DJ Skills Course with Serato Scratch Live: available now

Published Sep 22, 2011

Point Blank Online is now offering you the chance to get to grips with a staple of modern DJing: Serato Scratch Live.

Serato Scratch Live is an ideal platform for DJs who want to retain the feel and style of mixing with vinyl but don’t want to carry a big box of records or CD sleeve to every gig.  Compatible with a range of three bespoke Rane USB interfaces, Scratch Live brings vinyl and CDs into the 21st century, allowing full mix control of digital audio files via a conventional turntable or CDJ.

Featured in this new course is DJ Blakey.  The more discerning mix fans will already know that he is a DMC world champion and has hosted his own show on Radio 1 sister station 1Xtra.  Other achievements you might not be aware of are his residency at Fabric in London and his 2007 tour with Jurassic 5.  It’s fair to say that Blakey knows his stuff and that if you want to learn how to mix, particularly with software like Serato Scratch Live, you could not ask for a better tutor.

During the course you will learn how to utilize Scratch Live to its highest potential at every stage of the mix, from loading tracks, beat-matching and adding effects to multi-deck mixing, looping and scratching. The course also details how to use various controllers such as the Novation Dicer in conjunction with Scratch Live and the mixer of choice is the Rane TTM 57 SL.

If you want to play regular gigs as a DJ or already do, then you will undoubtedly benefit from using Scratch Live.  Where better to learn these skills than with industry professional tutors at Point Blank Online?

Point Blank’s DJ skills with Serato Scratch Live is 4 weeks in duration and costs £355 (approximately US $530).  The course is available to book now.
