    i told you in the thread you started a couple of days ago. Using Serato or Tracktor Scratch Pro or another software.

    You purchase the software (which comes with timecode vinyls & cds).

    You purchase an external audio interface with 2 inputs and outputs for 2 decks mixing and more for 3+ deck mixing.

    Connect the decks to the mixer and then the mixer to the interface/

    Turn on the software (having installed it and set it up properly) and mix away.

    This is obviously oversimplified - check out thee links for more info:

    No where neare as satisfying as drawing for the tunes in your bag imo. I feel so much is missed as there are so many older tunes not relesed digitally. Vinyl til i die my friend!

    Unless he jumped with an oxygen mask, he probably was made into a blood and gore pancake that night. If he lived, which I doubt I'm sure he is living on a beach in Brazil. There have been several "what if" movies about Cooper.

    I'm afraid vinyl will die long before you die my friend!

    Setting up with Serato, a laptop, mixer and decks is an extremely expensive outlay. Weigh up the pros and ocns of it all first.
