Denon DJ - MC-6000 - Layout

DECK CONTROLS





  1. DECK SELECT: Switch Left decks (1 and 3) and Right Decks (2 and 4). The left side of the MC6000 will control VirtualDJ decks 1 or 3, and the right side will control VirtualDJ decks 2 or 4.

  2. KEYLOCK: Press this button to "lock" the track's pitch to its current key. The track's tempo will be adjusted by the Pitch Fader (36).
    Hold down SHIFT and tap this button 4 times to calculate a new BPM for the track.

  3. LOOP IN: Press this button to set a Loop In (Entry point).
    Hold down SHIFT and then press this button to exit a loop.

  4. LOOP OUT: Press this button to set the Loop Out (Exit point).
    Hold down SHIFT and then press this button to exit a loop.

  5. LOOP-: Press this button to half the size (in beats) of the Loop. If Sampler is active (Sampler Pad page is selected for this deck) press this button to select the previous sampler bank.
    Hold down SHIFT and then press this button to move the loop backwards in beats as many beats as the current loop size.

  6. AUTOLOOP: Press this button to enable/disable a Loop of the selected size. If Sampler is active (Sampler Pad page is selected for this deck) press this button to select the next sampler mode for the sampler buttons.
    Hold down SHIFT and then press this button to enable/disable smart loop. While smart loop is enabled, loop out points will be automatically adjusted so that your loop has a perfect length (in beats).

  7. LOOP+: Press this button to double the size (in beats) of the Loop. If Sampler is active (Sampler Pad page is selected for this deck) press this button to select the next sampler bank.
    Hold down SHIFT and then press this button to move the loop forward in beats as many beats as the current loop size.

  8. PITCH: Adjust the track's playback speed (tempo).
    The actual pitch fader will not alter the pitch of the track if the actual pitch and the software pitch value do not match (software soft-takeover, ghost fader visible on the GUI). In most cases this may happen if SYNC is prior pressed or switching decks and the other deck is having a different pitch software value.

  9. HOTCUE/SAMPLER BUTTONS: These 4 buttons offer a different function depending on the selected mode (38).
    In HotCue mode the 4 buttons assign a Hot Cue Point (1 to 4) or return 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 on your track. Once it is assigned, the Hot Cue Button will light. To return to that Hot Cue Point, simply press the button again.
    Hold down SHIFT and then press a Hot Cue Button to delete its assigned Hot Cue Point.

    In Sampler mode, the 4 buttons will trigger a Sample from the selected Bank of VirtualDJ. If the selected bank has less than 5 samples (slots), both sides of the MC6000 will control the same samples. If a bank has more than 4 samples (slots), the left side of the MC6000 will control samples 1 to 4 and the right side samples 5 to 8.
    Hold down SHIFT and then press a button to stop the corresponding sample (useful if the selected Sampler Trigger mode is set to Stutter or Unmute)

  10. HOTCUE/SAMPLER MODE: Use this button to select the HotCue or Sampler mode for the HotCue/Sampler buttons (37).

  11. JOG: Touch sensitive jogwheel. Use the jogwheel to scratch (if Vinyl mode is enabled) or pitch bend.
    Hold down SHIFT and then use the jogwheel to fast seek through the track.

  12. SYNC: Press this button to automatically match the corresponding deck's tempo with the opposite deck's (or the Master deck’s if using a 4 decks skin) tempo and phase.
    Hold down SHIFT and press this button to set this deck as Master Deck.

  13. SEARCH <<: Press this button to seek the track 4 beats backward. Press and hold this button to keep seeking the track backwards.
    Hold down SHIFT and press this button to set the Jogwheel to Vinyl (Scratch) mode. In Vinyl mode, use the outer part of the Jogwheel to bend (temporary speed up – slow down) the tempo of the track.

  14. SEARCH >>: Press this button to seek the track 4 beats forward. Press and hold this button to keep seeking the track forward.
    Hold down SHIFT and press this button to set the Jogwheel to CD (Bend) mode.

  15. CUE: When the deck is paused, you can set a Temporary Cue Point by moving the Platter to place the Audio Pointer at the desired location and then pressing the Cue Button.
    During playback, you can press the Cue Button to return the track to this Temporary Cue Point. (If you did not set a Cue Point, then it will return to the beginning of the track.).
    If the deck is paused, you can press and hold the Cue Button to play the track from the Temporary Cue Point. Releasing the Cue Button will return the track to the Temporary Cue Point and pause it. To continue playback without returning to the Temporary Cue Point, press and hold the Cue Button, then press and hold the Play Button, and then release both buttons.

  16. PLAY: Plays / Pauses the track.
