FADER “Q” START CONTROL: Set up your CK 800Mp3 as described in the set-up section of this manual. After set up is completed load your players. By moving the mixer’s crossfader from left to right you can start and pause
each players playback functions. For Example, when using the CK 800Mp3 player, 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 (2) will begin to play. When the crossfader is to the right, and you move it 20% to the left, player one (1) will begin to play. You can create great effects similar to scratching with this feature. After storing cue points on each side of the CD player, different songs may quickly be recalled by moving the mixer crossfader back and forth. New cue points can be easily selected on the CK 800Mp3 player (see setting cue points page 19). “Q” Start control is easy to use and mastering this feature will help you create amazing effects with your music.

Pitch adjustments
Pitch adjustments:
You can activate the PITCH SLIDER (4) by pressing the PITCH ON/OFF BUTTON (5). When the button LED is
lit, the PITCH SLIDER is active and the pitch can be adjusted. When the button LED is not lit PITCH SLIDER is
not active. The different pitch adjustments allow a track's or a loop's playback speed to be manipulated. This
speed manipulation is commonly used to beat match between two or more music sources such as a turntable
or another CD player. The playback speed may be increased or decreased by a factor of +/-16. The next section details the different pitch manipulation schemes.
1. PITCH SLIDER (4):
This function will increase or decrease the tracks playback speed or "PITCH."
The maximum pitch percentage manipulation in this function is +/-100%. The
PITCH SLIDER (4) 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.
The pitch SLIDER adjustment can be changed to range from +/-4%, +/-8%,
or +/-16% (See changing "PITCH SLIDER PERCENTAGE RANGE" on the next
page). This pitch adjustments will effect normal playback and loops only when
the Pitch On/Off Button (5) is turned on.
Figure 21
Activating the PITCH SLIDER (4): To activate the pitch slider you
must turn on the pitch adjustment function. Press the on/off button (5)
located at the top right of the unit. The on/off button (5) led will glow
when the function is activated. If the pitch function is not activated the pitch
slider will not function.
Figure 22
Using the PITCH SLIDER (4): Be sure the pitch function has been activated as described above. To use the pitch slider slide the slider up and
down. Down will increase the pitch and up will decrease the pitch.

Audio® - www.AmericanAudio.us - CK 800Mp3 Instruction Manual Page 22
Pitch adjustments
Adjusting the Pitch Slider's Range (6): You may change the
pitch slider's (5) operating range at any time. To change the operating range be sure the pitch function is turned on, see figure 33. The pitch
percentage can be changed between +/-4%, +/-8%, and +/-16%. 4% will
allow the least amount of pitch manipulation and 16% will allow the most
amount of pitch manipulation. To adjust the different ranges, press the
Pitch ON/Off Button (5) and tap on the pitch range button (6)
until your desired value is reached, see figure 24.
Figure 24
2. Pitch Bending:
Unlike the PITCH SLIDER (4) adjustment this function will momentarily increase or decrease a tracks speed
during playback. There are two ways to operate this function with the (-) & (+) pitch BEND buttons (7) or
with the jog wheel (9). The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed is +/- 16%. The pitch bend function
will work in conjunction with the PITCH SLIDER (4) pitch setting. For example, if the PITCH SLIDER (4) is set to
a 2% pitch gain the pitch bending process will begin at 2% and will continue to the maximum of +/- 16%.
Holding down or tapping on the (-)
PITCH BEND button (7) will provide
a slow down in the playback pitch.
Figure 25
Holding down or tapping on the (+)
PITCH BEND button (7) will provide
a speed bump in the playback pitch.
Figure 26
Pitch bend buttons (7):
The (+) PITCH BEND button (7) will increase track playback speed and the (-) PITCH BEND button (7) will
decrease track playback speed. 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 (7) is held down continuously as in figure
26, the disc speed will increases and will continue to increase until it reaches a maximum of 16% speed gain.
When you release the (+) Pitch bend button (7) the disc speed will automati ally return to it’s previous set
speed.

3. Jog wheel (9):
The jog wheel will temporarily bend the pitch if a track is in playback mode
Rotating the wheel in a clockwise direction will increase your track pitch and
rotating the wheel in a counter-clockwise direction will slow your track pitch.
The speed you rotate the JOG Wheel will determine pitch bend percentage
(%). For example, if the JOG Wheel is continuously turned in a counterclockwise direction the playback speed will steadily decrease and will continue to decrease until playback reaches a maximum of -100% and playback
stops entirely. When you stop turning the JOG Wheel the disc speed will
automatically return to it’s previous set speed.
