Core Audio and Asio drivers for SL3

Dj.Mojo 7:14 AM - 9 June, 2010
Hi,

when the SL3 was released it was said that Core Audio and Asio drivers will be released shortly. Now over a year passed and they are still not released.

Could we get at least an official word on this topic?

Relesing GOOD drivers (not like the ones for the 57 or Sl1) would benefit Serato´s standing a lot. Many people apreciate the fact you can use an Audio8/4 as a stand alone production soundcard and therefore choose Traktor.

And if you are wondering why I opened a new thread for this topic then I got to say that I complained in about every available thread on this topic and simply didn´t get an answer.

Thanks for reading this and giving me useful answer.

Everyone else who is concerned about this topic please give the thread a "+1".

And to support your assertion, Traktor Pro is friendly with SL1 but will not with SL3 at all. I'm wondering what's up with that? If they officially made the promise like they did at NAMM 2010 for another hot button product which is the BRIDGE it will not be the first time folks at Serato make promises to users and not deliver or delivered extremely late. Many of us including myself rushed to upgrade to SL3 to take advantage of these other features.

To whom much is given much is expected they say. To stay #1 and remain there we probably need more than stable software and perfect sound card.

I needed the bridge really bad since SP6 sampling engine is not working for me. Who knows we might wait for another 6 months.
Laz219 12:52 PM - 9 June, 2010
Why would Serato make a push to make their soundcard useful for competing software?
Rane/Serato Do not set dates for things to be released, even a couple of hints about a date for 2.0 had the forums lighting up with people bitching "they said it would be out now and it isn't!"
As far as I know the Bridge was always stated as simply being out in 2.1, which as always was never given a release date.

Simply because being able to use a SL3 with a production software like Cubase, Ableton Logic or any other would be another argument for buying one.

I know they don´t but maybe they just completely forgot about and this is a little reminder.

I am not asking when the bridge will be released. I am just getting a little bit disappointed. This is not a major software update it is drivers.

It's not about competition, it's about flexibility. It would be nice to be able to use the SL3 with any DAW. DAW's are not a competition for SL, they are a total different dish.
Laz219 1:15 PM - 9 June, 2010
I know the reason for having ASIO/CORE, just your specific reference to Traktor seemed a little strange.

My point about the Bridge was not about when it will be released, I'm just stating there was never an expected release date announced so there isn't much ground to be saying they are delivering really late/not at all. Even if they have shown it off early.

That is the wrong conclusion. Even though there was no announced date, to me there is more than enough ground to claim they are delivering late.

I wouldn't think so, I'd say the bridge would be running on a proprietry link as well.

They could advertise it as a soundcard that can be used with ableton + both programs work via the bridge etc.

hi folks,

I am new in with DVS and would like to go with serato, but now i am a little bit disapointed, because if there is no core driver i have to buy another interface for producing.

At the demostration video of the bridge, first the serato guru opended ableton live and it worked but was there the bridge function on or off?!?! Because how does it work? Is the bridge some kind of audio interface emulation for ableton live when you are using it or do you have to use a different audio interface when you would like to use only ableton live without serato?

and what is about this quote:

are the SL1 and 57 drivers so bad. and it is tru the audio 8 interface is really good for price and functionallity!!!
nik39 1:18 PM - 11 June, 2010
The SL1 and 57 drivers for windows are... let's say they could be improved.

The CoreAudio drivers for the 57 are good. However, since Mac OSX 10.5.7 the CA are halfway broken.

Hey guys I own a SL1...but just wanna get this straight...
Currently there is so way to use the SL1 in Ableton right? Due to the lack of Core Audio drivers? However the release of Bridge should also apply to the SL1 am I correct? If so, will I be able to use my SL1 for production purposes in Ableton? I hope by then there will be some propriety link between the Serato hardware and Ableton software.

ttm57 seems to work now
maybe there is hope...

i try with ttm57 as soon as i get home
for the sl3, i agree, we need the core audio drivers.

one more question:
if the sl3 works with the bridge how did serato do this?
does ableton access some internal serato interface, or are there core audio drivers on the way?
maybe a mod can respond at least to that....

except serato and rane have never marketed or even suggested that the hardware should or could be used as an audio device outside of scratch live (actually, the SL1 has ASIO drivers and they said they were trying to incorporate coreaudio years back and then said it was too difficult to implement or something). Serato has always preached being a closed system and it doesn't look like that's going to change. It's one of the few cons about choosing serato over the competition, but that's one of the prices you have to pay for using serato...

not a dealbreaker for me cause i'd rather have a soundcard specifically for production with balanced 1/4" outs, a proper headphone out, mic pre-amps, proper mic ins, and the like.

