    Default Vinyl Timecode with Internal Pitch?

    So here's the thing: I have two turntables which aren't being used, stored somewhere in my basement.

    They are basic record playing turntables so they don't have PITCH, only 33/45 switch.

    My question is:

    If I buy the timecode vinyls, am I able to use them to control decks and pitch bending AND use the internal traktor Pitch sliders? Or this isn't possible at all?

    Ummm - I think the real question here is: whats the point ?

    The idea of timecode is that you control the music using turntables.

    Now if the turntables are your regular hi-fi stuff then they are simply not suitable of DJ'ing, and certainly not timecode due to a number of factors beyond just pitch control (cueing properly, torque, tonearms, cartridges etc..) Timecode can be picky at the best of times with audio levels sources in the first place.

    Yes and no. You can midi map the pitch faders to midi faders. Switch from abs/rel to internal using a midi command, adjust the pitch, switch back to abs/rel via midi command. Ive used this technique to gain an extra 16% pitch but using it simply to beat match would be ridonculous.
