"Imagine being able to scratch like your heroes, to understand what they're doing, and to be able to do it yourself on YOUR gear. It's an amazing feeling - one we've helped 2,535 DJs to achieve and I want you to have this feeling too.

 "Read on to learn how The All-New Scratching For Controller DJs course can give it to you - including two TIME-LIMITED BONUS COURSES just for this launch!"

Steve Canueto, Digital DJ Tips Scratch Tutor
When we pioneered teaching scratching on controllers, way back in 2012, we quickly learned that there are two big problems, which even today STILL affect nearly every new scratch DJ when trying to learn.

The first is believing that your gear is holding you back. This false belief leads you to either spending more and more money on equipment (that you don't need), or worse, give up entirely.

The second is a CLASSIC fault - trying to master what both hands do simultaneously - which is exactly how most tutors teach scratching. But it doesn't work! Worse, if you've been doing it that way, you actually need to "unlearn" those habits BEFORE progressing.

The All-New Scratching For Controller DJs solves the above, and EVERY OTHER PROBLEM beginners face - it's the freshest, most complete, and most effective online scratch training that exists, anywhere.

Across its 182 video lessons, the All-New Scratching For Controller DJs course's PROVEN method takes ANY beginner from NOTHING to performing the most coveted and difficult scratches out there... to pro standard.
  • It'll show you how to scratch confidently and impressively, using any DJ controller and any software. It'll make DJing with your controller more fun and get you properly noticed!
  • You'll master all the skills using our three-step "Scratch, Cut, Combine" formula. By teaching the “scratch” hand first, and only then moving on to the “crossfader hand”, it all magically comes together. We invented and perfected this game-changing technique
  • You'll quickly be performing basic scratches such as the Baby Scratch and Cuts, as well as scratches that you previously may never have dreamt of doing like the Stab, Transformer and Chirp
  • We'll show you how to get scratch sounds of your own to personalise your scratching - although there are 300 scratch sounds included with the course too! 
  • You'll perfect the techniques of scratching over music, such as how to get your levels right, the golden rules on where and where not to scratch, and scratching with rhythmic samples and acapellas
  • We'll coach you in using loops, cues and effects, to move your scratching way past what vinyl DJs can achieve with their non-digital setups
  • You'll learn the secrets of incorporating scratching into your DJ sets whatever your style, music, or audience, ensuring that you always impress and amaze. 
  • Want to DJ on unfamiliar gear? No problem - you'll easily be able to transfer your new scratch skills to CDJs and vinyl, too
  • All the lessons are here for you to perfect advanced scratches such as the Flare, the Boomerang, the Crab - we’ll even show you beat juggling on DJ controllers
  • By the end of the course you'll also have learned timeless DJ skills including manual beatmixing, and counting beats, bars and rhythms, for confident DJing way past scratching!
  • Over 300 sounds and beats across three FREE soundpacks - all you need is here
  • 65 "Mini Workshop" lessons - to ensure you get the skills
  • 174 "follow-along" practice drills - video, audio, slow-motion, to help you perfect them
  • "Combos & Patterns Cookbook" - build your own routines! (14 full lessons)
  • Pro DJ routine "deconstructions", teaching you how to perform tricks by the big names such as Jazzy Jeff and DJ AM, plus scratch DJ interviews, inspirational scratch demos...

We have over 35,000 students in 168 countries. Here is some recent feedback from some of them...

"I can finally scratch to the standard I’m happy to use in my DJ performances...

"When I started this course I could do a bit of scratching, sometimes it sounded pretty cool, sometimes not so much. I knew most of the fundamental scratches, but I would end up just putting a lot of movements together, going really fast and hoping for the best. I had mainly been learning from YouTube videos, so had no real structure, and I picked up a lot of bad-habits.

"This course has taught me how to improve what I partly knew, by clearly explaining everything step by step, providing me feedback on my technique, and explaining where I was going wrong and fixing all my bad habits. I learnt how important the timing is, and how much this can make your scratches sound so much better! 

