To use the PCDJ DAC-3's controls, you have to activate it in the
djDecks configuration. To do this, open the options window, and
select the General tab.
There you can check the PCDJ DAC-3 option.
-Pitch Slider Relative mode will switch between a relative or an absolute pitch slider. Absolute means that the center of the pitch slider will always be 0%. This means it can't be used in combination with automatic bpm matching. Relative mode is default, and it means that the pitch will increase/decrease from the current pitch as you move the pitch slider, whatever absolute position the pitch slider was on. This means that the center position on the pitch slider may not always be 0% song pitch.
-Jog Wheel sensitivity sets the sensitivity of the jog wheel. The default is 100, increasing it will make the pitch respond harder on small wheel movements.
The way the Play/Pause and Cue buttons work depend on the cue mode
configuration in djDecks. (Menu, Options, General)
