Because it takes a lot less room, the sound doesn't have to be recorded on 
vinyl or shellac or whatever, and the scratching device can be easily 
transformed in a multitude of closely-related devices that aren't like 
turntables anymore. Then you can save those devices and share them with 
like-minded people on pd-list without having to pay kilodollars of 

You already have a modern digital computer for other reasons, so, it's 
irrelevant to think of what would be the rationale for buying one.

And anyway, it's been a while that we can think of turntables as being 
parodies of what can be done with [tabread~] or any other kind of array
