing
mid frequency sounds and blue
representing high frequency treble
sounds.
You can jump to different
positions within the track by
clicking on the Track Overview display
(disabled in ABS Mode). Grey lines behind
the overview show the length of the track
– a thin grey line every minute, and a thick
grey line every 5 minutes. The overview
will be filled when you load the track onto
a Virtual Deck. On slower computers,
you should disable Autofill overviews in
the Library tab of the Setup screen. See
“Preparing Your Files” on page 22
and “AutoFill Overviews” on page 46.
Visual Aids
When the track is playing several
waveforms are displayed. Each shows a
different aspect of the track being played.
Tempo Matching Display
The Tempo Matching display area
provides a helpful tool for beat matching.
Scratch Live detects the beats within the
track, and places a row of orange peaks
(for the track on the left side) above a
row of blue peaks (for the track on the
right side) in the Tempo Matching display
area. When the two tracks are matched
to the same tempo, the peaks will line
up. The tempo display is aligned with the
beginning of the bar, so the peaks keep
their relative position as the track plays.
This display does not show the relative
timing of the beats, only the tempos of the
tracks. The peaks will still line up when the
tracks are playing at the same tempo, but
are out of sync.
Main Waveform Display
This view provides a
close-up of the track,
including color coding to
show the frequency of the
sound; red representing
low frequency bass,
green representing
mid-frequencies and
blue representing highfrequency treble sounds.
You can also switch to a
three-band spectrum view
by holding the ctrl key and
clicking on the waveform.
Click on the waveform to
‘scrub’ or make fine adjustments to your
position within the track. This applies
to INT Mode only, and may be useful if
you wish to set cue points in your tracks
without your turntables or CD players
connected. The Main Waveform is
zoomed around the current position in the
track. See “Cue Points” on page 29
and “Scratch Live Modes” on page
27.
RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0
TIP: Use the + and – keys to zoom in
and out.
TIP: Waveform can be either vertical or
horizontal. See “Display Modes” on page
26.
Kick Drum
In this example, the red part
of the wave represents a kick
drum, while the purple part
represents a snare drum.
Snare Drum
Beat Matching Display
This view shows the position of
beats within the track. When beat
matching, this view helps align the
downbeats of the two tracks. The
markers are matched up when the
two tracks are beat matched.
Example: Here is a
demonstration of using the visual
aids to help beat match. In this
example, the track that is playing
is on the Left Deck, and the track
to be mixed in is on the Right Deck.
1. Start the track playing on the Right
Deck. After a few seconds, blue peaks
appear in the Tempo Matching display.
2. Adjust the pitch of the right turntable
until the blue peaks sit under the orange
peaks in the Tempo Matching display.
Once they are aligned, the two tracks
have the same tempo.
3. Next align the markers in the Beat
Matching display. Watch the color of the
items passing by in the Main Waveform
display. Remember that a kick or
bass drum will be red in color, and a
snare drum will be green or blue. This
technique will by no means guarantee
perfect mixes, but may help to speed up
the process of beat matching.
Master Gain
The master output of Scratch Live
can be controlled using the master
gain control. This adjusts the
volume of all tracks played.Ctrl-click the
knob to reset it to 12 o’clock.
NOTE: For best results, set the master
gain to 12 o’clock, and adjust the
volume of individual tracks using the
track gain adjustment.
33 / 45 Speeds
Set this to match the speed
of your turntable for normal
playback.
Tracking Indicator
The tracking indicators
on the main screen
show the quality of the signal coming from
the control record or CD. The length of
the bar indicates the speed of the record
or CD. The color indicates the amount
of position information Scratch Live is
receiving. When you are playing the record
at normal speed, the tracking indicator
should be grey. If it is mostly red there is a
problem reading the control signal. Make
sure your needles are clean, and check
the calibration in the setup screen.
NOTE: It is normal for the tracking
indicator to be red when cueing or
scratching.
Tap Tempo
For tracks with no BPM
information, there is a tap tempo
button displayed where the BPM usually
is, in the song info area. Pressing altspace bar activates the tempo tapper
(press alt-space bar a second time to
activate the tempo tapper on the Right
Virtual Deck). Tap the space bar along
with the beat. After you’ve tapped the
first beat, you can switch to double time
tapping, half time, start of each bar etc.
The range is set by the first two taps, after
that you can switch to any steady rhythm
you feel comfortable with – quarter notes,
half note, whole notes. Esc resets the
BPM, Enter saves the BPM to the track.
You can use the mouse if you prefer.
Your CD player or turntable’s pitch slider
doesn’t need to be at zero, we do the
math for you. You can also use the tempo
tapper when no song is loaded, for finding
the BPM of regular records, for example.
Key Lock
When Key Lock is on, the key or
pitch of the song stays locked at
what it would be if the track was playing
at normal speed, regardless of the platter
speed of the turntable or CD player. Key
Lock has scratch detection, so that it
automatically turns off when scratching
for a natural scratching sound. Turn Key
Lock on or off by clicking the button to the
top right of the Virtual Deck.
TIP: F5 and F10 will turn Key Lock on
and off for the Left and Right Decks
respectively.
Repeat
Use the Repeat function to repeat the
song across the entire length of the
control record.
TIP: Short “loop” samples can be
turned into a continuous track using
the Repeat function. The loops must be
less than 10 seconds long, and cut at
the start and end of a bar.
Censor
Use the censor button to ‘mask’
parts of a song, or use as a special
effect. When you press the censor button,
the track starts playing backwards from
that point. When you release the censor
button, the track plays forward from the
point you would have been, had you not
pressed the censor button. Censor is
available only in REL and INT Modes.
Eject
This ejects the track playing or
loaded from it’s Virtual Deck.
Autoplay
Click the Auto button to enable
autoplay. With this setting turned
on, when one track finishes playing, the
next track starts automatically. Load from
a crate to play through the songs in that
crate, or from your library to play through
your library. Autoplay works in both REL
and INT modes. Play from start must be
checked in the Playback tab of the Setup
screen for autoplay to work correctly. See
“Play From Start” on page 45.

Track Gain
Use the track gain knob to balance
the volume of the tracks in your
library. Any adjustment made to the
gain of a track is saved with the file,
and will be reapplied to the entire
track when it is loaded again. The
level meter shows the level sent to
the hardware interface after both
individual track gain and master
gain adjustment.Ctrl-click the knob to
reset it to 12 o’clock.
Display
Modes
NOTE: For automatic gain setting of
your tracks, see “Use Auto Gain” on
page 45.
USB Dropout Indicator
The USB dropout
indicator on the main
screen is a useful
trouble shooting
tool if you have problems with audio
dropouts. Such dropouts are caused by
an interruption in passing the audio to the
Scratch Live hardware interface. If such an
interruption (or dropout) occurs, a red light
will appear briefly, just to the left of the
Scratch Live logo at the top of the screen.
The light will be red for one second, and
then orange for four seconds.
If you experience USB drop outs:
• Increase the USB Buffer Size See “USB
Buffer Size (Latency)” on page 44.
• Try closing other applications that are
running at the same time as Scratch
Live.
• Try turning off background tasks, for
example, wireless networking.
• If your CPU load is very high, try
decreasing the Maximum Screen
Updates setting in the Display tab of the
Setup screen. See “Maximum Screen
Updates” on page 47.
Scratch Live gives you the option of
four different display modes to suit your
style of performance. The Display Mode
buttons are located in the top left of the
Main Screen. They are:
Library Mode: Maximizes your
library space by minimizing the
Virtual Deck information displayed. In
Library Mode only the track information,
Virtual Deck, mode, track overview display
and meter are displayed.
Library

waveforms in the middle.
Album Art Grid 2: Displays the
album art as a grid with the track
information text below.
Classic Horizontal Mode: Two
Decks are displayed on the left and
right sides of the screen with horizontal
waveforms in the middle.
2-Deck Stack Mode: Two Decks
are stacked on top of each other
in a horizontal fashion. Stack Mode aligns
the waveforms on top of each other, while
maximizing waveform space. The controls
for all Decks can be shown or hidden by
pressing the Show Deck Controls Button
on any Deck.
NOTE: Your files must have album
art added for it to be displayed. See
“Adding Album Art” on page 38.
TIP: For all views you can adjust the

RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0
Absolute Mode
Relative Mode
ABS mode is the default mode, and
most closely resembles the properties of
normal vinyl. The beginning of the track
is mapped to the start of the record, and
by picking up the tone arm and moving
the needle to another part of the record
(needle dropping) you can move to a
different position within the track.
ABS mode faithfully reproduces the
movement of vinyl control records,
including stops, starts, scratching, needle
dropping, rubbing and other turntablist
techniques.
When you reach the end of the record
using either REL or ABS modes, Scratch
Live automatically switches to INT mode.
This is known as Emergency Internal
mode, and prevents long tracks from
stopping when you run out of record.
You can switch from Emergency Internal
mode to ABS mode by lifting the needle
and placing it in the lead-in of the control
record. Emergency Internal mode will
activate after 1 second. Use the keyboard
shortcut F1 (left deck) or F6 (right deck) to
switch to ABS mode.
REL mode observes the relative forward
and backward movement of the record,
but does not take into account the
position within the record. REL mode
disables needle dropping, but allows skipfree scratching.
NOTE: Be careful when scratching
near the end of the record not to
accidentally go past this point and
into internal mode, or the track will no
longer respond to record movement!
TIP: Use the keyboard shortcut F2 (left
deck) or F7 (right deck) to switch to
REL mode.
Scratch Live
Modes
Scratch Live has three different modes of
operation. You can switch between these
modes by clicking the mode buttons near
each Virtual Deck.
See: “Drop To Absolute Position” on
page 45.
REL mode adds additional speed
controls:
Previous track – Go to the previous
track in the list.
Rewind - The rewind function
speeds up the longer you press the
button.
Fast forward – The fast forward
function speeds up the longer you
hold the button.
Next track – Jump to the next track
in the list.
RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0

Internal Mode
INT mode allows playing tracks without
external vinyl (or CD) control. INT mode
has a start / stop function and a virtual
pitch slider. Holding down the shift key
moves the pitch slider slowly. Holding the
ctrl key and clicking on the pitch slider
resets the pitch to zero.
Scratch Live automatically switches
to INT mode when the end of the control
record is reached; you can switch back
to REL mode by placing the needle in the
first five minutes of the control record.
If you switch from ABS or REL into INT
mode, Scratch Live automatically adjusts
pitch to maintain playback speed as
set by the turntable. Use the keyboard
shortcut F3 (left deck) or F8 (right deck) to
switch to INT mode.
INT mode adds these additional controls:
Play / pause reverse - Press to
play, press again to stop playback.
You can adjust the braking knob in the
setup screen to range from an immediate
stop to a slow turntable-style ‘power
down’. See “Braking” on page 45.
Play / pause forward - Press to
play, press again to stop playback.
Uses the same braking as described
above.
Pitch Slider - Use the pitch
slider to make pitch adjustments
while using INT mode. Drag the
pitch slider with the mouse to
make large pitch movements,
or hold the shift key and drag
the pitch slider to make fine
adjustments.
Clicking the RANGE button
above the slider changes the
slider range to ±8%, ±10%, ±16%, ±50%
or ±100%.

position for greater accuracy when
setting cue points.
Looping
Enable Hot Cues
To turn on hot cues, check Enable Hot
Cues in the Playback tab on the Setup
screen. When Hot Cues are enabled, you
can set cue points simply by pressing the
number keys 1 through 0 (no ctrl modifier
required). Note that you can only add cues
this way if the cue point slots are empty.
See “Enable Hot Cues” on page 44.
Use cue points in Scratch Live to mark
and trigger different parts of your tracks.
The cue point markers are saved with the
file in the track’s ID3 tag. This means they
will be present each time you load the
track.
Setting Cue Points
You can set up to five cue points for each
track. Click on the + button to place a
cue point, or use the keyboard shortcuts
below. A cue point will be set at the
current playhead position of the track and
can occupy any of the 5 slots.
Use the keyboard shortcuts: ctrlcomma (for left) and ctrl-period (for right)
to place cue points in chronological order.
Alternatively, use ctrl-1 through 0 to set a
specific cue point, i.e., to set a cue point
on the Left Deck in slot 2, press ctrl-2.
Notice the stripe on the Virtual Deck
jumps to the 12 o’clock position and
changes color when you set a cue point
– you are at the cue point when the stripe
is one solid color and at the 12 o’clock
position. As the track plays on beyond the
position of the cue point, the colored bar
shortens by a fifth for each rotation.
Likewise, as you approach the cue point,
the color will grow by a fifth each rotation.
For example, the picture below shows the
track just before the end of the 5th
rotation before the cue point.
Triggering Cue Points
Click the  arrow to the left of each cue
point to jump to it (REL and INT modes
only). You can also jump to cue points
using shortcuts: 1 through 5 for the cue
points on the Left Deck, and 6 through 0
for the Right Deck cue points.
Editing Cue Points
To remove a cue point, use the x button
on the right side of the cue point panel.
You can also overwrite cue points by
using the shortcut keys ctrl-1 through 0.
Customizing Cue Points
To change the color of a cue point, click
on the colored square and choose a new
color from the drop down menu.
To name your cue point, double click
on the “time” field. You can now edit and
name this cue point to whatever you like.
You can also drag and drop cue points
to change their order in the list. If you wish
to have the cue points sorted by time,
check Sort cues chronologically in the
Playback tab on the Setup screen. If you
load the same track onto both Decks, you
will be able to add or modify cue points
from either Deck.
When you jump to a cue point in INT
mode while paused, the track will play
from the cue point for as long as the key
or mouse button is pressed, after which
the playhead returns to the cue point. If
this is done using the keyboard while the
track is playing in either INT or REL mode,
the cue point will be repeatedly triggered,
producing a stuttering effect.
You can save up to
9 loops per track.
These loops are
saved in the file, and will be present when
you reload the track. To make a loop, set
the in-point by clicking the IN button, and
the out-point by clicking the OUT button.
To turn the loop on or off, click the LOOP
button. If you want the playhead to jump
to the start of the loop when you enable
the loop, hold the control key and press
the LOOP button.
To adjust the in-point of the loop, click
the IN button. You can use the arrow keys:
left arrow to move the in-point towards
the start of the track, right arrow to move
the in-point towards the end of the track.
Hold down the shift key while pressing the
arrow key to make coarse adjustments.
Click the IN button again to save the inpoint. The same applies to adjusting the
out-point.
You can also use the control vinyl (or
CD) to adjust the in- and out-point. Click
the IN button, then move the control vinyl.
Moving the vinyl will adjust the in-point.
Once you are happy with the new in-point,
click the IN button again to save, and
release the control vinyl.
The control vinyl will go back to
controlling playback once the record
is back up to normal speed. Using the
control vinyl to adjust loop end points is
optional — to turn this feature off, disable
Adjust loops with vinyl under the Vinyl
Control tab in the Setup screen.
There are 9 available loop slots per
track. If a loop is set in a given slot, the
background (behind the loop number)

will be green. Press the x button to clear
the loop. If you click on the locked loop
symbol, a red border will appear. This
indicates the loop is locked, and you
will not be able to adjust the end points
or delete the loop until you unlock it, by
clicking on the number again.
NOTE: Looping applies to REL and INT
modes.
Auto-Looping
Auto-looping
allows you to
create loops
instantly. If
the track has
a BPM value simply click the number of
beats you wish to loop and Scratch Live
will create the loop for you. The loop is
snapped to the beats in the song detected
by Scratch Live so even if you press the
button slightly out of time Scratch Live will
still create a perfect loop for you.
Five auto-loop buttons are available on
screen at any one time. They range from
1/32 to 32 beats. The user can select
the auto-loop range with the  and 
buttons.
Pressing an auto-loop button will create
a loop start point from the nearest beat
to the playhead (within reason), and set
a loop endpoint in the future. Pressing
auto-loop 1 while auto-loop 1 is active will
deactivate the loop. Pressing a different
auto-loop button while looping is active
will extend the endpoint of the current
loop to the appropriate new auto-loop
length.
You can also save an auto-loop to the
next available slot. When using an autoloop, a  save button is visible where
the lock loop button normally is.
NOTE: Auto-looping requires the track
BPM to be set. See “Set Auto BPM” on
page 23.
30
The A-Slot
Loop Roll with MIDI
A special loop slot ‘A’ exists for autolooping. The act of using the auto-loop
buttons sets a loop in the ‘A’ slot,
following the rules above. Turning a
loop off using the auto-loop buttons
returns you to the loop slot that you
were previously in at the time you started
auto-looping. Turning the loop off using
the LOOP button leaves you in the ‘A’
slot. The ‘A’ slot is not saved to disk
automatically, pressing ‘save’ saves the
loop to the first empty slot in 1-9.
Auto-looping shortcut keys are alt-1
to 5 for the Left Deck, and alt-6 to 0 for
the Right Deck. They correspond to the
looping buttons as laid out on screen. ie.
if the onscreen buttons display 1 2 4 8 16
beat loops, alt-1 triggers a 1 beat loop,
and alt-5 triggers a 16 beat loop.
You can assign loop roll to MIDI two ways:
1. After pressing the MIDI assign button
in Scratch Live, press the control + alt
keys, click on an auto-loop value, then
click on the button/slider you want it
mapped to on your MIDI controller.
2. You can assign the singular loop roll
button to MIDI, then assign a MIDI
knob or slider on your controller to the
autoloop select knob (visible in the MIDI
assign panel area when in MIDI assign
mode) to change the values on the fly.
Loop Roll
NOTE: Like auto-loop, loop roll requires
a BPM value written to the ID3 tag in
order to work. Build overviews with the
“Set Auto BPM” box checked and the
proper range for your music selected
to ensure an accurate BPM value. See
“Set Auto BPM” on page 23
Loop roll performs a standard autoloop, but when the loop is turned off,
the playback position is returned to the
position where it would be if it had not
entered the loop (much like censor).
The other difference between loop
roll and standard auto-loop is the ‘‘roll’’
button is momentary. The loop is engaged
when the button is pressed down, and
disengaged when the button is released.
Use short loop lengths to create “stutter”
type effects.
To activate loop roll, hold control + alt
while clicking on the desired autoloop
increment, or use the keyboard shortcuts:
control + alt + 1 through 5 for the Left
Deck and control + alt + 6 through 0 for
the Right Deck. (ie. the same as the autoloop controls with the additional ‘alt’ key
as a modifier).
The range of values available for loop
roll are 1/32 through to 32 beats. The
shortcut keys will activate whichever loop
lengths are visible on screen, i.e., if you
have lengths of a 1/4 beat through to 4
beats visible for the Left Deck, control +
alt + 1 will activate a 1/4 beat loop roll,
control + alt + 2 will activate a 1/8 beat
loop roll and so on.
Use the  and  buttons to toggle
through the range of possible lengths
visible onscreen.
TIP: When you have the “Autoloop
Select” knob assigned to MIDI, you
have all of the loop roll lengths at your
disposal. This allows you to roll up and
down the loop length scale, to create
interesting stutter and build-up effects.

