Monthly Archive

Below is a complete archive of all the news stories we've ever posted, broken down by month. Apologies for any missing pictures - the recent host change has seen a few images go walkabout. As I come across them, I'll find them and reinsert them. But I'm sure you'd rather I worked on the all new site than recover 7 year old images.

Reviews - time for something a little different...
Posted by Gizmo on April 29, 2004


After many months (6 in fact) of trying, our new friends at Vestax have realised that maybe... just maybe skratchworx is serious about what we do.

FinalScratch without the Scratchamp? Check DjDecks!
Posted by Gizmo on April 19, 2004


Imagine using the Final Scratch timecoded vinyl but without the scratch amp and still scratch digital data... imagine linking up 3 decks to a PC ASIO soundcard and being able to scratch with all 3...

Well it's a reality with DjDecks mp3 mixing software.

Big thanks to Tobe (wacko.gif weird.gif huh.gif) for the info!
