Numark have announced the iCDX Tabletop CD/HD Player and DJ controller. With its built-in CD/DVD drive, USB ports for connecting any USB mass storage device such as iPods, hard drives, memory sticks and computers, Numark say that the iCDX provides an indefinite amount of song selection and DJ control possibilities. Here's what else they have to say about it...
With its extensive USB mass storage connectivity, the iCDX can be used as a vehicle to manipulate and store MP3 filesâ€”facilitating rapid access to a massive music library. To further its USB connectivity, the iCDX comes complete with an adaptable docking station for iPod. When interfacing with personal computers and software, the iCDX can interface with a wide variety of popular DJ software packages.
Complete with an illuminated CD/DVD drive for playing multiple disc formats and support for MP3, including ID tags, hot starts, seamless looping, and scratching, the compact iCDX offers DJs a higher level of control for playing music. This performance-oriented media player includes DSP effects, a touch sensitive scratch wheel, automatic BPM counter, a digital output, and a large LCD screen.
Featuring an illuminated slot-load drive mechanism that supports the CD/CD-RW/DATA DVD disc formats, the new iCDX provides a wealth of functionalityâ€”from playing commercial CDs, to working with custom created discs. With its full support for the MP3 format, the Numark iCDX is a comprehensive tool designed to make a DJâ€™s work easier. This exceptional player provides hot starts, seamless looping, and scratching. By working with the MP3 format, DJs can now fit substantially more music onto a single CD; dramatically reducing the volume/weight of the music library they transport.
Associated with the iCDXâ€™s pitch function is Key Lockâ€”with a range of Â± 100%. For working with tempo, the iCDX give DJs all the control they could possible want. This powerful player provides an automatic BPM counter, and a manual tap function. Further, the feature-packed iCDX includes a generous assortment of integrated, great sound effects, including Phaser, Filter, Flanger, Echo, Chop, and Pan.
For interfacing with sound reinforcement and additional DJ equipment, the iCDX provides analog line level RCA output connectors as well as a SPDIF digital output, enabling this versatile player to seamlessly integrate into any setup. For even greater control during the heat of performance, the iCDX also provides a fader start jack that can be connected to fader start-equipped audio mixers. The iCDX functions as a sampler and provides adjustable wet/dry levels for effects.
Numark CEO Jack Oâ€™Donnell commented on the new iCDX, â€œThe iCDX is at the forefront of Numarkâ€™s emerging high-tech musical revolution. We have created a masterful controller in which the DJ can easily select and manipulate ANY MP3 from any storage device all in one compact package. Weâ€™re genuinely excited about this cutting-edge technology.â€�
