LISTENING FOR A LIFE TIME
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment.
Now it’s time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. VocoPro and the
Electronic Industries Association’s 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 Association’s
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
Example

1. Power - This button is the main power switch to the DA-1000 Pro.
2. Source - This button toggles between the two available A/V channels that can be connected to the
DA-1000 Pro. Common A/V peripherals include CD+G players, DVD players and VCD players.
Note: Though the A/V channels have been labeled “CD+G” and “DVD” on the front and rear panels, it is
possible to have other compatible digital A/V device(s) connected to the DA-1000 Pro.
3. Voice Cancel - This feature is used to cancel out the vocal layer on a 2-channel multiplexed CD+G, VCD or
cassette. In order for this feature to work properly, the disc should be “multiplexed”. When a multiplexed disc is
playing, press the VOICE CANCEL button once to remove the vocal layer. Press a second time, and the vocal
layer will be reestablished.
Note: If you try to utilize this feature while a standard or non-multiplexed disc is playing, it will not work as this
feature is designed to work with multiplexed discs only.
4. Voice Partner - This feature acts very similar to the Voice Cancel feature, but with an added voice activation
feature that acts like a vocal “auto-pilot”. When you utilize the VOICE PARTNER feature, the vocal layer will be
removed as long as you are singing into the microphone. When you stop singing into the microphone, the vocal
layer will automatically be added back into the music. To activate VOICE PARTNER, press button once.
To remove VOICE PARTNER, press a 2nd time.
Note: If you have both the Voice Cancel and the Voice Partner buttons pressed in at the same time, the
Voice Cancel feature will override the Voice Partner feature.
5. Power, Source and Left/Right Channel Output Displays - These lighted displays are visual representations of
the DA-1000 Pro’s real-time activity. The POWER and SOURCE displays tell you if the unit is turned on, and
which source the DA-1000 Pro is recognizing as it’s current source (amber for A/V 1, green for A/V 2).
The LEFT and RIGHT LEVEL output displays reflect the output levels from the source unit i.e. DVD, CD+G.
They measure from green (low) to red (high). When you see the levels reaching the red, that is known as
“peaking”, and means you should probably lower the Master Volume or Master Mic levels to avoid distortion
and possible damage to speakers.
6. Master Music, Bass and Treble - These knobs control VOLUME, BASS and TREBLE levels from the MASTER
MUSIC device. The MASTER MUSIC control knob, adjusts the overall VOLUME level from the current playing
source, while the BASS and TREBLE control knobs adjust the Bass and Treble levels from the source.
Note: Microphone levels are not adjusted with these knobs as they have their own separate controls

7. Mic Master - The MIC MASTER control knob serves as a single output level control for all 3 MIC channels
(irrespective of their individual setting). This allows you to increase or decrease MIC output levels with one turn
of the knob.
Note: If you desire to adjust the output level of just one Mic channel in particular, it is recommended to use
that Mic’s individual output level control instead of the MIC MASTER control because all Mic channels will be
adjusted with the intended channel.
8. Mic Bass and Treble - The MIC BASS and TREBLE control knobs serve as a MASTER BASS and TREBLE control
for all 3 Mic channels. To add more BASS or TREBLE to the Mic channels, simply turn either of the knobs
clockwise to increase levels or counter-clockwise to decrease levels.
Note: BASS and TREBLE levels for each of the Mic channels cannot be adjusted individually.
9. Digital Echo, Delay and Repeat -The DIGITAL ECHO, DELAY and REPEAT knobs control the DA-1000 Pro’s
effects processing levels. As with the Mic master, bass and treble controls, the DIGITAL ECHO, DELAY and
REPEAT knobs will alter the levels of effects on all 3 Mic channels simultaneously. The DIGITAL ECHO knob
controls the overall echo applied to the 3 Mic channels, the DELAY knob controls the interval time between
each echo and the REPEAT knob controls the # of times the echo will repeat. For all 3 effects knobs, turn
clockwise to increase and counter-clockwise to decrease.
10.
in. Mic Jacks - These jacks for microphones or instruments. The DA-1000 Pro supports 3 Mic channels,
and can transmit sound though all 3 simultaneously or duo’s and trio’s.
1/4”
11. Mic Channel Level Controls - These knobs control the MIC CHANNELS output levels individually.
This makes it possible to adjust just one Mic channel without affecting the other 2 channels. This can be useful
when one person or (Mic channel) might be overpowering others in a duo or trio.
Turn clockwise to increase output levels, and counter-clockwise to decrease output levels.
12. Mic Channel Digital Echo Controls - Each Mic channel has one of these buttons. By pressing it, you activate
the DIGITAL ECHO for that channel. By depressing it, you remove the DIGITAL ECHO from that channel.
This is handy when performing live due to the ease of a “one-touch” cancellation, instead of the turning of
several knobs.

