Student asked about DJ SCRATCH RECORDS - Our SCRATCH teacher — DJ PONE — answered”
"Try Googling "free scratch sound mp3". I haven’t tried many of the sites that come up, so I am not sure how many are legit. Of few I looked at, Looperman looks decent.
But basically you can scratch with any sound! You aren’t limited to what is intended for scratching. Most of the classic scratch sounds weren’t originally intended for scratching anyway.
The best sounds are either loud and punchy, or drawn out. In sound engineer talk, that is sounds with strong attack, and sounds with lots of sustain.
Try classic hip hop or soul songs For example, Public Enemy (rappers chuck d and flavor flav are sampled a lot) and James Brown (his voice and a lot of the horns are sampled).
