Vestax PDX-3000 Turntable W/MIDI/Adjustable Torque
Do not be deceived of the design. It may look the same as the PDX series from the past, but nothing comparable. With its new features, the PDX-3000 gives you absolute control over the vinyl. In addition of the traditional pitch control and ultra pitch, a torque simulator system is built in to adjust the motors torque power to the DJs preference, allowing you to scratch but also mix with the PDX-3000 like no other turntable before!
The PDX-3000(*1) is also the world's first turntable to have MIDI connection, which enables external MIDI devices to control the pitch. Stability is a known virtue of the PDX series, and is the same for the PDX-3000. Vestax's original Anti Skipping Tone Arm System (A.S.T.S) provides sufficient performance for DJs who juggle and scratch. For many DJs familiar to straight arm Djing, the PDX-3000 is your perfect choice.Features:
- The new torque simulator system enables DJs to adjust the rotation torque of the motor to their preference. This changes the characteristic of the pitch control, the touch of when slowing down the platter with your finger and when twisting forward with the spindle, especially when mixing.
- Break control to adjust the stopping speed of the platter
- The pitch control fader is slightly heavier than the previous PDX series for fine adjustment and advanced accuracy. The quartz lock button is turned off when the power is turned on.
- Standard +/-10% pitch control and +/-50% pitch control.
- Vestax's original DC direct drive motor obeys accurately to the electric signals sent to the circuit. The platter is screwed down to the spindle to prevent it from slipping toward the rotation direction.
- The MIDI input connection on the PDX-3000mix combine's analog with digital, allowing external MIDI devices to control the rotation speed and sparking DJs with new ideas.
