The Cortex HDTT-5000 has been designed & engineered to provide digital music playback and manipulation features demanded by professional users. The HDTT-5000 is designed to liberate DJs from the issues associated with PC-based solutions, by eliminating the need for a computer during performance. The HDTT-5000 also offers superior portability and flexibility over that of a typical PC. The extra large jog wheel is unique to HDTT-5000 as it provides highly precise control for a variety of functions. With the Jog Wheel, the user can search, pitch bend or even scratch just as if it were a vinyl turntable! As well, this can provide an extremely powerful navigation tool for searching menus, changing parameters and selecting music on your hard drive. High precision 100mm slide potentiometer for accurate adjustment of speed. 0.05% pitch precision In order to provide more precise pitch adjustment, the unit is able to advance in increments of 0.05%. This aids in beatmatching between two musical programs, with much finer pitch resolution than can be found on most conventional professional CD players. Multiple pitch ranges With pitch ranges of 4, 8, 16, and 24%, the pitch controls minimum and maximum values can be altered to augment or reduce the amount of pitch adjustment to a musical program. Pitch ON/OFF By pressing the PITCH + and PITCH - buttons simultaneously, this toggles whether or not the unit will respond to changes via the PITCH CONTROL slide. The Pitch ON/OFF feature also functions as a pitch reset, when it is used to turn the pitch OFF. The backlit 192x128 graphical LCD screen shows a variety of information, including track titles, times, pitch, setup options, waveforms, hot starts, loops and search parameters. This display allows more extensive visualization of parameters than a conventional CD player. The HDTT-5000 provides a wealth of effect choices for whatever style of DJ you are. Under the hood, the HDTT-5000 provides two effects groups, each having a wide variety of creative uses. Group one consists of creative remix effects such as filter, echo, flange, pan and a sampler. Group two consists of reverse, scratch, master tempo and key adjust. Any effect from group one can be combined with group two to provide a wealth of remix options for the creative DJ. The HDTT-5000 allows you to set and store up to 4 different Hot Cue CUE POINTS using buttons 1-4, as well as setting a traditional cue point with the CUE button. As your music is playing, if you would like it to jump to one of your set CUE POINTS, simply press that individual CUE button and the music will jump instantly. This allows the DJ to either stutter cue or even re-sequence the program material in a creative fashion. All CUE POINTS are automaticly stored on your hard drive when you eject it.
For further creative options, the HDTT-5000 provides for seamless loops for the DJ to use at any time. Loop In and Out points can be edited on the fly, with no limit in time, length or position. Up to four loops can be stored per song. The HDTT-5000 offers an unparalled level of connectivity with all driverless USB devices. The Cortex line of products are the first to offer the ability to manipulate music stored on USB devices such as hard drives, flash memory, optical drives, and personal music players, regardless of platform. Through this innovation, DJs are able to consolidate the amount of equipment and music needed during a performance. Even more USB devices can be connected with the use of a compatible USB hub.
Cross-Platform USB Connectivity
CD Audio support
Despite the fact that a vast majority of people have access to USB storage devices or portable music players, the Cortex HDTT-5000 supports the playback of CD Audio discs through a compatible USB external CDROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, or DVD-RW drive. This is particularly useful for DJs making a gradual migration, or for playing CDs provided by clients. Note that both sides can share one optical drive, but only one track can be played at a time. For dual-deck CD functionality, simply connect two USB optical drives.
Backlit LCD Display
DSP Effects Processor
The entire line of Cortex Digital Music Players allows for the management of music collections via a database-driven system. Using this method, the database can be queried based on a number of different criteria. This allows DJs to search by artist, title, genre, album, or search string. Using this method allows the DJ to find a specific music selection within seconds. The database is saved to the storage device the music is being drawn from, so that it can be used with any Cortex unit, whether its in your personal rig or at a club! Cue Points that have been memorized using the HDTT-5000 are also stored along with the database information on the active storage device. Once a Cue Point has been stored, DJs have the ability to recall it each time that track is loaded. The HDTT-5000 supports iPod Playlists, which can be created using Apple iTunes. When there are iPod Playlists available to be loaded, a menu option will appear in the main Search Options menu. With the HDTT-5000, you dont need to worry about having a storage device for each unit. Through the Master/Slave device operation, you can share one mass storage device across two units. As well, audio output for both units is located on the rear of your Master unit, keeping cable clutter to a minimum!

