The only thing that SDJ is lacking is the bullet-proof stability of SSL. Feature wise, it is already a couple miles ahead. But I highly doubt it will ever be as stable as SSL, as it has to cover a lot more ground (with all those supported controllers), while SSL had only to work with the Rane products and some other controllers. Probably Serato has run into a brick wall, similar to Windows vs OS X and their range of supported hardware. Their early business model (with only Rane as their hardware partner) was a huge success, but their turn to globalization has already back fired, even though they lowered the entry barrier cost for DJs.
after taking a tour of the rane factory and having long talks with many of the employees there i can see why they charge what they do for a mixer. Its a small company that makes very high end products. And also what other mixer with built in serato is cheap?? there isnt one out there.
It could be possible go a bit further improving the recording cappabilities of mixtape. Adding turntable vector recording (check the scratch track automation recording) or if you prefer doing it with SSL, split the turntable output and recording the serato vinyl directly alongside SSL audio from deck. Routing it properly gives you the chance of editing even scratching mistakes. Not clever solution due to lack of imagination in most DVS developers and the mantram about realdjing everytime a feature makes things easier. It could be true multritrack and gesture recording.
Get over it, there are many people out there who have technical issues with SDJ. If it works for you, fine! And yet if your general solution to these problems is to get new computers or hardware, you could also respect that some people don´t want to or can´t do that for various reasons.
4.) Distortion issues with TTM57mkII. So many folks that loved the TTM57mkI would love to upgrade to the mkII model, but there are terrible issues with distorted sound. This occurs with OSX 10.8. Sure folks can upgrade to a newer OS, but once they go to 10.9 or newer, if they need to go back to SSL, even temporarily, lots of stability and disconnection problems then exist: It should work on all supported OSs.
I invite you to join few of us at serato forums for this debate. I find your set very interesting (I explored similar ways) and still know some workaraounds that you may find interesting. Meanwhile I want to share an interesting paper about jitter in DAWs which I hope you find useful.
SSL with the SL2 since the biginning when it was released think 2006 or 2007: 2 Times problems that where related to a broken USB Cable(doing around 15 gigs a year). Tested Serato DJ (same Laptop with 2 times CDJ 2000 as controller and the same Interface so in total same hardware and same OSX Version): In 1 Year more problems with crashes, dropouts strange things that i could not really explain or reproduce then all the years before. Also Serato DJ Looks simpy ugly compared to SSL (but that is not a mainreason). They wanted to support tons of hardware and make it availible for everybody that is not willing to pay for quality. The price is a more unstable system that i as a professional DJ who must make a living from that job can not accept. So i still use SSL because i can count on that system and i payed a lot for it. I know that i could try to tweak my system and test around, work with the support and read bugreports/crashreports but that´s not what i want and what i payed for. I could buy a new laptop but sorry if a 2011 macbook that´s only used for djing does not work than they made some misstakes in the development. SSL was for nearly every user: Install and have fun it simply works, that´s why you payed 700 Euro. SDJ is install it, works for most users but if not it´s hard to findout why. That´s why you maybe only payed 300.
I have a major problem with getting my Serato SL1 box to work with Serato DJ. i have a new solid state hard drive and i lost all of my files. I dont have the original SL1 driver, and cannot find it, ive looked everywhere. What do i need to? my sl1 serato scratch live box is not working with the serato dj. thanks djs
I have a laptop running win 8.1 and i considering buying an SL1 and using it with scratch live. Why? because i am only doing this as a hobby (not making money or leaving my basement) and i want the cheapest way to a functional serato system. Is this crazy talk in mid 2018?
And upgrades will generally be free for those of you who have made an investment in Rane hardware or ITCH controllers, apart from entry-level Serato DJ Intro users. (Serato Video will also work without incident inside the new Serato DJ.)

For the uninitiated (like yours truly), the whole idea of scratching an mp3 on a computer using what's essentially a joystick in the shape of an actual turntable is a little bit baffling. But A-Trak has decades of experience with this sort of thing, so once we were done asking him about what vinyl means to him, and why he doesn't use it in shows any more, we got him to take a step back and explain the basics of how Serato works.
"I think Cypress Hill was the first band to think of this: rappers went to radio stations and were like, 'What's this machine you're using to trigger all your audio?' And they started using it for live shows. It's also an extremely rugged machine and it was really loud. Rappers like loud sounds. So for all these reasons combined, for years and year every rapper was using this instant replay machine. This big machine with 50 buttons that could trigger all their instrumental tracks. And when I started working with Kanye, his show was on an instant replay machine.
"I hated that machine. Because as a DJ, it gave me no flexibility at all. You couldn't even pause on it and you couldn't start from, you know, the second verse or whatever. All it could do was play something from the beginning, so if we were rehearsing and they'd be like, 'Let's start over from the second chorus,' I'd be like, 'Stupid machine.' But it was extremely reliable. So for that reason everybody felt confident about having that as the backbone of the music on the show. So for the first year I was touring with Kanye, my setup was an Instant Replay on the right with all my instrumental tracks, and then I had one or two turntables and a mixer with Serato which I would just use for scratching and little transitions and effects and things that I would do on top. And I had to negotiate for a long time, like: 'Guys trust me, we can do the whole show on Serato.'

The Rane SL 1 coupled with Serato Scratch Live is the ultimate solution for bridging the analog world of vinyl and the digital world of computer audio files. Using regular turntables or CD players, you can scratch and mix files from your computer's hard drive, add in a live mic input for scratching, and even bypass to standard vinyl if you wish. Scratch Live is the complete digital solution for the vinyl junkie -- take your entire collection wherever you go and leave your precious vinyl at home!The SL 1 interface connects one or two standard vinyl or CD turntables to your computer. This extremely rugged, portable, high quality, bus-powered USB interface features two switchable phono or line inputs, a microphone input, two line outputs, and pass thru outputs for the phono/line and mic.The included 12" vinyl records each have a Serato exclusive and unique control signal which allows Scratch Live to track the motion of the record, simulating the same movement with digital audio. Due to Serato's proprietary control scheme, the result is a feel and sound indistinguishable from playing vinyl. As a producer and DJ, the track you finished today can be played on a real turntable tonight.The SL 1 System includes the following: 2b1af7f3a8
