Denon DJ is displaying the DN-HC1000S USB MIDI Sub-Controller, compatible with Serato™ Scratch Live (developed by Serato Audio Research), which enhances a digital music library with a number of unique tools and performance features. Controlling essential features via mouse or laptop keyboard can often be a challenge, especially considering the focused work environment. The DN-HC1000S, however, is designed to directly interface with and aid DVS systems (turntables / CD players) with Scratch Live, today's most popular DJ software program. The DN-HC1000S offers simple plug 'n play operation via self powered USB connectivity, and it replaces the standard PC keyboard for DVS systems with a set of dedicated controls, including track select and fast search, SHIFT/CLR button, five "hot start" and three sampler buttons, auto loop, Loop IN-OUT with exit/reloop, history and a TAP button. Key features of the DN-HC1000S include:
  • Serato-approved USB MIDI Sub Controller for Serato Scratch Live
  • Simple USB plug-and-play Connection (USB MIDI / Bus power)
  • Dedicated tactile controls to replace computer keyboard shortcuts
  • High-quality steel cabinet with rugged rubber keys
  • File Select knob and buttons with back-forward action keys
  • Track Select and Fast Search buttons
  • SHIFT/CLR Button
  • 5 Cue Point and 3 Sampler Player buttons
  • Auto Loop button with Loop Cut knob & Roll
  • Loop IN/OUT button with Exit/Reloop
  • File, Browse, History and Prepare keys
  • Tap button
  • MIDI mappable for other DJ software systems
  • Unit measures 9.8" width x 3.4" depth, and weighs under 3 lbs
