- the Deck is not the Master-Deck (deck that is playing out live - on air)
- the deck is not playing
9 TEMPO
Adjust the tempo of the loaded track When in middle position (green led is turned on), the track plays at its original speed..
10 TEMPO ASSISTANT LEDs
When turned on, the LED will indicate the direction the Tempo fader needs to be moved in order the track to get the same BPM as the opposite one.
When a LED flashes, indicates the direction the Tempo fader needs to be moved in order the actual/hardware fader to catch the software tempo value and re-gain tempo control from the Inpulse. This can happen if the SYNC button is pressed and the track gets a tempo value different than the one the hardware fader designates.
Both LEDs will operate only when the BeatMatch Guide button [26] is enabled.
