The Technics (branch of the Panasonic) will go to make the official launching of the Sl-dz1200, name technician of sweats "Direct Digital Drive Turntable". It allows to save points of cue save, possesss to sampler on-board, she allows to create loops, and even though safe the points of CUE in the SD (standard of memory stick), simulation of scratch in vinyl also became possible, because its turntable follows same the standards of its traditional record players direct drive.
This new device reads CDs of aúdio and CDs with archives MP3, besides accepting recorded archives in memory stick SD. With this the Technics intends to desbancar the competition of the CDJ1000 (of the Pioneer), that it came dominating the preference (and the market...) of the devices of COMPACT DISC for DJs.
Rumors say that the Sl-dz1200 will be compatible with the End Scratch and Traktor, however this was still not confirmed by the company. E to follow this launching, the Technics launched mixer Sh-mz1200, with four canals, all the digital entrances, that design of the Sl-dz1200 folloies and would be "ideal" to mixer for DJs that they use the new devices.
the player features onboard sampler with up to 40 seconds of internal sample memory.samples can be edited and stored to SD memory cards using the card slot.with a card reader connected to a pc, samples can be transferred onto the card from pc and vise-versa for further editing.all samples can be scratched and played exactly the same as cd audio.this is also true for mp3 audio files stored oncd.the dz1200 playes compressed music files just like vinyl,theoretically allowing a complete set to be played from just two cd roms.
four cue pads can store four cue points per cd in internal memory,for up to 50 cds.this might not seem as much as other players, but virtually infinate amounts of cue data can be recalled directly from sd card.turntable emulation features such as power off retain the feel of vinyl.there are two versions of reverse,one which is instant (digital),and the other which relies on the platter changin direction (analog0.to enhance the music there are eight simple effects to choose from.for use in a confined space, the dz1200 also carries on playin even if placed at a very steep angle.
the shmz1200 mixer features the same acclaimed EQ found on technics existing ex1200 model.it comes with full digital input and output and channels one and two can be coupled together to allow the unit to be used as a surround sound mixer.
A good buddy o mine has a denon S5000, and i'll tell you this is a very nice piece of equipment. Its key feature is the ability to mix two tracks off the same CD; however, this doesn't work with the mp3 format only the standard .wav. I heard a very unoffical rumour that the new technics can mix two mp3 off the same disc, if this is true it will ultimately be the superior machine. Either way before you invest in a CD mixer it would be a good idea to price out the Denon, as it is a pretty solid machine totally worth a consideration.
P.S. if someone can find out the real facts about the rumour i'm spreading i would greatly appreciate it.
No question really - us Brits will be here for ages, an you can catch Andy C/mampi/Hype/*fill in A list dj here* playing everywhere that has a system at least every fortnight, one of them Technics CD decks will give you years of pleasure!
