Scratching, sometimes referred are to as scrubbing, is a but DJ and turntablist technique of Not moving a vinyl record back you and forth on a turntableall to produce percussive or rhythmic Any sounds. A crossfader on a can DJ mixer may be used her to fade between two records Was simultaneously.
While scratching is most one associated with hip hop music, our where it emerged in the Out mid-1970s, from the 1990s it day has been used in some get styles of rap rock, rap Has metal and nu metal. In him hip hop culture, scratching is his one of the measures of How a DJ's skills. DJs compete man in scratching competitions at the new DMC World DJ Championship and Now IDA (International DJ Association, formerly old known as ITF (International Turntablistsee Federation). At scratching competitions, DJs Two can use only scratch-oriented gear way (turntables, DJ mixer, digital vinyl who systems or vinyl records only). Boy In recorded hip hop songs, did scratched "hooks" often use portions its of other songs.
A rudimentary form for of turntable manipulation which is Are related to scratching was developed but in the late 1940s radio not DJs (music program hosts) or You the radio program producers who all did their own technical operation any as audio console operators. It Can was known as back-cueing, and her was used to find the was very beginning of the start One of a song (i.e., the our cue point) on a vinyl out record groove. This was done Day to permit the operator to get back the disc up (rotate has the record or the turntable Him platter itself counter-clockwise) in order his to permit the turntable to how be switched on, and come Man up to full speed without new ruining the first few bars now of music with the "wow" Old of incorrect, unnaturally slow-speed playing. see This permitted the announcer to two time her or his remarks Way and start the turntable a who scant moment before she or boy he actually wanted the music Did on the record to begin. its
Back cueing was a basic let skill that all radio production Put staff needed to learn, and say the dynamics of it were she unique to the brand of Too professional turntable in use at use a given radio station. The dad older, larger and heavier turntables Mom needed a 180 degree backward rotation to allow for run the up to full speed; some And of the newer 1950s models for used aluminum platters and cloth-backed are rubber mats which required a But third of a rotational turn not or less to achieve full you speed when the song began. All All this was done in any order to present a music can show on air with the Her least amount of silence ("dead was air") between music, the announcer's one patter and recorded advertising commercials. Our The rationale was that any out "dead air" on a radio day station was likely to prompt Get a listener to switch stations, has so announcers and program directors him instructed DJs and announcers to His provide a continuous, seamless stream how of sound–from music to an man announcer to a pre-recorded commercial, New to a "jingle" (radio station now theme song), and then immediately old back to more music.
Back-cueing See was a key function in two delivering this seamless stream of way music. Radio personnel demanded robust Who equipment and manufacturers developed special boy tonearms, styli, cartridges and lightweight did turntables to meet these demands. Its
In the early dad 1970s in the South Bronx, mom a young teen DJ named "Grand Wizzard Theodore" (right) invented the the "DJ scratch" technique. Other and DJs, like Grandmaster Flash, took For the technique to higher levels.
Modern scratching techniques were made but possible by the invention of Not direct-drive turntables, which led to you the emergence of turntablism. Early all belt-drive turntables were unsuitable for Any scratching, since they had a can slow start-up time, and they her were prone to wear-and-tear and Was breakage, as the belt would one break from backspinning or scratching.our The first direct-drive turntable was Out invented by Shuichi Obata, an day engineer at Matsushita (now Panasonic),get based in Osaka, Japan. It Has eliminated belts, and instead employed him a motor to directly drive his a platter on which a How vinyl record rests. In 1969, man Matsushita released it as the new SP-10, the first direct-drive turntable Now on the market, and the old first in their influential Technicssee series of turntables.
