ˆ Preparation
PRESETTING THE
CONTROLS
CONNECTING INPUTS
Warning: A sudden high output from the
mixer could damage your hearing, especially
if you use headphones, and might also damage the audio devices connected to the mixer's output. Before using the mixer, make
sure you set your receiver/amplifier's volume
control to its minimum volume level setting.
Before you connect the power cord, make
sure you set POWER to off. To avoid sudden
and inaudible sound outputs from any audio
devices that you connect to the mixer, be
sure to have their power controls set to off,
and any tone controls set to flat.
You can connect up to ten audio input sources (such as cassette tape decks, CD players,
tuners, two magnetic-cartridge turntables, a
camcorder or a VCR) to the mixer’s input
jacks on the back panel. You can also connect microphones to the appropriate jacks on
the top and back panels.
1. Connect the line-level outputs from up to
six audio sources to the LINE 1, LINE2,
LINE 3, LINE 4, LINE 5, and LINE 6 input
jacks, matching left to left, and right to
right.
Caution: Do not connect an audio
source with a line-level output to the
low-level PHONO 1, PHONO 2, or AUX
MIC audio input jacks.
CONNECTING THE
OUTPUTS
To play the mixer's output signal through
your sound system (for events such as parties, dances, conferences, and so on), connect one end of an audio patch cord (not
supplied) to the mixer's OUTPUT AMP L
(white) and R (red) jacks, then connect the
other end to your receiver/amplifier's left and
right input jacks, matching left to left, and
right to right.
To record the mixer's output signal, connect
one end of an audio patch cord (not supplied) to the mixer's OUTPUT REC L (white)
and R (red) jacks, then connect the other end
to your tape deck's left and right line input
jacks, matching left to left, and right to right.
6
2. Connect the low-level outputs from up to
two audio sources (such as magnetic
cartridge turntables) to the PHONO 1 and
PHONO 2 input jacks, matching left to
left, and right to right.
Note: If you connect magnetic cartridge
turntables, connect their ground wires
(usually black or green) to GND.
3. Connect a sound effect device (such as
an echo reverb or a digital sampler processor) to the EFFECT SEND (output)
and EFFECT RECEIVE (input) jacks,
matching left to left, and right to right.
4. Connect a mono input source (such as a
wireless microphone receiver) to the
AUX LINE MONO jacks, matching left to
left, and right to right.
Preparation
32-3008.fm Page 7 Thursday, April 6, 2000 4:03 PM
Connecting Microphones
You can connect two microphones (not supplied) to the mixer.
Connect a microphone with an XLR plug to
DJ MIC on the top panel’s upper left corner.
Connect a microphone with a 1/4-inch (6.35
mm) plug to AUX MIC on the back panel’s
lower right corner.
CONNECTING
HEADPHONES
To listen in privacy or monitor the audio
source inputs so you can locate an exact
passage or section before mixing it, connect
a pair of stereo headphones (not supplied)
with a 1/4-inch (6.35 mm) plug to the PHONES
jack on the mixer's lower right corner.
Your local Radio Shack store carries a wide
selection of headphones.
CONNECTING POWER
Note: Before you connect the mixer's power
cord, make sure power is turned off by pressing POWER (if the control is out, the power is
off).
Connect the power cord to a standard AC
outlet.
Caution: The power cord has a polarized
plug that fits only one way into a standard AC
outlet. If the plug does not fit, turn it over so it
fits properly. Do not force it!
Listening Safely
Do not listen at extremely high volume levels. Extended, high-volume listening can
lead to permanent hearing loss.
To protect your hearing when you use headphones, always follow these guidelines to set
the listening volume.
• Set CUE LEVEL to 0 before you begin listening.
• After you put on the headphones, adjust
CUE LEVEL to a comfortable listening
volume level.
CONNECTING A LAMP
The mixer has a 12V/3W MAX LAMP socket
for connecting a 12V/3W BNC lamp so you
can see the control panel in dark or low light
conditions.
• Once you set the headphones' volume,
do not increase it. Over time, your ears
adapt to the volume level, so a volume
level that does not cause discomfort
might still damage your hearing.
