response to numerous requests from professional DJ's, Pioneer has
created a limited-edition upgraded pro-use CD player that handles
uncannily like a turntable. We've done it by including an extra-large
jog dial for music search and cue-point selection. And we've simplified
operation with a Loop-Out Adjust function. Combining superlative digital
audio quality with a distinct vinyl turntable feel, the CDJ-500II
is a music maker in a class by itself.
THE PROFESSIONAL CD PLAYER
Jog Dial- For a Closer-To-Vinyl
This large, quick-response dial makes frame-by-frame
search and cue point selection easy and accurate while providing a
closer-to-vinyl turntable feel.
The CDJ-50011's top-mounted controls are easy to use, for DJs used
to working with turntables.
When you hit the Play button, the CDJ-500II starts
the music instantly so you can match rhythms with pinpoint accuracy.
A light bar provides an at-a-glance graphic indication
of elapsed playing time.
A DJ-standard long-stroke slide
allows quickresponse control over pitch and speed within the range
An industry first, this new Master Tempo control locks in the music's
pitch even when the tempo changes. Now you can vary the beat with
no change in vocal or instrument tone.
Any sequence can be sampled and seamlessly looped as many times
as desired. REAL-TIME

a live performance. The end point is also set in real time. LOOP-OUT ADJUST
