Unidentified Sound Object has released Back and Forth, described as a new Scratch and Turntable Sound Effects Kit. This is what they have to say about it...
Back and Forth was born of an idea with my pal Lorenzo di Tria (aka Dj Mate), thinking on how to build an intuitive and great sounding music tool for contemporary producers and sound designers. Based on Lorenzo's experience on the art of turntablism, this library is now an easy way to add real scratch and turntable performances to your musical and audiovisual projects, and finally make them sounds better then ever before. The unsurpassed sound of the needle in the groove and the cuts of the crossfader generate an unmistakable music quality and uniqueness.
Back and Forth differs from any other scratch library on the galaxy for its 400 samples recorded entirely in the studio only with real vinyls, plus a unique Ableton Live Instrument (.amxd): the Scratch Machine. It's a magical sample-based scratch improvisator that combines many different scratch combos with criteria. With the ability to choose six different classic samples (THA, FRESH, TWAI, AYE, YE, YO), the Scratch Machine adds a timeless and authentic turntablist to any type of production, from the most old school Breakbeat, to the freshest Trap Vibe. Now you can easily add some real-sounding scratch sfx to your musical productions with a Max for Live device that simulates a realistic freestyle by a DJ.
But wait, there's more: THE QnA LOOPER – VOL.1 is included in the package and it's free! It's a new way of thinking the scratch looper. Now you can easily improve your dj skills using just this Max/MSP standalone application (for Mac and PC) and practice on 18 different beats with an automated scratch engine! With 900 sample-based answers, the QnA Looper makes easier and smarter your training sessions.
