INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the C3FX professional 19” mixer with built-in effects. In addition to its impressive input options –
including five microphone, five line, and three phono inputs – the C3FX features balanced Master XLR
outputs and Master / Zone / Record RCA outputs for connecting the mixer to a wide array of speaker systems
and audio recorders. This mixer also offers a variety of built-in effects including multiple kinds of reverb,
flanger, echo, chorus-reverb, and even a vocal cancel, allowing you to remove the lead vocals from almost
any song. Plus, the industrial-grade 19” 4RU rack-mountable design ensures that the C3FX can be easily
incorporated into any existing mobile or club DJ setup.
We hope that the C3FX serves you well for many years to come.
Sincerely,
The People of Numark

AC IN – Use the included power adapter to connect the mixer to a power outlet. While the power is
switched off, plug the power supply into the mixer first, then plug the power supply into a power outlet.
Note: The mixer is designed to work with the included power supply only. Using an incompatible
power supply could result in damage to the unit.
VOLTAGE SELECTOR – This 2-position switch sets the AC input voltage for the speaker. U.S. users
should set this switch to “100-120V” whereas U.K. and most European users will need to set this to
“220-240V”.
POWER SWITCH – Turns the mixer on and off. Turn on the mixer after all input devices have been
connected and before you turn on amplifiers. Turn off amplifiers before you turn off the mixer.
PHONO INPUTS (RCA) – Connect phono-level devices, such as turntables, to these inputs.
GROUNDING TERMINAL – If you are using phono-level turntables with a grounding wire, connect the
grounding wire to these terminals. If you experience a low “hum” or “buzz”, this could mean that your
turntables are not grounded.
Note: Some turntables have a grounding wire built into the RCA connection and, therefore, nothing
needs to be connected to the grounding terminal.
LINE INPUTS (RCA) – Connect line-level devices, such as CD players, samplers or audio interfaces,
to these inputs.
MIC INPUTS – Connect ¼” microphones to this input. The microphone controls are located on the top
panel.
FADER START CONNECTOR – If you would like to use the mixer’s fader-start to automatically start
and cue music from external devices via the crossfader, connect these outputs to your fader-start
compatible device. You can use standard 1/8” stereo cables to make these connections.
ZONE OUTPUT (RCA) – Connect this output to an external monitoring device, such as a PA system,
powered monitors, or a home stereo. The level of this output with the ZONE knob on the top panel.
RECORD OUTPUT (RCA) – Use standard RCA cables to connect this output to a recording device,
such as a CD recorder or tape deck. The level of this output is based upon pre-master levels.
MASTER OUTPUT (RCA) – Use standard RCA cables to connect this output to a speaker or amplifier
system. The level of this output is controlled by the MASTER knob on the top panel.
MASTER OUTPUT (BALANCED) – Use XLR or balanced ¼” (TRS)

cables are balanced?
system. The level of this output is controlled by the Master knob on
the top panel.
Tip: When possible, we recommend using these balanced outputs
for your Master audio output. Balanced outputs are better suited for
long cable runs and are less susceptible to noise and interference.

