Hot Clips is a new feature introduced in version 1.3 that allows you to preview a disc’s audio without dropping it onto the deck. This will allow you to experiment with new sounds and effectively play with a 5th deck without needing to make any permanent changes to your current mix.
Hot Clips are available to use in Freestyle, Co-op Freestyle, or Campaign modes.
To trigger a Hot Clip, hover your cursor over a song in your crate and then use Z, X, C, or V to trigger audio for the disc you’d like to play. Controller players can trigger the hot clip by hovering their cursor over the song and then pressing their right thumbstick in the direction of the track they would like to play as a hot clip.
During gameplay, players will notice circles around the track that is being played as a hot clip.
