When Zagan said "I want PCDJ controller, So next project is make controller!".
The project began at this time.

Step 1: Create the jog(scratch) wheel
2.Next, cut out inside circle. Diameter is about 10mm bigger than the HDD sylinder.
3.Paste mousepad on platter.
Step 2: Create the wheel base and installation optical sensor
2.Remove cylinder motor, and reassemble at invert direction.
3.Fix optical sensor by clay. After that, installing the platter.
4.Connect to Arduino, And tune the gap between sensor and platter to get the acceleration value from sensor.
Step 3: Miniaturize the sensors
2.Fix the sensor's lens using hot glue. And installing wheel base.
3.We heal the tired by eat Sashimi and drink beer.(It is very important process!)
Step 4: Make the switch box and wiring parts
2.Dig the holes. After that, installing the parts. And soldering.
3.Soldering and soldering and soldering.....
4.All soldering and no play makes amino a dull boy.
5.All soldering and no play makes amino a dull boy.all soldering and no play makes amino a dull boy.All solderring and no play makess amino a dull boy.All solderring and noo play mekes ammino a dyll boy.ALl soldering and no play makes Amino a dull boy.All soldering and no play makes amino a dull boy.all soldreing and no play makes amino a dull boy.All soldering and no play makes amino a dull boy......
Step 5: Programming and debugging of switch box
(There should be a mistake surely!)
Step 6: Test of shift resistor and MIDI signal receive
Step 7: Decoration and finish
Turn the cooling fan at slowly by PWM, and turn on the LED in power supply box.
That mechanism is projection the slow flickering light to the ceiling.
It is not difficult. Switching signal using transistor and output signal from Arduino.
