Introducing Serato SL-3

Rane has recently made an announcement of a new interface for Serato users. Sorry, no new software yet, although a new version with a sampler and a rumored third table easter egg is currently in Beta mode. The SL3 improves upon the SL1 by switching to USB 2.0, improving the dynamic range to 104db, adding 24bit converters, Galvanic isolation preventing computer noise, an aux input for live mix recording or controlling external sources with the control records(fucking A?), an aux output for routing new version 1.9’s sampler into a mixer channel, high grade phono preamps, and a new streamlined look to make hooking it up easier. Oh, and you get carrying case with it to. The aux input and output is what Rane is really pushing. There are numerous possibilities with these including the ability to route the mysterious third deck easter egg into a third mixer channel or recording the output back into your computer. I wish Rane would have shed some light about their fusion with Ableton, but I guess this will keep us Serato junkies happy until then.
