Hot Cues


When the HOTCUE/AUTOLOOP mode button (38) is unlit, the 8 Pads offer HotCue functions.

Each one of the 8 PADs (37) assigns a Hot Cue Point (1 to 8) 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. To return to that Hot Cue Point, simply press it.

Hold SHIFT down and then press a PAD to delete its assigned HotCue.


Loops


When the HOTCUE/AUTOLOOP mode button (38) is lit, the 8 Pads offer Auto Loop and Loop Roll functions.

Each one of the 8 Pads (37) triggers a Loop of a different size in beats (1/8 to 16) as per the image.

Hold SHIFT down and then use the same Pads to trigger a momentary Loop Roll (while pressed) of the same size in beats as per the image. When the PAD is released the track will resume from the position it would have been if the Loop was never triggered.
