QUICK START INSTRUCTIONS
American DJ would like to thank for your purchase of this great
product. For those of you that are to impatient to read the entire
user manual we have compiled these quick start instructions.
We hope that you will at least read through these instructions
to familiarize yourself with the basic understanding of the unit.
The Q-D3 is part of American DJ’s continuing evolution in audio
technology. This unit has been built and designed with the typical DJ in mind, by DJ’s. We have attempted to provide you with
the most reliable product on the market by using only components made from quality products.
MASTER LEVEL - Use this level control to set your volume
output. Try never to send an output of more than +4dB to your
system. Signal at levels higher than this will start to distort and
may cause damage to your system and speakers. Remember
that a distorted signal from you mixer will only be multiplied
throughout your system.
CHANNEL TRIM LEVEL - The channel trim levels are not to be used as volume controls, never
use the channel trim to set the output volume. These controls are used to aid in distortion control. Use
these control to preset your signal level before the crossfader. With your channel faders in the maximum
position, use the channel trim level to set an average output level of about +4dB on you master level
meter.
HEADPHONES - To avoid sever hearing damage, always be sure the headphone level is set to
minimum before plugging them in. Never put the headphone on without making sure the headphone
level is turned down.
MAIN MIC - The main mic connector uses a 1/4” jack unbalanced connector. The DJ mic has an
independent volume control. When feedback occurs when using the mic, try lowering the “low” level this
may reduce the feedback. Always leave the mic level to it’s minimum level when not in use.
PHONO/AUX SWITCH (29) - This switch is used to change the selected input from phono level to
line level and vice versa. Channels 1 and 2 may be switched PHONO/AUX or LINE. The selectors for
AUX1/PHONO1 and AUX2/PHONO2 are on the rear panel (24).
Q-START FEATURE - This function works in conjunction with a compatible American DJ “Q”Start
CD player. When used with a compatible CD player, you can use the crossfader to start and stop the
CD Player with the slide of the fader. The ON/OFF “Q ”START switch activates this FADER “Q ”START
feature.

1. FEATHER FADER PLUS CROSSFADER - This fader is used to blend the output signals of channels one and two together. When the fader is in the full left position (channel 1), the output signal of
channel one will be controlled by the master volume level. The same fundamentals will apply for channel two. Sliding the fader from one position to another will vary the output signals of channels one and
two respectively. When the crossfader is set in the center position, the output signals of both the channels one and channels two will be even.
2. HAMSTER SWITCH - This switch changes the polarity of the Crossfader (for crabbing). Channel
1 will be activated by the right side of the crossfader (mixing from right to left), and Channel 2 will be
activated by the left side of the crossfader (mixing from left to right).
3. CHANNEL FADER - These faders are used to control the output signal of any source assigned to
its particular channel.

