Turntables are a dying breed… Man, that’s tough for us to say! But in the wake of digital music, shallow pockets and feature rich software, anybody can be a dj if they can navigate a pirate ship.

He has created blue prints to let you construct your own controllers on the cheap and in style, and they work with most popular software out there. Check it out!
We hope this a prank. We really do. Having spent some time in the world of application development, I know how easy it isn’t and how much time it takes to make an application.
