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.

As with any modern digital DJ device, it’s important to keep up with firmware updates. On this episode of Tips and Tricks, DJcityTV’s Mojaxx takes a quick look at the beta firmware update for Rane’s SEVENTY-TWO mixer. The update was recently released in conjunction with the public beta of Serato DJ Pro 2.1.
Fresh off of hosting DJcity’s “Bastid’s BBQ” at SXSW in March, Skratch Bastid linked up with Serato to cook up a routine using Rane’s new SEVENTY-TWO mixer and TWELVE controller. The devices were released Wednesday in conjunction with Serato DJ Pro’s 2.0.2 update.
After hitting SWSW, Skratch Bastid will be taking “Bastid’s BBQ” to Toronto and Calgary this summer.

After weeks of leaks and speculation, Rane has announced two new products: the SEVENTY-TWO mixer and the TWELVE controller. They are the first products the company has announced since its acquisition by industry giant inMusic in 2016.
The SEVENTY-TWO is a two-channel battle mixer which features a pair of USB ports, and a 4.3-inch color touch screen. The screen shows Serato DJ’s moving waveforms and cue points and enables track browsing and loading. It also controls the mixer’s two internal FX engines as well as software FX.
In terms of build, the SEVENTY-TWO retains the solid steel construction of previous Rane mixers. It also includes the company’s new Mag Three contactless tension-adjustable technology for both the crossfader and upfaders. A set of 16 MPC-style performance pads offers a host of different modes and allows independent controls for each deck.
The TWELVE is a 12-inch motorized platter controller for Serato DJ. It was designed to offer DJs the comfort and precision of vinyl control without skipping needles or feedback issues. The TWELVE is laid out exactly like a traditional turntable for a familiar experience but connects directly to a computer via USB.
The TWELVE features a touch strip for track scrubbing, which can also be switched to control cue points. It has a selectable pitch range, as well as 33 1/3 and 45 rpm speed options, and a rotary motor-off switch to emulate powering down a regular turntable. Each TWELVE can control up to four virtual decks in Serato DJ via a selection switch, and up to four units can be used simultaneously with the software.
It has a 5.0 kfcm high-torque motor with an optional lower torque setting for a more classic feel, and 3,600 ticks of platter resolution for high performance.
Although there are dedicated ports for the TWELVE on the SEVENTY-TWO mixer, the controller can be used with any Serato DJ hardware.
The SEVENTY-TWO and TWELVE are set to have a street price of $1,899 and $799 USD, respectively. Both products are due to ship in Q4 2017.

Rane has announced that it will introduce two new products at this year’s DJ Expo, which will take place August 14-17 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
According to their press release, “The same engineering team that set the standards for Rane’s rock-solid performance-based mixers has been collaborating with world-class DJs and their crews to develop new DJ performance tools, the likes of which the industry has never been seen before. Rane calls these unprecedented new products Battle Ready.”
Rane has been a leading manufacturer of DJ mixers since its founding in 1981. In 2016, the company was sold to inMusic, the parent company of Numark, Denon, Akai, and M-Audio.
DJ Expo, which is run by DJ Times Magazine, features 25 educational seminars, an exhibit hall of gear, and three evenings of sponsored events.
