Native Instruments Traktor Scratch A6 and A10 Announced
Traktor Scratch A6 is a digital vinyl system so you can pretend that your MP3s are vinyls. Mixing old school with new school, if you’re used to spinning vinyls like it’s 1999, Traktor Scratch A6 is right up your street. It means you can still look super cool old school, without having to lug about a bunch of heavy vinyls. This also reduces the risk of drunken idiots ruining your precious black beauties. However, it does mean that you can’t use them as frisbees in the case of a sudden zombie attack.
The A6 is the tightest MP3 spinner to date – you can hook it up in a jiffy (Who said jiffy? We said jiffy.) and it includes the exceptionally cool Remix Decks, meaning you can arrange track parts on the fly. It even has full on iTunes and iPod compatibility and Crate Flick cover art browsing so selecting tunes is ridiculously easy.
Oh, why’s it called Traktor Scratch A6? It comes with a DJ audio interface that features 6 inputs, 6 outputs and 2 high quality stereo phono preamps. Ooft.
Take everything that we mentioned above and improve it somewhat, and you have the Traktor Scratch A10. The A10 is a premium 4 deck digital vinyl system, complete with a DJ audio interface featuring (yep, wait for it…) 10 inputs, 10 outputs and FOUR high quality stereo phono preamps. Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
The beauty of both these systems are, most importantly, that they FEEL like your MP3s are cut to vinyl, and that’s what it’s all about. Especially if you’re used to spinning with vinyl. So, whatever it is you want to do to create your own individual sound, look no further.
Let’s round this up for you – basically, if you’re used to vinyl set-ups but want to reduce the amount of stuff you have to carry, at the same time as having a much more innovative DJ set-up, the Traktor Scratch A6 or A10 are for YOU.
