Made for anyone who wants a free (public domain) sound library for scratching with any digital scratching capable device (digital vinyl system, DJ controller, etc.) It starts with five classic sounds for scratching. The rest is mainly freesound.org CC0 sounds, but there are other sources that I will mention in this description.
Compiled, edited and mastered by myself. For re-distribution, source mention (link, "Bronxio, author of the Youtube channel Aprende Scratching" or just "Bronxio") is optional and appreciated :)
Made mainly for a Youtube Channel (Aprende Scratching) that I opened to teach Scratching (mainly in Spanish, with English subtitles sometimes): youtube.com/AprendeScratching
Here is the index (with own names), with the sources indicated:
SCRATCHING CLASSICS ------------------- 00:01 Aaah - sample from the end of B Side - Change The Beat (Female Version) 00:02 Fresh - sample from the end of B Side - Change The Beat (Female Version) 00:03 Ah yeah - sample from the beginning of Run DMC - Here We Go (Live at the Funhouse) 00:04 As we go a little somethin' Like This, hit it - sample from the beginning of Dough E. Fresh & Slick Rick (formerly MC Ricky D) - La Di Da Di 00:07 Check this out - sample from the beginning of Run DMC - Here We Go (Live at the Funhouse)
Drumming = kick and snare (for drumming scratch) Original = my own voice, released for the first time in this file
Optimized for 100 BPM beats. I made some modifications in my edit, like a little bit of stretching or shorten some parts to optimize sounds for rhythm (and of course filtering, wave compressing, slicing, etc.)
Please note that melodic sounds work with drums alone, and could fit great with melodic companion; but if mixed without harmony, could be horrible!
LEGAL NOTICE AND GOOD WILL MANIFEST
I wanted to make a public domain sound library for scratching made from suitable material for this condition. However, as you can understand, I can't confirm the real origin of all of this stuff. I just thought that the actual status of every sound here makes sense. If any copyright holder who detects, can prove holding and wants me to stop distributing his/her/their sound/s, please contact me through private message and I'll remove this version and create another one without it or them.
There is a special case for the first section (scratching classics): all of these sounds are de facto public domain, due to large re-utilisation without permission since their origins in the 80's until today. It is understood that copyright holders accepted this. It's the same case as, for example, the amen break, that is already uploaded here in freesound.org more than 300 versions of it.
Here you can check some examples of re-using without credit even nowadays (it is understood that without any copyright holder permission then). I'll add the whosampled.com detections as well, just to have an idea of their expansion.
Aaah / fresh ************
Original AAAH & FRESH from Beside - Change The Beat (Female/Frech Version) / Celluloid, 1982 [appears at 3:38]
Theme sampled in 2272 songs according to whosampled.com (January 7th 2018)
Doug E. Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew - The Show (Reality, 1985, 0:15 and throughout) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDkqz5C62SM <-- This is the other side of the record where the "as we go a little somethin' like this, hi it" song is)
Not to mention about the "aaah" and "fresh" samples, that they may be actually real public domain samples. In USA, A clear authorship is needed to be something eligible for copyright. The record company said that these words were spoken by Fab Five Freddy, but Bernard Zekri (the female rapper's B-Side husband, who was present in the recording according to the source ) stated that it was Roger Trilling who said that.
To all those users that expressly shared their creations for the public domain, Celluloid Records and other copyright holders to let the "aaah" and "fresh" flow through more and more human creations freely, and other creators and copyright holders that did the same with other samples: thank you very much! :)