(I have complained like you dj mojo in older threads requesting the CORE AUDIO drivers, not only for the SL3, but for the SL1 too which I owned before, since those drivers were also promised to SL1 users... after years of waiting I just gave up and bought a studio sound card, but it would also be nice to use SL1/SL3 with any DAW for portability, and also Serato should keep their promise)

works on mac os x 10.6.4
but you always only have input OR output for each channel, never both.
ex.:
if you switch to analog 1, the sound from the vinyl reaches the mac
but the output on that channel then is just whats on the vinyl
and if you swtich to digital 1, no input reaches the computer, but you can hear whats on that virtual deck. so this would work only with internal mode in ther software
i didn't figure out how to use both at the same time which would enable to use it with other DVS in absolute or relative mode.
MA3E 1:09 AM - 29 July, 2010
I have a feeling this is the first glimpse into what is coming around the corner. Which also could very easily be why the mods are so quiet about this... for now. For now I suggest forgetting about it and moving on, or waiting to see what is coming. They are obviously working on things... things that we want.

Personally I was going to go out and buy a USB soundcard. Now I think I will hold off on that for a moment.
KYLE SMILE 12:14 PM - 29 July, 2010
Thing is, won't this be implemented into the SL1 box which i have owned for several years?

For the cost of upgrading to the SL3 box, i could just buy another sound card anyway.

2nd hand SL1 = £250
New SL3 = £500

For £250 and less i could easily get another sound card anyway.

Will there ever be core audio drivers for the SL 1?
Core audio support for the SL 1 was initially planned for development. Unfortunately due to a hardware limitation in the SL 1 it is not possible to provide core audio drivers for the unit.

NOT GOOD ENOUGH. I just got my SL3 last week. It's already up on ebay. To anyone on this thread thinking of the audio 8 DJ and traktor I personally think that traktor is far superior to SSL now that I've had a few days to test out the SL3. I also think that the Audio 8 is better than the SL3. It sounds just as good and it has more IO options plus midi and a headphone (xlr) input. IF serato were to release stable ASIO/core audio drivers THEN i would have MAYBE kept the SL3 since it would have meant that I could use either serato or traktor (kinda cool). But without drivers the SL3 becomes an expensive proprietary piece of junk. NO THANKS. Excuse me while I go make a mix with traktor scratch pro. I'm very disappointed that the competition between these two isn't more evenly matched and I'm SHOCKED at how many people I still see using Serato. I tend towards ranting so I apologize I just get pissed off when something I'm looking forward to as much as the SL3 turns out to be a huge disappointment.

Serato, you better hurry before more customers turn into "contractcookers"!
contractcooker 2:37 PM - 18 September, 2010
Oh my!!! please please can everyone use my handle to describe disgruntled serato users. HAHA I only vent because I care. I think it's great that serato has SSL and that they specifically target "old school" djs who don't care/want all the extra stuff.... the problem is that Native Instruments (traktor) is beating serato at their own game for the most part**. Anyway competition is good but I feel like Serato has some catching up to do in the hardware department. I'd love someone to tell me why I'm wrong.

Again, I hate to be a "contractcooker" on your asses but get your act together :-D


**I think that it's kinda awesome how small serato is and how quickly it loads. Granted I don't have a large library for SSL so I'm not sure if it slows down precipitously the more tracks you have in your collection but traktor takes quite a while to load on a feb' 08 macbook pro. Anyway I was impressed by the load time and I also like the extra waveform displays and layout customizations available in SSL.

If you like TSP better coo.......but to my knowledge Serato does does not market the sl3 to be a soundcard for your DAW and other software .I think it would be dope for sl3 to have core audio,but not a deal breaker by any means.

No, actually I just joined the forum because I ordered an SL3 and was excited about it. I didn't start complaining until I started evaluating the experience of the SL3/SSL compared to Audio8/TSP. My complaints are well-founded and relatively polite. I still think serato is a teriffic company but luckily in this market we have many choices and FOR ME Audio 8/TSP is better. I understand that serato does not market their interface as a sound card but that is exactly what the problem is. I know that writing drivers must be somewhat challenging but considering how much functionality it offers there's just no excuse not to include them. IN MY OPINION the decision not to include them (and drag feet when you say that they're coming) is shitty and hurts their consumers. It's not as if providing the drivers would change how the SL3 performed in SSL. (correct me if I'm wrong)

I know it may seem like I'm a troll trying to bait someone into a TSP vs SSL flame war but I honestly passionately care about my hobby and am excited with how much is possible when you combine new technology with an old (well really not that old at all) art-form. To all you SSL users out there I love you guys. I hope you continue to make killer sets using serato scratch live and drive some people crazy on the floor. I saw Tatiana Fontes last night and she was using Serato and absolutely blew my mind (the opener was better though just straight cdjs)

Anyway, sorry to be "whack" I'm just responding to this thread what comes to mind. My opinions are just the opinion of a mediocre dj with limited financial resources. I think serato can do better but they're already doing a great job. Just like I think NI can do better even though I love TSP.

