Tone-arm-free DVS control eliminates skipping in digital playback
No matter how hard you scratch, you’ll never experience needle skipping when you use the PLX-CRSS12 to control rekordbox or Serato in Digital Vinyl mode, thanks to the tone-arm-free system. The new MAGVEL CLAMP holds a record firmly in place when you touch it, enabling it to directly control the digital music file, giving you the true feeling of vinyl with no need to use the tone arm. When playing analog records, the experience will be just like using the popular PLX-1000 deck.
Feeling adjustment to suit your style
You can quickly adjust the record's "weight" with the dial on top of the MAGVEL CLAMP. This feels like changing the slipmat to make the vinyl more or less grippy with the platter. Now you can effortlessly continue your performance without the hassle of changing slip mats or slip sheets.
- PLX-CRSS12 Performance Features
Customizable torque level
It's easy to change the turntable rotation torque level in the utility settings to suit your preference. You can choose from "High" for quick startup when you press PLAY, "Low" for the traditional torque speed that many DJs are familiar with, and "Mid" for a balance between the two.
Performance Pads for accurate and rapid control
The PLX-CRSS12 inherits classic turntable layout elements, but a new addition is the 4 built-in MIDI-mappable Performance Pads which put your favorite features at your fingertips. They’re right where you need them – just below the platter – so you can fire off Hot Cues and samples quicker than ever, which comes in handy even more if you’re performing on a mixer that has no pads. There’s native support for various pad modes (see below), and a dedicated button enables you to switch control from pads 1-4 to 5-8. The pads are MIDI mappable too, so you can assign them to other features.
OLED display for quick confirmation of track information
The built-in OLED display also helps you focus on the deck. You can keep an eye on the tempo range and key when Step Pitching and, when you connect the PLX-CRSS12 via USB to your PC/Mac running DJ software, you can reference BPM, key, deck number information. The display also gives you quick access to the utility settings – all of which reduces the need to break concentration and look at your laptop or mixer during a performance.
With features and design inherited from the DJM-900NXS2, this 2-channel mixer is ideal to partner with any of your multiplayers or turntables. The Magvel fader combined with smooth EQ and channel fader curves give an assured feel to mixing. Sound Colour FX and Beat FX with parameter control open up new creative possibilities. And thanks to the 64-bit digital signal processer you’ll enjoy warm, high-quality audio from both analogue and digital sound sources.
The DJM-450 unlocks rekordbox dj and rekordbox dvs, so you can DJ with tracks stored on your PC/Mac when using turntables.
