The D4500 is a CD/MP3 player that's perfect if you're a mobile and club DJ who requires a simple workhorse with high reliability. The D4500 is the successor of Denon's award winning D4000 and offers many expanded features, particularly on the MP3 side.
Here's just a few of the new features
- Key Adjust
- Auto BPM Counter
- MP3 Seamless Looping with B-Trim Edit
- MP3 Hot Starts
- MP3 File Search System
- MP3 Frame Search
- CUE Stutter
- wider ±24/50/100% pitch ranges for audio CD’s
MP3 File Search System and CD TEXT
The in-built MP3 File Search System allows you to locate in seconds hundreds of MP3 tracks on a CD-R/RW by artist name, song title or folder. In addition, MP3 ID3 Tags and Audio CD Text are supported on a large, easy-to-read dot matrix fluorescent tube display.
With 1000 memo points on-board, the D4500 can store your Loops and Hot Starts on any audio CD track and recall them at a later time when that track is cued in either CD drive.
Cueing Accuracy and BPM Counter
Precision cueing to frame sound accuracy can be set quickly and easily using the inner 50mm jog wheel with the outer shuttle ring for user-adjustable quick jumps while scanning. The inner jog wheel also controls pitch bend, which is essential for synchronizing tracks for beat mixing – a DJ skill aided by the built-in automatic BPM counters.
Key Adjust and Shock-Proof Memory
The Key Adjust feature keeps vocals and music sounding true even when you adjust the speed of the track. With up to 100 seconds of anti-shock memory for MP3 and 20 seconds for audio CDs, your groove will not be interrupted by either sound or vibrations.
Relay Play with Adjustable Overlap
Background music no longer has to have silence between tracks. The unit can go straight into Play mode when it is powered up. Music can also be played alternately from two discs using Relay play, which will start the next track several seconds before the previous track finishes.
