This is one of the DJResource DJ Topics © 2019 Pioneer DJ DMP-555 Downloads
is Pioneer's response to the demand of DJs to utilize digital audio
available from the Internet. In recognizing this, Pioneer is introducing a CDJ
player that's complemented with new software capable of CD ripping and managing
compressed audio files, such as MP3.
The DMP-555 is compatible with CD Audio and MP3 formats and will playback from
both CD and SD Card. Since these are capable of storing a huge number of MP3
tracks and loops, the DMP-555
allows DJs to enhance their sets and mixes with
the latest music from around the world.
Compatible with CDDA, CDR, CDRW and SD Card, the DMP-555 has a Dual Synchronous
Play function that plays back from both CD and SD Card sources. This allows
DJs to mix authorized MP3-format loops and samples stored on the SD Card with
the CD audio output, or to play any music files from CD.
Now, in the year 2010, I can say that the DMP-555 was a very brave attempt from Pioneer to make MP3 an accepted standard for playback. Pioneer was with the DMP-555 the very first to integrate an SD slot as input source. The problem was however, that the DJs where not ready yet to make the step to go digital yet.
and the CDJ-1000
MK2 and later the CDJ-1000
MK3 did some ground breaking work to offer a digital way of playing back their tracks instead of the usual vinyl. At the end of the first decade of the second millennium most DJs made the switch to CD and are now ready for Pioneers advanced version of the DMP-555 : Pioneers CDJ-2000

The sleek metallic finish of the DMP-555
stylishly encases many of the stunning
features established by Pioneer's CDJ Range of products, such as Seamless Loop,
BPM Sync and the Master Tempo control that can be used to slow down or speed
up audio without affecting pitch. The unit also includes a world-first: the
revolutionary Isolator feature that allows users to mute the low, mid or high
ranges of a track on either CD or SD Card.
When the SD Card is used for mixes, the DMP-555 effectively becomes a Loop
Sampler thanks to two ingenious new features. The SD Card Syncro Button will
match and lock SD Card BPM to CD play-out BPM, so that MP3 loops can be fired
on cue. The SD Card Mix out can be used for mixing MP3 audio with CD audio play-out,
ensuring that transitions and mixes play out smoothly.
The multi-language DJ Booth software bundled with the DMP-555 helps users manage
their digital music on PC. The application simulates a set-up with two Pioneer
CDJ players and a mixer, giving users the flexibility to mix loops and tracks
stored on PC.
Once the DMP-555 is connected to the PC via the supplied USB cable, it can
be used to control both virtual players in DJ Play and Create modes of the software,
further enhancing ease of use. DJ Booth also allows DJs to transfer tracks to
both SD Card and CD, and also includes access to online support at the click
of a button. DJ Booth will also be available as a separate Pioneer Pro DJ product,
aimed at the PC music enthusiasts.

with the latest music from around the world.
When the slim, compact and portable SD Card is used for mixes, the DMP-555
effectively becomes a sampler. This ground-breaking innovation is possible because
MP3 loops can be BPM synced to the CD output and then fired on cue. In addition,
the Master Tempo control can be used to slow down or speed up SD audio, without
the pitch being affected. CD ripping, loop editing and music file management
are simple operations with the bundled DJ Booth software. And because the application
simulates a set-up using two Pioneer CD players and a mixer, it's easy to master
the playback, mixing and editing functions in no time at all. It's even possible
to control the software from the DMP-555 itself, making DJ Booth the most innovative
and user-friendly application available to today's digital DJs.
The all new powerful, flexible and removable digital media. Up to 256 MB on

has safety guards around the power and eject buttons together with a locking feature.
The DMP-555 has a guard to prevent you from accidentally pressing the
eject button. The CD can also be locked for extra security.
Legato Link Conversion
For High Quality Sound the DMP-555 is
Equipped with Pioneer ?s wide range technology ?Legato Link Conversion,
the DMP-555 is capable of reproducing sound frequencies above 20kHz,
which are lost during normal CD-format playback. Not only does this give
great and natural sound reproduction but sounds closer to the original
Sound jumps or skipping is prevented by using a 16 second shock-proof
memory for normal CD play (minimum of 10 seconds if scratching and reading
wave data at the same time in Vinyl mode).
An oil-dampened floating suspension prevents sound skipping, even when the
player is subjected to impact during use or vibrations generated from
high volume music and low frequency bass.
The DMP-555 can read CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs as well as MP3 files from SD card.
Loading CD ?s without having to open doors or trays makes swapping discs
and selecting tracks that much faster. It also helps to keep dir and any
nasty substances out of the CD ?s working parts.
When the DMP-555
is used with the DJM-600, DJM-500,DJM-300 or DJM-300-S
mixer you can star the music by sliding the cross fader.By sliding the
fader back, it will return the DMP-555 back to the previously selected
Connecting two DMP-555 ?s with a standard 3.5mm mini-plug cable allows
one unit to be put on standby whilst the other plays. Relay Play automatically
starts the second player enabling them to play 'back to back' to give
you endless music play.
The DMP-555 is equipped with a switchable on/off digital output (phono)which
is great for studio use.
