How come DJs get this one, I'm sure it must have applications in controlling other MIDI gear too? Da Scratch looks great and has really excellent implementations of gesture, multi-touch and buttons in a low profile, compact package. Here's the product blurb, but do take a look at the video. See Me, Feel Me - DaScratch's layout and portability provide DJs with an unmatched level of performance and control. The StanTouchâ„¢ 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 - Magnect connection system allows multiple DaScratch units to securely snap together, creating a larger control surface with increased performance options. Teach Me - DaRouter software gives DaScratch a little brain of its own, allowing customized support for a variety of applications. DaRouter runs on Mac / PC and will automatically load presets that are tailored towards the application the SCS.3d is controlling. A generic preset is also provided for mapping to any application that supports MIDI learn. To learn more about the router and presets, click here. Connect Me - USB connection for easy plug and play connection to your software. Class compliant with Windows XP, Vista and Mac OSX to ensure that drivers are never needed. Bus powered by design to ensure that no external power or batteries need to be used. $299 List.
