Rane Serato Control Vinyl Second Edition (Purple) Side A: 10 minutes plus vinyl select area. Side B: 15 minutes
The Rane Serato Control Vinyl Second Edition (Purple) colored vinyl records are different from the first edition (CV01) in two ways:
Firstly, the records are mastered on much better equipment than the original, and do not suffer from any noticeable pitch variation (0.0026% max).
Secondly, the absolute positioning signal (APS) used in these special edition colored vinyl records differ from the CV01 enabling the software to distinguish which version of the vinyl is being used, and even which side is playing! The second edition is obvious from the red band on the upper right corner of the sleeve. The label on the vinyl, besides being marked CV02, has large A and B markings to easily tell between the 10:00 and 15:00 sides.
Scratch LIVE software version 1.2 and higher is required to use the second edition vinyl.
