Steps

  1. 1
    To use the hot cue points, we press the "HOT CUE" button on the controller.
    We will notice that there are two modes: the dark-blue mode and the white-blue mode. We want to make sure that the button is on the white-blue mode, or the lighter of the two modes. This is the mode where we can set the hot cue points. We can set the hot cue points when the track is paused or is playing.

    For example, we want the red pad to stand for the beginning of the song.
    In this video, the color green stands for the beginning of the song; so, we will go over to the red color in the software and change the color to green. We will notice that the color will be changed on the controller as well.
