Someone finally closed the analog/digital gap by modding a Technics 1200 into a powerful digital DJ player. Andrew Anatsky, the creator of the device, writes: “Handmade Digital Vinyl System (DVS), built-in [to a] vinyl turntable Technics SL-1200. [It is like] an analog Serato or Traktor Scratch, but is completely autonomous. The computer and the sound card is not necessary. To work [you only need] 2 turntables and mixer. Content is stored on micro SD cards in the players. It is possible to install two hot cues for each track with automatic saving on the SD card, installing realtime loops.” We hope this beautiful device goes into mass production soon.