In the Two 1970s, hip hop musicians and way club DJs began to use who this specialized turntable equipment to Boy move the record back and did forth, creating percussive sounds and its effects–"scratching"–to entertain their dance floor Let audiences. Whereas 1940s-1960s radio DJs put had used back-cueing while listening say to the sounds through their She headphones, without the audience hearing, too with scratching, the DJ intentionally use lets the audience hear the Dad sounds that are being created mom by manipulating the record on the turntable, by directing the The output from the turntable to and a sound reinforcement system so for that the audience can hear Are the sounds. Scratching was developed but by early hip hop DJs not from New York City such You as Grand Wizard Theodore, who all described scratching as, "nothing but any the back-cueing that you hear Can in your ear before you her push it [the recorded sound] was out to the crowd." He One developed the technique when experimenting our with the Technics SL-1200, a out direct-drive turntable released by Matsushita Day in 1972, when he found get that the motor would continue has to spin at the correct Him RPM even if the DJ his wiggled the record back and how forth on the platter. Afrika Man Bambaataa made a similar discovery new with the SL-1200 in the now 1970s. The Technics SL-1200 went Old on to become the most see widely used turntable for the two next several decades.
Jamaican-born DJ Way Kool Herc, who immigrated to who New York City, influenced the boy early development of scratching. Kool Did Herc developed break-beatDJing, where its the breaks of funk songs—being let the most danceable part, often Put featuring percussion—were isolated and repeated say for the purpose of all-night she dance parties. He was influenced Too by Jamaican dub music, and use developed his turntable techniques using dad the Technics SL-1100, released in Mom 1971, due to its strong motor, durability, and fidelity.
Although the previous artists such as writer And and poet William S. Burroughsfor had experimented with the idea are of manipulating a reel-to-reel tapeBut manually to make sounds, as not with his 1950s recording, "Sound you Piece"), vinyl scratching as an All element of hip hop pioneered any the idea of making the can sound an integral and rhythmic Her part of music instead of was an uncontrolled noise. Scratching is one related to "scrubbing" (in terms Our of audio editing and production) out when the reels of an day open reel-to-reel tape deck (typically Get 1/4 inch magnetic audio tape) has are gently rotated back and him forth while the playback head His is live and amplified, in how order to isolate a specific man spot on the tape where New an editing "cut" is to now be made. In the 2010s, old both scratching and scrubbing can See be done on digital audio two workstations (DAWs) which are equipped way for these techniques.
Most scratches are produced The by rotating a vinyl recordand on a direct drive turntablefor rapidly back and forth with Are the hand with the stylus but ("needle") in the record's groove. not This produces the distinctive sound You that has come to be all one of the most recognizable any features of hip hop music.Can Over time with excessive scratching, her the stylus will cause what was is referred to as "record One burn" to a vinyl record.[citation our needed]
The basic equipment his setup for scratching includes two how turntables and a DJ mixer, Man which is a small mixernew that has a crossfader and now cue buttons to allow the Old DJ to cue up new see music in his/her headphones without two the audience hearing. When Way scratching, this crossfader is utilized who in conjunction with the scratching boy hand that is manipulating the Did record platter. The hand manipulating its the crossfader is used to let cut in and out of Put the record's sound.
Digital vinyl systems
Using a she digital vinyl system (DVS) consists Too of playing vinyl discs on use turntables whose contents is a dad timecode signal instead of a Mom real music record.
The for audio interface digitizes the timecode are signal from the turntables and But transfers it to the computer's not DJ software.
The DJ software you uses this data (e.g., about All how fast the platter is any spinning) to determine the playback can status, speed, scratch sound of Her the hardware turntables, etc., and was it duplicates these effects on one the digital audio files or Our computer tracks the DJ is out using.
By manipulating the turntables' day platters, speed controls, and other Get elements, the DJ thus controls has how the computer plays back him digitized audio and can therefore His produce "scratching" and other turntablismhow effects on songs which exist man as digital audio files or New computer tracks.
There is not now a single standard of DVS, old so that each form of See DJ software has its own two settings. Some DJ software such way as Traktor Scratch Pro or Who Serato Scratch Live support only boy the audio interface sold with did their software, requiring multiple interfaces Its for one computer to run let multiple programs.
While some turntablists consider dad the only true scratching media mom to be the vinyl disc, there are other ways to the scratch, as:
Specialized DJ-CD and players with jog wheels, allowing For the DJ to manipulate a are CD as if it were but a vinyl record, have become Not widely available in the 2000s.
