Scratch Sublime
TRAKTOR SCRATCH is the professional DJ system allowing you to spin your digital track collection on vinyl or CD turntables. It includes intuitive software, special timecoded vinyl control records and CDs, two professional multi-core connection cables, and AUDIO 8 DJ - a high-end audio interface built specifically for DJs.

If you're thinking of switching to Traktor Scratch, there's never been a better time. See note below.*

Rock-solid and reliable, and featuring Instant Connect plug and play usability, every element is master crafted by the Native Instruments team in Berlin, Germany. The result is TRAKTOR SCRATCH - the perfect fusion of analog confidence and feel with the freedom and potential of digital. Never before has technology had so much soul.

Superior Sounds
AUDIO 8 DJ is the ultimate audio interface for DJs, and the pulsing heart of TRAKTOR SCRATCH. This pro-quality 24-bit/96kHz interface with ultra high-end Cirrus Logic AD-DA converters is unique in the field - a dedicated DJ soundcard that surpasses every audio expectation.

Four hi-gain stereo outputs gives you the potential for two main decks routed from the TRAKTOR software, plus two extra stereo outputs fed by TRAKTOR SCRATCH's send effects. Along with four stereo inputs, MIDI I/O and multiple status LEDs, the AUDIO 8 DJ is built on a metal chassis and is wrapped in a robust and compact design. This box of audio dynamite is ready for any situation.

Pure Vinyl Feeling
TRAKTOR SCRATCH closes the gap between digital and analog DJing. The timecode is formatted onto special CDs and vinyl, and has an unmatched response - it feels like the digital file is cut into the wax. Pressed onto 120g vinyl, each disc contains one side with 17 minutes of timecode, plus a flip side with deeper cut grooves for turntablists and scratch DJs. A special track allows you to scroll through your collection and select your next tune using only the turntable- with no need to touch your computer.

Easy Set Up
It's never been easier to spin digital. TRAKTOR SCRATCH is designed for maximum plug and play usability, and comes with two revolutionary color-coded connector cables grouping all necessary connections into one pro quality audio cable. One click per deck and you're ready to rock the house- (additionally you can route send effects with two further connections). Simple and intuitive to set up, AUDIO 8 DJ also features LED's indicating the status of every connection - giving you instant error detection and individual level meters that make setting up in any environment effortless.

Total Reliability
TRAKTOR SCRATCH is built using the TRAKTOR software engine - hugely experienced in the digital DJing world, and a mark of quality and functionality. Each component of the system is crafted by the same experienced hand, and built to work in total harmony together. Rock-solid, ready and reliable, when the crowd puts their trust in the DJ, you can put your trust in TRAKTOR SCRATCH.

The TRAKTOR SCRATCH software is based on the powerful TRAKTOR 3 engine, but specifically tweaked for turntable/CD DJs.

TRAKTOR SCRATCH is connected via two revolutionary TRAKTOR SCRATCH multi core cables that ensure easy set up in any situation. The multi core cables route all necessary channels and are connected via a professional XLR jack- meaning you can be ready to go in two simple clicks.

  • Vista compatibility
    • Native Instruments has seen good results in its compatibility testing with Windows Vista 32-bit. NI products generally operate without specific problems or limitations under this operating system. However, Windows XP is currently still recommended for professional music production due to its proven reliability and compatibility, especially for a productive environment where these aspects are crucial.
    • Windows Vista 64-bit is currently not recommended by Native Instruments for professional music production due to a lack of compatible applications and hardware drivers. Native Instruments will continue to evaluate the Vista 64-bit platform and further developments regarding relevant third-party music production software that are interoperable with NI products.
    • For more information, visit the Native Instruments website for a full FAQ on Windows Vista and Native Instruments software.

    They Got It!

    By jesseplan

    from St. Louis, MO

    I have been lucky enough to purchase a pre-release copy of this software... WOW... I have used both Serato and past releases of Traktor DJ Studio and Finalscratch 2.0. This blows all of those out of the water. It has a plethora added options that Serato cannot touch. Out of the box, it is the best built vynil emulation program available. Great response with CD or vynil, this new software from Native Instruments is AWESOME! I only gave it a 4.0 on the features because the release of "Traktor DJ Studio 3.3" will be compatible with the "Audio 8" that comes with "Traktor Scratch"... this will add all the options of DJ Studio to the accuracy and speed of Traktor Scratch. Don't be fooled by the competition, this new release cannot be beaten, period.
