Add wild scratch sounds to Ableton Live
Scratchy for Ableton is an Instrument Rack based on the standalone Scratchy instrument and is used to create scratch-like rhythmic sounds.
It’s made from white noise (generated by Operator) fed through a gate, low pass filter, LFO and various effects. The timing on the filter / LFO can be changed to create rhythmic variations which, when fed through the gate, create something akin to scratching.
