Does the wireless party link connect to any other bluetooth speaker, or does it have to be an LG BT speaker?

Asked by: Aeto684
You can connect only one Bluetooth device in the MAIN unit. You cannot connect Bluetooth device to the OTHER unit. WIRELESS PARTY LINK connection is only supported on Android devices. (WIRELESS PARTY LINK connection may not be supported depending on the connected device specifications or OS.) Removable/detachable Bluetooth devices (ex. Dongle etc.) will not support WIRELESS PARTY LINK connection. When WIRELESS PARTY LINK is connected, Bluetooth connection is not available in status of recording. ^AC

Will there be an update for the iphone with the multi point for connecting multiple bluetooth devices?

Asked by: Aeto684
Only iPhone can advise if they will be issuing an update for their devices. This unit is compatible with iPhone. Even if this unit connected up to 3 Bluetooth devices in the Bluetooth mode, you can play and control music by using only one of the connected devices. The Music Flow App is limited to Android. ^AC

Can I use the jogging wheels without all the affects, and is their a way to control the music so that I can blend mix

Asked by: DJ Royce
Each jogging wheel on the LG LOUDR Portable Entertainment System with Bluetooth® Connectivity, Model # RK8 can be used to select inputs and different effects on the unit. If you do not want to use a particular effect, then you need not select it. We are not quite clear on your inquiry about if you can blend a mix. The unit has MIX function that mixes audio sound, a CROSS FADER that allows you to adjust the sound volume of mixing files when using MIX, and a DJ LOOP mode that can be used during USB playback. The AUTO SYNC function allows you to synchronize the tempo of audio files being played in USB 1 and USB 2...^IFV

How do I control the music as far as trying to beat mix from side 1 to side 2

Asked by: DJ Royce
You can mix audio sounds. 1. Press MIX. ‘MIXER ON’ is displayed. Select a desired Function for SIDE A/1 and play it. Mix is available in all functions except USB 2. 2. During playback, insert a USB device in USB 2 port and play it. SIDE B/2 is fixed as USB 2 function. 3. Move the CROSS FADER to adjust the sound volume of mixed sound. Move it to the left to lower the volume of SIDE B/2 and move it to the right to lower the volume of SIDE A/1. ^AC
