Scratching, sometimes referred to as are scrubbing, is a DJ and but turntablist technique of moving a Not vinyl record back and forth you on a turntable to produce all percussive or rhythmic sounds. A Any crossfader on a DJ mixercan may be used to fade her between two records simultaneously.
While Was scratching is most associated with one hip hop music, where it our emerged in the mid-1970s, from Out the 1990s it has been day used in some styles of get rap rock, rap metal and Has nu metal. In hip hophim culture, scratching is one of his the measures of a DJ's How skills. DJs compete in scratching man competitions at the DMC World new DJ Championships and IDA (International Now DJ Association), formerly known as old ITF (International Turntablist Federation). At see scratching competitions, DJs can use Two only scratch-oriented gear (turntables, DJ way mixer, digital vinyl systems or who vinyl records only). In recorded Boy hip hop songs, scratched "hooks"did often use portions of other its songs.
A rudimentary form of turntable was manipulation that is related to One scratching was developed in the our late 1940s by radio music out program hosts, disc jockeys (DJs), Day or the radio program producers get who did their own technical has operation as audio console operators. Him It was known as back-cueing, his and was used to find how the very beginning of the Man start of a song (i.e., new the cue point) on a now vinyl record groove. This was Old done to permit the operator see to back the disc up two (rotate the record or the Way turntable platter itself counter-clockwise) in who order to permit the turntable boy to be switched on, and Did come up to full speed its without ruining the first few let bars of music with the Put "wow" of incorrect, unnaturally slow-speed say playing. This permitted the announcer she to time their remarks, and Too start the turntable in time use for when they wanted the dad music on the record to Mom begin.
Back cueing was a basic skill that all radio the production staff needed to learn, And and the dynamics of it for were unique to the brand are of professional turntable in use But at a given radio station. not The older, larger and heavier you turntables needed a 180-degree backward All rotation to allow for run any up to full speed; some can of the newer 1950s models Her used aluminum platters and cloth-backed was rubber mats which required a one third of a rotational turn Our or less to achieve full out speed when the song began. day All this was done in Get order to present a music has show on air with the him least amount of silence ("dead His air") between music, the announcer's how patter and recorded advertising commercials. man The rationale was that any New "dead air" on a radio now station was likely to prompt old a listener to switch stations, See so announcers and program directors two instructed DJs and announcers to way provide a continuous, seamless stream Who of sound–from music to an boy announcer to a pre-recorded commercial, did to a "jingle" (radio station Its theme song), and then immediately let back to more music.
Back-cueing put was a key function in Say delivering this seamless stream of she music. Radio personnel demanded robust too equipment and manufacturers developed special Use tonearms, styli, cartridges and lightweight dad turntables to meet these demands. mom
In day the mid-1970s in the South get Bronx, a young teen DJ Has named "Grand Wizzard Theodore" (right) him invented the "DJ scratch" technique. his Other DJs, like Grandmaster Flash, How took the technique to higher man levels.
Modern scratching techniques were new made possible by the invention Now of direct-drive turntables, which led old to the emergence of turntablism. see Early belt-drive turntables were unsuitable Two for scratching since they had way a slow start-up time, and who they were prone to wear Boy and tear and breakage, as did the belt would break from its backspinning or scratching. The first Let direct-drive turntable was invented by put Shuichi Obata, an engineer at say Matsushita (now Panasonic), based in She Osaka, Japan. It eliminated belts, too and instead employed a motor use to directly drive a platter Dad on which a vinyl record mom rests. In 1969, Matsushita released it as the SP-10, the The first direct-drive turntable on the and market, and the first in for their influential Technics series of Are turntables.
