It can be simpler than that! Re: [rumori] Fwd: pop music spoofing

Simple, yes, I think they are most charming when they
come together from simply starting two records at the
right time and in sync just 'so'. ('Amen' to Steev's
post below)

If we were to try to find a way to make the "you can
do it at home to your own pop music", aka don't need
to be a musician or wav-editor-geek, we'd want to show
by example with some minimal amount of editting, ya?
How else will the college dorm-party-music trend ever
get into gear? Just throw down the $1 records, set
the turntables and press start and go get yr beer!
Here is the documentation for my most recent batch of
bootlegs, which I'm posting to show how from a
turntable perspective, which should directly translate
to someone simply running two copies of WinAmp at once
and doing the same thing with cd-audio/.wav/.mp3/.ram
versions of tracks (below docs not 100% complete):
DJ BROKENWINDOW - parallel universe #2

These notes are to indicate the pairs of records that
were layered together to create the tracks, including
the speeds at which the turntables (SL1200 standard)
to sync the records. Try this at home with your own
records or mp3s/players!!
Please freely copy this music for anyone as long as
you include a copy of this documentation—or at *least*
