• Large jog wheels with pressure 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.
Pressure detection via weight sensors:
• Weight sensors detect the user's pressure 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 and the hand's weight moves the jog wheels down by 0.8mm:
• 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 pressing on jog wheels = pitch bend (like when you turn a turntable's ring).
-Rotation with pressure on jog wheel = scratch (as when turning a vinyl record with 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: travel below 1mm.
- 2-deck control
• DJ Console 4-Mx Black controls 2 decks in the same way as DJ Console Rmx.
- 4-deck control
• DJ Console 4-Mx Black controls both 2 decks and 4 decks, with 2 buttons switching the decks:
• 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.
- 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 Black audio outputs are:

-Select the audio source type in the DJ Console 4-Mx Black control panel: phono/consumer line/pro line/boost.

-If the audio sources are vinyl turntables at phono level, connect the turntables' ground cables to the DJ Console 4-Mx Black grounding screw.
- 1 microphone '' jack mono input, located on both the top panel and the front panel.
• The microphone input can be set:
