Innovative New Functions

Three Playback Methods are Available:
  • Track Mode: Performs mixed playback alternating between tracks from discs in both decks.
  • Disc Mode: Performs mixed playback of track on a single disc in numerical order.
  • Program Mode: Performs mixed playback of tracks in any designated order.
Track Playback Time is Adjustable:
  • Short Time Change:Switches the track at a shorter time.
  • Instant Change:Switches the track at the DJ's preferred time.

Cut In Echo
Zip Cross Fade

The Auto mix function is very effective in the following situations:
  • At times when there no DJ is present in stores, malls, etc. , such as an weekdays nonstop background music can be played in DJ style using the establishment's favorite selections to help creative a more active atmosphere
  • In bars, restaurants or pubs where the staff work as DJs, the Auto Mix function results in considerable labor saving allowing the staff to devote more of their time to customer service.
  • When DJs playing at clubs,etc., need to take a short break to deal with urgent business or emergencies they can use the Auto Mix function to keep the music rolling
*  In case of no beat music, smooth mixing cannot be performed because the BPM or beat timing of certain songs can't be measured correctly.

**In the case of tracks on the same disc, cross fading cannot be performed.

***The CMX-5000, while revolutionary with Auto Beat Mixing capability, does have it's limitations just like any electronic device. There are certain variables, that if present, will cause the Auto Beat Mixing function to not function properly.A few things must be in order for it to Auto Mix:
  • Music must be within a ±16% ratio. If it is not within this range, not only will it not mix, but the beats will not match as well. The BPM's will stay the same (even with the BPM sync pressed).
  • There must be a steady consistent beat in the beginning of the song. A song that starts with just vocals or off beats rhythms will not mix. Any ±16% range BPM should mix if it is has a CONSISTENT beat.
  • You must wait a few seconds for the next song to cue up, before hitting "Instant Change". The player does have to calculate the beats of the next song. It needs just a few seconds to cue up. You will be know that it ready to go when:
    • If the next song programmed is on the other side, an orange colored "dash" going in a semicircle around the display appears.
    • If the next song programmed is on the SAME player, the autocue button quits blinking.
  • The "Instant Change" button must be pressed IN TIME. If you decide to use the "instant change", it must be done in time for it to auto mix.
