(a) FADER Q START CONTROL: This feature is used in conjunction with most American Audio and American DJ audio mixers that also feature Fader Q Start control. For best results use this feature with two (2) CDI-300 players. Connect your CDI-300s as described in the set-up section of this manual. After set up is completed load your players. By moving the mixers crossfader from left to right you can start and pause your CDI-300 playback functions. For Example, when using two (2) CDI-300 players and a Fader Q Start mixer, if your mixers cross fader is all the way to the left (player one is playing, player two is in cue or pause mode), and you move the fader at least 20% to the right, player two (2) will begin to play and player one (1) will return to cue mode. When the cross fader is to the right, and you move it 20% to the left, player one (1) will begin to play and player two (2) will return to its cue point. You can create great effects similar to scratching with this feature. After storing cue points on each side of the CD player, different songs or samples may quickly be recalled by moving the mixer crossfader back and forth. New cue points can be easily selected on the CDI-300 player (see setting cue points page 16). Q Start control is easy to use and mastering this feature will help you create amazing effects with your music. Note: For proper Q Start operation be sure your mixers Hamster setting are set to 1/2 (Normal Setting). (b) FLIP-FLOP: This feature is used in conjunction with American Audio mixers that also feature Fader Q Start. For FLIP-FLOP results you must use two (2) CDI-300 players. Connect your CDI-300s as described in the set-up section of this manual. This feature will start the next player once one (1) player has ended. For example, if player one (1) is playing a disc and it ends, player two (2) will instantly begin to play. You may set FLIP-FLOP to play track to track or disc to disc. For more information on this feature, see FLIP-FLOP on page 25. (c) MEMORY BACKUP: The CDI-300 has a five (5) year memory back-up, that will save your setting in case the power supply is accidentally disconnected. CDI-300 will remember your last setting even if you disconnect your main power. The CDI-300 will store your cue points and samples in memory if you accidentally eject a disc or shut off the power. See memory on page 21. (d) PROGRAMMABLE CUE POINTS: The CDI-300 has four BANK BUTTONS (4). 127 Cue points can be stored in each of the BANK BUTTONS (4), for a total of 381. These cue points can be stored into the unit's internal memory and may be recalled at any time. See setting "Cue Points" on page 16 (e) FLASH START FUNCTION: This feature is used in conjunction with most American Audio and American DJ audio mixers that also feature Fader Q Start control. This function work similar to the Fader "Q" Start Control described above. In this case the crossfader is used to start and stop any sample that is stored in the players memory.

(f) SLEEP MODE: The CDI-300's laser and pick-up assembly will power down after 15 minutes of inactivity (when in
pause or cue mode). This will lengthen the life of your motor drive and laser. To initialize the player, just press the cue or play buttons.

12. Using the Built In Sampler:
Your CDI-300 comes with an advanced built in sampler. You may store up to four samples. One sample in each of the four BANK BUTTONS (4) (Once again please note you may only store either a CUE POINT or a SAMPLE into a BANK BUTTON (4), not both). Your sample can be a maximum of 6.5 seconds in length. A sample can be recalled while a CD is playing, while the CD drive is in PAUSE MODE, you may even play a sample when the CD has been removed. You may play your sample at anytime without music interruption. If you play your sample when the unit is already in playback mode you sample will over lap the current music source. You can also play your sample once or in a continuous loop. As with cue points you may store approximately 381 (127 x 3) samples in a drives memory (depending on available memory). The MEMORY BUCKET (31) on the LCD DISPLAY (22) will approximate the remaining memory.

To create a sample:

1) Initialize a loop (see creating a seamless loop on page 17). If your loop is longer than 6.5 seconds it cannot be stored as a sample and will stored as a Cue Point.
