If mounting to a tripod, use the tripod socket on the bottom of the mixer. 5. Connect the supplied cables from the AUDIO OUT 1 jack on the mixer to the AUDIO IN 1 jack on the camera and from the AUDIO OUT 2 jack on the mixer to the AUDIO IN 2 on the camera. 5. Connect your audio device to the LEFT and RIGHT XLR inputs on the mixer. 6.

Set the LINE/MIC/PH switch. When using microphones and wireless systems, set to MIC for microphone. When using other audio devices, set to LINE for Line. When using microphones operating on phantom power, set to PH for phantom power. DO NOT select phantom level when recording with microphones that do not operate on phantom power, wireless receivers, mixing boards or any unbalanced devices, because it may cause damage to both the adapter and audio device. SESCOM SES-DSLR-BMCC-MIX1 Page 5 SES-DSLR-BMCC-MIX1 Set Up 8. Set the M/S Switch - When using one channel, switch to M for mono. - When using two channels, switch to S for stereo. 9. In case of distortion, turn down the LEFT and RIGHT level controls, and when recording, adjust the knobs for optimum signal levels. 10. Turn the Power Switch to ON. 11. Set the PHANTOM Switch to 12V or 48V if any channel requires phantom power. 12. Turn on/off the L and R LED indicator switch for each channel. The LED will flash red for overload. 13. Adjust the LEFT and RIGHT level controls to get an average reading of between –12dB and 0dB on the Level Meter. 14. Plug headphones into the headphone terminal on the camera to monitor the audio. Make sure that both channels can be heard. Adjust the trim controls to a comfortable level. When using one input, set the unused channel trim control fully clockwise to isolate it from the working channel. SESCOM SES-DSLR-BMCC-MIX1 Page 6 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS 1.
