Allows Any CD Player to Work with Final Scratch System --
JANUARY 16, 2003 - Stanton is proud to announce the introduction of
the Final Scratch CD Adaptor Kit. This new system converts any CD

scratch various types of audio files from a connected Mac or PC,
completely eliminating the need to carry CDs to gigs. The FS CD
Adaptor Kit also allows for scratching, seamless loops and hot starts.

standard audio files from a computer hard drive, including MP3, WAV
