The Scratchbox cometh...
The Scratchbox cometh...
Posted by Gizmo on December 19, 2005 :

While we all patiently wait for what seems like an eternity (didn't I post the first story back in the 70's?) for the Rodec Scratchbox, actual honest-to-god footage of one being used in the wild has emerged. On the cut is DJ Crossfingaz. I'm still sceptical myself... you can do anything with video editing and CGI these days. I'll believe it when I see it in the skratchlab. :P

Anyway, here's the link - http://www.realtablist.com/clips/cross-scratchbox.mov - and yes it's Quicktime so for those of you who haven't already done so, toddle off to the Apple site for a quick download.

Wrong!

the kids awesome, have cut with him on a few occasions,a nd he's gto a really nice flo about him... he's just flexing there, when he sits in the pocket and cuts he's really gentle to listen to...

similar in style to 2tall actually...

Of course. He has a skills tho. Just that I donīt think has the funkydelic flow in this session.

Many turntabelist copies each others styles. I have heard simmylar sessions from a lot of dudes, using the same style. I have named this style : "Wierd downtempo - with fast handmovement - combined with slow drags/tears - teknik mastrubating.



And by the way.. the style naming is a joke.

Well I'm in China right now and I took the scratchox with me and I must say this mixer is so GOOD! The sound's incredible, a lot of dj's over here were very impressed by the performance and the responsive faders of this mixer, but don't take my word for it. ^_^

The local scene had me stunned!
