ENGLISH
18. Jog Wheel
Your CD player features an extra large Jog Wheel for a true vinyl-like operation. This is generally
divided into two sections for scratch applications. The top section is touch sensitive and responds to
the body‘s own electricity - similar to a vinyl record on the turntable. The outer rubberised ring has
been designed for pitch bending - similar to the edge of a turntable‘s platter. If the Scratch function
-27- has been deactivated, the entire Jog Wheel also works as a Search and Pitch Bend wheel. By
turning clockwise and counterclockwise while in Cue and Pause mode, you can frame-search precisely (1/75 min.) for a Cue Point. While in Play mode, use the Jog Wheel, similar to a turntable, for pitch
bending (during deactivated Scratch -27-). This is a quick increase (push start) or decrease (stop) of
the pitch. The faster the Jog Wheel is turned, the quicker the change of pitch. The same effect can
be achieved with the Pitch Bend Buttons -24-. Also, the Jog Wheel can be used with the help of the
Time and Ratio Buttons -25/26- to modulate and set effects and samples. For this, read more on the
individual effects -28 to 35- in the chapter entitled „Sampling“.
20.Pitch Range Button
Press the Pitch Range Button -20- to select between a pitch range of +/- 4%, +/-8%, +/-16% or +/100%.
21. Key Lock Button
When activating the Key Lock function with the button -21- the track‘s original tone pitch, regardless
of the set pitch, is maintained. Press the button a second time to deactivate the Key Lock function.
22.Pitch Fader
Use the Pitch Fader -22- to infinitely change the pitch of the track within the selected range. The
difference from the original pitch is shown on the display -11F- in percent. Adjustments in the +/-4
%, +/- 8% and +/-16% pitch ranges are effected in steps of 0,02% and in the +/- 100% pitch range
in steps of 0,1%.
NOTE!
These steps can only be shown with one position after decimal point on the display -11 F-. The
accurate value will temporarily appear on the display -11 J- when using the pitch fader.
23. Pitch On/Off Button
De-/Activate the Pitch Fader using the Pitch On/Off Button -23-.
35
IM_RMP3_GB.indd 35
03.11.2009 09:18:37
24. Pitch Bend Buttons
Use the Pitch Bend buttons -24- to briefly change the pitch of the respective track by +4/8/16% (+
button), or by -4/8/16% (- button) by holding it. Release the button for the player to return to the
pitch set with the Pitch Fader.
25.Parameter Time Button
Use the Parameter Time Button to modulate a chosen effect or a sample (beat frequency, pitch).
>>For more information read about the individual effects -28 to 35- or go to the chapter entitled
„Sampling“.
NOTE:
The last activated effect or sample is always assigned to the parameter.
26.Parameter Ratio Button
Modulate a chosen effect or a sample with the help of the Parameter Ratio Button. (intensity)
>>For more information read about the individual effects -28 to 35- or go to the chapter entitled
„Sampling“.
ENGLISH
NOTE:
The last activated effect or sample is always assigned to the parameter.
27. Scratch Button (Vinyl mode)
Select the Scratch effect by pressing the Scratch Button -27-. Then scratch the track while in Play
mode with the top section of the Jog Wheel -18- like a vinyl record, by moving it forward and backward and holding it. The Jog Wheel recognises the touch of your fingers. Press the Scratch Button a
second time to deactivate the Scratch effect.
NOTES:
•When pressing and holding the Scratch Button for more than 2 seconds, the „Scratch-to-Cue“
mode is activated. If only the Jog Wheel is touched, the player instantly returns to the Cue
Point without changing into the Pause or Playback mode. This is how to scratch a track from
the desired Cue Point. Press the Scratch Button a further time to deactivate the Scratch mode.
•Personalise your preferred Jog Wheel sensitivity. Proceed as detailed in the chapter „Submenu“.
•Hold the Shift Button and press the Scratch Button until the LED blinks. This enables the Sample Scratch mode.
28.Skid Button
Select the Skid effect by first activating the Skid Button -28-. Press the Hold Button -31- to maintain
the set parameters.
