PARTS DESCRIPTION
PAN CONTROLS (8)
Each channel has a pan control which controls the level of stereo
signal goingto each speaker (left and right). Turning the level
control towards (R) will increase the signal in the right speaker and
reduce the level in the left speaker. Turning the level control
towards (L) will increase the signal in the left speaker and reduce
the level in the right speaker.
VOLUME (9)
Increases the overall signal level of the channel. This is different to
GAIN in that GAIN attenuates the raw signal, where as the VOLUME
control attenuates the signal after EQ and effect has been applied.
MASTER CONTROLS
STEREO AUX RETURNS (1)
Connect external effects processors via this jack. If
the effects processor has a stereo out put connect to both L and R
jacks. If the output of the effects processor is mono then connect
to this the L jack. This signal is sent to the stereo bus
AUX SEND jack (2)
This jacks enable the signal of an external device to be added to
the MAIN output.
This input jack is used when the input of an external effect is
connected and the signal is adjusted by the effect control and the
level adjusted by the effect out control
MON OUT (3): This jack enables an additional powered monitor
speaker to be set up. (N.B: an un -powered speaker will not work if
connected to this jack. If you have un powered speakers a power amp
must be used).
MAIN OUT (4): These outputs are the main output points of the mixer.
If using powered enclosures connect them directly to these inputs,
other wise connect using a power amp.
CD IN (5):
These RCA inputs are used to connect a stereo device
(such as cassette player or CD player).
RECORD OUT (6): These RCA outputs are used to send the signal to an
external stereo device (such as cassette recorder, MD recorder) to
enable recording.
ROOM / PHONES (7): This jack enables an additional powered monitor
speaker to be set up. (N.B: an un -powered speaker will not work if
connected to this jack). Or it enables connection of a headphone
to monitor the mix.
