Use the play/pause button to start or pause a track.
When the track is playing, the cue button will stop the track and return to the current cue point.
When the track is paused, pressing cue will set the cue point to the current position, or starts playing the song while the cue button is pressed.
Press pause while cue is pressed to continue playing even when cue is released.
The crossfader and volume sliders will adjust the volume as expected.
The low, and high knobs control the low and high frequency equalizer.
Use the pitch slider to adjust the pitch of each deck. Note that this slider works relative to the current pitch.
This means that you can use djDecks' auto beat match function, and then adjust the pitch slightly with the pitch slider if necessary.
The Master button will adjust the pitch to match the other decks' bpm.
Holding the button for more than a second and then releasing it will reset the pitch to 0%.
The Scratch and Jog Seek buttons switch between different jog wheel modes.
When both are disabled, the jog wheel can be used for pitch bending, when scratch is enabled it can be used for scratching, and when jog seek is enabled, it can be used to rapidly search through the song.
The Master Volume knob will control the master volume.
The Cue Vol knob will control the cue volume.
The CUE PGM knob controls the amount of the master output that is sent to the monitor output.
The Cue button above the jog wheel toggles that output to be sent to the monitor output.
To load a previously saved cue point, press 1 of the 4 hot cue buttons.
To store a cue point, hold the Shift button and press one of the four hot cue buttons to store it to that location.
The Loop In button will set the start point of a loop, when the Loop Out button is pressed a loop will be activated.
When a loop is active, the Loop Out button can be used to exit the loop.
The Reloop button will re-activate the previous loop and start playing it from the beginning of the loop.
The Loop - and Loop + buttons will halve or double the length of the current loop.
An effect can be selected with the effect select knob. To enable an effect, use the effect on/off button (reverse button?) which will also show the state of the effect.
Effect 1: Flanger. The strength of the effect can be set with the X Parameter knob. The length of the effect can be set with the Y parameter.
Press the Y parameter button to hold the effect from flanging, and press again to continue the flanger movement
Effect 2: Echo. The X parameter knob controls the strength of the echo, the Y parameter controls the length of the echo
The effect on/off parameter toggles source and echo parameters, creating a short echo effect, but with the song still continuing to play.
Effect 3: Filter. Use effect on/off button to enable the effect.
When using the X parameter knob from center to left, it will first cut the high frequency sounds, then the low frequency sounds. When using it from center to right, it will first cut the low frequencies.
With the Y parameter you can specify the feedback. Moving this knob more to the left will make the effect sound stronger.
Effect 4: Bitcrusher. The first knob controls the downsampling, with the effect increasing from left to right.
The second knob controls the bit-depth, with the effect increasing from right to left.
Effect 8: Reverse. Use the effect on/off button to enable reverse play
First create a loop, then use Save To to activate saving a sample, and then press the sample number to store the sample.
