And there is a simple answer: You won’t have to wait too long. They are coming! Sign up to our mailing list (see bottom of website) or follow us on Twitter/Facebook and you’ll get the update when we are ready to ship.
Meanwhile we’ll wet your appetite with the latest promotional video that the folks at Native Instruments have released onto the masses.You may have already drooled over your keyboard while watching DJ Rafik 2007 World DMC Champ jammin on the latest NI hardware (more on that after the break)… but this time long time TRAKTOR supporter DJ Craze is back on the NI set with a pair of sweet-ass gold-plated Technics 1200’s, a Pioneer DJM-909, TRAKTOR PRO, and NI’s most recent addition to their line of exceptional DJ hardware: The X1 Performance DJ Controller.
Nowadays DJ’s have the ability to use their Serato SL3‘s for mixing on 3 decks. You might even have gotten a glimpse of the new Serato Sixty-Eight at your favorite nightclub while a DJ tried to keep all 4 channels occupied with funky beeps, bops, kicks and snares. And I am sure by now you know about the shortcut combo for single turntable DJing which helps you make it through the night if one of your Turntables/CDJ’s stops working, disappears from the back of your Honda Civic as you are trying to load in or simply gets showered in RedBull & Vodka by one of those drunk beauties standing by your table during the night’s celebration.
Assuming you are not that unlucky, your bases are mostly covered thanks to Serato’s ingenuity. But what happens when your Serato ScratchLIVE interface gets lost or is forgotten because of your rush out the door??? That’s when you hit up this guy for his quick tutorial on something he calls “The Poor Man’s SSL”.

If you used to carry your sampler around to launch samples, airhorns, beats and other such elements while mixing you no longer have to depend on a separate piece of gear to accomplish this tasks. ScratchLIVE 1,9 and above offers 4 banks containing 6 samples each (24 Samples Total) that can be configured every which way and loaded with anything, a mix, a song, a sample, anything.
