AfroDJMac has introduced the ADM Vinyl Scratcher, a free vinyl scratcher effect device for Ableton Live.
Record scratching is a trademark in many genres of electronic music. But the idea of lugging around another piece of gear just doesn’t seem worth it to me (and a record player would be a rather larger addition). Oh yea, plus I don’t really know how to scratch on vinyl anyway.
I don’t feel bad admitting that because, despite the name AfroDJMac, I’m not a DJ. In my mind, what I do is closer to a singer with a guitar and some effect pedals than DJ-ing. So, since I can’t scratch vinyl or even want to learn at risk of having to carrying around extraneous equipment, I created an Ableton Live Rack to do the job.
The ADM Vinyl Scratcher for Ableton Live is a free download.
