- Performance Pads – Pioneer added 16 “performance pads” on the sub-controller for seven different functionalities: hot loop, auto loop, manual loop, hot cue, roll, slicer and sampler. It also includes a “Velocity Mode” function that determines the output volume of the sample based on how hard the pads are struck. Each pad can be assigned as a hot cue point, and its blue illumination will signify its state of play for instant graphic feedback.
- Sampler Volume Fader – In between the performance pads is a volume slider to control output of the trigger pads. The convenient location of the slider enables quick volume adjustment during finger drum performances.
- Slip Mode – Pioneer included a Slip Mode function that enables continuous music playback in the background even when loops and hot cues are being performed. The functionality can also be used with players and controllers that support Serato DJ but not Slip Mode.
- FX Knobs/Buttons – The integrated knobs and buttons are arranged for Serato DJ software for operation of iZotope® effects.
