ADVANCED SETUP



MICROPHONES


The Rane One offers 2 Microphone inputs (connections at the rear panel) and various controls at the front panel for both of them. Both Microphone inputs are not part of the USB Audio Interface, and cannot be included in VirtualDJ Audio setup. None of the Mic controls of the device will control mic-related VDJ actions or GUI buttons and vice-versa.
Even though all Mic controls of Rane One send Midi messages and could be assigned to any VDJ script action, it is strongly advised not to do so, as the hardware operation will still apply.

Timecode (DVS)


VirtualDJ is offering DVS (Digital Vinyl System) support for the Rane One. A Timecode Plus or Pro Infinity license is required. 2 Timecode Inputs are available to control any software decks via Timecode CDs or Vinyls.

Both Mixer Channels can accept LINE (Timecode CDs) or PHONO Sources (Timecode Vinyls) depending on the CD/PH switchers at the rear panel of the unit.



Live Inputs


The same Inputs as the one used for Timecodes, can be used as Live Inputs and route their audio signal to a VirtualDJ Deck (to apply Effects etc).



Back to back


The Rane One has two USB ports, allowing simultaneous connection of two computers. Each port is completely independent. It is possible to run VirtualDJ on one computer and any other DJ-software on the other, Mac or PC.

How to:

Recording


The Rane One has a dedicated Input to record your Main Mix. VirtualDJ has pre-configured this input for recording, thus no special setting is required in order to record your mix (including analogue sources and Microphone).
Use the REC or BSCAST buttons from the MASTER center panel of the VirtualDJ GUI to Record or Broadcast your mix.
