Turntable mouse interface

Despite digital mixing, some guys just love their old turntables. TerminatorX has one concept: allow users to scratch music like it’s on vinyl. Some guys hate using their mouse for it, so they’ve been connecting mice to their turntables. Some use belt drives, other use optical sensors up top. Thanks to [Dylan] for the tip.

  1. As a scratch DJ of almost eight years now, I naturally headed straight for the audio page.

    I feel very harsh in saying this, but pretty much every audio file posted there was pure garbage. Perhaps it’s a question of talent. Perhaps it’s a question of talent, but looking through the articles I really don’t think any of the controllers designed are really up to the job of real ‘scratching’.

    Belive me when I say that I’ve thought long and hard about tactile control interfaces for scratching, but in all honesty there is nothing that can compare to time coded vinyl right now; especially when it’s so cheap and there are plenty of shareware apps to use it with.

  2. Using the touchpad on a laptop with this or Analogx works OK..

    You could also use a DM2 Mixman using the DM2 Midi drivers and a program like Mixvibes or Something similar.
