what VSTi's do you use for "virtual" scratching?

I'm interested in something I can load my own tracks/samples into, that would allow me to "virtually" scratch using some kind of midi control—I was thinking an X/Y pad might be ideal. I've never really looked into this, but I'm working on a track that I'd like to try this effect with, during a transition. Let me know what you've tried/used/like/don't like, etc. !

I'm surprised this still hasn't been implemented in modern DAW samplers, TBH.
Afaik Bitwig can do it. I'd love to be able to draw in some playhead direction/playspeed automation nerdery.

I use hardware: Korg Kaoss Pad 2 - sample and scratch. RCA inputs and outputs.

EDIT: going to hook this up to MIDI...see what happens.

Anyone have recommendations?
