- The public generally doesn't understand it. From my understanding, to most people its just noise. I've heard many say its annoying, and they don't want to hear it.
- Pretty much only turntablists or anyone that's tried scratching understands and appreciates the difficulty of certain techniques.
- There's rarely any times when it sounds good in a mix.
- Unless you're at least sort of good at it, it usually sounds like shit
So besides learning basic techniques that can be useful in quick mixing (baby scratches, fades, etc.), the fact that its fun, or if you're going to the DMC, why bother? Could someone please help me rationalize the hours of time spent practicing??
Posted in General cause I wanna get non-turntablists feedback on this.
