Here’s a great gallery of mouse-turned-turnables! Alex writes –

While scratching with the mouse usually sounds the way terminatorX users want it to (at least if the feedback I get is representative) it doesn’t really feel like scratching. The only way to get that traditional haptic feedback is to turn your turntable into a mouse device.

Optical input devices are known to produce best results in such a scenario. For those interested here’s a document on how I turned my old turntable into a terminatorX device.

Luckily a lot of terminatorX users have built their own turntables…
