Stanton unveils DaScratch touch DJ pad

updated 11:25 am EDT, Fri September 19, 2008

Stanton DaScratch

Stanton for the first time released a touch-sensitive device through DaScratch, a new advanced MIDI control pad. The device centers around a large, central touchpad that replicates the functions of analog DJ controllers and lets DJs scratch or scrub as well as use the device as though it were a multi-touch notebook trackpad. All the buttons and faders to adjust the final output have similarly been replaced with touch-sensitive controls and will recognize multi-tap commands to quickly bring down a sound level or apply an effect.

The new musician's tool attaches to a Mac or Windows PC through USB and centers around a DaRouter app that serves as a bridge between the DaScratch and third-party live DJ tools such as Ableton Live or Traktor. DJs can use the app to customize the particular actions of the touch controls with certain effects in the relevant software. Stanton provides its own reference pack for the software to get owners started.

The DaScratch should be available almost immediately for $299.
