exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.
The apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or splashing and that no objects filled with liquids, such as vases, shall be placed on the

the batteries are facing as shown in the illustration.
■ Low Battery Indication
The following shows the amount of operating time that
can be expected under battery power.
Approximately 4 hours
• Using a high volume setting, low ambient
temperature, and certain performance styles can
shorten battery life.
IMPORTANT!
• General guidelines concerning battery life are
provided above. Note that actual battery life depends
on the type of battery being used.
• Replace batteries at least once a year. In particular,
leaving dead rechargeable (eneloop, EVOLTA)
batteries loaded in the product creates the risk of
deterioration of the rechargeable batteries. Remove
batteries from TRACKFORMER as soon as possible
after they go dead.
• Be sure to turn off TRACKFORMER before replacing
batteries.
• When replacing batteries, be sure to load a full set of
six new AA-size batteries, or a set of fully charged
AA-size rechargeable batteries (eneloop or
EVOLTA). Using batteries other than those specified
or mixing old and new batteries can greatly shorten
battery life and result in malfunction.
Low battery power is
indicated when the 12
buttons of the EFFECT/
AUTO LOOP area flash.
Replace batteries with new
ones as soon as possible.
While TRACKFORMER is connected to a computer
with a USB cable, it can be operated on the power
supplied over the cable.
IMPORTANT!
• Incorrect connections can make normal operation
impossible. Connect TRACKFORMER to a computer
as described by the procedure below.
• Once you are able to connect successfully, you can
leave the USB cable connected when you turn off
your computer and/or TRACKFORMER.
• Use a USB 2.0 cable.
• TRACKFORMER does not charge rechargeable
batteries. (Use the specified charger for charging.)
1. Turn off TRACKFORMER and then start up
your computer.
Do not start up your computer’s music software yet!
2. Use a commercially available high-speed
USB 2.0 cable to connect TRACKFORMER
to your computer.
3. Turn on TRACKFORMER.
For information about how to connect with a computer,
see the separate Tutorial Manual.
4. Start up music software on your computer.
IMPORTANT!
• Be sure to turn on TRACKFORMER before starting
up your computer’s music software.

Using TRACKFORMER (djay2 for iPad/iPhone)
TRACKFORMER is a user interface intended mainly
for scratch play. This section explains basic operations,
mainly concentrating on the JOG platter, which is a
distinctive feature of TRACKFORMER.
z The examples shown in this section are all for the
RIGHT SCRATCH setup.
z With the RIGHT SCRATCH setup, CROSSFADER
operations are performed with the left hand while
JOG platter operations are performed with the right
hand. Selecting the [B] button in the illustration
below causes JOG platter operations with the right
hand to affect the track on deck B (right) on the djay2
for iPad/iPhone screen.
z Rotating the JOG platter clockwise performs a fast
forward operation, while counter-clockwise rotation
performs a rewind operation.
NOTE
• Even if the RIGHT SCRATCH setup is selected, the
[A] and [B] buttons can be used to switch decks on
the screen operated by the JOG platter.
z The example below shows how to play back the
track on deck A and scratch with deck B.
1. On TRACKFORMER, move CROSSFADER
to the left as far as it will go, and then press
the deck A [PLAY] button. This will cause the
deck A sound to be output from MASTER
OUT.
2. Press the deck B [PLAY] button. At this time,
the deck B track, which is the next one to be
mixed, will be output to the headphones.
3. Move the JOG platter that is specified as the
B-size ([B] button ON) forward and back to
check the scratch sound over the
headphones.
4. In time with the rhythm of the deck A track,
move the CROSSFADER to the right, which
will mix it with the B-side scratch sound.
CUE POINT is the position of the start of a track. The
CUE POINT setting is required to ensure smooth DJ
mix play. You can use TRACKFORMER’s [CUE]
buttons (1, 2, 3) and the [SET CUE] button to set up to
four CUE POINTs for one track.
z Setting a START POINT
You can find the start point of a track by rotating the
JOG platter. This operation is facilitated by observing
the waveform that appears at the top of the screen
while searching for the start point. Once you find the
desired position, press the [SET CUE] button to set the
START POINT. Setting a START POINT causes a white
indicator mark to appear at the corresponding position
on the on-screen record. After you set a START POINT,
each press of the [CUE PLAY] button jumps to a CUE
POINT setting.

z Setting a CUE POINT
You can set a CUE POINT anywhere within a track by
pressing one of the CUE POINT area buttons ([CUE 1],
[CUE 2], [CUE 3]). After that, pressing a button starts
playback from the applicable CUE POINT. To delete a
CUE POINT, hold down the [SHIFT] button as you
press the applicable CUE POINT area button ([CUE 1],
[CUE 2], [CUE 3]). Setting a CUE POINT causes a
colored indicator mark (CUE 1: red, CUE 2: green, CUE
3: blue) to appear at the corresponding position on the
on-screen record.
This capability comes in handy when you want to
create a mix, for example, that sets points for Melody
A, Melody B, and chorus.
LOOP is a function that lets you repeat play back a
section of a track. Loops can be woven together for
virtually unlimited DJ mixing creativity.
z Pressing the [LOOP] button in the AUTO LOOP area
creates a loop a specified number of beats long.
z Pressing the [1/2] button halves the length of the
loop, while the [x2] button doubles the length of the
loop.
z Pressing the [LOOP] button again cancels AUTO
LOOP.
djay2 for iPad/iPhone includes a large number of
effects that you can apply to mixes. Effects provide you
with versatility to create exciting arrangements from
base tracks.
z The currently selected effects can be applied to the
sound being played by pressing the [FX] button in
the EFFECT area.
z You can change the effect type using the [W] and [X]
buttons on either side of the [FX] button.
z You can use the [FX PARAMETER] slide fader to
control the intensity of the applied effects.
