(a) FADER “Q” START CONTROL: This feature is used in conjunction with American Audio® mixers that feature “Fader
Q-Start” control. Connect your SDJ-1 as described in the set-up section of this manual. After set up is completed
load SDs into both players. By moving the mixer’s crossfader from left to right you can start and pause the SDJ-1™
playback functions. For Example, if the mixer’s crossfader is all the way to the left (player one is playing and 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 SD player, different songs or loops may quickly be recalled
by moving the mixer crossfader back and forth. New cue points can be easily selected on the SDJ-1™ player (see
setting cue points page 16). “Q” Start control is easy to use and mastering this feature will help you create amazing
effects with your music.

pitch adjustments
Pitch adjustments:
The different pitch adjustments allow a track's or a loop's playback speed to be manipulated. This
speed manipulations is commonly used to beat match between two or more music sources such as
a turntable or another SD 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 (5):
This function will increase or decrease the
tracks playback speed or "PITCH." The maximum pitch percentage manipulation in this
function is +/-16%. The pitch SLIDER (5) is
used to decrease or increase the playback
pitch. If the slider is move 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 (5) adjustment can be changed to
range from +/-4%, +/-8%, or +/-16% (See
changing "PITCH SLIDER PERCENTAGE
RANGE" on the next page). The PITCH
SLIDER (5) will only effect normal playback
and loops when the PITCH SLIDER (5) is active.
Figure 34
Activating the Pitch slider (5): To activate the pitch slider (5) you must
turn on the pitch adjustment function. To
activate the PITCH SLIDER (5) press the
PITCH PERCENTAGE BUTTON (14). The
PITCH indicator will be displayed in
the LCD, when the function is activated.
If the pitch function is not activated the
pitch slider (5) will not function.
Figure 35
Using the Pitch slider (5): Be sure the
pitch function has been activated as described above. To use the pitch slider
(5) slide the slider up and down. Down will
increase the pitch and up will decrease the
pitch.

Audio® - www.americanaudio.us - SDJ-1™ Instruction Manual Page 23
PITCH ADJUSTMENTS (Cont.)
Using the Pitch Slider Percentage
Selector (14): 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 35. 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 values, press
the Pitch percentage Button (14) for
2 seconds to change the percentage, until
your desired percentage is reached.
Figure 37
2. Pitch Bending:
Unlike the Pitch slider (5) adjustment this function will momentarily increase or decrease a tracks
speed during playback. There are two ways to operate this function with the (-) & (+) pitch buttons
(15) or with the JOG WHEEL (20). The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed by pitch buttons
(15) is +/-16%. The maximum pitch bend percentage allowed by JOG WHEEL (20) is +/-100%.The
pitch bend function will work in conjunction with the Pitch slider (5) pitch setting. For example, if
the pitch slider (5) is set to a 2% pitch gain the pitch bending process will begin at 2% and will
continue to the maximum of +/-16%.
NOTE: A -100% pitch manipulation will stop playback entirely. This can only be done with JOG
WHEEL (20).
3. Pitch bend buttons (15):
The (+) PITCH BEND button (15) will increase track playback speed and the (-) PITCH BEND button (15) 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 (15) is
held down continuously as in Figure 39, the speed will increases and will continue to increase until
it reaches the percentage the PITCH PERCENTAGE BUTTON (14) is set to. When you release the (+)
Pitch bend button (15) the speed will automatically return to it’s previous set speed.
Holding down on the (-) PITCH BEND button (15) will provide a slow down in the playback pitch.
Figure 38
Holding down on the (+) PITCH BEND
button (15) will provide a speed bump in
the playback pitch.

4. JOG WHEEL (20):
The jog wheel (20) will temporarily bend the pitch if a track is in playback mode, and the SEARCH
MODE BUTTON (1) is not active. 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. If the JOG
Wheel (20) is continuously turned in a counter-clockwise direction the playback speed will steadily
decreases and will continue to decrease until playback reaches a maximum of -100%. When you stop
turning the JOG Wheel (20) the speed will automatically return to it’s previous set speed.
