ION LP 2 FLASH transfers vinyl to SD or USB drives direct

ION LP 2 FLASH transfers vinyl to SD or USB drives direct

Turntables with USB connections are nothing new - we've covered quite a few before - but this is the first I've seen that can not only record into your PC but directly onto a PMP or even an SD memory card.  Made by ION, one of the first names in USB turntables, the LP 2 FLASH can be connected to an external hard-drive or flash memory stick via the USB port, and also has a built-in SD slot; tracks can then be recorded straight onto that removable storage.

 

Numark MixMeister, OMNI CONTROL & NS7 USB DJ control surfaces

Numark MixMeister, OMNI CONTROL & NS7 USB DJ control surfaces

If you're more reliant on your computer for your digital music than Numark's standalone DJ products would allow, the company has three new control surfaces to offer.  The MixMeister, OMNI CONTROL and NS7 all offer varying degrees of hands-on tweaking for use in both studio and live situations.  The MixMeister Control is a USB-powered surface that comes with MixMeister's Fusion software; all 94 knobs and buttons correspond exactly with those on-screen, with Fusion handling the technical side of beat-matching, setting cue points and re-pitching.  Power and connectivity is handled by a single USB cable.

Crosley Keepsake Turntable

Crosley Keepsake Turntable

It’s a portable record player from about 50 years ago, maybe more, but its being manufactured today. It will play your records, and it has 3 speeds, so it will play all sorts of vinyl.

The best part comes in its more discreet feature of being able to hook it up to your PC via USB and use the included software suite to rip your records to a digital format. Then you can put it on CD or add it to your favorite digital media player.

Crosley Songwriter CD Burner – An LP/CD Burner

Even though I did have a CD player when I was younger, I also had some records and a Michael Jackson Thriller record player. I loved those records and I know many people still enjoy theirs. It’s time, however, to bring that old record collection up-to-date.

Retro Record Player burns your LPs

Retro Record Player burns your LPs

Trust Hammacher Schlemmer to take that USB turntable for converting your vinyl to mp3s (which has been doing the rounds recently, despite SlashGear covering it last August) and knock it into a cocked hat.  "You don't need a PC" they cry, luxury voices dripping with derision, "all you need is our retro-styled LP-to-CD Recorder."  And I suppose, in the correct (read:hideous) surroundings it would blend in.  Capable of playing 33s, 45s and 78s, you can easily burn an entire record to CD or - making judicious use of the pause-record feature - make compilations from multiple vinyl (or just put both sides onto one disc).

With an AM/FM radio for those times you can't be bothered playing DJ - oh, and with a remote control - now the PC-phobic can enjoy their old records in the car too.  It's a wonderfully egalitarian society we live in, isn't it, although in this case equality costs $399.95.

Algoriddim DJAY Pro updated with Spotify integration

This week the folks at Algoriddim have updated their DJAY Pro app for Mac to include Spotify integration. This is the first time a professional DJ application has included such a connection, this giving laptop DJs instant access to well over 20 million tunes. This system continues to work with iTunes as well, allowing Mac computers to preview, search, queue, seek history, and work with the system's own light/dark switch. The system you're looking at is DJAY Pro, working with turntables, waveforms, a sampler, and four decks.
