Serato Scratch LIVE and DJ users can now play and scratch tracks faster with this custom designed keyboard cover. Each button is color coded to take advantage of Scratch LIVE and DJ’s extensive keyboard shortcuts for both the left and right decks, including control and alt key combinations.

A personal favourite around the office is control + Z. This is used to undo the latest track load which is good if you load a track to the wrong deck or eject a track accidentally. If you are using REL or ABS mode when using turntables or CDJ's, pressing control + Z will load the previous track and continue to play it from its original position when you accidentally ejected. This has saved a couple of lives for sure.

  • Note: Support for Mac OS X 10.5.8 has been dropped in Scratch Live 2.5. IMPORTANT: Please read this known issue before updating to Scratch Live 2.5 Rane Sixty-Eight Manual Rane Sixty-Two Manual Rane Sixty-One Manual Rane SL 4 Manual Rane SL 3 Manual Rane SL 2.

I stream less tracks then the average user, (im sure you will verify that by running my account) which makes me more profitable than regular listeners, as i purchase a family subscription despite being one user.

NOTE If the option 'playback keys use shift' is enabled on the setup screen all playback keys require either shift or caps lock to be pressed.The shortcuts described are the keys on a US keyboard. On other keyboards these key positions may be labelled differently.

For example, [control] on Windows is equivalent to [Command] on Mac OS X. Similarly, [Alt] on Windows means [Option] on Mac OS X.

NOTE For some Keyboard Shortcuts such as Load the highlighted song to a deck (shift + left or right arrows), control can be used as a substitute for shift.
