to use this product.
2. IMPORTANT: When connecting this product to
accessories and/or another product use only high
quality shielded cables. Cable(s) supplied with this
product MUST be used. Follow all installation
instructions. Failure to follow instructions could void your
FCC authorization to use this product in the U.S.A.
CAUTION:
READ THIS BEFORE OPERATING YOUR UNIT
1. To ensure the finest performance, please read this
manual carefully. Keep it in a safe place for future reference.
2. Install your unit in a cool, dry, clean place - away from
windows, heat sources, and too much vibration, dust,
moisture or cold. Avoid sources of hum (transformers, v
motors). To prevent fire or electrical shock, do not expose to
rain and water.
3. Do not operate the unit upside-down.
3. NOTE: This product has been tested and found to
comply with the requirements listed in FCC Regulations,
Part 15 for Class "B" digital devices. Compliance with
these requirements provides a reasonable level of
assurances that your use of this product in a residential
environment will not result in harmful interference with
other electronic devices. This equipment
generates/uses radio frequencies and, if not installed
and used according to the instructions found in the
owner's manual, may cause interference harmful to the
operation of other electronic devices. Compliance with
FCC regulations does not guarantee that interference
will not occur in all installations. If this product is found
to be the source of interference, which can be
determined by turning the unit "Off" and "On", please try
to eliminate the problem by using one of the following
measures:
4. Never open the cabinet. If a foreign object drops into the
set, contact your dealer.
Relocate either this product or the device that is being
affected by the interference.
9. This unit consumes a fair amount of power even when the
power switch is turned off. We recommend that you unplug
the power cord from the wall outlet if the unit is not going to
be used for a long time. This will save electricity and help
prevent fire hazards. To disconnect the cord, pull it out by
grasping the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
Use power outlets that are on different branch (circuit
breaker or fuse) circuits or install AC line filter(s).
In the case of radio or TV interference, relocate/reorient
the antenna. If the antenna lead-in is 300-ohm ribbon
lead, change the lead-in to coaxial type cable.
If these corrective measures do not produce satisfactory
results, please contact your local retailer authorized to
distribute Vocopro products. If you can not locate the
appropriate retailer, please contact Vocopro, 1728
Curtiss Court, La Verne, CA 91750.
5. Place the unit in a location with adequate air circulation.
Do not interfere with its proper ventilation; this will cause the
internal temperature to rise and may result in a failure.
6. Do not use force on switches, knobs or cords. When
moving the unit, first turn the unit off. Then gently disconnect
the power plug and the cords connecting to other
equipment. Never pull the cord itself.
7. Do not attempt to clean the unit with chemical solvents:
this might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
8. Be sure to read the "Troubleshooting" section on common
operating errors before concluding that your unit is faulty.
10. To prevent lightning damage, pull out the power cord
and remove the antenna cable during an electrical storm.
11. The general digital signals may interfere with other
equipment such as tuners or receivers. Move the system
farther away from such equipment if interference is
observed.
NOTE:
Please check the copyright laws in your country
before recording from records, compact discs,
radio, etc. Recording of copyrighted material may
infringe copyright laws.

Listening For A Lifetime
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you've just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it's
time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. VocoPro and the Electronic
Industries Association's Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a
safe level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing 'comfort level' adapts to a higher volume of sound. So what sounds
'normal' can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level
BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without
distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
• Pay attention to the different levels in various recordings.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for
a lifetime.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since hearing damage from loud
noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association's Consumer
Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for
your protection.
Some common decibel ranges:
Level
30
40
50
60
70
80
Example
Quiet library, Soft whispers
Living room, Refrigerator, Bedroom away from traffic
Light traffic, Normal conversation
Air conditioner at 20 ft., Sewing machine
Vacuum cleaner, Hair dryer, Noisy Restaurant
Average city traffic, Garbage disposals, Alarm clock at 2 ft.
The following noises can be dangerous under constant exposure:
Level
90
100
120
140
180
Example
Subway, Motorcycle, Truck traffic, Lawn mower
Garbage truck, Chainsaw, Pneumatics drill
Rock band concert in front of speakers
Gunshot blast, Jet plane
Rocket launching pad

clockwise to INCREASE and counter-clockwise to DECREASE level.
11. DELAY control - Use this control to adjust the DELAY setting of the ECHO effect. As DELAY adjusts the total begin-to-end length of
each echo interval, the more DELAY that is applied, the longer each ECHO interval will take to complete. Turn control clockwise to
INCREASE and counter-clockwise to DECREASE level.

