Introduction
The Atlas Sound AA-GPN1200 analog signal generator is ideal to use for many basic
Sound Masking systems. The analog topology design eliminates repeating cycles commonly
found in other manufactures digital designs. The AA-GPN1200 supports selections between
Pink or White noise signals. This generator incorporates a variable balanced output and will
deliver a 1V balanced output allowing it to match input circuits of Atlas Sound equalizers
and amplifiers. Also a variable Hi-Cut filter when engaged, supports most equalizing
requirements for most basic Sound Masking systems. The EQ filter operating range is
between 1 kHz and 8 kHz with a slope of 6 dB per octave.
This small but effective generator can be used standalone or rack mounted. If multiple
zones are required up to three AA-GPN1200 can be mounted onto a single 1 RU panel.
The balanced output connection is via a Phoenix type (Euro block) connector. Rearmounted controls also help prevent unauthorized tampering.

Applications
The analog noise generator Model GPN-1200B can be used for audio equipment testing or
as the signal source in Sound Masking systems. It provides the output level necessary to
match the input circuits of most commercially available equalizers and amplifiers. The unit is
recommended for use in Sound Masking systems using Atlas Sound masking loudspeakers
and amplifiers. Sound Masking systems are designed to help eliminate the auditory
distraction associated with open office plan environments as well as providing conversation
privacy in facilities such as schools, churches, restaurants, offices, etc. (Additional information
on masking loudspeakers and sound masking in general is available upon request.)
Installation Options
The AA-GPN1200 has two methods of installation. It can be used as a standalone unit
or mounted in a rack. The included 19" 1 RU rack mount panel can support from one to
three AA-GPN1200 units. To mount an AA-GPN1200 to the 19" rack panel, first remove
the four front panel screws and the AA-GPN1200 face plate and then mount the AAGPN1200 chassis to the 19" panel using the same four screws. Discard the unused panel,
if desired.

4.
Gain Control – A gain control has been incorporated to adjust the level of the
signal. Clockwise increases the signal. Note: When the gain is turn fully counter
clockwise there will still be some signal present at the output.
5.
EQ – This potentiometer allows one to adjust the noise parameter to meet a
basic masking spectrum. This Hi-Cut filter adjusts from 7 kHz to 1 kHz at 6 db
per octave. Note: If more equalization is necessary we suggest using an Atlas
EQM131, a 31 band graphic equalizer, after the AA-GPN1200 balanced output.
Note: For the EQ range control pot to be in effect, the EQ filter switch #6 must be
in the POST EQ position. See the illustration showing the frequency curves to get a
complete understanding of the EQ range.
6.
Pre EQ & Post EQ – this slide switch allows one to select between Pre EQ and
Post EQ. POST EQ, the internal Hi-Cut filter is engaged limiting the frequency
bandwidth. In PRE EQ the internal EQ is bypassed allowing the full noise spectrum
at the output. See illustration on the next page.
7.
Balanced Output – This removable Phoenix style connector is a electronic
balanced output. If an unbalanced signal is needed connect the (G) and the (-)
terminals together.
Suggested optional accessory EQM131 - For most sound masking systems the EQ
on the AA-GPN1200 is adequate. For systems requiring more fine tuning of equalization
we suggest using Atlas Sound EQM131.
