Rane has announced the Rane TTM57mkII, a new mixer for Serato software, here at NAMM 2015. The successor to the legendary Rane TTM57, the Rane TTM57mkII “stays true to its original design with a familiar workflow, while improving performance and software integration that the Rane TTM57 is renowned for” according to the news release.
One of the notable new additions on the new model are dual USBs for easy switching over between two Serato DJs with their own laptops, while new software controls include “silicone RGB backlit pads for triggering four cue points per deck or the SP-6 sampler; classic joystick controls to toggle slip, instant doubles, internal mode, censor, and transform; and dedicated auto-loop and loop roll controls with backlit buttons and intuitive Serato DJ iZotope FX controls”.
So there you go – there’s life in the Serato/Rane partnership yet. Of course we’ll be bringing you a video talkthrough of the new model from here just as soon as we battle through the crowds.
• The Rane TTM57mkII will be available in the second quarter of 2015 for US$1749. Check out our talkthrough video.
