Native Instruments announced that it has formed a strategic alliance with Stanton Magnetics to provide a new line of products in the growing digital-DJ market.

Stanton Magnetics entered into the DJ market with its Final Scratch system, which lets DJs physically control the playback of digital files such as MP3s and .WAV on a laptop computer using special vinyl records and standard turntables.

Native Instruments developed Traktor DJ Studio, the first software-only DJ'ing system for Mac OS X/OS 9 and Windows.

The first result of the collaborative effort will be Traktor Basic FS, a new version of Final Scratch based on Traktor's playback engine, available on Mac OS X. All users of the current Linux version can update to a Linux version; a Windows version is expected later this year. Features of Traktor Basic FS include enhanced Search function, prelistening directly in the browser and a structured view of the musical archive that can be organized by drag-and-drop. Additionally, a de-emphasis modeling combined with a high-end interpolation algorithm delivers warm, full bass sounds and smooth, realistic scratching.

Traktor Basic FS will be available in the beginning of April 2003. Later this year, the full version of Traktor DJ Studio will also be controllable by the Final Scratch system.
