With all the features needed for today's technology-minded DJ.
Providing a newly-designed high-resolution Jog wheel with Multi-style, illuminated position indicator, CD & Mass-Storage Device playback, built-in sampler, hot-cues, loops beat-synchronized FX and full MIDI control, the Stanton CMP.800 is a true high performance DJ cross-media player at an unbelievable price point that won't break the bank.
The CMP.800 builds on existing CD and CD-MP3 playback functionality by including the ability to playback MP3's stored on external USB thumb drives and hard drives. The "ChainLink" feature allows you to connect two CMP.800s via a single USB cable to share a single external USB mass storage device between the two players. This way, DJs don't have to manage multiple storage devices, and can show up to the party with only a single Mass Storage device. The included "Media Wallet" software, allows you to sort and prepare their media for playback, creating playlists and organizing their songs on your computer before a gig.
Full MIDI Control
The CMP.800 also performs as a fully-functional MIDI controller allowing you to control applications (such as Native Instrument's Traktor and Mixvibes Cross) with full assignment of virtually every button and knob on the top panel as well as Deck A/B assignment.
Auto Beat Loop
The CMP.800 includes both traditional Manually-Controlled Loops and BPM-Controlled Auto Beat Loop functionality, with 6 different loop lengths. Loop length can be adjusted during playback allowing you to create unique mixes and stutter effects.
Multi-Function Jog Wheel with Illuminated Jog Ring
The CMP.800 features a high resolution, touch-sensitive illuminated platter wheel for easy viewing of cue points and speed, with 9 different LED modes. The CMP.800 platter can even control functions such as pitch bending, loop end point, scanning, frame searching, parameter control for effects, and pitch/volume control for sampling.
3 Beat-Syncable DSP Effects
The CMP.800 provides 3 high-quality DSP effects, derived from our award-winning M.207 mixer, including ECHO, FLANGER, and FILTER with 2 control parameters per effect.
Hot Cues and Loops
The CMP.800 can store up to 4 Hot Cues per song, with an internal memory of 2048 cue points for audio CD's and MP3 CD's. Also, Hot Cues can be stored on your USB Mass-Storage device for expandable and virtually unlimited Cue and loop storage.
For even more creative remix possibilities, the CMP.800 lets DJs store four 5-second samples on the unit that can be played simultaneously with your currently playing track (CD or MP3). Sample playback is controlled from the 4 rugged rubber trigger pads on the front of the unit, and have available pitch and volume control for mixing the samples with currently playing material.
