Scratch DNA

Scratch DNA is a feature of the Scratch Pad Page that lets you automate your scratch sounds, and tinker with their "DNA". This allows you to create cool scratch routines and apply them easily to your tracks or samples.


The Scratch Pad page provides the ability to instantly trigger an automated, pre-defined scratch in a single step. Each Pad will trigger a different scratch variation that will play without disrupting the beat grid of the track, giving you the ability to experiment with different scratch sounds while keeping the music flowing.

Clicking on the Pad Menu button reveals 3 options:

  • DNA Editor... Opens the DNA Scratch Editor to create and edit scratch patterns

  • Over When checked allows the scratch to play over top of the track instead of cutting it

  • Quantized When checked keeps the scratch on time to the tracks position


The DNA Scratch Editor allows you to create, edit and customize automated scratch routines. It is accessible from the Pad Menu of the Scratch Pad Page. The layout to the editor is both unique and intuitive, allowing you to visualize your edits as you work.

For a complete explanation of the DNA Scratch Editor, please consult the User Manual.