are used to select the input source assigned to each channel. Each channel may only be assigned one
input source at a time. The TRANSFORMER SWITCH may be used in an up/down or left/right pattern.
To adjust the transformer orientation please follow the instructions on page 12.
5. PFL BUTTONS - These buttons are used to activate a channels “CUE” mode. A red LED next to the
PFL button will glow when a channels cue mode is activated. Cue mode will send a channels incoming
signal to the headphones. The cue level is adjusted by the Cue Level Adjustment Knob (15). Be sure
the cue level is set to minimum before putting a pair of headphones on. Be sure the Cue Mixing Knob
(14) is turned to the “CUE” position to hear the selected channel source.
6. TALKOVER BUTTON - When engaged this function will decrease all signal levels, except the microphone level, by 15dB. A red LED next to the Talkover Button will glow when the talkover function is
engaged. In the OFF position all signals will remain at their normal levels.
7. MICROPHONE CONTROLS - These controls are used to adjust the microphone volume output level,
treble level, and bass levels. Turn the knobs in a clockwise direction to increase the selected value.
8. CHANNEL CUT BUTTONS - These buttons are used to cut out the Treble, Mid or Bass frequencies
of the incoming audio signal. When these buttons are depressed the selected frequency level is cut by
100%. When a Cut Button is engaged a red LED located directly above the specific button will begin to
glow, indicating the cut function has been activated. Depressing the Cut Button will disengage the cut
function.
9. dB METER MODE SELECTOR - This push button switch is used to change the operating mode of
the dB LED meter. When the switch is in the Master L/R (up) position, the dB meter will indicate the
master output levels. When the switch is in the PFL CH1/CH2 (down) position the dB meter will use
the left side of the meter to indicate channel one’s prefader level and use the right side of the meter to
indicate channel two’s prefader level.
10. LEVEL INDICATORS - The dual LED’s indicators are used to indicate either the master output level
or the PFL level’s of channels one and two. The level indicators will directly reflect the operating mode
of the dB Selector Switch (9).
11. CHANNEL GAIN CONTROL - This adjustment is used to adjust an audio source signal input gain
for a channel. Never use the gain control to adjust output volume. Setting the gain level properly will
ensure a clean output signal. To properly set the gain level controls:
1. Be sure the Master Volume Control (13) is set to minimum (zero output).
2. Set the Channel Fader (3) to level 7.
3. Begin play on an audio source connected to the channel you are adjusting.
4. Be sure the LED Level Indicator Function Switch (9) is set to the PFL CH1/CH2 position.
5. Turn the PFL (5) function on, for the channel you are adjusting.
6. Use the Gain Control (11) to achieve an average output level of +4 dB.
12. MAIN POWER SWITCH - This is the main power ON/OFF button. A yellow LED above the power
switch will glow to indicating power is ON. Before main power is applied, be sure you have made all connections to the mixer. Also be sure your amplifier(s) is tuned off. Remember to avoid damaging pops,
mixer on first and turned off last.
13. MASTER VOLUME CONTROL - This rotary knob is used to control the master output level
(volume). To avoid distorted output try to maintain an average output signal level +4 dB. Be sure this
volume control is always set to zero before turning the unit on.

each channel individually. Connect your headphones to the HEADPHONES jack. Turn the CUE MIXING
CONTROL to CUE and select the desired channels with the PFL switches. When you turn the CUE
MIXING CONTROL to PGM (PFL switches without function), you can cue the output signal of the mixer.
If the CUE MIXING CONTROL is set to the center position, you can cue both the channel signal you
selected and the output signal.With the CUE LEVEL control, you can adjust the phones volume without
changing the output signal.
15. CUE LEVEL VOLUME CONTROL - This knob is used to adjusts the headphone volume output
level. Turn the knob in a clockwise direction to increase the headphone volume.
16. HEADPHONE JACK - This jack is used to connect your headphones to the mixer allowing you to
monitor the cue source. Use headphones only rated at 8 ohms to 32 ohms. Most DJ headphones are
rated at 16 ohm, these are highly recommended. Always be sure the CUE LEVEL VOLUME (12) is set
to minimum before you put the headphones on.
17. CHANNEL EQUALIZER (“ROTARY KILLS” - BASS/MID/TREBLE CONTROL) - Both of the channels include a three-band signal output EQ. These controls are used to increase or decrease the LOW’s,
MID’s, and HI’s of the output signal. The Q-D3 features “Rotary Kills” with a -30dB to +20dB gain control.
Turning the knob counter-clockwise will decrease a particular frequency applied to an output signal,
turning a knob clockwise will increase a particular frequency applied to an output signal.
18. FADER CURVE SWITCH - This switch is used to change the way the crossfader will operate. The
crossfader can operate in three different modes, NORMAL CURVE and two types of QUICK CURVE
(Quick Curve usually used for crabbing).
19. Q-START ON/OFF SWITCH - This function works in conjunction with a compatible American DJ
“Q” Start CD player. When used with a compatible CD player, you can use the crossfader to start and
stop the CD play. The ON/OFF “Q” START (8) switch activates the fader “Q” start feature. When the
fader “Q” start feature is activated sliding the CROSSFADER (14) from left to right will play or cue any
CD player connected to the controller jacks (16) on the rear of the unit.
For example, connect a compatible dual CD player connect to mixer channels one and two (refer
to your CD player manual for proper set-up). Be sure the Fader “Q” Start feature is activated on
both channels. Slide the crossfader to the channel one position (full left) and begin playback on
CD drive one. Slide the crossfader to the channel position (far right). This will immediately
trigger the play function on CD drive two and return CD drive one to cue mode. To return to
normal fader operation turn the Fader “Q” Start ON/OFF SWITCH (8) to the OFF position.
