The shortcuts described are the keys on a US keyboard. On other keyboards these key positions may be labelled differently. For example, [control] on Windows is equivalent to [Command] on Mac OS X. Similarly, [Alt] on Windows means [Option] on Mac OS X.
NOTE: If the option ‘Playback Keys Use Shift’ is enabled on the setup screen all playback keys require either shift or caps lock to be pressed.
NOTE: For some Keyboard Shortcuts such as Load the highlighted song to a deck (shift + left or right arrows), control can be used as a substitute for shift.
