These pads are conveniently located just below the platter, giving you quick and easy access to your favourite features, such as Hot Cues and samples. They are also compatible with various pad modes and can be assigned to other functions, giving you even more control over your music. Whether you’re performing on a mixer with no pads or looking to enhance your DJ setup, the PLX-CRSS12’s Performance Pads will revolutionize your workflow.

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.
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.
