    I'm taking my first commercial release to market now and I'm running a kickstarter with instrument pre sales to get my company of the ground.

    I am fully licensed by NI to release instruments under the Reaktor Player platform and this instrument will be a Powered by Reaktor release.

    Kickstarter...

    www.kickstarter.com/projects/unitedaudioartists/scratch-master-pro

    Introduction and overview videos.



    Please let me know if you have any questions about this instrument.

    Thanks to everyone here for all their help over the years.

    Michael.

    EDIT: I don't know why but the kickstarter info won't show up, If you google search Scratch Master Pro kickstarter you will find the relevant pages.

    !Updated on 08/16/2018 to add a new Video.!

    sounds pretty good but that GUI is ugly and hard on the eyes. Sorry Michael but I want your plugin to succeed and it has to have visual appeal. Something to think about. Besides that I like it

    I understand the GUI isn't for everyone, I would be more than happy to change it to something nicer looking, but I'm not that good at graphics, If I can find a graphic GUI designer at a reasonable price I'd consider giving it a different look.

    It would be dope if we could use the mod strip on mk3 to scratch samples.

    It has a Scratch Mode FX... Very basic, not as advanced as this though.

    We can but only in MIDI mode, in normal dedicated Mode the Strip is not mappable, unfortunately.

    so when maschine is controlling maschine itself the touchstrip cannot be manually re assigned, Maschine has to be in full midi mode for the touchstrip to be assignable?

    that seems kinda limited of the maschine developers part to me.

    Well... yeah. The Touch-Strip has 4 modes, when no mode is select it just sits there being useless...

    PITCH (Pitchbend)
    MOD (Modwheel)
    PERFORM (Controls Maschine built-in PerformFX plugin exclusively)
    NOTES (Arps/strums between the pressed down notes, pads, chords)
    [​IMG]

    If your plugin has a way to control the scratch using the pitch/mod wheel then it would be possible.

    You can use any midi CC to Scratch with it so mod wheel mode will work just fine.

    Thanks for the info bro.

    I gotta say this is probably one of the most original and exciting VST effects to be invented. Software seems so stale lately.
