INSTALLING THE
MONTEGO II HOME
STUDIO
It is time to install the Montego II Home Studio sound card. This chapter
takes you through the process step-by-step.
OVERVIEW OF THE STEPS
There is a specific sequence of steps that you need to take when installing
the Montego II Home Studio sound card.
12
TURTLE BEACH SYSTEMS
HERE IS AN OVERVIEW OF THE STEPS:
1. Remove old sound card and drivers (optional.)
2. Install the Montego II Home Studio sound card and breakout bracket
in the computer.
3. Attach the audio cable to the CD-ROM drive (optional.)
4. Install the Montego II Home Studio drivers and software.
5. Set the Montego II Home Studio to be the default audio device if
there is another audio device in your system.
PRODUCT ID NUMBER
To install the software, you will need the Product ID
number. This number is located on the CD case that came
with the software.
REMOVING THE OLD BOARD
If you have another sound card in your system that you are replacing with
the Montego II Home Studio, remove that sound card’s drivers from your
system, remove that sound card, then reboot the system to make certain
no errors occur and no old sound card drivers remain. For information on
removing the sound card and its drivers, refer to the appropriate
documentation.
INSTALLING THE BOARD
Here’s how to install the Montego II Home Studio sound card and
breakout bracket in your system.
1. Turn off your PC and any connected peripherals and unplug the
system.
2. Remove the mounting screws from your computer’s cover.
Remove the cover.
13
3. Select an unused PCI expansion slot for the card. It should be near
another empty expansion slot which you’ll need to install the
breakout bracket. The second slot can be of any type because the
breakout bracket doesn’t actually plug into the motherboard. Also,
you should position the Montego II Home Studio card as far as
possible away from the
video card and power
supply!
16-bit ISA slot – DO NOT USE!
8-bit ISA slot – DO NOT USE!
PCI slots – use this type!
YES!
4. Remove the two
selected
expansion slot covers by unscrewing their
securing screws.
Save the screws to secure the Montego II Home
Studio board and breakout bracket to the
chassis later.
Unscrew the
expansion slot covers
5. Align the card’s gold-striped edge connector with
the selected PCI expansion slot socket. With
a gentle back-and-forth rocking motion, press
the Montego II board firmly into the slot until it
snaps in place.
6. Secure the Montego II sound card to the
chassis with the expansion slot cover
screw you removed earlier.
7. Slide the breakout bracket into the other
selected slot and secure it with the
remaining expansion slot cover screw.
Gently press the Montego II card
into the slot
8. Connect the Montego II Home Studio sound card and the
breakout bracket together using the included connector cable.
One end should be attached to the S/PDIF Interface connector on the
Montego II sound board. The other end should be attached to the
14
TURTLE BEACH SYSTEMS
breakout bracket as illustrated below. When connecting the cable
between the Montego II Home Studio and the breakout bracket, be
sure that the pins are aligned correctly and that you’ve matched the
key (notch) with the connector. Misaligning these pins WILL damage
the Montego II Home Studio, the breakout bracket, and potentially
your computer.
15
INSTALLING THE CD-ROM AUDIO CABLE
The Montego II Home Studio comes with an audio connector cable — one
end is keyed (MPC-2), the other is not (Sony). All CD-ROM drives that
adhere to the MPC-2 (Multimedia PC) standard have an MPC-2 jack.
Connect the MPC-2 connector to your CD-ROM drive. Then attach the
Sony connector to the Montego II sound card.

When connecting the CD-ROM audio cable, note that:
The audio cable should be plugged into the CD-ROM drive first; then
the other end of the interface should be plugged into the appropriate
connector on the Montego II Home Studio sound card. Make sure
that you are plugging the audio connector into the 4-pin header
labeled “CD IN.”
On the cable, “white” is “left” and “red” is “right.”
When connecting the cable to the Montego II Home Studio, the red
wire should be on the right (white should be closest to the slot cover.)

TO INSTALL THE DRIVERS IN WINDOWS 95:
WHICH VERSION OF WINDOWS 95 DO YOU HAVE?
Microsoft issued a maintenance release of Windows 95 referred to as
OSR2. This version shipped as the stock operating system on many PCs.
