Centered around a rugged hardware audio interface, users can connect their choice of one or two vinyl or CD turntables with USB bus power providing simple and reliable connectivity. The unit is then linked to a laptop or desktop computer running Serato's "Scratch Live" software, a digital media program that is used to store and play high-quality audio files in all leading file formats. The primary appeal of the SL 1 is the inclusion of four "Control Discs" - two vinyl records and two CDs. These rewritable discs allow users to port their audio content for physical playback and interaction, providing a natural DJ experience without needing to switch out CDs or records. This way, vinyl fans can technically bring their whole analog collection to a performance without having to worry about damaging rare and delicate records. Serato's "Proprietary Control Scheme" technology claims to have a latency level so low that analog-to-digital content is virtually indistinguishable to the human ear, making the unit a logical choice for vinyl aficionados. The analog Control Discs can store up to 10 minutes of A-Side content and feature a "Vinyl Scroll" function for remote laptop control, with 15 minutes of B-Side storage. Comparatively, CD Control Discs can store up to 15 minutes each. Replacement vinyl discs are available through Rane's online store, as they are faithfully constructed of wax and susceptible to wear over time.
