Scratch MP3s with turntables and Windows

As always, the first of this year’s International Music Products Association conventions (the Winter NAMM show, held around the same time as CES) brought with it a barrage of new musical product announcements.

One of the more interesting PC-related announcements was that version 1.5 of Traktor FinalScratch will — at last — run natively on Windows XP (not just Linux) and optimisations have been made for Mac OS 10.3.

This digital DJ system features a special version of Native Instrument’s Traktor mixing software (supporting MP3, WAV, AIFF files and audio CDs) that interfaces with unique and supplied time-coded records that work on any turntable. This edition of FinalScratch 1.5 should be available by the time you read this.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