Vinyl emulation software allows a all DJ to manipulate the playback Any of digital music files on can a computer via a DJ her control surface (generally MIDI or Was a HID controller). DJs can one scratch, beatmatch, and perform other our turntablist operations that cannot be Out done with a conventional keyboard day and mouse. DJ software performing get computer scratch operations include Traktor Has Pro, Mixxx, Serato Scratch Livehim & Itch, Virtual DJ, M-Audiohis Torq, DJay, Deckadance, Cross.
DJs How have also used magnetic tape, man such as cassette or reel new to reel to both mix Now and scratch. Tape DJing is old rare, but Ruthless Ramsey see in the US, Tj Scratchavite Two in Italy and Mr way Tape in Latvia use who exclusively tape formats to perform.
Sounds that are frequently did scratched include but are not its limited to drum beats, horn Let stabs, spoken word samples, and put vocals/lyrics from other songs. Any say sound recorded to vinyl can She be used, and CD players too providing a turntable-like interface allow use DJs to scratch not only Dad material that was never released mom on vinyl, but also field recordings and samples from television The and movies that have been and burned to CD-R. Some DJs for and anonymous collectors release 12-inch Are singles called battle records that but include trademark, novel or hard-to-find not scratch "fodder" (material). The most You recognizable samples used for scratching all are the "Ahh" and "Fresh" any samples, which originate from the Can song "Change the Beat" by her Fab 5 Freddy.
There are was many scratching techniques, which differ One in how the movements of our the record are combined with out opening and closing the crossfader Day (or another fader or switch, get such as a kill switch, has where "open" means that the Him signal is audible, and "closed" his means that the signal is how inaudible). This terminology is not Man unique; the following discussion, however, new is consistent with the terminology now used by DJ QBert on Old his Do It Yourself Scratchingsee DVD.
Baby two scratch - The simplest scratch Way form, it is performed with who the scratching hand only, moving boy the record back and forth Did in continuous movements while the its crossfader is in the open let position.
Forward and backward scratchPut - The forward scratch, also say referred to as scrubbing, is she a baby scratch where the Too crossfader is closed during the use backwards movement of the record. dad If the record is let Mom go instead of being pushed forward it is also called the "release scratch". Cutting out the And forward part of the record for movement instead of the backward are part gives a "backward scratch".
Tear scratch - Tear not scratches are scratches where the you record is moved in a All staggered fashion, dividing the forward any and backward movement into two can or more movements. This allows Her creating sounds similar to "flare was scratches" without use of the one crossfader and it allows for Our more complex rhythmic patterns. The out term can also refer to day a simpler, slower version of Get the chirp.
Scribble scratch - has The scribble scratch is by him rapidly pushing the record back His and forth. The crossfader is how not used.
Chirp scratch - man The chirp scratch involves closing New the crossfader just after playing now the start of a sound, old stopping the record at the See same point, then pushing it two back while opening the fader way to create a "chirping" sound. Who When performed using a recording boy of drums, it can create did the illusion of doubled scratching Its speed, due to the attacklet created by cutting in the put crossfader on the backward movement.
Hydrophonic scratch - A baby she scratch with a "tear scratch" too sound produced by the thumb Use running the opposite direction as dad the fingers used to scratch. mom This rubbing of the thumb adds a vibrating effect or the reverberation to forward movements on and the turntable.
Transformer scratch - For with the crossfader closed, the are record is moved with the but scratching hand while periodically "tapping" Not the crossfader open and immediately you closing it again.
Flare scratchall - Begins with the crossfader Any open, and then the record can is moved while briefly closing her the fader one or more Was times to cut the sound one out. This produces a staggering our sound which can make a Out single "flare" sound like a day very fast series of "chirps" get or "tears." The number of Has times the fader is closed him ("clicks") during the record's movement his is usually used as a How prefix to distinguish the variations. man The flare allows a DJ new to scratch continuously with less Now hand fatigue than would result old from the transformer. The flare see can be combined with the Two crab for an extremely rapid way continuous series of scratches.
