User-review originally by bertrand16: here ( )

- 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


- 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.


- 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!


- 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.
