TTM, or Turntablist Transcription Methodology, is a notation system for scratching and turntablism designed by John Carluccio (a Brooklyn-based artist best known for the Battlesounds documentary film on turntablism), by Ethan Imboden, and by Raymond Pirtle. It is intended to be an intuitive graphical representation of the movement of a record whilst performing with a turntable, and was originally documented in a booklet form for distribution.
TTM is an official policy on this wiki; notated scratches and other turntablist tricks are notated in this manner. You can find all the TTM files in the TTM files category, but here are some quick links:
|H||EQ High / Treble|
|B||EQ Bass / Lows|
|Repeat marks at start/end of section. Number above first mark tells the number of times to repeat|
|Used above repeat marks; means repeat forever|
|Used to denote a patten to be repeated, especially in beat juggling|
|Crescendo (volume levels written at either end)|
|Decrescendo / Diminuendo (volume levels written at either end)|
|Click (fader close)|
|Open fader symbol|
|Start the turntable|
|Stop the turntable|
|Do the 'power down' effect; a brakeless stop|
