Phase offers users a great DJing experience with the application of cutting-edge technology. If you have recently acquired a Phase unit or are considering buying Phase soon, this tutorial will introduce and guide you through the main features of the product for a better understanding of it.
The first important step to know is how to correctly power your Phase. The product works both connected to a computer or to any 5-volt power outlet. Check the icons in the back of the Receiver. A lit “power” icon indicates the Receiver is on, and the “connect” icon indicates that the Receiver is communicating with your computer.
When your Receiver is powered on, you will notice the Remotes will start charging and their LEDs will constantly move upwards. Two hours is enough time to fully charge your Remotes, and the still LEDs (they will stop flashing) indicate the charging is complete.
When you unpack your Phase for the first time, the two Remotes are already linked to your Receiver. However, you should understand how to properly link them in case you are using more than two Remotes, or if they are simply not linked to the Receiver. To do so, place your Remotes on the dock and long-press the setup button A to link Remote A to the Receiver. The process will be completed once the LED light stops blinking. Repeat the process for the other Remote with setup button B. If the LED colors of the setup buttons and the Remotes match, this means they are properly linked. Once you take the Remotes out of the Phase Receiver, the setup buttons will turn white and the Remote will maintain the initial LED color. This response is correct.
Each Remote can only be linked to one deck at the time, so one Phase Receiver can only be linked with two Remotes simultaneously. If you have more than two Remotes and you wish to disconnect one from the Receiver to pair another, place the new Remote and link it following the steps above. You will notice that the LED in the previously-linked Remote will start flashing and will turn white. This means that the Remote has been disconnected.
This is the last mandatory step before using your Phase after your Remotes have been linked to the Receiver. Since the Remotes in your Phase unit are composed of very receptive sensors, they need a few seconds to calibrate to ensure the best product performance. To do this, take your Remotes out of the Receiver and place them on your record, or on any flat surface. Make sure the Remotes remain absolutely still until their LEDs are completely full. This means your Remotes are properly calibrated, so they are ready to be used.
The pause and play feature on your Phase unit was designed to emulate the action of removing the needles from your records. To activate pause mode in one of your Remotes, simply press the corresponding setup button (A or B) on the Receiver. You will see the LEDs on both the Remote and the setup button slightly flashing. This not only means the Remote has been paused, but also that the radio communication between it and the Receiver is working well.
Lastly, after a long set, the battery of your Remotes can get low. When this happens, you will notice that the LED on your Remote will start flashing red, and the LED dots on the Receiver will start flashing also. This is a warning sign that your Remotes should be charging.
