In the early days Richie Hawtin from Berlin
England/Canada came up together with John Aquaviva to build a tool called Final Scratch, with this hardware software combination you can mix your mp3’s over normal old school turntables. Simple, but a lot of bugs and power failures at the beginning. Some releases later and after a change from Stanton to Native Instruments, Traktor Scratch Duo is now in the ring.
This scratchy music style is not for everyone but scratching is the best method to show how fast this gear is. Native want’s to demonstrate in different electronic genres, Traktor is ready for professional use so they invited two professionals to present the duo upgrade in a kinda battle. fun!
Traktor Scratch Duo will be released on first of April 09.

Admit we have traktor here, so we know not much about Serato Scratch Live, the other big player in this game. Maybe someone can tell us how Serato is doing at these days.
