The DN-S3700 Digital Media Turntable now features a MIDI Hybrid mode via a free firmware update. Current users and future owners of the DN-S3700 will be able to use various supported DVS applications (on either a PC or Mac) such as Serato Scratch Live for direct spinning platter control using Denon DJ''s built-in Relative mode timecode signal generator with the users'' DVS-supported sound card or Denon DVS-supported mixers such as the DN-X1600 and DN-X600.
This means that traditional CD timecode (and Flash drive) media is no longer required for Relative mode operation because this required tone is generated inside the unit''s DSP and outputs through the analog RCA connectors of the DN-S3700 during Hybrid mode. Various other surrounding keys and knobs are freely available to MIDI map as the user sees fit. Other firmware improvements include new Auto BPM detection engine, doubled Platter Resolution and position accuracy via a newly added preset.
The Denon DN-S3700, with the new MIDI Hybrid mode, is now shipping with an SRP of $1,099.99.
