One of the extras featured on my DVD album 'Scattered'. The grading and film effects were created using Chromanator.

Awsome, dude! I've always wanted to scratch, and now I know a few things about it when I'm gonna try... That was a sweet tutorial, I thought that was very cool! Good job!

Wow i wish i had this 2 years ago when i still owned my turntables and mixer. But still a great tutorial. Just a few very minor things. Only in about 2 places ur voice was very unaudible. Other then that It was awsome. 5/5 smile (almost makes me want to pick up the turntables agein)

Thanks for the positive feedback smile I'm glad people find it interesting even if they have no intention of trying it. Hopefully I'll release a follow up at some point

pretty tight, def a good tut. just curious but do you have any recommended records for scratching? I’ve noticed its almost just as hard to find a good record as it is to learn the basics biggrin

also any good places online to buy records from?

I buy most of my vinyl from here or here. They both do sections on DJ 'tools' which include vinyl pressed for scratching, but hey, when you get really good you should be able to scratch with anything wink And yes, HL2 definately rules. Click on my sig to find out why biggrin

DJ Fallen:

Really nice stuff. My friend DJ Enferno was the DMC USA Champion and Runner up in the DMC World Finals in 2003. So I can appreciate how difficult the art of spinnin' This is a good tutorial, especially to those that have never seen the technical aspects of scratchin'

The grading you applied gave it a nice underground feel, which is always a nice detail.

When you demonstrate all the types of scratches at the end, it would have been nice to indicate the types of scratches you're doing (i.e. a label on the bottom left side of the screen).

And although you would need a 2nd camera or some clever editing, I thought you should have done a split screen when you're doing the more difficult scratches. Do you plan on doing more advanced stuff like crab scratches ?

Regardless, I couldn't give this less than a 5! Thanks for sharing this.

im just wondering why this is even on fxhome. dont get me wrong he was really good and it was intresting to watch but it wasnt a film with a story or actors... it wasnt a film you would go to the theater and watch. it was an online turntable lesson.

good but wasnt right for an amature film maker websight biggrin


3/5 for tight editing
