Turntable 2sday: TRAKTOR VS SERATO scratch comparison By DJ Qbert !!!
DJ Qbert himself puts the Serato's Scratch Live against Traktor's Scratch Pro in a head to head comparison dealing specifically with scratching.
Traktor is a Native Instruments product and is known for it four independent effects units and its advanced beat detection and Sync Lock for perfect mixing. Notables rockin' Traktor include DJ Craze, DJ Rafik, Carl Cox, and DJ Shiftee just to name a few. For the complete list of Traktor artists check out the Traktor website.
Serato Scratch Live comes to us from Rane, more notable for its mixers before Serato came along. Scratch Live is the industry standard as far as digital interfaces go with features including a SP-6 Sample Player and the next level video SL plug-in, which allows a DJ to scratch, mix, and manipulate audio/video files in real time. Some of the world's top DJs use Scratch Live including Sasha, Steve Aoki, A-trak, DJ Jazzy Jeff and even King Zulu Nation himself, Afrika Bambaataa.