"The follow along practice drills are great, and I have learnt how to form structured scratch-combo patterns. It’s teaching me to become a confident scratch DJ!" - Chris Conlon, Marbella, Spain

“It's given me the confidence to scratch tastefully during my sets...

Scratching was kind of the last frontier on my DJing wish list and taking this course helped me reach that goal of being a well rounded DJ. It's given me the confidence to scratch tastefully during my sets and add that additional skill & flavour to my DJ tool kit. 

I loved the comprehensive step-by-step focus including beginner scratches (baby scratch, etc) all the way through advanced ones (flares, etc), and the one on one feedback from Steve sealed the deal. Having ongoing access to this has been crucial to building confidence and getting better.

I recommend this course because you'll be given all the tools you'll need to learn how to scratch properly and effectively. If you don't learn it, it won't be because of the course. ;)" - Simon "DJ Taiga" Tai - Los Angeles, USA

"The video lessons are so easy to follow, without having to have ANY prior knowledge of scratching...

I heard DJs scratch and beat juggle with no idea how they did it, I just knew it sounded awesome! I wanted to learn the skills so tried YouTube videos but I couldn't find videos that broke the skills down completely. You had to have some base skills already, or people were not willing to fully divulge their secrets on their techniques. I was frustrated - like anyone, I feel my time is valuable, so I want to get the most out of every minute of practice without wasting time.

I had taken a few classes from DDJT already, so I was familiar with how the classes worked, etc so I finally decided to take the plunge and sign up for the course!! 

The video lessons are so easy to follow, without having to have ANY prior knowledge of scratching. Each skill is broken down into tons of little videos to learn a little bit at a time, then build on it. The amount of topics and skills covered in this class blows me away, and additional content and skills keep getting uploaded.

One of the BEST parts of this course is the direct contact Steve (as well as all the other scratching members) where I can get next day feedback for any question I have. Steve is a tremendous teacher, and he has no ego, so you can ask anything, and he will not make you feel little or dumb for not knowing. 

I am so happy I finally enrolled in this class. I continually go there for inspiration and continued learning. Like any other DDJT class, it is there when I have time for it, which I love. I would easily pay DOUBLE for this course!" - Mevin Magrini, California, USA 

“This was something I wanted to learn for no other reason than I just wanted to...

I tried a few times to scratch bit it seemed too difficult to pick up - my attempts sounded like! This was something I wanted to learn for no other reason than I just wanted to, and as a DJ, only my creativity could limit me, so why not have more tools? 

I took the course because I wanted to know how much I didn't know about scratching, understand how much I had to learn, and how to go about it - with a structured formula. I knew from the quality of another course I took from DDJT that I didn't need to look anywhere else and once I got into it, it was exactly as I had expected. I started learning the breadth of what was out there, and started with what I needed to know and what it was all called (baby, etc.) so I could begin applying it even after the first few lessons.

I still wont call myself a scratch DJ, but I use a chirp and baby scratch well and in time so that it sounds right when I use it. I also make great use of the scratch sounds occasionally when I feel adventurous, and I don't sound as foolish as I used to.  

A person can accomplish anything when they "want" to... so this course shows you how to do it, and how to practice to get there, so anyone that really "wants" to can and will get there. This isn't a watch and absorb by osmosis course - you have to put the practice in.

I honestly didn't think I would get it as easy with my big clunky hands! So if I can learn it, anyone can, and I completely see how to get where the Redbull/DMC people are at, with more practice, but at least I see the path." - Michael Gerth - Chicago, USA

“Steve taught me how to scratch and I had it locked in a matter of weeks...

In a world so full of DJs, I've always looked for ways to be different, be more of a performer and take my skills to the next level. Since Steve taught me, I always try to incorporate scratching into my DJ sets; it's a skill that has helped contribute to my unique style, gaining me fans the world over for over 20 years." - Judge Jules, global DJ and producer, UK/Ibiza

“To my surprise this course greatly improved my scratching, teaching me where I was going wrong...

The videos and explanations are very clear and concise. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner, if you just got your first controller, or you come from vinyl/DVS and just need an excellent refresher, this course teaches the technique that’s transferrable to any gear. My scratching has improved hugely, no more 'slave' to the BPM... This is the one to take!" - Ricardo Thomas - New York, USA

"After a week or two of lessons the feeling was amazing...

