Technical specifications

DeeJay TRIM 4&6

• 4-channel input (line & phono), with an adjustable preamplifier per stereo input
• Headphone output and microphone input with talk-over function
• Built-in USB 2.0 hub (3 ports)

+ VirtualDJ 6 LE TC (Timecode)
• Play computer audio files
• Control playback of computer audio files on your turntables or CD players
• Mix the files on your external analog DJ mixer
Limited Edition of VirtualDJ 6 TC: mix computer audio files as if they were on your turntables/CDs (no time limits, but no advanced computer DJing functions such as special effects or playlists).

Connections
To mix with an analog mixer, the DJ connects:
- Turntables’/CD players’ outputs to DeeJay TRIM 4&6 audio inputs 1 to 4,
- DeeJay TRIM 4&6 outputs 1 to 4 to the inputs on their analog DJ mixer,
- Headphones and a microphone to the analog DJ mixer,
- An amplifier or amplified speakers to the analog DJ mixer’s outputs.

In this way, the DJ:
- Controls the playback of computer audio tracks on their turntables or CD players,
- Mixes using their analog mixer’s cross-fader, volume faders and EQ knobs,
- Previews music tracks using headphones plugged into their analog mixer.

Advantages of timecode DJ mixing
1. Easy to learn for advanced DJs: DJs who have their own DJ gear (CD players/turntables/analog mixer) don’t need to learn how to use new DJ gear to mix computer audio files: they mix on the CD players, turntables and analog mixer they already know, and they control the computer audio files with the same gear (CD players/turntables/analog mixer) as if the tracks were on CDs or vinyl records.

2. Highly accurate timecode controls: vinyl records (12" records) or jog wheels on good CD players (8" on Pioneer CDJ 1000 MK3) have a larger diameter than the jog wheels on computer DJ mixing controllers, thereby providing higher accuracy for scratching.

3. Switch instantly between computer audio files and standard audio CDs and records. The DJ keeps on mixing using the same equipment, whatever the source of the music: convenient and easy.
Timecode DJ mixing gives the DJ instant access to tons of audio files stored on their computer, instead of having to carry around lots of heavy boxes of vinyl records and CDs.

VirtualDJ 6 LE TC functions
- 2-deck DJ mixing software (compatible with MP3 / WAV / OGG / AAC audio formats)

FAQ

What is timecode DJ mixing?

DJ mixing procedures
Timecode DJ mixing consists of:
• Playing audio files in DJ mixing software (on virtual decks where you load the music).
• Controlling each virtual deck (play-pause / speed / position in the track) with a CD player or turntable.
• Mixing the audio tracks generated by the DJ mixing software on a mixer, generally an analog DJ mixer.

Installation
• Use a special timecoded disc on each turntable/CD player.
• Connect the turntables’/CD players’ outputs to the DJ audio interface’s inputs.
• Connect the DJ audio interface’s outputs to an analog mixer.

Explanation
• The operations performed on the timecoded record or CD (play-pause / speed / position in the track) are transferred to the DJ mixing software.
• The DJ mixing software applies each operation performed on the timecoded record or CD to the computer audio track loaded in the software.

Benefits
• Timecode DJ mixing looks exactly like traditional DJ mixing: when DJing in front of an audience, this is good for the DJ’s professional image.
