Digital playback without skipping and enhanced DVS control

Experience skip-free playback like never before with the Pioneer PLX-CRSS12 Hybrid Turntable. The new MAGVEL CLAMP technology holds your records firmly in place, allowing for direct control of the digital music file. The tone-arm-free system eliminates needle skipping during digital playback, giving you the true feeling of vinyl without needing a tonearm. And when playing analogue records, the experience is just like using the popular PLX-1000 deck. Enjoy uninterrupted music and a seamless listening experience with the Pioneer PLX-CRSS12.

MIDI-mappable performance pads

If you're looking for a turntable that combines classic design with modern features, the PLX-CRSS12 might be just what you need. One exciting addition to this turntable is the four built-in MIDI-mappable performance pads. These pads are located just below the platter, making it easy to access your favourite features.

The pads have native support for various pad modes and can be customized through MIDI mapping to suit your specific needs. This feature is particularly useful if you're using a mixer without pads. Whether you need to trigger Hot Cues or play samples, the Performance Pads make it easier than ever. Plus, you can even use the performance pads with Serato Stems and separate vocal/instrumental tracks to make on-the-fly remixes.

Adjust the feel of your record with the Magvel Clamp

With the PLX-CRSS12, you can take control of your performance. The top dial of the Magvel Clamp lets you quickly adjust the record's weight to your liking, meaning no more hassle with changing slipmats or slip sheets. With this feature, you can effortlessly continue your performance and make adjustments on the fly. Try it out and see the difference it can make in your next show!

High-end sound quality

When it comes to sharing your music, it's important to make sure your audience hears it as you intended. The PLX-CRSS12 turntable is the perfect tool for delivering high-quality sound reproduction that surpasses its predecessor, the PLX-1000. With this turntable, you can enjoy accurate sound reproduction and impress your listeners with exceptional audio fidelity. Trust in the PLX-CRSS12 to elevate your music to the next level.

Customisable torque

Achieve your desired performance style and responsiveness with ease by tailoring the turntable rotation torque level to your liking. The PLX-CRSS12 offers three options in the utility settings: "High", "Low", and "Mid". Choose "High" for a quick startup when you press PLAY, "Low" for the traditional torque speed familiar to many DJs, or "Mid" for a balanced option between the two. With this flexibility, you can be confident in achieving the perfect performance every time.

OLED Display for visual feedback

When using the PLX-CRSS12, it's important to take advantage of its built-in OLED display. This feature allows you to focus on your performance by easily monitoring the tempo range and key when Step Pitching. Plus, when connected to your PC or Mac via USB and using DJ software, you can reference vital information such as BPM, key, and deck number. With this display, you'll have quick access to utility settings, reducing the need to break concentration and look at other devices during your performance.
