Scratching without records.


Developer website: Red Rock Software, Inc.

iScratch allows you to scratch without records - Some features:
  • Create scratches without a turntable, mixer, or vinyl records.
  • iScratch produces realistic scratch sounds based on standard scratch notation - it "plays" the scratch with the realism of a turntable system.
  • Anyone can add scratching to their music library.
Create and edit
  • Create basic scratches from the built-in tools: Push, Pull, Baby, Release, Chirp, Tear, Hold.
  • Add Fader control with the Click tool - several clicks can simulate a Crab.
  • Choose any sound to scratch (AIFF format). Change input sounds during the composition.
  • Control the duration of the input sound. The Waveform control shows exactly which portion of the input will be used to generate the scratch.
  • Control the pitch of the scratch. Edit the notation so that it plays over a shorter time but uses the same amount of input sample. This will produce a higher-pitched scratch.
  • Copy & paste notations to easily repeat parts of your scratch.
  • Drag notations to change their position.
  • Create a few seconds or hours of scratching. Time and Measure tracks show how long your composition is.
  • Play back the scratch composition or just the notation you are working on.
  • Play the input (source) sound.
  • Add a backbeat.
Save and share
  • Use the Document Info window to title your composition, set its copyright, or add notes.
  • When you save your iScratch™ file, all of the input samples used to create it are bundled into the file. Send it to a friend and they will see and hear exactly what you created.
  • Print your scratch composition like sheet music to use for performances.
Export and mix
  • Export your iScratch™ composition as an AIFF file. Put your composition on your Web site or import it into GarageBand, Soundtrack, Logic, or your favorite music application.
