The Play and Cue buttons work as expected.
The Pitch and Gain sliders can be used to increase or decrease the pitch and gain.
The Tap button can be used for deck selection. When used on the first controller, it will switch control between deck A and deck B. When used on the second controller (when available), it will be used to switch between deck B and deck C.
There are 6 buttons that define what the center circle will do:
Selects filter effect. Use the outer ring to control the filter effect.
Don't forget to turn the filter effect on first. (Bottom-left button outside the disc)
The disc works as 3 sliders, which control low, mid and high frequency equalizer.

The bottom-left button outside the disc will activate or deactivate Synchronized Loops mode.