SP-6 Sample
Player
The SP-6 Sample Player allows you to
play up to six sources of audio, in addition
to the tracks playing on the Virtual Decks.
Any audio file in your Scratch Live library
can be loaded to any one of the six slots,
allowing playback of short samples,
sound effects, or full length tracks.
The SP-6 is enabled when the SixtyEight is plugged in, but not operational in
the offline player mode.
Click on the SP-6 button to access the
sample player window.
In the top right corner of
the SP-6 there is a
button which opens the
Display Menu. Clicking
on this drops down a
menu with the list of
available controls:
• Mode: Chooses the play mode: Trigger
/ On-Off / Hold / Repeat modes.
• Output Select: Assigns individual slot
outputs to PGM 1, 2, 3, 4 or to the
master output.
• Pitch: Pitch Slider / Bend / Nudge /
Keylock controls.
• Play from: Choose which cue point /
loop to use for the loaded track.
• Overview: Displays the overview of
each track.
• Level: Individual sample slot level and
Gain controls.
• Level meter: Displays the volume level
for the sample slot.
This enables you to set up the sample
player with the appropriate controls that
suit your workflow.
Loading the SP-6
SP-6 Play Modes
To load a track to the SP-6, drag and drop
the desired file from your library into one
of the sample slots. To eject a track, click
the eject button to the right of the title
display.
Each sample slot has three different play
modes:
TIP: You can load tracks to the SP-6
with the keyboard shortcuts: ctrl + alt +
z to n.
TIP: Select and drag six tracks from
your library onto the first sample player
slot to simultaneously load six tracks
across all six slots.
Playing Samples
Pressing the play button on each
slot will play the loaded audio.
TIP: Use the shortcut keys
z (slot 1)
x (slot 2)
c (slot 3)
v (slot 4)
b (slot 5)
n (slot 6)
to trigger each sample respectively.
SP-6 Instant Doubles
You can instant double from the Virtual
Decks down to the SP-6, from the SP-6
up to the Virtual Decks and also between
the sample slots themselves. This means
the position, track gain and speed will
match when you drag a track to from one
location into another. This allows you to
beat match tracks with your turntables/
CD players on the Virtual Decks, and
then “instant double” the track down to
a slot, freeing up the Virtual Decks to
continue your mix with other tracks. Click
and drag an already playing track from
a Virtual Deck or sample slot and drop it
on another sample slot to begin instant
doubling.
Trigger mode - When play is
pressed, the audio plays through
until the end of the track. Pressing
repetitively will trigger the audio from the
beginning of the track. To stop the audio,
hold the alt key while either clicking the
play button, or pressing the corresponding
shortcut key (e.g., alt - z for slot one).
Hold Mode - The sample will only
play while you press and hold the
play button or the corresponding shortcut
key. Upon release of the play button, the
audio stops immediately. This mode most
closely resembles the function of the
“note off” mode found on many samplers.
On / Off Mode - When play is
pressed, the audio plays through
until the end of the track. Pressing play
again stops the audio.
Repeat Mode - Each slot has a
repeat button. When activated,
this will repeat the loaded audio file from
beginning to end, or will turn on the loop
selected in the “Play From” field.
TIP: Short “loop” samples can be
turned into a continuous track using
the repeat function. Ensure there is a
clean cut at the start and end of a bar.
TIP: If you don’t wish to use the SP-6,
you can disable it in the Plugins tab on
the Setup screen.

SP-6 Pitch Controls
SP-6 Track Overviews
There are
individual
Pitch
Slider,
Bend, Nudge, and Keylock controls
for each sample slot. The BPM is also
displayed next to the pitch slider. If no
BPM is present in the tracks ID3 tag,
the pitch of the track is displayed as a
percentage.
Click and drag the pitch slider to make
regular pitch adjustments. Hold the shift
key and move the pitch slider to make fine
pitch adjustments.
Click on the + and – buttons to nudge
the track into time. (temporary pitch
adjustment)
Hold the ctrl key and click the + and
– buttons to make ultra-fine pitch
adjustments to nudge the track, adjusting
the pitch permanently.
Displays an
overview of the
track loaded to each sample slot. The
waveform, play head position, cue points
and selected loops will all be visible.
SP-6 ‘Play From’ Selector
Use the
“Play From”
selector to choose where the track will
play from. You can choose to play a
track from the start of the file, any one of
the cue points, or any one of the loop in
points.
When this is set to play from start, or
play from a cue point, the track will play
right through until stopped. When a loop is
selected, the track will play until the loop
out point, unless you have “repeat” on, in
which case the track will loop using the in
and out points of the selected loop.
The number of options will be
dependent on the number of cue points
and loops already set in your track. i.e
if the track loaded has no cue points
and loops set, then only “start” will be
available as a “Play From” option.
TIP: To set or adjust cue and loop
information for a track, load it to a
Virtual Deck, make your adjustments,
then load it back into the sample slot.
32
SP-6 Slot Volumes
Each
individual
sample
slot has a
separate volume slider and gain control.
Volume Sliders - Use the volume slider to
mix and make temporary adjustments to
the volume of the sample you are playing.
These sliders act like your mixer’s,
fading from full volume right through to
completely silent.
Gain Knobs - In addition to the volume
slider there is an additional gain knob for
each slot. These allow you to fine tune
the maximum gain volume of the loaded
sample. The gain adjustment will also be
written to the track’s ID3 tag, meaning that
it will be the same everytime you load it.
SP-6 Output Selector
Use the master output
selector button to
choose where you wish
to have the SP-6 output to.
1

There is also a master sample
player Gain knob to adjust the
overall SP-6 volume.
Individual Output Selectors
By default
each sample
slot will be set to Master, mirroring the
SP-6 master output setting. You can use
the individual output selector buttons to
override the Master output setting.
To send an individual slot to a different
output from the Master, deselect the
master option by clicking on the MASTER
button for the corresponding slot.
This will unlink the sample slot from the
master sample player output selection,
allowing you to choose the 1, 2, 3 or 4
PGM output for each slot. These output
routings will be saved when you close
down Scratch Live, so the next time
you launch Scratch Live, your preferred
settings will remain the same.
SP-6 Sample Banks
The SP-6 has four separate
sample banks, labeled A, B,
C and D. To switch between
the different banks click on the A, B, C
or D buttons. Each bank will save the
individual sample and sample slot settings
you last used, allowing you to prepare
banks for easy recall at a later stage.
Sample Bank A will load as the default.
SP-6 Mute Buttons
Use the mute buttons to mute the
audio output for each of the SP-6’s
sample slots. Click the mute button to
silence the audio output, click the mute
button again to turn the audio back on.
You can also ctrl-click on the mute
buttons to mute the outputs momentarily,
meaning that the audio will only be muted
for as long as you hold your mouse click.
TIP: You can MIDI assign these buttons,
allowing you to create a virtual kill
switch for the sample slot. To MIDI
assign momentary mute, hold ctrl and
click on the mute button before tapping
your MIDI controller.
SP-6 MIDI
All features of the SP-6 are MIDI
assignable. The SP-6 window must be
opened first before enabling MIDI assign
mode. See “MIDI Control” on page
34.

