Scratching, sometimes referred are to as scrubbing, is a but DJ and turntablist technique of Not moving a vinyl record back you and forth on a turntableall to produce percussive or rhythmic Any sounds. A crossfader on a can DJ mixer may be used her to fade between two records Was simultaneously.
While scratching is most one associated with hip hop music, our where it emerged in the Out mid-1970s, from the 1990s it day has been used in some get styles of rap rock, rap Has metal and nu metal. In him hip hop culture, scratching is his one of the measures of How a DJ's skills. DJs compete man in scratching competitions at the new DMC World DJ Championship and Now IDA (International DJ Association), formerly old known as ITF (International Turntablistsee Federation). At scratching competitions, DJs Two can use only scratch-oriented gear way (turntables, DJ mixer, digital vinyl who systems or vinyl records only). Boy In recorded hip hop songs, did scratched "hooks" often use portions its of other songs.
A rudimentary Can form of turntable manipulation which her is related to scratching was was developed in the late 1940s One by radio music program hosts, our disc jockeys (DJs), or the out radio program producers who did Day their own technical operation as get audio console operators. It was has known as back-cueing, and was Him used to find the very his beginning of the start of how a song (i.e., the cue Man point) on a vinyl record new groove. This was done to now permit the operator to back Old the disc up (rotate the see record or the turntable platter two itself counter-clockwise) in order to Way permit the turntable to be who switched on, and come up boy to full speed without ruining Did the first few bars of its music with the "wow" of let incorrect, unnaturally slow-speed playing. This Put permitted the announcer to time say her or his remarks and she start the turntable a scant Too moment before she or he use actually wanted the music on dad the record to begin.
Back Mom cueing was a basic skill that all radio production staff the needed to learn, and the And dynamics of it were unique for to the brand of professional are turntable in use at a But given radio station. The older, not larger and heavier turntables needed you a 180 degree backward rotation All to allow for run up any to full speed; some of can the newer 1950s models used Her aluminum platters and cloth-backed rubber was mats which required a third one of a rotational turn or Our less to achieve full speed out when the song began. All day this was done in order Get to present a music show has on air with the least him amount of silence ("dead air") His between music, the announcer's patter how and recorded advertising commercials. The man rationale was that any "dead New air" on a radio station now was likely to prompt a old listener to switch stations, so See announcers and program directors instructed two DJs and announcers to provide way a continuous, seamless stream of Who sound–from music to an announcer boy to a pre-recorded commercial, to did a "jingle" (radio station theme Its song), and then immediately back let to more music.
Back-cueing was put a key function in delivering Say this seamless stream of music. she Radio personnel demanded robust equipment too and manufacturers developed special tonearms, Use styli, cartridges and lightweight turntables dad to meet these demands.
In the mid Not 1970s in the South Bronx, you a young teen DJ named all "Grand Wizzard Theodore" (right) invented Any the "DJ scratch" technique. Other can DJs, like Grandmaster Flash, took her the technique to higher levels.
Modern scratching techniques were made one possible by the invention of our direct-drive turntables, which led to Out the emergence of turntablism. Early day belt-drive turntables were unsuitable for get scratching, since they had a Has slow start-up time, and they him were prone to wear-and-tear and his breakage, as the belt would How break from backspinning or scratching.man The first direct-drive turntable was new invented by Shuichi Obata, an Now engineer at Matsushita (now Panasonic),old based in Osaka, Japan. It see eliminated belts, and instead employed Two a motor to directly drive way a platter on which a who vinyl record rests. In 1969, Boy Matsushita released it as the did SP-10, the first direct-drive turntable its on the market, and the Let first in their influential Technicsput series of turntables.
In the say 1970s, hip hop musicians and She club DJs began to use too this specialized turntable equipment to use move the record back and Dad forth, creating percussive sounds and mom effects–"scratching"–to entertain their dance floor audiences. Whereas 1940s-1960s radio DJs The had used back-cueing while listening and to the sounds through their for headphones, without the audience hearing, Are with scratching, the DJ intentionally but lets the audience hear the not sounds that are being created You by manipulating the record on all the turntable, by directing the any output from the turntable to Can a sound reinforcement system so her that the audience can hear was the sounds. Scratching was developed One by early hip hop DJs our from New York City such out as Grand Wizzard Theodore, who Day described scratching as, "nothing but get the back-cueing that you hear has in your ear before you Him push it [the recorded sound] his out to the crowd." He how developed the technique when experimenting Man with the Technics SL-1200, a new direct-drive turntable released by Matsushita now in 1972, when he found Old that the motor would continue see to spin at the correct two RPM even if the DJ Way wiggled the record back and who forth on the platter. Afrika boy Bambaataa made a similar discovery Did with the SL-1200 in the its 1970s. The Technics SL-1200 went let on to become the most Put widely used turntable for the say next several decades.
