(a) FADER “Q” START CONTROL: This feature is used in conjunction with American Audio® mixers that also feature “Fader
Q Start” control. Connect your DIGI-PRO’s as described in the set-up section of this manual. After set-up is completed, insert
CD's in to both drives. By moving the mixer’s crossfader from left to right you can start and pause your DIGI-PRO playback
functions. For Example, 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. After storing cue points on each side of the CD
player, different songs or samples may quickly be recalled by moving the mixer crossfader back and forth. New cue points can
be easily selected on the DIGI-PRO player (see setting cue points page 13). “Q” Start control is easy to use and mastering
this feature will help you create amazing effects with your music. Note for mixers with a Hamster Feature: For proper “Q” Start
operation be sure your mixers “Hamster” setting are set to 1/2 (Normal Setting).
(b) BOP EFFECT: The Bop Effect button serves two features. First, it is a stutter effect, creating a sound similar to a sampler.
Second, it will return to the last Cue point in memory instantly. This will allow you to create great effects. To create the
BOP Effect, see BOP Effect on page 22.
(c) 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 DIGI-PRO players. Connect your DIGI-PRO’s as described in the set-up 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.
(d) 60 SECOND TRANSPORT PROTECTION: The CD transport tray will automatically close if left open for more than 60
seconds. If a CD is left in the tray it will immediately cue.
(e) SLEEP MODE: The DIGI-PRO’s laser and pick-up assembly will power down after 15 minutes of inactivity (when in
pause or cue mode). This will lengthen the life of your motor drive and laser. To initialize the player, just press the cue
or play buttons.
(f) MEMORY BACKUP: The DIGI-PRO has a five year memory back-up, that will save your setting in case the power
supply is accidentally disconnected. DIGI-PRO will automatically remember your last setting (repeat, SGL, CTN) even if
you disconnect your main power.. The DIGI-PRO will store your cue points in memory if you accidentally open transport
tray or shut off the power. Note: Memory cues are erased automatically when a new CD is played, or by holding memory
button down for 5 seconds.
(g) JOG WHEEL PITCH BEND: During normal playback, the inner jog wheel acts as a momentary pitch bend. Turing
the wheel in a clockwise direction will increase the speed and turning the wheel in a counter-clockwise direction will
decrease the speed.
(h) SCRATCH BOX COMPATIBLE: This feature is used in conjunction with the American Audio® Scratch Box.™ mixers that
also feature “Fader Q Start” control. When the DIGI-PRO is used in conjunction with the Scratch Box a turntable may be used
to control the CD functions. See Scratch Box on page 25.

11. 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 19). The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed is +/-16%. The PITCH
SLIDER (21) 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 (23) adjustment can be changed to range from +/-8%, +/-12%, or +/-16%
(See changing "PITCH SLIDER PERCENTAGE RANGE" figure 19/page 20). The pitch adjustments will effect
playback, reverse playback, and loops.
Activating the Pitch Slider (23): To activate the PITCH SLIDER
(23), turn the pitch function on. Press the PITCH BUTTON (7) to turn
on the pitch function, when the pitch function is activated a LED will
begin to glow (or flash depending on what pitch percentage value is
selected, see changing pitch values on page 18). If the pitch function
is not activated neither the PITCH SLIDER (23) nor the PITCH BEND
BUTTONS (15 & 16) will not function.
Figure 12
Using the Pitch Slider (21): To use the PITCH SLIDER (23) slide
the slider up and down. Down will increase the pitch and up will
decrease the pitch. When the slider is in the center position, a green
LED just left of the slider will glow. When this slider LED is glowing
there is zero pitch being applied to a track.
Figure 13
Adjusting the Pitch Slider's Range (21): You may change the PITCH
SLIDER'S (23) operating range. To change the operating range be sure
the pitch function is turned on, see figure 17. 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.SELECT BUTTON (8). The LED beside the PITCH BUTTON (7)
will indicate which pitch percentage mode the unit is operating in.
Glowing green for +/-8%, glowing orange for +/-12%, or glowing red
for +/-16%. Note, the pitch function must be activated to receive a
LED reading.

12. PITCH BEND:
This function will momentarily increase or decrease a tracks playback speed. There are two ways to operate
this function with the (-) & (+) PITCH BUTTONS (25) or with the JOG WHEEL (19). The maximum pitch bend
percentage allowed is +/- 16%. The pitch bend function will work in conjunction with the PITCH SLIDER
(23) pitch setting. The PITCH SLIDER (23) adjustment can be changed to range from +/-8%, +/-12%, or
+/-16% (See changing "PITCH SLIDER PERCENTAGE RANGE" on page 16). For example, if the PITCH
SLIDER (23) is set to a 2% pitch gain the pitch bending process will begin at 2% and will continue to
the maximum of -/+16%.
PITCH BEND BUTTONS (15 & 16):
The (+) PITCH BEND BUTTON (15 & 16) will provide a speed bump and the (-) PITCH BEND BUTTON (15)
will provide a slow down. 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 (16) is held down continuously, the disc speed
will increases and will continue to increase until reaches a maximum of 100% speed gain. When you release
the (+) PITCH BEND BUTTON (16) the disc speed will automati ally return to it’s previous speed.
c
Holding down or tapping on the (+) PITCH
BEND BUTTON (16) will provide a speed
bump in the playback pitch.
