Numark releases KMX02 all-in-one karaoke dj mix station with innovative new key change feature 30/11/06
Numark has just announced the release of a new, all-in-one karaoke mixer for DJs who want to work karaoke into their shows, or for karaoke fans who are looking for a top of the line product for their X-Factor and American Idol aspirations.
Designed, say Numark, with their â€˜users firstâ€™ philosophy in mind, the KMX02 DJ Station gives karaoke hosts an innovative new feature at their disposal: Key Change. This important new tool allows even the most â€˜harmonically-challengedâ€™ singers the chance to belt out their favorite tunes played back in a key that is matched to their own vocal range.
The KMX02 is a compact, highly-portable mixer, and Numark tell us that it is the only all-inclusive karaoke system on the market today, featuring dual CD+G drives and three microphone inputs, each with their own tone control and echo effects. Additionally, two crossfader-controlled video outputs allow users to professionally enhance any gathering, whether at a club or bar, a teamwork-building sales conference or even their own home. With highly-intuitive, easy-to-use controls developed through years of testing by their engineers and field DJs, Numark say that the KMX02 is the ideal tool to integrate music and visuals in any karaoke environment.
Numark Product Development Manager Christopher Roman told us, â€œMobile DJs, Karaoke DJs and bars and clubs looking for a reliable, no-hassle karaoke solution will love the KMX02. The Key Change is a very important new feature to the karaoke world, since it allows DJs to change the key of the source CD, in 1/2 step increments. You can match the music output with the realistic vocal range of your karaoke users without modifying the original musicâ€™s pitch or tempo.â€�
For pitch and tempo adjustments, â€˜pitch blendâ€™ control wheels with a plus/minus range of 12% both input channels give additional mixing and beat-matching options, while the KMX02â€™s fader start buttons facilitate precise song cueing every time. Key Features
