The TRAKTOR SCRATCH A6 is Native Instruments flagship digital vinyl system with the worlds first Remix Decks in TRAKTOR PRO 2.5, and a 6 channel audio interface for use in the studio or the club.

Professional Digital Vinyl System
TRAKTOR SCRATCH A6 is the straight-up digital vinyl system for spinning MP3s using super-tight vinyl and CD control. The included TRAKTOR AUDIO 6 interface, timecode vinyl and CDs, and the flagship TRAKTOR software provide pro credentials at a very attractive price.

TRAKTOR SCRATCH A6 is designed for DJs who need rock-solid performance, amazing audio quality and incredible ease of use. The included TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2.5 software with Remix Decks allows for a new level of creativity - seamlessly merge the worlds of DJing and live performance.

TRAKTOR PRO software is world-renowned by top DJs of all genres for its rock-solid four-deck operation, and its straightforward usability - it gets you mixing straight out the box. Now the latest TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 version seamlessly merges the world of DJing and live performance via the innovative Remix Decks. Building on the feature set of the previous version - TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 pushes the boundaries of creativity yet again.

Remix Decks allow for spectacular live remixing and improvisation. Switch any (or all) regular track decks in TRAKTOR to a Remix Deck, and you have access to a powerful loop suite made up of 64 slots- build and save your own Remix Set and add to it later.

Connect up to three stereo sources simultaneously. The two included phono preamps allow the connection of two turntables so you can digitize your vinyl collection in highest quality or record other external audio sources.

Even with two stereo channels routed to your external DJ mixer, the convenient front stereo input and output is perfectly tailored for DJs who wish to use TRAKTOR effects as send and return FX units on their mixer. In addition, they offer extra flexibility if you're DJing with TRAKTOR's Sample Decks and Loop Recorder.

Besides premium sound quality, low latency and ultimate connectivity, this interface also boasts many other advanced features specifically designed for club use:

The convenient status LEDs on the upper panel give instant visual feedback on input and output activity, so you know if your setup is hooked up and working correctly. Now it's also possible to run the TRAKTOR AUDIO 6 via its power supply only, as a "Direct Thru" unit. This means the soundcard is capable of passing through a signal from other equipment (turntables / CD players) without being connected to your computer - so switching between DJs or different setups is finally made simple - perfect for permanent club installations.

Native Scratch Technology
The newly developed Native Scratch technology features TRAKTOR SCRATCH MK2 timecode vinyl and CD control for the next step in tight timecode performance. Spin super-precise 2kHz control signal on 120g vinyl - it feels just like your digital track was cut to a 12-inch - and with the innovative vinyl marker stickers you get clear visual reference at all times. Alternatively, use your CDJs with TRAKTOR MK2 timecode in relative mode, and stay ahead of the competition - use TRAKTOR's loops and hot cues and your CDJs' cue and manual looping functionality, and get the best out of both systems.

Designed for Traktor Pro with STEMS
The latest version of Traktor Pro Software is STEMS ready. A Stem file is an open, multi-channel audio file that contains a track split into four musical elements – bass, drums, vocals, and melody for example. With each element available independently, you can mix in ways that just weren’t possible until now. With Stems fully supported by the included flagship TRAKTOR software, each of these TRAKTOR controllers are pre-mapped and designed for playing with Stems right out of the box. You can get mixing with Stems right away with a 1.5 GB package of free Stems tracks. Derived from selected MASCHINE expansions, these 65 Stems tracks cover a wide range of tempos and genres ranging from techno, house, and funk, to trap, drum and bass, dubstep and more.
