Presenting
Final Scratch

A true gear-head at heart, our beloved progressive Plastikman is on the cusp of something huge. In cahoots with the creators at N2IT Development, as well as long-time partner and fellow techno DJ, John Acquaviva, he has adopted Final Scratch, an exciting evolution in DJ mixing technology. With Final Scratch, the DJ is finally able to play digital music live in conjunction with his or her analog, “two-turntables-and-a-mixer” setup. Already on the road with Hawtin and Acquaviva, the Final Scratch system is bound to eradicate the barrier that’s been keeping DJs from crossing over into the digital realm — it allows them to take their burned tracks, or any digital music files, and send them to an interface which then relays the song to a dubplate that can be played on any normal turntable. With this technology, a DJ can perform while armed only with a laptop computer loaded with a library of his or her chosen MP3 files. The DJ is able to “scratch,” mix, and control the pitch of any digital music file by using a special Final Scratch blank record. It responds to the touch exactly like a conventional record and can be played alongside any vinyl — the DJ can switch back and forth between digital file playback and normal records!

Special benefits include:
• Simple plug-and-play technology.
• It allows the DJ to use his or her existing equipment.
• You can switch between both analog records and digital files.

For the universe’s traveling and bedroom DJs,
Final Scratch has the potential to change all standards of performance.

Just imagine:
• Sifting through crates and crates of records takes as
little time as scrolling down a list of songs, or simply doing a “search.”
• Using Final Scratch’s databank to store recorded tracks means DJs can actually leave their records at home!
• DJs can stay ahead of the competitive game, playing unreleased music and MP3s easily on their basic turntables.
• Producer/DJs can write a track in the studio, burn it into their laptop, and debut it that same night!

No more waiting for acetates (that degrade over time anyway) and expensive vinyl pressings!
Poised and ready to take on the world, Richie Hawtin may very well change the face of live DJ mixing as we know it by connecting analog to the digital realm.
