1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE D-2000 SETTING SOFTWARE
The D-2000 system is comprised of the D-2008SP Digital Mixing Processor, the D-2012C Remote Console and
the dedicated software used to perform settings for each unit. (In this manual, both the D-2008SP and D-2012C
are collectively referred to as the "Unit.")
For the D-2008SP, use the dedicated setting software to set the following acoustic signal processing functions
and to perform the settings for each installed module.
The largest-scale system can be configured with 4 D-2008SPs, 4 D-2012Cs, and 1 PC.
• Feedback suppressor (FBS) function
• Matrix function
• Trim gain function
• Fader function
• Filter function
• Crossover function
• Delay function
• Compressor/Leveler function
• Auto-mixing function
Equipped with 8 function keys, 12 motorized faders, and 8 rotary encoders, the D-2012C can control the
D-2008SP's signal processing parameters and faders (volumes).
Settings can be performed regardless of whether the PC and the unit are in communication (online) or not
(offline). Note that prior parameter settings for feedback suppression, level monitor and compressor reduction
indication cannot be displayed or operated without being online. The PC communicates with the unit via a
network. While they are online, the PC can remotely recall preset memories and change the settings of acoustic
signal processing on the unit in real time.
Set data can be stored in the PC.
Install the supplied D-2000 Setting Software on a PC meeting the requirements below.

19
Step 15. Click the "Next" button.
The Stereo Link Configuration screen is displayed.
Step 16. Perform Stereo Link Configuration settings.
Checking the checkbox of a channel allows stereo link settings for that channel in 2-channel units.
[Stereo link functions]
• Performing Stereo Link settings for adjoining channels (such as Channels 1 and 2, 3 and 4, and 5
and 6) causes signal processing parameters for Compressor/Auto-Leveler, filter, and other
functions to be linked. If a signal processing parameter for either channel is modified, the
corresponding parameter of the other "linked" channel also simultaneously changes.
• The Stereo Link function can be independently set for input and output sides. Enable the Stereo
Link setting when wishing to make the settings of both left and right channels identical, such as
when a stereo input is received from a CD player or other stereo sound source and stereo output
is sent to a tape recorder or similar stereo equipment.
[Stereo link setting restrictions]
• If you assign the bus from the stereo-linked input channel to the stereo-linked output channel, both
left and right channels are simultaneously assigned. For example, when Input 1 is stereo-linked to
Input 2, and Output 1 is linked to Output 2, if Input 1 is assigned to Output 1, Input 2 is also
similarly assigned to Output 2. However, you cannot assign Input 1 to Output 2 or Input 2 to
Output 1.
• Stereo-Link settings cannot be performed for the output channels that have employed the
crossover function. Conversely, the stereo-linked channels cannot use the crossover function.
• The FBS function cannot be used for the stereo-linked bus channels.

Step 22. Click the setting contents to perform the crossover combination settings.
Setting status is displayed on the right side of the screen.
When "2-way" is selected on a channel, its next channel is used together.
When "3-way" is selected on a channel, its next 2 channels are used together.
When "4-way" is selected on a channel, its next 3 channels are used together.
Note
Performing the crossover combination settings causes 1 or 2 output filter points on the
corresponding channel to be used: 1 filter point is used when HPF or LPF is set, and 2 filter points
when BPF (both HPF and LPF) is set.
[2-way/2-channel setting example]

