TRAKTOR SCRATCH A10 also features an intuitive software interface and TruWave frequency-specific colored waveforms for easy identification of song structure.

Spin super-precise 2kHz control signal on 120g vinyl – it feels just like your digital track was cut to a 12-inch - and with the innovative vinyl marker stickers you get clear visual reference at all times. Alternatively, use your CDJs with TRAKTOR MK2 timecode in relative mode, and stay ahead of the competition - use TRAKTOR’s loops and hot cues and your CDJs’ cue and manual looping functionality, and get the best out of both systems.
TRAKTOR SCRATCH A10 offers an incredible range of creative options to define your individual sound. The intuitive looping and cueing functions have been further enhanced with the addition of Remix Decks, making live remixing and re-editing a cinch. Grab and layer your own loops, use the library of included loop content or fire off one-shot samples such as the included scratch sounds. Record from any channel via the Loop Recorder and add dynamic layers to dramatically heighten your mix.

Top customer reviews
I have seen many a DJs use Serato and from what i have seen, Traktor has pretty much the same features (short cuts/hot keys) as serato. if you were to look at all the different videos and read all the different reviews about serato and traktor, you will find that they are both the same in one aspect or another. the only real difference is how much you (the consumer) is willing to spend.
for $299 from amazon for the A6 or $499 for the SL2/3 model...i'll pick the A6. and i'm glad i did!
product comes with sound card, pair of time coded cds, pair of time coded vinyl (MK2), serial for hardware and software, RCA cables (2 pair), power cable, and hot key map sheet.
The only bad thing I have to say about this product is that the USB port on the unit is weak and delicate. It broke on a used one that I purchased (not the one I bought new later). I can't rule out previous abuse, but it worked great for over year and showed no signs of damage or malfunction. Then all of a sudden, one day I went to pull out the cable from the unit and the cable completely ripped out the USB housing. Totally destroyed the USB port, rendering the item useless for DJing, which is what i need it for. I have since bought a replacement USB 2.0 port that I am going to solder in, I hope it works. I have since thrown away the cable that did the damage, even though I doubt the cable was broken or damaged.
My only advice is to be very careful when plugging in and unplugged a USB cable to this device. Don't wiggle it. Go straight in and out. I have heard of this happening to someone else too. Just be careful. I wish NI made a stronger USB housing for this product.
It's proven itself in several gigs, providing excellent audio output and reliability. Compared to the issues I experienced with my previous Connectiv inteface, this is worlds apart in terms of quality, build construction, and durability.
Anyhow, it runs like a champ on my Corei5 with 8 gigs of RAM, even with lots of other apps open. Latency is low and it's very responsive using two Akai Pro LPD8s as controllers for loops, cues and effects. Worth every penny.
The hardware is compact and sturdy. There are several lights that show the state of the inputs and outputs, so you don't need to look at the software interface to troubleshoot connections. The connectors are really firm, screwed into place. Audio quality seems to be very good, but I can't take serious measurements without adequate equipment.
The USB cable included is a high-quality cable, but the audio cables are of poor quality. I recommend that you buy a pair of good RCA stereo cables to connect it to your mixer.
The software has a lot more features than what I need, but some of them are easy to get rid of in the interface, making it a lot more versatile than, say, Serato Scratch Live. For instance, the BPM indicators and the "drift" bar can be disabled, which is a plus for experienced DJs and starters like me.
One of my favorite features is the track selection area on the timecode vinyl records, a really helpful feature not found on other digital vinyl systems. It really helps to avoid touching the computer without buying additional hardware.
I really recommend it, since it's cheaper than Serato and offers more features.
