QUICK START
The MP 2016S has Split Cue! If you don’t know what that is, we
suggest you take the time to read this entire manual so you learn
lots of other things to get the best sound and features out of your
new mixer. But if you know what Split Cue is, at least read this
section to refresh your knowledge of the rest of the MP 2016S.
There are four dedicated phono preamplifiers. One each for
Input channels 1-4. Switches on the rear panel set each preamplifier for LINE or PHONO operation. Make sure you have these
switches set correctly for your application.
There are two dedicated MIC preamplifiers, one each for
Input channels 5-6. Rear panel switches set each preamplifier for
LINE or MIC operation. Make sure you have these switches set
correctly. MIC GAIN controls adjust each preamplifier for the
correct sensitivity. With a MIC selected and ENGAGED, set the
front INPUT GAIN control to “10” and adjust the rear MIC
GAIN to just keep the Input Channel SIG / OL indicator green,
not red. Set the rear panel tone controls as desired. The MIC
ENGAGE switch ducks the BOOTH Output by 12 dB unless
defeated with internal jumpers.
Before installing this mixer permanently, be sure to read the
MIC / LINE INPUTS section on page Manual-6.
All five stereo line-level AUX Inputs are available for each of
the six Input Channels.
Adjust the INPUT GAIN controls so they blink the green
SIG / OL indicators. If an indicator is red, the INPUT GAIN
control is set too high. This provides optimum signal to noise,
dynamic range and MIX LEVEL control consistency.
The BOOTH may select CUE or MASTER as its source.
CUE allows monitoring Inputs in the booth without headphones.
The XP 2016S switch engages the optional XP 2016S processor. If the XP 2016S is not connected, the switch has no effect.
The EFFECTS LOOP switch switches the Loop in (up) or
out (down). If nothing is connected to the EFFECTS LOOP
RETURN, the switch has no effect.
The MASTER MONO / STEREO switch influences both
BOOTH and HOUSE OUTPUTS. It does not affect the EFFECTS LOOP or TAPE OUTPUTS.
Two TAPE OUTPUTS are provided. One is a PRE-EFFECTS Loop and one is a POST-EFFECTS Loop. The POSTEFFECTS Loop Tape Output has a LEVEL control and may be
used as a pre-tone control AUX Output.
The MP 2016S Master Output uses Accelerated Slope ™ tone
controls that provide full “kill” for TREBLE, MID and BASS.
The MASTER SIG / OL indicator monitors the master mix
before and after the tone controls. This indicator should light
green most of the time. It is OK for it to flash red on occasion.
This provides optimum signal-to-noise and dynamic range.
HOUSE and BOOTH are the only level controls that do not
affect the MASTER SIG / OL indicator.
The HOUSE OUTPUT has both balanced (XLR) and
unbalanced (RCA) Outputs. To avoid hum, always use the balanced (XLR) Outputs for longer cable runs (typically greater
than 10 feet, or 3 meters).
Headphone cueing allows monitoring MASTER or CUE
sources. If MIX LEVEL controls are operated at less than “7”, be
sure to turn the PHONES LEVEL down before selecting a CUE
as it may be much louder than the Master Mix. The Headphone
Output is low-impedance high-current, so do not short the tip
and ring together or to ground.
WEAR PART
The MP 2016S contains no wear parts. The XP 2016S contains the following wear part subject to the ninety (90) day warranty period
described on page Service-1: (1) Active Crossover Assembly F 60X.

INPUT GAIN controls allow the user to match input levels.
Adjust these to make the SIG / OL indicator flash green. If the
indicators turn red, reduce the INPUT GAIN. Adjusting the
INPUT LEVEL controls correctly maximizes dynamic range
and provides consistent MIX LEVEL response.
Input SIG / OL
These dual-color indicators provide help in setting correct input
levels. A flashing green indication is optimal. A red light that
lasts more than a flash is a request to turn down the INPUT
GAIN.

HEADPHONE MONITOR
MONITOR determines the source of the PHONES signal. With
the MONITOR MONO switch out, the control pans between
stereo CUE and stereo PGM signals. The PGM signal follows
the HOUSE Output (same signal going to the Master House).
With MONITOR MONO selected (in), the MONITOR
control pans between mono CUE (left ear) and mono PGM
(right ear).
The Phones LEVEL control determines the headphone output level. If you are mixing with the MIX LEVEL controls below
“7”, be sure to turn the Phones LEVEL down before selecting a
CUE source as it may be much louder than the Master Mix.
The PHONES output is very low impedance and high
current so do not short tip and ring together or tie to ground, as
is common with many low- cost mono cups. Use resistors of
300 to 600 Ω in series with each output for mono applications,
although this significantly reduces output power.

IMPORTANT NOTE: CHASSIS GROUNDING
If after hooking up your system it exhibits excessive hum or
buzzing, there is an incompatibility in the grounding configuration between units somewhere.
If your equipment is in a rack, verify that all chassis are tied
to a good earth ground, either through the line cord grounding
pin or the rack screws to another grounded chassis.
Please refer to the RaneNote “Sound System Interconnection”
supplied with this manual and available from our website for
further information on system grounding.

