Cortex HDTT-5000 Features:

Intelligent Music Database Management

The HDTT-5000's database management system allows the user to search through a massive library of music within seconds.

Due to Apple limitations, the iPod® iTouch, iPhone & Mac formatted Classics are not compatible with Cortex products.

PC-Based Database Creation

Create database files at a gig via the HDTT unit or the PC application (downloadable from the Cortex website) on a home computer with lightning fast speed.

Waveform Display Mode

Via the Cortex database software, available FREE from the Cortex website, HDC-1000 users will be able to create a waveform of each song on their USB storage device which can then be optionally selected to be displayed on the HDTT-5000's LCD screen.

Keyboard Support

Quickly find that hot new track in a massive library of music with just a few taps of a USB-compatible keyboard.

File Explorer Mode

Perfect for DJs that have their own organizational system already in place. Browse through files and directories exactly as they exist on the storage device.

Search Options

Users can search the same way that they would using an iPod ® or similar portable music player through a number of browsing options, including Search by Artist, Song Title, Album, and Genre.

String Search

Easily search by a certain word or phrase to find tracks, even if you're unsure of the name. When the user inputs a keyword, it will search all Artists, Titles, Albums, and Genres, and show how many of each that it found.

CD/DVD Audio and Data Playback

No need to abandon your CD collection, the HDTT-5000 can play user-created CD-Rs, DVD-Rs and audio CDs with any compatible USB CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.

Variable Pitch Slider (+/- 4, 8, 16, 24%) and Ultra-precise Pitch Control

Precisely adjust the tempo of your mixes with a wide range of pitch options and ultra precise pitch in increments of 0.05% (in 4 and 8 pitch mode).

Performance Protection

Every Cortex HDTT unit features exclusive protection from accidental shutdown while playing. Simply press and hold the power button for more than 2 seconds to turn the unit off.

Firmware Upgradeable

Easily download new internal software from the Cortex website at

VBR & CBR File Support

The HDTT-5000 can play all your MP3's; CBR or VBR at any bitrate up to 320kbps.

Multi-language Support

The HDTT-5000 supports multiple languages including English, French, and Spanish.

Ultra-fast Instant Start

From Cue to Start, get into the mix with no delay.

Enhanced Features

Efficient Sampling

Samples can be set and stored in any of 4 banks with the simple touch of a button. Samples can be trimmed and edited with the graphical user interface, and the samples pitch can be altered.

DSP Effects

The effects module gives the user an array of 12 effects (including Filter, Flanger, Echo, Delay, Auto-Pan and more) to choose from as well as truly comprehensive parameter setting capabilities. The HDTT-5000 allows users to edit EACH parameter in real time offering a more in-depth ability to modify the sound while still preserving the simplicity of the preset.

Comprehensive Realtime Looping

Up to 4 loops can be programmed with a loop-editing feature that allows points to be imported from saved hot cue points. Unlike a traditional CD player, the loops can be edited easily using the HDTT-5000's graphical user interface, which allows the loop to be trimmed until it sounds perfect. Loops may be beat synced as well - user has option of selecting 1/2/4/8/16 beat loops, as well as user-selectable time frames.

Cue Point Management

Cue points can be set like a normal CD player, so that the DJ can return to a certain time in the track just by pressing a button. The HDTT-5000 unit allows for 4 hot cue points, allowing the user to advance to a certain point in a song without any pause in playback, and can be used along with loops for live remixing.

Main Playback Screen

The backlit graphical LCD playback screens display info on any track in the catalog, showing everything from the essentials such as artist, track title, pitch, time elapsed/remaining to detailed information including file format (MP3or WAV), genre, and track length. Additionally, the HDTT-5000 offers a waveform view, which helps the club DJ "see" where the beat comes in, and at what point to segue into the next track playing.

Touch-Sensitive Digital Turntable Platter

Get the sound and feel of vinyl while preserving the convenience of digital formats. The HDTT-5000's large Touch Sensitive platter allows you to cue or scratch your track while rotating the wheel in either direction.

Auto-BPM Counter

Automatically track your song's beats per minute.

Master Tempo

Master Tempo locks in the pitch of the track, even when you change the speed up or down, ensuring no noticeable difference in how the vocals or instruments sound.

Key Adjust

Key adjust allows users to adjust the key of a track without changing speed

Instant Reverse

Instant Reverse is controlled by merely pressing a button on the face of the HDTT unit with no loss of tempo or pitch.

Master/Slave Link

Easily link two Cortex HDTT units together to access one USB compatible storage device for dual turntable performance.

Playlist Editing

The playlist editor allows users to save, load, and edit their own playlists. This is advantageous for unattended playback, or for mobile entertainers who have certain playlists in place for standard events.

Storage Device Selection

Take that new digital promo or just-finished song from your iPod or USB memory flash drive and play it tonight! With 5 USB ports (and support for a total of up to 4 devices, 1 per port or 4 to a USB hub), the HDTT's device selection option allows users to connect and recognize multiple storage devices, offering the flexibility to access a variety of separate music databases simultaneously.
