Intelligent Music Database Management
The Cortex HDTT-5000 has a database management system that allows DJs to search through massive music libraries in seconds.
PC-Based Database Creation
Create database files at a gig via the HDTT unit or the PC application (downloadable from the Cortex website) on a home computer with lightning fast speed.
Waveform Display Mode
Via the Cortex database software, available free from the Cortex website, you can create a waveform of each song on your USB storage devices that can then be optionally selected to be displayed on the HDTT-5000's LCD screen.
Quickly find that hot new track in a massive library of music with just a few taps of a USB-compatible keyboard.
File Explorer Mode
Perfect for DJs who have their own organizational system already in place. Browse through files and directories exactly as they exist on your storage device.
Users can search the same way that they would using an iPod or similar portable music player through a number of browsing options including search by artist, song title, album, and genre.
Easily search by a certain word or phrase to find tracks, even if you're unsure of the name. When the user inputs a keyword, it will search all artists, titles, albums, and genres, and show how many of each that it found.
CD/DVD Audio and Data Playback
No need to abandon your CD collection, the HDTT-5000 can play user-created CDRs, DVD-Rs and audio CDs with any compatible USB CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Variable Pitch Slider (±4, 8, 16, 24%) and Ultraprecise Pitch Control
Precisely adjust the tempo of your mixes with a wide range of pitch options and ultraprecise pitch in increments of 0.05% (in 4- and 8-pitch mode).
Every Cortex HDTT unit features exclusive protection from accidental shutdown while playing. Simply press and hold the power button for more than 2 seconds to turn the unit off.
Easily download new internal software from the Cortex website.
VBR & CBR File Support
The HDTT-5000 can play all your MP3s; CBR or VBR at any bit rate up to 320kbps.
The HDTT-5000 supports multiple languages including English, French, and Spanish.
Ultrafast Instant Start
From Cue to Start, get into the mix with no delay.
Samples can be set and stored in any of 4 banks with the simple touch of a button. Samples can be trimmed and edited with the graphical user interface, and the samples pitch can be altered.
The effects module gives the user an array of 12 effects (including Filter, Flanger, Echo, Delay, Auto-Pan, and more) to choose from as well as truly comprehensive parameter setting capabilities. The HDTT-5000 allows users to edit each parameter in real time offering a more in-depth ability to modify the sound while still preserving the simplicity of the preset.
Comprehensive Realtime Looping
Up to 4 loops can be programmed with a loop-editing feature that allows points to be imported from saved hot cue points. Unlike a traditional CD player, the loops can be edited easily using the HDTT-5000's graphical user interface, which allows the loop to be trimmed until it sounds perfect. Loops may be beat sync'ed as well—the user has the option of selecting 1/2/4/8/16 beat loops, as well as user-selectable time frames.
Cue Point Management
Cue points can be set like a normal CD player, so that the DJ can return to a certain time in the track just by pressing a button. The HDTT-5000 unit allows for 4 hot cue points, allowing the user to advance to a certain point in a song without any pause in playback, and can be used along with loops for live remixing.
Main Playback Screen
The backlit graphical LCD playback screens display info on any track in the catalog, showing everything from the essentials such as artist, track title, pitch, time elapsed/remaining to detailed information including file format (MP3 or WAV), genre, and track length. Additionally, the HDTT-5000 offers a waveform view that helps the club DJ see where the beat comes in and at what point to segue into the next track playing.
Touch-Sensitive Digital Turntable Platter
Get the sound and feel of vinyl while preserving the convenience of digital formats. The HDTT-5000's large, touch-sensitive platter allows you to cue or scratch your track while rotating the wheel in either direction.
Automatically track your song's beats per minute.
Master Tempo locks in the pitch of the track, even when you change the speed up or down, ensuring no noticeable difference in how the vocals or instruments sound.
Key Adjust allows users to adjust the key of a track without changing speed.
Instant Reverse is controlled by merely pressing a button on the face of the HDTT unit with no loss of tempo or pitch.
Easily link 2 Cortex HDTT units together to access one USB-compatible storage device for dual turntable performance.
The playlist editor allows users to save, load, and edit their own playlists. This is advantageous for unattended playback or for mobile entertainers who have certain playlists in place for standard events.
Storage Device Selection
Take that new digital promo or just-finished song from your iPod or USB memory flash drive and play it tonight! With 5 USB ports (and support for a total of up to 4 devices, one per port or 4 to a USB hub), the HDTT's device selection option allows users to connect and recognize multiple storage devices, offering the flexibility to access a variety of separate music databases simultaneously.