Bottom line for me is. I like doing things with my soundcard like mastering in reaper or using it with ableton live. If I spend $700 on a 3x3 interface it had better be the best damn thing in the world and should make me chocolate cake when I ask it to. (ok I know I know part of that money is going toward paying for R&D for the software. but still it's $700 bucks). For $300 less I get a fully featured 4x4 interface with midi that is stable and built like a tank.

Anyway, since I will no longer be an owner of SL3 after it sells on ebay I will stop posting to these forums and leave them to people who are invested in a Serato solution.

I hope someone finds my opinions useful. I think they have some merit. I apologize for any hyperbole. Sometimes the catharsis of venting leads me to make grand generalized negative statements about whatever I'm ranting on. I try to avoid this but It's inevitable given my zeal for this stuff. Whatever you do, DON'T PANIC! Dance.

that is not 100% true. the audio8dj only has 2 phono preamps. the sl-3 really supports three turntables. you only get 4 decks in traktor to run with timecode if two of them are cd players.
so once serato finally drops asio and core audio drivers (if they ever do... damn please just do it!!)
then they have some real advantage on their competitor.

Ok. I didn't realize that. Since I only have 2 turntables it's not a big deal for me but having more phono inputs would make a difference if you wanted more than two turntables. Are there a lot of people using three turntables on the forum? Just curious. I've only seen it once with Carl Cox.

so it doesnt change the mp3 or the way it is sent to sl3 box? i read its a low latency to interface. so all it would do is allow you to use the sl3 for other software?

Did you actually download and install the ASIO drivers from the thread I posted above? The ASIO/CoreAudio drivers are separate from everything else.

Thanks Konix. I'm able to start the SIXTY-EIGHT Audio Driver Control Panel. The Filter Resonance Low or High is nice. I have MIDI Out as 1 and MIDI In as 1.

However, MIDI OX or Traktor does not recognize any MIDI in or out. I installed the 64-bit version. Restarted Windows 7 64-bit. There is no ASIO for the Sixty-Eight in ASIO 4 All, Traktor, or Ableton LIVE. I only see MP4, SL 1 and TTM 57 SL Driver. I right clicked Computer and went to Properties, then Device Manager. Under Sound Video and Game Controllers, there is Rane SIXTY-EIGHT.

HOW DO YOU GET ASIO ENABLED ON THIS THING? Device Firmware is updated to 1.25.

No, external vinyl/cd control is locked to TS certified mixers and A4/8 hardware.

I also prefer Scratchlive over Itch at this time so am hoping they had an all-in-one product. Maybe the new Itch controllers they announce at NAMM might work for me.

Itch will eventually become the the flagship product as new djs enter the market and controllers will be the norm.

There is really no need for a user guide.
All these drivers allow a user to do is use the SL3 or Sixty Eight as a sound card for other applications.
If you don't use Ableton Live, Virtual DJ, Cubase, Logic etc then you won't need to take advantage of these drivers.
If you do have these programs, install the driver, open the sound preferences of the program your using, and choose the SL3 or Sixty Eight as your output device.
The CA and ASIO drivers have nothing to do with Scratch Live.

Hi Fellas!

I have a problem with the new 64bit Drivers. I have Windows 7 and the SL3 connected.
Now i run the installer for 64 bit OS. After clicking on "install" the next dialog appears which tells me the following:

"The wizard was interrupted before the RANE SL3 (ver. 1.2.0f20) could be completely installed.

Your system has not been modified. To complete installation at another time, please run setup again.

Click finish to exit the wizard"

That happens every time i run the installer :(

What i am supposed to do now?

Any fast help highly appreciated.

Peace

Zach S 6:16 PM - 1 December, 2010
Hey THX,

Sounds like the driver install just got botched.

If you open your device manager do you see any yellow exclamation points or question marks next to any Scratch Live related drivers?
If so, right click, choose to 'uninstall'.
If a window pops up that has the option to 'delete driver software' then check the box and continue with the uninstall.

Once uninstalled, unplug the SL3, plug it back in, and try installing the ASIO drivers again.
THX101 6:55 PM - 1 December, 2010
No, sorry, there are no exclamation points. Neither is the SL3 in the List, only under USB Controller with old 2009 drivers, but its stated like fully in function.

