Digitale DJ-Systeme müssen nicht teuer sein.

Schaack Audio hat die Version 2.0 ihres digitalen DJ-Systems DVS Quad veröffentlicht, auch Quadscratch genannt. Das System für XP, Vista und OS X kostet rund 110 Euro. Dafür bekommt man die Software und vier Timecode-Vinyle. Das System arbeitet mit praktisch jeder Soundkarte, die man natürlich haben, bzw. extra kaufen muss. Trotzdem ein sehr preisgünstiges System. Hier die Übersicht der Features:

Open architecture:

-Compatible with any soundcard (Windows: ASIO driver required).
– Software RIAA Phono pre-amplification allows connecting turntables directly to Line Inputs on the soundcard.
– Nearly every parameter is MIDI controllable.
– Totally configurable audio routing.
– Easy MIDI Learn.
– Compatible with nearly all MIDI Controllers on the market (accepts CC & Note On/Off MIDI messages).
– MIDI feedback for endless rotary MIDI controllers or motorized fader MIDI controllers.
– Resizable and completely user-configurable GUI: Channels may be shown/hidden, EQ/Filter/asf. may be shown/hidden.

Total control:

– 1-4 decks may be used to control 1-4 tracks (MP3s/WAVs).
– Custom Vinyl Tracking algorithm provides a near-analog scratch experience.
– Perfect tempo-synchronization of up to 4 tracks using SYNC.
– Powerful 1-deck support (one single turntable may be used to mix up to 4 tracks).
– Virtual Zero Lock Range makes pitch 0 really 0 and virtually eliminates the “resting point” at pitch 0 on old turntables.
– Recording the mix as .WAV during mixing is possible.
– Keyboard shortcuts allow using Quad without touching the mouse.
– Preview Player for fast pre-listening of tracks on Headphones.

Advanced sound processing:

– Fresh sounding filters (X-Filter, SVF).
– 3-band Equalizers with parametric mids from 100Hz to 10kHz.
– Tempo-matched FX (Flanger, Phaser, Echo, Delay, LFO Filter, …).
– Tempo-matched Loop Samplers.
– Any audio material (real Vinyl / CDs / Mic / …) may be routed from the soundcard’s inputs into Quad for mixing and FX-processing.
– Crossfader with 3 curves.
– Support for VST plugins (Windows only at the moment).
– Look-ahead limiters on each output avoid audible audio distortions when signal becomes too hot.

Managing your tunes:

– New, improved browser.
– ID3 Tags are editable.
– Create cases of your favourite tunes and music styles.
– 4 assignable Cue Points per track.
