AbstractDJ systems today are over engineered to the point that the record, the stylus, and even the turntable itself have been left out of the design. The problem then becomes that in removing these components from DJing equipment, DJs can no longer execute the techniques that make them turntablists. To solve this, I have fitted the components of a tablet computer and embedded it inside a time coded vinyl record allowing DJs to both source and control audio files on their existing turntable decks. It runs open source Digital Vinyl System (DVS) software from within the time coded vinyl record, providing the same look and feel of performing with vinyl records.
In reading further about my solution to this problem, you will understand the motivation that went into my technological solution for turntablists as well as the granular detail behind its design.
