Hi, iv been using turntables for 2 years now and have decided to upgrade, but after reading about Scratch live in a DJ mag, i couldn't help finding out more about it. So iv got a few questions for the poeple who have some experence using this software.

Does the vinyl react, like real vinyl?

Can you create "Crates" on the software so you can just pick and drop your next tune and play? While another tune is playing?

Do you recommend it for gigs?

I read something about an upgrade, is that free or?

One more, is it Ok to download free music and play it at gigs?

Thanks to anyone who can answer any of these questions:)

Yes, there is no existing system which comes closer to the original feeling of vinyl, none that I have tested.

yes+yes.

yes, unless if youre doing long mixes, then wait for the next (free) update which should fix a drift bug.

If you want to destroy the scene, sure. I dont recommend it, if youre making money out of it, BUY the music you play, the artists deserve that. If you play it, then it should be worth buying it. But thats a real philosphical question.