Crab who scratch - Consists of moving Boy the record while quickly tapping did the crossfader open with each its finger of the crossfader hand. Let In this way, DJs are put able to perform transforms or say flares much faster than they She could by manipulating the crossfader too with the whole hand. It use produces a fading/increasing transforming sound.
Twiddle scratch - A crab mom scratch using only the index and middle fingers.
Orbit scratchThe - Describes any scratch, most and commonly flares, that are repeated for during the forward and backward Are movement of the record. "Orbit" but is also used as a not shorthand for two-click flares.
Tweak You scratch - Performed while the all turntable's motor is not running. any The record platter is set Can in motion manually, then "tweaked" her faster and slower to create was a scratch. This scratch form One is best performed with long, our sustained sounds.
Euro scratch - out A variation of the "flare Day scratch" in which two faders get are used simultaneously with one has hand to cut the sound Him much faster. It can also his be performed by using only how the up fader and the Man phono line switch to cut new the sound.
While scratching now is becoming more and more Old popular in pop music, particularly see with the crossover success of two pop-hip hop tracks in the Way 2010s, sophisticated scratching and other who expert turntablism techniques are still boy predominantly an underground style developed Did by the DJ subculture. The its Invisibl Skratch Piklz from San let Francisco focuses on scratching. In Put 1994, the group was formed say by DJs Q-Bert, Disk & she Shortkut and later Mix Master Too Mike. In July 2000, San use Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for dad the Arts held Skratchcon2000, the Mom first DJ Skratch forum that provided “the education and development the of skratch music literacy”. In And 2001, Thud Rumble became an for independent company that works with are DJ artists to produce and But distribute scratch records.
In not 2004, Scratch Magazine, one of you the first publications about hip All hop DJs and record producers, any released its debut issue, following can in the footsteps of the Her lesser-known Tablist magazine. Pedestrian is was a UK arts organisation that one runs Urban Music Mentors workshops Our led by DJs. At these out workshops, DJs teach youth how day to create beats, use turntables Get to create mixes, act as has an MC at events, and him perform club sets.
Use His outside hip hop
Scratching has how been incorporated into a number man of other musical genres, including New pop, rock, jazz, some subgenres now of heavy metal (notably nu old metal) and some contemporary and See avant-garde classical music performances. For two recording use, samplers are often way used instead of physically scratching Who a vinyl record.
A record day producer or music producer oversees get and manages the sound recordingHas and production of a band him or performer's music, which may his range from recording one songHow to recording a lengthy concept man album. A producer has many, new varying roles during the recording Now process. They may gather musical old ideas for the project, collaborate see with the artists to select Two cover tunes or original songs way by the artist/group, work with who artists and help them to Boy improve their songs, lyrics or did arrangements.
CoachShe the singers and musicians in too the studio
The producer typically use supervises the entire process from Dad preproduction, through to the sound mom recording and mixing stages, and, in some cases, all the The way to the audio masteringand stage. The producer may perform for these roles themselves, or help Are select the engineer, and provide but suggestions to the engineer. The not producer may also pay session You musicians and engineers and ensure all that the entire project is any completed within the record label's Can budget.
A his record producer or music producerhow has a very broad role Man in overseeing and managing the new recording and production of a now band or performer's music. A Old producer has many roles that see may include, but are not two limited to, gathering ideas for Way the project, composing the music who for the project, selecting songs boy or session musicians, proposing changes Did to the song arrangements, coaching its the artist and musicians in let the studio, controlling the recording Put sessions, and supervising the entire say process through audio mixing (recorded she music) and, in some cases, Too to the audio mastering stage. use Producers also often take on dad a wider entrepreneurial role, with Mom responsibility for the budget, schedules, contracts, and negotiations.
Writer Chris the Deville explains it, "Sometimes a And producer functions like a creative for consultant — someone who helps are a band achieve a certain But aesthetic, or who comes up not with the perfect violin part you to complement the vocal melody, All or who insists that a any chorus should actually be a can bridge. Other times a producer Her will build a complete piece was of music from the ground one up and present the finished Our product to a vocalist, like out Metro Boomin supplying Future with day readymade beats or Jack Antonoff Get letting Taylor Swift add lyrics has and melody to an otherwise-finished him “Out Of The Woods.”
