Well this changes everything, every once in a while a product comes along that makes the industy stop and sit up and take notice and this is one of those products. This is the Pioneer DJ PLX-CRSS12 and is a ground breaking hybrid turntable fit for use in the digital age of DJing but with all the DNA of an old skool DJ turntable that has been a stable part of the DJ industry since the 70s. The PLX-CRSS12 is part of the the PLX range of professional turntables from Pioneer DJ but this takes the humble turntable in to the future and beyond. Yes this thing PLAYS vinyl records in the traditional way that all DJs have learned to master and love. But in the modern age of the DJ carrying all that vinyl, it maybe not for all, and with all the digital DJ gear about who can blame anyone for going down the Digital DJ route. The PLX-CRSS12 is simply the best of both worlds and offers the DJ a way to play digital music files using a timecode system. DJing using timecode vinyl is not new and has been perfected since the birth of Stanton final scratch system. Well the tech has moved on a lot since then and this turntable has the time code system built in, so no time code vinyls or skipping needles. Timecode systems or DVS are brilliant, but now,with the PLX-CRSS12 no need for the vinyl or the need for stylus, so no more skips and jumps and that really does change everything. If you like playing traditional vinyl records and think its time to dip your toe in to the Digital DJ world this has to be a contender. Be sure to check the videos and all the key features CRSS12 has to offer and we think this is a game changer.
Tone-arm-free DVS control eliminates skipping in digital playback
No matter how hard you scratch, you’ll never experience needle skipping when you use the PLX-CRSS12 in Digital
Vinyl mode, thanks to the tone-arm-free system. The new MAGVEL CLAMP holds a record firmly in place when
you touch it, enabling it to directly control the digital music file, giving you the true feeling of vinyl with no need to
use the tone arm. When playing analog records, the experience will be just like using the popular PLX-1000 deck.
Feeling adjustment to suit your style
Find your perfect “weight” setting by turning the dial on top of the MAGVEL CLAMP. The amount of torque will be
increased or decreased to make the record feel lighter or heavier without changing or adjusting slip mats or slip
sheets. You can also adjust the turntable’s torque level in the utility settings, and there are 3 deck stopping speeds
to choose from via a switch on the front of the unit.
Performance Pads and OLED display for accurate and rapid control
The PLX-CRSS12 inherits classic turntable layout elements, but a new addition is the 4 built-in MIDI-mappable
Performance Pads which put your favorite features at your fingertips. They’re right where you need them – just
below the platter – so you can fire off Hot Cues and samples quicker than ever, which comes in handy even more
if you’re performing on a mixer that has no pads. There’s native support for various pad modes (see below), and a
dedicated button enables you to switch control from pads 1-4 to 5-8. The pads are MIDI mappable too, so you can
assign them to other features.
Native pad mode support
Serato DJ Pro: Hot Cue, Sampler, Stems, Scratch Bank, Roll, Saved Loop
rekordbox: Hot Cue, Sampler, Track Separation, Sample Scratch, Pad FX1, Beat Jump
The built-in OLED display also helps you focus on the deck. You can keep an eye on the tempo range and key
when Step Pitching with Analog or Digital Vinyl mode, and, when you’re using Digital Vinyl mode, you can reference
BPM, key, deck number information, and the name of the software you’re running. The display also gives you quick
access to the utility settings – all of which reduces the need to break concentration and look at your laptop or mixer
during a performance.
Evolved, high-quality sound
Let your audience enjoy your music the way it was intended to be heard. The PLX-CRSS12 has been carefully built
to improve on the sound quality of the PLX-1000 professional DJ turntable, which is highly acclaimed for its accurate
sound reproduction. A switching power supply is used to eliminate transformer power supply vibration and flux
leakage, and unwanted noise is suppressed, resulting in high-resolution sound quality. As with the PLX-1000, the
upper part of the chassis is made of high-mass die-cast zinc and the lower part is made of 8 mm thick resin to
optimize the chassis structure and vibration-damping materials. The RCA terminals are also made of machined
gold-plated parts like those on the PLX-1000, and the phono signal is directly transmitted through a stable
connection with the plug to reproduce the sound of analog records with high-quality audio.
• Replaceable MAGVEL CLAMP
Additional clamps are available to buy if you want to take your own set on the road, or if you need to replace a
clamp that’s been lost. You can store the MAGVEL CLAMP neatly in a dedicated area on top of the deck.
• Robust and elegant design in matte black color
The PLX-CRSS12 has a matte black color scheme, with special coatings applied to the tone arm and other metal
parts, plus carefully crafted details that give it a robust and elegant appearance.
• Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox compatibility
The PLX-CRSS12 is compatible with Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox. By connecting this unit to a PC/Mac with DJ
software installed, and to a mixer that supports the DVS function of the respective DJ software, you can start playing
in Digital Vinyl mode and use the Performance Pads.
