In other words, having Program 1 appear where Program 2 was and vice versa. With your fader reversed this way, scratching is done outward—away from the zero level point—with your thumb instead of your index and middle finger.It wasn’t long before this way of scratching evolved to a point where the DJs wanted to Hamster on the fly, without needing to open the mixer and select one way or the other. In 1998 Rane obliged the growing request with the TTM 54i Performance Mixer and moved the switch, dubbed the Hamster switch, to an external control for the crossfader and, uniquely at the time, with the channel faders as well.
