            Comments about Gemini CDMP-1400 Professional CD and USB Mass Storage Device Player:

            I use two CDMP's 1400 on stage as background music players, both playing from USB flash memory sticks. I have identical 800 songs on both 32GB flash cards. The reason for two machines is the convenience of being able to prepare the following song on the machine which is currently on stand by, so we can play non-stop. It is possible with one CDMP as well but this is stress less and making a mistake might result in stopping the song currently played.
            I have to disagree with one of the previous reviews that a large number of tracks/songs might be an issue. The songs whether on CD or flash card need to be arranged in folders. In my case I have alphabetical folders and I can find any of my 800 songs in no time. The folder with songs starting with letter "S" is the biggest with about 50 songs.
            My only complaint is that the TRACK/FOLDER button should have stronger springs. It is too easy to push and too easy to turn. I pulled a rubber washer over the button enlarging the diameter. It gives my fingers more control when turning.
            After playing my background music from Minidisks for several years this is definitely much better choice.

            Best Uses

            • Mobile Djing Backup

            Comments about Gemini CDMP-1400 Professional CD and USB Mass Storage Device Player:

            I moved to PC DJing several years ago and finally got tired of lugging my dual rack mounted CD player. I still wanted a CD player though. Something better than a walkman but not as big as a 2RU CD player. This fits the bill perfectly.

            It comes with a few added benefits as well. I can use it as an extra mic input (DJ mixers never support enough mics), it reads USB drives and it has a remote control. This gives me lots of extra versatility without a lot of extra weight.

            Time will tell if the unit stands up well. The only caveat so far is the search is a bit finicky without a jog wheel.

            • Small radio stations

            Comments about Gemini CDMP-1400 Professional CD and USB Mass Storage Device Player:

            I installed the CDMP-1400 in the rack of my public radio station's on-air control room, plugged in the XLR cables (no labeling of L-R output on XLR, but the right channel seems to be closest to the outer edge) and started using the player right away.

            The unit also has (labeled) RCA outputs, and a hybrid 1/4 inch jack/XLR mic input for club mixing.

            The documentation is not user friendly or complete, having each section in multiple languages rather than a full user's guide in each language, but after some experience with the unit, I was able to write up instructions for the show hosts.

            The unit is not quite as forgiving of marginal quality CDs as some pro-machines might be, but the CDMP-1400 does indeed play MP3 CD-R's and most audio CDs, as well as USB thumb drives and audio from a USB hard drive that I tried out.

            For USB files, I wouldn't recommend trying to access a directory of more than 50 titles, since the directory is navigated one song at a time with the selector knob (rotating the knob repeatedly will gradually move through the file listings, but you can't jump forward, say, to the middle or end of the directory. For large music databases you really need a computer. This unit would excel with a playlist of content prepared for one or two air shifts, rather than allowing you to bring in thousands of songs on your hard drive in order to accommodate requests...again, you'll need a computer for that.

            I had to turn the volume control knob all the way up to get the best output level to the mixer, but the audio level was fine at that level. There is also a mic input level control.

            I placed a note reminding folks not to attempt feeding paper-labelled CDs or credit-card CDs into the slot. We have a couple of old Sony CD-RW/burner units with trays for that sort of thing.

            I'm not using the remote in the control room, though it does have some interesting features that would be useful for analysis, such as support for calculating the beats per minute on any song.

            I don't anticipate a use for the looping feature, and am not sure yet how to cancel an inadvertant cue point in a song without powering down the player, but in most cases this isn't an issue.

            The pitch controls are straightforward, and I do like the common controls for navigating CD tracks and USB-accessed audio files.

            Once a CD (or USB device) loads, the selector switch is used to line up the track or file that you want, and then you press in on the selector knob to lock the track or load the file (if you don't do this on CDs, they will eventually jump back to the first track.

            I don't know yet how well the unit will wear, but it seems well worth the asking price.
