*Navigator: DJ Science - D'Groove*
D'Groove (Digital Groove) is the world's first digital haptic force
feedback turntable system. It controls the playback rate and position of
digital music (MP3's, WAVs, CDs, etc) using a physical turntable
controller that plugs into a computer. It also uses "haptic" force
feedback to provide information about the music to the DJ through the
sense of touch.
D'Groove was designed and created by Timothy for his Master's Degree at
the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
D'Groove consists of 3 physical components that work with specially
designed software to control the playback of music.
The turntable platter is the focal point of the interface. It operates
much like a conventional turntable, rotating to produce playback in the
music. The lines on the platter facilitate a unique visual beat matching
aid described in the feature section below. Each revolution plays back
exactly one bar of music (or 4 beats).
