• Mobile metal controller: a large mixer (40x25cm) with included carry bag
• 2 large jog wheels with touch detection
• Jog wheel size: 12cm diameter (4.7") x 1.9cm height (0.75")
• Weight sensors, to detect the hand's weight on the jog wheel top
• Great for scratching and seeking within audio tracks

2-deck & 4-deck control

VIRTUAL DJ7 LE included: 4-deck DJ mixing software

Technical specifications:
• Large jog wheels with touch detection
• Same size as jog wheels on CD players
• 12cm (4.7") diameter: as large as a compact disc.
• 1.9cm (0.75") height: as comfortable as on a CD player.
• 2 large jog wheels you can't miss.

Touch detection via weight sensors
• Weight sensors detect the user's touch by detecting the hand's weight, to activate scratch mode.

Detection of the hand's weight activating the jog wheels' touch control is:
- natural: like on vinyl turntables and high-end CD players.
- secure: no disturbance from static electricity.
- intuitive: no need to calibrate.

Press down
The hand's weight moves the jog wheels down by 1mm:
- press the jog wheel down: you feel that you're scratching.
- move your hand up: you feel that you've released the jog wheel.

Jog wheels' control over the DJ software
While the track plays, you control the DJ software with 2 actions on the jog wheel:
- rotation, to control movement within the track.
- press down to control scratching.

Thus, during audio track playback:
- Rotation without jog wheel press = pitch bend (like when you turn a turntable's ring).
- Rotation with jog wheel press = scratch (like when you turn a vinyl record with your hand flat on the record).
- No rotation with jog wheel press = stop playback (like when you stop a vinyl record's rotation with your hand).
- No rotation without jog wheel press = playback continues.

Jog wheel accuracy
Rotation: 256 steps per revolution = 1.4 degrees per step.
Press down: <1mm travel.

Powerful DJ control surface!

- a deck switch button on the left deck converts deck A into C / deck C into A.
- a deck switch button on the right deck converts deck B into D / deck D into B.

Once a deck is switched:
- all of the commands that the deck's controls send to the DJ software are changed.
- the letter of the active deck is highlighted in the center of the mixer.

Audio for mobile and club DJs
• 2 stereo outputs
• 2 independent stereo outputs on the rear panel:
- 4 RCA connectors to connect to a stereo system, a recorder...
- 4 mono connectors in '' jack format, to connect to a public address amplifier or speakers.

A ground lift switch on jack outputs 1-2, to protect the sound in the event of a ground loop.

1 headphones '' jack stereo output, located both on the top panel and on the front panel.

The headphones play the same channels as outputs 3-4 on the rear panel.

The 2 ways of using DJ Console 4-Mx's audio outputs are:
For a mix inside DJ Console 4-Mx:
- connect the speakers/amplifier to outputs 1-2, to play the mix for your audience.
- connect headphones to one of the 2 headphone outputs (front or top), to preview tracks.
For an external mix (using an external mixer - VirtualDJ Pro (not included) or other DJ software required):
- connect DJ Console 4-Mx outputs 1-2 to inputs 1-2 on the external mixer.
- connect DJ Console 4-Mx outputs 3-4 to inputs 3-4 on the external mixer.
- mix on the external mixer, and connect headphones to the external mixer.
- use DJ Console 4-Mx to control the virtual decks.

2 stereo inputs
2 independent stereo inputs via 4 RCA connectors:
- Select the audio source type in the DJ Console 4-Mx control panel: phono/consumer line/pro line/boost.
- Boost mode supports +8dBu signal level (for use with Pioneer CDJ players, for example).
- If the audio sources are vinyl turntables at phono level, connect the turntables' ground cables to the DJ Console 4-Mx's grounding screw.

1 microphone '' jack mono input, located on both the top panel and the front panel.

The microphone input can be set:
- as a talk-over source (default mode): the microphone is played on outputs 1-2 over the music in the background, using the music attenuation level set in the DJ Console 4-Mx control panel (0dB, -3dB, -6dB or -9dB).
- or as a standard source, replacing inputs 1-2.
DJ Console 4-Mx pre-amplifies the microphone input by up to +34dB.
