pitch adjustments
Pitch adjustments:
The different pitch adjustments allow a track's or a loop's playback speed to be manipulated. This
speed manipulations is commonly used to beat match between two or more music sources. The playback speed may be increased or decreased by a factor of +/-16. The next section details the different
pitch manipulation schemes.
1. Pitch KNOB (11):
Figure 30
Activating the Pitch knob (11): To
activate the pitch KNOB (11) you must
turn on the pitch adjustment function. To
activate the PITCH KNOB (11) press the
PITCH BUTTON (10). The pitch indicator
will glow in the LCD, when the function
is activated. If the pitch function is not
activated the pitch KNOB (11) will not
function.
Figure 32
©American
This function will increase or decrease the
tracks playback speed or "PITCH." The maximum pitch percentage manipulation in this
function is +/-16%. The pitch KNOB (11) is
used to decrease or increase the playback
pitch. If the knob is turned counter-clockwise
the pitch will decrease, if the knob is turned
clockwise the pitch will increase. The pitch
KNOB (11) adjustment can be changed to
range from +/-4%, +/-8%, or +/-16% (See
changing "PITCH PERCENTAGE RANGE"
on the next page). The PITCH KNOB (11) will
only effect normal playback and loops when
the PITCH KNOB (11) is active.
Figure 31
Using the Pitch knob (11): Be sure
the pitch function has been activated as
described above. To use the pitch knob
(11) turn the knob either clockwise or
counter-clockwise. Clockwise will increase
the pitch and counter-clockwise will decrease the pitch.
Audio® - www.americanaudio.us - Media Operator™ Instruction Manual Page 21
PITCH ADJUSTMENTS (Cont.)
Figure 33
Using
the
Pitch
Percentage
Selector (13): You may choose a pitch
operating range at any time. To change the
operating range be sure the pitch function
is turned on, see figure 31. The pitch percentage can be changed between +/-4%,
+/-8%, and +/-16%. 4% will allow the least
amount of pitch manipulation and 16% will
allow the most amount of pitch manipulation. To adjust the different values, press
the Pitch percentage Button (13) to
change the percentage, until your desired
percentage is reached.
2. Pitch Bending:
Unlike the Pitch KNOB (11) adjustment this function will momentarily increase or decrease a tracks
speed during playback. To operate the PITCH BEND use the (-) & (+) pitch BEND buttons (12).
The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed by pitch buttons (12) is +/-16%. The pitch bend
function will work in conjunction with the Pitch knob (11) pitch setting. For example, if the pitch
knob (11) is set to a 4% pitch gain the pitch bending process will begin at 4% and will continue to
the maximum of +/-16%.
3. Pitch bend buttons (12):
The (+) PITCH BEND button (12) will increase track playback speed and the (-) PITCH BEND button (12) will decrease track playback speed. The extent to which the speed changes is proportionate to the amount of time the button is pressed. For example, if the (+) PITCH BEND button (12) is
held down continuously as in Figure 35, the speed will increases and will continue to increase until
it reaches the percentage the PITCH PERCENTAGE BUTTON (13) is set to. When you release the (+)
Pitch bend button (12) the speed will automatically return to it’s previous set speed.
Holding down on the (-) PITCH BEND button (12) will provide a slow down in the playback pitch.
Figure 34
Holding down on the (+) PITCH BEND
button (12) will provide a speed bump in
the playback pitch.
