The Stanton CMP.800 Cross Media Player builds on existing CD and CD-MP3 playback functionality by including the ability to playback MP3 files stored on external USB thumb drives and hard drives.
The Stanton CMP.800 also performs as a fully-functional MIDI controller allowing you to control applications (such as Native Instrument's Traktor and Mixvibes Cross) with full assignment of virtually every button and knob on the top panel as well as Deck A/B assignment.
The CMP.800 includes both traditional Manually-Controlled Loops and BPM-Controlled Auto Beat Loop functionality, with 6 different loop lengths. Loop length can be adjusted during playback allowing you to create unique mixes and stutter effects.
The unit also features a high resolution, touch-sensitive illuminated platter wheel for easy viewing of cue points and speed, with 9 different LED modes. The CMP.800 platter can even control functions such as pitch bending, loop end point, tscanning, frame searching, parameter control for effects, and pitch/volume control for sampling.
The "ChainLink" feature allows you to connect two CMP.800s via a single USB cable to share a single external USB mass storage device between the two players.
The included "Media Wallet" software allows you to sort and prepare their media for playback, creating playlists and organizing their songs on your computer before a gig.
The CMP.800 provides 3 high-quality DSP effects, derived from the award-winning M.207 mixer, including ECHO, FLANGER, and FILTER with 2 control parameters per effect.
For even more creative remix possibilities, the CMP.800 lets DJs store four 5-second samples on the unit that can be played simultaneously with your currently playing track (CD or MP3). Sample playback is controlled from the 4 rugged rubber trigger pads on the front of the unit, and have available pitch and volume control for mixing the samples with currently playing material.