7.4. D-981, D-983, and D-984VC Control Modules Settings
7.4.1. General description of the D-981, D-983, and D-984VC
Notes
• The controllable channels from the contact input/output or VCA are limited to the unit's channel where the
control module is inserted.
• The D-2012C's function key can operate LED control for the multiple D-2008SP units, but the contact input
operation takes precedence when the target D-2008SP has been LED controlled with the contact input.
[Contact Input function and contact output function]
Installing the optional D-981 or D-983 Remote Control Module or D-984VC VCA Control Module into the D2008SP permits the D-2008SP's memory recall, volume Up/Down, channel ON/OFF, LED control and stereo
input selection (when the D-936R or D-937SP is installed) to be remotely operated by external equipment.
Also, the following statuses can be output to external equipment: D-2008SP's memory, channel ON/OFF,
stereo input (when the D-936R or D-937SP is installed), LED control, and contact input.
For the installation of each module, refer to the instruction manual included with the D-2008SP.
External remote control is performed by shorting terminals 1 – 8 (1 – 24 for the D-983) to the C terminal.
Taking the contact input setting as an example, when terminals 1 – 8 are assigned to preset memory Nos. 1 –
8 respectively by means of the memory selection function, if each terminal is shorted to the C terminal, preset
memory Nos. 1 – 8 can be recalled.
Terminals 1 – 8 are assigned as "Preset memory 1 – 8" for both the initial input and output settings. Other
contacts are assigned to "None" or "Normally break." By changing the settings on the contact input and output
setting screens, many different functions can be assigned to the contact input and output.
The control target range with the contact input differs depending on the assigned function. The following table
shows the control target range by the contact input.

The Change Safe function is a function to prevent the following parameters from being recalled when the
preset memory number is changed.
• Fader:
Gain, channel ON/OFF, grouping number, group trim gain
• Matrix crosspoint: Gain, crosspoint ON/OFF
Assign the channel the fader belongs to and the matrix crosspoint to any one of 4 groups (a) to (d).
Then, the parameters of channel fader and matrix crosspoint assigned to the Change Safe group cannot be
recalled from the preset memory.
The Change Safe groups (a to d) are displayed in the Memory view, if set. (Refer to p. 31.)
Notes
• The Change Safe groups (see p. 128 and p. 129) assigned to channels and matrix crosspoints are common
to all preset memories.
As long as the Change Safe group is set to the currently selected preset memory (see the next page), the
above-mentioned parameters of the channel (fader) and matrix crosspoints included in the group can neither
be stored nor discarded even if they are changed.
• If you set a preset memory where such 2 channels are grouped in the same grouping number as one
assigned to the Change Safe group and the other not, both channels' faders may indicate different values.
(See below.)
• When changing the fader's grouping number by external control protocol, also note the relation with the
Change Safe group setting to avoid the difference in fader values as explained above.

12. GLOSSARY
• Auto-Leveler function
The auto-leveler function performs to keep the output level constant by suppressing the change of sound
volume. Setting the target level (the constant level to be automatically adjusted to) and the maximum gain (the
amount of gain to bring the lower level to the target level) automatically compensates for the input level. Note
that setting an excessive amount of gain increases the input sensitivity, easily causing feedback.
• Gate function
The gate function allows the input signal to be passed, attenuated or cut depending on its signal level.
The gate allows the signal to pass when open, and attenuates or cuts the signal when closed. The gate opens
when the input signal reaches a level above the Threshold plus Hysteresis parameter (half the Hysteresis).
Once open, the input signal must reach a level below the Threshold minus Hysteresis parameter to close.The
Ducker function and the NOM attenuation function are controlled by the gate's open/close operations.
Note
The gate opens when the input channel is set to ON even if the gate is set to OFF.
• Auto-Mixing function
Both the Ducker function and the NOM Attenuation function are Auto-Mixing functions that automatically
adjust individual input channel gains in response to input signal level.
The Auto-Mixing functions can operate in each of the 4 groups, GROUP A through D. Although all the input
channels are grouped into GROUP A by default, they can be individually assigned to the desired groups.
• Ducker function
The ducker function is one of the D-2008SP's Auto-Mixing functions that adjusts individual input channel gains
in response to input signal level.
When a received signal exceeds the gate threshold level, the ducker function automatically attenuates all
other input signals which are lower than that input channel in priority.
This function operates in individual Auto-Mixing groups.
Note
When an input channel is set to OFF, the ducker function for that channel does not operate.
• NOM Attenuation function
The NOM Attenuation function is one of the D-2008SP's Auto-Mixing functions that adjusts individual input
channel gains in response to input signal level.
NOM is an acronym of Number of Open Microphones, and represents the number of microphones in open
status (the number of input channels with open gates).
The NOM attenuation function automatically adjusts the open microphone's input channel gain depending on
the number of open microphones. The open microphone channel gain is attenuated by the gain set on the
Auto mix View each time the number of open microphones doubles. The use of this function allows an output
level to be kept constant, thus helping to prevent feedback.
This function operates in individual Auto-Mixing groups.
When an input channel is set to OFF, the NOM attenuation function for that channel does not operate.
152
• Preset memory
Set parameters can be stored in preset memory 1 – 32.
Parameters that can be stored in preset memory are as follows:
Input channel parameters:
PAD, phantom power, line input mode selection, line input selection, input trim
gain, input trim polarity, input filter, Compressor / Auto-Leveler mode selection,
Compressor / Auto-Leveler, level sensibility, gate, auto mixing function group,
ducker, NOM attenuation function ON/OFF, input channel gain, channel
ON/OFF, and group trim gain
Bus channel parameters:
Feedback suppression (dynamic mode ON/OFF, settings of the number of
filters, and filter value set in auto mode and dynamic mode), sub-in-mix-gain,
sub-in-mix ON/OFF, bus channel gain, channel ON/OFF, and group trim gain
Output channel parameters: Output channel gain, group trim gain, channel ON/OFF, filter (including
crossover), compressor, delay time, and mute
Others:
Stereo link setting, crossover function configuration setting, NOM attenuation
function setting, and matrix assignment
• Change Safe function
The Change Safe function works so as not to recall the following parameters when the preset memory is
changed.
Fader:
Gain, channel ON/OFF, grouping number, group trim gain
Matrix crosspoint: Gain, crosspoint ON/OFF
[Application example]
In hotel's banquet halls, when a large room is divided by partitions, different setting data for the newly used
room can be recalled from the preset memory while not affecting the sound volume or input-to-output routing
in the other room being used.

