Stanton makes a comeback with STX portable scratch turntable
The STX is Stanton’s first major release since being acquired by inMusic in 2020.
Stanton has unveiled its STX portable scratch turntable, which packs a mini Innofader Nano crossfader – a first for portable turntables. If you’re new to scratch DJing, this could be an ideal starting point.
The mini Innofader Nano crossfader, which can easily be swapped between left and right positions for left-handed and right-handed scratch styles, is designed to last over four million cycles. It also features independent crossfader Cut-In and Curve knobs that allow you to precisely calibrate the crossfader for “razor-sharp cuts.”
Two rechargeable batteries and a built-in speaker are also featured on the unit, as well as a latching lid that also doubles as a stackable base – making it instantly deployable at any gathering.
Alternately, for longer sessions, the turntable’s USB-C charging input also be used with external power banks. The beats and loopers can be added via Bluetooth input, and the USB port also features one-touch recording for content creation.
Several mods are already included on the STX out of the box, including a Start/Stop button, onboard speaker, and a pitch slider with Ultra Pitch selection switch. These features, Stanton states, are to encourage DJs to personalise the turntable to match their individual style.
