DJ Woody, Scratch Polifónico

Scratch_Polifonico_www.lawebdeldj.com

Scratch polifónico de la mano de DJ Woody, algo que suena muy técnico y que realmente tiene su complejidad, se trata de hacer algo que podríamos hacer con los Remix Decks de Traktor Pro, pero utilizando un giradiscos como el Vestax Controller One, que nos permite cambiar el pitch de la música y cuatro fuentes de sonido en Serato DJ en modo DVS.

El proceso es realmente complejo, pero nos muestra una vez mas que, de forma manual, podemos hacer muchos de los procesos y rutinas propios de los programas para DJ, como ya pudimos ver en el curso de Scratching a cargo de DJ Angelo, mediante el uso de los giradiscos, podemos hacer desde Loops a efectos como en Eco o el Flanger…esta rutina a cargo de DJ Woody, nos vuelve a mostrar que el límite está en la imaginación de las personas.

DJ Woody presents 'Polyphonic Scratching'
One thing i've always been interested in developing is the melodic use of the turntable, this was advanced by the release of the Vestax PDX 2000 turntable in 2001 with it's increased pitch range and higher torque. I soon discovered that with the PDX it was possible rotate the tone arm a full 360 degrees so i started experimenting with using 2 tone arms on the platter of one turntable. This mainly interested me because it enabled be to control 2 sets of sounds via one turntable platter. In 2003 i was fortunate enough to get involved in the development of the Controller One turntable. This revolutionised what was possible in terms of musically accurate pitch manipulation. However one thing that somewhat frustrated me was the fact that the turntable was still essentially a monophonic instrument, controlling 1 sound or voice at a time. I recently figured out a way utilising Serato DJ and the Rane Sixty Four mixer to controller up to 4 independent sound sources or voices using one turntable allowing me to play and manipulate true chords and create independent melodies from 1 turntable platter (unlike the soon to be released STEMS format.) I've since been informed that this is similar to Traktors 'remix decks'. Not being a traktor user i was unaware however this Serato hack is massively exciting for me and opens up whole new creative door. I'm still learning and discovering the new skill set required for 'polyphonic scratching', needless to say this video is just a starting point. Woody

La clave esta en el plato Vestax Controller One, el cual nos permite alterar la nota musical del sonido que estamos reproduciendo, este giradiscos es casi un instrumento musical, por desgracia, como la mayoría ya sabréis, Vestax cerro hace un tiempo y sinceramente, no se sabe si volverá, pero cuanto mas tiempo pasa mas dudas hay sobre este tema…en la actualidad es difícil encontrar estos giradiscos y, si lo hacemos, es a unos precios desorbitados.