Super Knob Mode
DJ-FX Plugin
The DJ-FX Plugin gives you control of
two FX units, each with three chained
effects slots per unit. Each FX unit has
two control modes: Ultra Knob Mode and
Super Knob Mode, both of which can be
fully customized. The DJ-FX plugin opens
in Ultra Knob Mode by default.
The DJ-FX Plugin must be enabled in
the Plugins tab in the setup screen. Once
enabled, the DJ-FX panel button appears
in the panels area on the main screen.
See “Enable DJ-FX” on page 47.
To enable post-fader DJ-FX with the

NOTE: The DJ-FX plugin is not visible
if your Rane hardware is not connected.
Ultra Knob Mode
Click the Ultra Knob Mode button
to select Ultra Knob Mode. This
allows you to control up to three effects
slots in one FX unit using the one Ultra
Knob.
Click on the drop down menu to load an
Ultra Knob effect. (This is “empty” before
settings are saved in Macro Edit Mode.)
Click the ON button to enable the effect,
and use the Ultra Knob to control the wet
and dry amount of all effects.
Super Knob Mode allows you
individual control of each effect
in the FX unit. Each effect slot has a Super
Knob which controls the wet and dry
amount for the effect.
Click the Effects drop down box to
select an effect for the effect slot. You can
leave a slot empty by selecting “empty.”
Click the ON button by the Super Knob
to toggle turning the effect(s) on and off.
The effects chain works in series going
from effects slots 1 to 3, meaning that the
effected audio from slot 1 passes through
slot 2, and is then passed through slot 3.
Effects BPM Multiplier
The Effects BPM
Multiplier is used to
adjust the effect time. The effect time is
set using the track’s BPM value, but by
applying the Effects BPM Multiplier you
can increase or decrease the effect time.
Deck Assign
You can select which Deck the FX unit
applies to by clicking the Deck buttons.
Each Deck can only pass through one FX
unit at a time.
Show Parameters
Press the Show Parameters button
to expose the individual parameters
for each effect. You can then control
the individual parameters by adjusting
their respective knobs.
In Ultra Knob Mode, use this to select
which effects are loaded and controlled by
the Ultra Knob.
In Ultra and Super Knob Mode, link or
unlink a parameter to the Super Knob by
pressing the Link Button, allowing one
master control of some parameters and
individual control of others.
while Show Parameters is open. Once

MIDI Control
The MIDI Control feature in Scratch Live
provides the ability to map MIDI controls
to Scratch Live controls, and thus control
the functions of Scratch Live using MIDI
controllers such as keyboards, triggers,
sliders, and knobs. Integrating MIDI
controllers into your Scratch Live setup
can improve live performance usability,
such as hitting pads on a MIDI controller
to trigger loops and cue points.
MIDI Controller Setup
The process of setting up a MIDI
controller for use with Scratch Live
will vary depending on the hardware in
question. Many devices can connect to
a computer using MIDI over USB, and
will either be supported directly by your
operating system, or require installation of
drivers and configuration utility software.
Follow the manufacturers instructions for
installation.
Other controllers may solely use a MIDI
out connector to send control messages,
and will require a separate MIDI interface
unit to communicate to software.
Generally the MIDI interface will come with
drivers and configuration tools which pass
your controller’s output onto an available
MIDI channel, which can be used by
Scratch Live.
Once your controller is installed and
functioning correctly, use these directions
for assigning controls.
34
Assigning Controls
Assigning MIDI to Other Controls
To enable MIDI assign mode,
click the MIDI button. Hovering
the mouse pointer over a control will bring
up the MIDI assignment box, showing the
current assignment status.
To assign a MIDI control, click on the
control in Scratch Live, then move the
MIDI control. The MIDI assignment box
should update to show it has mapped the
controls to one-another.
To un-assign a MIDI control, click on the
control in Scratch Live, and press return
on your computer keyboard.
While in MIDI assign mode, controls
which have MIDI inputs assigned show a
green box indicator around them.
Controls which
are not normally
visible are available for assignment when
in MIDI assign mode by clicking on the
Show MIDI Panel button. This will open
up a panel allowing MIDI assignment for
controls including library navigation as
well as additional Deck functions such as
fine pitch control and extended cue and
looping features.
NOTE: Once in MIDI assign mode,
Scratch Live controls will no longer
respond directly to the mouse. If you
need to change a control using the
mouse, disable MIDI assign mode.
MIDI Output Lighting
Any mappable
software
feature with
an ON /
OFF state
(rather than
momentary
or toggle)
has a lighting
option. The light on the MIDI controller will
stay ON when the function is ON rather
just lighting up when it is touched on
the MIDI controller. You can disable it by
pressing “L” whilst mapping. There is an
“Enable MIDI Output Lighting” checkbox
for global default in the MIDI Presets panel
of the Setup screen.
MIDI Platters
Ctrl-Click Functionality
Some Scratch Live controls on the GUI
have additional functionality assigned
to ctrl-click. You can assign ctrl-click
functionality to a MIDI control, alongside
the normal functionality. For example, ctrlclick on the INT mode pitch slider returns
pitch to zero. To assign this to MIDI
control, enter MIDI assign mode, ctrl-click
on the slider, and then assign one of the
pads to it. When you press the pad, pitch
goes to 0.
Presets
MIDI presets are accessible in the MIDI
panel of the Setup screen. By default,
the current MIDI assignments in Scratch
Live are automatically remembered and
loaded next time you start the program.
The preset panel allows you to save and
recall several different MIDI setups. This
is useful if you are using several MIDI
devices or want to quickly switch MIDI
setups without having to reassign all your
controls.
The Scratch Live Virtual Decks are not
user assignable to MIDI control. MIDI
devices with platters on them all send
different data so user mapping is not
possible. To control the platter use a
natively supported controller.
RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0

MIDI Devices
Any connected MIDI device will be listed
within the MIDI Device List in the MIDI
panel of the Setup screen. You are able
to enable or disable any of these devices
using the “Enable MIDI Device” checkbox.
Technical Information
Scratch Live MIDI Control only supports:
• Note On/Off
• Standard 7-bit CC (Control Change)

Note: See “MIDI Mapping” on page
17.
Organizing
Your Music
TIP: Check the ‘Protect library’ option
in the Library tab of the Setup screen to
prevent changes to your crates. If you
do delete a crate by accident, you can
get it back from the recycle bin / trash.
Crate files have the extension .crate.
Subcrates
Scratch Live can support an unlimited
number of tracks – the only limitation
is the size of the hard drive of your
computer. A number of features are
included to help you to keep your music
organized and find songs quickly and
easily.
Grouping Tracks into Crates
Scratch Live supports several ways of
organizing and sorting your file library.
iTunes users will notice that Scratch Live
can incorporate your existing iTunes
library and playlists.
Scratch Live uses digital “crates” for
quick access to your favorite collections.
There is no limit to the number of crates
you can create, and any given track can
be placed in multiple crates. For example,
you could organize your files into the
following crates, where any one track
would be filed in more than one crate:
• Hip Hop
• UK Hip Hop
• French Hip Hop
• Inst Hip Hop
• Old Hip Hop
• Hip Hop LPs
To make a new
crate, click the Add New Crate button in
the bottom left corner of the main screen
(brown crate icon). To rename a
crate, double click the crate name.
You can change the order of tracks
within a crate by sorting by the “#” column
and dragging them up or down.
You can drag and drop crates into other
crates to make subcrates. If you drag a
crate to the very left of the crate panel,
it will stay in the top level of the crate
structure. If you drag the crate a little to
the right, onto the name of another crate,
it will make the crate you are dragging a
sub crate of the first crate.
Smart Crates
Smart crates update their contents by
using keywords which are matched
with selected tags of your music library
tracks. Smart crates can be updated
automatically or at your discretion.
To create a smart crate, click the Add
Smart Crate button in the bottom left
corner of the main screen
(blue
crate icon). A popup window will open
which allows you to add the rules to fill
your smart crate. Press Add Rule to add a
rule for the smart crate to match with. For
each rule you can choose a field to match
on from the drop down menu:
• Added (date)
• Album
• Artist
• BPM
• Comment
• Composer
• Filename
• Genre
• Grouping
• Key
• Label
• Remixer
• Song
• Whitelabel
• Year
You can then choose the following
inclusion /exclusion criteria:
• Contains
• Is
• Does not contain
• Is not