ˆ Operation
1. Set the volume levels on the output
devices (receiver, amplifier, or tape
deck) to minimum and turn them on.
4. Preset the input signal levels (see “Presetting the Input Signal Levels” on
Page 8).
2. Press POWER to turn on the mixer. The
POWER indicator lights.
5. Mix the audio input sources (see “Mixing
the Inputs” on Page 10).
3. Turn on the input sources you want to
mix.
Operation
7
32-3008.fm Page 8 Thursday, April 6, 2000 4:03 PM
6. After you finish mixing, turn down the
volume on the output audio devices, turn
off the input and output audio devices
(amplifiers, tape decks, and so on), then
press POWER so it pops up to turn off
the mixer. The POWER indicator turns
off.
Notes:
• If you did not connect an input source to
every jack or do not want to mix every
input source connected to the mixer's
input jacks, you do not need to preset
every channel input. Decide which
source(s) you want to preset and mix,
then preset those inputs only.
PRESETTING THE INPUT
SIGNAL LEVELS
• While you adjust the input signal levels
for channels 1, 2, 3, and 4, either use
the headphones or turn up the receiver/
amplifier's volume to a comfortable listening level (not necessarily the final
usable level).
To avoid accidentally over-driving a channel
or prematurely mixing in an audio input
source, start with the following settings:
• All volume slide controls set to 0.
• Do not play a quiet portion of music
while you adjust the volume levels, otherwise the volume levels for channels 1,
2, 3, and 4 will be over-driven during the
loud portions of the music.
• Both ASSIGN switches set to OFF.
• All GAIN knobs set mid level.
• All HIGH, MID, and BASS controls, CUE
LEVEL, DJ MIC LEVEL, AUX LEVEL,
SEND, RECEIVE, and MASTER set to 0.
Rotate MASTER clockwise and temporarily
set it to about the 5th marker.
Note: The MASTER volume control adjusts
the overall volume of DJ MIC, AUX, CH1, CH2,
CH3, CH4, RECEIVE input, and sound effects.
The mixer uses two volume unit (VU) meters
to indicate the total stereo output signal level.
For the best results, each input signal level
should normally be set so the VU meters
never move into the red range (0 or above).
Distortion is likely to occur on audio peaks if
the meter moves into the red range.
For monaural output, set MONO/STEREO to
MONO. For stereo output, set it to STEREO.
Presetting the Channel Inputs
Follow these steps to preset each channel
input you plan to mix.
8
1. Set the channel selector to the desired
input source.
2. Start playback of the selected input
source.
3. Adjust the HIGH, MID, and BASS controls
as desired. See “Using the Tone Controls” on Page 11.
Note: If you are using an external equalizer, leave the tone controls set to 0 and
adjust the tone on the external equalizer.
4. Slowly slide up the channel volume control until you get a reading of up to 0 on
both VU meters.
Important: Note the channel volume level
slide control's setting for the selected audio
source, so each time you want to mix that
source you can slide the volume control to
the correct setting.
Operation
32-3008.fm Page 9 Thursday, April 6, 2000 4:03 PM
Notes:
Notes:
• If it was necessary to set the channel
volume level slide control to 10 to get a
reading of up to 0 on the VU meter, then
slide it down to about 8 and adjust the
GAIN control to get a reading of up to 0
on the VU meters. (See “Using Gain” on
Page 11.)
• If it was necessary to set DJ MIC LEVEL
or AUX LEVEL all the way to 10 in order
to get a reading of up to 0 on the VU
meter, then turn it down to about 8 and
adjust the DJ MIC GAIN control to get a
reading of up to 0 on the VU meters.
(See “Using Gain” on Page 11.)
• If the above does not work, set GAIN to
mid level and rotate MASTER clockwise
until you get a reading of 0 on the VU
meters.
If that does not work, set DJ MIC GAIN or
AUX GAIN to mid level and rotate MASTER clockwise until you get a reading of
0 on the VU meters.
• Readjusting MASTER affects the level of
the previously set input sources. You
must readjust those sources until you
get a reading of up to 0 on the VU
meters for each input source.
• If you must readjust MASTER, remember, doing so affects the level of the previously set input sources. You must
readjust those sources until you get a
reading of up to 0 on the VU meters for
each input source.
