Playing on expert, there are some higher intensity songs that have very rapid successive scratches in one direction.

It is obviously possible to let go of the button, move it back in the other direction, and scratch again. But it is very difficult to do multiple scratches in one direction at very high speeds.

Does anyone have a particular good technique for this, or is it just about building up your speed through practice?

it depends on the mix. If I can see the unidirectionals coming up I'll pull back on the platter before they come up and then push forward. On one of the Jay-Z mixes they had like 18 unidirectionals in a row and I used 2 hands one to tap the green and the other to assist in spinning the platter a full 360

A lot of it is gonna come from subconsiousness, I am finding myself more and more doing things without thinking about it at all like the some parts that have you so 4 or 5 forwards on the blue and press a red with each one, or have you go back and forth I balance the platter with my thumb and kinda hope ot hit them while it's moving

At first, this was one of the main struggles with the game for me. After playing the same mix a few times I know when the tough spots coming, and prepare for it. I've found it works well to tap the button down with a very slight forward movement and release, don't pull the platter back, but just continue to very slightly move it forward each time... I've been able to get about 10 same directional scratches out doing this.

So I guess that would be my tip. Get to know the songs, and prepare for the scratches.


Too bad there isn't a practice mode <_<

Yeah, i'm more in the "press button move forward, let go of button pull back, repeat" for unidirectionals, but i seem to break combo pretty frequently doing this, as it seems the game still registers the button as being held down a bit after i've let go, = combo break on pulling back.

i do that too , i think the tap-smallfastfoward-realease is the best solution

but yesterday i hitted a section i though i wasn t able to hit at all (>>>>>>>)
i used the same technique but the platter was at the same place after the section . i don t know if i was lucky but it was easy
i used like tap+pushfoward - release+pullback
i m pretty sure you can pull back a little betwen each > or there is somthing with tolerance. the increment of the platter sensor is like 2mm on green button position
