Unpacking Instructions
Immediately upon receiving this product, carefully unpack the carton and check the contents to ensure
that all parts are present, and have been received in good condition. Notify the dealer immediately and
retain packing material for inspection if any parts appear damaged from shipping or the carton itself
shows signs of mishandling. Save the carton and all packing materials. In the event that a fixture must be
returned to the factory, it is important that the fixture be returned in the original factory box and packing.
Your shipment includes:
•
DAP Core Kontrol D1
•
USB cable (1,75 m)
•
CD with Virtual DJ LE software
•
User manual
Safety Instructions
Every person involved with the installation, operation and maintenance of this system has to:
•
be qualified
•
follow the instructions of this manual
Before the initial start-up, please make sure that there is no damage caused by transportation. Should
there be any, consult your dealer and do not use the system.
To maintain perfect condition and to ensure a safe operation, it is absolutely necessary for the user to
follow the safety instructions and warning notes written in this manual.
Please consider that damages caused by manual modifications to the system are not subject to
warranty.
This system contains no user-serviceable parts. Refer servicing to qualified technicians only.

Never remove warning or informative labels from the unit.
Never leave any cables lying around.
Do not connect this system to a dimmerpack.
Do not switch the system on and off in short intervals, as this would reduce the system’s life.
Do not open the device and do not modify the device.
Do not drive the inputs with a signal level bigger, than required to drive the equipment to full output.
Only use system indoor, avoid contact with water or other liquids.
Avoid flames and do not put close to flammable liquids or gases.
Make sure you don’t use the wrong kind of cables or defective cables.
Extreme frequency boosts in connection with a high input signal level may lead to overdriving your
equipment. Should this occur, it is necessary to reduce the input signal level by using the INPUT
control.
To emphasize a frequency range, you don’t necessarily have to move its respective control upward;
try lowering surrounding frequency ranges instead. This way, you avoid causing the next piece of
equipment in your sound path to overdrive. You also preserve valuable dynamic reserve
(“headroom”)
Avoid ground loops! Always be sure to connect the power amps and the mixing console to the
same electrical circuit to ensure the same phase!
If system is dropped or struck, disconnect the power supply or USB cable immediately. Have a
qualified engineer inspect for safety before operating.
If the system has been exposed to drastic temperature fluctuation (e.g. after transportation), do not
switch it on immediately. The arising condensation water might damage your system. Leave the
system switched off until it has reached room temperature.
If your Dap Audio device fails to work properly, discontinue use immediately. Pack the unit securely
(preferably in the original packing material), and return it to your Dap Audio dealer for service.
Repairs, servicing and electric connection must be carried out by a qualified technician.
For replacement use fuses of same type and rating only.
Operating Determinations
This system is not designed for permanent operation. Consistent operation breaks will ensure that the
system will serve you for a long time without defects.
If this system is operated in any other way than the one described in this manual, the product may suffer
damages and the warranty becomes void.
Any other operation may lead to dangers like short-circuit, burns, electric shock, etc.
You endanger your own safety and the safety of others!
Improper installation can cause serious damage to people and property !

Core Kontrol D1
In the Sound Setup tab you can optimize the soundcard settings. We suggest using the settings below
which give you access to all outputs on your Kontrol D1. Other configurations can limit your outputs.
On the right side of the soundcard menu there are two drop down menus allowing you to choose
between two soundcards.
In the presented example, the first two channels of the Kontrol D4i’s internal soundcard are routed to the
master outputs and the remaining two channels are routed to the headphones output.
When setup correctly, press the Apply button and then press the OK button.
Make sure the Core Kontrol D1 is connected with your computer’s USB port and is switched on before
setting up your soundcards, otherwise you won’t be able to access your Kontrol D4i’s built in soundcards.
For more possibilities, we suggest reading the Virtual DJ Quick guide. You can download the Virtual DJ
Quick guide from: http://www.virtualdj.com/wiki/PDFManuals.html
