Unhappy Phono thru on Stanton's Final Scratch

I finaly sucumed to the posibilities and advantages that D.Jing digitaly has to offer, and went and got myself a copy of Stanton's Final Scratch.
Final Scratch supposedly comes with a passive phono thru so you can still listen to records as normal while the decks are connected to the Scratch Amp (Final Scratches Hardware interface).
I instantly noticed a deteriation of the sound quality when listening to the same record through the Scratch Amp compared to going straight to my mixer.
Has anyone else noticed this problem, or have I just got a duff Scratch Amp ?

Have you tried DJing with abelton in a mixed vinyl/laptop situation. It is nothing but awkward and has very little element of being tactile like FS or Serato. Trying to cue with a tap tempo function is the most annoying thing ever. Abeleton is great if you use just ableton.

I would tend to agree with Richi on the fact that beat mixing by tapping the tempo is rather awkward. At least that was until I recently sold my urei and got a Xone 92. Right now my setup is two decks, the xone, my powerbook running serato, and my pc laptop running ableton. With live hooked up to the midi from the mixer, I find it very easy to match the tempo in live with the current track playing. The xone has at tempo tap that works quite rough but once you have the approx. tempo tapped in you just use the tempo adjust knop on the mixer to pitch live. It's very much like using the pitch on a deck except its rotary. Furthermore you can use live as a very extended effectsbox, and its very simple. And the sound quality of the effects is up to you and you wallet(the better the plug-ins and sound card the better the sound).

Well sorry to sway of topic here but to get back, I can only refer to serato as that is what I have. I haven't made any direct comparison but I didn't notice any degradation that sprung in my ear from first use.

Oh and finally, the sound of the xone is really very nice in my opinion. It's better than most other mixers out there but still the urei has that umpf in the bottom, and those smooth highs that just makes it special. As has been said numerous times its a question sound quality and features. It seems the urei sound is not reachable if you want eq's and filters. And that's just what I need right now.

there were problems with the phono through on Final Scratch - you can find a wave-file somewhere on skratchworx.com, so most probably it isnīt your scratchamp;