If you have this version of Windows 95 then the installation will be
slightly different than described below. However, the installation will go
smoothly if you simply follow the on screen instructions and, in all cases
where the system is looking for a file, just browse to the root of the
Montego II Home Studio CD.
1. Turn on the
computer and place
the Montego II
Home Studio
Applications CD in
your CD-ROM drive
if you did not
already.
When the New
Hardware Found
dialog box reports
that it sees the
Turtle Beach Montego II Quadzilla sound card, select Driver from disk
provided by hardware manufacturer. Then click OK.
2. When the Install from Disk dialog box displays enter the letter of your
CD-ROM drive, or click on Browse and locate your CD-ROM drive.
Click OK.
21
At this point, the install program will check for Direct X 6 or
later. If Direct X is already on your system the installation will
proceed. If Direct X 6 or later is not installed the setup will
prompt you to install it. Simply browse to the DIRECTX folder
on the CD and follow the on-screen instructions. At the end of
the Direct X install you will be prompted to reboot. Press OK
and continue the installation. At the end of the applications install
you must reboot the system.
3. Windows then copies the
files from the CD. You
may be prompted to
insert your Microsoft
Windows 95 CD or floppies, as the core sound
components of the operating system may need to
be copied as well. These
include the audio codecs,
joystick drivers, the
Mixer and the Sound Recorder program.
The files are located in the WIN95 directory on your Windows 95 CDROM.
If you do not have your Microsoft Windows 95 installation CD or floppies available, you can choose Skip File for each of the Windows 95
Sound Options and install them later from the Windows 95 Control
Panel, although this is not recommended.
4. The drivers are now installed. The Installation will continue to install
the applications. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the
install. Note that the product ID can be found inside the jewel case
of your applications CD.
5. At the end of the install you should reboot your system.
FINAL SOFTWARE INSTALLATION NOTES
At this point, the drivers should be installed and the Montego II Home
Studio sound card should be functional. After rebooting your system, the
22
TURTLE BEACH SYSTEMS
following devices should appear in the Device Manager: (Start > Settings
> Control Panel > System Icon > Device Manager Tab)
We recommend that you run the SoundCheck diagnostic located in the
TBS Montego II Home Studio program folder to test your system. To test
the system, you need to hook up headphones or speakers to the Montego’s
output. For more information on hooking up speakers, refer to the
“Making Connections” chapter later in this Guide.

TESTING AND TROUBLESHOOTING
If the Montego II Home Studio or your system is not working properly,
there is probably a resource conflict in your system. This means that two
or more devices in the system are using the same resources. Resource
conflicts are fairly typical and are a normal part of the PC hardware
installation process. These conflicts can be easily resolved.
There are several possible types of conflicts that users experience when
installing the Montego II Home Studio:
Input/Output Port Address Conflict
Interrupt (IRQ) Conflict
Troubleshooting your system involves checking the current settings for
each of these common conflicts and trying new settings for the resources
that conflict. Note that you may need to try a number of different resource
configurations before all of the peripherals work together in your PC.

MAKING CONNECTIONS
This section covers the topic of hooking up the Montego II Home Studio to
the rest of your audio system.
THE BACK PANEL
The following outlines the Home Studio’s back panel connections and
their typical applications.
Line Input — connects line level audio sources such as a mixer, tape
deck, CD player, etc. for playback or recording.
Mic In— connects a microphone directly for recording your voice, acoustic
instrument or acoustic sound source.
Line Output 1 — connect to powered speakers, a separate power
amp/speaker system or to headphones directly. In a four speaker
configuration these would be the front speakers.
MIDI / Joystick Connector — The MIDI/Joystick port provides both MIDI
I/O as well as a port for the joystick when used with the included MIDI
adapter cable. If you’re not using external MIDI devices you can also hook
a joystick directly to this port. If you want to connect a joystick to the

ABOUT THE INCLUDED CABLES
The Home Studio comes bundled with four cables.
