Stanton SC SYSTEM 1 Rain Certified

Once upon a time, DJs wouldn't have considered spinning sets from a laptop. But today, the writing is not only on the wall — it's glowing in 20-foot neon letters. Thanks to their portability, processing power, massive song storage, and rapid advances in DJ software, laptops are here to stay. With this in mind, Stanton boldly introduces the world's first truly professional DJ control system, designed to fully empower laptop DJs and desktop producers. Introducing the SC System: The future of digital DJing on Mac and PC.

The SC System goes far beyond simple “all-in-one” controllers, thanks to separate “deck” and “mixer” components. This allows for multiple configurations, with clean lines drawn between the functions of each unit. It also allows for a premium feature set including built-in FireWire connections, a high-torque motorized platter with vinyl control disc, motorized faders, rotary encoders, massive flexibility, and integration into DJ software with advanced two-way feedback. Taken together, these features allow the SC System to go where no other DJ product has gone before.

SC SYSTEM 1 Product Overview
SC System 1 Video

scs.1mThis 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

scs.1m and scs.1dThis 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

scs.1m and scs.1dThis 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

Dual SCS.1d + traditional DJ mixerThe 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 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.

DJ Booth"Designed from the ground up for high-precision software control, the SCS.1d Deck is a dream-come-true for laptop DJs. Using its trigger pads in conjunction with the platter provides wild creative possibilities never before possible. While simple in operation, the expressive possibilities are almost endless."

Read Review DJ AWARDS 2010

DJ Awards Logo“The SCS.1 System is without a doubt the single most advanced controller when it comes to transcending the essence of traditional vinyl spinning into a multidimensional control station that leaves all options open yet maintains the core approach of turntablism. A unique piece of technological treasure.”

Digital DJ Tips

"You can "perform" on this in a way you can't on smaller digital DJ gear. It's the first full-sized four-deck digital DJ setup that simply feels like using real records. Digital DJs wanting the best of both worlds – solid vinyl performance and feel but a complete plethora of Midi buttons, knobs and pads, will thus find much to like here."

Read Review DJ Killahurtz

DJ Killahurtz"The SC System is compact and lightweight enough for travel and has the best of both CDJ's and Vinyl Turntables. The ability to run 4 decks virtually with full control and full control of Traktor are what interested me. Now the product is everything I thought it was and more! I’m utilizing just about all of the controllable components in Traktor: looper, effects, tap tempo, manual beat matching, syncing and browser. The platter edge is fantastically sensitive to touch and feels just like you're playing vinyl or on a timecode system! It is the ultimate DJ format, every club should have it"

DJ Synergy

"This upgrade is a killer! The scratching precision is great and the performance is outstanding. The 1d’s feel just like my T1200s with all the added digital advantages that I envisioned. With this upgrade the SCS.1 system is by far the best controller system available. I chose it because of the turntable feel (I love the size of the platter) as well as the incredible command and control of digital DJing including looping, effects assigning, etc. I want the same dynamics for mixing and scratching as turntables. I also love all the flexibility of the SCS.1 from a digital perspective. Now.... off to my gig where I can stunt this new upgrade!"

DJ Skinny

I learned to DJ on standard CD players and that was my comfort zone. That was until I met the SCS.1. This will illustrate how impressive and intuitive this system is: While gigging, I let world renowned DJ GQ (a guy with 15 years in the biz and an original Vinyl DJ), test the system. His immediate reaction: "Can you get me a set of these?" While I could go on listing the myriads of features the SCS.1 posses – a key thing to remember that differentiates this system from so many others is the ability to upgrade for new features, functionality and connectivity. SC System 1 can be enhanced through firmware upgrades. What does that mean for pros like me? My investment is protected and it is a platform that we don’t outgrow.

SCS.1D Firmware Version 1.27

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.

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.