Check the Match all of the following
Rules option so that tracks must match
all the set rules to be added to the crate.
If this option is not checked, any track
which matches any of the rules will be
added to the crate.
Check the Live update option to have
the smart crate update when any tags are
edited in your music library. With this
option unchecked, the crate contents will
be updated only when you click the
refresh crate icon, which is not visible
when Live
update is
checked.
Click Save to save your crate or Cancel
to exit without saving.
Click the Edit button (next to the Add

header will sort your library alphabetically
by album title. To move a column, drag
the header to the left or right. To resize
a column, click on the column boundary
and drag it to the left or right.
Sorting Your Files
Scratch Live includes
a search function to
help you find files
quickly and easily.
Enter text into the
search box and
Scratch Live will
automatically find as
you type. To select
which fields the
search function will
look through, click on
the left hand side of the search box. The
drop down menu shows which fields are
currently being used. Press esc or the x
button on the right of the search box to
clear the search.
The track information display area can be
customized to display the columns listed
below:
• Added
• Album
• Artist
• Bitrate
• BPM
• Comment
• Composer
• Filename
• Genre
• Grouping
• Key
• Label
• Length
• Location
• Remixer
• Sampling
• Size
• Track
• Video Track
• Year
The song browser allows you to filter
your song list by Genre, BPM, Artist and
Album. To turn the song browser on or off,
click the Browse button.
Searching
TIP: Use the keyboard shortcut
‘ctrl-f’ to jump to the search box. This
keyboard shortcut will also take you out
of any crate or playlist that you might
be in and into your main library, so you
can find any track in your collection. If
you then click on a crate or playlist, the
search query will be cleared.
The column button  is located at the
top of the library pane in the right hand
corner. Click on the column button to
select which columns you want to display.
To sort your library by a column, click

Using the Song Browser
Prepare Window
The Prepare window is a holding area for
tracks, much like preparing a set by lifting
records part way out of your record bag.
You can drag tracks (or whole crates)
from the main track list into the Prepare
window, or simply drag them onto the
Prepare button. These tracks will be
removed from the Prepare window once
they have been played. All tracks in the
Prepare window will be discarded when
you exit Scratch Live.
TIP: Use the keyboard shortcut ctrl-p to
add tracks to the Prepare window.
TIP: Select the contents of the Prepare
window and drag them onto the new
crate button (+) to save your selection
as a crate.
History
The History button opens a
complete log of all the tracks
you have played and allows exporting
Scratch Live session information as a data
file.
Each session is catalogued by date
and time. Using the drop down arrow,
you can navigate to and view detailed
information of any previous sessions.
There are columns for the period (i.e.,
date of session), name of track and artist
name. In addition, these other categories
listed below will give you more detailed
information about your sessions:
Start Time: When viewing a song row, the
start time of the song is displayed. When
viewing a session row, the start time of the
session is displayed with the date (in real
time value).
End Time: When viewing a song row, the
end time of the song is displayed. When
viewing a session row, the end time of the
session is displayed with the date (in real
time value).
RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0
Playtime: When viewing a song row, the
total played time of the song is displayed
(i.e., 00:03:00). When viewing a session
row, the total elapsed time of the session
is displayed with date (i.e., 10/09/08
01:38:16).
Deck: The Virtual Deck that the song was
played on will be displayed under the
deck column. In the song row, either left
or right is displayed. The offline player will
be listed as offline.
Notes: Use this field to list particular
information about your songs and each
session (i.e., note how you transitioned
from one track to another).
Start Session / End Session:
To start or end a session, click
the corresponding button.
Insert Track: If you wish to add
information for tracks not played in
Scratch Live into your session (e.g., if you
played one of your favorite vinyl or CDs),
select the song you want to insert after
and click the Insert Track button. Double
click the inserted track fields and edit your
information accordingly. When exporting
an m3u playlist [see exporting below]
“Inserted Tracks” will not be present.
Export: You can export each session as a
data file using the Export button. Select
a session, then choose your preferred file
Format, and click Export. There are three
possible export formats:
• text: to create a simple text file with your
session information contained within.
• csv: to create a file for use in
spreadsheet software.
• m3u: to create a playlist file, which can
be imported into media players. Note
that an m3u does not contain audio
itself, it only points to the location of
your audio files. (Inserted tracks within
sessions will not be included in an m3u
playlist.)
• Serato Playlists: see “Serato Playlists”
on page 37.
Delete: To delete a history session,
highlight the session, then press ctrl + del.
TIP: To make a new Scratch Live crate
containing your session information,
select a session and drag it to the
+ new crate icon. The crate will
automatically use the session date as
the crate name.
Listing Behavior - only the tracks you
actually play are listed in history. This is
done using an A-B algorithm, meaning
a track on Deck A is only listed once the
track on Deck B has been changed or
ejected.
You can choose to show tracks which
you have auditioned, but not actually
played, by checking the Show unplayed
tracks box. The session will then also
list these tracks in grey, along with actual
played tracks.
Alternatively, you can mark or unmark
tracks as played manually. Select a track
(or a group of tracks) and click the Mark
as played or Mark as unplayed button.
This may be useful if you play a track off
regular vinyl or CD — breaking the A-B
algorithm).
Songs that you have played are marked
as green in your library. Click on the
button marked Clear to reset the list of
recently played tracks and turn the color
of your library back to white.

Editing ID3 tags
Adding Album Art
Much of the information associated
with each file can be edited from within
Scratch Live. Double click on the
attribute within the main library to edit
the attribute. Filename, length, size, bit
rate and sampling cannot be edited. This
information is saved in the file itself. Note
that the protect library option in setup
must be unchecked to allow edits. for
details on auto-BPM See “Preparing
Your Files” on page 22.
You can add album art to a file by
dragging and dropping a jpeg or png file
onto the track in any of the album art
views, or onto the Album Art window. If
you do this while the track is loaded to a
Virtual Deck, the album artwork will not be
added until the track is ejected.
TIP: Use the keyboard shortcut ctrl-e
to edit text. Hold down the ctrl key and
move with the arrow keys to change
to a different field while staying in edit
mode. When you have more than one
file selected, editing tags changes all
the files in your selection.

Status Icons
The leftmost column shows the status of
each track. The image to the left shows
five tracks with differing statuses.
• Scratch Live has detected some
corruption in the MP3 file. If
possible, re-encode the MP3.
• The track has been imported
from the iTunes library.
• The track has been imported
from the iTunes library, and
Scratch Live has detected some
corruption in the MP3 file. Solution: If
possible, re-encode the MP3.
• The track cannot be found. Most
likely the file has been renamed
or moved.
• Tracks that are read-only have a
locked icon.
More Info on Corrupt Files
If you have a corrupt file in your library,
hover your mouse over the status
icon for information on what type of
corruption was found. See “Corrupt File
Descriptions and Diagnoses” on page
49.
RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0
File
Management
Located in the files pane are two buttons,
rescan ID3 tags and relocate lost files.
Use these tools for ongoing file and library
management.
Rescan ID3 Tags
Click this button to force Scratch Live to
re-read all file tags. Alternatively, you can
drag and drop files, folders, or drives onto
the rescan id3 tags button from the files
pane. This will only scan the files that you
drag and drop, resulting in much faster
processing.
TIP: Rescanning the tags is a handy
way to identify all the files that Scratch
Live can’t find (for example if the files
have been altered or moved). These
tracks will show up red in the main
track list, with an exclamation mark in
the status column. You can sort by the
status column to group all these tracks
together.
Relocate Lost Files
This feature finds music and folders on
your computer that you have either moved
or altered.
1. Click the Relocate Lost Files button
to search all your drives (internal and
external) for files currently marked as not
found in your library.
2. When this process is complete, your
Scratch Live library will be updated with
the new location of your files.
TIP: Drag and drop files, folders, or
drives onto the Relocate Lost Files
button from the Files pane. This is
useful if you know the location of your
files, as it only scans the drag and drop
location, with faster relocation.
location. Your Scratch Live library will now
contain entries for both the originals and
copies.
Deleting Crates and Tracks
Move: Select this to move the selected
files and/or folders to the new location.
Your Scratch Live library and crates
will now reference the files in their new
location.
To delete tracks from your Scratch Live
library, select the track and use the
keyboard shortcut ctrl-delete. Make
sure you have the Protect library option
unchecked in the Library tab of the Setup
screen.
• Deleting a track when you are in the
“ All...” playlist removes it from your
library and any crates that the track may
be in.
• Deleting a track inside a crate removes it
from that crate but the file will remain in
your “ All...” playlist.
• Deleting a track from a subcrate will
remove it from the subcrate and the
main crate but not the “ All...” playlist.
• Crates that are deleted are sent to the
recycle bin/trash.
NOTE: To delete any files from your
library and your hard drive (sending
them to the recycle bin) use the
shortcut ctrl-shift-delete.
If you are using iTunes playlists, your files
cannot be deleted this way. You will need
to delete them from within iTunes.
Copy & Move Files & Folders
Scratch Live gives you the ability to
copy and move files, folders and crates
between drives or to a new location on the
same drive.
To copy or move your files and/or
folders, open the Files panel and select,
drag and drop them in the desired new
location. Scratch Live will then prompt
you with the following options:
Copy: Select this to make a copy of
the selected files and folders in the new
Cancel: Cancel any changes.
Remove original references from
library: Check this option when using
the copy feature to remove the original
references to these files in your Scratch
Live library and replace them with the
copies in the new location. The original
files will still be kept in their current
location, but will no longer referenced in
your Scratch Live library.
Copy & Move Crates
You can also copy or move your Crates
and Subcrates to another drive in the
same way. Open the Files panel and
select, drag and drop your Crates or
Subcrates to the new drive. You will be
presented with the same options as
mentioned above. To move between
drives, read the Scratch Live Support
Articles at serato.com.
Scratch Live Backup
Scratch Live stores your library database
and crates information in the Scratch Live
folder on your hard disk. This folder is
created on a drive when files are added
to Scratch Live. A copy of each Scratch
Live folder called ScratchLiveBackup is
created next to the folder it is backing up.
This folder is created when exiting Scratch
Live. You will be prompted to backup your
Scratch Live library on exit if there is no
backup for a drive or if the last backup is
more than one week old.
Backup will only keep ONE level backup
at a time; each time backup runs, it
overwrites the previous backup.
NOTE: Make sure you back up your
music separately. This backup function
only backs up the Scratch Live folder,
not your music files.

