All in the Mix

Here you’ll find the main level output, and one push encoder for browsing playlists and loading tracks, samples, or loops. The Snap button ensures cue points and loops sound tight by snapping to the nearest point of the track beatgrid. The Quant button means they’ll play quantized in perfect phase-sync by launching in time, at the right moment. The Master button switches between Master Clock and Master Deck Mode.
Record loops on-the-fly from any channel (single or multiple), or capture audio live from the mic input or master output. Then layer and overdub loops on top of one another to build live mixes. Even connect a footswitch (optional) to trigger recording and overdubbing, keeping your hands free for additional tweaking. Got a killer loop going? Instantly transfer it to a Remix Deck slot, freeing up the Loop Recorder for further use.
All faders have special path limiters to ensure zero dead zone at their boundaries – giving a sharp cutting attack. Their lasting, rugged quality continually excels in even the most demanding of gig schedules. Included fader covers now help prevent dust wear. Relative pitch faders avoid sudden jumps in tempo when adjusting track speeds. Adjust the pitch and the track will respond as though the fader was beginning from 0 percent, ensuring smooth transitions in tempo.
