DJ RAFIK

"Whoever likes to scratch records likes to keep things precise. Traktor Scratch adresses this with an incredible responsiveness. The sound quality has amazed me and the performance is super stable. Scratching with multiple decks at the same time, no matter how detailed you get with it, it never misses a single bit. Traktor Scratch is like intuitive science."

DJ SHIFTEE

"As a turntablist, nothing matters more to me than the feel and sound of my records. Traktor Scratch, more than anything else on the market, gives me the vinyl response and touch that I absolutely need to have. Combine this with crazy features like midi-assignable, in-program effects, and you really have an unparalleled digital DJing system.”

"In the last 6 months, TRAKTOR and the X1 have unlocked so many possibilities I never thought possible while DJing with turntables. The ability to edit and effect tracks so effortlessly has taken my creative possibilities to the max and allowed me to make the most of every situation. Without TRAKTOR SCRATCH and the X1, 2010 wouldn't have been as wonderful. You made my dreams come true."

CARL CRAIG

"Traktor was a replacement for using Serato, the sound was a bit sharper and more immediate. Traktor gives me the opportunity to definitely be more creative than when I was only using CD players or turntables. In some cases the spontaneity is a lot stronger too."
