(If you did not set a Cue Point, then it will return to the beginning of the track.). If the Deck is paused, you can press and hold the Cue Button to play the track from the Temporary Cue Point. Releasing the Cue Button will return the track to the temporary Cue Point and pause it.

- PITCH. Controls the track's playback tempo.
When the LED is turned on, it indicates that the pitch fader of the unit is on zero (center) position and the track plays at its original speed. When the LED is flashing, the pitch values of the software and hardware don't match and you will need to move the hardware pitch fader until it reaches the software value, in order to regain hardware tempo control (soft-takeover). This can happen if you press SYNC and the tempo of the track changes to a different value.
