Denon DJ brought the world's first, motor driven active platter to DJ media players back in 2003 with the DNS5000. Continuing its heritage of motorized media players, Denon DJ now introduces the SC5000M. The 'M' (for Motorized) is, at its core, an SC5000 Prime DJ media player, already a (DJ Mag) Multi-Tech Award-winning unit, but now headlined with a 7", real vinyl and adjustable torque, motorized platter.
This die-cast aluminum platter features ultra-high-resolution MIDI (3600 ticks per rotation) performance accuracy. Added to adjustable vinyl tension for slip/scratch control, this blesses DJs with a true, mechanical spin beneath the fingertips, making their music really feel alive!
The appeal of the SC5000M touches the hearts of DJs at all levels of experience, age and inquisitiveness into the essence of legacy vinyl performance. DJ A-listers, Turntablists and Pro/Industry luminaries have already 'hands-on' previewed the M's platter performance and their response has been unified that the legacy, DJ vinyl experience has truly come home!
Redefined Motor Technology
Denon DJ have produced a more powerful and capable motor than has previously been available on a DJ media player and paired this with the elegance of the SC5000 interface. Rotating the tactile and ergonomically designed platter, this high/low adjustable torque motor is Brushless DC Electric technology. Brushless motors are far superior than their Brushed type counterparts, featuring high torque to weight ratio, increased efficiency/reliability, reduced noise and electromagnetic interference plus a longer lifetime expectancy too.
The SC5000M brushless motor is unaffected by centrifugal force, maintains efficient conduction cooling and offers protection from environmental dust or dirt. Using Denon DJ's free, Engine Prime music analysis and management software, DJs can import extensive and meticulously curated digital music collections from iTunes, Serato DJ Pro, and rekordbox, including playlists, folders, hot cues and loops. In addition, integrated support has also been added for Native Instruments users to import their full or part music collections and enjoy a 'laptop free Traktor experience' on the SC5000M.
Multi-Award Winning Pedigree
The SC5000M shares the same award-winning, multicore processor powered technology as the SC5000. In DJ Magazine's prestigious Tech Award event, this won not one, but two of DJ Mag's most coveted awards - 1st place winner in the 'Ultimate Club Deck' and 'Innovative New Product' categories. To take the first place, winning position in a head-to-head with the currently ubiquitous competitor CD/media player, shows clearly that Denon DJ has truly disrupted the marketplace and brought available and advanced tech solution for the future of professional DJ performance.
On-Board Track Analysis
The 'M' and the SC5000 series are the only DJ media players available that will internally analyze a DJs music collection, including track BPM, musical key, calculate Beatgrids and draw waveforms, inside the unit itself. A DJ can simply insert a thumb-drive (or SD card) of unanalyzed music and the SC5000M will internally analyze all loaded track metadata in the background, with the song available to play instantly, including immediate cueing. Direct import of Rekordbox collections, including playlists, hot cues, and loops, can also be done quickly and effortlessly within the SC5000M, straight from a DJs media source.
Class-Leading Time-Stretch Algorithm
The SC5000M has a DAW quality, on-board time stretching algorithm that changes forever the quality expectations of DJs when performing with different genres, tempi and styles of open-format music. The musical key can be shifted, matched and locked, with super-extreme tempo changes effected with sonic integrity across all audio frequencies. Bring a 95 bpm Hip-Hop track up in speed to mix into a 125 bpm House track, blend in a Trance track at 138, raise the tempo up to a Drum 'n Bass track at 170, then fire in a Grime trackback at 140 bpm - mixing creativity and sonic perfection on the SC5000M.
8 expressive control trigger pads
Take full standalone control of triggering hot cues, loops, rolls and slicer with no laptop or third-party software in sight. The SC5000M's eight, MPC style trigger pads give DJs full live performance expression to manipulate audio, create live remixes, beat-juggle and drop both straight-time and triplet rhythm cuts, all securely locked to the players quantize setting (or used without for even more time-signature performance experimentation). The SC5000M's multicore processor power even enables beat and hot-cue juggling on one layer, whilst a second background track plays on the other. New levels of expressive DJ performance await your fingers!
