Never worry about needle skipping again when you use the PLX-CRSS12 in DVS mode with Serato DJ Pro or rekordbox. The tone-arm-free playback means artists can scratch a real analog record as vigorously as they like without fear of missing a beat.

Features of the Hybrid Turntable:

Eliminate Skipping in Digital Playback

    • The PLX-CRSS12’s tone-arm-free DVS control removes needle skipping in Digital Vinyl mode, no matter how hard users scratch.
    • The new MAGVEL CLAMP holds the record firmly in place, enabling it to directly control the digital music file, giving users the true feeling of vinyl without the tonearm.
    • When playing analog records, the experience will be just like using the popular PLX-1000.
    • Customizable to Suit Performer’s Needs
    • The MAGVEL CLAMP dial allows users to find the perfect “weight” setting. The amount of torque will be increased or decreased to make the record feel lighter or heavier without changing or adjusting slip mats or slip sheets.
    • Users can adjust the turntable’s torque level in the utility settings.
    • There are 3 deck-stopping speeds to choose from via a switch on the front of the unit.

Designed for Full Control

    • The PLX-CRSS12 combines classic turntable layout elements, with the addition of 4 built-in MIDI-mappable Performance Pads allowing users to select their preferred features. Located below the platter the pads conveniently fire off Hot Cues and samples quicker than ever. There’s native support for various pad modes (see below), and a dedicated button enables users to switch control from pads 1-4 to 5-8. Additionally, the MIDI mappable pads allow users to program each to selected features.
    • Native pad mode support
    • Serato DJ Pro: Hot Cue, Sampler, Stems, Scratch Bank, Roll, Saved Loop
      Rekordbox: Hot Cue, Sampler, Track Separation, Sample Scratch, Pad FX1, Beat Jump
    • The built-in OLED display allows performers to keep an eye on the tempo range and key when Step Pitching and, when users connect the PLX-CRSS12 via USB to a PC/Mac running DJ software, they can reference BPM, key, and deck number information. The display also gives users quick access to the utility settings.

High-quality sound reproduction of analog records, evolved from the PLX-1000

    • Let your audience enjoy your music the way it was intended to be heard. The PLX-CRSS12 has been carefully built to improve on the sound quality of the PLX-1000 professional DJ turntable, which is highly acclaimed for its accurate sound reproduction.
    • Switching power supply – A switching power supply is used to eliminate transformer power supply vibration and flux leakage, and unwanted noise is suppressed, resulting in high-resolution sound quality.
    • High-mass die-cast zinc – As with the PLX-1000, the upper part of the chassis is made of high-mass die-cast zinc and the lower part is made of 8 mm thick resin to optimize the chassis structure and vibration-damping materials.
    • Machined gold-plated RCA terminals – The RCA terminals are made of machined gold-plated parts like those on the PLX-1000, and the phono signal is directly transmitted through a stable connection with the plug to reproduce the sound of analog records with high-quality audio.

Replaceable MAGVEL CLAMP

    • Additional clamps are available to buy if users want to take their own set on the road, or if they need to replace a clamp that’s been lost. Users can store the MAGVEL CLAMP neatly in a dedicated area on top of the deck.

Robust and elegant design in matte black color

    • The PLX-CRSS12 has a matte black color scheme, with special coatings applied to the tone arm and other metal parts, plus carefully crafted details that give it a robust and elegant appearance.

Software Compatibility

    • The PLX-CRSS12 is compatible with Serato DJ Pro and rekordbox.
    • By connecting this unit to a PC/Mac with DJ software installed, and to a mixer that supports the DVS function of the respective DJ software, users can start playing in Digital Vinyl mode and use the Performance Pads.