Recording
Recordings can be loaded onto the
Decks, renamed, and managed like other
files. Recordings are saved as 24-bit, 48
kHz stereo AIFF files by default.
Recordings are saved in “My
Documents\My Music\_Serato_\
Recording” in Windows XP, “Libraries\
Music\_Serato_\Recording” in Windows 7,
and “~/Music/_Serato_/Recording Temp”
on a Mac.
Record Gain Knob
Scratch Live allows you to record one of
eight stereo signals from the Sixty-Eight:
• 1 pre-fader
• 2 pre-fader
• 3 pre-fader
• 4 pre-fader
• USB 5 Insert
• Mic 1
• Main Mix
• Mic 2
Adjust the record level using this Gain
knob. The meter reveals the level of your
audio. Ideally the meter should sit just
below the red, meaning your signal is as
loud as it can be without clipping.
1. Select the RECORD button at the left
of the screen to open the Record controls.
NOTE: If you turn the record Gain
knob down and the red clip led is still
illuminated, the signal is clipping the
input of the Sixty-Eight. If possible, turn
down the level at your audio source
before it reaches the Sixty-Eight.
2. Choose the Input Source by clicking
on the downward arrow (icon) to get the
drop menu.
TIPS
• The keyboard shortcut ctrl-n turns
recording on and off.
3. Click the red record icon to start
recording.
• Load a recording without saving it using
the shortcut keys shift left arrow to the
Left Deck or shift right arrow to the Right
Deck.
Stereo recording is possible even while
using two stereo vinyl control inputs.
4. The record icon flashes while recording
and the display shows the elapsed
recording time.
5. Click the flashing record icon again to
stop the recording.
Sampling From Vinyl
You can use the Sixty-Eight to sample
from vinyl or any other sound source.
Click the  triangle next to the record
button to select the pre-fader signal your
source is connected to.
TIP: Remember that ctrl-n turns
recording on and off, and you can load
a recording without saving it using shift
+ left arrow or shift + right arrow. Drop
the needle into a loud part of the track,
record a few seconds, and then shift
+ left arrow or shift + right arrow to
load it on to the Virtual Deck. This way
you can double-check your levels and
adjust with the Gain control.
NOTE: Recording files are automatically
split when the recording exceeds 3
hours (16-bit) or 1 hour 50 minutes (24bit). See “Recording Bit Depth” on page
44.
6. To save the recording, type in a name
for the recording and click the save icon.
7. The recording is automatically placed
in a crate named “RECORDED”. If the
crate does not already exist, it will be
created automatically.
8. To start a new recording without saving,
simply click the record button again.

RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0
Using LiveFeed
LiveFeed
LiveFeed allows you to stream a USB
record channel from the Sixty-Eight to a
Virtual Deck. This includes any Phono/
Line/S/PDIF input, either Mic, FlexFx
Insert or the Mix. You can then instantly
play the recording back just like a normal
audio file — you can scratch it, speed it
up, slow it down, set loops and set cue
points.
There are two recording options,
Normal and Gated. The Normal option
means recording will begin as soon as
the normal Livefeed track is loaded to the
Virtual Deck. The Gated option means that
after a Gated Livefeed track is loaded,
recording only begins once the set gate
level is exceeded (thus avoiding periods
of silence). You can set the gate level
by clicking the dropdown menu in the
LiveFeed filename. A lower gain setting
makes the gate more sensitive.
The amount of time available to record
is determined by your audio cache setting.
The track overview display shows the
amount of usable audio you have to play
with from the recording. Click anywhere
in the track overview display to jump to
your desired position in the recording. See
“Audio Cache” on page 47.
1. Locate the LiveFeed files in your library.
Type “livefeed” into the search box and
you will see:
2. Decide which source you want to
LiveFeed.
a. To feed from a phono or CD (preselector input), drag its corresponding
LiveFeed USB Channel Input 1, 2, 3 or 4
onto any Deck.
b. To feed a pre-selector input, the insert,
either mic or the mix, first select it from
the Input Source drop-down in the
Record window.
3. Load the desired LiveFeed file to
either Deck. The waveforms will start
to build in the track overview and
main waveform display as the input
is recorded, you can now use the
recording as normal. Performing a
needle drop on the record brings the
playhead back to the “now” position in
the audio stream.
Mixing
With One
Turntable Or
CD Player
This single turntable technique allows you
to mix as if you had two turntables, using
just one. If one of your turntables is not
performing properly, or if you only have
one available, you will be able to continue
to mix the way you are used to.
The following is a step-by-step
description of how to perform a mix using
only your right turntable or CDJ with the
instant doubles feature.
Menu Settings
Go to the Setup menu, click on the
Playback tab. Make sure Instant doubles
is checked, and Lock playing deck is
unchecked.
1. Load a track onto the Right Deck in
Scratch Live and play as usual.
2. Put the Left Deck into INT mode.
3. Load the same song you have playing
on the Right Deck onto the Left Deck.
The track on the Left Deck will start
playing from the same point and at the
same pitch as the Right Deck.
4. You can now quickly slide your mixer’s
crossfader over to the Left Deck.
5. Your Right Deck is now free to load up
a new song ready to mix in.
6. Repeat!
TIP: Instant doubles works with either
Deck.
See “Lock Playing Deck” on page 44.
See “Instant Doubles” on page 45.

DJ Handover
Swapping between two DJs both using
Scratch Live is now easier than ever! With
a computer already connected to the
Sixty-Eight and playing, do the following:
Two
Computer
Connection
1. Connect the second computer to the
unused USB port on the Sixty-Eight.
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 for 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. For any Virtual Decks on
either computer that aren’t to be used, set
the USB Source to None.
3. Play a track on this Deck and mix it in
when ready — you’ll now have audio
from both computers in the mix.
2a. Using Four Control Sources: Select
a USB Source for a Virtual Deck that
is not already being used on the first
computer. If the first DJ is using all four
USB sources, you will need to politely
ask them to free up at least one channel
for you to take over. See “USB Sources
& Analog Inputs” on page 24.
4. Fade out the audio playing from the first
computer to the audio playing from the
second computer.
5. When only audio from the second
computer is left in the mix, remove the
first computer.
6. Assign USB sources for the remaining
Virtual Decks on the second computer
and continue DJing.
NOTE: If you can’t select a particular
USB source for a Deck, make sure it is
not already set on another computer
or Virtual Deck. Each USB Source
can only be set to one virtual deck on
one computer at a time. When two
computers are connected, you can use
up to 4 USB sources in total.
Press the Control Point button on the
Sixty-Eight to select which computer is
controlled by the Sixty-Eight’s control
Strips.
• Computer A = orange.
• Computer B = green.
2b. Using Two Control Sources:
Unassign the USB Source for the nonplaying Virtual Deck on Computer A.
Then have Computer B assign that same
USB Source to one of its Virtual Decks.
See “USB Sources & Analog Inputs”
on page 24.

