PVDJ, a division of Peavey Electronics Corporation, Winter NAMM Expo booth #5740, proudly introduces the new Grabber sampling module, which allows DJs to automatically create loops. This unit “grabs” a loop of audio with a single touch of a button.
The PVDJ Grabber revolutionizes sampling technology by allowing one-button-push looping with automatic BPM detection and beat position detection. While most samplers require start- and end-point editing, the Grabber automatically creates a perfect loop using its built-in BPM counter, and automatically syncs the loop to your main mix tempo. The Grabber features separate buttons for 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16-beat loops. This very affordable module also includes several features for creative mixing, including a jog wheel for phasing effects and other fine adjustments and a selector switch that enables reverse play.
The Grabber will be available in February 2004 from Authorized PVDJ Dealers.
