CONTROLS



DECK ASSIGNMENT


If you have connected the LC6000 in VirtualDJ for the first time or LC6000 is power-cycled, the Deck assignment mode will be offered automatically to assign the device to a Deck (1 or 2 if you are using a 2-Decks skin, or 1 to 4 if you are using a 4-Decks skin).
If the Deck assignment mode is not offered, you can get this by pressing SHIFT + SLIP buttons.



While in Deck Assignment mode, the leds on Pads 1 to 4 indicate the following..
- Solid turned on led indicates the currently assigned Deck
- Blinking led indicates an available Deck to assign the device to
- Turned Off led indicates an unavailable Deck or a Deck that has been assigned to a different LC6000 device.

If you want to unassign a Deck from one device to make it available on the other LC6000 devices, hold down the Pad that is turned on solid for more than 2 seconds and then release.

Make or confirm your selection to exit Deck Assignment mode.

Note, that during the Deck Assignment mode, no other functionality will be available.

Adjust the track's playback speed (tempo). When pitch fader is at the middle position (track is playing at its original speed), the white center LED will be lit.
When the green-arrow LEDs are lit, the pitch fader has to be moved to the direction the arrows indicate, in order to catch the pitch value of the deck. This is mostly happening when decks are swapped (via the LAYER button) and the pitch value of one deck is different than the other.
Note that this Hardware-takeover is not following the soft-takeover of VirtualDJ, meaning that if SHIFT is pressed, the arrows will not indicate the direction the pitch fader needs to be moved to in order to re-gain pitch control, but the ghost-fader on the GUI will be an aid

Hold down to temporary speed up/slow down the song while pressed. When released, the track playback will return to the speed designated by the Pitch Fader.
