The Rane SL 1 and SL 3 interfaces allow you to connect your CD-Js (or vinyl) turntables to your computer -- which gives you the benefit of using computer files or tracks -- while still allowing you to mix and scratch. When you purchase the interface, you are given two control vinyl records and control CDs, but sometimes these products get scratched or damaged. With the control CDs, you can burn them using your CD burner on your computer after downloading the proper files from Rane's website.

- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- Burner application/CD burner
Go to Rane.com. Highlight the tab on the left side that says "DJ Products." Highlight "Serato Scratch Live," then select "SL 1 Interface" or "SL 3 Interface."
Download the ScratchLiveControl.zip from the website, which is linked in blue as "the big control file (132MB)." You need an unzip utility to open the file, Scratchlivecontrol.zip.
Drop Scratchlivecontrol.wav (one of the files) into any burner application. Make sure you select the correct track select option because the second track requires a special start time. Do not adjust levels and disable auto-levelling. Down-sampling or using another format will cause the control signal not to function.
Use Sony CD Architect (if you have this program) to burn the file "scratchlivecontrol.cdp." Using Sony CD Architect automatically incorporates the special start time for the second track.
