    Default 1200 Platter Dots

    We've got quite an international community here so...

    what are some of the names the speed calibration pattern dots on a 1200's platter go by around the globe?

    I always called them the pitch strobes. Thats basically their purpose, they are strobe activated dots which allow you to eyeball pitch without looking at the slider.

    I knew someone a while ago that called them "brothel dots", the reason being he said it looked like Pac Man in a brothel because of the red light!! I will add he was a bit wierd.

    I always referred to them as "the speed bump thingies on the side", technical i know.

    i always called it the pitch calibration light.

    if the pitch is not on 0 and the dots are "moving" at the 0 point....your pitch is out of calibration.
