Quick Start - Recordcase.de
Quick Start We recommend that you read through all sections of this User Guide before starting. However, we
provide these notes so that you can plug up and experiment with sounds from your XONE:62
immediately if you prefer to read the full guide later. Please note that you should first read and
understand the Important Safety Instructions printed at the beginning of this guide. The following
simple procedure requires a CD player and headphones. Alternatively you can connect a pair of
turntables and start mixing right away. Please read the rest of this guide before connecting to your
amplifier and speaker systems.
1
Set all controls to their starting condition. Set all
FADERS, GAIN, AUX, VCF, RESONANCE, HEADPHONES
and BOOTH MONITOR controls minimum. Set PAN and EQ
controls to their detented centre position. Set all switches to
their up position.
2 Plug in a CD player. This provides a good stereo audio
source as a starting point. Plug into CH3 line input as shown.
Do not use the phono input for CD or other line level sources as
this is intended for turntables with magnetic cartridges requiring
RIAA equalisation.
3
Plug in the headphones.
Plug into the top panel
PHONES socket. Use the best headphones you can afford for
your application. We recommend the professional grade
closed-ear type of 30 to 100ohms impedance, and with ¼” TRS
jack plug. Avoid using the popular mini jack to ¼” adapters as
these can quickly prove unreliable.

4 Connect AC mains power. Check first that the correct
mains lead with sealed plug suitable for your local supply has
been provided with your console. Plug into the AC MAINS IN
socket making sure the connector is pressed fully in.
5 Switch the console on. Press the rear panel ON/OFF
switch. Check that the green and red XY leds above the
crossfader both light. You may notice that the console meters
flash briefly. This is normal during power up.
6 Select the line source. Press the CH3 source select
switch. This lights red to indicate that the line source is
selected.
7 Adjust the channel gain. Start the CD player. Adjust
CH3 GAIN control until the average music level lights the
channel meter green 0 led with loudest peaks lighting the yellow
+6 led. If no signal is present check that the music source is
playing and the correct input is selected.
. Reduce GAIN if the red PK Led lights. This indicator
is a warning that the signal is approaching clipping and
that distortion may result if the level increases further.

8 Check the sound using the Cue system. With the music
playing press the large CUE switch. The switch lights as well
as the master CUE led to show that the cue monitor is active.
The channel signal is now sent to the headphones. Slowly turn
up the headphones level control until you hear the music.
Avoid listening to loud headphones levels for long
periods as this may damage your hearing.
The channel signal is now displayed on the main monitor
meters giving you finer control in setting the gain. Note that the
cue system lets you monitor the channel signals pre-fader. In
other words you can check or cue any source before you raise
its fader to bring it into the mix.
9 Route the signal to the main Mix output. Release the
CUE switch. The CUE led turns off and the headphones and
monitor meters go quiet. Raise CH3 fader to its top ‘0’ position.
Raise the MIX master rotary control to maximum. With the
XFADE ON switch in its up position the signal is routed direct to
the mix. The signal is now displayed on the main meters at the
same level as the channel meter. The level is now the same
throughout the console signal path, as set by the channel gain
control. This is the ideal setting with meters averaging 0dB so
giving the best signal-to-noise performance while maintaining
plenty of headroom to avoid clipping.
10 Listen to the main MIX output. The music should be
heard in the headphones. If not, then check that the AUX
switch is released and that no CUE switches are selected.
11 Check the effect of the Stereo EQ. Press CH3 EQ ON
switch. This lights to show that the signal is routed through the
equaliser. Now try the effect of each of the 4 frequency bands.
The EQ is designed for creative live performance control and
provides a safe +6dB boost and a massive –26dB cut.
Experiment with cutting rather than boosting frequencies to
create dramatic effects. These can be punched in or out using
the EQ ON switch.
12 Route through the Crossfader. Press XFADE ON to
route the signal through the crossfader rather than direct to the
mix. The green X led lights indicating that the channel is
assigned to the left (X) side of the crossfader. Press the XY
switch to assign the signal to the right (Y) side. The yellow Y
led lights. Note the green X and yellow Y led above the
crossfader to help you see where the channels are routed.
13
Using the Crossfader.
This lets you fade between
signals routed to either side, typically to fade smoothly into a
new music track or to creatively layer sounds when scratch or
cut mixing. Experiment further by connecting two CD decks or
turntables and assigning one to X, the other to Y. Use XFADE
PAN to adjust the balance between the left and right mix, either
to correct an imbalance or as an effect in its own right.
XONE:62 User Guide
14 Changing the crossfader curve. The little switch to the
left of the crossfader sets which curve is active. This is
underpanel so that it is not accidentally changed during
performance. Use a pen tip or similar pointed object to change
the setting. In the normal up position the signal dips by 6dB at
the middle position for smooth fading between tracks. Press
the switch for a dipless response where the signal starts to dip
only once the fader has passed the mid position. This is better
suited to scratch or cut mixing where you layer the sounds.
15 Crossfader mixing. At this point you may wish to plug
in a pair of turntables and experiment with DJ mixing. Plug into
CH3 and CH4 phono inputs if your turntables require RIAA
equalisation. If not, plug into the line inputs. Remember to
connect the turntable earth leads to the console chassis earth
terminal. Use CUE to set up the channel gain as you did in
step 7. Route CH3 to X and CH4 to Y of the crossfader.
16 Adding VCF filter effects. Each side of the crossfader
features a stereo Voltage Controlled Filter which presents the
DJ with a unique set of live performance tools to create subtle
or startling tonal effects. With the signal assigned to the Y side
of the crossfader, and the crossfader moved fully to the right,
the music is routed to the mix and should be heard on the
headphones. Press the Y FILTER switch to route the signal
through the analogue filter section. The blue led lights to show
that the filter is active. Check that the large LPF switch is
illuminated indicating that the power up default lo-pass filter
type is active. The sound should change to a rumbling bass
line with higher frequencies removed.
17
Sweep the filter frequency.
Turn the VCF control
clockwise and you should progressively hear higher audio
frequencies returning to the mix. This control sweeps the effect
from low to high frequency.
18
Adjust the filter resonance.
Slowly turn the
RESONANCE control clockwise as you sweep the frequency
and you should hear the ‘Q’ or ‘sharpness’ of the effect
changing from subtle to drastic as the roll-off knee sharpens
and frequency boost is added.
Increasing resonance boosts a narrow band of
selected frequencies. Make sure you reduce the channel
gain if the red peak meters start to flash.
19 Change the filter type. Press one or any combination of
the large HPF, BPF and LPF filter type switches to experiment
with different performance effects. For example pressing HPF
and LPF together produces a notch effect. Once you are
familiar with the creative power of these filters you can apply
them to your performance. More information is available later.