34
TURTLE BEACH SYSTEMS
1. A CD-Audio cable for connecting the CD-ROM audio output to the
CD-ROM input jack. (See the section on Installing the CD-ROM Audio
Cable)
2. A stereo 1/8” to dual RCA jacks cable for connecting to the line input.
This will provide standard RCA connections for running cables to
other audio sources.
3. A second stereo 1/8” to dual RCA jacks cable for connecting to the
line output. Again this provides standard RCA connectors for
connecting to a mixer or amplifier.
4. A MIDI connector – Connect this harness to the MIDI/Joystick port on
the Montego II sound board. This will provide a MIDI Input and a
MIDI Output as well as a thru connector for connecting a joystick.
RECOMMENDED ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT CHECKLIST
MIDI keyboard/controller – For controlling the internal synthesizers.
Audio Mixer – Many manufacturers are now offering small high
quality mixers for under $300. A mixer will provide XLR inputs for
your microphones, equalization and easy level adjustments when
recording. A mixer is also helpful for mixing in other external
synthesizer sources when mixing down. Lastly, mixers usually have
headphone pre-amps for monitoring through headphones while
recording.
High Quality Microphone – A good quality mic is critical for a good
recording. Don’t even bother with a “computer microphone”. You can
purchase a good mic at a music store for around $100.
High Quality Monitoring System – Good quality powered monitors or
an amp/speaker system are also an integral part of a good recording
setup.
Headphones – When recording from a microphone you’ll need to use
headphones to monitor. The “closed ear” type are best for avoiding
feedback.
Mixdown Deck – After you’re done with your multitrack recording
you’ll want to mix it down to two track stereo for listening. There are
many options including; DAT, Minidisc and writable CD-ROM for
digital mixdown or a reel to reel or cassette deck for analog mixdown.
35
Cables & Adapters—You should map out which cables, connectors
and adapters you’ll need to connect all your gear. You’ll also save
yourself some headaches and money if you figure out where all your
gear is going to be set up ahead of time. Then determine how long
your cables need to be.

USING THE MONTEGO II
HOME STUDIO
The Montego II Home Studio provides everything you need to turn your
PC into a complete desktop recording studio. With multi-track MIDI and
audio recording, digital effects, on-board synthesis and sampling, direct to
digital I/O, you’ve got all the tools to create professional sounding
recordings.
Now that you have the tools, what can you do with them? Well, to explain
every detail of the recording process is beyond the scope of this manual.
However we can offer a brief example of what can be done with the
Montego II Home Studio. This should help orient you to the recording
process and the capabilities of the system.
As you work with the Home Studio and get to understand it’s capabilities
you should also read up on recording and recording techniques. There are
many good books and web sites on the subject.
Also, learning recording techniques typically involves experimenting and
trying different things. Experimenting is a natural part of the creative
process and will help you hone your recording skills.

TURTLE BEACH SYSTEMS
AN EXAMPLE RECORDING SESSION
The following is a hypothetical step-by-step example of the process of
recording a typical pop style arrangement. Note that this is not intended
to be a tutorial, but rather an overview to illustrate how the features and
functions provided with the Montego II Home Studio work together in the
recording process.
DRUMS
First I’ll lay down the drums. This will give me a groove to play my other
tracks against. I’ll create this as a MIDI track and take advantage of one of
the 15 built in GS drum kits in the Cancun board.
Rather than play the part, I can load one of the 50 MIDI drum templates
included with the system. Then I’ll set the drum set to the big rock kit.
I’ll copy and paste the tracks on the end to make the part longer. Now I
have a complete drum track.
BASS
Next, I’ll put down a bass line. I’d like a real fat sounding electric bass
guitar so I’ll run the Bank Downloader application and download an
electric bass patch included in the instrument library.
I’ve got a MIDI keyboard connected to the Montego II so I’ll play the
patch from the keyboard and record it on a second track. Since I’m a lousy
keyboard player I can go back and fix the bad notes using the piano roll
window. This window displays all the notes in my track. Here I can add,
delete and change notes easily with the mouse.
PIANO
Now I’ll add a simple piano part. Again, I’m not a very good keyboard
player so this time I’ll slow the tempo down to a crawl and record the part
at the slower tempo. When I’m done I’ll crank the tempo back up.