HDTT-5000 Quickstart Guide Additional Information
When using writable storage devices, such as hard drives, and harddrive-based music players (iPod, Zen), certain maintenance might be required. Because the Cortex units use streaming technology to manipulate more than one music file from one device simultaneously, hard drives and hard-drive based units need to be defragmented regularly to ensure the integrity of the streamed files. Fragmentation refers to the condition of a disk in which files are divided into pieces scattered around the disk. Fragmentation occurs naturally when you use a disk frequently, creating, deleting, and modifying files. At some point, the operating system needs to store parts of a file in noncontiguous clusters. This is entirely invisible to users, but it can slow down the speed at which data is accessed because the disk drive must search through different parts of the disk to put together a single file. Maintaining these storage devices must be done via your computer, and should be performed whenever there has been a substantial change to your music library (adding/deleting music). Note that failure to maintain your storage devices might result in delayed access times and glitchy audio playback. With Windows XP based machines First, connect the storage device that you wish to defragment. If you are connecting a hard-drive based music player, such as an Apple iPod or Microsoft Zune, make sure to exit any applications that may be launched on connection. To load Disk Defragmenter, go to the Start menu, and find Disk Defragmenter under Accessories/System Tools.
Maintaining Storage Devices
To clean the HDTT-5000, use only a dry soft cloth and/or compressed air. If the unit is soiled with stubborn dirt, we suggest using a 2:1 solution of distilled water and 30% isopropyl alcohol. Avoid using harsh cleaning chemicals such as benzene, paint thinner, bleach, or hydrochloric acid, which will damage the unit.
Cleaning the Unit
For optimum performance, the temperature of the operating environment should be between +5 C to +35 C (+41 F - +95 F). Failure to maintain proper operating temperature may result in difficulty reading the LCD display, thermal overload, or system-wide instability. Avoid exposing the unit to direct sunlight.
When placing the unit in an installation, make sure that it is placed on a stable surface, as far away from vibrations as possible. Even though the Cortex is impervious to vibration, the storage devices (specifically hard drive based ones) that are designed to be used in conjunction with it are typically not. Also be sure not to place or use the player on heat generating sources, such as amplifiers or near spotlights.
4. Power Cord Connector This connector is used to connect the power cord to your HDTT-5000. Note that the power supply automaticaly switches as long as you have a compatible power cable, you will be able to use your HDTT-5000 in any region regardless of power (USA, UK, EURO, ETC) 5. Chain Link Ports These ports are used to connect HDTT-5000s together for device sharing and using audio outputs from one unit for both sides.

Selecting Devices & Database Creation
STEP ONE - DEVICE SELECTION When prompted, select the desired storage device, on each side, that you wish to access. Use the Navigator Keypad to advance through the list of devices, and press Enter to select. If necessary, you can also connect other USB storage devices without powering down the unit. Fig 2.1 - Select USB device for either the MASTER or SLAVE units
Note that when you select a storage device on one side, the unit will be required to complete any necessary Database Creation before being able to select a device on the opposite side. During this time, the opposite screen will display Wait for other side. STEP TWO - INDEXING Once you have selected a device, the unit will search for a database of the music that exists on that device. If it is the first time you are using that particular unit with the HDTT-5000, the unit will prompt you to perform indexing, so that you can search for any song within seconds. If you already have used the storage device with the HDTT-5000, skip to STEP TWO - VERIFICATION. If you wish to create the database using the HDTT-5000, select YES from this prompt.
During the indexing procedure, the unit must create a database based off of the ID3 tags that exist on the storage device. The speed of this procedure directly relates to how many songs are stored on the connected device. If you are using a hard drive over 20 gigs, or an NTFS device, we suggest that you use the Cortex Database Creation PC application to perform the indexing, as it will save time (especially with a fast CPU). The Cortex Database Creation software is available for FREE from http://www.cortex-pro.com in the HDTT-5000 section of the site.

Once the indexing procedure has begun, it can be cancelled by pressing the Info button. VERIFICATION If your storage device has already been indexed, you will be presented with a prompt allowing you to verify the database. For each time that you add files to your storage device, you will either have to use the Verify function to add those files to the index, or use the Cortex Database Creation PC application. We strongly suggest using the Database Creation Software, as it can process files at many times the speed of the HDTT-5000 itself.

Fig 2.4- Every time music is added to your storage device, the database must be verified and updated in order to index the new songs.
HDTT-5000 Quickstart Guide Firmware Updates
Section Sixteen: Firmware Updates One of the most powerful features of the HDTT-5000 is the capability to upgrade the internal software. This lends itself to the addition of new features and support, the optimization of current processes, and the capability to fix bugs as they arise.
Firmware updates will be issued periodically at
We suggest that you stay as current as possible with all updates in order to insure the highest level of functionality and compatibility that Cortex has to offer. 1. Power on the HDTT-5000 with NO DEVICES CONNECTED. To check the version of firmware installed:
Fig 3.1 - Automatic detection of new firmware, option to update
2. At the prompt that says Insert Devices, press the INFO button.
3. The screen will display the version number of the currently installed HDTT-5000 firmware. To update the firmware, follow these steps:
3. Connect the USB storage device to the HDTT-5000, and select it from the Device Menu (during startup). Make sure your HDTT-5000 is connected to a stable power source, where there is no potential of the unit losing power during update.
2. Place the file in the root directory of your external USB storage device.
1. Using Internet Explorer or other web browser of your choice, download the latest firmware upgrade from http://www.cortex-pro.com.
Fig 3.2 - Updating the firmware in 8 stages
4. When the HDTT-5000 detects the firmware in the root directory of the USB storage device, it will ask you if you want to apply the update. You must answer YES. If the version of firmware on the storage device is the same or older than what you have, it will be ignored.
5. When updating, the unit will go through 8 stages. This will take only a few minutes. If the power is interrupted or the USB device is removed during this process, it can damage the operating system of the unit.
6. When the update is completed, the unit will shut itself down. You must press power to restart the unit. Once the unit has booted up again, the new software will take effect. You may then erase the firmware update from your USB device at your convenience (it will not be detected again).
