This week, one winner gets the Traktor Scratch Duo, a new two-deck digital DJ hub with MIDI and time-code control and based on the Traktor Pro platform. For folks who want to “spin” digital tracks on vinyl and CD, it provides the software and hardware to fuse analog and digital with features like auto-syncing, looping, integrated EQs and filters, etc. And, as the folks at Native Instruments add:
Automatic beat-gridding in combination with the “Sync Lock” function makes sure that the tracks never drift out of sync, giving users more time to focus on the creative aspects of digital mixing. Extensive “Crate Flick” cover artwork support also allows users to visually browse music libraries in an especially efficient way…
Two performance effects sections offer six studio-quality algorithms including DJ standards like flanger, delay, reverb and more. To give DJs convenient control over their performance, the DUO versions also offer state-of-the-art MIDI controller integration, and come with mappings for all relevant hardware controllers on the market.
Take a look at DJ Craze & DJ Klever testing out the gear. Both recently adopted Traktor as their DJ platform.
It looks like this when not in use:
