DescriptionStanton’s FinalScratch v1.5 brings a host of exciting features to Stanton’s award-winning digital DJ system. FinalScatch lets users play digital music files from analog turntables or CD players. Powered by Traktor FS, this version is the first to run natively on Windows XP (no Linux required) and Mac OS 10.3 "Panther." Both versions offer the special key correction function, which maintains the pitch when changing tempo. Version 1.5 also offers resizing of the user interface and improved overall performance. For Mac users, the improvements mean that you can import all your iTunes and the system can support external hard drives and CD-ROMs.
Imagine having an endless supply of records to spin all night long... You can even needle drop MP3 files until your hands go numb! For all of those DJs who have stayed true to their roots with their love of vinyl, now you can look into the future of digital DJ-ing without fear. Finally you can cut, spin, scratch and even needle drop MP3s (and other audio files such as .WAV) without losing total control.
Final Scratch works the same way any DJ traditionally uses vinyl records... because it is vinyl. Final Scratch is the only system on the market that allows needle dropping and total manipulation of your audio source and we mean TOTAL CONTROL. No extra controller needed and no extra steps to take. Just click to change audio files instead of changing actual records, then cue and play as normal. Using any standard turntable and cartridge. Final Scratch will work with any 2-channel mixer that has phono/line inputs. There’s nothing extra you have to buy or do in order to have an endless supply of music to spin. All you need is your own PC or a Mac and the Final Scratch package.
Version 1.5 of makes the revolutionary digital DJ system finally compatible with Windows XP, while at the same time adding lots of functionality over the previous Linux version. A major new feature is the "Key Correct" function, which allows DJs to change tempo while preserving the original pitch of the track.
