    In this mode the jog is divided in 6 different areas according to the image on the right.
    Holding the jog and moving the red needle marker within each area will produce one predefined scratch pattern.
    The scratch sound produced will not match your movements on the jog. As long as you keep moving the red needle marker, the scratch pattern will repeat itself. Depending on the "jogCutterJumpToCue" option, the track may or may not jump back to the last cue-point set every time the scratch pattern repeats itself.
    Holding the jog still, will not stop the sound. Once you hold the jog still the scratch pattern will finish playing and normal playback will resume.
