Scratch Experiment #16 – Layering Scratch Samples

March 1, 2012 Leave a comment

Last night I started playing around with layering additional sounds on top of the classic “Ahhh” and “Fresh” scratch sample.  The sample is repeated four times. The first one is combined with a spacey/alien sample, the second is combined with an orchestral style style stab, the third is the classic air horn and the fourth is a random vocal sample with a lot of FX.

Right click on the link below and Save As. The file type is WAV.

Anyone who knows me (Mr MixTrain aka SmiTTTen aka Fatter Agnus aka Raging Doris) will tell you how much I loathe Dubstep.  As far as I am concerned, it’s just a bunch of synthesizers with chronic speech impediments catering to the needs of the great unwashed.  That in mind, I set the crew a task, put together an hour’s mix that represents Dubstep for the more refined generation.  No annoying stammering bass lines or Wall Streetesque drops that the kids can nod to.

What they created was 60 minutes of Dubstep music that I don’t hate.  When it comes to this genre, this is without doubt, the highest level of praise imaginable. So, it’s actually very good and you should listen to it.

Vestax Pad-One Traktor FX TSI

September 30, 2011 Leave a comment

 

I just started messing around with the Vestax Pad-One. The Pad-One is like the Korg Nanopad only it’s built to last. I have already been playing with it for a while now and love the velocity sensitive pads and the XY pad.

I created a TSI that uses all 4 FX banks. All 4 banks are in group mode. To engage a particular bank  hold down one of the four buttons on the Pad-One and use the XY pad to change the amounts.

You can use them individually or in combinations. The main purpose of the TSI file is to act as a framework. Everything is set up so that all you have to do is go into Traktor’s Controller Manager and change the SELECT EFFECT parameter to whatever you want.

This is very basic but it’s start for someone who wants to play around with the Pad-One without getting into Traktor’s Controller Manager.

Download TSI

I will upload a more developed TSI as and when I do more with it.

Having taken most of the summer off to work on solo projects, sun tans and rehab, one could be forgiven for thinking that IMTC crew should be sprinting off the start line like a terrier strapped to an Exocet.  The reality is that is has taken two thirds of an ice age to get the first trains of the new season out of the gate. That is of course with the exception of a crack team of mix-ninjas who crafted this house-tech mix seemingly in a matter of minutes.
