BASIC OPERATION
*This guide explains the basics of using vjay for iPad.
Once setup has completed, let's play some video. To begin with, load a video to deck 1 (left).
(NOTE) Make sure the left and right Input fader of XW-J1 (#17) are both set to the lowest position.
Push left key of the Cross key (#22) to open your play list and choose some video Clips by finger tap.
* You can use UP/DOWN key for selecting video in “Video” list.
“Videos” list
Set the Crossfader (#16) to the left and slowly raise
the left Input fader (#17).The video will start playing
immediately when it has been loaded, you can hear
the sound by simply raising the Input fader (#17).
If the sound volume is too low, adjust the Gain
knob (#19) to a point were the Input level meter
(#18) just reaches the red LED, then reduce it
slightly.

★ TIP
If you want the song to standby on pause
when it has been loaded to a deck, go to
vjay screen
> settings button
> settings
> Playback
> “Play Automatically”
> OFF

The Crossfader (#16), crosses (mixes) the videos playing on deck 1 and 2.
Deck 1's video is played when the Crossfader (#16) is set to the left,
and deck 2's video is played when it is set to the right.Both decks
videos are played out when the Crossfader is set to the center, which
will let you mix both songs using the Input faders (#17).
Deck 1 side
Deck 2 side
Right now there's a video playing on the left deck(deck1).
Use the Cross key (#22) again to choose a video from
yourplay list. This time, push the right cross key to open
the video list and load to the right deck(deck 2).
Both decks (1 and 2) are now playing videos.
The videos can be mixed by moving the Crossfader
and Input faders, but will sound awkward because
the tempo of the two songs is different.Usually a DJ
adjusts the tempo of the two songs using the Tempo
fader (#1), to make a mix, but this requires technique
and experience.
However, it's a different case if you use vjay and XW-J1.
Push the SYNC button (#15) on one side. Do you notice
the change?
The tempo of deck 1 and 2 now matches. djay does the
most difficult part of DJing for you. Everyone and anyone
can be a DJ!
You can listen to songs with your headphones with the
input fader kept down, before playing them out by
pushing the Monitoring button (#24)
★ TIP
The vjay crossfader control has real-time
Video Transition & Effect function when it
is operated.
- Blend
- Cube
- Swap
- Grid
- Mosaic
- Push
When you operate the cross fader for
mixing deck 1 and 2 video and sound,
you can enjoy visual mix effect!

2. START POINT & CUE POINT
Cue points of video and song can be set with XW-J1. 4 cue points can be set on each deck.
A) How to set a START POINT

The visual waveform of the track displayed in vjay is a helpful aid when looking for a desired point.
Once you have decided where to set a start point, push SET CUE(#13) and that point will be saved as
the START POINT. (The START POINT is displayed as a white color dot on the sound wave form in vjay)
Once a START POINT is set, the track will jump to that point every time you push CUE PLAY(#14).

Up to 3 CUE points can be set easily with the CUE 1, CUE 2 and CUE 3 buttons in the CUE POINT
area (#7). CUE points are saved to tracks when a CUE button is pushed. Push the CUE button again
to jump to a saved CUE point. CUE points can be deleted by pushing SHIFT (#23) together with each
CUE button. (CUE points are displayed as red, green and blue dots on the sound wave form in vjay)

Use the 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 buttons in the BOUNCE LOOP area to trigger loops for fixed lengths only
while the buttons are pushed. When the loop is turned off (when you release the button) the playback
position is returned to the position where it would be if it had not entered the loop. Loops set with
BOUNCE LOOP are great for creating instant stutter effects.
