Stanton’s DaScratch Helps Kill Vinyl

Stanton’s DaScratch Helps Kill Vinyl

  • 26 september 2008

Vinyl is dead. Long live vinyl! Now, it pains me to report this, because records are great, but it seems like it may be the end of the road for the media format (at least as far as a DJ staple). Stanton has released the DaScratch media controller which is one of many new ways to control digital music. The multi-functional device lets DJ’s control playback of music files using popular programs, including Serato, Traktor and Ableton. DaScratch can manipulate music files like a traditional turntable but also adds in effects, eq controls and loop trigger buttons. Look for more devices like this to become the new standard for DJs, as they open up new creative possibilities.
