PITCH FADER: Controls the track’s playback speed. An LED next to the fader will light up when set at 0%. * Pitch slide are inverted, to match with the screen(Up: +, Down: -, otherwise is very confusing). *** Soft-takeover to prevent sudden wide parameter changes**when the on-screen control diverges from a hardware control.

OUTPUT 1 (RCA): This stereo RCA connection will output the main mix from your computer. Please use a stereo RCA cable to connect this output to a powered speaker or amplifier system.
OUTPUT 2 (RCA): This stereo RCA connection will output the Cue Channel from your computer for monitoring purposes. Please note that the Cue Channel is also output through the HEADPHONES output on the front panel.
HEADPHONES: This stereo 1/4“ output will output the signal being routed to the Cue Channel.
MIC GAIN: This knob controls the microphone level being sent to the main mix.
MIC THROUGH: This is a 1/4“ microphone input. The signal from this input will be sent directly to the main mix.
The pitch on the controller has a very short run. Thus, having it configured as a +10/-10 (or more) is tricky because you will get a very low pitch precision. Configuring it as +8/-8 (Mk2 style) is highly recommended.
Each slide/knob needs to be moved on Mixxx startup to match levels with the Mixxx UI.
