There are two turntable states that you can scratch a file in:
Cue state: Scratch movements can be applied to a loaded record in this stationary state.
Playing state: Scratch movements can be applied while the record is playing.
How to scratch a file
Select a file that you want to scratch on a turntable.
Hover over the virtual record with the mouse.
Click on the virtual record and move forwards and backwards (in a circular motion), at any speed, to hear exactly what you would hear if you applied those same movements to real vinyl.
Use the left mouse button for normal scratching.
Use the right mouse button for catch-up scratching. Click here for details.
Tip: The closer you click to the center of the record, the greater the amount of momentum applied.
You are able to apply added effects to a scratch, such as muting and momentum release variations. For more information see:
