During normal playback, pressing the TIME button (5) as in Figure 14, will change the time display information (26) in the LCD. The following is a break down of the time settings and their definitions: • Total Remain (34) ‐ This details the time in the LCD as the current CDs’ total remaining time. • Remain (34) ‐ details the time in the LCD as the current tracks’ remaining running time. • ELAPSED ‐ details the time in the LCD as the current tracks’ elapsed running time. The unit will indicate the elapsed time when neither the Total Remain or Remain indicators are showing. Note: When playing a MP3 disc the TOTAL time of a disc cannot be shown. Only the Remain Time and Elapsed time of the track. ©American Audio® ‐ www.americanaudio.eu UCD‐100™ User Manual Page 43 TIME BAR INDICATOR The time bar in the LCD visually details the time defined in the Time Meter (26). This bar is also dependant on the selected time function; Remain (34) or Total Remain (34). This bar will begin to flash when 15 seconds of a track remain and will begin to rapidly flash when three seconds of a track remain. The flashing bar is a great visual reminder a track is about to end. The flashing bar will function regardless of which time mode the unit is in. Figure 14 ©American Audio® ‐ www.americanaudio.eu UCD‐100™ User Manual Page 44 PITCH ADJUSTMENTS This function will increase or decrease the playback speed or "PITCH" of a track. The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed is +/‐16%. The Pitch Slider (8) is used to decrease or increase the playback pitch. If the slider is moved 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. ACTIVATING THE PITCH SLIDER (8) To activate the Pitch Slider (8), you must turn the pitch function on. Press the PITCH BUTTON (10) for at least 2 seconds to turn on the pitch function, when the pitch function is activated the PITCH LED (9) will begin to glow.

Down will increase the pitch and up will decrease the pitch. When the slider is in the center position, there is zero pitch being applied to a track. Figure 16 ©American Audio® ‐ www.americanaudio.eu UCD‐100™ User Manual Page 45 USING THE PITCH SLIDER PERCENTAGE SELECTOR (10)
You may choose a pitch operating range at any time. To change the operating range be sure the pitch function is turned on, see Figure 17. The pitch percentage can be changed between +/‐4%, +/‐8%, +/‐
16%, and 100%. 4% will allow the least amount of pitch manipulation and 100% will allow the most amount of pitch manipulation. To adjust the different values, press the Pitch ON/Off Button (10) and tap on the % button (10) until your desired value is reached. Figure 17 The LED of the % button (10) is glowing yellow for 4%, glowing green for 8%, or glowing red for 16%, and all LEDs glowing for 100%. PITCH BEND This function will momentarily increase or decrease a tracks playback speed using the (‐) & (+) Pitch Bend buttons (11). The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed is +/‐16%. The pitch bend function will work in conjunction with the Pitch Slider (8) pitch setting. For example, if the Pitch Slider (8) is set to a 2% pitch gain the pitch bending process will begin at 0% and will continue to the maximum of ‐/+16%. Pitch Bend Buttons (11) The (+) Pitch Bend button (11) will provide a speed bump and the (‐) Pitch Bend button (11) 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 (11) is held down continuously, the disc speed will increase and will continue to increase until it reaches a maximum of 16% speed gain. When you release the (+) Pitch Bend button (11) the disc speed will automatically return to it’s previous speed. ©American Audio® ‐ www.americanaudio.eu UCD‐100™ User Manual Page 46 (+) PITCH BEND BUTTON (11) Holding down or tapping on the (+) Pitch Bend button (11) will provide a speed bump in the playback pitch.

This directive, referred to as ROHS, is a frequently discussed topic in the electronic industry. It restricts, among other things, six materials: Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), hexavalent chromium (CR VI), cadmium (Cd), polybrimated biphenyls as flame retardant (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl, also a flame retardant (PBDE). The directive applies to nearly all electronic and electrical devices whose mode of operation involves electric or electromagnetic fields – in short: each kind of electronics we have around us in our households or at work. As manufacturers of products of the brands of AMERICAN AUDIO, AMERICAN DJ, ELATION Professional and ACCLAIM Lighting, we are obligated to comply with the RoHS directive. Therefore, as early as two years prior to the directive coming into force, we started our search for alternative environmentally friendly materials and manufacturing processes. Well before the RoHS directive took effect, all of our products were manufactured meeting the standards of the European Union. With regular audits and material tests we can still assure that the components we use are always RoHS‐compliant and that the manufacturing process, as far as the state of technology allows, is environmentally friendly. The ROHS directive is an important step to the protection of our environment. We, as manufactures, feel obligated to make our contribution in this respect. ©American Audio® ‐ www.americanaudio.eu UCD‐100™ User Manual Page 69 WEEE – WASTE OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT Every year thousands of tonnes of electronic components, which are harmful to the environment, end up at the waste disposals around the world. To ensure the best possible disposal or recovery of electronic components, the European Union has adopted the WEEE directive. The WEEE‐system (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) can be compared with the system of the “Green Spot”, which has been in use for several years. The manufactures have to make their contribution to the utilization of waste at the time they release the product. Money resources obtained by doing so will be applied to develop a common system of waste management. Thereby we can ensure professional and environmentally friendly scraping and recycling program. As manufactures, we are part of the German system of EAR and we make our contribution towards it. (Registration in Germany: DE41027552) That means that products of AMERICAN DJ and AMERICAN AUDIO can be left in the collection points free of charge and they will be used in the recycling program. Products of ELATION Professional, which are used only by professionals, shall be handled by us. Please send Elation products directly to us at the end of their lifetime so that we can professionally dispose of them. Like the above ROHS, the WEEE directive is an important contribution to the environment protection and we are glad to help to clean the environment with this disposal system.
