Auto Mix Play
This revolutionary function automatically enables two tracks to be mixed together seamlessly at the push of a button! Pioneer's original search system measures the tracks' BPM and beat timing then automatically corrects the tempos to the designated BPM, matches the beats and cross fades creating a flawless, smooth mix - even for tracks on a single disc that have different tempos.

Three Playback Modes
Bullet Arrow Track Mode: Mixed playback alternating between tracks from disc A and disc B.
Bullet Arrow Disc Mode: Mixed playback of track on a single disc in numerical order.
Bullet Arrow Program Mode: Mixed playback of tracks (on either or both discs) in any pre-designated order.

Mix Mode Select
The user can pre select any one of a choice of four mix patterns or let the CMX-5000 automatically determine the most effective mix mode. The most familiar techniques in mixing, are of course the 'cut in' and the 'cross mix' but if these mixes are not compatible with the music the CMX5000 will select a more appropriate mix. While a house beat is playing and a garage track is lined up to be mixed in, the CMX5000 will select the most compatible mix mode from Cross Fade, Cut, Echo or Zip effect.

Adjustable Mix Time
Bullet Arrow Short Time Change: Mixes tracks at fixed 'short' time intervals.
Bullet Arrow Instant Change: Instantly mixes into the next track at the push of a button.

Auto Mix function
This is one of the new options and can be used in the set when so desired. It gives greater flexibility and freedom to the DJ, thus allowing the DJ to concentrate on other elements of the set. The sheer versatility and quality of the product extends the appeal of the CMX-5000 from super clubs to mini clubs, from small music bars to mobile DJs. The CMX-5000 gains all the excellent technical specification and sound quality of a world beating twin CD system. The mini club can use the Auto Mix function to warm up the crowd before the night really starts. The music bar can recreate that club vibe at the touch of a button. The mobile DJ can divert his attention to other things and have the confidence that the mix will go on!

Legato Link Conversion
The CMX-5000 is capable of reproducing sound frequencies above 20kHz (which are lost during normal CD-format playback). Resulting in excellent sound reproduction.

The CMX-5000 boasts unbeatable vibration-resistant characteristics. Sound jumps are prevented with the double protection of an 8-second vibration proof memory and a cleverly engineered vibration-proof construction.

Slot In CD
Thanks to this system, swapping discs is smooth yet rapid. No more worries about damaged disc trays.