It is just the error message i mentioned before. Even if i replug the SL3. At the audio control panel from windows there is also only my onborad sound card in the list.

so it seems that nothing will be installed.

my scratch live software 2.2 beta shows me i have SL3 firmware 2.30 if that matters at some point.

HMMMMM?!

thanks you

Zach S 7:24 PM - 1 December, 2010
Well your not going to see the SL3 in your computers sound output settings.
Only in ASIO compatible software such as Ableton, Cubase, etc.

Are you sure your running a 64bit system?
THX101 7:36 PM - 1 December, 2010
Hi Zach,

yo, it is def a 64bit system. Windows 7.

I thought in this thread it was said that you can select the SL3 as normal output device for media players?! Ok, that is not important for me at all, i have Soundbooth CS4 installed only at the laptop at the moment, but i think it should recognize it, it shows me Soundbooth WDM Sound, Soundbooth DirectSound, MP4 Driver, SL1 Driver, TTm57 SL Driver, don't know why, i think it is because of the Scratch Live installation and software. But nowhere i can find the SL3 as audio interface. It isnt in the windows software install/uninstall panel either.

It is just the error on install. Clearly strange?!

No i tried with Reaper, also nothing to see. It seems that the installation is cancelled for some reason i am not able to figure out :(

Try uninstalling it and its driver software.

I deinstalled Scratch Live, then this Rane SL 3 Usb Controller Driver, then replugged the SL3 Usb Interface and started the installation again. Same error. The windows installation jumps in automatically also when i replug the SL3 after deinstalling.

I dont get the point :(

No, sorry, there are no exclamation points. Neither is the SL3 in the List, only under USB Controller with old 2009 drivers, but its stated like fully in function.

It is just the error message i mentioned before. Even if i replug the SL3. At the audio control panel from windows there is also only my onborad sound card in the list.

so it seems that nothing will be installed.

my scratch live software 2.2 beta shows me i have SL3 firmware 2.30 if that matters at some point.

HMMMMM?!

thanks you

im having the same problem i got 64bit windows 7 installed the driver opened VJ & i dont see SL3 as a option ? device manager also the old 2009 drivers ?

Unfortunately the same error on a different port. The only thing where the SL3 appears is in the windows system device manager under "USB-Controller" -> Rane SL 3, Driver Date: 16.02.2009, Driver Version 1.2.5.0, Serato Audio Research...

I think the problem may be that VDJ isn't 64bit ASIO compatible.
I tried calling VDJ tech support today but wasn't able to get through.
I left a message and will hopefully be hearing back from them.
In the meantime... does anyone else know if VDJ is 64bit ASIO compatible?

That would explain why your not seeing it in the sound preferences in VDJ.

If it is not 64bit ASIO compatible then you would need to downgrade your OS to 32bit and use the 32bit ASIO driver for the SL3.

This section of the forum is to discuss topics. You are dealing with a problem with the ASIO driver install which is going to be part of the 2.2 release. Your issue needs to be dealt with in the 2.2 Public Beta section.

I am looking into this. Please be patient. We'll discuss this more in your other post.

Scratch live didn´t recognize the soundcard. I had to uninstall the drivers, then hard-reboot my macbook and it gladly worked.

It is possible for a 64bit driver to work in a 32bit program but I have been told by our engineer department that it would take a lot of work to make that happen.
It is getting looked into though.

I find you quite aggressive despite the fact Serato give us - this time - very precise answers.

IMO such low-level drivers requires strong knowledge and iterative development. The first release just can't be perfect.

For this reason I hope Rane is actively working on fixes (on features, code architecture... and performance !), and we'll see more mature releases for ASIO/CA drivers soon
Mutis 11:40 AM - 12 December, 2010
IMHO the anger is understandable. When Rane Serato designed the SL-3 they have the chance to borrow SL-1 issues (I'm not gonna call them mistakes, ok) with no Asio support for 500 $ dj gear but they don't made it (or they are really slow and unnatural designing way releasing hardware without standard Asio drivers and software...).

Now NI drops the price and Rane Serato make some movements in this direction... It is very suspicious, sorry. The only explanation I can found is that the "Serato-Live partnership" were made without Rane. Rane discover it and force Serato to release new hardware...

I'm only imagine of course... but I can understand the anger from users. The Bridge came too late and NI is giving more for less money.

Let's see NAMM'11.
nik39 12:30 PM - 12 December, 2010
"IMHO the anger is understandable"

"Now NI drops the price and Rane Serato make some movements in this direction... It is very suspicious"
Disagree. There are no signs that proof that point. From day 1 Serato and Rane have said that ASIO drivers *will* come.
mastermind 9:09 PM - 12 December, 2010
IMHO

ASIO and CORE drivers should have been out a long time ago. My frustration came from The SL1. I started to get into the production side of things a few years back and I asked my self. Why cant i use this very nice,durable sound card for my production needs?
I had to go out and spend money on another sound card that i cant use with Scratch live.
I thank rane and serato for jumping on this drivers but it did take longer that it should have.

