The Numark CDN88 MP3 is a higher end dual-deck CD player built for professional DJs. It features a rack-mount design for permanent installation and a wide variety of digital effects. The player handles regular CDs and CD-Rs as well as MP3 CDs, and dedicates a two-line text display for showing MP3 tags. Jog wheels enable real-time scratching, and a key lock allows for shifting tempo without changing pitch in order to get a precise beat match. Beat matching can be automated with an Interlock system, and the Beatkeeper system visually represents the beat for quick reference. A total of 12 DSP effects are all directly accessible, and 4 pitch-control ranges allow for quick and precise pitch adjustments. Up to 3000 cue points can be saved to memory for long automated play with crossfading, and a 48-second Anti-Shock prevents skips.
