Overview

The American Audio Velocity Professional Dual DJ CD Player expands your creativity with 9 digital effects and professional features including digital scratching, beatmatching and syncing effects with music, sampling and looping, and changing tempos and mixing FX on the fly. The ultrasensitive dual PowerTouch interactive jog wheels give DJs precise control over digital scratching and other digital effects. This patent-pending jog wheel is sensitive to the slightest touch supports Digital Scratching 2.0 technology with 2 scratching modes: digital scratch mode and beat juggle mode.

The American Audio Velocity's digital BPM counter uses advanced DSP technology to match beats with complete precision and accuracy, and will synchronize the digital FX exactly to the beat of the music and automatically keep those FX in sync at all times. The Velocity media player also features a TAP Button for quick, manual beatmatching.

The DJ CD player's 9 onboard effects include filter, echo, trans, skid, phase, flanger, pan, and bop. The effects can be layered on top of one another for endless creative possibilities. The Velocity MP3 CD player makes it easy for any DJ to use effects like a pro, because each effect has 6 preset parameters developed by a panel of leading DJs. You can also easily customize the effects parameters with the Parameter Time and Parameter Ratio adjustment knobs.

Tempo lock (master tempo) allows the tempo of the music to be changed without distorting the vocal portion of the track. The Hyper Pitch feature allows up to a ±100% pitch change. It also comes equipped with pitch bend buttons and ±4%, 8%, and 16% pitch selections.

Other professional features on this dual MP3 CD player include seamless looping, reverse play, true instant start, anti-shock memory (10 seconds per side), fader Q start (when used with an American Audio Q-series mixer), flip flop (relay playback between 2 decks), and a lock out mode for security. There are 3 flash start sampler buttons per side, each of which can store up to a 7-second sample, with or without a CD in the drive. The volume and pitch of the music and samples can be adjusted separately.

Ideal for the club, stage, or studio, the American Audio Velocity includes a 4-space controller and can be used as either a rackmountable or tabletop unit. The deck comes with 4 sturdy rubber feet. Designed for easy portability, the total weight is just 16 lbs.

Other features of the American Audio Velocity MP3 CD player include a headphone output with volume control; single/continuous play; selectable elapsed, remain, and total remain time display.

not reliable

By Eric Breer

from las vegas, nevada

Velocity would be cool, if it worked all the time. It has intermitant problems loading cds and displays NO CD. Twice. I shipped it to American DJ and still have problems. I cant deal with the reliability problem, when a bride is ready to walk down the aisle. Thumbs down. They are not good.

Velocity Night Mare

By Albert G

from Fontana, California

I had purchase the Velocity Dual cd/player in June 2009 Because I was told by the Vendor it was the top of the line cd player, well what a disappointment it was ,the right side player had went out in August 2009 it would display No CD read after getting it repair I was told it must be the disk that I was playing, meaning that it must have been burn to fast so I stopped playing other peoples cds and only purchased store quality, well the left player went out in Feb 2010 the displayed said the samething No CD read after getting that repaired I decided to purchase Rane SL3 to stop using any other cds but the time code disk cd well I couldn't believe it but the left player stopped working again in June 2010,the system is only used at home. Well the 1 year warranty was over for a few days and American Audio honored the warranty and are fixing it they are replacing both the machanical players for me, I thank them for that , I like the product very much but its just giving me to much problems and I dont play it very much , if American Audio can resolve this issue this would be the best product out there.

Great Piece of Equiptment!

By Bigg Kidd

from Houston, TX

I just sold my American Audio DCD Pro1000 and upgraded to the Velocity MP3 player. This unit is a whole lot better than the pro1000 because of the added new features. There's 2 different types of scratch modes, 9 on board special FX's, volume and pitch control for samples, easy looping, BPM matching and tons more. You can even control the delay on the FX's that you choose. The CD jogwheel is touch-sensitive but has a heavy feel to it that is similar to the vinyl turntables. This unit can do just as many tricks as some of the other higher-end systems and costs a fraction of the price. The Velocity is very easy to function, its light-weight, and easy to setup. Truthfully speaking, the Velocity MP3 may be one of the best dual rackmount cd players currently out on the market. Plus with all of the Guitar Center sales and holiday specials, you're guaranteed to find it here for less.
