Congratulations for your choice !
Vector is a professional system able to switch and patch stomp boxes.
It has been designed without compromises in the choice of components and circuit solutions.
Vector circuit uses hi-dynamic power buffer, built around class “A” mosfets.
This design delivers sonic hi performances, especially with vintage equipments
Vector’s buffers are supplied by hi voltage. This solution gives very high dynamic,
ten times more than the normal dynamic requests from your equipments.
The result is a sonically transparent signal path, with very low noise distortion and wide
frequency response.
All the critical switchings are made by opto-coupled switches, to avoid any type of “click”
and “pop”.
All the outputs to external systems are buffered and floating by a transformer. This is to
eliminate any type of “ground loop” and noise.
Vector has a small power amp (1W) useful to play with a headphone or a monitor.
This “monitor” section can be used when there isn’t the possibility to connect the
system to external amps.
Vector has the Emulated line out that allows to play directly into the mixer or for
recording session.
Vector logic is built around a microprocessor, that stores up to 28 presets related
midi program change, and drives the display and the hardware.
Another exclusive feature of Vector is the “Insert Split” that physically splits
the effects in two groups. The first is for synthesis effects like distortions, compressors, eq,
etc; while the second is for the modulation effects like delays, chorus, etc.
Vector puts the first group before the input of the amp, while the second group is in the loop
of the amp. In this way you can use the preamp and the loop of the amp together with
pedals. Absolutely unbelievable!!
Vector has three type of power supply for pedal effects, and it is supplied
with set of cable for this purpose.
9VdC (max 500mA),12VdC (max 500mA) power supply for pedals,9VaC (max 1A) for POD, and
other special effects.
Attention: You may supply only a single appliance.

WHAT HAPPEN WHEN YOU TURN ON THE VECTOR
When you turn on the Vector, using the power switch on the rear panel,
the Vector executes a control procedure as follow :
count down on the display : 39 38 27 26 25 14 13 12 01
lighted sequence of the red lights from right to left.
At the end of this procedure you’ll be in “loop mode” and you’ll see
on the display just two red points.
THREE OPERATION MODES
The “STATUS SW” switch, let you move between three
difference operation modes :
LOOP

INSERT SPLIT FUNCTION
The INSERT SPLIT is a function of the Vector, unique in its kind,
that lets you manage your foot pedals set-up, in a correct and efficient way.
Connecting an amplifier to the INSERT SPLIT ( see example 2 in the following pages)
the Vector puts:
-
Loop 1-2-3-4 before the input amplifier
-
Loop 5 - 6 in the amplifier’s loop,
with the automatic adjust of levels and impedances.
We suggest that you use loops 1-2-3-4 for synthesis foot pedal effects as :
compressor, wha, distortion and booster,
while Loops 5-6 for modulation foot pedal effects as : chorus, flanger and delay.
On the Vector the INSERT SPLIT area is indicated as follow:
amp IN
amp SEND
amp RET
to the input of the amplifier
to the Send of the amplifier
to the Return of the amplifier
The connection chain will be as shown in the following diagram.
WARNING
Using an amplifier with the Insert Split connection the B system output doesn’t work.

HOW TO RECALL A LOOP IN REAL TIME ( LOOP MODE)
When you are in Loop Mode,
you can select in real time the following functions :
-
remote switch SW1 and SW2
one or more loops of the six available
A or B output system
MUTE function
SYSTEM BYPASS function
HOW TO STORE A PRESET
You can decide which loops or controls select in a preset.
To store a preset follow the below instructions:
-
Turn on the Vector ( Loop Mode).
-
Select loops from 1 to 6 ( indicated by green lights on the panel).
-
Select SW1 and/or SW2 (indicated by yellow lights on the panel),
i.e. to control the channel switching of a head.
-
Select the A or B system by switch no. 7.
When the green light is turned off it means that you selected the A system,
when it is turned on, you selected the B system.
-
Push and hold the “STATUS SW” switch for few seconds, the display will blink.
-
Use BANK UP and BANK DOWN to select one of the four banks (from 0 to 3).
-
Push and hold the preset number switch (from 1 to 7) to assign the preset number into the
selected bank. The display will stop blinking. This operation confirm you the good result
of the store.
N.B.
Every time that you recall a stored preset the Vector shows you which loop
has been selected. ( green and yellow lights).
8
HOW TO RECALL A PRESET
When you have stored a preset (see paragraph before) the Vector passes automatically to the
PRESET mode. Use BANK UP and BANK DOWN to recall the bank number.
Use switches from 1 to 7 to recall the stored preset number.
Note 1
In our electric test, during the production cycle, on the preset 01 we stored
the function : SW1, SW2, Loop 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and B system output.
Anyway you can change settings on the preset 01.
All the other presets are empty.
Note 2
When you are in LOOP mode you can pass in PRESET mode pressing STATUS SW one time.
Note 3
When you are in PRESET mode if you need to go back in STORE mode, before you have to
pass through the LOOP mode, pressing STATUS SW switch once , after pressing and holding
for the second time this switch for few seconds the display blinks (STORE mode).
HOW TO SET AN EFFECT IN SEND / RETURN MODE ON LOOP 6
Connecting an effect into the LOOP 6, using the control knob ”MIX%”, you can obtain a wide mix
level between the original sound and the effect.
Setting on 0% you have only the original sound while on 100% the sound will be completely
processed by the effect( Serial Mode).
Setting from 0 to 100% you will have a progressive mix between the original sound and
the effect (Parallel Mode).
When you select the Parallel Mode you have to set on zero “0” the Direct ( or Dry) level
on your effect to obtain o good sound.

BANK UP and BANK DOWN switches let you move up and down in the four banks
(from 0 to 3) when you are in PRESET mode.
The bank number appears on the display (left side).
The switches from 1 to 7 let you recall one of the seven presets on each bank.
The preset number appears on the display (right side).

After the store operation the Vector passes directly in PRESET mode.
If the Vector is in LOOP mode you have to press STATUS SW switch once to pass in PRESET mode.
Before recalling a preset you have to select the bank number using the BANK UP and BANK DOWN.
Each time you recall a preset, the lighted leds show you the loops and the functions stored.
If we consider the example B the functions lighted will be the following:
In these areas you can
write your presets.
Press the STATUS SW switch
if you desire to go back

EXAMPLE D USING VECTOR AS MIDI FOOT CONTROLLER
Recalling a preset in PRESET mode, Vector generates thru the MIDI OUT, on the midi channel 1,
the Program Change with the same number shown by the display.
All the 28 Program Change can be used to control other midi units.
