Rane Sixty-Eight mixer with Serato Scratch Live

As we already know, Rane and Serato are best friends. They have collaborated in the past on the TTM-57, to bring you integrated serato controls to the mixer. With the Rane-68, they stepped it up a notch. Basically, this is the one stop controller/mixer to control Serato Scratch Live and Ableton Live if you have The Bridge. It's the first mixer with 2 USB 2.0 ports that supports real-time connection with two computers. If you have about $2300 (rumored price), then this is the mixer for you. There are a lot of buttons on this thing!

Some of the other features include: Direct control of over 30 Scratch Live cue and loop functions. Support for 2,3 or 4 Virtual Decks. Flexible USB recording, new high pass/low pass filter, 6 internal effects and support for computer effects.

Hopefully, we can get our hands on one soon to give it a full review. Check out the pictures below and DJ Enferno using it live at NAMM 2010. More info at Rane and Serato.