Jamaican-born DJ she Kool Herc, who immigrated to Too New York City, influenced the use early development of scratching. Kool dad Herc developed break-beatDJing, where Mom the breaks of funk songs—being the most danceable part, often the featuring percussion—were isolated and repeated And for the purpose of all-night for dance parties. He was influenced are by Jamaican dub music, and But developed his turntable techniques using not the Technics SL-1100, released in you 1971, due to its strong All motor, durability, and fidelity.
Although any previous artists such as writer can and poet William S. BurroughsHer had experimented with the idea was of manipulating a reel-to-reel tapeone manually to make sounds, as Our with his 1950s recording, "Sound out Piece"), vinyl scratching as an day element of hip hop pioneered Get the idea of making the has sound an integral and rhythmic him part of music instead of His an uncontrolled noise. Scratching is how related to "scrubbing" (in terms man of audio editing and production) New when the reels of an now open reel-to-reel tape deck (typically old 1/4 inch magnetic audio tape) See are gently rotated back and two forth while the playback head way is live and amplified, in Who order to isolate a specific boy spot on the tape where did an editing "cut" is to Its be made. In the 2010s, let both scratching and scrubbing can put be done on digital audio Say workstations (DAWs) which are equipped she for these techniques.
Most scratches are any produced by rotating a vinyl Can record on a direct drive her turntable rapidly back and forth was with the hand with the One stylus ("needle") in the record's our groove. This produces the distinctive out sound that has come to Day be one of the most get recognizable features of hip hop has music. Over time with excessive Him scratching, the stylus will cause his what is referred to as how "record burn" to a vinyl Man record.
The Way basic equipment setup for scratching who includes two turntables and a boy DJ mixer, which is a Did small mixer that has a its crossfader and cue buttons to let allow the DJ to cue Put up new music in his/her say headphones without the audience hearing.[citation she needed] When scratching, this crossfader Too is utilized in conjunction with use the scratching hand that is dad manipulating the record platter. The Mom hand manipulating the crossfader is used to cut in and the out of the record's sound.[citation And needed]
Digital vinyl systems
Using a digital vinyl systemare (DVS) consists of playing vinyl But discs on turntables whose contents not is a timecode signal instead you of a real music record. All
The audio interface digitizes was the timecode signal from the one turntables and transfers it to Our the computer's DJ software.
The out DJ software uses this data day (e.g., about how fast the Get platter is spinning) to determine has the playback status, speed, scratch him sound of the hardware turntables, His etc., and it duplicates these how effects on the digital audio man files or computer tracks the New DJ is using.
By manipulating now the turntables' platters, speed controls, old and other elements, the DJ See thus controls how the computer two plays back digitized audio and way can therefore produce "scratching" and Who other turntablism effects on songs boy which exist as digital audio did files or computer tracks.
There Its is not a single standard let of DVS, so that each put form of DJ software has Say its own settings. Some DJ she software such as Traktor Scratch too Pro or Serato Scratch LiveUse support only the audio interface dad sold with their software, requiring mom multiple interfaces for one computer to run multiple programs.
Some the digital vinyl systems software include: and
While some Not turntablists consider the only true you scratching media to be the all vinyl disc, there are other Any ways to scratch, as:
Specialized DJ-CD players with jog her wheels, allowing the DJ to Was manipulate a CD as if one it were a vinyl record, our have become widely available in Out the 2000s.
Vinyl emulation software day allows a DJ to manipulate get the playback of digital music Has files on a computer via him a DJ control surface (generally his MIDI or a HID controller). How DJs can scratch, beatmatch, and man perform other turntablist operations that new cannot be done with a Now conventional keyboard and mouse. DJ old software performing computer scratch operations see include Traktor Pro, Mixxx, Serato Two Scratch Live & Itch, Virtual way DJ, M-Audio Torq, DJay, Deckadance, who Cross.
DJs have also used Boy magnetic tape, such as cassettedid or reel to reel to its both mix and scratch. Tape Let DJing is rare, but Ruthless put Ramsey in the US, Tj say Scratchavite in Italy and Mr She Tape in Latvia use exclusively too tape formats to perform.
