NS7III 10 MINUTE SETThe talented DJ Mell Starr aka "The Most Dangerous" got 10 minutes on the upcoming #NS7III last week. This was his 2nd time touching the unit and it's a treat to see him cut on it and tell us his honest feedback.Pardon the shaky iPhone video. Despite that we thank customer DJ Gil Boogie for capturing the moment.For more info on the NS7III see: http://www.numark.com/product/ns7iiiPosted by Numark on Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Luckily, I also use Traktor and a controller so I wasn't left completely in the lurch. After I got home, I got online, determined to solve this problem. I searched forums and tech guides and eventually found out that USB 1.0 devices will not work properly on Core I series computers with USB 2.0 or higher specs. This is why the SL1 was discontinued.
Continuing to research, I finally discovered a solution (and a simple one at that) to the problem. A USB 2.0 hub will allow the SL1 to be read by the computer. I haven't had the issue since.
Another thing I discovered is that Serato should always be installed and run in Administrative mode. The program takes priority over the audio system, reading and writing to the hard drive (file permissions come into play here), a certain amount of memory and the processor. Another issue that this will help resolve is driver installation and sound card recognition. Rane SL boxes will not start up unless the drivers have been installed with elevated privileges and the software must be installed or started the same way in order for them to work properly. Installing the software in this way will avoid any issues but if you have already installed the software as a user then simply start the software in Administrative mode and the issues will be resolved.
These 2 tips have helped me get up and running with minimal effort and I haven't had issues since I adopted these techniques. I hope it helps you... Peace.