5. Stop playback of the selected input
source.
3. If your XLR or auxiliary microphone has
an ON/OFF control, set it to OFF.
6. Repeat these steps for each channel
input you plan to mix.
If your XLR or auxiliary microphone
does not have an ON/OFF control, set
DJ MIC LEVEL or AUX LEVEL to 0.
Presetting a Microphone
1. If your XLR or auxiliary microphone has
an ON/OFF control, set it to ON.
If your XLR or auxiliary microphone
does not have an ON/OFF control, set
DJ MIC LEVEL or AUX LEVEL to 0.
2. While talking continuously, adjust DJ MIC
LEVEL or AUX LEVEL until you get a
reading of up to 0 on both VU meters.
(See “Using an XLR Microphone” on
Page 12 and “Using an AUX Microphone” on Page 12.)
Important: Note the DJ MIC LEVEL or AUX
LEVEL setting, so each time you want to mix
the microphone, you can set the control to
the correct setting.
Presetting the Auxiliary Input
1. To preset the AUX LINE input source, set
AUX to LINE.
2. Start playback of the selected input
source.
3. Adjust the HIGH, MID, and BASS controls
as desired. See “Using the Tone Controls” on Page 11.
Note: If you are using an external equalizer, leave the tone controls set to 0 and
adjust the tone on the external equalizer.
4. Slowly adjust AUX LEVEL until you get a
reading of 0 on both VU meters.
Operation
9
32-3008.fm Page 10 Thursday, April 6, 2000 4:03 PM
Important: Note the AUX LEVEL setting,
so each time you want to mix that
source you can set the control to the
correct setting.
Notes:
To avoid sudden and inaudible sound outputs from any audio devices that you connect to the mixer, be sure to set their power
controls to off and any tone controls to flat.
Playing One Input Source
• If it was necessary to set the AUX LEVEL
control to 10 to get a reading of up to 0
on the VU meter, then set AUX LEVEL to
about 8 and adjust the AUX GAIN control
to get a reading of up to 0 on the VU
meters. (See “Using Gain” on Page 11.)
• If the above does not work, set AUX
GAIN mid level and rotate MASTER
clockwise until you get a reading of 0 on
the VU meters.
• Readjust MASTER affects the level of the
previously set input sources. You must
readjust those sources until you get a
reading of up to 0 on the VU meters for
each.
5. Stop playback of the selected input
source.
1. Set ASSIGN A to the desired source,
then set CROSS FADER to A.
2. Select the mixer's input — CH 1, CH 2,
CH 3, or CH 4.
3. Set the input selector control to the input
source you want to play first through
your sound system.
4. Adjust the receiver's or amplifier's (not
the mixer's) volume control to the
desired volume.
Make sure the first input source's volume level slide control is set to the correct preset position.
5. Start playback of the input source.
Monitoring a Second Input Source
MIXING THE INPUTS
You can connect input signals from up to 12
audio sources, select any two of the channel
input sources, then mix them so only one or
both play through your sound system.
Mixing requires three operations:
Monitoring a second input source's signal
level requires selecting the input source that
is not currently playing, finding the desired
section you want to mix, then adjusting the
source's sound level so it matches the volume level of the source currently playing.
1. Connect and put on headphones.
• Playing one input source.
Note: You can listen to one channel
through the headphones while the other
channel is playing through the sound
system.
• Monitoring the next input source.
• Switching to the next input source.
You can start with either of the two selected
sources.
To prevent prematurely mixing audio sources, set all volume level controls to 0.
10
2. Set ASSIGN B to the second input
source.
3. Set CUE ASSIGN to the audio input
source (CH 1, CH 2, CH 3, or CH 4) you
want to monitor.
Operation
32-3008.fm Page 11 Thursday, April 6, 2000 4:03 PM
4. Set the desired channel volume level
slide control to the preset position.
• To mix any two inputs selected by the
ASSIGN switches, set each ASSIGN
switch to the desired channel. Then use
CROSS FADER to mix the two.
