The basic thought behind the product was that to make the CDX1 feels as close
as it gets to working with a record while using a CD. The CDX1 has several modes for scratching and looping, as well as beat-synched
digital effects. There is extensive cue store/recall with multiple sets for
The CDX1 has a fast, slot-load CD transport, and music can continue
playing from the internal buffer after the CD is ejected. The CDX1 is MP3 compatible,
and shows MP3 song titles in its display. The unit has a display that allows the user to see wave data and cue points
as they approach.
A built in beatkeeper gives accurate and instant BPM readouts.
The built in processor allows creativity to be maximized. Key Lock allows users
to change pitch +/- 100% yet still maintain the current key. Stutter allows
the user to jump around the music instantly and still control the music via
the vinyl record. Cue point storage allows the user to pop in a CD and jump
instantly to stored points and not spend time cuing up. MIDI make this unit
fully controllable in a studio environment.
Combined these features make the
Numark CDX1 the ultimate DJ tool for the ultimate DJ experience!

The Numark CDX-1
is styles on Numarks flagship TTX1 Turntable to give you the authentic
turntable feel that you're used to when using an analogue turntable. The CDX1
has a full sized 12" Platter that is able to rotate at 33 AND 45 RPM. The
torque is equal to the TTX1 and measures 4.5kg/cm using a direct driven engine
The record that
lays on the Platter can be switched by another record when you drill just 2
holes in it. A slipmat is used to give you the exact Vinyl-feel. The CDX is as rugged and durable as the TTX turntable. All
features are added that you would expect in a high quality turntable to make
the user experience almost identical to the TTX.
The latest in digital technology
is also added to make this modern CD players so much fun. The 48 seconds Shock
Memory make sure that skipping of a tracks is nearly impossible. The CDX uses a CD Slot-In loading system so no trays or covers
needs to be opened to insert a disc. This prevents also dust from getting into
The CDX has offcourse a lever for Forward/Reverse so the direction in
which that track is playing can be reversed. Also the running speed of
the platter can be set from No Rotations, 33 RPM and 45 RPM to match the
feeling that you desire.
Included effect that are reachable by the effect buttons
are : Sonar, Slide, Filter, Echo and Chop
. All these
effects can have the parameter match the BPM of the current track.
Loop & Stutter
With the press of a simple button you can let the CDX make a loop,
or start the loop over again. The CDX also has the possibility
to cut the loop in parts (1/4, 1/2, 3/4 measure) just like you are used
to doing this with effects.
comes very close to Pioneers
CUE function and works faster that the CDX's CUE function. To use a audio
piece as sampler this is a good feature.
With the Smart Loop
you own made loop
(using Loop In and Loop Out) will be automatically quantisized to an accurate
loop. With the + and - button this loop can be halfend or doubled in length.
VFD Matrix Display
With this extremely bright display
the CDX visualizes
the important information on a clear way. A graphical bar shows you the
Playing Address so you know exactly where you are in the current track. This display also shows you Time Information,
MP3 Song Title
and the Function Mode
Next to the display is the Pitch Fader
with which you can control the playing speed of the CDX1 and has a maximum
scale of +/- 100%. Also a Pitch Lock
makes sure that
the Key of the tracks is kept to 0% position while changing the speed
(by Pitch Fader or Pitch bending) can be changed. The possible pitch ranges that can be selected are 6%,
12%, 25% and 100%.

This is truly the closest thing I have felt to a real turntable. If you
normally use the Numark TTX's it feels even closer. If you scratch alot
I suggest putting a better slipmat, and lighter weight record in place of the stock setup.
Also if you use the spindle (the pin that fits in
the hole on the record) to mix when using a turntable, you could
actually accidently unscrew the spindle when trying to adjust a mix
with this unit. I suggest you get used to mixing with the pitch
control, or carressing the platter. Numark has really shined throught
the competitors with this one.
Enjoy!!! Check out a full Numark CDX review here
