Hey is anyone using the Rane sixty-four mixer as a sound card?
Midi control with Ableton? and/or with Serato something like the Bridge?

Any experience and opinions would be appreciated.

Thinking about Midi functions and audio quality

Thanks

Would like to know about the sound quality of the A/D converters and overall audio quality?

Im reading that bridge will only activate with 32 bit with 8.4.7 or higher. when I updated it said 8.4.7 was running but when I open Ableton its opening in 8.2.7 I just installed Serato DJ and I have the Rane 62 also but cant get Bridge to open in Serato. Is there any online guides to getting open? Im new to Serato and the Rane mixer but know Ableton well, up through 8 atleast lol.

Serato DJ... It's Serato Scratch that Bridge runs with....

It's over bar the shouting, the Bridge Forum in Serato's forum has been abandoned...

Actually in this video https://vimeo.com/102806141 Serato said that Bridge will be added to Serato DJ.

Skip to 43:35 for the question "Will there ever be a Bridge for Serato DJ?" and Serato's answer.

I have a 62 in my studio area. It's phenomenal.
Sound quality is up to typical Rane standards, and the construction is rock solid.
I will probably use it long after Rane drops support for it.
