4 AUTOMATIC MIXER button

Turns on and off the AUTOMATIC MIXER.

The AUTOMATIC MIXER button lights in green when the

AUTOMATIC MIXER button is pressed ON.

When it is pressed ON, the compressor of the INPUT screen is set at the same time.

The AUTOMATIC MIXER contains two functions, the compressor function and the gate function.

If the total output sound volume exceeds a certain level such as when many people talk loudly or at the same time, the compressor function limits the output sound volume so that it does not exceed the upper-specified level. (See part 1 in the figure.)

If the microphone input sound falls below a lower-specified level, the gate function cuts off the microphone sound so that the background noise is reduced, howling is prevented, and clear sound quality is maintained. When larger than a certain volume is input again, the microphone input is turned on without delay. (See part 2 in the figure.)

Conventional automatic mixers have an inherent lack of sound at the beginning of a speech due to the time difference after the audio input level is detected until the gate starts working.

The SRP-X700P solves this problem by removing the time difference by using digital signal processing.

You can operate the qg OUTPUT fader by dragging the fader portion. In the ACTIVE mode, the sound volume is determined by the qg OUTPUT fader; the SRP-X700P fader, the MASTER volume control and the remote control via the

REMOTE terminal have no effect.

INACTIVE mode:

The output sound volume is indicated by the yellow marker on the side of the fader. The SRP-X700P fader, the MASTER volume control and the remote control via the REMOTE terminal determine the output sound volume.

The qg OUTPUT fader has no effect on the output sound volume.

Note

• A sudden large sound may occur when you switch to

ACTIVE mode while the sound volume is reduced by either the fader, MASTER volume or from the REMOTE terminal.

Before switching the mode, stop the connected equipments and check the direction of the microphones.

• The mode of the INPUT fader and the mode of the OUTPUT fader are interlocked and so are switched together.
