    Default Scratch Controllers ???

    Hey guys just wondering what you're opinions are for the best Scratch/turntablism midi controllers.

    I know lots of you fellas are crazy about the VCI-100s .... what are the other alternatives? Have any of you tried the Denon s3700

    I like the instant loop buttons. They would be good to add to a VCI mapping!
    And the CD-pause style slow motion sound trick sounded like a fun thing to play with.

    Nope, never seen one.

    You cant use that device to scratch with because it doesnt have touch sensitivity to tell traktor that you have put your finger on the vinyl and put it into scratch mode.

    Notice how he had to pause the deck to scratch ?

    Traktor expects scratch on and scratch off commands when your scratching when the deck is playing so it can reliably scratch.

    As it stands that thing is like scratching on a glorified BCD-3000

    Looks good, but my opinion (I have one) the jog wheels are far too small for scratching. Reloop controller looks interesting though.

    If I want to scratch I just use a turntable as External Deck in Traktor, so I would recommend Traktor scratch and some 1210's. Nothing comes close to proper decks for scratching IMO....yet!

    There are only 2 "scratch" controllers right now, the Numark NS7 and the Stanton SCS.1d. Everything else fails pretty miserably in one way or another.

    That NS7 kicks serious ass. I can definitely vouch for that one.
