RANE has officially entered the controller market with the release of the ONE. Similar to the design of the TWELVE, the ONE aims to satisfy the needs of turntablists while providing the convenience of a portable, all-in-one piece of tech.
The ONE features motorized platters with 7.2-inch removable acrylic disks. The mixer section features an adjustable crossfader, allowing scratchers to fine-tune their experience. Each deck has eight RGB pads and includes the Scratch Bank feature recently added to Serato DJ Pro, which allows users to easily load scratch samples or full tracks to either deck.
In related news, Serato has announced their latest update, Serato DJ Pro 2.4.4. This update provides support for the RANE ONE and will be available on their website at 12 PM PST.

In this episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx takes a first look at Ortofon’s new VNL cartridges, designed with turntablists in mind. They’re currently available in an introductory pack containing one cartridge and three stylii, allowing users to decide which of the three available stylus options they prefer.
Plus, he reviews the incredibly bling 24-karat gold-plated headshells from Smokin Shells, which pretty much fall into the “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” category.

The DJM-V10-LF’s crossfader has been removed in exchange for longer channel faders with optimized curves and a new custom-designed curve preset to ensure smooth and accurate mixes. This allows the new 60 mm shaft slide faders on the DJM-V10-LF to extend further down the top plate than the 45 mm faders on the original mixer. This development enables users to control the audio source volume from each channel more precisely.