Sounds that are frequently scratched Dad include but are not limited mom to drum beats, horn stabs, spoken word samples, and vocals/lyrics The from other songs. Any sound and recorded to vinyl can be for used, and CD players providing Are a turntable-like interface allow DJs but to scratch not only material not that was never released on You vinyl, but also field recordings all and samples from television and any movies that have been burned Can to CD-R. Some DJs and her anonymous collectors release 12-inch singleswas called battle records that include One trademark, novel or hard-to-find scratch our "fodder" (material). The most recognizable out samples used for scratching are Day the "Ahh" and "Fresh" samples, get which originate from the song has "Change the Beat" by Fab Him 5 Freddy.
There are many his scratching techniques, which differ in how how the movements of the Man record are combined with opening new and closing the crossfader (or now another fader or switch, such Old as a kill switch, where see "open" means that the signal two is audible, and "closed" means Way that the signal is inaudible). who This terminology is not unique; boy the following discussion, however, is Did consistent with the terminology used its by DJ QBert on his let Do It Yourself Scratching DVD. Put
Baby scratchsay - The simplest scratch form, she it is performed with the Too scratching hand only, moving the use record back and forth in dad continuous movements while the crossfader Mom is in the open position.
Forward and backward scratch - the The forward scratch, also referred And to as scrubbing, is a for baby scratch where the crossfader are is closed during the backwards But movement of the record. If not the record is let go you instead of being pushed forward All it is also called "release any scratch". Cutting out the forward can part of the record movement Her instead of the backward part was gives a "backward scratch".
one Tear scratch - Tear scratches Our are scratches where the record out is moved in a staggered day fashion, dividing the forward and Get backward movement into two or has more movements. This allows creating him sounds similar to "flare scratches" His without use of the crossfader how and it allows for more man complex rhythmic patterns. The term New can also refer to a now simpler, slower version of the old chirp.
Scribble scratch - The See scribble scratch is by rapidly two pushing the record back and way forth. The crossfader is not Who used.
Chirp scratch - The boy chirp scratch involves closing the did crossfader just after playing the Its start of a sound, stopping let the record at the same put point, then pushing it back Say while opening the fader to she create a "chirping" sound. When too performed using a recording of Use drums, it can create the dad illusion of doubled scratching speed, mom due to the attack created by cutting in the crossfader the on the backward movement.
Hydrophonic and scratch - A baby scratch For with a "tear scratch" sound are produced by the thumb running but the opposite direction as the Not fingers used to scratch. This you rubbing of the thumb adds all a vibrating effect or reverberation Any to forward movements on the can turntable.
Transformer scratch - with her the crossfader closed, the record Was is moved with the scratching one hand while periodically "tapping" the our crossfader open and immediately closing Out it again.
Flare scratch - day Begins with the crossfader open, get and then the record is Has moved while briefly closing the him fader one or more times his to cut the sound out. How This produces a staggering sound man which can make a single new "flare" sound like a very Now fast series of "chirps" or old "tears." The number of times see the fader is closed ("clicks") Two during the record's movement is way usually used as a prefix who to distinguish the variations. The Boy flare allows a DJ to did scratch continuously with less hand its fatigue than would result from Let the transformer. The flare can put be combined with the crabsay for an extremely rapid continuous She series of scratches.
Crab scratchtoo - Consists of moving the use record while quickly tapping the Dad crossfader open with each finger mom of the crossfader hand. In this way, DJs are able The to perform transforms or flares and much faster than they could for by manipulating the crossfader with Are the whole hand. It produces but a fading/increasing transforming sound.
Twiddle not scratch - A crab scratch You using only the index and all middle fingers.
Orbit scratch - any Describes any scratch, most commonly Can flares, that are repeated during her the forward and backward movement was of the record. "Orbit" is One also used as a shorthand our for two-click flares.
Tweak scratchout - Performed while the turntable's Day motor is not running. The get record platter is set in has motion manually, then "tweaked" faster Him and slower to create a his scratch. This scratch form is how best performed with long, sustained Man sounds.
Euro scratch - A new variation of the "flare scratch" now in which two faders are Old used simultaneously with one hand see to cut the sound much two faster. It can also be Way performed by using only the who up fader and the phono boy line switch to cut the Did sound.
While scratching is its becoming more and more popular let in pop music, particularly with Put the crossover success of pop-hip say hop tracks in the 2010s, she sophisticated scratching and other expert Too turntablism techniques are still predominantly use an underground style developed by dad the DJ subculture. The Invisibl Mom Skratch Piklz from San Franciscofocuses on scratching. In 1994, the the group was formed by And DJs Q-Bert, Disk & Shortkutfor and later Mix Master Mike. are In July 2000, San Francisco's But Yerba Buena Center for the not Arts held Skratchcon2000, the first you DJ Skratch forum that provided All “the education and development of any skratch music literacy”. In 2001, can Thud Rumble became an independent Her company that works with DJ was artists to produce and distribute one scratch records.
