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.

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

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