OPERATION
RIAA PHONO/LINE INPUTS
Input channels 1 through 4 each have a dedicated preamplifier.
A rear panel switch allows setting these preamps for PHONO
or LINE level signals. Make sure you have the switch in the correct
position for your application. The source selectors for Input channels 1 - 4 may select the dedicated PHONO / LINE preamplifier
or one of the five stereo AUX Inputs as the source.
With normal program material playing, set the INPUT
GAIN control to a level that causes the SIG / OL indicator to
flash green. The SIG / OL indicator should not flash red. This
will ensure optimum signal to noise ratio and dynamic range. If
INPUT GAIN controls are set too high, you may not have the
required headroom for mixing multiple Inputs. If your levels are
set too low, signal-to-noise ratio is compromised.
In addition to optimizing noise and dynamic range, properly setting INPUT GAIN allows the MIX LEVEL control to
operate predictably over its entire range. The taper of the MIX
LEVEL control is non-linear and will have different attenuation
verses rotation characteristics depending on its position. As can
be seen in the figure below, if you are mixing between 30% and
60% of rotation, MIX LEVEL will behave much differently than
if operated between 65% and 95% of rotation.

MIC / LINE INPUTS
Input channels 5 and 6 each have dedicated preamplifiers. A rear
panel switch allows setting these Inputs for MIC or LINE level
signals. Make sure you have the switch in the correct position for
your application. While these Inputs are designed for use with
dynamic microphones (no phantom power) or wireless microphones with line level output, they will accept just about any
mono signal. While balanced operation is highly recommended,
these Inputs may be operated unbalanced with short cables to
the source (less than 10 feet or 3 meters). The source selectors for
Input channels 5 and 6 may select the dedicated MIC / LINE
preamplifier or one of the five stereo AUX inputs.
Prior to permanent installation, adjust the preamplifier
GAIN, BASS and TREBLE controls (located on the rear panel)
for the intended source.
In addition to the MIC / LINE switch, each preamplifier has
a rear panel MIC GAIN trim. To properly set the MIC GAIN,
set the front panel INPUT GAIN control to “10.” This allows
Manual-6
the INPUT GAIN SIG / OL indicator to accurately indicate the
signal level. Adjust the MIC GAIN so the red OL indicator just
stays off during the highest signal peaks (if a microphone is in
use, yell into it). The MIC GAIN control should only have to be
set once for the source in use. Use the front panel INPUT GAIN
control for trimming the gain after installation.
Next adjust the rear panel MIC 1 and MIC 2 BASS and
TREBLE controls for the desired tonal quality. If you add a lot
of BASS or TREBLE boost, you may want to readjust the MIC
GAIN control to avoid possible overloading.
MIC 1 and MIC 2 each have an ENGAGE switch to the
right of the Input Selector. For a mic signal to be active, the
selector must be set to MIC and the MIC ENGAGE switch set
to ENGAGE (up).
When either of the switches is set to the ENGAGE position, the BOOTH OUTPUT is ducked (attenuated) by 12 dB
(about ¼th ) to reduce potential feedback. If you do not want the
BOOTH OUTPUT to duck when a MIC source is engaged,
you can remove the top cover and set the internal jumper accordingly. There is an independent Ducker select jumper for MIC 1
and MIC 2.
It sounds like a lot of trouble to set the input stages up correctly, however, you will be amazed at how much better your
performance sounds.
MIX LEVEL
With the Input stages properly adjusted, you are free to use the
MIX LEVEL control for mixing. For most applications, channels
will be mixed at about 70% to 100% rotation. BOOTH and
HOUSE level controls then set the output volume. The MASTER SIG / OL indicator displays the signal level of the mix. The
Green SIG indicator should flash or remain on. The Red OL
indicator should remain off (it may flash occasionally, but if it is
on every beat it is too hot). To correct an overload condition, one
or more of the MIX LEVEL controls must be turned down. The
MASTER SIG / OL indicator monitors the signal before and
after the tone control, so if you use a lot of boost, remember to
monitor this indicator.
TONE CONTROLS
The MP 2016S uses high-performance tone control circuits
that isolate the signal into three bands. The level of each band
is independently controlled, and then recombined. This topology provides full “kill” for TREBLE, MID and BASS. If all
three bands are set to the same level, there will be no change in
frequency response, only amplitude. It is the difference in settings
that determines the tonal quality of the signal. These advanced
tone controls provide excellent dynamic response with fixed
phase shift. Control is smooth and predictable. The tone controls
can isolate beats, vocals and “high-hat,” as well as adjust general
tonal quality. Remember that the dedicated Mic tone controls
(on the rear panel) are used to equalize the Microphone Inputs.

Fader Cleaning
With heavy use in harsh environments, the faders may need
lubrication. This treatment extends longevity and can make used
faders as good as new. The fader assembly must be removed from
the XP 2016S for proper cleaning. We recommend:
Caig DeoxIT® Fader F-series spray lubricant

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
A. Fader assembly removal
1. Remove (2) 3mm screws.
2. Draw fader assembly out through hole.
3. Remove ribbon cable.
B. Fader cleaning
1. Hold the fader assembly away from the mixer.
2. Position the fader at mid-travel.
3. Spray cleaner/lubricant into both ends of the fader.
4. Move the fader over its full travel back and forth a few times.
5. Shake excess fluid from the fader assembly.
6. Wipe off excess fluid.
At this point the control should be operational. If fader performance is questionable then replacement of the pot is the only
sure remedy. The fader is available to purchase online in the Rane
Factory Store at rane.com. You may also call the Rane factory
if you are in the USA, or call your distributor outside the USA
(rane.com/internat.html).
