Once the Sampler mode has been activated by using the Sampler Button the player will play samples from the banks simultaneously with the playback. For every bank, a 5-second sample can be saved and played back. Press one of the respective Bank Buttons 1 to 4 to trigger the previously stored Cue Points or samples.</p> <h1>Pan Button</h1><p>The Pan Button activates a Balance effect. This effect, depending on the beat frequency, alternates the signal from the left to the right loudspeaker side.</p> <h1>Trans Button</h1><p>Use the Trans Button to activate a Cut effect. This effect sounds as if cutting the signal quickly with the cross fader.</p> <h1>Flanger Button</h1><p>Use the Flanger Button to activate the flanger effect. This frequently applied effect is similar to the Phase effect, but slightly more harmonious, emphasises the upper pitch more and is reminiscent of a flying aircraft.</p> <h1>Echo Button</h1><p>Use the Echo Button to activate a Reverb/Delay effect.</p> <h1>Hold Button</h1><p>When activating the Hold function with the button your player maintains the set effect frequency. Otherwise, the effect value always returns to the original value.</p> <h1>Phase Button</h1><p>Use the Phase Button to activate the phase effect.

This is generally divided into two sections for scratch applications. The top section is touch sensitive and responds to the body‘s own electricity - similar to a vinyl record on the turntable. The outer rubberised ring has been designed for pitch bending - similar to the edge of a turntable‘s platter. If the Scratch function has been deactivated, the entire Jog Wheel also works as a Search and Pitch Bend wheel.</p> <h1>USB Media port</h1><p>You can connect external USB media to this port, like for example USB sticks or external USB hard disks.
