This has to be the coolest modifications to a Technics 1200 turntable we have ever seen. Someone has developed a way to not only play vinyl, but also digital files without it being hooked up to a computer.
What we have here is a standalone DJ tool, basically a CDJ, but as a Technics 1200. The creator is a man named Андрей Анацко (Andrew Anatsky) who has modified the turntable, which is seemingly the only one of it's kind.
In the original video description, Andrew Anatsky* 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 a 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.”
Check out some photos of the project below and if you would like to build one yourself, check out the full documentation process here along with a wiring diagram here, but you will have to translate it from Russian.