In the 1970s, hip but hop musicians and club DJs not began to use this specialized You turntable equipment to move the all record back and forth, creating any percussive sounds and effects–"scratching"–to entertain Can their dance floor audiences. Whereas her the 1940s–1960s radio DJs had was used back-cueing while listening to One the sounds through their headphones, our without the audience hearing, with out scratching, the DJ intentionally lets Day the audience hear the sounds get that are being created by has manipulating the record on the Him turntable, by directing the output his from the turntable to a how sound reinforcement system so that Man the audience can hear the new sounds. Scratching was developed by now early hip hop DJs from Old New York City such as see Grand Wizzard Theodore, who described two scratching as, "nothing but the Way back-cueing that you hear in who your ear before you push boy it [the recorded sound] out Did to the crowd." He developed its the technique when experimenting with let the Technics SL-1200, a direct-drive Put turntable released by Matsushita in say 1972 when he found that she the motor would continue to Too spin at the correct RPMuse even if the DJ wiggled dad the record back and forth Mom on the platter. Afrika Bambaataamade a similar discovery with the the SL-1200 in the 1970s. And The Technics SL-1200 went on for to become the most widely are used turntable for the next But several decades.
Jamaican-born DJ Kool not Herc, who immigrated to New you York City, influenced the early All development of scratching. Kool Herc any developed break-beatDJing, where the can breaks of funk songs—being the Her most danceable part, often featuring was percussion—were isolated and repeated for one the purpose of all-night dance Our parties. He was influenced by out Jamaican dub music, and developed day his turntable techniques using the Get Technics SL-1100, released in 1971, has due to its strong motor, him durability, and fidelity.
Although previous His artists such as writer and how poet William S. Burroughs had man experimented with the idea of New manipulating a reel-to-reel tape manually now to make sounds, as with old his 1950s recording, "Sound Piece"), See vinyl scratching as an element two of hip hop pioneered the way idea of making the sound Who an integral and rhythmic part boy of music instead of an did uncontrolled noise. Scratching is related Its to "scrubbing" (in terms of let audio editing and production) when put the reels of an open Say reel-to-reel tape deck (typically 1/4 she inch magnetic audiotape) are gently too rotated back and forth while Use the playback head is live dad and amplified, to isolate a mom specific spot on the tape where an editing "cut" is the to be made. In the and 2010s, both scratching and scrubbing For can be done on digital are audio workstations (DAWs) which are but equipped for these techniques.
Most scratches Him are produced by rotating a his vinyl record on a direct how drive turntable rapidly back and Man forth with the hand with new the stylus ("needle") in the now record's groove. This produces the Old distinctive sound that has come see to be one of the two most recognizable features of hip Way hop music. Over time with who excessive scratching, the stylus will boy cause what is referred to Did as "cue burn", or "record its burn".
The use basic equipment setup for scratching dad includes two turntables and a Mom DJ mixer, which is a small mixer that has a the crossfader and cue buttons to And allow the DJ to cue for up new music in their are headphones without the audience hearing.[citation But needed] When scratching, this crossfader not is utilized in conjunction with you the scratching hand that is All manipulating the record platter. The any hand manipulating the crossfader is can used to cut in and Her out of the record's sound.[citation was needed]
Digital vinyl systems
Using a digital vinyl systemOur (DVS) consists of playing vinyl out discs on turntables whose contents day are a timecode signal instead Get of a real music record. has
The audio interface digitizes man the timecode signal from the New turntables and transfers it to now the computer's DJ software.
The old DJ software uses this data See (e.g., about how fast the two platter is spinning) to determine way the playback status, speed, scratch Who sound of the hardware turntables, boy etc., and it duplicates these did effects on the digital audio Its files or computer tracks the let DJ is using.
By manipulating put the turntables' platters, speed controls, Say and other elements, the DJ she thus controls how the computer too plays back digitized audio and Use can therefore produce "scratching" and dad other turntablism effects on songs mom which exist as digital audio files or computer tracks.
There the is not a single standard and of DVS, so each form For of DJ software has its are own settings. Some DJ software but such as Traktor Scratch ProNot or Serato Scratch Live supports you only the audio interface sold all with their software, requiring multiple Any interfaces for one computer to can run multiple programs.
While some turntablists consider day the only true scratching media get to be the vinyl disc, Has there are other ways to him scratch, such as:
Specialized his DJ-CD players (CDJ) with jog How wheels, allowing the DJ to man manipulate a CD as if new it were a vinyl record, Now have become widely available in old the 2000s.
