    Default Tha Futur of Scratching

    Button Mashing/Cue+Fx style scratching is going to happen. let tha haters hate & the old-timers, as Method man said "wind up like your old dad, tryin to re-live tha glory days he never had"

    The record/controller/wheel/surface moving forms of scratch will mix with the button masshing and everyone will become a scratcher.

    So step up and boo-hoo if that's your style, but if you're ready to embrace the new stuff(with much grats and prop to EG), allow me to congratulate you on your open-mindedness and also tell you that you ain't alone.

    If you want to keep scratching in the old record move+crossfader way, the at least find a secondary control to spice up the sound. i recommend "key"

    As always, that ain't my "the best I've ever done, everybody look at my skills type of vid." It's simple, to show what's going on to the noobs among us.(since they are the most likely to embrace new style anyway)

    I find delay works nice when your scratching, the beatmasher works good to sample your scratching too.

    If you wanna get crazy there are other fx you can layer too, but then your definantly not getting into the more traditional hip hop sounds and the sounds become more useful for other styles of music... like scratching to psytrance =D

    the 'old school haters' will stop hating when scratch dj's utilizing modern technology prove its worth. while some have, this video doesnt. keep practicing, but expect people to hate on the sound first--the technology second.

    hate to bother you with TECH-y rubbish on a site like this, which is dedicated to clinging to tradition.
    I'm sooo sorry I wasn't able to impress you after 2 DAYS of Practice.
    btw,
    my computers acting up again, it can't seem to follow the link to your vids

    Now, on to something more interesting....my friend who works for Stanton and I are having this discussion about "playing chords via a turntable"
    i think it's possbile with the SCS to play chords from the scratch surface using 3 decks in Traktor for the notes, with all 3 controlled by one SCS3D.

    Anybody have any experience trying this? Or if ya just wanna bust out the typical "you're a dumbass" type comments, those are fine too

    When scratching psy i like to get a micro loop (smaller than 1/32 - i get this by using the loop /2 feature). Use beatmasher + delay + some other effects if your feeling like it and go crazy - you can definitely get some crazy psytrance suitable sounds happening

    @Drimachus - Kaiborg just doesnt like your performance but he thinks the idea is alright - dont take it to heart too badly
