When a Line-In is available in the Audio Setup additional AUX panels will be offered in the Scratch Mixer to enable/disable auxiliary inputs. With a Line-In enabled, clicking on the REC button will record the file to memory and temporarily save it to the deck. Once a new file is loaded to the deck, the temporary recording will be erased.


Timecode


When Timecode Inputs are available in the Audio Setup, additional Timecode panels will be offered in the Scratch Mixer to enable/disable timecode control for each deck. A quality meter offers information about the strength of the timecode signal. Timecode control is offered in the decks when using the 2 Deck Mixer.


Note: If both Timecode and Line-Ins are enabled in the Audio Setup, Timecode display will take priority and the Line-Ins will not be displayed. Master panel
