Can I scratch on any turntable?
Technically speaking, you can scratch on virtually any DJ turntable with a needle, but many of these turntables are not going to produce the kind of sound you are going to want if you are serious about becoming a DJ.
How does record scratching work?
Vinyl recordings Most scratches are produced by rotating a vinyl record on a direct drive turntable rapidly back and forth with the hand with the stylus (“needle”) in the record’s groove. This produces the distinctive sound that has come to be one of the most recognizable features of hip hop music.
How do DJS scratch records without damaging them?
Records perform best when they’re left to rotate and play on their own. However, you can avoid damage to the underside of the record by using a special mat. That will help protect it from the turntable itself, though the top of the record will still be subject to damage.
How long does it take to learn DJ Scratch?

Can you DJ with just a turntable?
You can technically use any turntable. However, professional DJs tend to use high-end turntables with direct drive motors and quality components. A direct-drive motor is considered an essential feature for DJs.
Do I need two turntables to scratch?
1 turntable is fine for scratching unless you plan on doing scratching, blending and other stuff that requires 2 tt’s.
Do you need a special turntable to scratch?
You can technically “scratch” with a single turntable, but it won’t be making music. As long as you’ve got a direct-drive model, it should be fine for scratching.
How many types of scratching techniques are there?
The following diagram shows 8 different scratch patterns that can be acheived by moving the record once forward, one backward and cutting the sound on and off with a crossfader. The sound sample used to create the scratch also has a profound effect on the outcome of the sound.
Who invented scratching DJ?
It was a protégé of Grandmaster Flash, the Grand Wizard Theodore, who created ‘scratching’ – the sound made when the record is rubbed back and forth. He discovered the technique by accident as he stopped the record with his hand to hear what his mother was shouting out to him.
Do scratches ruin vinyl?
They’re all bad for your record, and they’re bad for your stylus. Scratched records do this too, but dirt is much worse. And as the needle gets more and more damaged, it just begets more problems. Dust-worn needles fight back, damaging the grooves in your vinyl records with their jagged edges.
Is it okay to touch records?
Never touch the record’s playing surface with your bare hands or fingers as your body oil will transfer onto the record attracting even more dust thereby affecting sound quality. If you accidentally touch a record, it is best to immediately clean it with a liquid record cleaner before putting it back in its sleeve.
Why do DJs use vinyl?
Vinyl is fuller, rounder, and has deeper bass. There is no warmth from an MP3. The slightest bit of clipping created by the DJ will cause harsh distortion coming from a digital medium; vinyl is much more forgiving.
