Stanton C.324

Packing all of the benefits of our best-selling C.314 plus an abundance of upgraded features, the new C.324 is a must-have for any true CD DJ. This tabletop, slot-loading CD player is designed for MP3 DJs who want to scratch CDs like vinyl, and has everything needed for ultimate performance. With specialties such as MP3 playback with onboard file and folder browsing, onboard sequencer for drum machine style performances, 7 onboard digital effects, and a sleek slot drive, we've taken everything about the C.324 to the next level... except the price tag.

REAL-TIME SAMPLE/LOOP SEQUENCING

The C.324 has added real time trigger pads that offer real-time sample / loop sequencing. This means that trigger patterns can now be recorded in real time and looped instantaneously. Drum patterns and loops can be manually resequenced and then looped to bring a completely new twist to live DJ remixing. This functionality is usually only achieved on drum machines. Using the C.324 sequences can be created in seconds compared to minutes using drum machines.

BEAT SYNCHRONIZED SAMPLES AND LOOPS

The C.324 can record Loops and Samples, with the length determined by the Time setting. This new feature makes it easy to set up perfect seamless loops. The C.324 also allows for the creation of beat synchronized loops based off of the current song's BPM. This means that a perfectly timed seamless loop can be set on-the-fly with one button press. Once a beat synchronized loop has been set it can be trimmed or expanded in real time by beat increment. By trimming the beat, a one bar loop can be turned into a 1/2 bar loop, 1/4 note or 1/8th note. Smaller loops can be expanded in the same fashion.

SLOT LOADING MECHANISM

The C.324 has a slot loading CD mechanism with LED for quick loading of CDs into the unit in low light situations.

Stanton C.324 Reviews
DJ Smiley/Dave Leal

Stanton C 324 Absolutely love them. I bang them around from club to club, they are definitely built to last. (recession friendly) it can do what the highest brand cd player can do and its a much more bang for your buck. Definitely club, studio, ready. With its easy to use design compact-with all of its various controls and features located directly on top of THIS Bad boy.

Miss Match

DJ Miss MatchI always get a bit excited when I head to a club to see they have Stanton C.324's set up as then I feel like I am just mucking around at home and can show-off my knowledge to some extent to the somewhat 'greener Stanton DJ's'. One thing in particular that I like about these CDJ's is the FX. A little trick I do is when using the Trans Effect - you can change the X-knob and Y-knob of each effects to create your own unique sets of effects, pretty cool...just be aware though that you have to manually set the X and Y values each time. I also find it really easy to create my loops & loop patterns on this CDJ, the buttons & layout are easy to use & follow.
