Listening for a Lifetime
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit youʼve just purchased is only the start of your
musical enjoyment. Now itʼs time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your
equipment offers. VocoPro and the Electronic Industries Associationʼs Consumer Electronics
Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets
the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to a higher volume of
sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard
against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without
distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
• Pay attention to the different levels in various recordings.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all,
we want you listening for a lifetime.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since
hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and
the Electronic Industries Associationʼs Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid
prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.
Some common decibel ranges:
Level
30
40
50
60
70
80
Example
Quiet library, Soft whispers
Living room, Refrigerator, Bedroom away from traffic
Light traffic, Normal Conversation
Air Conditioner at 20 ft., Sewing machine
Vacuum cleaner, Hair dryer, Noisy Restaurant
Average city traffic, Garbage disposals, Alarm clock at 2 ft.
The following noises can be dangerous under constant exposure:
Level
90
100
120
140
180
Example
Subway, Motorcycle, Truck traffic, Lawn Mower
Garbage truck, Chainsaw, Pneumatics drill

Getting Connected
DIGITAL CONNECTION SET-UP:
To get set up with the digital connections, please perform the following steps:
1. Identify the HDMI output located on the music source.
• Potential HD music sources:
− Laptop
− Chromecast
− Karaoke Player
− DVD Player
− Any component with an HDMI out
2. Identify an available HDMI input located on the output device (such as a TV, or amplifier)
3. Connect an HDMI cable from the output of the music source to the HD IN located on the
back of the HD-Oke.
4. Connect an additional HDMI cable from the HD OUT on the back of the HD-Oke into the
available HDMI Input located on the output device (TV, or amplifier).
- The HD-Oke utilizes an Analog-to-Digital coverter to output the analog microphone audio
over the digital HDMI signal, as such there will be a small delay (less than .05 seconds)
in the microphone audio. The audio delay is determined by the processing power of the
output device; using an audio receiver will reduce the delay the a minimum, using a TV will
produce a slightly longer delay.

• There must be a music source connected in order for microphone audio to be heard.
5.HD OUT – This accepts an HDMI cable to send the audio and video from the HD-Oke to a TV or
digital amplifier.
• There will be no microphone audio present in HD Out signal if there is no HD In connected.
11
Operations
The HD-Oke is designed for easy to use karaoke fun. Once the system is connected via the analog
or digital connection, the music and microphone audio will be heard through the speakers of the
output device.
The selection and playback of music is controlled by the music source and the HD-Oke would
control microphone volume and the Echo effect level applied.
• Reading the Display:
- The HD-Oke has 5 LEDs that show the microphone Echo effect level and the microphone volume
levels. The number of LEDs displayed corresponds to the level of the setting being altered.
• Using the Microphones:
- The HD-Oke can accommodate up to two (2) wired microphones. Any microphone that uses an
unbalanced ¼” cable would be compatible. The microphones would be plugged into the Mic 1 and
Mic 2 input jacks.
• Using the Echo Effects:
There are 5 levels of Echo effect available. The LED display would show the current Echo level
when pressed.

1. Echo Level 1 would have a single LED showing
2. Echo Level 2 will show two LEDs
3. Echo Level 3 will show three LEDs
4. Echo Level 4 will show four LEDs
5. Echo Level 5 will show five LEDs
• Using the Vocal Eliminator:
The Vocal Eliminator function is toggled with the button located on the front of the HD-Oke. This
feature will attempt to remove the main vocals from regular audio tracks. It does this by blocking
the “Phantom Center”. If the vocals of a track are primarily in the left or right fields, the vocals will
still be heard. See Commonly Asked Questions for more info.
12
Commonly Asked Questions
1. Why is there a delay in the microphone audio?
• The Analog-to-Digital converter the microphone utilizes requires a small amount of time to
process. The audio processing power of the output devices ultimately determines the length of
the delay.
• Using an HDMI enabled audio receiver will minimize the delay the most (<.05 seconds).
• Using an HDMI enabled TV will result in a noticeable delay (>0.5 seconds).
2. Why is there no microphone?
• The HDMI In/Out are likely not connected. There will be no microphone audio if there is no
HDMI In connection made.
• The microphone volume is turned down.
• Double-check the remaining connections.
• Double-check the microphone status.
3. What can I use as a music source?
• For the digital connection, the intended sources of music are: DVD/Karaoke Players, Laptop/
Computers, internet streaming devices, or any device with an HDMI Output
• For the analog connection, the intended sources of music are: MP3 player, smartphones,
tablets, mixer, or any device with an analog L/R output.
4. What is the Vocal Eliminator?
• This is an audio mode that will attempt to remove the main vocal track of any audio played
through the HD-Oke.
• It works by blocking the “phantom center” of a stereo audio signal. If the vocals of a track are
primarily in the left or right fields, the vocals will still be heard.
• The “phantom center” is a phenomenon that occurs when audio of equal volume enters both
ears simultaneously to give the impression the sound is emanating from directly in front of the
listener.
5. I’m missing some parts from my box. What can I do?
• Please contact VocoPro regarding any missing or defective parts at 800-678-5348.
