Editors' Review

Ots CD Scratch 1200 is a fun and easy-to-use program that lets users play CDs in a virtual turntable environment. It's not as complex as some of the DJ software that we've seen, which may be a drawback for more advanced users, but this program is a great choice for those just getting started with turntable-style DJing.

The program's interface isn't the most intuitive we've ever seen, but it gets points for being fun. The design seeks to replicate the appearance of a real DJ deck, with two turntables and various cables and buttons. We do wish that some of the buttons had mouse-over tooltips, but on the whole the program was pretty easy to figure out after a bit of experimentation. Ots CD Scratch 1200 has several really cool features, including the option to play two tracks from the same CD at once. The program can even play one or both of the tracks backward, and they can be sped up or slowed down with a simple slider. The application's PDF Help file is well-written and thorough. If we have any complaint about the program it's that it is a CD player and only that; it does not allow users to play MP3s or other digital audio formats. The program does support the use of multiple CD players, though, so it's a great choice if you want to spin songs that are still stored on CDs.

Ots CD Scratch 1200 is free, but the paid Deluxe version has additional features. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.

"A very nice program for Mobile performance"

March 14, 2007  |  By rocky49152

 |  Version: Ots CD Scratch 1200 1.00.032

Pros

I've used a couple of trial DJ PC products and none come even close to this one in terms of overall usability and stability.

One thing I cannot stress enough - this truly is a lite application in terms of resource usage. I own a pentium 4 1.2 GHZ machine with about 768MB memory (1 gig at least is standard on new mid-market PC's). It loads quickly and allows you to get started immediately, and it doesn't bog down your PC. The interface is very intuitive and easy to use. Because of the added sound processing and normalization features, this player sounds great even in it's freeware form! You will not need to mess around much with the equalization between tracks. The vinyl theme adds to the overall feel of the product and makes you feel like your spinning your MP3's on two proper decks. Also surprising, which I didn't think I would like, is the "vinyl noise" feature, which makes your MP3 sound surprisingly like real vinyl. This is switched off by default, but I have become addicted to it. If you're not a hands on DJ, you will really love the way this product automates fades from one track to another. I honestly have to say I haven't heard a clumsy auto-fade yet! Anyone who has tried to use the so-called auto-crossfade feature on Windows Media Player will definitely appreciate it.

Cons

There's not much to not like about this program, particularly since the one I tested is the freeware version. Outside of the unavailable features (some eq and effects, return-pitch bending, beat matching), there are some things that I think are legitimate gripes.

The two-deck vinyl user interface, though a cool edition graphically, isn't very practical. Scratching with the mouse is too clumsy to seriously try during a performance. Also gripeworthy is the fact that your tracks have to be either in .WAV or 44,1nnn cycle mp3 format, which is pretty standard - but I have some stuff in .WMA format as well that I had to convert in order to use.

Finally, be careful if you plan to use music with this that you paid for through services like iTunes and Urge. Because of the DRM encoding on those tracks that I downloaded (legally), I had to rip the tracks from the CD's I originally burned from them in order to get them into the right unencoded format. I would really like to see this product support the WMA format and DRM managed files in the future, but it's definitely not enough to stop me from recommending it, and it's not something I believe the company would have much say in anyhow.

"good program but the glitch is"

November 29, 2006  |  By SWDetroit

 |  Version: Ots CD Scratch 1200 1.00.032

Pros

it is great if you have 2 cd roms and you want to mix.. it is great for those that had no experance sense it does have a auto mixer in it the layout after with time gets easy to work with but if you are new it seems kinda difficult all in all it is a great program if you just started up

Cons

You can not use music that is on your computer you can only use cds to use it if you are into using you personal computer or a laptop you are better off looking for a program that can use music that is in your hard drive...

"Ots CD Scratch - Simple but not Exceptional"

December 02, 2005  |  By daniel_p

 |  Version: Ots CD Scratch 1200 1.00.032

Pros

It's easy to use, and free. Small file size.

Cons

Somewhat ugly. The layout fails to impress or stand out in any way. Mixing is too simple - not for the advanced users.
