Analog-touch cueing system

Thanks to a large buffer memory and ultra-fast DSP, the cue point can be searched for with a jog wheel, just like an analog player. The sound is produced as the wheel is spun, back and forth, slow or fast, just like cueing vinyl. The new way of CD cueing, point focus an alternative way of cueing is also provided. The CDX-35 produces a short loop of sound around the laser pick up, just like any other CD player. The difference with the CDX-35 is that the length can be adjusted from 0.013 to 3 seconds. Therefore, exactly one beat, half bar or full bar can be monitored in a loop and the loop can be moved around. This advanced monitor system makes the CD cueing no longer a pain but fun.

Seamless loop

Up to 20 seconds of sound can be looped instantaneously by pressing buttons. Dedicated start, stop and re-loop / exit buttons allow the DJs to create

and play around with the loop on the fly.

Master tempo / master key

In addition to regular pitch control, the CDX-35 offers two advanced tempo and key controls. Thanks to the DSP technology, the tempo can be changed +- 10% without changing the key, and the key can be changed +-20% without changing the tempo. This feature allows DJs to mix music in perfect pitch and key.

Reverse play

The CDX-35 even plays music in reverse. The special technique, which was only possible with a special analog turntable is now available by just touching a button.

Three plus one instant cue positions

The CDX-35 also offers more playability with the total of four cue / memory points. This feature makes the CDX-35 almost endless multi-sampling machine.

BEFORE USE

Notes on the Compact Disc (CD)

The surface which is glossy like a ralnbow is the front side of the CD, and the surface where the label information is printed is the back side.

Unlike conventional analog disk turntables, the CD player reads information from the disc by applying laser beam, in place of a stylus, on the front surface. Consequently, the performance of CD discs will not degrade after repeated use like conventional analog disks.

■Handle the CD disc carefully so as not to damage the front surface.

■To maintain the CD disc flawless, do not place it in the following locations.

In a place subject to direct sunlight or near a heat source such as a room heater. In a place subject to excessive moisture or dirt.

In a place which may be subject to rain, for example near a window.

■Keep the disc surface always clean.

UP to about 6 billion items of data are recorded on the Cd disc surface. When cleaning the disc surface, always use a specialized CD cleaner product and wipe in the direction as shown below.

Wipe in the radial direction.

Do not wipe in the circumference direction.

Never use record cleaner designed for conventional analog disks, for this may degrade the CD disc surface.

■Always store disc properly in the case.
