This is the follow-up release to the first ‘Soundcraftsman’ scratch tool which debuted back in 2004. At the end of the day, the sounds and quality are what truly matter. Nick has invested a tremendous amount of time, research and painstaking preparation to create and curate the best sounds so that you will actually want to use this record over and over again. Sure this record includes ahh and fresh, but it includes so much more…
Both versions of this record are JAM packed with everything from eerie synths chords to skipless vocal phrases that you’ve never heard before. There are guitar leads, flute, violin, bass, drums, effects, horns, keys and many more sounds in a variety of styles, tones and keys. The idea was to create a record that scratch musicians, turntablists and producers would like in equal parts. There are plenty of skipless drums and scratches that are intuitively laid out so that there will be nothing between you and creativity.
The A Side is designed for use on a normal Technics turntable (or anything with a +/-8 pitch range) while the B Side is designed for turntables that have ultra pitch control such as the Vestax PDX, Numark TTX, Pioneer PLX, etc… The idea is that when you pitch down the platter will move very slow, giving you more control, while the samples sound normal.
The record itself is a unique color in color design (clear with black inside). There’s a limited quantity of these bad boys, supplies won’t last!
