“As digital music continues to make noise across the entire industry, especially for DJs, we are thrilled to offer this update for our popular SCS.4DJ mixstation,” says Gus Jursch, Director of Operations for Gibson Pro Audio. “With tons of new features including enhanced effects, improved BPM accuracy, the new Time Rift Mode and the attractive, increased library size, we are certain the DJ community and beyond will be pleased with the updated operating system.”
Stanton’s SCS.4DJ continues to set standards as the first fully integrated solution capable of providing the functionality and performance demanded by today’s DJs and performers.

• Increased library size support, now up to 50,000 tracks can be loaded via an attached USB drive.
• Improved response times for large collections when navigating, browsing, searching and sorting.
• Improved browser window layout showing current selection and total size of collection.
• New synchronization options include Continuous Sync, Pitch and Beat Position or Pitch Only.

• Additional Effects include: High-Pass Filter, Low-Pass Filter, Band-Pass Filter, Phaser and Tape Delay.
• Time Rift Mode: A new creative option allowing users to enter a mode where they can scratch, seek, use hot cues, loop and then resume playing in SYNC with the other deck and never miss a beat.
• Added Manual Loop In and Out button functionality. The manual loops are stored with the track and remembered on reload.
• Improved file compatibility with added FLAC file support.
• Updated analyzing code which provides more accurate beat grids and BPM values.
