The Stanton DaScratch is a digital DJ controller which lets you manipulate sounds on your computer with a flourish and a smile. It’s a USB connect, and once you’re hooked up, it’s just a matter of using the touch controls and digital sliders to mix and tweak sound, volume, tracks, scratching, dubbing and all kindsa cool stuff that I’m far too stupid to understand. Check out the video for more funky-down action. $249.99.
DaScratch’s compact and sleek profile makes it a space-friendly addition to any existing DJ gear set-up or can stand on its own as a complete controller solution. What makes this guy different from your average controller? Stanton’s StanTouch technology allows you to use traditional DJ-style motions and gestures on a touch-pad style surface to take full control over music and software applications such as Traktor DJ Studio, Traktor Scratch, Ableton Live, Serato Scratch Live, or any other MIDI compatible software. Minimal moving parts ensure durability from gig to gig.