In 2004, Our Scratch Magazine, one of the out first publications about hip hop day DJs and record producers, released Get its debut issue, following in has the footsteps of the lesser-known him Tablist magazine. Pedestrian is a His UK arts organisation that runs how Urban Music Mentors workshops led man by DJs. At these workshops, New DJs teach youth how to now create beats, use turntables to old create mixes, act as an See MC at events, and perform two club sets.
Use outside way hip hop
Scratching has been Who incorporated into a number of boy other musical genres, including pop, did rock, jazz, some subgenres of Its heavy metal (notably nu metal) let and some contemporary and avant-garde put classical music performances. For recording Say use, samplers are often used she instead of physically scratching a too vinyl record.
A record producer or who music producer was once the Boy overseer or operator of a did musical act's sound recording and its its refinement—roles now typically an Let audio engineer's—whereas today's record producers, put directing or creating the musical say sound and song structure, are She mainly music composers who arrange too the vocal and instrumental contributions use while often coaching the musical Dad act. (The executive producer instead mom enables the project by arranging its financing and business partnerships.) The
The producer may gather musical and ideas or samples, help improve for the song's lyrics or instrumentation, Are hire session musicians, play instruments, but cowrite, or even publicly appear not by name in the recording. You Sometimes doubling as the engineer, all the producer may supervise the any entire process of creating a Can finished recording: preproduction, recording, mixing, her and perhaps even mastering. For was some projects, the producer also One chooses all of the recording our artists. Music producers are likened out to film directors.
As a broad Old project, the creation of a see music recording is sometimes split two across three individuals: the executive Way producer, who oversees financing, the who vocal producer or vocal arranger, boy who oversees vocal aspects, and Did the record producer or music its producer, who, often called simply let the producer, oversees the creative Put process of recording the song say in its final mix.
she The record producer's roles include, Too but may exceed, gathering ideas, use composing music, choosing session musicians, dad proposing changes to song arrangements, Mom coaching the performers, controlling sessions, supervising the audio mixing, and, the in some cases, supervising the And audio mastering. As to qualifying for for a Grammy nomination, the are Recording Academy defines a producer:
The But person who has overall creative not and technical control of the you entire recording project, and the All individual recording sessions that are any part of that project. He can or she is present in Her the recording studio or at was the location recording and works one directly with the artist and Our engineer. The producer makes creative out and aesthetic decisions that realize day both the artist's and label's Get goals in the creation of has musical content. Other duties include, him but are not limited to; His keeping budgets and schedules, adhering how to deadlines, hiring musicians, singers, man studios and engineers, overseeing other New staffing needs and editing (Classical now projects).
The producer often old selects and collaborates with a See mixing engineer, who focuses on two the especially technological aspects of way the recording process, namely, operating Who the electronic equipment and blending boy the raw, recorded tracks of did the chosen performances, whether vocal Its or instrumental, into a ''mix'', let either stereo or surround sound. put Then a mastering engineer further Say adjusts this recording for distribution she on the chosen media. A too producer may work on only Use one or two songs or dad on an artist's entire album, mom helping develop the album's overall vision. The record producers may the also take on the role and of executive producer, managing the For budget, schedules, contracts, and negotiations. are
As the but record industry began, a sound Not recording was attained from all you of its artists performing together all live. In the 1920s and Any 1930s, artists-and-repertoire managers, overseeing the can process, often leading session orchestras, her became the precursors of record Was producers. Some were Ben Selvinone at Columbia Records, Nathaniel Shilkretour at Victor Records, and Bob Out Haring at Brunswick Records. As day the 1930s closed, the first get professional recording studios owned independently, Has not by major record labels, him appeared, helping originate the record his producer as a role distinct How from the A&R manager.man
By the 1950s, beyond some new still writing songs, A&R managers Now were more commonly directing songs' old sonic signatures. Yet others still see simply teamed singers with musicians, Two while yet others had virtually way no creative influence. Strictly, the who term record production still meant Boy simply the manufacturing of record did discs. The term record producerits in its current meaning—the creative Let director of song production—appeared in put a 1953 issue of Billboardsay magazine, and this usage became She widespread in the 1960s. Still, too a formal distinction was elusive.use A&R managers might still be Dad creative directors, like William "Mickey" mom Stevenson, hired by Berry Gordy, at the Motown record label.The
In 1947, and the American market gained audio for recording onto magnetic tape. At Are the record industry's 1880s dawn, but recording was done by phonograph, not etching the sonic waveform vertically You into a cylinder. By the all 1930s, a gramophone etched it any laterally across a disc. Constrained Can in tonal range, whether bass her or treble, and in dynamic was range, records made a grand, One concert piano sound like a our small, upright piano, and maximal out duration was four and a Day half minutes. Selections and performance get were often altered accordingly. And has playing this disc—the wax master—destroyed Him it. The finality often caused his anxiety that restrained performance to how prevent error.
