Hoskaudio Smart Turntable

Corporation
The Hoskaudio Smart Turntable is designed to create a much easier and smarter vinyl listening experience by connecting a turntable to our application for various control and recording functionalities. 
Our project scope is to design a Smart Turntable. There is a huge vinyl resurgence currently. However, turntable features have remained the same for decades, we aim to change that. Our Smart Turntable will have an extensive feature set. We will create a piece of software that encompasses a clean user interface via a phone application. Users will be able to control playback functionality over the cloud such as start/stop and motor speed. 

The application will feature real-time recording direct from vinyl while uploading said recording to the cloud or local storage. These recordings can be streamed live from anywhere. The vinyl record playback audio will pass through our software which reads audio metadata in real-time to display artist info, track wiki, etc. As a standalone unit, our Smart Turntable can stream internet or local files on its own (without a vinyl record spinning).  A physical hardware turntable will be fabricated, complete with a custom tonearm, platter, and plinth. Inside our custom designed turntable, there will be an isolated case to house the control unit.
