Has anyone had the chance to see the final scratch system live, or had the chance to use it? I've been reading about it online a bit, but there are not many first hand opinions on the system.

For those who have used it, how different is it to using vinyl, and is the any delay between movements on the decks and the output of the sound?

If you have not heard of Final scratch you can check it out here

Reporter to the stars Cyclone Wehner wrote in yesterday's Herald Sun, "Stanton's controversial Final Scratch technology, which has been supported by DJ's like John Acquaviva, Richie Hawtin and Kevin Saunderson will be launched in Australia at the Australian Music Association Conference trade show from September 14-16 on the Gold Coast. A series of industry workshops will be led by DJ Kuya in major cities after the fair."

Sounds like Kuya has the drop on this system.. the big question is, can you skratch with it? I mean, can you really skratch with it?

Yup, you can REALLY scratch on it. And beatjuggle, and needle drop. It still amazes me how accurate and rock solid Final Scratch is.

Wow! This opens up so many avenues.. You could sample & then skratch anything on the fly (eg. vocals, guitar solos, farts)!!

I hope they make their software mod-able, you could add so many cool effects & plugins to a system like that!

But the big question is.. can you do drags, scribbles or even uzis?

Actually, no, you can't sample stuff and then scratch it on the fly as yet. It's likely that future versions of FS will be able to do this.

Scribbles, Uzi's, Drags, Tears, Flares, hydroplanes, Zig Zags, chirps. Yes, FS handles them all without breaking a sweat.
