(a) FADER “Q” START CONTROL: This feature is used in conjunction with American Audio® mixers that
also feature “Fader Q Start” control. For best results use this feature with two CDS-1 players. By moving the
mixer’s crossfader from left to right you can start and pause your CDS-1's playback functions. For Example,
when using two CDS-1 units and a Fader “Q” Start mixer, if your mixer’s crossfader is all the way to the left
(player one is playing, player two is in cue or pause mode), and you move the fader at least 20% to the right,
player two will begin to play and player one will return to cue mode. When the crossfader is to the right, and
you move it 20% to the left, player one will begin to play and player two will return to its’ cue point. You can
create great effects similar to scratching with this feature. “Q” Start control is easy to use and mastering this
feature will help you create amazing effects with your music.
(b) FLIP-FLOP: This feature is used in conjunction with American Audio® mixers that also feature Fader “Q”
Start. For FLIP-FLOP results you must use two CDS-1 players. Connect your CDS-1’s as described in the setup section of this manual. This feature will start the next player once one player has ended. For example, if
player one is playing a disc and it ends, player two will instantly begin to play. You may set FLIP-FLOP to play
track to track or disc to disc. For more information on this feature, see FLIP-FLOP™ on page 23.

10. PITCH ADJUSTMENTS:
This function will increase or decrease a tracks playback speed or "PITCH," this is not a momentary change
as in "PITCH BENDING" (see page 16). The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed is +/-16%. The PITCH
SLIDER (19) is used to decrease or increase the playback pitch. If the slider is move up (towards the top of the
unit) the pitch will decrease, if the slider is moved down (towards the bottom of the unit) the pitch will increase.
The PITCH SLIDER (19) adjustment can be changed to range from +/-8%, +/-12%, or +/-16% (See changing
"PITCH SLIDER PERCENTAGE RANGE" figure 14/page 16). The pitch adjustments will effect playback, reverse
playback, and loops.
Activating the Pitch Slider (19): To activate the PITCH SLIDER
(19), turn the pitch function on. Press the PITCH BUTTON (21) to turn
on the pitch function, when the pitch function is activated the PITCH
LED (22) will begin to glow. If the pitch function is not activated neither
the PITCH SLIDER (19) nor the PITCH BEND BUTTONS (18) will not
function.
Figure 12
Using the Pitch Slider (19): To use the PITCH SLIDER (19) slide the
slider up and down. Down will increase the pitch and up will decrease
the pitch. The PITCH PERCENTAGE INDICATOR (40) in the LCD (3) will
detail the amount of pitch being applied to the track. When the slider is
in the center position, zero pitch is being applied to the track and the
PITCH PERCENTAGE INDICATOR (40) will read zero.

BASIC OPERATIONS (CONT.)
Adjusting the Pitch Slider's Range (19): You may change the PITCH
SLIDER'S (19) operating range. To change the operating range be sure
the pitch function is turned on, see figure 12 on the previous page. The
pitch percentage can be changed between +/-8%, +/-12%, and +/-16%.
+/-8% will allow the least amount of pitch manipulation and +/-16% will
allow the most amount of pitch manipulation. To adjust to the different
values tap the P.S. BUTTON (23). The Pitch Select LED (23) will indicated
the current pitch level. Flashing red for +/-8%, off +/-12%, or glowing
solid red for +/-16%. Note, the pitch function must be activated for a
LED reading.
Figure 14
11. PITCH BEND:
This function will momentarily increase or decrease a tracks playback speed. Use the (-) & (+) PITCH BUTTONS (18) for this function. The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed is +/- 16%. The pitch bend function
will work in conjunction with the PITCH SLIDER (19) pitch setting. For example, if the PITCH SLIDER (19) is set
to a 2% pitch gain the pitch bending process will begin at 2% and will continue to the maximum of -/+16%
and then return to the original 2% pitch when the button is released.
PITCH BEND BUTTONS (18):
The (+) PITCH BEND BUTTON (18) will provide a speed bump and the (-) PITCH BEND BUTTON (18) will provide a slow down. The extent to which the speed changes is proportionate to the amount of time either button
is held down. For example, if the (+) PITCH BEND BUTTON (18) is held down continuously, the disc speed will
increases and will continue to increase until reaches a maximum of 16% speed gain. When you release the (+)
PITCH BEND BUTTON (18) the disc speed will automati ally return to it’s previous speed.
c
Holding down or tapping on the (+) PITCH BEND
BUTTON (18) will provide a speed bump in the
playback pitch.

FLIP-FLOP™
This feature is kind of “auto pilot." “Flip-Flop” mode can only function with the use of two CDS-1 units.
The “Flip-Flop” function may be used with or without an American Audio “Q” deck mixer, you can
have one unit begin playback when the other ends. You can “Flip Flop” single tracks, the entire disc,
a combination of the two, or you can even “Flip-Flop” your programmed tracks.
To FLIP-FLOP single tracks or programmed tracks:
1) Connect your system as described in the set up section on page 6.
2) Set your mixer’s crossfader to the center position.
3) Be sure your two units are single mode. SINGLE (39) should be indicated in the LCD (3).
4) Load your two CDS-1 with audio disc.
5) After they have both cued, press the PLAY/PAUSE BUTTON (8) on one of your drive to begin
playback.
6) After the first unit’s single track has ended the second unit’s track will immediately begin playback.
7) FLIP FLOP will continue until you stop it or power is interrupted.
To FLIP-FLOP entire CDs:
To FLIP-FLOP an entire disc, be sure both drives are in continuous play mode. The SINGLE ICON
(39) should not be displayed in the LCD (3). When both drives are in continuous play mode, follow the
directions for single track FLIP-FLOP as detailed above. When one the disc in one unit ends the other
unit will immediately begin playback.
Combining FLIP-FLOP modes:
Flip-Flop modes may combined. One unit may run in single mode and the other in continuous mode.
When the units are arranged in this fashion, the unit in single mode will play a single track and flip to
the next unit. The next unit will then play the entire disc and flip back to the other. The other will then
play the next track and flip back to the other unit, and so on.
Fader Q-Start™
This function works in conjunction with a compatible American Audio “Q-Start" DJ mixer. 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.
