(a)FADER “Q” START CONTROL: This feature is used in conjunction with most American Audio® and American
DJ® audio mixers that also feature “Fader Q Start” control. For best results use this feature with two (2) CDI-500 Mp3™ players. Connect your Radius 1000 as described in the set-up section of this manual. After set up is com-
pleted load your players. By moving the mixer’s crossfader from left to right you can start and pause your CDI-500 Mp3™ playback functions. For Example, when using two (2) Radius 1000™ players 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 (2) will begin to play and player one (1) will return to cue mode. When the crossfader is to the right, and you move it 20% to the left, player one (1) will begin to play and player two (2) 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 Radius 1000™ player (see setting cue points page 17). “Q” Start control is easy to use and mastering this feature will help you create amazing effects
with your music. Note: For proper “Q” Start operation be sure your mixers “Hamster” setting are set to 1/2 (Normal Setting). Important: When Bank Button LED is flashing, the unit will return to the bank in point.
(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 (2) Radius 1000™ players. Connect your Radius 1000’s as described in the set-up section of this manual. This feature will start the next player once one (1) player has ended. For example, if player one (1) is playing a disc and it ends, player two (2) 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 38.
Important: When Bank Button LED is flashing, the unit will return to the bank in point.
(c)
MemorY Backup: The Radius 1000™ has a five (5) year memory back-up, that will save your setting in case the power supply is accidentally disconnected. Radius 1000™ will remember your last setting (SGL, CTN, and
effect parameters) even if you disconnect your main power. The Radius 1000™ will store your cue points and samples in memory if you accidentally eject a disc or shut off the power. See memory on page 26.
(d) Programmable Cue Points: The Radius 1000™ has three Bank Buttons (26). 500 Cue points can be stored in each of the Bank Buttons (26), for a total of 1500. These cue points can be stored into the unit's inter-
nal memory and may be recalled at any time. See setting "Cue Points" on page 20.
(e) SLEEP MODE: The Radius 1000'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.

GENERAL Functions and controls (Cont.)
A. Top unit controls (Figure 3)
1. EJECT FUNCTION - Pressing this will eject the CD. The eject function will only when the unit is in
cue or pause mode, this is to prevent accidentally ejecting the disc when in play mode.
2. VFD DISPLAY - This high quality VFD display indicates all the functions, as they are occurring.
The display ICONS will be explained in the section C.
3. PITCH SLIDER - This slider is used to adjust the playback pitch percentage. The slider is a set
adjustment and will remain set until the pitch slider is moved or the pitch function has been turned
off. This adjustment can be made with or without a disc in the drive. The pitch adjustment will remain
even if a disc has been removed and will reflect on any other disc loaded into the player. That is to
say, if you set a +2% pitch on one disc, remove that disc and load another, that disc too will have a
+2% pitch. The amount of pitch being applied will be displayed in the VFD (2).
4. MIDI BUTTON - Press this button to activate MIDI mode.
5. (-) PITCH BEND Button - The (-) pitch bend function creates a momentary “Slow Down” in the
CD’s BPM’s (Beats per minute) while it is playing. This will allow you to match the beats between
two playing CD’s or other playing music source. Remember, this is a momentary function. When you
remove your finger from the pitch button, the BPM’s will automatically return to Pitch slider's (3)
pitch value Holding down this button will give a maximum of -100% pitch. Use this function to slow
to another playing music source. Be sure to notice that this function is a momentary pitch adjustment,
for a more precise adjustment use the Pitch slider (3) to match the BPM’s with another playing
music source.
(+) PITCH BEND BUTTON - The (+) pitch bend function creates a momentary “BUMP” in the
CD’s BPM’s (Beats per minute) while it is playing. This will allow you to match the beats between two
playing CD’s or any other music source. Remember, this is a momentary function. When you remove
your finger from this button, the BPM’s will automatically return to the Pitch slider's (3) selected
pitch. Holding down this button will give a maximum of +100% pitch.
6. Pitch ON/OFF Button - This button is used to turn the Pitch slider (3) function on and off.
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
to the different values please see page 28.
7. TEMPO LOCK FUNCTION - This button activates the TEMPO LOCK function. This function allows
you to use the PITCH SLIDER to speed up or slow down playback speed without altering the tonal
pitch of the track. When this function is not engaged the original tonal pitch of the track will be altered
giving you the "chipmunk" effect when a track is played at a high rate of speed, or the "James Earl
Jones" effect when a track is slowed to much.
8. PITCH PERCENTAGE SELECTOR - Press this button to choose any pitch range percentages of
4%, 8%, 16%, and 100%. See page 29 for more details.
9. JOG WHEEL/EFFECTS PLATTER - This wheel has three functions;
A. The jog wheel will act as a frame search control when the CD is in pause or cue mode, allowing
you to set a cue point.
B. The wheel also works as a pitch bend during playback. Turning the wheel clockwise will increase
the pitch percentage up to 100%, and turning the wheel in the counter-clockwise direction will decrease the pitch percentage down to -100%. The pitch bend will be determined on how long you turn the jog wheel continuously.
C. The jog wheel can also be used in conjunction with the TIME (28) and RATIO (23) knobs to adjust