Getting Connected cont...
Microphone/Instrument Input Connection
After making your main system connections, it is time to get your microphones and instruments connected and ready for performing. Before you get
started with your connections we recommend to take the following tips into consideration:
When connecting instruments, refrain from using defective cables as they can cause significant noise and loud pops, posing a threat to system
speakers.
When using effects devices for instruments, such as pedals/stomp boxes, use caution when connecting a chain of multiple effects devices as the
output voltage may change and possibly overload the GIG MAN's input channel.
When connecting a guitar, longer cables are recommended to prevent guitar feedback from occurring
The GIG MAN has one guitar (1/4"), one keyboard (1/4") and two microphone (1/4"/XLR). Remember that both the XLR and ¼" cannot be used
simultaneously.
To connect MICROPHONES via ¼" mic cables, connect the XLR-end of the cable into the MICROPHONE until it locks into place and connect the ¼"
plug into either of the MIC 1 or 2 jacks on the GIG MAN.
To connect MICROPHONES via XLR mic cables, connect the XLR-F end of the cable into the MICROPHONE until it locks into place and connect the
XLR-M end into either of the BALANCED MIC 1 or 2 jacks on the GIG MAN's rear panel.
To connect a GUITAR, connect a ¼" instrument cable from the GUITAR's ¼" output to the GIG MAN's ¼" GUITAR input.
To connect a KEYBOARD, connect a ¼" instrument cable from the KEYBOARD's ¼" output to the GIG MAN's ¼" KEYBOARD input.

AC Device Connections
The GIG MAN has an AC power outlet on the rear panel to provide power to a connecting device. Please note that a device with a power
consumption rating over 200W should not be connected as that exceeds the allowable power feed. Doing so may cause serious damage to
both devices and may void your warranty.
13
Speaker Connection
The GIG MAN has a set of speaker connectors for connection to external speakers. Remember that only speakers with an impedance rating of 8 ohms
should be connected.
To connect speakers, first unlock the plastic fasteners on each speaker connector by pushing downward on them. Then strip approximately a 1 /2 " of
insulation from the speaker wire ends and twist the strands so that they can easily slide through the holes. Once a wire is inserted, lock them in place
with the fasteners by pushing upward on them. It is easy to over-insert a wire into a speaker connector so that the insulation is inserted as well. To
ensure this doesn't happen, only insert the wires to the point where you can still see the edge of the insulation.

