Flexible Audio Format Playback
As well as playback of traditional audio compact discs, the MEP-7000 supports MP3/AAC/WAV2/AIFF2 stored in USB memory devices, hard disc drive (HDD), CD-R/RW and DVD±R/RW, allowing for easy playback of existing music libraries and new digital downloads.
4.3-Inch Color LCD & Intelligent Graphical User Interface
In addition to the high-resolution 4.3-inch color LCD panel, an intelligent graphic user interface and rotary selector enables rapid track search through large collections of digital audio files. A play list function also speeds the track selection process for recalling frequently played songs.
DJS Auto Mix Function
An auto mix function automatically mixes playback of the tracks registered on the play list in four modes such as ECHO or ZIP. Audio is seamlessly beat matched and mixed on the fly.
The MEP-7000 includes Pioneer’s DJS all-in-one DJ software application for playback from a Windows based computer (PC not included). When the system is connected to the DJS, no mouse or keyboard is required for navigation and DJ performance. The MEP-7000 also supports control of other software, such as SERATO Scratch LIVE4, without the need of the control discs. It can also act as a full MIDI controller for any MIDI-compatible PC application.
Scratch Jog Effect and Digital Jog Break
In addition to traditional scratching, the MEP-7000 also features two patterns of Scratch Jog Effects – BUBBLE5 and TRANS5. Three Digital Jog Break effects freely control the audio effects according to the rotation of the jog dial—JET6 / ROLL6 / WAH6—broadening the scope of any DJ performance.
Bright Organic Electroluminescence (OEL) Display
Two high-visibility OEL displays provide outstanding visibility for the pitch, playback time and position information. Together with its main 4.3-inch color LCD, the OEL display ensures smooth DJ play regardless of lighting conditions.
