Edited by Djinu, Alexander Avdeev, Anonymous, Eng

You're watching VisiHow. In another video at Setup_DDJ_SX2_DJ_Controller, we've shown how to set up the DDJ SX2 controller. This video will demonstrate how to start playing music through speakers on the DDJ SX2 controller. When we start playing music, we want to make sure that we do this in a controlled fashion so that we don't play music too loudly for the speakers.

  11. 11
    We take the "TRIM" knob for deck 1 and turn it clockwise until we see green lights starting to move.
    We need to make sure that we don't go all the way forward because the monitor will show the red peak. We bring the "TRIM" knob back a little so that we get a consistent monitor level that does not peak at the red level.

    Now, we slowly turn the "MASTER LEVEL" knob in a clockwise direction.
    We do it until we hear music playing through the speakers. We'll note that there's metering at the "MASTER LEVEL" knob. We just make sure that the meter does not go into the red area.
