Just got Final Scratch over Xmas.
If you have a laptop already, go with Final Scratch .... I promise you will not be disapointed. But if you don't have a laptop, you're probably better using a cd mixer, because otherwise that's a lot of $$$ to dish out.
Gotta say though, having now used Final Scratch for a while I'm gonna be transfering everything I have (including vinyl) onto the laptop and runnin that way. It's the dogs bollocks.
if i could use cd dex i would buy them.. but im fuckin terrible at using them so i use final scratch.. it is a fuckin miracle to have and its never crashed on me.. it just depends what laptop you have.
final scratch is good but only if you want the hassle of plugging all the shit in every time you go out to play... certainly is a pain in the ass for me...
if you can use cdj's then i'd stick to them to be honest
i think that final scratch is the best way my self but its up to u,i use it as a comparison to other tracks when im mixin down with cdj's u have to burn a cd 1st and its a wast plus im not cuttin every tune that gets send on the aim but its nice to see how the track fit in to my set plus i think soon every club will get fs soon enuff i know a lot of dj's use it and its a good tool to have in the studio
I love what Final Scratch enables you to do, but something about not being able to get HANDS ON with my music is weird ... technophobia maybe. I like what you can do with one CD deck hooked up next to technics, nuff CD dubs... Final Scratch aint going anywhere but, its very impressive.
its tha cost factor too. big outlay, but then cheaper tunes etc
I think the reaction time on pioneer cdj1000s is pretty crappy for scratching and the touch sensitive plate is a bit ropey, plus the fact it doesn't spin.
The denon one has a belt drive plate so that sucks a bit.
I'd give the technics ones a try when they arrive otherwise final scratch is the one.
yeah, i dont like how the cd deck goes all, i dunno, like when u try and line up the beat it just plays one little section looped.. and i cant line them up properly, maybe thats just me though.. but apart from that i didnt think the cd decks were that bad, though i havent used them to scratch.. and i havent used final scratch either