5. Adjust CUE LEVEL to a comfortable listening level.
• Do not slide CROSS FADER to the center
if you want to monitor one channel while
the other is playing. Otherwise, the
sound from the channel you monitor will
also be heard through your sound system. Instead, slide CROSS FADER to the
channel you are not monitoring. For
example, to monitor channel 1 (selected
by ASSIGN A) while channel 2 (selected
by ASSIGN B) is playing, slide CROSS
FADER to B.
6. Start playback of the input source you
want to play next through your sound
system.
7. Set the input device to the desired section of music, then stop or pause the
input device.
Switching to the Second Input
Source
• Use CUE LEVEL to listen to the input
controlled by the CUE ASSIGN switch
and what is playing on the currently
selected output device.
1. Start playback of the second input
source.
2. Slide CROSS FADER from A to B when
you are ready to play the second
source’s sound through your sound system.
USING THE SPECIAL
CONTROLS
Slide CROSS FADER:
• To the left to fade in the channel
selected by ASSIGN A and fade out
the channel selected by ASSIGN B.
• To the right to fade in the channel
selected by ASSIGN B and fade out
the channel selected by ASSIGN A.
• To the center to equally mix the two.
Notes on Mixing
• If you set CROSS FADER to A to play the
channel selected by ASSIGN A, then you
must set CUE ASSIGN to CH 1 to monitor
CH 1, to CH 2 to monitor CH 2, to CH 3 to
monitor CH 3, and to CH 4 to monitor CH
4. The same applies when you set
CROSS FADER to B.
Using the Tone Controls
Your mixer has a set of tone controls for
each microphone and for channels 1–4. You
can tailor the high, middle, and low frequency sounds for each.
For normal sound, leave BASS, MID, and
HIGH set to 0.
Rotate HIGH, MID or BASS toward +10 to increase, or toward –10 respectively to decrease the high, middle, and low frequency
sounds.
Using Gain
Since the input levels of each sound source
are different, the GAIN controls let you fine
tune each selected input's volume. Rotate
the desired GAIN control toward MAX to increase the volume and toward MIN to reduce
it.
Operation
11
32-3008.fm Page 12 Thursday, April 6, 2000 4:03 PM
Note: We recommend you not adjust the
GAIN controls after you have preset the inputs as some sound imbalance could occur.
Setting the Sound Balance
BALANCE lets you adjust the sound balance
between the left and right speakers. If your
speakers are properly positioned and your
listening area is centered between the
speakers, the center setting of the control is
usually the best.
Using TALKOVER
To use the microphone and reduce other audio inputs so the microphone can be heard
more clearly, set TALKOVER to ON.
To turn off TALKOVER, set TALKOVER to
OFF. All the audio inputs including DJ MIC
and AUX MIC play at the same output level,
and the background music volume is not reduced.
Using MUTE LEVEL
If the sound seems to be louder from one
speaker, adjust BALANCE until the sound
seems to be coming from a point midway between the speakers.
USING A MICROPHONE
Using PAN
Using an XLR Microphone
To mix the microphone connected to the
XLR jack with other audio input sources, adjust DJ MIC LEVEL to increase or decrease
the microphone volume without affecting the
volume of the other inputs.
Set DJ MIC LEVEL to 0 when you are not using the DJ microphone. Or, if the microphone
has an ON/OFF control, set it to OFF and
leave DJ MIC LEVEL at its preset position.
Using an AUX Microphone
To mix a microphone connected to the AUX
MIC jack with other audio input sources, set
AUX MIC/LINE to MIC. Adjust AUX LEVEL to
increase or decrease the microphone volume without affecting the volume of the other
inputs.
When you are not using an AUX microphone,
set AUX MIC/LINE to LINE. This lets you mix
the output from the device connected to AUX
LINE MONO jacks.
12
To increase background music when using
TALKOVER, rotate MUTE LEVEL toward MIN.
To reduce background music, rotate it toward MAX.
To play either microphone or the AUX LINE
output on the left or right channel, adjust the
appropriate PAN control. Set it to L to play
through the left channel, to R to play through
the right channel, or to any other position between L and R to play through both channels.
USING SOUND EFFECTS
There are six preprogrammed sound effects
for your mixing selection — a hi-hat close, a
rim shot, a cow bell, a cymbal, a bass drum,
and a laser drum.