>> for more details go to item 31
The „Hold“ LED is illuminated. Now use the Jog Wheel -18- and the Time Parameter Button -25- to
set the start time and in combination with the Ratio Parameter Button -26- the stop time of the
player, each in steps of 0 – 9990 mSec.
NOTE:
To set the start or stop time to match the beat, press the respective Beat Link Buttons -36-; select between 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1/1, 2/1 und 4/1 beat(s). The respective LED is illuminated.
When pressing the Play/Pause Button -2- to change into Pause mode, the player stops at the set
speed until it comes to a standstill. When pressing the Play/Pause Button to change into Play
mode, the Player runs at the set speed until the speed set with the Pitch Fader -22- has been
reached. Use this function to simulate the renowned fade-out effect of a turntable. Press the Skid
Button a second time to deactivate the Skid effect.
29. Filter Button
Use the Filter Button -29- to deactivate a band pass filter which permits playing at a certain frequency.
Your device synchronises the effects automatically for the current BPM value. Use the Beat Link
Buttons -36- to adjust the frequency to match the beat.
To manually change the beat frequency of the effect, press the Parameter Time Button -25- and
regulate the frequency mean of the Jog Wheel (von 0 - 9990 mSec.). To influence the intensity of
the effect, press the Parameter Ratio Button -26- and adjust the volume with the Jog Wheel (from
0 – 255).
36
IM_RMP3_GB.indd 36
03.11.2009 09:18:37
NOTE:
As soon as the Time or Ratio Buttons are activated, the Scratch mode is temporarily deactivated.
TIP:
To create a great filter sweep effect, set the Time Parameter value to „0“ mSec. and activate
„Hold“. Use the Parameter Ratio Button and the Jog Wheel to infinitely filter the frequency of
your track from the value „0“ (High Pass Filter) to the value of „255“ (Low Pass Filter).
30.Phase Button
Use the Phase Button -30- to activate the phase effect. Although similar to a flanger, it emphasises
the upper pitch less and sounds slightly more harmonious.
Your device synchronises the effects automatically with the current BPM. Use the Beat link Buttons
-36- to modify the frequency to match the beat. To manually change the beat frequency of the effect, press the Parameter Time Button -25- and regulate the frequency value using the Jog Wheel
(von 0 - 9990 mSec.). To influence the intensity of the effect, press the Parameter Ratio Button -26and set the volume with the Jog Wheel (from 0 – 255).
NOTE:
As soon as the Time or Ratio Buttons have been activated, the Scratch mode is temporarily
deactivated.
31. Hold Button
When activating the Hold function with the button -31- your player maintains the set effect frequency. Otherwise, the effect value always returns to the original value.
32.Echo Button

SAMPLING
This chapter details the possibilities and settings of the mighty on-board sampler of your device.
A loop is the permanent repetition of a sequence between a chosen loop starting point and a chosen loop
ending point. Select a loop starting point by pressing the Loop In Button -12-. Select the loop ending point
by pressing the Loop Out Button -13-. The player goes automatically into Loop mode and the Reloop display flashes. The sequence thus chosen is seamlessly replayed until the Loop Out Button - 13- is pressed a
second time. The player seamlessly goes into Play mode. To prompt the last played loop against, press the
Reloop Button -14-. The player goes automatically into Loop mode.
ENGLISH
Auto Loop Function:
Hold the Shift Button -46- and push one of the Beat Link Buttons -36- in order to set an Auto Loop. Depending on the chosen bar you can choose between 7 different bar lengths (1/8 – 4/1). The more precise the
BPM recognition the better the Auto Loop will function. In order to manually analyse the BPM value use
the Tap Button -38-. In order to leave the loop push the Loop-Out Button -13-.
NOTE:
•The player saves this loop for the current track only. When changing to a different track, no loop is
stored.
•The currently saved loop starting point (set with the Loop In Button -12-) is also the current Cue Point.
When saving a new Cue Point, after saving a Loop and exiting the Loop mode, this overwrites the current starting point. The re-loop display goes off and no loop is saved anymore.
