D&M Professional & Business Group (Europe) has announced the launch of the new Denon DJ DN-S3700 Digital Media Turntable. The direct drive turntable media player and controller provides DJs with a host of features for enhanced creativity, including a 9” real vinyl spinning platter design, advanced digital features and music access capabilities, with classic turntable touch-feel
First shown at NAMM 2009, the DN-S3700 is a leading-edge single-deck portable DJ instrument. With its large 9” spinning platter design, the DN-S3700 offers DJ’s the best of both digital and analogue realms. In addition to a host of advanced digital features, including USB and MIDI control, the sleek and elegant unit includes a built-in authentic vinyl record for surface control, driven by Denon DJ’s High Torque Direct Drive Motor, providing users with the classic and unmistakable feel of true vinyl.
Sleek New Design, Innovative New Features
In addition to its new 9” spinning platter design, the DN-S3700 features a new sleek and intuitive design with brushed aluminum corners and solid aluminum feet, that will appeal to working DJs who want to look as good as they sound. Innovative new features include three auto loops with real-time loop length adjust and loop trim capabilities. The attractive and easy-to-read new display adds visual waveform data to the mix, providing information on hot start, auto loop, and break point data.
The DN-S3700’s 9” platter mounted with real vinyl is constructed with an ultra high-resolution pulse sensor mechanism to accurately reproduce the subtlest or swiftest scratching movements made by the human hand. The platter can perform other vital functions too, such as pitch bending, frame searching and quick file navigation from external USB devices. For added creative flexibility, three “hot starts” can be made on the fly, which also double as auto loops. In addition to auto loops, traditional A-B loops can be manually executed on the opposite side of the player. And thanks to its five built-in crystal clear DSP Effects, building the mood of the dance floor and remixing live has never been easier. DJs can easily activate and have full parameter control with a Dry/Wet mix control of the five effects: Flanger, Filter (High-Mid-Low), Echo and Echo/Loop, as well as 3 Platter Effects, including Brake (adjustable in real-time), Dump (reverse sound without losing true forward time, like a radio edit), and Reverse (plays your music backwards). For those DJ’s who perform long mix transitions and require high pitch resolution, the S3700 offers pitch control via a 100mm pitch slider with .02% for the 4% pitch range and .05% for the 10/16% pitch range. 24%/50%/100% ranges are also available.
Innovative “Spinning” Turntable Style MIDI Controller with Control of DJ Software
The innovative Denon DN-S3700 is a “spinning” turntable style MIDI controller with sound card, that gives users the advanced capability of controlling various DJ MAC/PC application software. The super-versatile and sophisticated DJ instrument lets users bring together and enjoy access to huge music libraries from virtually all-existing storage media, including AppleÒ iPodsÒ and USB flash drives. For total flexibility, it features an illuminated slot-in CD player; a quick-loading and fast data reading mechanism that offers a variety of audio compact disc support, including CD, CD-R, CD-RW and CD-TEXT. Thanks to its advanced external USB device support, users have access to vast portable music collections stored on external USB media and may connect their iPod, thumb drive, and large hard drives for easy access to small or extensive mp3/wav libraries of up to 50,000 files. Simply plug these devices into the DN-S3700 to obtain the powerful on-board features, such as Instant Start, seamless Looping, effects, Scratching and easy File Searching, to name just a few.
Notably, with its MIDI Interface Controller (PC/MAC), the DN-S3700 is also designed to interface and control a variety of popular DJ programs that supports USB MIDI in/out interface, either by user custom mapping or direct native support by the software vendor. Users can easily control their favorite DJ software, all from a single advanced compact player. Unlike most dedicated DJ midi controllers that are only USB bus powered, the DN-S3700 encompasses its own internal power supply to achieve the highest electrical specifications, resulting in best possible performance. Sound quality from the DN-S3700 is provided by industry leading Burr Brown (a product of TI) 24 bit DAC processing, ensuring superior audio output fidelity.
The DN-S3700 comes complete with Denon DJ’s acclaimed Music Manager Software. Among its groundbreaking features is a highly refined search system, which lets users navigate and tag edit quickly through any MP3/ WAV files connected to the system, with search criteria including Artist, Album, Title, Genre, Year, BPM and Playlists. The Music Manager will also auto calculate the BPM’s for your files as well as create the visual waveform data supported on the DN-S3700’s display.
The Denon DN-S3700 is scheduled to ship in March 2009.
