What is the MPU and what components are in it?

The CDJ-3000 is the first MPU-driven unit we've made.

The MPU (micro-processing unit) is the driving force of the player. It features 2 types of multicore CPU:

A dual-core Arm® Cortex®-A57 (1.5GHZ) and a quad-core Arm® Cortex®-A53 (1.2GHZ).

We chose this industrial-grade MPU specifically to deliver unprecedented performance and enable advanced new features such as lightning-fast load times of tracks and Hot Cues, high-quality Key Shift and Key Sync, Touch Preview, Touch Cue, and 96 kHz playback.

These demanding features can all be used in parallel while the unit also delivers the highest level of audio quality ever produced from a AlphaTheta multi player.
