Press the HOT CUE mode button to set the PADs to Hot Cue mode.
Each one of the 16* pad assigns a Hot Cue Point (1 to 16) or jumps the track to that Hot Cue Point (if assigned).
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 on.
The color of the Pad depends on the setting nonColoredPOI or the assigned color from the POI Editor.
Hold SHIFT and then press a pad to delete its assigned Hot Cue Point.
Use the PAGE buttons to jump the song to the previous/next assigned HotCue point.
Hold SHIFT and then use the PAGE buttons to jump 1 beat backwards/forward.
* By default the VirtualDJ GUI will show Pads 1 to 8. Use the HOTCUE mode button to toggle between the Pads 1-8 and Pads 9-16 views. Note that the Pads 9-16 view on the GUI will only be available when the Pioneer DDJ-XP1 is connected.
