We completed an integration of an SL-2 Serato Box by Rane with a Denon DJ Mixer recently. Overall an easy custom project for us at Repair DJ Gear. Below are the steps necessary to properly identify the Denon X1500 DJ Mixer channels designated for Serato inputs and outputs.

Step 1: Layout DJ Hardware.

Connect Turntables or CD Players to appropriate channels on mixer in relation to layout of hardware. (E.G. If turntable 1 is on left side, connect turntable 1 on Channel 1 Phono1/Line1) The same follows for CD Players or Digital Players.