MP3 Functions and Operations
The GIG MAN can play back MP3's files recorded to CD-ROM, CD-R or CD-RW discs.
Notes on MP3 Discs
An MP3 file stores audio data that has been compressed using the MPEG1 encoding scheme. Although PC terminology uses "files" and "folders"
regarding MP3s and storage, in this manual we refer to them as "tracks and albums".
Notes on Playing MP3s
An MP3 track must be recorded on a disc in the format compliant with ISO9660. Track order may differ from MP3 player to MP3 player.
The maximum allowable number of tracks and/or albums located on a disc is 900, including the root albums (directory).
The maximum allowable depth of a nested folder is 127, including files.
If a disc contains both audio as well as MP3 tracks, it will not play in the GIG MAN.
Multi-session discs are limited to a total of 20 sessions.
MP3 playback is optimal with MP3s encoded with a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz and a fixed bit rate of 128 Kbps.
The unit may not play MP3 tracks recorded using a packet writing utility.
The unit can only play back MP3 tracks having a file extension of ".mp3".
It may take 30 seconds or more before the unit can start playback of MP3's. This time depends on the number of recorded tracks and the
complexity of the album tree.
If you play a non-MP3 track that has the ".mp3" file extension, the unit will skip to the next valid track automatically.
Digital recordings with this unit cannot be done while playing back MP3 discs.
15
MP3 Functions and Operations cont...
Notes on display indications during playback
Up to 8 characters are displayed for the name of an album or track.
Characters other than uppercase letters ("A" to "Z"), numerals ("0" to "9") and underscore ("_") may not be displayed, or may be displayed in
different characters.
The elapsed playing time may not be displayed correctly for MP3 tracks.
Depending on the condition of the recording equipment or the CD-R/RW disc itself, a false album or track which cannot by played on the unit may
be displayed on a TV screen.
Notes on creating MP3 discs
When converting audio data to MP3, create MP3 files with a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz and a fixed bit rate of 128 Kbps.
When creating MP3 discs, do not store more than 900 albums and/or tracks in a disc.
To play tracks in the order they were recorded, ensure your encoding software is set up to auto arrange by name, or use only one album (if they are
already alphabetized) or place a three digit number in front of each track to set an order manually.
R ecommended = 001-S ong.mp3, 002-S ong.mp3, 003-S ong.mp3…
Not R ecommended = 1-S ong.mp3, 5-S ong.mp3, 10-S ong.mp3…
MP3 Glossary
File Extension - A 3-character string added to a file name under the Windows or DOS environment is called a "file extension". A file extension is used
mainly to identify types of files. The file extension for MP3 files is ".mp3".
ISO 9660 - ISO stands for the "International Organization for Standardization". ISO 9660 determines the file structure for CD-ROMs. This unit can play
MP3 files recorded in the format compliant with ISO 9660.
Nesting of folders (albums) - To organize all your data files stored in a PC, you can store related files in a folder. A folder can contain other folders as
well as files. For example, FOLDER A can contain FOLDER B (as well as files) and FOLDER B can contain FOLDER C (as well as other files).
Session - A session is one uninterrupted section of written data on a disc. A multi-session disc is a disc that has more than two sessions.
MP3 Playback
To load an MP3 disc:
The disc will automatically load and display the MP3 window. It may take up to 20 seconds for an MP3 disc to be read
depending on the complexity of the file structure.
To start playback of a disc:
Select the MP3 title that you want to begin playback with. If you have folders on the disc, you may need to navigate through them to find the desired
MP3 title.
Press PLAY.
You can cancel a program by pressing the STOP button twice or turning the unit on or off.
This function does not work unless you turn PBC on.

Karaoke Functions and Operations
Notes on Karaoke Media
There are various types of Karaoke media available for playback with the GIG MAN. You can perform Karaoke with MP3, CDG and VCD formats. The
thing to remember is how each type differs as far as audio channels and video support.
CDG
CDG has been the most commonly used format of Karaoke media for the last 7 years. It is very similar to a standard CD, except it has video graphics
that are decoded by your Karaoke player and displayed onscreen. In addition, many CDG's are specially 'multiplex' formatted with background music
on the left channel and vocals on the right channel, so vocal cancellation can be done by simply adjusting the balance control.
VCD
While the VCD format is not as popular in North America as it is in other countries, it remains an excellent format to be used for Karaoke. Because
video is not limited to 16 colors (as with CDG), VCD's tend to have motion video behind the lyrics instead of a monotone screen, making them a bit
more attractive to party atmospheres. Most VCD's also have multiplexed coded audio for easy vocal cancellation.
Adjusting the Echo Level
Digital echo provides a very spacious feeling to the vocals. You can adjust the ECHO effect to sound several ways.
1.
2.
3.
First off, you can adjust the overall ECHO applied to the Mic channels via the ECHO VOLUME control. This limits the echo to all three channels
together.
After the ECHO level is set, you can start customizing the nature of the echo effect via the REPEAT and DELAY controls. The REPEAT control
adjusts the number of times the echo will repeat prior to fading out. The DELAY control adjusts the interval time between each echo. For example,
a minimal REPEAT and maximum DELAY configuration would result in one echo repetition that occurred seconds after the source sound. A
maximum REPEAT and minimum DELAY configuration would result in several echo repetitions occurring extremely close together, at times
sounding slightly overlapped.
Start some background music and finalize the settings to achieve the "perfect" echo effect.
Using Digital Control
Digital Key Controllers are designed to transpose the natural key of source music up or down, so that singers can perform songs that are normally out
of their vocal range. You can use the Digital Key Controller to obtain the desired musical key within 1.5 octaves up or down from the original key.
1. To step up, press the left button marked "b".
2. To step down, press the right button marked "#".
3. To revert back to the original key, press the RESET button.