After restoring the tempo I noticed that my rhythm playing was off a bit. I
can fix this by highlighting the track and applying the Quantize
Transform. This will clean up the rhythms by moving the notes onto the
divisions of the beat.
39
To fatten the part up a bit, I’ll make a separate copy of the entire track
and assign it to a different piano sound. Now I have two tracks playing the
same part on two different instruments. Lastly, I’ll pan them hard right
and left to get a nice stereo spread.
RHYTHM GUITAR
Synthesizers generally don’t replicate guitar sounds very well so I’ll
record the guitar part as a digital audio track. After recording the part I
notice that I played the last chorus section a bit sloppy. I’ll just delete that
section, copy the part from an earlier chorus section and paste it into the
last chorus.
Like the piano part, I can make a copy of this rhythm guitar track and
paste it into another track. Then apply a slight echo effect with the digital
delay transform to one track and a chorus effect to the other track. If I pan
the two tracks hard right and left I’ll get a nice stereo guitar effect.
LEAD VOCAL
Now that my rhythm tracks are done, I’ll lay down a lead vocal part.
Once I’ve finished recording the part I can smooth out the volume levels
with the Compressor/Limiter Transform in Digital Orchestrator. This will
smooth out the dynamics and allow me to boost the vocal gain in the final
mix.
Next, I’ll add a bit of digital delay for ambience, again using the Digital
Delay Transform.
BACKGROUND VOCALS
Adding a full sounding background part creates a very professional
sounding recording. Because layering and editing is so simple in Digital
Orchestrator creating this part is easy.
I’ll record one vocal part a fifth above the lead vocal for one chorus
section. Then I’ll do it again and merge the two tracks so I have two
unison vocal parts on one track.
Then I’ll do the same process with a different part—say a third above. I
now have four vocal parts of one chorus section.
40
TURTLE BEACH SYSTEMS
Now I’ll merge all of these tracks to one track. Then repeat the entire
process again.
Once I do that I have two tracks, each containing 4 vocal parts (total of 8).
I’ll pan them hard right and left to get a nice stereo spread, then copy and
paste the new background vocals into each chorus section in the song.
This renders a big sounding background vocal part with only a fraction of
the time spent, because I didn’t have to keep repeating the chorus part for
the whole song for 8 different tracks!
LEAD GUITAR
The song is nearly done. The lead guitar track is the last part needed.
Once I lay down the track I can add a flanging effect and a short delay,
once again using the digital delay transform.
MIXDOWN
Now that my song is pretty much complete, I’ll spend some time adjusting
the relative volume levels of each track and tweak the pan settings to get
a nice stereo image in my mix. Once this mix is complete I’ll want to
“mixdown” to a two-track stereo recording. The Home Studio provides a
number of mixdown options.
Export Wave Mixdown
The Export Wave feature in Digital Orchestrator Pro will create a digital
mixdown by merging all of the tracks in your composition. It takes into
account your volume and pan settings so your mix sounds just like the
multi-track playback.
If you had MIDI tracks in your composition you’ll need to record them as
digital tracks first so they can be included in the mixdown. This is easily
accomplished by setting up Digital Orchestrator to record two track
stereo, muting the existing digital tracks and recording the MIDI parts as
digital audio tracks.
Now that you have a WAV file mixdown you can create an audio CD with
a CD Recordable drive or convert the file to a web ready format and post
it on the internet.
41
Digital Output to DAT
The Montego II Home Studio includes a S/PDIF digital I/O port for
outputting a digital signal to external recorders. For example, this signal
can be recorded by a digital audio tape (DAT) deck or Sony Minidisc®
recorder.
Analog Mixdown
Of course, you can also connect the line output of the Montego II board to
the record input of an analog tape deck and record the mix via the analog
signal.
CONCLUSION
Hopefully the above recording session example will help orient as you
start to explore the powerful features of the Montego II Home Studio.
What follows is an overview of the package components and tips on how
to get the most out of the system.