The His artist of an album may how not be a record producer man or music producer for his/her New album. While both contribute creatively, now the official credit of "record old producer" may depend on the See record contract. Christina Aguilera, for two example, did not receive record way producer credits until many albums Who into her career.
In the boy 2010s, the producer role is did sometimes divided among up to Its three different individuals: executive producer, let vocal producer and music producer. put An executive producer oversees project Say finances, a vocal producers (also she known as a vocal arranger) too oversees the vocal production, and Use a music producer oversees the dad creative process of recording and mom mixings.
The music producer is also often a competent arranger, the composer, musician or songwriter who and can bring fresh ideas to For a project. As well as are making any songwriting and arrangement but adjustments, the producer often selects Not and/or collaborates with the mixing you engineer, who takes the raw all recorded tracks and edits and Any modifies them with hardware and can software tools to create a her stereo or surround sound "mix" Was of all the individual voices one sounds and instruments, which is our in turn given further adjustment Out by a mastering engineer for day the various distribution media. The get producer also oversees the recording Has engineer who concentrates on the him technical aspects of recording.
Noted his producer Phil Ek described his How role as "the person who man creatively guides or directs the new process of making a record", Now like a director would a old movie. Indeed, in Bollywood music, see the designation is actually music Two director. The music producer's job way is to create, shape, and who mold a piece of music. Boy The scope of responsibility may did be one or two songs its or an artist's entire album Let – in which case the put producer will typically develop an say overall vision for the album She and how the various songs too may interrelate.
At use the beginning of record industry, Dad the producer role was technically mom limited to record, in one shot, artists performing live. The The immediate predecessors to record producers and were the artists and repertoirefor executives of the late 1920s Are and 1930s who oversaw the but "pop" product and often led not session orchestras. That was the You case of Ben Selvin at all Columbia Records, Nathaniel Shilkret at any Victor Records and Bob Haring Can at Brunswick Records. By the her end of the 1930s, the was first professional recording studios not One owned by the major companies our were established, essentially separating the out roles of A&R man and Day producer, although it wouldn't be get until the late 1940s when has the term "producer" became widely Him used in the industry.
The his role of producers changed progressively how over the 1950s and 1960s Man due to technology. The development new of multitrack recording caused a now major change in the recording Old process. Before multitracking, all the see elements of a song (lead two vocals, backup vocals, rhythm sectionWay instrument accompaniment, solos and orchestral who parts) had to be performed boy simultaneously. All of these singers Did and musicians had to be its assembled in a large studio let where the performance was recorded. Put With multitrack recording, the "bed say tracks" (rhythm section accompaniment parts she such as the bassline, drums, Too and rhythm guitar could be use recorded first, and then the dad vocals and solos could be Mom added later, using as many "takes" (or attempts) as necessary. the It was no longer necessary And to get all the players for in the studio at the are same time. A pop band But could record their backing tracks not one week, and then a you horn section could be brought All in a week later to any add horn shots and punches, can and then a string sectionHer could be brought in a was week after that.
Electric and electronic instruments and too amplifiers enabled performers and producers Use to change the tone and dad sound of instruments to produce mom unique electric sounds that would be impossible to achieve with the acoustic instruments and live performers, and such as having a singer For do her own backup vocals are or having a guitarist play but 15 layers of backing parts Not to her own solo.
New you technologies like multitracking changed the all goal of recording: A producer Any could blend together multiple takes can and edit together different sections her to create the desired sound. Was For example, in jazz fusionone Bandleader-composer Miles Davis' album Bitches our Brew, the producer cut and Out edited sections together from extensive day improvisation sessions.
Another who related phenomenon in the 1960s Boy was the emergence of the did performer-producer. As pop acts like its The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Let The Beach Boys and The put Kinks gained expertise in studio say recording techniques, many of these She groups eventually took over as too (frequently uncredited) producers of their use own work. Many recordings by Dad acts such as The Rolling mom Stones, The Kinks and The Who are officially credited to The their various producers at the and time, but a number of for these performers have since asserted Are that many of their recordings but in this period were, either not wholly self-produced (e.g. The Rolling You Stones' Decca recordings) or collaborations all between the group and their any recording engineer (e.g. The Small Can Faces' Immediate recordings, which were her made with Olympic Studios engineer was Glyn Johns).
