xwax is an open-source Digital Vinyl System (DVS) for Linux. It allows DJs and turntablists to playback digital audio files (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC and more), controlled using a normal pair of turntables via timecoded vinyls.
The focus is on an accurate vinyl feel which is efficient, stable and fast.

64 Studio has anounced its PiDeck project; an open source project to retro-fit the Raspberry Pi and xwax onto any DJ turntable. There's a couple of awesome demo videos and it's even been picked up by DJworx and CDM. Excellent work by Daniel, Chris and everyone involved.
