shows how long i've been out of it! if someone made that pad, that would be awesome. something to research, but also can be done for free with simple household shit.
i am only really good with my right hand on the crossfader. i never took the time to learn to scratch both ways, and always either did simple things with the left hand, or reversed my cross fader and reached over. i'd even like to put both decks on the left of the mixer if i could, and just reverse the fader to change decks.. i would definitely spend time scratching 'switch' because it will come back to haunt you. always planning for certain wax on one side of the decks only will be a lot to think about, and if it didn't matter, you could crush in any situation.
since i switched to playing dubplates, i've pretty much abandoned any sort of turntablism, as mixing with them doesn't leave much room for platter control - they don't track for shit, and are extremely touchy
