Key Info

The PLX-CRSS12 is a professional digital-analog hybrid turntable with brand-new features to help DJs take their performances to the next level.

Skip-free digital playback with advanced DVS control

Experience skip-free playback like never before with the Pioneer PLX-CRSS12 Hybrid Turntable. Utilizing a tone-arm-free system, this innovative turntable eliminates needle skipping during digital playback. Thanks to the new MAGVEL CLAMP technology, your records are firmly held in place, allowing for direct control of the digital music file. With the PLX-CRSS12, you'll enjoy the true feeling of vinyl without the need for a tone arm. Plus, when playing analog records, the experience is just like using the popular PLX-1000 deck.

MIDI-mappable performance pads - take your mixes to the next level

The PLX-CRSS12 features a classic turntable layout with a modern twist. One exciting addition is the four built-in MIDI-mappable performance pads. These pads are conveniently located just below the platter, allowing you to have quick and easy access to your favourite features. Whether you need to trigger Hot Cues or play samples, the Performance Pads make it easier than ever. This feature is particularly useful if you're using a mixer without pads. The pads have native support for various pad modes and can be customized through MIDI mapping to suit your specific needs. You can even use the performance pads with Serato Stems and separate vocal/instrumental tracks to make on-the-fly remixes.

Adjust the feel of your record with the Magvel Clamp

With the PLX-CRSS12, you have control over your performance. The dial on top of the Magvel Clamp allows you to quickly adjust the record's "weight" to your preference. Say goodbye to the hassle of changing slip mats or slip sheets. With this feature, you can effortlessly continue your performance and make adjustments on the fly.

High-end sound quality

Allow your audience to experience your music as it was intended to be heard. The PLX-CRSS12 is designed to deliver high-quality sound reproduction that surpasses its predecessor, the highly acclaimed PLX-1000 professional DJ turntable. Enjoy accurate sound reproduction and impress your listeners with exceptional audio fidelity.

Customisable torque

Tailor the turntable rotation torque level to your liking with ease. The PLX-CRSS12 offers three options in the utility settings: "High", "Low", and "Mid". Choose "High" for a quick startup when you press PLAY, "Low" for the traditional torque speed familiar to many DJs, or "Mid" for a balanced option between the two. This flexibility ensures that you can achieve the desired performance style and responsiveness.

Adjustable stopping speed

Have control over how your tracks or performance come to an end with the adjustable stopping speed feature. Using the switch on the front of the deck, you can select from three options: "Min", "Mid", and "Max". "Min" provides a sharp and immediate stop, while "Mid" offers a traditional stopping speed. If you are looking for a more gradual and dramatic finish, choose "Max" for the longest stopping speed.

OLED Display for visual feedback

The PLX-CRSS12 features a built-in OLED display that keeps you focused on your performance. You can easily keep an eye on the tempo range and key when Step Pitching. When connected to your PC or Mac via USB and using DJ software, you can reference essential information such as BPM, key, and deck number. This display also grants you quick access to utility settings, reducing the need to break concentration and look at other devices during your performance.