Of course, only suspicious... not blaming. My another sentence was more critical "I think was forced by Rane due to Ableton/Serato partnership was started without Rane permission".

ryanaround 6:11 PM - 16 December, 2010
Let's start with the setup: 2007 MBP 2.2GHz C2D (Santa Rosa) 10.6.5 with the SL3 attached and running through an external mixer (big yawn, nothing special).

I installed the new CoreAudio drivers, restarted the machine, and the SL3 came up as an available audio interface. Success! Decided to launch Traktor just to see if the SL3 would show up and be usable there. Yes! Did all of my audio routing setup, cued up a track in each deck and hit play on both (for testing purposes). No audio. Tried every combination of output routing and nothing. Le suck!

Quit Traktor and made the SL3 my audio interface for my machine. Success! Played some audio and got nothing out of any of the outputs. Sucky balls.

I ended up uninstalling the drivers, read through the entire thread here, but found nothing that referenced this problem. Seems like others have had success getting these drivers working in OS X so I'm curious what OS X version the successes are running. Scratch is still my primary tool, but the novelty of being able to use Traktor and only take one box with me was too good to pass up. Baby steps.
Rane, Support
Zach S 6:36 PM - 16 December, 2010
Hm... this should be pretty straight forward.
If you open your System Preferences do you see the SL3 listed under 'Other'?

If so, if you click on it to open it up with your Sl3 connected does it register that the device is plugged in?

If so, if you then open up your Sound preferences and choose the SL3 as your output device the sound will come out of the AUX output of the SL3.
Make sure this AUX output is plugged into a line input on your mixer and that your listening to that particular input.

As for using it with Traktor... You should only need to select it as your Audio Device, clicking on the Output Routing option, choose the External Mixing Mode, and make sure Output A is set to SL3 Out 0/1 and that Output Channel B is set to Out 2/3 and that Output C is set to Out 4/5.

Note.. all sound will output out of the SL3 so the outputs of the SL3 need to be going into line inputs on your mixer. You won't hear anything through your computer's speakers.

Hopefully that will get it working:)
ryanaround 8:49 PM - 16 December, 2010
@Zach - You basically described everything I did verbatim practically. I made it easier on myself by having all 3 stereo outs plugged into the mixer to individual channels on the mixer, all levels up, crossfader disabled and everything as it should be. That way any sound that's going to be passed through the SL3 would hit one of the stereo pairs, but oddly – nada. I'm going to give this another go later when I have a bit more time and if I still have issues I'll follow up.

thanks!

Hey Zach,this is strange but the ASIO drivers included with the scratch live version 2.2 beta does not detect SL3 at all...it keeps on searching for the device...but the standalone drivers you provided works flawless...

At first i installed just the drivers and everything worked as it is supposed to..but then as i installed the scratch live 2.2 beta along with the drivers,its stopped detecting the sl3...i installed the standalone drivers again and everything was normal again..!!!!

Im also using SL3 as my card with FL Studio.No problems at all but does get glitchy and gives fuzzy output for the first 2 seconds evrytime I start fl studio with my device as SL3 and also cpu usage shows maximum...

Works well with VDJ as well as Deckadance..

No sound from Nuendo while using SL3 as the device...plzz fix this..

Because most new notebooks have more than 3ghz of RAM, they are sold with Win 7 64-bit. I've got 4 other audio cards that are 32-bit and they work wonderful on Windows 7 64-bit.

Quote from one of our testers, Greg,
Quote:
Are there any other apps open that are using the ASIO driver? This shouldn't be a problem, but I have run into problems in the past where some programs latch onto an ASIO driver and don't let any other apps use it simultaneously, so it would be
good to know the answer to that.
In Nuendo, does he have to enable the I/O
channels of the device (like you do in Ableton) before you can set up the
tracks to use those channels? If yes, has he done so?

We should have updated drivers which will allow a 64bit computer to use the SL3 or Sixty Eight in a 32bit app very soon. They are being tested here at Rane as we speak.

The long delay for the SL3 is due to the CA driver and pID switching. The driver we are testing now, should be ready soon, fixes this delay.
nagra 7:04 PM - 2 March, 2011
Yeah, I thought the PID switching could be causing that... :p lol
Mutis 10:45 PM - 2 March, 2011
CA = Core Audio
pID = plug ID?
powercut 3:19 PM - 3 March, 2011
It takes ages (and quite often caused crashes when starting up and shutting down SSL), so I uninstalled it. Looking forward to the update!
Mutis 9:29 AM - 4 March, 2011
;)
nagra 3:34 PM - 4 March, 2011
I reinstalled the driver and it works now... don't know what I did different before (did the CoreAudio driver got updated recently?)

