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.

Pioneer DJ has announced the DDJ-FLX6, a brand new four-channel controller supported in both rekordbox and Serato DJ Pro. The controller combines unique features and a professional club-style layout while staying portable and affordable.
The DDJ-FLX6 introduces Merge FX, a new feature that makes it easy for DJs to mix different music styles. The controller includes the Jog Cutter function that applies a professional scratch effect to the last Hot Cue or playback position on the deck in use and built-in presets containing a combination of Serato DJ Pro effects and looping controls. First introduced for the DJM-S11, the DDJ-FLX6 features Scratch Bank, which allows users to load scratch samples or full tracks for pad mode use.

Pioneer DJ has announced the DJM-S11 mixer, the successor to its game-changing DJM-S9. The two-channel, four-deck battle mixer builds off the success of the previous iteration with some major additions while improving on its predecessor’s key features.
Most notably, the DJM-S11 comes equipped with a 4.3-inch touch screen that displays waveforms, a track browser, FX, and more. The display has a day mode option, similar to that of Serato DJ Pro, which makes the screen easier to view in daylight. An industry-first feature called “Deck 3/4 Control” allows access to decks three and four via the touch screen, to enhance the creative possibilities of live mashups and remixes.
Another notable addition is that the mixer includes dual USB inputs for connecting CDJs and controllers. It features a number of new pad modes as well.
Pioneer DJ will also be releasing the DJM-S11-SE, a special edition that is visually reminiscent of their highly-regarded DJM-909 mixer.
The DJM-S11 is available now at a suggested retail price of $1,999 USD, while the DJM-S11-SE retails for $2,099 USD. In related news, Serato has released Serato DJ Pro 2.4.1, which includes support for the mixers.

Tips and Tricks host, Mojaxx, provides a walkthrough of Beatsource LINK’s new integration with Serato DJ, which was introduced in Serato DJ Pro 2.4 and 1.4 on Monday. He shows you how to set up LINK in Serato and get the most out of the service.

The Beatsource LINK streaming service for open-format DJs can now be used with the industry-standard performance software, Serato DJ. The highly anticipated integration is available in Serato DJ Pro 2.4 and Lite 1.4, which were released on Monday.
Launched in May, Beatsource LINK lets DJs stream tracks from the Beatsource library, including thousands of expertly curated playlists, directly from their DJ software.
A-Trak, renowned DJ/producer and Beatsource board member, says:
“It’s inevitable that DJs will need access to the massive streaming libraries of songs for their DJ sets. The important thing is to not force DJs to change the equipment or software that they use. That’s why Beatsource’s integration into Serato is so important. Also, what impressed me the most was the ability to create playlists on the Beatsource site as you’re searching for music and having them sync up to your Serato.”
Brian “DJ Quickie” Wong, president of Beatsource, adds:
“Lead by Serato in the early 2000’s, the transition from vinyl to digital changed DJing forever. Trailblazers like A-Trak, DJ AM, and Jazzy Jeff opened our minds to what Serato’s technology could allow us to do. Today, over 15 years later, we are living in a moment that will again change DJing forever. DJs no longer need to shop for, purchase, and store their music. Instead, DJs will simply access the Beatsource DJ library, which will be available instantly and everywhere with Serato, and the value will be in each DJs curation and knowledge of their personal playlists and crates. DJs will no longer be limited by what they can own and store, but rather by what they can do with their musical creativity. This opens up a world of imagination for the next generation of DJs, and I can’t wait to see what they do with our technology.”
Beatport LINK, which is based on the same technology as Beatsource LINK, is also now available in Serato DJ Pro 2.4 and Lite 2.4.