GET STARTED WITH THE DIGITAL ORCHESTRATOR
PRO VIDEO TUTORIALS
After installing the Home Studio if you’d like to get started recording
right away it’s recommended that you view the Digital Orchestrator Pro
video tutorials. These tutorials provide step by step instructions for
recording and editing both digital audio and MIDI tracks. You’ll be
recording your own music in no time! These files are accessed from the
42
TURTLE BEACH SYSTEMS
Video Tutorial menu program in the Turtle Beach Montego Home
Studio/Digital Orchestrator Pro directory.
Once you’ve mastered the basics of recording MIDI and digital audio
tracks you can explore some of the more advanced capabilities of the
studio hardware. These features are discussed below. Although you won’t
need to be concerned with most of these features at the start, it’s a good
idea to read the following material to get familiar with the system and it’s
capabilities.
ABOUT THE HARDWARE
THE MONTEGO II SOUND CARD
The Montego II board is the heart of the system and represents the latest
in PCI audio technology. It offers crystal clear digital audio recording and
playback with sample rates up to 48kHz at 16 bit resolution. A hardware
sampler provides 64 hardware voices of synthesis. This synthesizer is DLS
compatible which means you can download new DLS compatible
instrument sounds into the synthesizer for an unlimited palette of sounds.
In addition to the sampler synth, an extra 64 voice daughter card
synthesizer has been provided for a total of 128 hardware synthesizer
voices on 32 MIDI channels. That’s a lot of composing power! This
synthesizer features Roland® GS compliant instrument patches including
285 different instrument sounds and 15 different drum kits!
ACCESSING THE TWO ON-BOARD SYNTHESIZERS
Each synthesizer has it’s own software driver to access the synth from
Digital Orchestrator Pro. You can set a track to be played by a particular
synthesizer by selecting it’s port in the port settings for that track. Here
are the port names as they would appear in Digital Orchestrator:
Turtle Beach Montego II Digital I/O MPU-401: The Cancun FX - Roland
GS compliant daughter synth
(This device is also assigned to the MIDI mapper device. Selecting the
MIDI Mapper will send to the daughter synth via the TBS Montego II
MPU-401 driver)
Turtle Beach Montego II Digital I/O MIDI: The Montego II DLS sampler
synth
43
Note that the daughter synth shares the MPU-401 output port with the
external MIDI device. If you would rather drive an external synthesizer
with this port you can simply mute the daughter synth in the mixer
application.
USING THE DLS INSTRUMENT DOWNLOAD
FEATURE
DLS is a powerful feature in the Montego Home Studio which lets you
download new instruments into the sampler synthesizer. A library
containing dozens of additional instruments has been included. In
addition, you can create your own DLS banks using any DLS editor. There
are two ways to download DLS banks into the Montego: via the Bank
Library application or via the Control Panel.
DOWNLOADING FROM THE MONTEGO II HOME STUDIO
BANK LIBRARY APPLICATION
The most convenient way to download banks is with the bank library
application. You can launch this program from the Montego Home Studio
program group. Select a bank from the library and press download. You
can audition the banks right there by playing a MIDI file, or launch Digital
Orchestrator Pro to audition from a MIDI keyboard.
DOWNLOADING INSTRUMENTS FROM THE CONTROL PANEL
DLS compatible instrument patches can be downloaded from the Montego
II Control Panel. From the Windows Start Menu select the Settings |
Control Panel. Then double-click the TBS Montego II Audio icon and
select the MIDI Tab.
Click on the Download button. This will display a File Open box where you
can select the file. Click OK and the file is downloaded. You should be able
to go to Digital Orchestrator Pro, select the TBS Montego II MPU-401
MIDI synthesizer as your port and audition the new sounds.
Note that the patch names will not reflect the names of the actual
patches. If you want to create a patch name template to match the bank,
you can do so by editing the Vseqptch.ini file in the Digital Orchestrator
Pro directory.
44
TURTLE BEACH SYSTEMS
CANCUN FX WAVETABLE DAUGHTER BOARD
The Cancun wavetable daughter board on the Montego II provides an
additional 64 hardware voices. This synthesizer also provides a Roland GS
compliant sound palette with over 128 General MIDI sounds with 225
variation sounds including sound effects and more than 200 drums
sounds in 15 drum sets + 1 SFX set.
