Numark Introduces New DJ Dual CD Player
The latest rack-mount twin CD player from Numark is currently making it’s debut at the Frankfurt Musikmesse exhibition, which started yesterday and runs until Saturday 4th March. The CDN88 MP3 builds on the success of its predecessor, the CDN88, with effects, scratch emulation and now mp3 support.
DJs can scratch in real time using the CDN88 MP3's dual jog wheels and create two different seamless loops, including smart looping, with three hot-stutter starts on each deck for extensive creative capability. Twelve DSP effects with direct access, including reverse, enable DJs to perform creatively and the player even allows the layering of multiple effects.
Numark's exclusive Beatkeeper™ aids in visual beat matching, so the DJ can spend less time listening to their headphones and more time creating the perfect party or event soundtrack. The CDN88 MP3's Interlock function can even automatically beat-match the two decks. The CDN88 MP3 has powerful pitch control with ±6, 12, 25 and 100-percent pitch ranges. It also can store thousands of cue points in its memory for instant access to the DJ’s favorite points in their tracks.
Built for years of reliable performance, CDN88 MP3 is housed in a rigid metal extrusion and to further extend its lifespan, it contains a laser-saving sleep mode. The player also includes a 48-second buffer so the DJ can play with confidence that the music will play skip free.
“CDN88 MP3 is designed for the professional DJ who requires reliable performance in their CD player,” said Chris Roman, Product Development Manager for Numark. “With its solid Anti-Shock™, DSP effects, real-time scratching and high-quality build, CDN88 MP3 stands above other professional CD players.”
The CDN88 MP3 will be available from DJ and professional audio retailers later in 2009.