I also see the configuration window... would it be possible to have a output volume control on the driver? I don't need it to be recognized by the OS and accessible by the system, I just need something to lower the crazy output of the SL3!!! This is possible in SSL and it's really useful because otherwise I need to set my mixer's input gain to the minimum (and it can still saturate my inputs).

Any volume adjustments should be made in the software your using with the SL3.

Any word on the new 64-bit drivers to work in a 32-bit program?
DJ MDX 2:44 AM - 3 April, 2011
Just downloaded & installed for testing 68 w/TP2.
So far I got sound but only USB 1 works for both ch 1 & 2... Hmm odd??
dmestriner 7:56 PM - 3 April, 2011
Hi,

I posted a thread about switching between VDJ automix and SSL playing live ( serato.com ), and basically I see that a lot of the problem I'm having is being discussed here.
My problem atm is: when I open VDJ and select ASIO as sound card, only SL1 driver shows up (along with MP4 and TTM57SL). I already tried updating the driver, but it gives me no difference. Also on my windows playback devices there is no SL3, although it IS in device manager under USB Controllers. When I tried to update the driver via there, it said the drivers were already up to date.
I read something about the ASIO drivers only being in the beta? or is that outdated already?
Note: I am not running 64bit, just plain ol' 32 bit windows 7, and running the latest stable SSL release 2.2.0.22033.

Did you change your audio preferences in Traktor so that audio from Deck A is routing out of 1/2 and audio from Deck B is routed out of 3/4?
You'll also need to use external mixing.. not internal. This is a preference in the Audio setup of Traktor.

My guess is you have your SL3 plugged in and SSL open when you open Virtual DJ?
If so, VDJ won't see the SL3 as a sound card option.
You'll need to shut down SSL before you can use it as VDJs sound card.

Yes, I have but I think they've made some changes to TP2 so things just aren't the same from the previous version - but I'll mess with it some more later due to I've not had much sleep yet.

Sl-3 doesnt work on traktor 2 in the drip down box is just mp-4, ttm57 and sl-1. I guess this is due to ranes sl-3 and sixty eoght drivers being f**ked on 64bit os using a 32bit program so let us know your findings zach.

Rane and serato getting worried and have to dissect the competition,

and i doubt they care if there product works with tracktor if thats the way you want to spin it
CMOS 5:59 PM - 5 April, 2011
I would imagine Rane being a hardware developer wants to ensure their product works with Traktor as the mixers contain Asio sound cards.

Why would they NOT want their hardware mixer with built in sound card to work with traktor?

THis is Rane we are speaking of not Serato.
LJ_WOOLSEY 6:05 PM - 5 April, 2011
I dont give a #### about traktor, just there so much hyoe about wanted to try it and herd you can use the sl-3 but only for internal not timecode.. So for s##ts and giggles went to try it. And boooooom nope dont work.
The Return of Dj Sparky 6:10 PM - 5 April, 2011
either way, think about it what do Rane get out of making there product work on trakor? nothing,

they already gimped the drivers by not adding native windows WDM,
there are problems with the 64bit drivers using 32 bit programs,

for a software company thats really unexcetable that you can't develop a proper driver
LJ_WOOLSEY 6:19 PM - 5 April, 2011
If they say its got asio drivers and works it should work with any asio software end of. Im sure they will get some new drivers out one day. I only wanted to test what traktor does lol. Apart from that i have no need for asio drivers.

Zach S 6:30 PM - 5 April, 2011
We have fixed the 64bit issue in the latest driver build. They just aren't available to the public yet.
Keep in mind.. these drivers are still in beta. The updated driver will be available to you all very soon.

Sparky.. We want our mixers to work with Traktor and every other dj software out there. That is why we created Core Audio and ASIO drivers.
I have friends that have bought the Sixty Eight to only use it with Traktor.
We, Rane, want everyone to buy our mixers. Not just SSL users.

WDM drivers for sixty eight would allow use to use it for everything. From itunes to karaoke to youtube. So....

and not to mention its 2011, the sl3 was released in 09, takes more then 2 years to release the drivers? and there still not ready, how can defend that
dmestriner 7:06 PM - 5 April, 2011
okay, here is what I did:
reboot laptop, connect SL3 (without SSL running), run SSL installer 2.2.0.2033, click repair, DOS-window comes up with notification that SL3 device was found, driver updated. Open VDJ, go to config->soundcard->ASIO and still I only see ASIO4Allv2, MP4, SL1, TTM57SL drivers. These drivers also show up when nothing is connected, the SL3 driver has never shown up. SL3 device does show up in device manager (only when connected).
Any idea what I'm (still) doing wrong?

