Scratch without the skips.
A new device called Phase allows you to DJ without using a needle, reports The Verge.
Debuted at this year’s NAMM festival, Phase features two rectangular, battery-powered transmitters that you attach to the centre of each record.
Whereas the needle would previously track any changes in speed or direction on timecode vinyl, Phase uses a radio signal to relays any changes in motion to your laptop’s digital vinyl software (e.g. Serato or Traktor).
The product is expected to retail for approximately $300.
