This is a program I have made (with help from Sigma & the gang) mainly for scratching beginners (like me)
it is similar to the Asis combo generator idea but it uses real scratch samples
At its most basic it will generate a 1 bar combo using whichever scratches you tell it you can do then leave a bar for you to copy, kind of like qbert diy - then generate a new pattern and continue..
More advanced people can use it to q&a using whichever samples they like, or you can just let it come up with combo's to try and copy

It's far easier to use than explain (honest!)

There are 2 downloads, the 1st is the main program and the 2nd is the sample set (made by Sigma)
The program will do nothing without the samples but it is better to separate the downloads

Program
http://www.digitalvertigo.co.uk/dv/apps/co...en/ComboGen.zip

Samples
http://www.digitalvertigo.co.uk/dv/apps/co...maSampleSet.zip

Basically, just install both files to the recommended folder (if you install the program somewhere else then you'll also need to install the samples to that folder)
You guys that have been running the earlier versions will need to 'remove' then reinstall
Requires DirectX 8 or later

There will be a second set of samples early next week thanks to Dub Se7en

There are a couple of help files with it if you need help understanding the screen

With Sigma's sample set are 5 config files ranging from 'beginner' to 'expert', these are just to show how you can use and change the ini's to suit your needs
New sample sets can be added by anyone - i haven't done a help file to explain that side of it yet though
NOTE - the scratch samples have been named just as a guide and because they need names, the names may be wrong or you might disagree with them but they are not there to definitively say 'This is scratch xyz'
There's probably some other vital info that i forgot so if there are any q's then let me know
Also if there are any bugs etc then let me know and let me know what you think of it

Cheers - thanks Sig!

a chap on alienz just asked if it was possible to add extra beats the the prog, so in case anyone here is interested now or later i thought i'd post the answer here too...

it is easy to add your own beats
as long as it is 85 bpm (or you've stretched it to 85bpm) then you can put it in the 85bpm folder and edit the 'ini' file at the top and add extra lines
ie, if your beats were called newbeat.wav and newbeat2.wav
edit the ini(s) and add the lines
beat03=newbeat.wav
beat04=newbeat2.wav
etc

I've uploaded Dub's cuts at last (sorry!) and added the link into Sideshow's first post in this thread. Just unzip the file and run the installer and you're done.

Nice one Sig.
You should check out dub's set
They are definitely not for the beginner though
And like before, the naming could be wrong for dubs samples
Big thanks to Dub for helping too, cheers mate
If anyone else wants to make a set then let me know if i can help

The program has now been slightly updated. The link is the same as in the original post. All you need to do is download the main program, not the larger sample files. Unzip the file, run the installer and choose the "Repair" option.

cool, i've decided my cuts sound too agressive for the beat i've used, but with the beat you've included they're spot on....

Sometimes your cuts sound a little too artificial Dub. It's not you obviously - it's just what the program does with them.

yeah, probably my fault
i think it's maybe cos with sigmas he did the same scratch a few times and i tried each one to get the one that looped the best
your set sounds good though dub, without a doubt

i noticed they don't flow like yours. maybe there's too much techy stuff and not enough basics?

i think the basics help with flow
i think they sound good though dub - if you want to do some more samples though then i'm happy to do the chopping up again for you
i think the fact i could choose from several repeats with sigma's probably helped