Hey dmestriner,

After re-reading your posts it doesn't sound like you've installed the ASIO drivers for your SL3.

ah, thank you very much guys! I asked earlier if these only were included with the beta or not (I didn't get any answer, and I looked at the forum posts about beta and it said it was closed, so I figured they were in public now). Gonna go give it a spin now, thanks again!
DJ MDX 7:49 PM - 5 April, 2011
I have clubs looking at the Sixty-Eight for installations - that's the reason I want to test my Sixty-Eight with these drivers with as many different software companies as possible including TP2.

A universal mixer is what all clubs dream of, it offeres different options to all DJ's no matter their flavor of DVS - just plug in and go.....this could also help with some "Rider" difficulties.......it's a very logical move and all the hating on other DVS's is really narrow-minded.

I love my SSL and it has been my bread and butter since it's inception. I've owned just about all the products that Rane has put out for SSL so I will always use it but it does not mean I can't test other systems or at least offer viable options for others :putyourthinkingcapon:

Hey MDX,

I did get TS2 and its working just as it should.
Go into your Audio preferences, select the Sixty Eight.
Click on Output Routing and select 'External' as your mixing mode.
From there, choose 0-1 for deck A, 2-3 for deck B,
4/5 for deck C, and 6/7 for deck D.

Lastly, just make sure your USB assignments are correct on the Sixty Eight.
PGM1 set to USB 1, PGM2 to USB 2, PGM3 to 3, and PGM4 to 4.

That should do it:)
DJ MDX 10:02 PM - 14 April, 2011
Hey Zach,

The audio is routing correctly but the other stuff is still not working as described. Any ideas?

Any idea when and/or if there are still plans for that? I keep all of my karaoke in nice tight little .zip files. VDJ plays them flawlessly. It would be nice if Serato VSL would soon offer that same compatibility.

Just want to be clear here.
We (Rane) have had these drivers ready for months now.
The first version of the drivers were unofficially released via a Public Beta over 6 months ago.
There was a minor tweak we (Rane) needed to do to the driver in order to use 32bit programs on 64bit Windows operating systems but that was fixed months ago as well.
If your not using a Windows 64 bit OS with a 32 bit program then I can send you the current, pre released, driver. Just shoot me a PM.

The newest driver, which will work with 32bit apps on a Windows 64bit machine, will be available in the 2.3 version of SSL.

The reason why we haven't been able to give the latest driver out is because Serato has needed to test them to make sure there are no conflicts on the Scratch Live side of things and add them to their installer.

Good news is the wait is almost over for the people who use Windows 64bit:)

Its not a problem with 2.2. Its a problem with the installer for 2.3 and is getting looked into.
For now do as Sparky is suggesting.

Just downloaded the ASIO drivers and the beta. works as an output from ableton to my mixer perfectly assuming that SSL is open, but noticed it has no input config. Is there a way to use this as an external input with these drivers? Also, should the SL3 show up in my recording/playback devices menu in windows?

You can't use the ASIO or CA drivers while SSL is open.
I'm assuming your looking at Serato's driver for the Bridge when looking at the audio config section of Ableton.
Shut down SSL and open the Audio setting of Ableton. You should then be able to choose the Sixty Eight as your Audio device at which point you'll be able to select the inputs.

Sorry if this might be slightly offtopic.

When I use my Sl3 as a soundcard with my Macbook (2,0ghz 4GB Ram) and maschine I often get pops and cracks. Is this the SL3 driver? Or is it the CPU? Or should I start a help request?

Hey Mojo,

My guess is you need to boost the usb buffer in the SL3s Preference Pane in System Preferences.

I see others have has success with SL3 ASIO 2.31. I have not yet. I am in Win7 64b, I have tried both Traktor and Abelton both see the same audio drivers yet neither see the Sl3 driver which is running. What am I missing?

Yes.. that not a problem. Just choose the SL3 as your Audio Input device and choose your internal sound card as the Output device.

Zach S 4:33 PM - 24 October, 2011
Hey dirtyred,

You won't be able to use DVS with an SL3 and Traktor but you can route the audio from Traktor through the SL3.
Simply select the SL3 as your Core Audio device in the Sound preferences of Traktor and then route the virtual decks out of the outputs of the SL3.
1/2 first deck, 3/4 second deck, 5/6 third deck.

