÷ Even if the BEAT EFFECTS lever switch
is moved from [ON] to [OFF], the
feedback sound or TAP delay sound will
continue.
÷ In the BPM mode, if the DEPTH dial is
set to [MAX] and the BEAT EFFECTS
lever switch is moved from [ON] to
[OFF], a hold-delay effect will be
produced without attenuating the
feedback sound (near the [MAX] setting,
the sound level rises).
In the RHYTHM mode, when the switch
is turned [OFF] the effect will end with
the final TAP delay sound for the
original sound.

LINK has its effecter link set to ON (EFX LINK).
÷ Cancel the EFX LINK, and disconnect any
digital input with priority over analog
inputs.
The order of priority of inputs is:
EFX LINK > Digital input > Analog input.
Digital signals aren’t output.
÷ EFX LINK is connected to DJ mixer (DJM1000) via digital link cable.
÷ If EFX LINK is connected to DJ mixer (DJM1000) via digital link cable, ordinary digital
signals are not output.
Disconnect the digital link cable.
÷ Set the digital output fs to match the
connected component.
÷ The digital output fs setting does not match
the connected component.
When set to BYPASS, analog
signals aren’t output.
÷ No analog inputs are connected.
Even if a digital input or EFX LINK is
connected, analog inputs are output as analog
during BYPASS mode.
÷ Use analog signals for input. Or use digital
output. Outputs when BYPASS is selected
are as follows:
Input

OTHER (TROUBLESHOOTING)
Symptom
Probably cause
Remedy
When a foot switch is connected,
effects are applied even without
pressing the foot switch.
÷ Foot switch’s logic is reversed (the effector
applies effects when the foot switch is
depressed for LOW level).
÷ Use a foot switch with logic matching that
of the effector.
Effect sounds are distorted.
÷ Input level is too high.
÷ Rotate INPUT LEVEL dial toward left ([MIN]
direction).
÷ Try setting IN&OUT LEVEL switch to the
opposite position.
÷ Rotate EFFECT OUT LEV. dial toward left
([MIN] direction).
÷ Rotate DEPTH dial toward left ([MIN]
direction).
÷ Effect output level is too high.
÷ Effect settings are too high (When the DEPTH
dial is set near its [MAX] position, it may have
the effect of raising the volume level.)
Can’t use EFX LINK function
÷ The digital link cable is not connected.
÷ The connected component is not supported.
÷ The DJ mixer’s settings are incorrect
÷ Connect the digital link cable to a DJ mixer
(with digital link support)
÷ Set the DJ mixer for EFX LINK.
Can’t use the BPM sync function.
÷ DJ mixer is not connected for EFX LINK.
÷ A DJ CD player with digital link support is not
connected to the DJ mixer.
÷ The BPM measurement mode is not set to
[AUTO].
÷ Connect the DJ CD player and DJ mixer via
digital link.
Echo sounds are output
continuously
÷ During echo effect, if DEPTH dial is set to
[MAX] and BEAT EFFECTS lever switch is
moved from [ON] to [OFF], the feedback
sound dies not attenuate, producing a hold
delay effect.
÷ Rotate DEPTH dial toward the left ([MIN]
direction).
BPM doesn’t count tempo in
AUTO mode.
BPM count is strange.
÷ Input level is too high, or too low.
÷ Rotate INPUT LEVEL dial so that the input
level meter shows around 0 dB.
÷ Set to manual mode and input (TAP) the
tempo manually (P.18)
MIDI sequencer isn’t
synchronized.
÷ The MIDI sequencer’s sync mode is not set to
“slave”.
÷ The connected MIDI sequencer is not
supported.
÷ Some tracks have tempos that prevent them
from being measured automatically. (Automatic
measurement range is 70-180 BPM).
÷ Set the DJ effector’s BPM mode to [AUTO].
÷ Set MIDI sequencer’s sync mode to
“slave.”
÷ A MIDI sequencer without MIDI timing
clock cannot be synchronized.
÷ This component may fail to operate properly due effects from static electricity or other causes. In this event, try
disconnecting the power cord and reconnecting it. If this doesn’t solve the problem, consult your dealer or nearest
Pioneer Service Station.

We Want You Listening For A Lifetime
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit
you’ve just purchased is only the start of your
musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how
you can maximize the fun and excitement your
equipment offers. This manufacturer and the
Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer
Electronics Group want you to get the most out of
your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that
lets the sound come through loud and clear without
annoying blaring or distortion-and, most importantly,
without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing
“comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound.
So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and
harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by
setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your
hearing adapts.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will
provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since
hearing damage from loud noise is often
undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer
and the Electronic Industries Association’s
Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid
prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of
sound levels is included for your protection.
Decibel
Level Example
30
40
50
60
70
80
Quiet library, soft whispers
Living room, refrigerator, bedroom away from traffic
Light traffic, normal conversation, quiet office
Air conditioner at 20 feet, sewing machine
Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant
Average city traffic, garbage disposals, alarm clock
at two feet.
THE FOLLOWING NOISES CAN BE DANGEROUS
UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.
90 Subway, motorcycle, truck traffic, lawn mower
100 Garbage truck, chain saw, pneumatic drill
120 Rock band concert in front of speakers,
thunderclap
140 Gunshot blast, jet plane
180 Rocket launching pad
Once you have established a comfortable sound
level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.

Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent
hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we
want you listening for a lifetime.