MIC INPUT – Connect a microphone to this input with an XLR or ¼” cable.
MIC TREBLE – Adjusts the high (treble) frequencies of the microphone channel.
Tip: If you experience feedback when using a microphone at loud levels, try turning down the high
frequencies.
MIC BASS – Adjusts the low (bass) frequencies of the microphone channel.
MIC GAIN – Adjusts the audio level of the microphone signal.
MIC ON/OFF – Turns the microphone input on or off.
CHANNEL GAIN – Adjusts the corresponding channel’s pre-fader and pre-EQ gain level.
CHANNEL TREBLE – Adjusts the high (treble) frequencies of the audio on the corresponding channel.
CHANNEL MID – Adjusts the mid-range frequencies of the audio on the corresponding channel.
CHANNEL BASS – Adjusts the low (bass) frequencies of the audio on the corresponding channel.
INPUT SELECTOR – Selects the input source to be routed to the corresponding channel. Input jacks
are located on the rear panel.
PFL –Sends pre-fader, pre-EQ audio of the corresponding channel to the Cue channel for headphone
monitoring.
CHANNEL FADER – Adjusts the audio level on the corresponding channel.
CROSSFADER – Blends audio between the channels assigned to the left and right side of the
crossfader (see #14).
Note: The crossfader is user-replaceable if it should ever wear out. Simply remove the facepanel, then
remove the screws holding it in position. Replace the fader with a quality authorized replacement from
your local Numark retailer only.
CROSSFADER ASSIGN – Selects which input channel will be heard when the crossfader is moved
towards this knob. All channels not assigned will remain active.
FADER START – Enables or disables “fader start” on the corresponding side of the crossfader. When
fader start is enabled on one side, moving the crossfader toward that side will cause any fader startcompatible device (connected to the FADER START output on the rear panel) to start playing.
CUE BLEND – Slide this to mix the Cue channel and Program mix in the headphones. When all the
way to the left, only channels routed to the Cue channel will be heard. When all the way right, only the
Program mix will be heard.
CUE GAIN – Adjusts the audio level of the Cue channel.
HEADPHONES – Connect your ¼” headphones to this output for cueing and mix monitoring.
BLEND / SPLIT – When pressed, this button sends all audio in the Cue channel to the left side of the
headphones and the Program mix to the right side of the headphones. When raised, you may control
the balance of the Cue channel and Program mix with the Cue Blend fader (see #16).
STEREO / MONO – Adjusts the Program mix for stereo or mono operation.
METER ASSIGN – Determines whether audio from the Program mix or the Cue channel is sent to the
stereo LED meter (see #22).
STEREO LEVEL INDICATOR – Monitors the audio level of the Master output or Cue Channel,
depending on the position of the METER ASSIGN button (see #21).

MASTER FADER – This control adjusts the output volume of the Program mix.
BALANCE – Adjusts the balance of right to left audio in all outputs (MASTER, RECORD, and ZONE
OUTPUTS).
ZONE – Controls the audio level of the Record / Zone outputs.
Tip: The Record / Zone outputs can be used to supply line-level audio to a lighting controller or soundactivated lighting system.
POWER LED – Illuminates when the mixer is on.
EFFECTS ON/OFF – Turns effects processing on and off. Note that you will also have to increase the
BLEND (see #29) to be able to hear the effects once they have been turned on.
EFFECTS ASSIGN – Press these buttons to select the channel(s) to which effects are added.
EFFECTS BLEND – Adjusts the amount of effect added to the selected channel(s) (see #28). Turning
the knob towards “DRY” reduces the amount of effect. Turning it towards “WET” increases the amount
of effect.
EFFECTS SELECTOR – Turn this knob to choose what type of effect is added to the selected
channels (see #28).
EFFECTS DESCRIPTIONS
The C3FX features a comprehensive, easy-to-use multi-effects processor. We encourage you to spend
some time becoming familiar with the operation and sound of each effect before you begin using them out at
a performance. Although effects can add a level of interest and surprise to musical material, it is often easy
to overdo it. Learn how to judiciously apply effects to your music and remember that sometimes your crowd
just wants to hear the song.
ƒ
HALL REVERB (1, 2) – Simulates reverberation in a large concert hall.
ƒ
ROOMS REVERB (1, 2, 3) – Simulates reverberation in a medium-sized studio room.
ƒ
PLATE REVERB (1, 2, 3) – Simulates reverberation off a classic echo plate (a 4’ x 8’ suspended sheet
of metal with transducers at either end to produce reverb).
ƒ
STEREO – Simulates a stereo effect.
ƒ
FLANGER – Sweeping flanger effect. (This is similar to the chorus effect except the flanger modulates
the delayed signal over a shorter period – around 0-12ms.)
ƒ
ECHO (1, 2) – Adds a traditional delay or echo effect.
ƒ
CHORUS-REVERB – Produces layers of true stereo chorus and room reverb.
ƒ
AUTO WAH – Adds a “wah-wah” effect similar to a guitar “wah” pedal.
ƒ
VOCAL CANCEL – Reduces the vocals from stereo audio.
Note: This effect does not work on all recordings, such as mono recordings or compressed MP3 files.
Also, it will not work properly when the mixer is in MONO mode (see #20 under TOP PANEL
FEATURES).
ƒ
AUTO PAN – Simulates the sound of a rotating speaker.