Just to elaborate.. Traktor Scratch Pro doesn't work indeed, but Traktor Pro does.

Zach S 3:55 PM - 25 October, 2011
You can use Traktor Scratch Pro with any Rane hardware (aside from an SL1 on a Mac due to there not being any CA drivers for the SL1).
You just can't use cd players or turntables to control the decks in Traktor.
dirtyred 6:20 PM - 25 October, 2011
Thanks Zach

So i got Traktor to recognize the core audio driver, I'm using a X1 btw , have dVS control with scratch. My issue now is that both decks are coming through only 1 channel in my mixer, and split among the speakers! Appreciate your help on this
Rane, Support
Zach S 6:24 PM - 25 October, 2011
If your now wanting to route the audio from the decks in Traktor you need to go into the Audio settings, change to External output and select the outputs.
The SL3 gives you 3 stereo outputs.
As I stated above... deck 1 needs to be set to 1/2, deck 2 needs to be set to 3/4, and deck 3 needs to be set to 5/6.
dirtyred 7:05 PM - 25 October, 2011
I have deck 1 set 1/2 and deck 2 set to 3/4 and deck 3 to 5/6 but I'm still getting both decks coming through 1 channel on my mixer. Any way i can send you a screen of my traktor setup? Completely new to it's interface..

I responded to your email.. here is the response for everyone else to see:

Quote:
I'm guessing your using the left and right deck outputs of the SL3 then?

The Aux output represents 0/1.
Left deck output is 2/3
Right deck output is 4/5.


That would make sense:)
nuno rendeiro 1:42 PM - 27 October, 2011
i, i'm tryng to use sl3 interface to dj with live 8 but without the bridge.i have the 3 outs of the sl3 connect to 3 separte channels on a djm 600 mixer.
on live 8 audio preferences i select the serato 6in-6 out interface, but when i go to the main view in live 8 i can only route sound to one channel in the mixer coming from outs1/2 from live trought aux output on the sl3. can't get any sound from the other 2 outputs of the sl3.
is there any configuration i'm missing or it just not possible to have the 3 sl3 outputs individually routed in live8?

hope tou can help as i'm burning my brain out fro a couple a days and no results...and i cant find anyone using same setup on the internet....

kind regards

Zach S 3:43 PM - 27 October, 2011
Hey nuno,

It sounds like you need to change the outputs of the tracks you've created in Live to EXT and then select the external out you want to use for that track.

This requires you to look at your I/O options.
Do this by clicking the little I/O button on the far right side of the screen.

One you see the ins/outs for your tracks select EXT and choose the output (1/2, 3/4, 5/6).

That should do it:)
nuno rendeiro 3:52 PM - 27 October, 2011
i think i tryed this configuration last night and only came out sound from ext out 1/2 trought channel 3 ini the mixer. i'm at work right now and i only can check this out at 23:00, but i let you know as soon as i get home.

thanks Zack
nuno rendeiro 10:24 PM - 27 October, 2011
hi guys, i just got home. i have tryed that setup yesterday and no sound was coming to the mixer from channels 3/4 and 5/6. when i started the mac and live it was everything working perfect, all 3 channels routed to individual channels in the mixer.

i can only find one explanation first i only had 2 channels configured in the audio preferences of live, then later on i enabled the chanels 3,4,5 and 6.

. after making changes in audio preferences of live maybe you have to restart live or even booting the mac so the changes could make effect. i can't find no other reason....

anyway thanks for the pic konix and also thank you to Zach

now i have live, apc40, sertao interface, and native x1 all together working judt fine

thanks again

hi, i have some bad news, i just got home rebooted mac and started live8. it-s happening again, only the audio track assigned to channels 1/2 in live 8 gives some signal on the mixer, the other 2 tracks shows like playing in live but in the mixer no signal. i have attached a print screen... i akready rebooted live and the mac several times but still doesnt work...

can you help Zach?

Have to say that the Serato / Rane support and forum is far superior to the Native Instruments one.

Hi

Following on from the above.

I now have SL3 working with Asio for Ableton which is great as I am trying to keep the amount of stuff plugged into my computer to a minimum!

Is there any word of WDM drivers as well - it would be so useful to be able to play music in iTunes through the SL3.

Many thanks
James

Afaik there are only Asio and Core Audio drivers.
Can´t you use your SL3 with itunes and Asio Drivers?

There are no plans on creating WDM drivers for our devices.
If you were on a Mac you could use CA drivers to get audio from iTunes but not on a Windows machine.

Thanks Zach.
Without trying to be smart (I'm out of my depth here) but is there likely to be any support for the windows version of core audio or WASAPI?
It would be so useful to be able to use the SL3 as a normal sound card as well as a dj interface.