I was learning really fast and enjoyed every challenge the course had to offer. First things first, I can now scratch! Learning to scratch brought a lot of feeling of 'control' over my music for me. Before this course I didn't really touch the 'turntables' of my controller at all but now I use them all the time and with confidence. It really brings a whole new element to my DJing." - Tuomas Helander, Helsinki, Finland

"I only wish I had this kind of tuition when I was starting out - it would have saved me years of agony!

...Steve's method is perfect for the beginner, breaking it down into easy to follow lessons. Being able to scratch has always given me an edge and has become an integral part of my sound no matter what style I play. Anyone who wants to add new skills to their DJing should definitely give this course a go." - Krafty Kuts, international DJ/producer

Just like with all of our DJ training courses, The All-New Scratching For Controller DJs Course comes with our cast-iron, no questions, 12 month money-back guarantee, which gives you more than enough time to get the results or get your money back - the risk is all ours. 

If at any time in your first year of ownership you decide it's not for you (for absolutely any reason), just tell us and we'll refund you with a smile. Nobody else offers a guarantee like this.
"I'm sure this has worked and will work for some people, but I've tried to learn to scratch so many times before - how can you be so sure it'll work for me?
As with our other courses, Scratching For Controller DJs has three crucial elements. Firstly, it is 100% practical: You'll be doing stuff right from the off, and by the end of the course, you WILL have all the skills you need to be able to scratch confidently, whatever gear you use.

Secondly, it is structured to take the pain out of learning - we worry about the learning, you just worry about doing what we say! Our methods are worlds apart from dry, flat, pointlessly complicated training of the type that never seems to get results. 

And thirdly - and most importantly - it is a FORMULA. This method has taken decades to perfect... It may surprise you. It may even go against everything you currently think about how scratching should be taught. But it works - and the end result will be that finally, you'll master this skill you've been dreaming of doing for years!
"I'm not sure I've got the time to do this: How much commitment do I need to make? What if I fall behind?"
You're busy - we get that. That's why the course is designed to give you everything you need to learn to scratch - but absolutely nothing you don't! So rest assured we won't be wasting a second of your time.

But also, the way it is taught is designed to work for anyone, no matter how much time you have, or when you have that time - now or later. The modules and lessons are all laid out in a logical order, and they are on-demand: In other words, you can pace yourself through the material at your own speed, taking as long as you want. Your tutors will always be there to help, for life.

Each lesson is clearly marked as either "essential" or "optional", giving you the freedom to move through the training as fast as you want, (provided you be sure to nail ALL of the essential lessons)!
"Will it work on my gear?"
One of the most insidious thoughts anyone learning to scratch can have is: "It's my gear that's the problem." (This never used to happen in the vinyl days, because everyone had the same gear!) It can stop you dead in your tracks, because once you're blaming your gear for your lack of progress, you either get better gear, or you give up.

The truth is you can scratch on ANY controller with jogwheels. They're all good enough. Fixed, motorised, big, small, mechanical, capacitive, expensive, cheap. We use ALL types of gear in the course. You'll likely see yours. So: YES, you can!

"Who specifically it for? I want to make sure it's a good fit for me..."
The course is designed for busy people who aren't sure where to start, who feel overwhelmed by the choices out there for learning to scratch, and who may have tried (possibly even several times) to learn before, but have not done as well as they'd hoped. 

So whether you're new to DJing or to scratching, or whether you've tried in the past to learn on vinyl but now want to learn on controllers, or whether you've tried and failed with other training methods, this is the formula you've been looking for.
Now... if you're still reading, it's because of one of two things: you don't think this course can deliver, or you don't think it'll work for YOU.

We've taken 2,535 students through this course who have been delighted with the results and the improvement in their scratching, you've heard from a few of them above.

And if you don't think it will work for you? TRY IT! You have a YEAR to make your mind up. Take advantage of this one-off offer price, lock in the additional bonuses - and THEN see how you feel.

Please don't let the fear of making the wrong decision stop you from making the right one!
