BASS PROCESSOR
(1) DRIVE: This control adjusts the intensity for bass processing. The optimal
working point is set when the green LED lights up regularly as loud bass
signal peaks occur. The longer the LED lights up, the longer the duration
of the bass signal at peak levels (Sustain), leading to a tighter and more
voluminous bass.
(2) TUNE: This control selects an upper cut-off frequency for bass processing.
The control range is from 50 Hz (MIN) to 160 Hz (MAX).
(3) MIX: This control defines the portion of the processed bass signal that
should be mixed with the original signal.

3. Practical Application
The SX3040 is classified as a psychoacoustic processor. These devices improve
sound with sophisticated signal modifications which are subjectively perceived
as clearer and more sonically pleasing. Algorithms based on the human sense of
hearing influence the quality and the time-based progression of the audio signals
without changing the level ratio. The sound is thereby perceived to be more
contoured and voluminous. Use the SX3040 for mastering in the studio, for live
sound to improve the reproduction quality of PA systems, as a link between
instruments and amplifiers or between playback and recording devices for
restoring old recordings.
3.1 Two separate unit functions
The SX3040 has two different processing sections for each channel: a BASS
PROCESSOR and a HARMONIC EXCITER. The advantage is that the output level
is not changed with SX3040 processing. Hence, overloading of loudspeakers
and other devices is avoided. Moreover, the sound modification is not static,
but dynamic and adapts automatically to different signals.
The BASS PROCESSOR works like a frequency-selective compressor. Depending on
the signal dynamics, an adjustable frequency range is compressed, shifted in
phase and mixed with the original signal. During the compression, peak levels
are temporally extended and hence perceived to be more intense. The phase shift
enhances the bass similarly to a chorus effect.
Exciter-enhanced sound has been a significant part of high-quality commercial
productions for decades. The HARMONIC EXCITER enhances the audio material
with additional harmonics in dependence of frequency. In instruments the
harmonic structure determines the character of the sound as well as the presence
and hence the punch. The more harmonics an exciter adds to the original signal
and the higher their levels, the more pronounced the signal character.
3.2 Application examples
The SX3040 can be incorporated into a set-up in two different ways:
• Series cable connection
• Parallel cable connection
In the following sections the two variants are described in greater detail.
3.2.1 Series cable connection (Insert mode)
The simplest form of series connection consists of a signal chain in which several
devices are connected in a row, e.g. keyboard  effects unit (SX3040) 
amplifier. An input signal is fed into the effects unit (SX3040) and a mixed signal
consisting of an input signal and a processed effect signal is sent to an amplifier
or a recording device (MD recorder, computer etc.) for reproduction.
Another type of series connection can be made by using the Insert point of a
mixing console or instrument amplifier. In this configuration the signal is sent
out from the mixer channel via a special Y-lead and a mixed signal (dry and
effect signals) is routed from the outputs of the effects unit (SX3040) back to the
mixer channel.
◊ With series connection the dry/wet mix is set with the MIX controls on
the effects unit (SX3040).
6
SONIC EXCITER SX3040 User Manual
3.2.2 Parallel cable connection (Aux Send Mode)
3.2.4 Studio application
Parallel connection can be made via the Aux path of a mixing console. A parallel
decoupled pure effect signal from the effects unit is mixed with the unmodified
dry signal via this separate effects bus. Mixing of dry and effect signals occurs on
the mixing console.
In a studio environment the SONIC EXCITER is ideal for mastering to enhance the
sound of recordings. The SX3040 can lend your music the professional polish of
high-quality productions in just a few steps. Even if you primarily work with a
digital audio workstation, you can perform the final mastering with the SX3040
and an external recorder.
◊ With parallel connection the portion of the effect signal that should be
added to the original signal is defined with the Aux Return controls on
the mixing console. The MIX control on the effects unit (SX3040) must
be set to “MAX” for this.
For this application connect the SX3040 before the mastering recorder.
Channels 1 and 2 must have the same settings, as this application involves stereo
processing. Otherwise, the original stereo image will be distorted.
◊ With the MIX controls you define the portion of the processed signal
3.2.3 Live sound
The SX3040 is ideally suited for use with live sound systems in clubs, discos,
live concerts and public performances. Here the unit not only can considerably
improve the signal quality, but also can compensate for the inadequacies of small
or weak PA systems.
that should be mixed with the original signal separately for the BASS
PROCESSOR and SONIC EXCITER sections.
For this application the unit is ideally employed between the mixing console mix
output and the amplifier input. If a graphic equalizer is also used, it should be
positioned after the SX3040.
Channels 1 and 2 must have the same setting since this application involves
stereo processing. Otherwise, the original stereo image will be distorted.

3.2.5 Stage operation with instrument amplifiers
3.3 Basic operation
Besides being ideal for use with stereo signals, the SONIC EXCITER is also suitable
for use with one or two individual signals, e. g. guitars. With electric guitars it can
be used in combination with a combo amp or a separate modelling processoramplifier combination to give the guitar sound more presence, fullness and
punch. A similar combination with a keyboard and an external amplifier
is possible.
Due to the small number of SX3040 controls, this is an easy processor to operate.
Because the two channels of the SX3040 work independently, even two different
mono signals can be processed.
Connect the SX3040 to the effects loop connections on your combo amplifier.
Determine whether the effects loop connections on your amplifier work in
series in Insert mode or in parallel in Aux Send mode. Then set the MIX controls
accordingly (see sections 3.2.1 and 3.2.2). If in doubt, refer to the instruction
manual for your amplifier.
If you are using a modelling processor, you must connect the processor output to
the SX3040 input and route the SX3040 signal to the amplifier.
Perform the following steps:
1) Connect the unit according to the application as described in section 3.2.
◊ First make the following settings for one channel (channel 1 or 2
depending on input assignment). For stereo applications choose the
same settings for the second channel.
2) Switch on all devices (amplifier and loudspeaker last) and ensure that the
IN/OUT switch (7) on the SX3040 is illuminated, i.e. that the unit is working
and all controls are set to “MIN”. For series connection set the MIX controls to
the middle positions; for parallel connection set them to “MAX” (see sections
3.2.1 and 3.2.2).
3) Turn the DRIVE control (1) until the desired bass saturation effect is
achieved and the green LED regularly lights up when peak levels occur.
4) Turn the TUNE control (2) to specify the frequency range for processing.
5) Turn the HARMONICS control (5) until the desired enhancement effect in
the high-frequency range is achieved.
6) Turn the TUNE control (4) to specify the frequency range for processing.
7) To compare the original and processed signals, repeatedly press the IN/OUT
button. Then adjust the dry/wet balance as desired.
8) Repeat steps 3) to 7) until you are satisfied with the result.
