SC-IX V4.0 Operating System

The SCS.4DJ is powered by SC-IX, the most advanced embedded operating system on the market. SC-IX provides track analysis; signal processing, deck functionality and playlist management. SC-IX also delivers visual feedback directly to the integrated display so that your focus remains on the surface. SCS.4DJ will analyze your music and calculate a "beat-grid", this is at the heart of synchronizing tracks during a mix, or keeping loops/effects in time. Your music is shown as frequency dependent color waveforms to keep you connected to your mix.SC-IX has a large amount of customization from the System menu allowing features to be adjusted to match your style of DJing. Built on a Linux base, SC-IX is rock solid and made for reliable operation.

Ok so I have seen a lot of mixed reviews on this item so I thought I would share my thoughts of it. I just bought mine through Best Buy sorry Amazon didnt wanna deal with the holiday rush on shipping. I know this isnt full out professional DJ equipment but it isnt about having all the shiny toys with all top of the line stuff. Most every big rock group started with pawn shop PA's and cheap mexican knock off guitars and guess what, they ROCKED with them!! So to every review I see knocking anything that isnt over $1000 or has every input and output plus every effect ever built into it. I say this respect it for what it is. After all DJing is for the crowd not for YOU! The crowd has no clue if your running dual CDJ 2000's with sorrato or just running with this baby. So about this Stanton SCS4.

For one this makes setting up for a party or event a breeze. No more lugging a computer, hoping you brought all the right cables! Ok so all the cables are there now to fire up your computer hope that email you got didnt have a virus, oh dang it did now your computer is toast! Guess the show is canceled. There are so many things that can go wrong with computers its funny how DJ's swear by them. I worked in radio for years and know what we did when the computer crashed? Busted up the good ol cd's. Ok well this is 2011 and times have changed. Now I dont really see the point of not embracing this concept. Just think less moving parts=less breaking! Ill admit this thing takes awhile to load all your music, but once its done its done forever! Basically Im gonna shrink my music down to just the great party tracks, wedding tracks, and all time classic tracks. This will make this system run faster and make finding my music a breeze. Yes DJ's you dont need 40,000 songs for a wedding!

I've had one for 6 months and I absolutly love it. They are up to 3.01 firmware which has fixed all the tickie tac stuff and it's better than ever. Top tip, use fast USB thumb drives and use Stanton quick grid to process your tracks which will harness your computer's power instead of making the slow (by comparison) SCS4DJ do the work.

Have had the ScS.4DJ for about two weeks now and have done 6 gigs with it so far.

With the new 5.0 Update to the integrated software, this little all-in-one controller is a force to be reckoned with.
The 5.0 Update has corrected all of the issues that I have read about in previous reviews from the passed two years.
Added Stability, Hot cues, Rapid Menu Browsing, Improved Sound output (Heaphones too), Tighter MIDI mapping, Slip Mode (Time Rift Mode), scratch glitch (pre-update) correction, better BPM analysis. Are just some of the things I can think of off of the top of my head that have been added to the ScS.4DJ.

This underrated product definitely deserves more praise now that many of the issues from the previous software versions have been corrected. Quick grid works OK, but I don't use it, I just let the integrated software analyze the songs for me since it allows you to still DJ while it analyzes the tracks in the background (something Virtual DJ 7 and Serato DJ won't let you do).

The ScS.4DJ is way ahead of it's time, and is currently (as I write this review) still the only true All-in-One solution. I highly recommend this to beginners and experts, or those who just need to consolidate into a smaller, lighter set-up.

I have had this unit for a few months now. I got lucky and was able to get a pristine "open box" item from an Amazon seller for $179. It was unused and in perfect condition :-)

First things first, I am not a pro and would consider myself a bedroom DJ. This unit serves my needs quite well. I can mix mp3s back and forth with out the need for a laptop. I can mix, scratch (the latncy is ever so slight) and add a few effects to any mp3s that I have put on a thumb drive, portable hard drive etc.

The key things is NO NEED for a laptop. The next closest unit I can think of that can do that is the Pioneer XDJ Aero or maybe the Numark NS7. Sure those are professional and quality builds but they are going to run you in the $700-800 range. and the good thing here is that the SCS 4 has a little display screen on it that can be set to graphically display the waves of the MP3s playing. So when I am mixing or scratching I can see the waves that I am manipulating or grabbing. This helps immensely. This display is conveniently located in front of you and right next to your hands as opposed to having the need to look up and away at a laptop screen. I could be wrong, but I do not think that the Pioneer & Numark have such a graphical feature when in stand alone mode sans the pc.

In regard to the "slowness" of the machine that others may have put in their reviews. Please, please, if you get this unit you must go to the Stanton website and upgrade to the latest firmware. They have had maybe 4 updates since the unit was first released. It is now much faster, has many added features and a lot more stable. I know this because the unit I received had the original OS on it, so I got to see the before and after.