1. Audio Out (2) - The DA-1000 Pro has 2 sets of RCA style AUDIO OUT jacks. These jacks are typically used to supply
output to power amplifiers, however, effects processors, key controllers and other compatible equipment may be
connected to these jacks. Connect the cables from the AUDIO IN jacks of you external device(s) to these
AUDIO OUT jacks.
2. CD+G Audio In – This set of RCA jacks are for connecting the audio component from A/V device 1 (CD+G) to the
DA-1000 Pro. Connect the cables from the AUDIO OUT jacks on A/V device 1 to these AUDIO IN jacks.
3. DVD Audio In – This set of RCA jacks are for connecting the audio component from A/V device 2 to the
DA-1000 Pro. Connect the cables from the AUDIO OUT jacks on A/V device 2 to these AUDIO IN jacks.
4. CD+G Video In - This RCA jack is for connecting the video component from A/V device 1 to the DA-1000 Pro.
Connect the cable from the VIDEO OUT jack on A/V device 1 to this VIDEO IN jack.
5. DVD Video In - This RCA jack is for connecting the video component from A/V device 2 to the DA-1000 Pro.
Connect the cable from the VIDEO OUT jack on A/V device 2 to this VIDEO IN jack.
6. Video Out (2) - The DA-1000 Pro has 2 RCA style VIDEO OUT jacks. These jacks are used to supply video to
monitors, TFT displays and compatible TV’s. Connect the cable(s) from the VIDEO IN jack(s) on the display device(s)
to the VIDEO OUT jack(s).
7. Voltage Selector - The VOLTAGE SELECTOR is a switch that can change the voltage from 115V to 230V.
Before your DA-1000 Pro is shipped from the factory, the switch is set to 115V. If you live in a country that has
230-240V voltage requirements, you MUST change the voltage setting to 230V.
Note: Compatible fuse(s) 0.1 A and 0.05 A.

ADVANCED OPERATION
When to use Voice Cancel
First off, you must have a multiplexed disc. If you are playing a standard CD+G, CD or VCD that is not multiplexed, nothing
will happen when you press the VOICE CANCEL button. When a multiplex disc is in use the VOICE CANCEL can be a very
versatile feature. Lets’ say you want to practice singing to a particular song, but without the vocal layer, simply press the
VOICE CANCEL button.
Note: If you are playing DVD’s, which are recorded in a “multi-track” format, Please use the audio feature on the DVD
itself to accomplish this task.
When to use Voice Partner
As with Voice Cancel, VOICE PARTNER only works with multiplex discs. This feature acts very similar to the Voice Cancel
feature, but with an added voice activation feature that acts like a vocal “auto-pilot”. When you utilize the VOICE PARTNER
feature, the vocal layer will be removed as long as you are singing into the microphone. When you stop singing into the
microphone, the vocal layer will automatically be added back into the music. This feature is especially handy if you are
performing solo and want to sing a duet. In this case, when you finish singing your verse, the “other singer” will
automatically enter to sing his/her part! This is also very useful for learning new songs.
Note: There may be a 1 second delay time before the vocals are brought back in if the song is in the middle of a verse.
Switching A/V Channels
Since the DA-1000 Pro has 2 A/V inputs, you can switch between them via the SOURCE button. Let’s say you are
performing live, and want to do 2 songs back to back, but they are on different discs! Instead of stopping to switch CD’s
between songs (not very good for live performances), have a disc cued in A/V 2, and simply hit the SOURCE button and
PLAY, You are back in action!
Balancing the Music with the Vocals
Have you ever been to a musical performance where the music was so loud that you could barely hear the singer?
Or maybe to a performance where the singer was so loud that the music was drowned out? Those situations are created
with poor musical balancing. To avoid these situations the DA-1000 Pro has a MASTER, BASS and TREBLE control for
both the music and the Mic levels. If you find that music is too loud, simply adjust the MASTER MUSIC control knob for
the music. Also, keep in mind that BASS and TREBLE levels also affect the overall “sound” and can be adjusted to correct
sound balancing problems.
Balancing Microphone Levels
When adjusting Mic levels, it is recommended to do so in this order:
1) First adjust the MASTER MIC control knob to an appropriate level without background music and test.
2) Then balance the BASS and TREBLE levels for fine tuning.
3) Start background music and adjust each MIC CHANNEL accordingly.
4) Remember to compensate if the background music has striking volume changes.
5) Do a complete song for complete balancing success.
Using Digital Echo
The DA-1000 Pro has a built in, adjustable Digital Echo effects processor that can really add a spacious feeling to the
vocals. You can adjust the ECHO in several ways. First off, you can adjust the overall ECHO applied to the Mic channels
via the DIGITAL ECHO control knob. This limits the echo to all 3 channels together. Once you have your master ECHO
level established, you can start customizing the nature of the echo via the DELAY and REPEAT controls. The DELAY knob
controls the interval time between each echo and the REPEAT knob controls the # of times the echo will repeat. By fine
tuning these controls, you can achieve the “perfect” echo effect. Each Mic channel has it’s own DIGITAL ECHO ON/OFF
switch to add/remove echo individually. To add, press button in. To remove, depress button out.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
Digital Echo:
Digital echo is a synthetically processed sound effect that mimics natural echo. Echo in
general is the “bouncing” of waves back and forth between 2 surfaces. This effect gives a
spacious or ambient feeling that works great with vocals.
Repeat:
Repeat is facet of the echo process. Repeat refers to the frequency of echoes within a period
of time.
Delay:
Delay is also a facet of the echo process. Delay refers to the amount of time that exists
between echoes.