Setup
Headphone Tone
This section covers general preferences
and adjustments you can make to improve
the performance of Scratch Live. From the
top of the main screen, click on SETUP to
get to this area.
Hardware
These controls adjust the Low and High
tone controls to the headphone outputs.
Flashing Deck Indicator
Displays a flashing white border around
the Virtual Decks which currently have
keyboard and control strip focus.
Button Backlight
Backlights the buttons on the Sixty-Eight
for easy visibility.
Select Primary Decks
Select a combination of which two Decks
to set as the Primary Decks.
USB Buffer Size (Latency)
Scratch Live processes audio in small
chunks. When smaller chunks are
used, the movement of the record is
translated into audio more often, which
results in a lower overall system latency.
However, this requires more processing
and therefore a higher CPU load, so
lower buffer size settings require a
more powerful computer to produce
uninterrupted audio. If you want tighter
control, try decreasing this setting. On
the other hand, if you experience audio
dropouts, you need to increase this
setting (or use a more powerful computer).
This control adjusts the contrast of the
LCD display in the FlexFX section on the
Sixty-Eight.
Recording Bit Depth
Choose to record in either 16-Bit (CD
quality, smaller file size) or 24-Bit (high
quality, larger file size). See ”Recording”
on page 40.
Track End Warning
Enable this option to flash the Virtual Deck
as you approach the end of the track.
The label will start flashing 20 seconds
from the end of the record. The Track
end warning does not apply to any tracks
under 1 minute long.
Playback Keys Use Shift
When this option is checked you must
have the shift key pressed for the
playback keys to trigger. This applies to all
keyboard shortcuts, including cue points,
INT mode shortcuts, and the sample
player shortcuts.
TIP: You can also turn on Caps Lock
instead of using Shift.
Lock Playing Deck
Every DJ’s nightmare used to be lifting
the needle off the wrong turntable in the
middle of a set. This setting helps to avoid
the digital equivalent; loading a new track
to the wrong Deck. When this option is
checked, you can only load a track if the
target Deck is stopped.
Sort Cues Chronologically
The five cue points can be placed in any
order, and can be dragged up and down if
you wish to reorder them. If you prefer to
lock them to chronological order, turn this
option on.
Enable Hot Cues
Updating Firmware
If a firmware update is available after
installing a new Scratch Live software
release, an Update Firmware button
appears in the Hardware screen. The
firmware upgrade takes a moment, during
which the Sixty-Eight will not be usable.

RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0
Use Auto Gain
Play From Start
Auto gain enables you to set a uniform
volume level for the tracks in your library.
When a track is in auto gain mode, the
track gain knob appears recessed.
Check this box to enable auto gain.
Provided you have analyzed your files,
your tracks will now be loaded with the
auto gain applied.
Next to this box is a drop down menu,
in which you set the target gain volume
level.
To find the optimum setting, load a track
with an average volume level onto one of
the Virtual Decks. Now play the track, and
take note of the volume and LED lights
inside the software.
The idea is for the track volume to
be sitting just under the clipping point
(indicated by the LED meter red-lining). If
the track is too quiet, unload it, then go to
the Playback setup screen and boost the
auto gain dB value more.
Once you’ve made this adjustment,
load the same track onto the Virtual Deck
again. You’ll notice that the volume knob
has automatically adjusted itself.
Keep making adjustments on the same
track until it’s just below the clipping
point. Once this is set you won’t need to
adjust the target gain level ever again.
Because the track you used had an
average volume level, most of the other
tracks in your library should be around the
same volume. You may still need to make
minor adjustments to some individual
tracks, but once that’s done these will
stay saved in the ID3 tag of the file.
Enable this to start all tracks from the
beginning when loaded in REL and INT
modes. If this setting is not enabled,
freshly loaded tracks will continue to play
from the point the last track was at. This
option is on by default.
TIP: Slightly too quiet is always better
than too loud. If your LED meter is in
the red, it is likely that it is clipping. Not
only does clipping not sound very nice,
it can damage your equipment.
Hi-Fi Resampler
This significantly reduces digital distortion
at very slow or very fast record speeds,
increasing the CPU load slightly. This
option is off by default, the old resampler
is used when switched off.
Vinyl Control
Instant Doubles
This option allows you to quickly match
the playhead position of two tracks.
With this option enabled, when you load
the same file on one Virtual Deck that is
already loaded on the other Virtual Deck,
the playhead will jump to the position of
the track that was loaded first, with the
keylock state and looping settings copied.
This setting overrides the Play from start
and Play from first cue point options.
Play From First Cue Point
Enable this option to start all tracks from
the first cue point when loaded in REL and
INT modes. This setting overrides the Play
from start option.
Braking
(Internal Mode)
In INT mode, this controls how fast
the deck stops when play is stopped.
Counter-clockwise, the stop is immediate.
Clockwise rotation increases the stop
from a finger grab all the way to a slow
turntable power-down.
Audio Output
By default the output of Scratch Live is
stereo. You can also select mono output.
This setting is saved when you exit
Scratch Live.
Adjust Loops with Vinyl
Loop end points can be adjusted using
the control vinyl. Disable this option if you
wish to use the computer’s arrow keys to
adjust loops, and keep audio playback
controlled by the vinyl. See “Looping” on
page 29.
Next Song On Flip
When this option is enabled, changing the
side of control vinyl you’re using (‘flipping
the record’) loads the next song.
Enable Vinyl Scroll
Uncheck this box to disable the Vinyl
Scroll feature. See “Vinyl Scroll” on page
23.
Reverse Vinyl Scroll
This setting allows you to reverse the
direction of Vinyl Scroll. SEE “Vinyl
Scroll” on page 23.
Vinyl Scroll Speed
Vinyl Scroll allows you to load a new track
without touching the computer, by lifting
the needle and placing it in the special
section of side A of the control record.
This setting allows you to adjust the
sensitivity of Vinyl Scroll, so that you can
control the amount of record movement
required to move between tracks.
Drop To Absolute Position
(Relative Mode)
This detects a deliberate repositioning of
the needle, and moves the playhead to
the needle’s absolute position, as if it were
in ABS mode. Accidental skipping of the
needle does not reposition the playhead.
(REL mode only)
RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0

Library
Drop To Cue Points
(Relative Mode)
This option triggers the corresponding cue
point when the needle is repositioned into
one of the first five one-minute sections
on the control vinyl. For instance: needle
dropping into the second minute on the
left turntable will send playback for Deck 1
to cuepoint 2, if that cuepoint is set.
(REL mode only)
Vinyl Start Offset
If there is cue burn at the beginning of the
vinyl, you will notice that the tracking will
be poor at this point. Use the two knobs
to offset the start point, so that the track
will start playing from a point further into
the control record. The first knob sets the
number of whole minutes to offset by, the
second knob sets the number of whole
rotations within that minute.
Uncheck this option to remove files and
crates from your library. Check this option
to lock your library and prevent accidental
file or crate deletion while using Scratch
Live. Enabling this option will also lock all
file tags and crate names, so that no text
can be changed.
Read iTunes Library
Customize Crate Views
Check this option to show your iTunes
library and playlists in Scratch Live. You
can collapse your iTunes playlists
by clicking on the blue folder icon.
Uncheck this option to remove
iTunes playlists and iTunes songs from
your Scratch Live library.
To add your iTunes music to your
Scratch Live library permanently, drag and
drop tracks from the iTunes playlists onto
the “ All...” icon (on the far left hand
side of the Scratch Live screen), or into
individual Scratch Live crates.
Any files moved to “ All...,” an existing
crate, or a new crate will now remain in
Scratch Live even when the Read iTunes
library option is unchecked. Once a file
has been permanently added to Scratch
Live, the iTunes logo will disappear.
We recommend unchecking this option
after you have added your music into the
Scratch Live library.
Check this option to set custom column
views for each crate and playlist. When
the option is off (default), all crates will
share the same column
configuration as the “ All...” crate.
NOTES:
• If your iTunes library contains a large
number of tracks it may take some time
for Scratch Live to read it.
• Any changes made in Scratch Live to
the file information of tracks in your
iTunes library will not appear in iTunes
until after you play the track.
• Scratch Live cannot play files that
have been protected by Digital Rights
Management systems, such as those
previously sold through the Apple iTunes
Music Store. iTunes Plus files are DRMfree.
• iTunes is available for Mac and PC. To

