How to Load and Set Up the Plugin in Your DAW
The first step is to load and set up the plugin in your DAW of choice. Dyvision Works Dyscratch VSTi is a VST instrument plugin, so you will need a VST host that supports the VSTi format. For this example, we will use FL Studio, but you can use any other DAW that you prefer.
To load the plugin, go to the channel rack and click on the plus icon. Then select \"More plugins\" from the menu and find Dyvision Works Dyscratch VSTi from the list. Click on it to load it into a new channel.
Once the plugin is loaded, you will see its interface on the screen. It looks like this:
The interface consists of several sections:
The wave display shows the waveform of the loaded sample and the start-end points of the range for scratching.
The turntable animation shows the current scratch position and direction within the wave.
The load button lets you load any wave file (.wav 16 or 24 bit) into the plugin.
The start-end knobs let you adjust the start and end points of the range for scratching.
The gate knob lets you activate and adjust the gate function, which creates crossfader cuts and effects.
The clipper knob lets you activate and adjust the clipper function, which simulates overdriven vinyl levels.
The humanize knob lets you activate and adjust the humanize function, which simulates the human touch.
The pitch-bend wheel lets you scratch the sample by moving it up or down.
The keyboard lets you play scratches using different keys.
How to Select and Adjust the Sample Range for Scratching
The next step is to select and adjust the sample range for scratching. This is important because it determines which part of the sample you want to scratch and how long it will last.
To select a sample, click on the load button and browse your computer for a wave file that you want to use. You can use any wave file that you have, such as a vocal, a drum loop, a synth melody or anything else. For this example, we will use a vocal sample from a rap song.
Once you load a sample, it will appear in the wave display. You can zoom in or out by using your mouse wheel or by clicking on the magnifying glass icons at the bottom of the display. You can also drag the display left or right by clicking on it and moving your mouse.
