    The record plays a "beep." The computer listens to the beep and translates that information to understand where the needle is, which direction the record is spinning and how fast. So the computer is listening to an audio signal and interpreting that as information. The information is then used to manipulate the sound file on your computer.

    if you spin faster then yeah, but this would tell traktor to play faster...

    just accept that the beeps are linked and tell traktor what to do

    The timecode disc has like a modem signal on it which is then translated into track position of your digital track via the software so the digital track plays as if it were on the timecode disc.
    As the track is on the computer you can do all kinds of tricks with it, other than a straight 1:1 playback.

    Ah cool, you're from Cairns. Been there, ended up in some pub with girls dancing on the bar, it was awesome.

    The DVS tone sounds to the human ear like a constant high pitched beeeeeep noise, but it's something to do with parallel waves being offset. I don't fully understand the technicalities, but Traktor does, so it's fine!
