Some footage of my scratch box and Ableton Live. The "scratching" is all post Ableton using a buffer system and some interesting work arounds in Ableton. This is merely a proof of concept using off the shelf gear (not cheap though).
I hope to get this perfected and look forward to collaborating with fellow programmers and musicians to fix the few remaining problems on this idea. This is ready for live use and is NOT limited to Ableton (my particular vice).
This video is the culmination of over a year of work trying to get this type of control out of my head and into the airwaves. This is finally it!
The control is awesome and a ton of fun to play while retaining an instrument like feel and frightening simplicity. This type of post processing can be applied to nearly any incoming sound with stunning results. For example, the second sample cut, is a junky rendered sample constructed in Ableton using one note and a pitch envelope. When "cut" the sample takes on new life and expression. This stuff keeps getting funner! (One day possibly Ableton and Serrato will perform linke this...?)
