Stanton SCS.4DJ Firmware 3.0 Update Released
The new Stanton SCS.4DJ 3.0 Firmware is now available for free download to all current and future SCS.4DJ owners. We spoke to ProfessorXB from the Stanton Team who breaks down all the new improvements found on the unit. The new improvements are so drastic, that we had to go re-visit and update the review with these findings which greatly improve the usability of the unit.
The most notable improvement is the inclusion of three hotcues per deck which can be set and deleted on the fly. These Cue Points and Loops are now saved between power cycles for later use. The unit now runs much faster and it is much easier to analyze tracks on the computer which will cut the preparation time down drastically. BeatGrid editing can now be done on the fly as well. Peep the "New" review update in the link below, then watch the video for a full breakdown. The press release below lists the other improvements and the link to the Stanton website all the way at the bottom will bring you to the firmware download.

STANTON BUILDS UPON THE GROUND-BREAKING SCS.4DJ WITH VERSION 3.0 OF THE SC-IX OPERATING SYSTEM
Stanton®, part of the Gibson Pro Audio division and an industry leader in the design and manufacture of professional audio products for DJs, is pleased to announce the next evolution of the SC-IX operating system which powers the ground-breaking SCS.4DJ Complete Digital DJ System.
Stanton shocked the industry by introducing the SCS.4DJ, the first fully-integrated solution capable of providing the functionality and performance demanded by today’s DJs and performers. The SCS.4DJ is a Complete Digital DJ System powered by state-of-the-art processors removing the need for an external computer when performing. This fresh approach means a DJ can simply plug in a storage device and start mixing using the built-in decks, mixer and high resolution color display.
“SC-IX Version 3.0 propels SCS.4DJ capabilities far beyond any other DJ solution at this price point,” says Timothy Dorwart, General Manager of Gibson Pro Audio, a division of the Gibson Guitar Corporation. “The new features such as hot cues and beatgrid editing raise this product to the professional level, demonstrating our continued commitment to DJ’s and our products.”
•BeatGrid editing - The ability to edit a track’s beatgrid in real-time, with both “Tap Tempo” and “Dial-In-BPM” functionality, for increased Sync and Loop accuracy and stability.
