4Track BPM: Displays the tempo (in beats per minute aka BPM) of the currently loaded track with a 0% pitch adjustment. To see the BPM at which it is currently playing, see Deck BPM below. In the Browser Files view, the Column can be adjusted to provide alternative info (see Browser settings)
5Track Key: Displays the key of the currently loaded track. In Browser view, the Key can be displayed instead of the BPM value via DECK+VIEW button.
6Deck BPM: Displays the current BPM at which the loaded track is playing. This value is not affected by temporary pitch bends (using the Pitch Bend -/+ buttons or the platter).
7Remaining Time: Displays how much time is left of the currently loaded track. Note that the displayed time is not taking the tempo into account (absolute value), so if the current tempo is not equal to the original one, the time will differ from the one that is displayed on the Skin. The ring around the virtual platter is a visual representation of this value (the complete circle being the entire track).
8Pitch Range: Displays the currently selected range of the Pitch Fader.
9Pitch Value This is the current Pitch value
10Track Progress bar: This is the currently loaded track's waveform, which is color-coded according to the frequency of each area: red indicates low (bass) frequencies, green indicated mid-range frequencies, and blue indicates high (treble) frequencies.
In the waveform, hot cue points are represented by triangles at the bottom of the waveform and loop regions are represented by shaded-blue sections.
12Auto-Loop. In Browser View only the deck's currently selected auto-loop length is displayed . In Performance view, the length of each of the 8 Pads in Loop mode is displayed (depending on the selected Bank of the Loop Pads page). Buttons become blue when the corresponding loop is triggered.
12Waveform: This is the currently playing segment of the track's waveform, which will scroll by as the audio play-head moves through the track. The waveform is color-coded according to the frequency of each area: red indicates low (bass) frequencies, green indicated mid-range frequencies, and blue indicates high (treble) frequencies. In the waveform, hot cue points are represented by triangles at the top and bottom of the waveform, and loop regions are represented by shaded-blue sections.
