FCC INFORMATION (U.S.A.)
1. IMPORTANT NOTICE: DO NOT MODIFY THIS
UNIT!: This product, when installed as indicated in the
instructions contained in this manual, meets FCC
requirements. Modifications not expressly approved by
Vocopro may void your authority, granted by the FCC,
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.
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:
Relocate either this product or the device that is being
affected by the interference.
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.
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.
4. Never open the cabinet. If a foreign object drops into the
set, contact your dealer.
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.
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.
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.
CAUTION
The apparatus is not disconnected from the AC power
source so long as it is connected to the wall outlet,
even if the apparatus itself is turned off. To fully insure
that the apparatus is indeed fully void if residual power,
leave unit disconnected from the AC outlet for at least
fifteen seconds.

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
Example
30
40

Getting Connected
Speaker Connection
The GIG STAR 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:
1. Unlock the plastic fasteners on each speaker connector by pushing downward on them.
2. Strip approximately a 1 /2” (1.27cm) of insulation from the speaker wire ends and twist the strands so that they
can easily slide through the holes.
3. Once a wire is inserted, lock them in place with the fasteners by pushing upward on them.
NOTE: 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 STAR 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 STAR.
• 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.
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.
Recommended = 001-Song.mp3, 002-Song.mp3, 003-Song.mp3…
Not Recommended = 1-Song.mp3, 5-Song.mp3, 10-Song.mp3…

Mp3 Functions and Operations cont.
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 STAR. You can perform Karaoke with
Mp3, CD+G and VCD formats. The thing to remember is how each type differs as far as audio channels and video support.
CD+G
CD+G 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 CD+G’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 CD+G), 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. 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.
2. 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.
3. Start some background music and finalize the settings to achieve the “perfect” echo effect.
Using Digital Key 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 six steps 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 “ ” button.

Viewing CDs
Viewing VCD’s
There are two types of VCD’s:
VCD 1/1.1 Format
This format of VCD has no menu, track search and other video features available, as this format does not support PBC. The same as with audio
CD’s, these discs will auto-play with full motion-picture audio and video, but with no support for menus and custom track selection.
VCD 2.0 Format
2.0 formatted VCD’s are equipped with PBC support. PBC (playback control) allows for user-interaction with system menus, search functions
and other video-based operations. Moreover, high-resolution still pictures (JPG/JPEG) can be displayed if they are embedded in a VCD track/
scene.

Troubleshooting
The input selector is not set to the channel
that the active source player is connected
to.
Check the source player input channel and
ensure the input selector is set to that channel.
The speaker selector is not set correctly.
If external speakers are connected, set the
speaker selector to EXT. If no external
speakers are connected, select INT.
Faulty connection within external
components or external component failure.
Check overall cabling and viability of external
equipment.
The power cord to the GIG STAR is not
plugged in.
Plug the power cord from the GIG STAR to a
wall outlet.
Unable to connect the GIG STAR to
my television monitor with the RCA
cable provided
Your TV does not have RCA style A/V input
jacks.
Use an external RF Modulator.
There is a loud "squealing" noise
coming from the speakers.
An open microphone or guitar is too close to
the output speakers.
Increase space between microphone and
speakers.
Microphone or guitar volume is too high.
Turn down microphone or guitar volume.
Excessive treble is applied.
Lower the treble levels.
An MP3 or Photo-CD does not play in
the GIG STAR.

Try other MP3/JPEG encoding software or disc
writing software for writing the discs.
The radio is not getting any signal or
the sound is very unclear.
The antennas are not plugged in or they are
postitioned in a way that blocks the radio
frequency.
