Take your player and set it up to play. Now pull the plug. Now plug in for 30 seconds and unplug. This is the effect you'll get and how well it will stop.
Next up, how to control such. http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=IP9258&cat=NET
That should do fine.
Hi there! I'm a final year art student, and I've been tinkering with electronics and record players for the past while, but my ambition has overtaken my technical skill and I'm in need of help and advice.
This isn't strictly a home audio enquiry but I'll pass it by you anyway.
What I want to build is this: three turntables arranged in a triangle formation on separate tables. Their motion needs to be synchronised so that turntable no.1 will start spinning, spin for 30 seconds, stop. Immediately, turntable no.2 begins to turn for thirty seconds and the stop, and so on. This needs to be attached to mains power.
I have been told that I will need to buy a timer in order to do this, but that is all the information I have. Unfortunately there are no technicians with electrical knowledge at my uni.
So, if anyone thinks they can enlighten me, I would appreciate your help!
