Announcing Denon MC7000 – Professional DJ Controller with Dual Audio Interface. Denon seems to be on a good run of form. The DJ Equipment Manufacturer (DEM) just released its 2nd major hardware in just a few of months. It looks like the DEM is looking to take over market share. The company is hot on the trail of its competitors. An old adage says ‘when 2 elephants fight, the grass suffers’, but the reverse is the case, as the competition amongst the top DEMs should inevitably lead to a crash in the prices of DJ equipment. Lets go into detail of this new Denon gear.
MC7000 is the professional DJ controller with 4-channel Serato DJ capability and dual USB connections. These two USB audio interfaces enable two DJs to play together (on their preferred DJ software) or ‘hand off’ in a truly seamless, uninterrupted manner. Coupled with Denon DJ’s legendary build quality and superior 24-bit audio reproduction, this is a no-compromise controller perfectly suited to both mobile and club DJs looking for the next evolution of Serato DJ controller. The MC7000 also includes the full version of Serato DJ, plus, 3 creative expansion packs (Pitch ‘n Time, Flip and Video), enabling DJ’s to empower their musical, remix and visual style – to the max!
The dual 6-inch platters have a touch-capacitive design with rotational LED displays, giving a DJ maximum feedback to optimize track manipulation performance in real time. The MC7000’s new, exclusive and dedicated Key Matching and Changing controls deliver an unprecedented ability to instantly and harmonically match musical keys, resulting in an enhanced audience and dancefloor experience. In addition, the MC7000 is Serato DVS-compatible, giving DJs the power to mix a program of digital music sources with the elegance and accuracy of legacy vinyl control. The unit’s comprehensive, multi-input mixer also provides access to line/phono inputs from both authentic analog (vinyl) and digital sources for a perfect blend of content and sound. This unit is priced at $999.00 compared to its predecessor MCX8000 which goes for $1,300.00
