Product Description


If you need a audio player and mixer that will do everything for you, than look no further than the Encore 2000. It brings a Dual CD/MP3 Player and 2-Channel Audio Mixer and MIDI controller to the table. Bundled with the Virtual DJ LE software, you will be able to run your setups right from the computer with the MIDI controller. With XLR outputs, the Encore 2000 will be ready to connect to power speakers or an amplifier right out of the box. Keep track of all your settings with the large bright LCD display that shows: the track name, elapsed, remaining, and total time, auto BPM, folder number, and pitch.

The audio player will play MP3s, CDs/CD-R discs, or MP3s right from a USB stick with an instant start feature. With the Quick MP3/CD recognition and auxiliary input, your MP3s will be recognized on the fly with no delay and will sound great coming out of any MP3 player or satellite radio. There is also 1 microphone input and 2 USB inputs so you can add some of your own vocals to the music from your collection.

The scratch pads are touch sensitive so you can expect precision mixing all night. With relay playback and seamless loop you can throw out your music in whatever way you want and switch between tracks, decks, or CDs all night. The Encore 2000 also includes a MP3 cradle that mounts just above the unit's auxiliary mini jack input. This will make it easy for DJ's to play tracks from their favorite MP3 player.