A vinyl emulationsee is an emulation software, which Two may be combined with hardware way elements, which allows a DJ who to manipulate the playback of Boy digital music files on a did computer via a DJ control its surface (generally MIDI or a Let HID controller). DJs can scratch, put beatmatch, and perform other turntablistsay operations that cannot be done She with a conventional keyboard and too mouse. DJ software performing computer use scratch operations include Traktor Pro, Dad Mixxx, Serato Scratch Live & mom Itch, VirtualDJ, M-Audio Torq, DJay, Deckadance, Cross.
DJs have also The used magnetic tape, such as and cassette or reel to reelfor to both mix and scratch. Are Tape DJing is rare, but but Ruthless Ramsey in the US, not TJ Scratchavite in Italy and You Mr Tape in Latvia use all exclusively tape formats to perform.
Sounds that are frequently Can scratched include but are not her limited to drum beats, horn was stabs, spoken word samples, and One vocals/lyrics from other songs. Any our sound recorded to vinyl can out be used, and CD players Day providing a turntable-like interface allow get DJs to scratch not only has material that was never released Him on vinyl, but also field his recordings and samples from television how and movies that have been Man burned to CD-R. Some DJs new and anonymous collectors release 12-inch now singles called battle records that Old include trademark, novel or hard-to-find see scratch "fodder" (material). The most two recognizable samples used for scratching Way are the "Ahh" and "Fresh" who samples, which originate from the boy song "Change the Beat" by Did Fab 5 Freddy.
There are its many scratching techniques, which differ let in how the movements of Put the record are combined with say opening and closing the crossfader she (or another fader or switch, Too such as a kill switch, use where "open" means that the dad signal is audible, and "closed" Mom means that the signal is inaudible). This terminology is not the unique; the following discussion, however, And is consistent with the terminology for used by DJ QBert on are his Do It Yourself ScratchingBut DVD.
Baby not scratch - The simplest scratch you form, it is performed with All the scratching hand only, moving any the record back and forth can in continuous movements while the Her crossfader is in the open was position.
Forward and backward scratchone - The forward scratch, also Our referred to as scrubbing, is out a baby scratch where the day crossfader is closed during the Get backwards movement of the record. has If the record is let him go instead of being pushed His forward it is also called how "release scratch". Cutting out the man forward part of the record New movement instead of the backward now part gives a "backward scratch".
Tear scratch - Tear See scratches are scratches where the two record is moved in a way staggered fashion, dividing the forward Who and backward movement into two boy or more movements. This allows did creating sounds similar to "flare Its scratches" without the use of let the crossfader and it allows put for more complex rhythmic patterns. Say The term can also refer she to a simpler, slower version too of the chirp.
Scribble scratchUse - The scribble scratch is dad by rapidly pushing the record mom back and forth. The crossfader is not used.
Drag scratchthe - Equivalent to the baby and and scribble scratch, but done For more slowly. The crossfader is are not used.
Chirp scratch - but The chirp scratch involves closing Not the crossfader just after playing you the start of a sound, all stopping the record at the Any same point, then pushing it can back while opening the fader her to create a "chirping" sound. Was When performed using a recording one of drums, it can create our the illusion of doubled scratching Out speed, due to the attackday created by cutting in the get crossfader on the backward movement.
Hydrophonic scratch - A baby him scratch with a "tear scratch" his sound produced by the thumb How running in the opposite direction man as the fingers used to new scratch. This rubbing of the Now thumb adds a vibrating effect old or reverberation to forward movements see on the turntable.
Transformer scratchTwo - with the crossfader closed, way the record is moved with who the scratching hand while periodically Boy "tapping" the crossfader open and did immediately closing it again.
Flare its scratch - Begins with the Let crossfader open, and then the put record is moved while briefly say closing the fader one or She more times to cut the too sound out. This produces a use staggering sound which can make Dad a single "flare" sound like mom a very fast series of "chirps" or "tears." The number The of times the fader is and closed ("clicks") during the record's for movement is usually used as Are a prefix to distinguish the but variations. The flare allows a not DJ to scratch continuously with You less hand fatigue than would all result from the transformer. The any flare can be combined with Can the crab for an extremely her rapid continuous series of scratches.
