General | Latest Info

Keep in mind that with traditional turntables, you can pick up timecode Vinyl for whichever software you prefer to use.-Serato, Traktor, VirtualDJ, etc.-You can actually build a decent Vinyl timecode setup pretty affordably. You just need two turntables, mixer, and any DJ Audio interface that supports two turntable inputs. The biggest advantage with timecode setup is that learning to scratch becomes more possible.

Parts of a turntable

The tone arm and cartridge work in tandem. The tone arm holds the stylus and connects it to the record player housing. Some tone arms are straight, while others are curved or S-shape. Neither shape is inherently better. DJs generally prefer a straight tone arm, because it makes it easier to scratch, but many people claim that a curve tone arm gives you a better sound. Unless you are a DJ, youll probably want a curve one. Cartridge is responsible for translating grooves of record that stylus read into actual sounds you hear. Vibrations from stylus riding grooves travel through wires in tone arm until they reach the cartridge. In cartridge, vibrations hit coils inside magnetic field, which transform them into electrical signals. These signals are then sent on amplifiers and speakers.

Hybrid and controller turntables

So what happens when a humble turntable meets digital technology, specifically, software? We all know about DVS, which can turn a standard analogue turntable into a controller for digital music, but there are units that blur boundaries even more. Consider Reloop RP-8000Mk2 hybrid turntable, which is a standard DJ record player, but also a Serato DJ pad controller-you can even select the next track via library encoder from your deck! It kind of turns a humble turntable into a hybrid, kind of half human, half robot. Then there is Rane Twelve, which ditches any semblance of being genuine turntable, and is instead 100 % Serato controller-it simply has USB to plug into your laptop. But platter, slipmat, strobe light, motor, and so on mean that in use, it looks and feels just like using a turntable-its just that there is no tonearm, and vinyl is dummy, just for feel; you skip through your tracks using a touchstrip. Both of these units blur and shatter boundaries of what a turntable or turntable-like device can do, and if you're Serato DJ Pro user looking to add some turntable goodness to your DJ set-up, they're well worth look. See RP-8000Mk2 on Amazon for US 699, and Rane Twelve on Amazon for US 699.

Finally

Stantons Final Scratch was the first DJ-orient software, helping to transform the DJ industry entirely. Even with the advance of CDJ technology, many DJs still insist on using Vinyl for its larger, motorized Scratch surface. There was a lack of options for serious Scratch DJs AT this time, as the DJ industry was still exclusively hardware-base, with CDJs and Vinyls serving as only ways to play. Final Scratch essentially serves as the first computer playback method of music for DJs. It uses technology called DVS, or Digital Vinyl System, to control the playback of computer-base tracks using turntables. Final Scratch read special records call timecodes that were pressed with a modulated signal. This signal was feed into the PC via the Audio interface and parsed by software, which plays tracks that essentially follow turntables. When the DJ stops record, digital tracks stop. When DJ Scratch record, software Scratch track. This technology was adopted by all but most old-school DJs, bringing superior control of Vinyl back into play. Final Scratch was eventually bought by Native Instruments and transformed into new software named Traktor Scratch in 2003. This software could either be controlled by Vinyl or MIDI, which was a huge innovation for budget DJs. Early controllerists, including DJTTs own Ean Golden, began using MIDI keyboards to control software instead of turntables or CDJs, As MIDI controllers were substantially cheaper than either orthodox option. The introduction of Final Scratch finally brings DJing to personal computers, giving better library management and storage options than flash sticks and relatively primitive browsing systems of early CDJs. This development would pave the way for DJ controllers to eventually become the most popular way for bedroom and mobile DJs, as well as spawning an entirely new genre of live performance known as controllerism.
