Midi Note Fader Mod introduction

Let me start of with stating that the idea of controlling pitch of the turntable by vertical motion is not new. In fact, JohnBeez introduced the Fretless Fader a couple of years back already.

Vinyl Movement & Fader Position Capturing

A couple of months ago I accidentally bumped into a project that some guys were running on capturing fader movement by using hacked x-faders.
