What Is Turntablism?

Written by on July 19, 2022

Turntablism, or turntablism as it is also known, is an art form that involves moving your hands in rapid fashion across a turntable while you play a record. The record player used in this form of music is called a turntable.

There are many different types of turntables, and they vary in size and cost. The first type of turntable was made in the 19th century. It was called the mechanical turntable. This type of turntable uses a motor to spin the platter at a constant speed.

The next type of turntable was the belt driven turntable. This turntable is similar to the mechanical turntable except that instead of using a motor, it uses a belt that runs around a motor.

In the 1960’s, a new type of turntable was invented. This turntable is called the direct drive turntable. This type does not use a motor at all. Instead, it uses a small motor to move a small arm which then spins the platter. This type of turntables is very quiet.

Another type of turntable is the digital turntable. This type uses a computer chip to control the speed of the platter. These turntables are very expensive.

The most common type of turntable today is the cartridge style turntable. This type is used in the majority of turntable systems. This type uses a tonearm to pick up the sound from the vinyl. The tonearm is attached to the end of a rotating arm. The arm is attached to a motor. When the arm moves, the platter spins. The tonearm picks up the sound from the vinyl and sends it to a preamp. The preamp converts the signal into an analog signal. This signal is sent to a phono stage. This phono stage amplifies the signal and converts it into a high frequency signal. The signal is then sent to the speakers.

The above is a basic explanation of how turntablism works. There are many other types of turntables out there. Some of them have special features like a built in equalizer, automatic pitch correction, etc. You can find these types of turntables at specialty stores or online.