To play a sound effect, repeatedly press or
hold down the desired SOUND EFFECT button.
Rotate SOUND EFFECT LEVEL left or right to
increase and decrease the sound effect volume.
USING ECHO EFFECTS
The mixer plays echo effects, and lets you
adjust the echo delay, the number of echo
repeats, and the echo's volume.
Operation
32-3008.fm Page 13 Thursday, April 6, 2000 4:03 PM
The echo is applied to the sound before all
the inputs are mixed.
Playing Input Signals through the
Sound Effect Device
Set ECHO to MIC to turn on the echo effect
for the microphones and the AUX LINE input.
You can play inputs selected by the channel
selectors, DJ MIC, or AUX through other
sound effect devices connected to the mixer,
such as an echo reverb or a digital sampler
processor, and control playback through the
mixer. To play selected inputs through the
sound effect device, set SEND ASSIGN to the
selected input.
Set ECHO to MUSIC to turn on the echo effect
for Channels 1, 2, 3, and 4 outputs.
To turn off the echo effect, set ECHO to OFF.
Adjusting the Echo Delay, Repeat,
and Volume
The ECHO DELAY control lets you adjust the
time delay for an echo. Set ECHO DELAY to 0
for a minimum time delay and to 10 for a
maximum time delay.
The SEND control lets you adjust the volume
of the selected sound to the sound effect device without changing the device's volume.
Rotate SEND toward 10 to increase the volume and toward 0 to decrease it.
The ECHO REPEAT control lets you control
the length of time a tone is repeated (reverberation). Set ECHO REPEAT to 10 for the
longest time repeat and to 0 for the shortest.
The ECHO LEVEL control lets you adjust the
output level of the echo effect. Rotate ECHO
LEVEL toward 10 to increase the echo level
and toward 0 to decrease it.
USING SOUND EFFECT
DEVICES
Playing the Signal from the Sound
Effect Device
To play signals from a device connected to
the EFFECT jacks, set the RECEIVE switch to
ON. When you are not using the connected
inputs, set the RECEIVE switch to OFF.
Rotate RECEIVE to adjust the volume of the
input connected to the EFFECT jacks without
changing the sound effect device's volume.
Rotate RECEIVE toward 10 to increase the
volume and toward 0 to decrease it.

ˆ Care
REPLACING THE FUSE
To enjoy your mixer for a long time:
• Keep the mixer dry. If it gets wet, wipe it
dry immediately.
Your mixer requires a 250-volt, 0.5-amp fuse
to protect it from power surges and short circuits. If the mixer suddenly turns off or will
not turn on, the fuse could be blown. Replace
the fuse with a 0.5-amp, 250volt, fast-acting,
11/4 x 1/4 inch fuse (not supplied).
• Use and store the mixer only in normal
temperature environments.
• Handle the mixer gently and carefully.
Do not drop it.
Follow these steps to replace the fuse.
• Keep the mixer away from dust and dirt.
• Wipe the mixer with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
1. Using a Phillips screwdriver, unscrew
the fuse compartment cap on the back
of the mixer.
Modifying or tampering with the mixer’s internal components can cause a malfunction
and might invalidate its warranty. If your mixer is not performing as it should, take it to
your local RadioShack store for assistance.
2. Remove the old fuse and replace it with
an identical fuse.
Caution: Never use a fuse of a different
type or rating.
3. Replace the fuse compartment cap.
ˆ Troubleshooting
We do not expect you to have any problems with your mixer, but if you have a problem, this information might help. If the problem persists, take the mixer to your local RadioShack store for
assistance.
Problem
The mixer does not work.
Possible Solution
Check the AC power connection and make sure the AC outlet is
“live.”
Check the power connection to the rest of the system (amplifier/
receiver, input sources, and so on).
Check the fuse. See “Replacing the Fuse” on Page 14.
No signal from an audio input
sources.
Make sure the TALKOVER switch is set to OFF.
Check the mixer’s and the source’s control settings.
Check the connection between the mixer and the input source.
You are getting a hum from the
PHONO sources.
14
Make sure the turntable’s ground wire (usually black or green) is
