Best Pro DJ Controller Hi-endAmazing Platter Controller
Compact controllers are great in some scenarios. But sometimes they’re just not enough. Tiny, non-motorized platters just don’t cut it when your goal is to try to emulate the vinyl experience. That is why we built the SCS.1d. The SCS.1d is the perfect crossover device for DJs that want to embrace the advanced features modern software offers, while still staying rooted in a traditional workflow.Wheel of Steel
The SCS.1d has a 10” motorized platter with a real slipmat and vinyl record. This means that our platter not only feels like a record on a turntable, it performs like one as well. There’s plenty of room for your hand on the platter, and you are free to move naturally instead of being confined to a tiny area. Likewise, the platter under the record will feel totally natural, delivering the industry standard torque and edge texture that you’re used to after years in front of traditional gear.Motorized Pitch Fader
When you’re dealing with software control, sometimes that software can change settings that don’t get passed down to a traditional hardware controller. This means that as a user, you’re left second-guessing whether moving that pitch slider is going to work correctly or mess up your mix. That isn’t a problem with the SCS.1d. If you use one SCS.1d to control 4 decks in Traktor, every time you switch decks, all of your controls (including the pitch fader) will move to the correct values for that deck.Rotary Controls (aka “Super Knobs”)
Beyond basic mixing and control, the SCS.1d makes a radical departure from traditional controllers via four rotary encoders (“virtual knobs”) with LED rings and corresponding LCD “scribble strips.” These fully assignable encoders can be mapped directly into functions in the DJ software while providing visual feedback of knob position, even in low-light settings. Underneath, the LCD scribble strips confirm the software parameter being adjusted by each encoder, without the need to check your laptop. Of course, common assignments for these encoders can be saved as presets for fast recall.Superior Build Quality
Unlike other DJ control surfaces, the SCS.1d Platter Controller offers truly professional, “no-compromise” build quality. Every knob, fader, LED and LCD is of utmost quality, and even the heavy chassis is designed for years of real-world use in demanding live and studio environments.
This mixer-only setup allows for basic mixing and transport control of software decks. Thanks to the SCS.1m's built-in audio interface capabilities, it's perfect for DJs wanting an all-in-one solution to play from their software into a PA system.SCS.1m + SCS.1d
This mixer-and-deck configuration can be used to emulate a dual-deck setup by using virtual decks for controlling transport, loop, and effects, while using the mixer to blend and EQ songs and sounds. This system is the perfect entry into the world of professional SC System laptop mixing.SCS.1m + Dual SCS.1d
This setup recreates the “traditional” DJ system, allowing users to have two physical decks, each representing an on-screen deck (which can easily be toggled to four decks by using virtual decks). The mixer is used for blending, channel EQ, etc. in a traditional manner. This setup is tailored towards professional DJs wanting to replace their existing setup with an SC System controller-based solution.
The Decks can be used with an existing sound card to send audio outputs from DJ software into an existing analog DJ mixer.Dual SCS.1d + traditional DJ mixer
The SCS.1d Decks can be used with an existing sound card to send audio outputs from DJ software into an existing analog DJ mixer. This allows users to incorporate SC System decks into their system while using their favorite traditional DJ mixer.SCS.1m + traditional turntables
The SCS.1m mixer can be incorporated into Digital Vinyl Systems (DVS) that support MIDI control by running the timecode into a sound card and using the SCS.1m's built-in MIDI functionality to control the user's preferred DJ software.
The new firmware version 1.27 enables much better platter performance in Traktor Pro, and it’s highly recommended that users update. PLEASE read the documentation linked below before running the firmware update. Please note that the current firmware versions are 1.27 for the SCS.1d, and 1.24 for the SCS.1m. The flash software linked below will flash either the SCS.1m or SCS.1d to those versions.» Updating SCS.1 Firmware (pdf) » SCS.1 Firmware Flasher for Windows » SCS.1 Firmware Flasher for OSX SCS.1 DaRouter Software
The SCS.1 DaRouter software serves several purposes. First and most importantly, it allows communication between your SCS.1 hardware and the software you want to control. Second, it allows users to benefit from “presets” that automatically configure the SCS.1 controller for the supported application. And finally, it gives immediate access to help documentation (by pressing the “?” button). Remember, the DaRouter software must be running in the background when you’re using your SCS.1 controllers.» SCS.1 DaRouter Installer for Windows » SCS.1 DaRouter Installer for OSX » Installing DaRouter in Windows (pdf) » Installing DaRouter in OSX (pdf) » About SCS.1 Darouter (pdf) SCS.1 ASIO driver for Windows ONLY
Windows users will need to install this ASIO driver in order to use the SCS.1 controllers. This driver is needed before your SCS.1 controllers will be detected properly by the operating system. If you see that you are having device detection issues, please run this ASIO installer and follow the instructions.