11. Using the Built In Sampler:
Your Radius 1000™ comes with an advanced built in sampler. You may store up to three samples in the three
Bank buttons (26). Once again please note you may only store either a CUE POINT or a SAMPLE into a
Bank button (26), not both. Your sample can be a maximum of 5.5 seconds in length. A sample can be
recalled while a CD is playing, while the CD drive is in PAUSE MODE, you may even play a sample when the CD
has been removed. You may play your sample at anytime without music interruption. If you play your sample
when the unit is already in playback mode your sample will over lap the current music source. You can also
play your sample once or in a continuous loop. As with cue points you may store approximately 1500 (500 x
3) samples in a drives memory (depending on available memory).
To create a sample:
1)Initialize a loop (see creating a seamless loop on page 21 and 22). If your loop is longer than 5.5 sec-
onds it can not be stored as a sample and will stored as a Cue Point.

Changing the Sample Parameters:
Changing the sample parameters allows you to change the sample's volume and pitch. A higher
value will increase the pitch percentage or volume. It's important to understand that the pitch value
is basically a speed adjustment and has nothing to do with tonal quality. The values can be either a
momentary change or set adjustment. The sample values are changed in three easy steps, while in
sample playback mode:
Changing the Sample Parameters - Speed
While a sample is playing push the PARAMETER time knob (28). One tap
will display a percentage in the VFD DISPLAY (2). Turning the knob in a
clockwise direction will increase your pitch. Turning the knob in a counterclockwise direction will decrease the parameters value.

Pitch adjustments
Pitch adjustments:
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 +/-100. The next section
details the different pitch manipulation schemes.
1. Pitch slider (3):
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 (3) 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%,
+/-16%, or +/-100% (See changing "PITCH SLIDER PERCENTAGE RANGE" on
the next page). The pitch adjustments will effect normal playback and loops only
when the PITCH ON/OFF BUTTON (6) is turned on. The pitch adjustments will
not affect your samples.
Figure 36
Activating the Pitch slider (3): To activate the Pitch slider (3) you must
turn on the pitch adjustment function. Press the PITCH on/off button (3)
to activate the slider. The on/off button (3) led will glow when the function is activated. If the pitch function is not activated the Pitch slider (3)
will not function.
Figure 37
Using the Pitch slider (3): Be sure the pitch function has been activated as
described above. To use the Pitch slider (3) slide the slider up and down.
Down will increase the pitch and up will decrease the pitch.
Figure 38

Audio® - www.AmericanAudio.us - Radius 1000™ Instruction Manual Page 28
Pitch adjustments
Adjusting the Pitch Slider's Range (8): You may change the
Pitch slider's (3) operating range at any time. To change the operating range be sure the pitch function is turned on, see figure 37. The pitch
percentage range 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 ranges, press the PITCH ON/OFF BUTTON (6) and tap on the pitch
range button (8) until your desired value is reached, see figure 39.
Figure 39
2. Pitch Bending:
Unlike the Pitch slider (3) 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 (5) or with
the jog wheel (9). The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed is +/- 100%. The pitch bend function will
work in conjunction with the Pitch slider's (3) pitch setting. For example, if the Pitch slider (3) is set to a
2% pitch gain the pitch bending process will begin at 2% and will continue to the maximum of +/- 100%.
NOTE: A -100% pitch manipulation will stop playback entirely.
Holding down or tapping on the (-)
PITCH BEND button (5) will provide
a slow down in the playback pitch.
Holding down or tapping on the (+)
PITCH BEND button (5) will provide
a speed bump in the playback pitch.
Figure 40
Figure 41
Pitch bend buttons (5):
The (+) PITCH BEND button (5) will increase track playback speed and the (-) PITCH BEND button (5) 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 (5) is held down continuously as in figure
41, the disc speed will increase and will continue to increase until it reaches a maximum of 100% speed gain.
When you release the (+) PITCH BEND button (5) the disc speed will automati ally return to it’s previous set
speed.

Audio® - www.AmericanAudio.us - Radius 1000™ Instruction Manual Page 29
Pitch adjustments
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 decrease 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
counter-clockwise 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 automati ally return to it’s previous set speed.
c
NOTE: To use the Jog Wheel in a pitch bend function when the
Scratch Effect (12) is activated you must use the outer rubber ring
of the jog wheel.
