Itch or Scratch for the Numark DMC2

I just purchased the Numark DMC2 controller.
I understand it works with Serato software.

The controller came with the "light" version of CUE, which is pretty cool. But since Numark & Serato are now strategic partners, I would like to find out more about Serato's software.

What do you suggest, Scratch or the new Itch?

I do not need the virtual records extra hardware to hook up turntables. I just want the software.

Please correct me if I am wrong but it looks like Scratch is made for virtual vinyl fans, and that Itch is for purely digital DJs.
Or does Scratch also work with a hardware controller like the DMC2, without turntables?

If not, will Itch do everything Scratch does.
And finally, what is the street price of Itch going to be?

Thanks,
Jeff

Take the Numark DMC2 back!

If you have time to wait, you should wait for one of the two new itch controllers.

Oh, and you'd know the reast if you read the main page.

Thanks for the response. But I don't want a tabletop unit. I want something that rackmounts.

What's wrong with the DMC2? The response time is excellent.
