Why is it important to have a 12” motorized platter with vinyl record and slipmat?
For professional DJs, a 12” motorized platter with vinyl record and slipmat provides
the essential experience of
-The DJ uses the active motion of a motorized platter to scratch and adjust pitch.
Can the DJ use their own records and slipmats?
Yes, the HDX can be easily customized with another record and slipmat.
What is the torque and why is this important?
Torque is the force of the platter moving. In the HDX it is the current industry maximum of 4.7 Kgf cm. This is important because, the DJ uses the resistance of this force in order to scratch effectively. Poor torque, such as that found with a belt drive, means the platter will not stand up to the rigors of heavy scratching.
What is smart looping?
Smart looping is a feature that lets the user make perfect loops every time by using the Beatkeeper to create the loop. The user will press the smart loop button, then press the in and out buttons close to the beat they want to loop on. The Beatkeeper aligns and quantizes the loop to be perfect. With the +/- buttons the user can then double or half the loop.
What other cool features are on the HDX?
Fashioned after Numark premium TTX and CDX turntables, the HDX is rugged and durable. A built in Beatkeeper gives accurate and instant BPM readouts. Key Lock allows users to change pitch +/- 100% yet still maintain the current key. The built in DSP processor allows creative effects to be used. Stutter allows the user to jump around the music instantly and still control the music via the vinyl record. Cue point storage allows the user to jump instantly to stored points and not spend time cuing up. MIDI makes this unit fully controllable in a studio environment.
