hip hop transfer play

sans garantie, juste une piste à creuser

deux termes : "Transforming" et "back to back":

"Transforming - First invented by legend ‘Cash Money’ this scratch requires you to tap the cross-fader quickly and in time and moving the sample slowly back and forth, the cuts of the cross-fader determine how the scratch sounds. The secret here is rhythmic tapping the cross-fader in and out and moving the sample from the beginning to the end and back again with varying degrees of speed to get the different sounds. The best way to do this is to let the sample play then tap the cross-fader four times as you drag the sample back. Repeat this with a beat on and listen to the difference in sound as you drag it back quicker - improvise.

Back to Back - This is not a scratch but the method by which scratch DJ’s repeat a certain section (the break) of a record utilising two copies of the same tune. First of all you need that all important ‘marker’ sticker so you know where to bring the samples back to. Find the beginning of the beat - put a sticker at 12 O’clock, then do the same on the other copy of the record. Let one go with the cross-fader on that side (right?) then set the other side off after one bar and transfer the cross-fader across whilst pulling back the first side. This is a very confusing technique and is best done by watching someone else or DMC videos and observing first hand - then try it at home."

On retrouve le "transforming" en français:

" Les faders de studio robustes conçus par Panasonic, le Crossfader ultra fiable et de première qualité et la fonction "Punch Transforming" vous permettent un mixage encore plus créatif. Plusieurs touches PFL (Pre-Fader-Listen) vous permettent d’écouter et de contrôler les pistes. Avec cette large palette de fonctions extraordinaires, la DX500 est un outil absolument indispensable pour tous les DJ’s. "

Is this where the DJ switches repeatedly from one CD/disk to another when both are playing simultaneously? This causing extra wear on equipment.
Just a guess.
