Lately, I have become very interested in everything having to do with DJ's. I have downloaded plenty of Digital DJ softwares and have grown to like a few of them. After looking at some real DJ gear.......I was dissapointed that most of them were at least a few hundred bucks.(even the cheaper stuff).
So instead I decided to break out my handy dandy Lego collection and make my own Lego DJ Turntable.
Let's Get Started !
And Please! If you liked this instructable at all please vote on it in the USB contest. I really does mean alot to me! Thank you!
Step 1: Getting Started
First download Virtual DJ Home Free . As the name suggests this is totally free software and it's really easy to use.
Here's A link http://www.virtualdj.com/download/free.html
After you download that, play around with it a little bit. It's alot of fun and even cooler when you have a Lego Scratcher.
You will notice that this software allows you to "Scratch the record" (AKA. The WIKI WIKI WIKI) when you use your mouse wheel over the playing record. This is the key to our entire project.
Now, As far as materials go. You are going to need the following:
-An old USB mouse that still works.
-A blank CD, or any other disk you don't care about.
-A decent amount of Legos.
Around 20 - 30, 2x4blocks
Some Smooth 1x2 plates
One Spinning Thingy ( See Picture)
A few long thin plates for the bottom
-A Glue Gun, (Or some Super Glue)
-A Small screwdriver
-A little Creativity