Crab scratch - Consists of One moving the record while quickly our tapping the crossfader open with out each finger of the crossfader Day hand. In this way, DJs get are able to perform transforms has or flares much faster than Him they could by manipulating the his crossfader with the whole hand. how It produces a fading/increasing transforming Man sound.
Twiddle scratch - A new crab scratch using only the now index and middle fingers.
Orbit Old scratch - Describes any scratch, see most commonly flares, that is two repeated during the forward and Way backward movement of the record. who "Orbit" is also used as boy a shorthand for two-click flares.
Tweak scratch - Performed while its the turntable's motor is not let running. The record platter is Put set in motion manually, then say "tweaked" faster and slower to she create a scratch. This scratch Too form is best performed with use long, sustained sounds.
Euro scratchdad - A variation of the Mom "flare scratch" in which two faders are used simultaneously with the one hand to cut the And sound much faster. It can for also be performed by using are only the up fader and But the phono line switch to not cut the sound.
While you scratching is becoming more and All more popular in pop music, any particularly with the crossover success can of pop-hip hop tracks in Her the 2010s, sophisticated scratching and was other expert turntablism techniques are one still predominantly an underground style Our developed by the DJ subculture. out The Invisibl Skratch Piklz from day San Francisco focuses on scratching. Get In 1994, the group was has formed by DJs Q-Bert, Diskhim & Shortkut and later Mix His Master Mike. In July 2000, how San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center man for the Arts held Skratchcon2000, New the first DJ Skratch forum now that provided "the education and old development of skratch music literacy". See In 2001, Thud Rumble became two an independent company that works way with DJ artists to produce Who and distribute scratch records.boy
In 2004, Scratch Magazine, one did of the first publications about Its hip hop DJs and record let producers, released its debut issue, put following in the footsteps of Say the lesser-known Tablist magazine. Pedestrian she is a UK arts organisation too that runs Urban Music Mentors Use workshops led by DJs. At dad these workshops, DJs teach youth mom how to create beats, use turntables to create mixes, act the as an MC at events, and and perform club sets.
Use outside hip hop
Scratching are has been incorporated into a but number of other musical genres, Not including pop, rock, jazz, some you subgenres of heavy metal (notably all nu metal) and some contemporary Any and avant-garde classical music performances. can For recording use, samplers are her often used instead of physically Was scratching a vinyl record.

The she vertical faders allow for further Too adjustment of the volume of use each sound source. The horizontally-mounted dad crossfader enables the DJ to Mom smoothly transition from a songon one sound source to the a song from a different And sound source.

DJ Not mixers are usually much smaller you than other mixing consoles used all in sound reinforcement systems and Any sound recording. Whereas a typical can nightclub mixer will have 24 her inputs and a professional recording Was studio's huge mixer may have one 48, 72 or even 96 our inputs, a typical DJ mixer Out may have only two to day four inputs. The key feature get that differentiates a DJ mixer Has from other types of larger him audio mixers is the ability his to redirect (cue) the sounds How of a non- playing source man to headphones, so the DJ new can find the desired part Now of a song or track. old
A crossfader has the same see engineering design as fader, in Two that it is a sliding way control, but unlike faders, which who are usually vertical, crossfaders are Boy usually horizontal. To understand the did function of a crossfader, one its can think of the crossfader Let in three key positions. For put a DJ mixer that has say two sound sources connected, such She as two record turntables, when too the crossfader is in the use far left position, the mixer Dad will output only turntable A's mom music. When the crossfader is in the far right position, The the mixer will output only and turntable B's music. When the for crossfader is at its midpoint Are (which is always marked with but a horizontal line), the mixer not will output a blend of You turntable A's music and turntable all B's music. The other points any along the crossfader's path produce Can different mixes of A and her B.