To access all these sounds simply select the TBS Montego II Digital I/O
MPU-401 port on any track in Digital Orchestrator Pro and right click on
the patch column. Below lists all of the available instruments in the
daughterboard synthesizer.
The appendix at the back of this guide provides a complete listing of all
the instruments found in the Cancun synthesizer.
WORKING WITH REAL-TIME EFFECTS
Both synthesizers on the Montego II Home Studio provide real-time
effects. This means your synthesizer tracks can be enhanced with effects
such as Reverb, Chorus and more. The effects functionality on the two
synthesizers is slightly different:
MONTEGO II DLS SAMPLER EFFECTS
There are two effect processors on the Montego II synthesizer/sampler.
These effects are controlled from the Montego II Control Panel’s MIDI tab
(Start | Settings | Control Panel | TBS Montego II Audio | MIDI Tab). The
effects are global, which means that the effect and effect level are shared
between all instruments on 16 channels. The effect level can be controlled
via MIDI or from the control panel. There are a number of different effects
that can be selected. These include:
Delay
Room Reverb
Chamber Reverb
Hall Reverb
Chorus
Cabinet
Distortion
Wah-wah
Flanging
45
CANCUN DAUGHTERBOARD SYNTHESIZER EFFECTS
The Cancun daughterboard synthesizer includes two channels of effects.
These are channelized effects, meaning the effect level for each MIDI
channel can be adjusted individually. The default effects are reverb and
chorus however, effects can be changed via Sysex using Digital
Orchestrator Pro’s Sysex window.
See the demo sysex programs provided in the C:\Program Files\Turtle
Beach Montego II Home Studio\Digital Orchestrator Pro\Sysex\Cancun\FX
directory.
GRAPHIC EQ
A 10 band graphic EQ, located in the AudioStation application provides
tone control over the wave output and the sampler synth output of the
Montego Home Studio. A four band EQ is available for the Cancun
daughterboard synth via sysex.
See the demo sysex programs provided in the C:\Program Files\Turtle
Beach Montego II Home Studio\Digital Orchestrator
Pro\Sysex\Cancun\EQ_Surnd directory.
S/PDIF DIGITAL I/O
The S/PDIF digital I/O enables digital transfer of data to and from the PC
without signal degradation. For convenience, both the Coax and Optical
style connectors are provided for connecting to all sorts of digital devices
such as Sony Minidisc® or DAT.
The output sampling rate can be set to 32kHz, 44.1 or 48kHz. This is
done in the Montego II Home Studio Audio Control Panel applet in the
Digital Out tab.
It is possible to have both RCA and Optical inputs connected
to external devices simultaneously. However, since the input
source searches for a time clock with which to sync to, if
both devices are turned on, neither input will work. If you
would like to have both devices always plugged in, turn off
whichever unit you are not using at the time.
46
TURTLE BEACH SYSTEMS
The S/PDIF output feature and the second (quad) output are
mutually exclusive. When using the S/PDIF output port make
sure the Montego II Control Panel is NOT in Quad Speaker
Mode.

It sets the number of voices as well as the quality level of those voices.
These settings directly affect the amount of CPU utilization. It is
recommended that you work in 64 voice mode when doing MIDI
recording. You will likely experience MIDI note latency when working in
the other two modes which were intended for game playback only.
320 Voice, Pro Quality – The wavetable engine is optimized for 320
voices and premium quality. This mode has the highest CPU
utilization.
128 Voice, Game Quality – The wavetable engine is optimized for 128
voices with lower CPU utilization.
64 Voice, Pro Quality – The wavetable engine is optimized for 64
voices. (Recommended for MIDI recording)

WAVETABLE EFFECTS
The Montego II Home Studio offers advanced global effects. These
controls allow fine tuning of the effects.
Effects Checkbox – You can disable the effects with this checkbox.
When disabled, no effects are heard even if a program or MIDI file
requests them.
Effects Selection – The effect selection dropdown box allows you to
select from a number of effect algorithms including, Reverb, Delay,
Hall Reverb, Flange Distortion and more. Reverb and Chorus are the
default settings and are most useful for general MIDI playback.
