IMPORTANT WARNINGS & SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1. Read these instructions
2. Follow all instructions
3. Keep these instructions
4. Heed all warnings
5. Do not use this apparatus near water
6. Clean only with dry cloth.
7. Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions.
8. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other
apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
9. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarised or grounding plug. A polarised plug has two
blades with one wider than the other. A grounding plug has two blades and a third grounding
prong. The wide blade or the third prong is provided for your safety. If the provided plug does
not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.
10. Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at the plugs, convenience
receptacles, and at the point where they exit from the apparatus.
11. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
12. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold with
the apparatus. When a cart or rack is used, use caution when moving the cart and apparatus
combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
13. Unplug the apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time.
14. Refer all servicing to qualified personnel. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been
damaged in any way including but not limited to power supply cord or plug damage, liquid
ingress, foreign objects in the chassis, exposure to rain/moisture or impact damage. In addition
the unit must be serviced when you experience any abnormal operation.
15. CAUTION: These servicing instructions are for use by qualified service personnel only. To
reduce the risk of electric shock, do not attempt to perform any servicing other than that
contained in the operating instructions unless you are qualified to do so. In addition opening the
casing will result in your warranty becoming null and void.
16. Do not install this apparatus in a confined space such as a book case or similar unit. Good
ventilation should be maintained around the apparatus and any vents, air-inlets or fans should
not be obstructed by objects such as paper, table-cloths, curtains etc.
17. WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose the apparatus to rain or
moisture. The apparatus should not be exposed to dripping or splashing and objects filled with
liquids, such as vases, should not be placed on the apparatus.
18. WARNING: The mains plug/appliance coupler is used as a disconnect device, the disconnect
device shall remain readily operable.

OPERATING MANUAL AND USER GUIDE
USB INTERFACE
The USB connector enables computers with USB connectivity to interface directly with the SL
Series mixer for full duplex recording and playback. In recent years the introduction of USB
connectivity has ushered a new appreciation of the capabilities of computer audio, helping to fuse
both digital and analogue and open up endless possibilities for the recording musician.
The internal AD (Analogue to Digital) and DA (Digital to Analogue) converters are 16-bit/48KHz
enabling recording and playback above CD quality, ensuring that recordings that you make with an
SL Series Mixer have outstanding quality.
The SL Series are fully class compliant and requires no drivers when used with modern operating
systems. Mac OSX, Windows XP, Vista and 7 will require no additional driver software.
Windows XP Installation
Simply choose the device in the following location: Start/Settings/Control Panel/Sounds and Audio
Devices/Audio
Mac OSX Installation
Simply select as an input and output device using the "Audio MIDI Setup" page, you can find this
easily using the spotlight function.
