The Numark DDS Media Player is a perfect choice for mobile DJs who want to locate their music instantly and playback from a variety of media sources. Numark's DDS professional multi-format DJ media player applies familiar CD-player style controls to a wide range of media for today and tomorrow. DDS is a rackmountable multi-media control deck for use with hard drives, CD/DVD drives, thumb drives, iPods, and card readers. You can quickly and easily access any track in your library or any connected device because the Numark DDS gives you fast track access with text search using the click knob or the included keyboard.
See It On Screen
Simplify your performances with Numark's exclusive Crate system on the DDS media player's large, high-definition, backlit color screen. With the Crate system you prepare set lists in advance, on the fly, or a mixture of both. You work with the Numark Crate system the same way you work with records or CDs, picking tracks and queuing them up to Deck A or Deck B. Profile View functionality makes the track's waveform visible in color for fast, visual cueing. Spend less time in headphones and more time entertaining.
The Numark DDS Media Player has convenient USB ports for connection to most any USB device for flexible compatibility with many media formats. Connect a dual-deck mixer to the Numark DDS and you can play, mix, and scratch CD audio with a connected drive as well as MP3, WAV, and AAC (unprotected) files from hard drives, thumb drives, data CDs, SD cards, and iPods. Three USB ports give DDS wide-ranging connection options that are ever further expandable using standard USB hubs. Once connected, you can play two tracks simultaneously, including two songs from the same iPod. DDS can also help you transition from CD to hard drive. You can rip your music from CD straight to your hard drive, even while it's playing. If you're not ready to make the move to hard drive as your main performance medium, you can create the security of a backup while you perform.
You're In the Driver's Seat
Control your music with a wide range of powerful controls. Beatkeeper technology helps you achieve effortless perfect beat mixing every time. It has a visual display that assists you in aligning and matching tempos and beats for less time in cans. And if you prefer a more manual approach, DDS' tap tempo button will appeal to you.
You can pitch-shift any track over an extremely wide range from -100% up to +25%. While pitch shifting, engage Key Lock and be able to alter pitch and key independently of each other. DDS also gives you seamless looping and stuttering for effortless integration.
Get It Fast
The most difficult part of dealing with some mass-storage DJ systems is finding the track you want quickly. The Numark DDS Media Player solves this problem in 2 ways. Its click knob enables you to quickly search by artist or track name. If you need even faster access, the Numark DDS comes with a USB keyboard so you can simply begin typing. You'll have your track in no time. The Numark DDS has all the transport controls you're used to, and connects you to a whole new world of media. The Numark DDS Media Player has the feel and intuitive operation of a CD player, the high-tech power of a high-definition color screen and USB connectivity. No matter where new media goes, you're covered with the Numark DDS player.

Love using this unit. Once you get your library and playlist set up it is easy to use. Cue point can be set on the fly no need to pause and then set. Beat matching is easy using the indicator lights. The "Crate" feature is my favoite part. You can load it with an entire playlist or two, set one deck for continuous and walk away. It will play until the crate is empty. One negative is if you have a large hard drive your seach time will suffer. I use two drives one smaller one for speed and the larger one as an archive(no longer do have to say "Yes I have that song but I left that binder at the house" LOL). I only wish playlist could be built on a computer it would be much faster. Over all I love it.
