Denon Launches First Serato ITCH Controller

News Image
Boasting the same form factor as Denon's famous twin CD controllers for mobile DJs, the new Denon DN-HC5000 (pictured) is the world's first professional controller for Serato ITCH.

The DN-HC5000 provides the same control and performance capabilities as the company’s long time market leading twin DJCD systems, with dedicated hardware control of Serato's leading DJ software for digital music files.
The DN-HC5000 is a turnkey digital DJ system; an integrated hardware / software solution, designed to give mobile DJs ultimate control of MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF digital music libraries. Connection to a PC or Mac with a single USB cable, provides full control of digital music files from the included Serato ITCH software which is quickly and easily installed.
The control layout of the DN-HC5000S is immediately familiar to anyone who has ever used Denon’s twin DJCD controllers. Utilising Serato’s HIDI technology for superior speed, accuracy and communication between software and hardware components, the DN-HC5000 acts as a USB 2.0 MIDI controller with 24-bit Internal processing, 24-bit digital analogue conversion on the audio outputs, and USB audio. Integrated ‘one to one’ hardware-to-software mapping provides instant control and minimum setup time. Analogue audio outputs for each deck enables the DN-HC5000 to connect and configure to any mixer. The unit can also connect to and control Denon’s BU4500 Dual CD/MP3 player, additionally providing playback of tracks not yet stored in file libraries.
The extensive features of the DN-HC5000 are intuitively accessed using the two multi-functional touch sensitive jog discs, tactile rubber controls, and vibrant FL tube and text displays. System features include interoperability with scratch live crates, loops and cue points, support for iTunes, auto tempo matching and beat sync, optimal gain and BPM calculation, Serato’s colour waveforms, set and store cue-points, manual and auto loop activation, fader start with compatible mixers, input and mix recording capability, and music library management tools for backup and restore.
Minimum system requirements for Mac are Intel 1.6GHz processor or better, 1GB RAM, OSX10.4.11 or higher; and for PC, Intel Pentium 4 mobile 2GHz processor or better, 1GB RAM, and Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit OS.
Commenting on the launch of the DN-H5000, Denon DJ Europe Product Marketing Manager, David Morbey, stated: "The DN-H5000 brings the power and versatility of digital music files to the mobile DJ sector in an instantly familiar product form.
"This makes transition from CD based mobile systems to digital file operation simple. And with compatibility with the Denon BU4500 twin CD deck, there is support for DJ’s who have not digitised all their music.
"All of this adds up to a powerful, fully professional upgrade path for mobile operators and fixed installations."