Effects Sliders – These sliders increase the amount of the selected
effect over the levels set by a program or MIDI file. A zero setting
selects the same amount of chorus and reverb as set in the program
or MIDI file. Moving the sliders up increases the effects level until the
effect reaches its maximum possible level. If a program or MIDI file
sets the maximum possible reverb and chorus, the sliders have no
effect. These settings can be changed while a song is playing.
A3D SETTINGS TAB
OUTPUT MODE
The Montego II Home Studio is capable of optimizing it’s A3D Interactive
positional audio technology for 2-speaker, 4-speaker or headphone output.
This setting lets you select the target output. For optimum performance
change target output settings whenever you switch between speakers and
headphones. The different modes are:
Headphones: Use this selection if you are listening through headphones.
Monitor speakers: Use this selection if you are listening through speakers
placed close together.
53
Satellite speakers: Use this selection if you are listening through speakers
placed far apart. (Default setting)
Quad speakers: Use this selection if you are using the second line output
for monitoring or if you are listening through four speakers. For optimal
experience, place two speakers in front of you and two speakers behind
you.
The Montego II Home Studio ships in Stereo Satellite Speaker
mode. If you connect four speakers or anything else to the
second output (on the breakout bracket), be sure change to
Quad Speaker mode in the control panel.
The S/PDIF output feature and the second (quad) output are
mutually exclusive. When using the S/PDIF output port make
sure the control panel is NOT in Quad Speaker Mode.
3D AUDIO - TWO SPEAKERS VS. HEADPHONES
When using two speakers for 3-D audio, your left ear hears the sound
coming from the left speaker but also some of the sound coming from the
right speaker. The same holds true for you right ear, it also hears sounds
coming from the left speaker. This diminishes the 3-D effect.
To achieve the maximum 3D effect the use of headphones is
recommended. When using headphones the sound coming from the left
are only heard by your left ear just as the sounds coming from the right
are only the heard by your right ear. This results in a much more
immersive experience.
A3D SPLASH
By default, when an A3D enabled application starts up, the A3D logo
displays and a audio signature plays. You can deactivate the audio
signature and A3D logo at startup using these checkboxes. These settings
have no effect on the actual A3D sound.

HARDWARE WARRANTY
Voyetra Turtle Beach, Inc. ("Voyetra") warrants to the original end-user
purchaser ("Purchaser") that the Turtle Beach Systems Montego II Home
Studio ("Product") will be free of defects in materials and workmanship for
a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase by Purchaser ("Warranty
Period").
Should a defect occur during the Warranty Period, the Purchaser must fax
a copy of the dated proof of purchase in order to obtain a Return
Merchandise Authorization ("RMA") from Voyetra. The Purchaser is
responsible for all costs incurred in returning the defective Product to and
from the authorized Voyetra service center, or to the repair facility located
70
TURTLE BEACH SYSTEMS
at Voyetra's corporate headquarters. The Product must be returned in a
static-proof bag, similar to the one included with the original packaging. A
copy of the dated proof of purchase must be included with the defective
Product and the RMA number must be clearly indicated on the outside of
the package. All packages sent without an RMA number will be Returned
to Sender.
In the event of a defect, Purchaser's sole and exclusive remedy and
Voyetra's sole liability is expressly limited to the correction of the defect
by adjustment, repair, or replacement of the Product at Voyetra's sole
option and expense.
This warranty does not cover, and Voyetra is not responsible for, damage
caused by misuse, neglect, fire, acts of God, or unauthorized modification
of the Product or damage resulting from the use of the Product with
hardware or software programs not provided or specifically recommended
by Voyetra.
Except as specifically provided herein, there are no other warranties,
expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, any implied warranties
or merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose and in no event shall
Voyetra be liable for indirect, incidental, consequential, or other damages,
including personal injury, lost profits and damages to property arising out
of any breach of this warranty or otherwise.
All software including operating systems or applications programs are
provided on an "As Is" basis without warranty. Some states do not allow
the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the
above exclusion or limitation may not apply to you. This warranty gives
you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which vary
from state to state.
