      Stanton DaScratch Performance Control Surface (637014)
Availability:  


A totally different way to DJ at your fingertips.

The Stanton DaScratch performance control surface, a.k.a. the SCS.3d, gives any DJ ultimate control over their software of choice. Revolutionary and compact, the innovative DaScratch controller is part of the Stanton SC System DJ control line. DaScratch's small footprint and sleek profile make it a space-friendly addition to any existing DJ setup or an excellent stand-alone DJ controller.

Stanton's StanTouch technology allows you to use traditional DJ-style motions and gestures on DaScratch's touch-pad surface. This gives you 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 the Stanton DaScratch controller's durability from gig to gig.

See Me, Feel Me
DaScratch's layout and portability provide DJs with an extremely high level of performance and control. The StanTouch interface can be used for scratching, scrubbing, and navigating through digital audio. 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.

Hook Me Up
The Stanton SCS.3d's Magnect connection system securely snaps multiple DaScratch together, creating a larger control surface with increased performance options.

Teach Me
Stanton DaRouter software gives DaScratch a little brain of its own. It creates customized support for a variety of applications. DaRouter runs on Mac or PC computers and automatically loads presets that are tailored towards the application the SCS.3d is controlling. Stanton also provides DaScratch with a generic preset for mapping to any application that supports MIDI learn.

Connect Me
DaScratch has USB connection for easy plug-and-play connection to your software. Class compliant with Windows XP, Vista, and Mac OSX, it ensures that drivers are never needed, and being bus powered, there's no worry about external power or batteries.

The Stanton DaScratch's center section operates mainly in 3 different modes—Slider, Circle, and Button. These 3 different control layouts can be evoked by any of the mode buttons depending on how the DaRouter preset is programmed.

Slider Mode gives the user 3 variable controls (like faders) that can be used by sliding your finger up and down the areas next to the 3 LED meter bars. This mode can be used for controlling many parameters at once, such as an EQ. A slider may be changed by dragging a finger across the surface, or you can place your finger in an absolute position on the slider, and its position will jump immediately to that point. Two fingers may be used to trigger from one position to the next. For instance, holding one finger on the bottom of the slider and tapping the top with a second finger will make the slider generate the higher value for as long as that finger remains on the surface. Once the second (upper) finger is removed, the slider will generate the value indicated by the first finger position. This is referred to as as a "finger jump."

•In Circle Mode, there is one slider at the center of the circle, and a circular slider going around the perimeter of the touch surface. Just like in Slider mode, finger jumps are possible and can be performed to quickly change the parameter in real time. This is the mode most likely to be used to emulate the platter of a deck. Circle mode is also the default mode of SCS.3d DaScratch. That is to say that if you plug DaScratch into your computer without using the DaRouter software, it will operate in Circle mode. Keep in mind that without DaRouter, the Mode Selector buttons (VINYL, LOOP, etc.) will only send note data and will not change the operation of DaScratch.

•In Button Mode, the zones highlighted in the diagram will act as triggers to control buttons in the target application. For example, these functions could be assigned to alter loop lengths, jump to cue points, or start clips playing. Multiple buttons may be pressed at the same time in Button mode. Also, you will find some presets use a modified version of Button mode that makes the trigger areas bigger by combining 2 or more button zones.

StanTouch
In every mode of operation, you'll find that the touch-sensitive areas on the Stanton DaScratch will respond to multiple simultaneous touches. This is part of its core functionality, and indeed many cool behaviors and gestures can be developed around this capability.

Stanton DaScratch Performance Control Surface Features:

  • Virtual Gain and Pitch faders with 9 segment LEDs that provide instant visual feedback
    6 mode switch buttons - FX, EQ, Loop, Trig, Vinyl, Deck
    4 touch-sensitive trigger buttons

  • So much greatness in such a small package

    As reviewed by DeAndre C. on 3/24/2010

    This thing is amazing. Simply no complaints. From being a mixer, to drum machine, to turntable, it does everything that I want it to do.

  • Amazing!

    As reviewed by MMM on 10/5/2009

    This thing is amazing... I have 3 DaScratches and 1 DaMixer for my setup running 2 computers. The most notable thing to me is the touch sensitive crossfader and turntable surface... Being able to use a double finger technique means no more physical faders!!! The controller allows you to use multiple fingers to adjust ANY of the faders (i.e. You can put one finger on the left side of the crossfader and a second finger in the center and whenever you want to hear the right side for scracthing you hold the left finger down and tap the center... Get It? I am really looking forward to see Stanton develop more touchless usb controllers. And I know other competitors will do the same. The software is somewhat confusing but solid once you get it working. To the other user comment: M Audio Torq is not listed in the description so why would you assume that this worked with it? Some people are ignorant. What professional DJ would ever use Torq anyway? I would more than recommend this product to everyone because of its touch sensitive surface, the fact that it is BUTTON-LESS, and I could not imagine being a digital DJ without this...

  • Sweet toy

    As reviewed by Tim O'Hanlon on 11/4/2008

    This product is the first step in the digita revolution of the DJing industry. It is a lot of fun to use and very aesthetic. In terms of features and capabilities, dascratch's price is a bargain. I use traktor to create mixes and so far it can do everything that I want it to do except change tracks (which I heard it can do just haven't figured it out yet) and crossfade. This doesn't do EVERYTHING, but it is definitely a great bargain and lots of fun...plus everyone that sees it think it's the coolest thing they've ever seen.
