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. 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: 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.
