When phantom power is not needed, set the +48V button to the off position.
Observe the following when using phantom power to prevent damage to the console or connected devices, and signal noise.
• Do not set the +48V button to the on position when the device connected to the input jack does not require phantom power.
• Do not connect or disconnect cables when the +48V button is set to the on position.
• Before turning phantom power on or off for a channel, first set the channel's volume to the minimum level.

When using phantom power, noise may be generated if there is a difference in the impedance between the hot and cold of the device connected
to an input jack.

the Intensity type for 1-knob EQ mode.
<1-knob EQ mode>
<Manual mode>
If you double-click an area of the graph where there is no parameter, a keyboard is displayed. This is useful for understanding the
relationship between sound range and frequency.
How does 1-knob EQ mode work?
1-knob EQ mode allows you to adjust several parameters at once with just one operation. It makes EQ adjustment quick and easy.
The console contains Presets that are configured for a variety of instruments. You can use 1-knob EQ mode to adjust the EQ
settings that are saved in Presets without disturbing the overall balance of your mix.
You can even configure EQ settings using manual mode, then switch to 1-knob EQ mode and use the Intensity type to adjust the
amount of EQ applied to the channel. In this case you can adjust from 0% (no EQ applied) to 50% (the EQ settings you made using
manual mode) and 100% (increased intensity of the EQ settings you made using manual mode). This makes it very easy to finetune your EQ settings with just one operation.
If 1-knob EQ mode type is set to Vocal or Loudness, you can adjust the EQ between 0% (no EQ applied) and 100% (maximum EQ
applied).
Setting LPF
The SUB channel can use the LPF to cut high frequencies independent of the EQ, ideal for adjusting the signal sent to a sub-woofer.

How does 1-knob COMP mode work?
1-knob COMP mode allows you to adjust the amount of compression applied to the signal with one operation. By sliding the 1-knob
level slider to the right, more compression is applied. In situations where raising the fader or gain could cause clipping at louder
points in the signal, compression can deliver a more consistent sound.

gain easily.
