Introducing Urbanears Slussen
A first of its kind from Urbanears, Slussen is the most powerful after-party weapon known to man. Slussen is the combination of pocket-sized hardware and free software that allows you to take the party with you, wherever you go.
Slussen comes in four colors – Pumpkin, Grape, Tomato and Petrol.
To unleash Slussen, plug the adapter the adapter into your iPhone, iPod or other iOS device. Connect your headphones and sound
system into the adapter via the two 3.5 mm jacks. Launch the app, and that’s it. Slussen’s pre-listening featureensures that the tunes are always bumping, even while preparing your next track.
Download the Slussen app from App Store. Connect your Slussen adapter to your phone. Then connect it to a pair of headphones and to your sound system. Launch your app. You are now ready to begin.
Loading your decks
Open a track by tapping the name field on top of each deck. Choose the track you would like to play in the drop down menu. Repeat the procedure on the other deck. The track will automatically start playing once loaded onto a deck. You can scroll through a track by sliding your finger along the waveform or by tapping the fast forward and rewind buttons.
Mixing Two Tracks
Once you’ve hit play on one of your decks, you can control whether the music is heard in your speakers or not. Slide the cross fader to the side on which you want to be heard. You are now ready to press play on the other deck, but to make mixing easier, make sure you press the sync button so that the two decks are in perfect sync. Please note that the two tracks need to be fully analyzed before you can press the sync button. You know this is done when the waveform is fully visible. Once the two tracks are in sync you are ready to mix them.
Using the Equalizer
Slussen’s powerful equalizer is accessible by tapping and holding the EQ button on the middle of each deck. Once that is done, you will be presented with four options. Slide your finger towards the option you would like to adjust. Slide clockwise to increase and counter clockwise to decrease. Similarly, you can adjust the other equalizers and the gain. Adjusting the equalizer is great way to
make your mixing smoother.
Preview next track through headphones
To pre-listen to a track you’d like to mix into your set, tap the headphone button and slide the headphone crossfader from side to side. If you don’t have the Slussen adapter plugged in, you won’t be able to use the pre-listening feature and you should change your settings in the settings menu.