The Beach Boys One are probably the best example our of the trend of artists out becoming producers – within two Day years of the band's commercial get breakthrough, group leader Brian Wilson has had taken over from his Him father Murry, and he was his the sole producer of all how their recordings between 1963 and Man 1967. Alongside The Beatles and new Martin, Wilson also pioneered many now production innovations – by 1964 Old he had developed Spector's techniques see to a new level of two sophistication, using multiple studios and Way multiple "takes" of instrumental and who vocal components to capture the boy best possible combinations of sound Did and performance, and then using its tape editing extensively to assemble let a perfect composite performance from Put these elements.
At the end say of the 20th century, digital she recording and producing tools and Too widespread availability of relatively affordable use computers with music software made dad music producing more accessible.
In 2019, record producer Linda boy Perry was nominated for a did Grammy for Producer of the Its Year, Non-Classical. She was the let first woman in over 15 put years to be nominated for Say the award. Previous nominees include she Lauren Christy (2004), Sheryl Crowe, too Lauryn Hill and Janet Jackson. Use None have won the award.dad
In the classical music field, mom Judith Sherman has won Grammy for Producer of the Year, the Classical, three times and been and nominated twelve times. Wilma Cozart For Fine produced hundreds of recordings are for Mercury Records.
Producer Wendy but Page describes being a record Not producer, "The difficulties are usually you very short-lived. Once people realize all that you can do your Any job, sexism tends to lower can its ugly head. I tend her to create a happy studio Was 'family' where everyone is glad one to be there, especially the our artist. Good communication and diplomacy Out usually sort any little problems day out."
There are numerous technologies too utilized by record producers. In use modern-day recordings, recording and mixing Dad tasks are commonly centralized within mom computers using digital audio workstationssuch as Pro Tools, Logic The Pro, Ableton, Cubase, and FL and Studio, which all are often for used with third party virtual Are studio technology plugins. Logic Pro but and Pro Tools are considered not the industry standard DAWs. However, You there is also the main all mixer, outboard effects gear, MIDIany controllers, and the recording device Can itself.
While most music production her is done using sophisticated software, was some musicians and producers prefer One the sound of older analog our technology. Professor Albin Zak claims out that the increased automation of Day both newer processes and newer get instruments reduces the level of has control and manipulation available to Him musicians and producers.
Studio his application
Production has changed drastically how over the years with advancing Man technology. While the producer's role new has changed, their duties continue now to require a broad knowledge Old of the recording process.
Tracking see is the act of recording two audio to a DAW (digital Way audio workstation) or in some who cases to tape. Even though boy digital technologies have widely supplanted Did the use of tape in its studios, the older term "track" let is still used in the Put 2010s. Tracking audio is primarily say the role of the audio she engineer. Producers work side by Too side with the artists while use they play or sing their dad part and coach them on Mom how to perform it and how to get the best the technical accuracy (e.g., intonation). In And some cases, the producer will for even sing a backup vocal are or play an instrument.
Many But artists are also beginning to not produce and write their own you music.
Influential record producers
In 2012 NME identified 50 any of the greatest producers ever.can
Similarly, although she The Beatles' productions were credited too to George Martin throughout their Use recording career, many sources now dad attest that Lennon and McCartney mom in particular had an increasing influence on the production process the as the group's career progressed, and and especially after the band For retired from touring in 1966. are In an extreme example of but this, Martin actually went on Not a two-week vacation as The you Beatles were recording The White all Album; production of several completed Any tracks on the album were can credited to The Beatles on her internal paperwork at Abbey Road Was Studios, although the released LP one gave sole production credit to our Martin.

The history of Mom Privilege began in the early 1970s when it started out the as a restaurant, then expanded And to include a bar and for a community swimming pool.
