Stanton SCS.4DJ Reviews4.5/5.0 based on 1 customer review
When I saw that this arrived I just had to try it out. Seriously, the setup time for this thing took less time than opening the box itself. I plugged it in, hit the power button, and was up and running in seconds using some of the included tracks. Having a turntablist background, I quickly loaded one of the "scratch" tracks, set the digital crossfader to a sharp cut-off, and was cutting and scratching with ease. As a vinyl DJ, I was impressed with the weighted platters. The built in software, while not as robust as dedicated computer software, seems to cover all of the bases needed to rock a serious set. You don't even need a laptop! Just plug in your USB thumb drive and headphones and go! I want one now!

Amazingly Simple yet Amazingly Awsome!I've been a dj for about 17 years and grew with the technology involved. Going from being a turntablist to a cd-dj, then computer-dj to this. I've worked on various platforms, used various brands and types of equipment and this is purely stunning.
The ease of adapting to this product due to the familiarity, yet immediatly recognizing where this one prevails over where others fail, in itself was impressing. This simplistic design, yet feature filled machine will help you focus on the show/gig, with out "discovering" a new trick to bring back an old technique. The touch jogwheel is facinating, and the devices ability to beat match extremely accurately on its own is incredible.
The best part, is that it is extremely light. I, at this moment, have a usb keyboard, and a 16gb thumbdrive connected and i am set for hours and hours.
The sync button, true rotary kills, and system navigation are a plus.
My only complaint, which this particular device is not alone in, is the lack of file organization for the music in your storage device. What I mean by that, is the fact that you have to rely on one large list of songs, or playlists you've made to simplify navigation. Not a huge deal, however I preferr folder tree navigation, due to genre segregation, over playlists.