Troubleshooting and FAQ
(Frequently Asked Questions)
The audio playback is dropping out /
clicking / popping
Scratch Live is not getting a clear signal
from the record, or your computer is not
able to process quickly enough. Go to
the Setup screen and check the scope
views. When the record is playing, the
circles should be round, and the value in
the bottom right corner should be close to
100%. If this is not the case, you need to
calibrate. See “Calibrating Scratch Live”
on page 20.
Also try increasing the USB Buffer Size
in Hardware Setup if your computer is
close to the minimum spec.
Clean your needles! This is the most
common cause of audio drop-out.
Because you are playing the same record
over and over, the needles will get dirty
more quickly than usual.
The threshold goes to the far right
when I click the estimate button
Make sure the needle is on the record
and the record is stopped when you click
estimate. If the slider goes hard right
and stays there, you most likely have an
grounding problem with your turntables/
mixer. If you cannot eliminate this
problem, use REL mode instead of ABS
mode.
Scratch Live makes a strange digital
noise, even when no track is playing
Scratch Live is interpreting background
noise as record movement. Go to the
Setup screen and move the threshold
slider (located left of the Estimate button)
to the right until the noise stops. See
“Calibrating Scratch Live” on page
20.
The tracks are playing backwards!
The inputs (from the turntables or CD
players) are the wrong way around. Try
swapping red and white wires at one end.
48
I can’t get the Scope View to show nice
clean circles
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. You may also order
these in the online store at www.rane.com
if you are in the USA.
The first time I play a new track, it
takes a while to load
Scratch Live has to read the entire file and
create a file index (overview) the first time
it is loaded. This may take a few seconds
for longer files. After the first load, it
should load instantly. See “Preparing
Your Files” on page 22.
I have a particular MP3 that won’t play /
plays badly / takes a long time to load /
crashes the program.
The file may be damaged, and may need
to be deleted from your library. Please go
to the forum at serato.com and notify the
support team that you have a bad file. By
reporting damaged or corrupt files, you
help the developers to improve Scratch
Live’s ability to play damaged MP3 files in
the future.
Scratch Live freaks out when I use the
master tempo (key correction) function
on my CD player
Scratch Live interprets the signal coming
out of the CD player, and uses this
information to control the playback 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. Use key
correction within Scratch Live instead.
See “Key Lock” on page 25.
I want to backup my library and crates
or move them to another machine, so
where are they stored?
Your database and crates are stored in
the folder Home\Music\_Serato_ on a
Mac, and My Documents\My Music\_
Serato_ in Windows XP, and Libraries\
Music\_Serato_ in Windows 7. If your
library contains tracks that are stored on
a drive other than your boot drive, a folder
called _Serato_ will be created in the root
of that drive, and a separate database will
be made in this folder. If it is a removable
drive, the tracks will only appear in your
library when the drive is connected. See
“Scratch Live Backup” on page 39.
I have pink files which don’t play
These are files which Scratch Live thinks
are missing. You can use the Relocate
Lost Files feature in the Offline player to
re-associate these with their new location.
To do this you can either: drag the file
itself from Finder/Windows explorer onto
the button to relocate an individual file,
drag an entire folder onto this button,
or press the button (this will search all
connected drives for all the missing files in
your library).
I have cue burn at the beginning of my
control record, does that mean I need
to replace it?
No, use the Vinyl Start Offset function (in
the Vinyl Control tab of the Setup screen)
to move the point at which tracks begin to
a position further into the vinyl. See “Vinyl
Start Offset” on page 46.
What are the best cartridges to use
with Scratch Live?
We recommend the Ortofon | Serato
S-120 cartridges for use with Scratch
Live. These employ revolutionary new
cantilever suspension, which delivers high
output volume, unrivaled tracking ability
and low record wear.

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 structure is incorrect.
This file has caused the QuickTime metadata manager to fail.
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 thrid party
editing program. Rebuilding 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 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 this file, Scratch Live found frames belonging to multiple MPEG layers.
Scratch Live does not support MP3s containing frames from multiple layers – some
frames may output as silence.
Unsupported file: This file is more than
2 GB in size.
Self explanatory. At the moment, Scratch Live does not support files that are 2 GB in size
(or larger).
Unsupported file: This file has data blocks
greater than 2 GB in size.
This file contains chunks of data that are larger than 2 GB. Scratch Live does not support
files that are more than 2 GB 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.
GOOD SIGNAL - Clean signal with 100%
tracking.
NO SIGNAL - Scratch Live is not
receiving any control signal - check your
connections.
BAD TURNTABLE VIBRATION - Bass
is reaching the stylus. Try to isolate the
turntable from the speakers.
CD PLAYER INTO PHONO INPUT - The
Sixty-Eight is set to receive a phono level
input. Switch to the correct setting on the
mixer.
PHONO INTO LINE INPUT - The SixtyEight is set to receive line level input.
Switch to the correct setting on the mixer.
DUSTY NEEDLE - Dust is preventing the
stylus from tracking the groove correctly.
Clean your needle and the control vinyl.
UNEARTHED - Very susceptible to
interference. Attach the turntable’s ground
wire to the Sixty-Eight.
USING PIGGYBACK CABLES - Picking up
huge amounts of noise, barely tracking.
Check your cables.
DAMAGED NEEDLE - Try re-seating,
cleaning or replacing your stylus.

RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0
Mounting Bracket Accessories
When installing a Sixty-Eight mixer in a
coffin case, it is important to leave 3.9
inches (10 cm) in front and in back of the
mixer to allow room for cables and access
to controls. The rubber feet provided
on the chassis for table top use should
remain in place when installing the mixer
in a coffin case. When in operation, the
coffin case setup must provide 0.39
inches (1 cm) clearance on each side of
the mixer and above the controls on the
face of the mixer.
Two mounting bracket kits are available
for the Sixty-Eight Mixer. Brackets install
easily with three screws on each side.
These are powder-coated .075" steel,
matching the paint of the mixer.

Magnetic Crossfader
Maintenance
The crossfader in the Sixty-Eight is
designed with materials highly resistant
to corrosion and most chemicals. While
it will handle millions of operations, it
may become dirty over time. Bad things
may be spilled into the crossfader, but in
many instances the crossfader may not
be damaged and the sound quality thus
unaffected. Cleaning is only required to
maintain the feel of the crossfader.
In order to maintain the feel of your
faders, they may occasionally require
cleaning and lubrication. The bearings in
the fader work best with DuPont Teflon
Multi-use Lubricant (part # D00040101).
Make sure to follow the instructions and
warnings on the bottle.
This lubricant goes on wet to deeply
penetrate moving parts, but sets up with a
clean, dry, long-lasting film which will not
attract and absorb dirt and grime. Wet or
oily lubricants may feel good at first, but
will attract dirt and evaporate or become
dry over time. See the crossfader cleaning
instructions.
Crossfader Cleaning
Channel Fader Cleaning
1. For a light cleaning, move the carrier to
one side and wipe rails with a lint-free
cloth. Move the carrier to the other side
and repeat.
With heavy use in harsh environments,
the channel faders may need lubrication.
This treatment extends longevity and can
make used faders as good as new. The
fader assembly must be removed from
the Sixty-Eight for proper cleaning. We
recommend any of the following cleaning
solutions:
• Caig DeoxIT FaderLube F100 spray
lubricant.
• Caig DeoxIT FaderLube F5 spray
cleaner.
• CRC 2-26 (www.crcindustries.com).
2. If a heavier cleaning is required to
remove oily lubricants or grease,
first take the carrier off of the rails by
removing one of the endblocks. Clean
the rails using a lint-free cloth and
alcohol. Use a cue-tip and alcohol to
clean the carrier bearings.
3. With the fader clean, dry and
assembled, add a couple of drops of
Teflon Multi-use Lubricant to each rail of
the fader.
4. Move the carrier back and forth to
distribute lubricant.
5. Do not disturb the position of the small
sensors at each end of the fader. If you
accidentally do, make sure the parts are
standing straight before re-installing.

A. Hold the fader assembly away from the
mixer.
B. Position the fader at mid-travel.
6. Problems? Contact Rane Corporation
customer service at 425-355-6000 or
email us at info@rane.com.
C. Spray cleaner/lubricant into both ends
of the fader.
D. Move the fader over its full travel back
and forth a few times.
E. Shake excess fluid from the fader
assembly.
F. Wipe off excess fluid.

RANE SIXTY-EIGHT MIXER FOR SERATO SCRATCH LIVE • OPERATOR’S MANUAL 2.5.0
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 product registration
under support at dj.rane.com. 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.
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.
