    is there any vinyl emulators that dont require additional hardware? just time coded vinyl and a soundcard into a laptop? ive been trying to find a way of playing my mp3s but so far ive not found traktor/ableton style programs to my liking ... i cant afford serato/tractor scratch but have been looking at things like virtual dj (stuff i can download basically) Has anybody else used this? am i right in thinking this doesnt need additional hardware?- apart from the vinyl... any help is much appreciated!

    yep, and youre always gonna need some extra gear. you could buy the serato rane tt57l mixer (or whatever its called) but of course, theres the expenses, and whatnot like you mentioned earlier.

    you could go for ultramixer (there is a free version with less features) oder check out virtual dj.

    these are booth tools where you can mix mp3s, you got everything on your pc monitor and can controll it with your mouse, but i recommend a midi controler such as one from hercules.

    You can get this up and running with Mixxx if you follow the guide on their site, uses xwax i think which works with pretty much any commercial timecoded disc, seen it with the serato ones and it is ridiculously fast, also works on linux.