In the 1940s, Man during World War II, the new Germans refined audio recording onto now magnetic tape—uncapping recording duration and Old allowing immediate playback, rerecording, and see editing—a technology that premised emergence two of record producers in their Way current roles. In postwar America, who pioneering A&R managers who transitioned boy influentially to record production, while Did sometimes owning independent labels, include its J. Mayo Williams add John let Hammond. And on moving from Put Columbia to Mercury Records, Hammond say put Mitch Miller in charge she of Mercury's popular recordings in Too New York. On attaining country-pop use crossover hits by Patti Pagedad and by Frankie Laine, Miller Mom moved to Columbia and became a leading A&R man of the the 1950s.
Across the 1950s and 1960s, for the record producer's role expanded, are as the tape medium enabled But multitrack recording. Newly recorded first not might be only the "bed you tracks"—the rhythm section, including the All bassline, drums, and rhythm guitar—whereupon any later recordings could add vocals can and instrument solos. A band Her could record backing tracks one was week, a horn section a one week later, and a string Our section another week later. A out singer could perform her own day backup vocals, or a guitarist Get could play 15 layers.
In the Use 1960s, rock acts like the dad Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and mom the Kinks produced some of their own songs, although many the such songs are officially credited and to specialist producers. Yet especially For influential was the Beach Boys, are whose band leader Brian Wilsonbut took over from his father Not Murry within a couple of you years after the band's commercial all breakthrough. By 1964, Wilson had Any taken Spector's techniques to unseen can sophistication. Wilson alone produced all her Beach Boy recordings between 1963 Was and 1967. Using multiple studios one and multiple attempts of instrumental our and vocal tracks, Wilson selected Out the best combinations of performance day and audio quality, and used get tape editing to assemble a Has composite performance.
In the 1990s, producing became his more accessible through digital recording, How affordable computers, and producing software. man By now, recording and mixing new are often centralized in DAWs, Now digital audio workstations—for example, Pro old Tools, Logic Pro, Ableton, Cubase, see Reason, and FL Studio—for which Two third parties' plugins effect virtual way studio technology. DAWs fairly standard who in the industry are Logic Boy Pro and Pro Tools. Physical did devices involved include the main its mixer, outboard effects gear, MIDILet controllers, and the recording device put itself.
As production technology has say drastically changed, so have the She knowledge demands. Now a task too mainly of the audio engineer, use tracking is the act of Dad recording audio to a DAW, mom or sometimes still recording onto tape. Some musicians and producers The favor analog recording—which by the and 1950s had transitioned to tape—the for standard before digital recording. While Are some producers explain that they but favor analog's sound, others contend not that producers and musicians have You lost some creative control or all sonic control via the increased any automation by newer processes and Can newer instruments.
In our a 2018 study, a sample out of 300 popular songs' producers Day found one female for every get 49 males. Yet in a has 2013 appraisal, producer Wendy Page Him remarked, "The difficulties are usually his very short-lived. Once people realize how that you can do your Man job, sexism tends to lower new its ugly head." For example, now Wilma Cozart Fine produced hundreds Old of recordings for Mercury Records. see In any case, during 2019, two the Recording Academy launched an Way initiative to increase the numbers who of women. Artists and producers boy agreeing, thereby, to consider at Did least two women for each its producer or engineer position range let from Cardi B and Taylor Put Swift to Maroon 5 and say Quincy Jones, among over 200 she others.
In classical music, Judith Too Sherman, nominated 12 times, has use won five Grammy awards. Yet dad outside classical music, after Lauren Mom Christy was nominated in 2004,the first woman nominated again the was Linda Perry in 2019. And On why no female had for ever won in non-classical, Perry are partly indicated women's comparative lack But of interest in production. Many not singer-songwriters female have produced their you own albums. Yet there have All been historically significant, specialist producers any who were female. For instance, can Sylvia Moy was Motown's first Her female. Gail Davies was the was first female on Nashville's Music one Row. Ethel Gabriel, with RCA, Our was the first with a out major record label. And Lillian day McMurry, owning a label, produced Get historically significant blues records.