•You have four sample banks available, each of 5 seconds. To record a sample, set a loop as described
above using the Loop In and Loop Out Buttons. Then press the Memory Button -16- and then one of the
four Memory Buttons -15- The loop thus set is now saved in the chosen sample bank and the Memory
Button goes off. To play a sample, first press the Sampler Button -17-. Then press the desired one of the
four memory buttons. The Sampler plays the sample from the chosen bank in an endless loop (Endless
mode). Press the Sample Button once again to play the sample only once (One Shot mode). To end
playing the sample, press the Sample Button again. The light goes off.
NOTE:
•When in Sampler mode, playing a sample is activated independently from CD play. In Play mode the
current track can also be heard as the sample. In Cue and Pause mode, only the sample can be heard.
•Edit the saved loops with the help of the Parameter Time and Ratio Buttons while in Sampler mode.
Use the Parameter Time Buttons to change the pitch of the loop (from -100% to +100%). Use the
Parameter Ratio Button to vary the volume of the sample (from 0 - 255 max.). The player saves the
samples set in this manner until they are overwritten by new ones or the device is switched off. Even
when changing the track or the CD, the saved samples are stored. The button of an assigned Sample
bank is always lit blue if the assigned (= sample‘s own) CD has been inserted. If a different CD is inserted (= non-sample) the respective button lights up in red. The button of the last assigned sample bank
also flashes in the respective colour. A sample bank is overwritten when new samples are recorded.
The four sample banks are also Hot Cue Point memories. When pressing the button of a sample bank
without previously having activated the Memory button or the Sample button, the Player returns while
in Play mode as well as in Pause mode to the beginning of the respective sample. This function is only
available for CDs of samples or with sample banks that are illuminated in blue.
NOTES:
•If you wish to lastingly save the set Cue Points / Samples, press the Memory Button -16- for two seconds. The display reads „Saving“. This means that the Cue Points / Samples of the CD‘s own sample
will be maintained even after switching the device off. It is possible to lastingly store for up to 500
CDs four cue points or samples. To prompt the saved Cue Points / Samples of a CD again, press the
Memory Button -16- BEFORE inserting the CD. The display reads „Recall“. Now insert the CD and the
previously stored Cue Points/Samples are automatically loaded. The respective storage banks flash
blue and are ready for play.
•To completely delete the Cue Point / Sample Bank memory, first switch off the device with the ON/
OFF switch -44-. Then turn the Search Wheel -5- counter-clockwise until the point of resistance and
hold it in this position. Switch the device on with the ON/OFF switch. Release the Search Wheel again
as soon as the display reads „Clear all“.

Connecting Several RMP-3 Players
If you would like to connect several RMP-3 players (e.g. in order to control DJ software) the following
possibilities are suggestive:
• Two RMP-3 in use with TRAKTOR PRO
The RMP-3 mapping implemented in TRAKTOR PRO is layed out for channel 1 - 4 (Channel 1 = Deck
A, Channel 2 = Deck B, Channel 3 = Deck C, channel 4 = Deck D). When using two players you should
adjust player 1 via the Reverse/Deck Switch Button to „DeckA CH1“ for Deck A. For Deck B the player
should be switched to DeckB CH2.
This way the left player 1 controls Deck A and the right player 2 controls Deck B. It is suggestive
to assign a hardware ID to each player which can be adjusted in the submenu under B > MIDI Set >
Name. Please also refer to the TRAKTOR assignment draft in this manual.
• Connecting Several RMP-3 Players
When using several RMP-3 players in order to control a software it is possible to
a) under B > MIDI Set > Name to assign a hardware ID to single players
b) under D > MIDI Channel to assign a channel preset to the single players (altogether 4 presets, 4
channels each).
Submenu
By pushing the Time Button -7- and the Track Wheel -4- simultaneously you enter the submenu. By
pushing the Track Wheel again you will enter the corresponding submenu.
2. Playlist
If the Database Builder has been carried out for the USB drive it is possible to adjust various criteria
in order to filter tracks in this menu.
Normal:
This is the default setting. The tracks are played corresponding to the established data structure.
Title:
If this criterion is selected it is possible to alphabetically navigate through the title names by pushing
the Folder Search Buttons -6-. By turning the Track Wheel -4- it is possible to continuously and alphabetically browse through the title structure.
ENGLISH
