ADJUSTING PITCH/ALIGNING BEATS
Pitch Button: Activates the pitch slider and adjusts the amount of
control the pitch slider has on the overall speed of music.
Pressing “PITCH” will toggle the slider on and off. Range
adjustments of 6, 12, 25, and 100% can be achieved by
holding down “PITCH” and then pressing
through the range options. This setting will be remembered
at power down.
Pitch Slider: By moving the slider toward “+” the speed of the
music speeds up. By moving toward “-” the speed slows
down. With 100% control the music can be stopped or played
at 2 times original speed. To match the speeds of two units
you can either monitor the music of both units by ear or use
the automatic BPM readout and adjust the pitch to match.
When the tempo of the music of the CD you wish to match is
slow compared to the tempo of the other music, move the
slider to the (+) end and match the BPM.
When faster, move the pitch slider to the (-) end. By making
this adjustment the speeds will be matched though the beats
may not yet be aligned.
Pitch Bend: Buttons and Jog Wheel: Allows the user to
temporarily change the speed of the music to align beats.
When the beats of the music of the CD you wish to match are
fast compared to the tempo of the other music press the
button or rotate the jog wheel counter clockwise (to the left).
When PLAYER 2 is behind press the
button or rotate the
jog wheel clockwise (to the right). The pitch changes
temporarily while the
buttons are being pressed or
the jog wheel is rotated.
The faster you rotate the wheel or the longer you hold the
buttons the more you change the speed. Releasing the button
or wheel results in a return to the original pitch.