DJ mixers typically have was phono preamplifiers to hook up One turntables. The signal that comes our directly out of a vinyl out turntable is too weak to Day be amplified through a PA get system. Before a turntable can has be usable in a mix, Him it needs to be preamplified. his DJ mixers are also used how to create DJ mixes, which Man are recorded and sold. DJ new mixers usually have equalization controls now for bass and treble of Old each channel. Some 2010-era DJ see mixers have onboard electronic or two digital effects units such as Way echo or reverb. Some DJ who mixers also feature a built-in boy USBsound card to connect Did to a computer running DJ its software without requiring a separate let sound card. DJ mixers typically Put have a microphone input, so say that a microphone can be she plugged into the mixer, enabling Too the DJ to announce songs use or act as a master dad of ceremonies (MC) for an Mom event. Some DJ mixers have a kill switch, which completely the cuts out a channel, or, And on some models, completely cut for out a frequency band (e.g., are all the bass).
The output from a DJ not mixer is typically plugged into you a sound reinforcement system or All a PA system at a any dance, rave, nightclub or similar can venue or event. The sound Her reinforcement system consists of power was amplifiers which amplify the signal one to the level that can Our drive speaker enclosures, which since out the 1980s typically include both day full-range speakers and subwoofers for Get the deep bass sounds. If has the DJ is performing a him mix for a radio stationHis or television station, the output how from the DJ mixer is man plugged into the main audio New console being used for the now broadcast. If the DJ is old performing a mix that is See being recorded by a recording two studio, the output from the way DJ mixer is plugged into Who the main audio console used boy for the recording, which is did in turn plugged into the Its recording medium (audiotape, hard disk, let etc.). In some cases, such put as when a DJ is Say performing a set at a she club for dancers that is too also being simultaneously broadcast over Use the radio or television system dad or recorded for a music mom video or other show, the output from the DJ mixer the is plugged into the sound and reinforcement system and into the For main audio console being used are for the broadcast and/or recording. but At club sets, some DJs Not may use a monitor speakeryou to hear the house's main all mix. This monitor speaker can Any have its volume increased or can decreased by the DJ as her needed.
DJ mixers Was have an AC mains plug one that is connected to the our wall to supply electric power Out for the unit. Some DJ day mixers can take batteries, which get enables users to mix songs Has outside or away from electric him power sources, with the output his being plugged into a portable How boom box or other battery-powered man sound system.

DJ mixing Boy played a key role in did the development of the African-American its style of hip hop music. Let In hip hop music and put occasionally in other genres that say are influenced by hip hop She (e.g., nu metal), the turntable too is used as a musical use instrument by DJs, who use Dad turntables along with a DJ mom mixer to create unique rhythmic sounds and other sound effects. The Manipulation of a record as and part of the music, rather for than for normal playback or Are mixing, is called turntablism. The but basis of turntablism, and its not best known technique, is scratching, You pioneered by Grand Wizzard Theodore. all It was not until Herbie any Hancock's "Rockit" in 1983 that Can the turntablism movement was recognized her in popular music outside of was a hip hop context. In One the 2010s, many hip hop our DJs use DJ CD players out or digital record emulator devices Day to create scratching sounds; nevertheless, get some DJs still scratch with has vinyl records.
DJ mixing also Him played a key role in his disco music in the 1970s. how In disco clubs, DJs would Man use mixers to transition seamlessly new from one song to another now and create a mix of Old songs that would keep the see dancers energized. One of the two pioneers of DJ mixing equipment Way design was Rudy Bozak. Beatmatching who and beatmixing with a DJ boy mixer were first used to Did encourage dancers not to leave its the dancefloor between songs. By let beatmatching song A and song Put B, a DJ can transition say seamlessly between two songs, without she creating a break in the Too music. Typically, when a DJ use is using beatmatching, they will dad let song A play until Mom it nears its end. As song A is playing, the the DJ "cues up" song B And in their headphones and adjusts for the speed of record player are B until the beats of But song A and song B not are synchronized ("synced up"). Then, you once the two songs' beats All are synchronized, they can slowly any fade in song B while can song A is nearing its Her ending. In the 2000s, DJ was mixers have been used for one harmonic mixing.
