3. Connections  
1) Be sure the power is disconnected.  
2) Connect the included RCA cable from your Pro Scratch 1 outputs to the inputs on your mixer.  
3) Use the supplied 1/8” mini plug cable to connect your Pro Scratch 1 to a mini jack connection (A or B ) on a

CAUTION:  
CAUTION:  
• The player will work normally when the main unit is  
mounted with the front panel within 15 degrees of the  
vertical plane If the unit is tilted excessively, disks  
may not be loaded or unloaded properly.

(a) FADER “Q” START CONTROL: This feature is used in conjunction with American DJ mixers that also feature “Fader  
Q Start” control. For best results use this feature with two (2) Pro Scratch 1 players. Connect your Pro Scratch 1’s as  
described in the set-up section of this manual. After set-up is completed load your players. By moving the mixer’s  
crossfader from left to right you can start and pause your Pro Scratch 1 playback functions. For Example, when using  
two (2) Pro Scratch 1 players and a Fader “Q” Start mixer, if your mixer’s crossfader is all the way to the left (player  
one is playing, player two is in cue or pause mode), and you move the fader at least 20% to the right, player two  
(2) will begin to play and player one (1) will return to cue mode. When the crossfader is to the right, and you move  
it 20% to the left, player one (1) will begin to play and player two (2) will return to its’ cue point. You can create  
great effects similar to scratching with this feature. After storing cue points on each side of the CD player, different  
songs or samples may quickly be recalled by moving the mixer crossfader back and forth. New cue points can be  
easily selected on the Pro Scratch 1 player (see setting cue points page 13). “Q” Start control is easy to use and  
mastering this feature will help you create amazing effects with your music. Note: For proper “Q” Start operation be  
sure your mixers “Hamster” setting are set to 1/2 (Normal Setting).  
(b) BOP EFFECT: The Bop Effect button serves two features. First, it is a stutter effect, creating a sound similar to a  
sampler. Second, it will return to the last Cue point in memory instantly. This will allow you to create great effects. To  
create the BOP Effect, see BOP Effect on page 15.  
(c) FLIP-FLOP: This feature is used in conjunction with American DJ® mixers that also feature Fader “Q” Start. For  
FLIP-FLOP results you must use two (2) Pro Scratch 1 players. Connect your Pro Scratch 1’s as described in the  
set-up section of this manual. This feature will start the next player once one (1) player has ended. For example, if  
player one (1) is playing a disc and it ends, player two (2) will instantly begin to play. You may set FLIP-FLOP to play  
track to track or disc to disc. For more information on this feature, see FLIP-FLOP™ on page 18.  
(e) MEMORY BACKUP: The Pro Scratch 1 has a five (5) year memory back-up, that will save your setting in case the  
power supply is accidentally disconnected. Pro Scratch 1 will remember your last setting (repeat, SGL, CTN, and  
effect parameters) even if you disconnect your main power. The Pro Scratch 1 will store your cue points in memory  
if you accidentally eject a disc or shut off the power. To store your settings into memory hold down the MEMORY  
BUTTON (7) for 5 seconds.  
(f) PROGRAMMABLE CUE POINTS: The Pro Scratch 1 has three Flash Start Buttons (8). 128 Cue points can be  
stored in each of the FLASH START BUTTONS (6), for a total of 384. These cue points can be stored into the unit's  
internal memory and may be recalled at any time.
