New CD Recording Workstation Lets Musicians and DJs Easily Record Original Songs and Custom Mixes to CD
LOS ANGELES, July 17 /PRNewswire/ — For those who daydream of becoming jet-setting musicians, globe-trotting DJs, or the musical life of the party, but don’t think they have the equipment or technical savvy to create their own CDs, the Roland CDX-1 DiscLab has arrived. Not only is this the first tabletop CD workstation that can perform multi-track recording directly to inexpensive rewritable CD-RWs, but it also gives users the power to sample, sequence, and mix down their music to audio CDs. It’s never been easier to record original songs and custom mixes to CD — or remaster old vinyl records and cassette tapes — using one convenient, totally portable workstation.
What makes the CDX-1 DiscLab so easy? For one thing, it’s been designed from the ground up for easy understanding by a range of users: songwriters, aspiring groove music producers, DJs, and music enthusiasts of all types. Users simply plug in a microphone, a guitar, a turntable, or any other audio source — or pop in a sample CD — hit a few buttons and start to create songs, record samples and create custom mixes. Once the tracks and/or samples are recorded, sequenced and mixed using the built-in songwriting tools and effects, simply pop in an inexpensive CD-R and burn a professional quality CD.
Since the CDX-1 is portable, users can take it almost anywhere and record any time inspiration hits. So whether the CD is destined for A&R execs or a house party that night, the CDX-1 should be at the top of many musicians, DJs and music enthusiasts’ wish lists. The Roland CDX-1 DiscLab has a suggested list price of $1,495. Actual dealer price may vary.
