Regulatory and Safety Notices
FCC Notice
Part 15 of the Federal Communication Commission Rules and Regulations has established Radio Frequency (RF) emission limits to provide an interference free radio frequency spectrum. Many electronic devices produce RF energy incidental to their intended purpose. These rules place electronic equipment into two classes, A and B, depending on the intended use. Class A devices are those that may be expected to be installed in a business or commercial environment. Class B devices are those that may be expected to be installed in a home or residential environment. The FCC requires devices in both classes to be labeled with the interference likelihood and additional operating instructions. The rating label on the equipment will show which class the product is (A or B). Class A product will not have an FCC logo. Class B equipment will have an FCC logo. The information statements differ on the two classes. Class A Equipment
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at personal expense. Euphonix is Avid.

Chapter 1: Hardware Connections and MC Client Setup
Schematics and parts are listed for each DAW setup in Appendix A: DAW Parts List
and Schematics.
1.1
Connect the MC
1.
Unpack the MC from its packaging and select a place to put it. The MC should
go on a hard flat surface inorder to allow proper ventilation. (System 5-MC has
its own frame for the MC and CM408T modules).
NOTE: The MC and CM408T modules require sufficient ventilation space on the bottom. The MC has detachable feet for standalone users without a System 5
frame, but the CM408T modules do not. If you do not use a System 5 frame,
you MUST have at least 1 inch of clearance under the CM408T modules and
MC or damage to the units may occur.
Use Figure 1-1 as a reference to connect the MC to its components.

Plug the power supply into the DC In port on the right side as you look at the
rear panel.
Be careful plugging this in as the connector has easily-bent pins. When the pins
are seated, twist the ring on the connector’s side until it locks. Do not turn on
the MC yet; network configuration must be completed first.
WARNING: Attach power supply to the MC BEFORE plugging into AC power or the
unit may be damaged.

1.2
Network Configuration
1.2.1
MC Standalone
Hardware Connections and MC Client Setup
Using the RJ-45 Ethernet (included) cables, connect your workstations to the LAN
ports on the Netgear RP614 router. Then connect the MC to one of the otherLAN ports
on the Netgear router. Because the Netgear has four LAN ports, you must use an additional Ethernet switch if you have more than three workstations.
NOTE: You have now created a small local area network comprised of just the MC
and your workstations.
The MC ships with DHCP enabled, allowing it to automatically obtain an IP address.
The Netgear RP614 has a DHCP server and hands out IP addresses to the devices connected to its LAN ports (the MC and your workstations). This allows for easy plug and
play network configuration. For this reason, the Netgear router must be turned on before the MC and your workstation.
1.2.2
System 5-MC
1.
Connect the MC andCM408T modules to LAN ports on the SonicWALL 1260
router.
2.
Connect your workstations to LAN ports on the SonicWALL.
The MC ships with DHCP enabled, allowing it to automatically obtain an IP
address. The SonicWALL ships from Euphonix with its DHCP server enabled,
such that it hands out IP addresses to the MC, CM408T modules, and your
workstations. For this reason the SonicWALL must be turned on before the
MC, CM408T modules, and your workstations.
1.3

Hardware Connections and MC Client Setup
Display Switching
The MC uses the Ontrack ADU-200 relay device to control a KVM (keyboard/video/
mouse) switch with an RJ-45 port, such as the Gefen eX-Tend-It series. To implement
this functionality:
1.
Connect the video outputs of your workstations to the KVM inputs.
2.
Connect the KVM video output to your main display.
3.
Connect the Ontrack ADU-200’s USB plug to the MC’s USB port (left side of
MC’s rear panel).
4.
Connect a shielded RJ-45Ethernet cable from the Ontrack’s RJ-45 port to your
KVM’s RJ-45 port.
The cable MUST BE SHIELDED or the switching will not function properly.
Check that the RJ-45 connectors have metal ends.
Now when a Workstation key is pressed, the MC sends a switch command to the KVM
and changes your display to reflect that KVM input.
NOTE: Since the MC does not know the order your workstations were connected to
the KVM, we recommend assigning the workstation attached to KVM input 1
to Workstation key 1, the workstation attached to KVM input 2 to Workstation
key 2, etc. Otherwise the MC will not control the desired workstation when the
display is switched.
1.6
Ready to Proceed

Chapter 7: Support and Troubleshooting
The MC is a professional control surface engineered with industrial-grade components,
and it should operate reliably in your studiosetup. It is, however, a complex device and
issues can arise due to environmental or other factors. Euphonix provides a one year
warranty on the MC and CM408T modules.
If you are having trouble with your MC, these sections can either resolve the problem
or provide useful troubleshooting information for our technical support personnel.
7.1
Support
Euphonix maintains a support section for the MC on our website:
http://www.euphonix.com/support/mc.htm. This page has the latest versions of:
•
the EuCon software (for both workstations and the MC);
•
this manual;
•
constantly expanding FAQ section.
You must sign up for a user account to download new versions of the EuCon software.
If you cannot find an answer for your question in this manual, consult the FAQ section
to see if it is answered there.
Those who purchased their MC through a VAR (value-added reseller), such as Guitar
Center Pro, are supported by that reseller. Euphonix does not provide service directly
to VAR customers. This avoids confusion between Euphonix and your VAR regarding
your MC and its support needs. System 5-MCs are supported only by Euphonix.
7.2
Troubleshooting
If you are having problems with your MC or System-5 MC:
1.
Look for a solution in the Common Issues and Solutions section below.
2.
Then try the Euphonix website’s FAQ or technical bulletins.
3.
If you still are unable to solve your issue, contact your VAR (if applicable) or
Euphonix for support.
Our technical support phone hours (650-855-0412) areMonday through Friday

Support and Troubleshooting
Common Issues and Solutions
My MC does not turn on.
Make sure the MC’s power connector is securely connected. Push on it lightly to seat
it, twist the outer ring to lock it onto the MC, and make sure the transformer is plugged
into the wall.
The MC cannot connect to a workstation; the workstation does not appear in the
MC's Workstation Setup screen.
•
•
•
•
Make sure the MC Client is installed on the workstation, and that the Windows
Firewall is not blocking the MC Client and EuCon Discovery applications.
The MC, CM408T modules, and workstation must be connected to the same
network segment (router/switch): the Netgear RP614 or SonicWALL 1260.
Both the workstation and MC must have thesame version of the EuCon software.
To further troubleshoot this issue, we recommend using a cross-over cable between the MC and one workstation, to remove network variables from the
equation. Once this setup is working, re-connect the MC and workstation(s) to
the switch/router, and verify proper operation.
The MC does not connect to Nuendo.
•
•
•
The Nuendo EuCon Adapter must also be installed when installing the EuCon
software on your workstation. Make sure Studio Monitor Pro isNOT installed,
as SME usurps Nuendo when installed on the same machine.
Make sure your Nuendo license includes EuCon connectivity, and that you
have added the EuCon device in Nuendo Device Setup.
Make sure the MC is properly connected to the workstation. The MC’s Main
Touchscreen should display the networkname of your workstation in the upper
left-hand corner.
The MC does not connect to Pyramix.
•
The Pyramix EuCon Adapter must alsobe installed when installing the EuCon
software on your workstation. Make sure Studio Monitor Pro isNOT installed,
as SME interferes with Pyramix-MC connectivity.
•
Verify that the Pyramix connection procedure has been properly executed, and
that the MC is properly connected to the workstation.
The talkback mic does not produce any audio.
The talkback mic is a condenser microphone and the XLR output is at mic level so it
must be connected to a pre-amp with +48V phantom power.
