HOTCUES & SAMPLER
This section offers HotCues and Sampler Control and 2 different banks for each one.
- BANK Use this button to choose the 1st or the 2nd bank for both HotCues and Sampler. When the led of this button is turned on, the HotCues and Sampler buttons will offer control of the 2nd bank.
- HOTCUES 1-4/(5-8). Each one of the 4 HotCue buttons assigns a Hot Cue Point 1 to 4 (or 5 to 8 if the 2nd bank is selected) or returns the track to that Hot Cue Point.
When a Hot Cue Button is unlit, you can assign a Hot Cue Point by pressing it at the desired point in your track. Once it is assigned, the Hot Cue Button will light up red.
Hold SHIFT and then press a button to delete its assigned Hot Cue Point. Red leds will blink if a HotCue point exists.
- SAMPLES 1-4/(5-8) Each one of the 4 Sampler buttons triggers a sample from the selected Sampler Bank of VirtualDJ8. The buttons will control samples 1 to 4 (or 5 to 8 if the 2nd bank is selected).
If a bank has less than 9 samples, both sides of the Terminal Mix 4 will control the same samples. If a bank has more than 8 samples, the left side of the Terminal Mix 4 will control samples 1 to 8 and the right side samples 9 to 16.
The Leds of the Sampler buttons will be turned on if a sampler slot is available (loaded) and will blink is triggered.
Press the buttons to trigger a sample. Depending on the selected trigger mode, use SHIFT and the same pads to stop the sample.
The Terminal Mix 4 offers 2 stereo Inputs. A LINEIN
at the rear side (Input Channels 1 and 2) and a Microphone Input
at the front (Input channels 3 and 4). Each one of the Inputs can be routed through the Master Output directly (front switchers to MST position) or through VirtualDJ (front switchers to SW position). A Level knob for each Input is offered to adjust its Input Volume.
Recording & Broadcasting
The unit offers the ability to record the Master Output along with the Microphone and LINE Inputs directly from VirtualDJ record button (in the MASTER center panel).
In this case, both the Microphone and LINE Inputs need to be in SW Input mode
The Microphone Input is already part of the pre-defined audio configuration, therefore only a Line In line needs to be manually added to the audio configuration, as per the following image. Note. If the Line or the Microphone Inputs are not required to be recorded, it is advised not to route the Microphone through the software, as an additional latency will be applied.
Even though the Terminal Mix 4 is not designed to support Timecoded CDs and Vinyls (DVS), the unit is capable to offer Timecode setups. In theory only a single Timecode device can be used (connection to the LINE Input), however a second Timecoded device can be also connected to the MIC Input (and adjust the Level of its signal).
The following audio configuration is showing an audio configuration with a single Timecode input.
