The bar has once again been lowered for anyone looking to called themselve’s a "DJ". Stanton has announced their new touch sensitive controller DaScratch which promises a fully portable interface capable of controlling, scratching, and manipulating audio.
DaScratch complements any laptop and is fully compatible with Traktor, Ableton Live, Serato Scratch Live, other MIDI compatible software.
"The tactile buttons, triggers, and virtual faders can also control samples, pitch, effects, cue and loop points, and other mappable functions. Multiple finger touches can even prompt quick kills on EQ’s or transform effects on volume."
Stanton DaScratch carries a retail price of $299 and should be available to consumers sometime in October.
