Stanton Magnetics Final Scratch 2
User-review originally by bertrand16: here ( https://carte-son-dj.stanton-magnetics.audiofanzine.com/produits/avis/index%2Cidproduit%2C48333%2Cmao%2Cfinal_scratch_2.html )

- What technical features/characteristics motivated your choice?
Well I only heard good things about it: a scratch amp with unparalleled audio quality. I was already familiar with NI software, having used Traktor in the past, so I was used to the environment.

- For what use?
Mixing techno (MP3s are a lot less heavy than vinyl)

- What is your Setup (Mother Board/CPU/RAM/Disc,...)?
2048 ram ; intel core duo @1.46 Ghz ; dd : 160 go

- With what instruments or systems (console, preamp,DTD...) do you use it and what connection types are there ?
I use it with two vinyl power turntables, 1 cdj 500 , mix vestax pcv 275 , alesis effects air fx

UTILIZATION

- Did it install without any problems?
Yes there was a problem because I use Vista, after updating the drivers, Vista recognized the scratch amp without any problems.

- Were there any compatibility issues?
as stated above, a problem during installation of the drivers and connecting the scratch amp(wasn't recognized); another annoying issue with Vista is that when i close FS2 and want to re-open it, it gets stuck and Visa shuts it down, it's called "APPCRASH". I solved the problem by right-clicking on the FS2 icon in properties/compatibility/ checking "execute program in XP2 mode". Then right-click - execute as administrator.

GETTING STARTED

- Are the drivers stable?
Yes, but i haven't been using it long enough to say for sure.

- Are they often updated?
No, i have the impression that they aren't being followed up at all, despite the fact that Major Audio(distributor) gave me perfect technical assistance!

OVERALL OPINION

- For how long have you been using it?
1 Week

What thing do you like most/least about it?
the latency between the vinyl and the software, the sound is very good (using mp3s at 320 of course)

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
no, i was hesitating between FS2 and serato

- What is your opinion about the value for the price? good

-Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?...
Yes without a doubt.

Stanton Magnetics Final Scratch 2
Choose what my motivation is the Final Scratch scratch amp with its firewire connection and a quality 24/96 and also the quality of finish of Stanton and the good reviews of DJ Professionals.

My use is: Scratch, mix, live, recording, mixtape (RnB, Hip Hop ,...)

I use it with the following configuration: AMD Sempron 2200 + (1.5 Ghz) 768 megs of ram. Motherboard ASROCK K7-VT4A +.

For the mix: the mixer is a shdj technics 1200 turntables and two technics sl 1210mk2.

UTILIZATION

Regarding the installation, there is nothing except that installing the drivers provided.

I had no problem of incompatibility.

In terms of configuration, it is very simple (but biensure we are talking about a professional system so everything is adjustable)

At the manual, you can not do better clear quick and easy take over.

GETTING STARTED

Having acht rcemment, I MODEL with the latest drivers so no updates done. They are stable trs, uh ... oh done nothing said about the drivers by installing them as you think over APRS.

I use Final Scratch 2.0 Traktor DJ and supplied with 3.0

In terms of latency I get with a good rglage: 10ms (innaudible)

And I get to read four tracks at the same time.

After a few weeks of use, I have a problem switching from firewire to reinstall my rsolu the ScratchAmp. Although this is happened once and it's ben dj too!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a month.

The particular feature I like most, well, it is dvelopp to work with the best DJ software (Traktor) and also biensure sound (the quality of sound), a marvel (no Mixvibes do with) and I like least, cuts the firewire port.
Acqurir before, I tried: Rane Serato, MixVibes Pro 6 and Final Scratch 2 recess well (the one that is close to silent Serato Final Scratch (traktor tipped the scales))

At qualitprix report, it is good trs. (Look the price of a sound card of this quality in you will see ..... firewire) and yet it is certainly better (see ScratchAmp)

I would do this choice more quickly without making me try it before all the shit.

The manual in FRENCH (I press franais for Serato, I know I'm too can be against him, but he m 'of many) is superbly rdig.

The drivers are completely stable on two points: The sound is superb and the stability of the hardware too. Wow, that's gniale.

There are more than up days in a time of dsacord between Stanton and NI but srieux not put day needs, the program works perfectly, saying nothing.

- What software do you use most often?

I use Final Scratch 2 provides with purchase. It is a marvel. That certain person could blame him is to not have built-in effects. I have no need. I do like with real vinyl records. Finally, for those looking for a prog PRO and effects, choose FS2 is a guarantee of quality you can install more TRAKTOR DJ 3 o DECKADANCE.Tous both superb.

I tried MixVibes PRO 6, Serato Scratch Live before. Mixvibes, not bad. Serato, blah blah.

- How do you report qualitprix?

Super good !!!! I command the USA

- With the exprience, you do again this choice ...?

With my experience, I would jump on FS2 first, and I would not change as I did.

Stanton Magnetics Final Scratch 2
What motivated me is being able to store all the MP3 and WMA skeuds on a hard drive. Fs2 I use everywhere, in the evenings, among friends and home. I use a desktop PC, P4 3Ghz OC to 3.5 GHz, 1024 DDR PC 3200 ca CARREMENT turns too well. All this is connected to the Numark TT500 Numark and mixed by a 5000FX.

UTILIZATION

No prob to install, you throw it, you take a drink and it's done. It's so fake that even my grandmother could do it ... Easy setup and intuitive, it's what Windows is not Linux ... Manuel pretty damn good, no complaints ...

GETTING STARTED

The native or a little screwed up ... The basic drivers are a proscribed limit, but hey you have to go through to upgrade. Level update, native manages, they regularly offer. Once housed on NI three plays and that's it ... I use personal time 8ms latency, fully ca gere ... Even the 10ms provided a sufficient basis.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 months and I must admit that I am thrilled. This is simply too good to have the first hand is the track that stinks a bit, bin it .... uh .... is Bin I did not see ... I tried anything else, is that I wanted FS, and any price. Speaking prices, this little gem is steep, but the solution to every problem, I bought the US version, imported from the states, I got out at about € 550 including customs charges. In your place I will buy not in France, but rather on Ebay or other ... Once the stuff in the legs, no way to get rid of it is a purchase that you're not ready to regret ...

Stanton Magnetics Final Scratch 2
- C what my motivation is to use a database and computer is mainly to provide play with vinyl records (former al.)
- Use a 100% club for 6 hours non stop and not a final scratch cd unniquement

UTILIZATION

- This installs the carefree
- No imcompatibilitbr /> - c is or should be taking this head a little at the software settings correct but nothing serious
- It could be more specific about the settings but hey

GETTING STARTED

- My pc is a sony P4 3GHZ 1024 ram
- Again it takes time to settle software
- With my settings or anything that any bug in cd or vinyl in ca has never plantbr /> - for those that they do not want this to lead to solve a little software that we go buy a cheap but that shit they do not criticize the fs2

OVERALL OPINION

- I use the for more than a year.
- My favorite is the quality of the software and the quality of sound (the top).
- Serato is good for sratch, mivibes n is not bad but not comparable sorry.
- Shame for the package price and the price of vinyl records but if the quality does lon.
- Over time I would not change my choice of case I'm testing my final scratch 2 with traktor dj Studio3 and his promises.
