11. Matching the Beats Per Minute (BPM)
With the unit, there are two ways to adjust the playing speed and match the BPMs of the two CDs:
• Use the pitch slider to adjust the BPM statically.
• Use the PITCH BEND buttons to change the BPM temporarily.
1) Pitch Slider
• To adjust the BPM by sliding the pitch slider up or down, press the PITCH button to turn on the
PITCH adjustment function before use.
• The BPM decreases when the pitch slider is moved upward and increases when the pitch slider is
moved downward. The adjustment range is +/- 10%.
2) Pitch Bending
• The BPM increases or decreases respectively while the PITCH BEND+ or PITCH BEND- button is
pressed.
• The BPM increase depends on how long you hold the button. If you hold the button for about 1/2
second, the BPM will go either to +16% for PITCH BEND+ or -16% for PITCH BEND-. If you tap
the button, the BPM will only change a little so you can change the beat slightly without audible
changes in the music.
• The CD will return to the tempo indicated by the Pitch slider when you let go of the PITCH BEND
+ or -.
• Figure 15 shows an example of how
to use the pitch bend function. In this
example, both players are playing
and the BPM has already been
matched with the pitch sliders.
