                                                    Using iSpin
MIC ON / OFF
Turn ON and OFF for your microphone. If you’re entertaining a crowd, they my not want to hear your background ‘chatter’. This

allows you to kill the microphone when it is not wanted!



Headphone Cue / Main
With the headphone switch in the ‘CUE’ position, you can listen to the song playing on the device that’s NOT being sent

(through the fader) to the main output. This allows you to cue up the other player to the next song.

Headphone main allows you to listen to iSpin’s main output.



                       ********** AH YES, BUT THE EFFECTS! ************


The effects portion of iSpin is what really makes the device fun. The effects are dramatic, but may require some experience

before you can use them confidently in a performance. One important note: When switching between the two effects program

banks, a brief disruption of the sound occurs (perhaps 1/50th of a second), and although this will be barely heard with a large

sound system in a typical room, you may wish to be careful when switching program banks in any case. Also, some effect

programs actually STOP the sound, and it is important to know just which knobs do this and under what conditions.

These are effects not found on any other unit of this type, and for many users, it will be the first time such effects are

experienced. Final note on effects: HAVE FUN!



                                                               12
Program 1
a. REVERB

The left knob, in program 2, becomes a reverb control, with an interesting feature: As the knob is rotated clockwise, reverb will

begin to be added to the program, but if quickly turned clockwise, the most recent sounds of the program will be ‘frozen’ into

the reverb. This is another case where if the knob is fully clockwise, the program is essentially off!

Be careful with this knob, in either program, because when it is fully clockwise, no music will get through the system.

b. LP FILTER

The right-most knob in this program set is just like the same knob in the other program set (HP Filter), but in this case, it filters

out the higher frequencies. Also very handy when affecting highly rhythmic program, and very popular with ‘trance’ styles.

Program 2
a. FLANGE

The center knob controls a wonderful sound effect called ‘flanging’, essentially the addition of the program that has been

delayed by a very short time, only thousandths of a second. This gives the listener the impression that the music source (or

their head) is slowly moving as the knob is turned. Very nice to add a slowly evolving, ‘dreamy’ aspect to the sound.

b. HP FILTER

The right-most knob controls this popular effect, which progressively removes the bass as the knob is rotated clockwise. This

is not a simple equalizer; it is a sharp high pass filter that can remove all but the highest frequencies. Very nice as a slow

modification to program with strong beats and a lot of cymbals.




                                                                 13
Spin
The simulation of scratch feature in DJ turntable.

Cross fader
The cross fader does two things at the same time: It fades between the two music sources, allowing you to blend from one

program into a new one, but also it does the exact opposite to the CUE channel. This allows you to cue up a new song on the

player that ISN’T being sent to the main output. This allows you to cue up to a precise spot so that you can start the new

program and quickly cross fade to it to align the beat of the two programs.

MIC Effects / Main
   1.   MIC Effects: The microphone’s output is sent through the effects channel.

   2.   MIC Main: The microphone’s output is sent directly to the main output, bypassing the effects processor.

Recording music to computer
1. Turn the power ON (○).
                      27


2. Plug one end of an audio cable into phone line-out jack

(○) and other end to computer sound card’s line-in jack.

Of course, this requires a stereo cable.

For Windows XP Users:
3. Turn ON your computer, and start the “Sound Recorder” recording program on your Windows XP for recording purpose. (You

may use your favorite recording software to record your created music).

Before using Windows XP sound recorder program, you have to configure as following:

  a.   Go to Control Panel

  b.   Choose Volume

  c.   Choose Option

  d.   Choose Content



  e.   Go to Start.

  f.   Choose All Programs.

  g.   Choose Accessories.

  h.   Choose Entertainment.

  i.   Choose Sound Recorder.

Note1: Not all computers have stereo inputs. Be sure to check for this if you want to mix directly into your computer.

Note2: If you do not satisfy with Windows XP’s sound recorder program, please download or purchase other recording

programs from Internet or stores.

For Other Operating System Users:




                                                             15
