hi there, i'm wondering if it is possible to use serato without buying the rane soundcard/hardware?
I was hoping to use my audio outputs of my mac or my pioneer CDJ 400's to my DJ mixer.

I am happy just to use the cdj400's as controllers and run the audio output out of my mac into two channels on a dj mixer via my m-audio firewire 410, or focusrite usb 6.

is this possible? or do i have to buy the rane hardware?

Also serato is only showing me the left channel of its interface at the top and not the right channel.
It also has the flashing rane hardware disconnected sign.
Can i use a different audio hardware?

No, you must buy/have one of the Scratch Live interfaces (SL1, SL3, TTM57, MP4) to use the software.

No, it is not possible. What you are seeing is the internal media player, not the left deck. If you were to plug in the interface, both decks would appear.

You need to purchase the hardware. The software and updates are all free.
