"The Scratch Cue is a smart microprocessor driven feature that allows performing with the crossfader in your headphones before doing it live. Therefore you can practice scratch and adjusting crossfader shapes and cut in on the headphones. (This feature was copied from the Vestax PMC-007)
To activate this feature you press Scratch Cue and go to one of the extremes of the crossfader. The crossfader is then bypassed: you hear it in your headphones but the signal doesn't go to the Master Out. The smart crossfader is driven by a microprocessor that memorizes the extreme of the crossfader where you activated this feature and won't deactivate it until you reach it back (all the process is assisted by a led flashing green, amber or red). This way we make sure that the crossfader goes back to normal mode in the same physical position and avoid the other channel signal fade in suddenly if we leave the crossfader in the middle by mistake.
• This is additional to the HAK-360 - not a replacement.
• Yhe line fader curves have been fixed. Better sound and quality.
• The Eternal fader is unchanged but has a new microprocessor driving it.
