Performance Pads
•
Holding SHIFT and pressing pads 1-8 will delete the Cue Points.
LOOP Mode: Pressing LOOP once for the first mode, is Manual Looping.
Pressing LOOP twice for the second mode enables Loop Roll Mode. Pressing
pads 1-8 will enable a loop roll for the time the pad is pressed, the loop will
exit once the pad is released. See the looping table for more infomation.
The SMPL, CUE and LOOP modes are able to be activated together in Dual
Mode. You can enable Dual Mode, by pressing two of these Performance Mode
buttons at the same time. This splits the 8 performance pads into two lots of 4,
allowing you to control two modes on the 8 pads.
For example: If you press CUE + LOOP Performance Mode buttons together, the
top 4 performance pads will act as Hot Cues, and the bottom 4 pads will act as
the first 4 Loop slots. This allows you the versitility of having two performance
modes active at the same time.
The performance pads have four different modes you can select. The four modes
are; SLICE, SMPL, CUE and LOOP.
•
•
•
SLICE Mode: A specified Slicer range (or domain) is divided into eight equal
sections, and these eight sliced sections are assigned to the respective
performance pads. Pressing SLICE once for the first mode, is a shifting Slicer
Domain. Pressing SLICE twice, for the second mode is a fixed Slicer Domain
or “slicer loop”.
SMPL Mode: Pads 1-6 Trigger Samples loaded in your Sample Banks. Press
and hold SMPL for 1 second or more to activate Sampler Velocity mode.
Triggering the pads will play the loaded samples acording to the velocity to
which the pads are struck. Holding SHIFT while pressing a pad will load the
highlighted track in the library to that associated sample slot.
CUE Mode: When pressing pads 1-8 you can add up to 8 Cue Points.
Looping
You have up to 8 loops per track in Serato DJ, and the choice between
either manual or auto loops. You can choose whether you have 4 loops (and
4 cuepoints) showing on screen, or 8 loops. To switch between Manual and
Auto looping, click
(Manual) or
(Auto) onscreen. You can also
half or double the loop length in either manual or auto modes. Press the
1/2X button onscreen to half the loop length, hold the 2X button to double
the loop length, or you can use the Loop Size knob on the controller to do
the same.

MIDI and setup button in the top right hand corner of the screen. Tool Tips

you control Beat Jump from on your supported Serato DJ hardware.
Move the mouse over a section of the screen to bring up a context sensitive
tool tip. Holding the mouse over the
button with Tool Tips turned on
will show you a list of all keyboard shortcuts.

www.serato.com or refer to the Serato DJ Software Manual.

When the Beat Jump option is enabled, controllers with 8
performance pads that have an AUTO LOOP or LOOP ROLL mode
will use the bottom row of 4 pads (pads 5-8) as Beat Jump controls.
This is designed to mirror the change in deck Auto Loop area (from
8 Auto Loop sizes to 4 Auto Loop sizes + Beat Jump controls).
