Numark CDN88 MP3
Released April, 2009
The Pros:Very cool looking deck, nice colors and attractive design. Controls are simple and easy to learn. Doesn't skip even when someone bumps the rack.
The Cons:Some quality control issues, need to thoroughly check the unit's functions right away. Beatkeeper is not as accurate or effective as the original non-mp3 "legacy" CDN88.

Jog wheels enable real-time scratching, and a key lock allows for shifting tempo without changing pitch in order to get a precise beat match. Beat matching can be automated with an Interlock system, and the Beatkeeper system visually represents the beat for quick reference. A total of 12 DSP effects are all directly accessible, and 4 pitch-control ranges allow for quick and precise pitch adjustments. Up to 3000 cue points can be saved to memory for long automated play with crossfading, and a 48-second Anti-Shock prevents skips.
