Can I scratch in Ableton?

I was just wondering if there is a way to scratch or create your own scratching sounds in Ableton?

    SO I started a thread in the forum about this but I'll explain quick.  You can use deckadance (imagin line vst) to scratch within ableton.  You can use traktor (via smartmixing check out djtechtools.com for explanation) , you can use something called ms pinky (which is a max patch I've never used it).

    You can also used many vst's free and paid to make scratch sounds as well as you can do some creative stuff to emulate scratching.  Reaktor has some great stuff to twist up audio but your probably be happier with something like traktor, etc

    I've got serato as well and enjoy the bridge combo but you CAN NOT scratch incoming ableton audio (major fail), but if you already have serato than it's well worth checking out.

    Hope this helps cause I saw the last answer and thought it could use some additional information.  Be sure to research and ask lots of folks to get what you need if your on a tight budget.

    Best of luck

    I've used ms pinky. Pretty good and the most affordable from what I've seen can be a bit of a pain to get the max4live plugin working but it does comes with a vst as well. I've also used traktor with audio routed into a track from live.  But I'd say ms pinky is probably what you are looking for since you can scratch clips with the m4l addon. No matter what you'll more than likely want to record your scratches to a new track/clip.

    It's possible to somewhat emulate the tone as DubSpot above proved!

    While it's not scratching per se, i reckon it's a somewhat similar effect. Use a repitching delay, set it to repitch mode (right click it), link the channels and crank the dry/wet to max. Bind the modwheel of a controller to the time parameter and get ready to rock!

    There are several plugins for doing this on the stagecraft Software website:

    Directly in Ableton, not that I'm aware of. But if you combine Ableton and Serato using Bridge this is no problem.
