    Default Turntable help?

    Looking to get some turntables for scratching, I have the Hercules RMX, but those little tiny wheels are not cutting it, I need something that will work with the RMX as I am playing Mp3's off of my computer using Virtual DJ. If any of you know about some cheap TT's that will work for this please let me know.

    direct drive
    and it needs to be strong enough to start moving quickly/ not slow down a lot when you touch it.

    the technics 1200 is known for being very good.

    i think theres something from stanton that some say are better.

    but thats where my advise ends as thats all i know. sorry.

    It's good to learn on turntables that don't have as much torque as the PDx's/1200's, etc... It teaches you to have the soft touch.

    People don't realise that when you scratch you don't need to put a lot of force on the record - just the friction created by your finger tips should be enough to keep the record still while the platter continues to spin under it...

    That's why people learning to scatch on jog wheels use heavy, jerky movements that sound wack.

    Was looking at these, since i cant find the TTD 2400's in the US, http://www.topdjgear.com/gettdistarmt.html pretty cheap and in my budget...since I'm just a beginner I don't want anything too fancy.

    imo
    the ideal set up for me is traktor scratch pro, external mixer, and timecode 2 technics with virtual vynls
    not sure if timecoding is the right term for it. but i'm pretty sure lol

    Default 1200's

    If you have craigslist in your area and an app on your phone or pc that searches craigslist for you constantly and emails or text you instantly when something in your search criteria shows up for sale you can score some 2nd hand Technics for around $200 each or less. I have had my 1200's for 15+ years and they are still going strong they are still the best piece of gear I have ever bought add Traktor Scratch Pro & some Dicers its heaven!!!
    Save you money buy your turntables once if you decide to move you will get your money back no problem. Good Luck!!!
