Denon DN-HC4500

Denon’s first USB MIDI/ Audio interface designed exclusively for computer performance club and mobile DJs worldwide. This feature-packed professional PC/MAC compatible controller combines unmatched hardware performance with internal high-quality audio processing, offering low latency ASIO/OSX Core Audio support. The DN-HC4500 also offers the exclusive flexibility to control DENON’s optional BU4500 dual CD/MP3 player for simultaneous 4-player configuration. The controller is bundled and complimented with an LE Version of TRAKTOR, that o≠ers an array of amazing forward thinking features.

Internal 24-Bit Processing and USB Audio
Unlike most DJ midi controllers that are only USB bus powered, the DN-HC4500 encompasses its own internal power supply to achieve the highest electrical specifications, resulting in the best possible performance. It also features industry leading Burr Brown (a product of TI) 24-bit DAC processing for superior output audio fidelity. USB audio interface includes 2-channel stereo output pair, 44.1/48/96kHz sampling ranges and low latency ASIO/OSX core audio support.

BU4500 Drive Support
Sold separately and optional, the BU4500 dual CD/MP3 player allows DJs to continue playing from their CD collection while still controlling their favorite DJ software. The BU4500 can be used as a ”backup” system without having to rewire a thing in the case of computer failure. Select the Source button on either deck to switch off over to CD playback seamlessly. This combo system makes the DN-HC4500 the most powerful and flexible DJ hardware controller available. Owners of Denon DN-D4500s/DN-D4000s are welcome to enjoy all these benefits by purchasing the DN-HC4500 and upgrading their systems to be computer performance ready.

Multi Functional Touch Sensitive Jog Disc
The 71mm Jog disc is constructed with an ultra high-resolution pulse and touch sensor mechanism to accurately reproduce the most subtle or swift scratching movements made by the human hand. The Jog disc can also be mapped to perform other vital functions such as, pitch bending, scanning, file searching and dry/wet control for effects. Vibrant Tube Display with 2-line Character Text Support

The display offers two lines of character information to quickly navigate through files, crates, folders and confirms you loaded the correct file without having to look up at your monitor. A visual 32-position marker point indicator follows your hand movements at lighting speeds without drift. Other indicators include Looping, Hot Starts, BPM info, Elapsed/Remain Time, MP3/WAV file types, and other useable indicators.
