What turntables are best for me?

I Dj for a rapper and right now we only go off a laptop using virtual DJpro the free version. Our shows are getting more big so i want to start using turntables to add more to the show. i want a turntable setup that lets me still run the music off my laptop but can still scratch add FX and all of that. Any recommendations and advice is helpful. I'm new to all of this.

H'ok.... You can use one of two options. The cost, I'll leave you to research, but I'll use what I have as examples

1. Get a midi controller. Some - coupled with most DJ software such as Tracktor scratch or VDJ - will give you scratch-like options like the Pioneer DDJ ergo. The pro of this is that its very portable and minimum fuss as far as wiring up is concerned. One usb cable between controller and laptop, and one cable between controller and sound output (amp).

2 Get an appropriate DJ soundcard from ebay such as a maya44 usb (budget £50), or Native instruments Audio 4 (£more). The key for these types of sound cards is that you can (with the aid of timecode cd's/vinyl) 'scratch your mp3's' The laptop connects to the sound card, the cd player or turntable connects to the soundcard, the soundcard then goes onto whatever mixer you have, and the mixer obviously goes to the amp. Wack the timecodes in your CD players or on your turntables, and you now have the ability to scratch whatever you have on your laptop. Please note that for having the option to scratch on your cd player,, the cd player must have that option in its own right. You cannot get a CD player to scratch if its not designed to do so. Examples: Pioneer CD-400 - yes. Pioneer CDJ-200, no.

Good luck

Turntables - Recommends Technics SL2000/SL1210 - classic turntables. Now not being produced, but check ebay or cash converters. Saw a pair going for £340 at my local one
