Basic Midi Learning

Like all our plugins, you can map incoming midi messages to any of the sliders or buttons. To do this, simply right click the button or slider, and then activate the midi learn. Once activated, the object will learn the next midi message that it receives, and use that in the future to trigger/move.

If the plugin is not properly learning incoming midi, then you need to check and make sure the midi is properly routed to the plugin.

In ableton for instance, you need to create a midi track, select the inputs you want to use, and then send the output to the track with the Scratch Track plugin on it. You also need to turn on monitoring by selecting “in” on the ableton midi track.

Midi Platters

You can also use most MIDI turntable devices for scratching. Not all platters are supported, but since most midi platters work in the same way (sending two midi signals: one for touch and one for movement), we can easily use them for turntable control.

By Mapping the two platter midi messages to the “touch” and “scratching” parameters on the midi control panel, you can easily control the scratching. Additionally, we have added sensitivity and friction parameters to allow users to personalize the feel and responsiveness of their individual setup.