13. SETTING DATA SAMPLES
Setting data samples are contained in the CD supplied with the D-2008SP as files "Gymnasium.d8t,"
"Hall.d8t," and "Changesafe. d8t."
Providing the simple setting examples (data samples) intends to help you make the on-site system design
using the D-2000 Setting Software.
Each data sample is created for the system on the assumption of imaginary facility.
Referring to the sample as an example, make the optimum settings for the actual system depending on the
installation site or unit configuration.
Pay special attention to the Change Safe function setting as incorrect set contents or incorrect operations may
result in such system malfunctions that no sound is output or the sound volume cannot be reduced.
The setting data samples have been set in the following environments.
D-2000 Setting Software: Ver. 4.0.0
D-2008SP firmware:
Ver. 4.0.0
D-2012C firmware:

Includes one D-2008SP and one D-2012C.
Assumed to be used in an elementary school gymnasium.
Intended for speech and music playback applications such as lectures or gym classes.
The sample data is so made to operate the system by simply turning on the power and increasing the input
source fader.
Memory 2 provides a pattern that speech has precedence over music playback, which is set by a ducker
function in the Automix view. In this pattern, beginning speech automatically decreases BGM volume, and
stopping speech restores the BGM volume to its original level.
To increase sound clarity for the microphone and wireless microphone inputs, HPF is set in the input Filter
view. To protect these inputs from excessive signals, the Comp function is set.
To simplify the volume control for CD, MD, and cassette player inputs, the stereo link is set.
A microphone bus is set up, and the FBS function is set for the bus to prevent feedback.
Recommended parameters for the speakers to be connected to the speaker output are set in the output
Filter view.
To protect the speakers from excessive signals, the Comp function is set.
Channel assignment is made to the D-2012C so that inputs and outputs can be individually controlled.
Operating the faders of the BGM bus and microphone bus controls the sound volume collectively on each
BGM channel and microphone channel.
Fader layers are not used.
A monitor speaker is connected to the monitor output, enabling sound monitoring without actually outputting
sound.

parameters are set.
To increase sound clarity for the microphone and wireless microphone inputs, HPF is set in the Filter view.
To protect the microphone and wireless microphone inputs from excessive signals, the Comp function is set
in the Comp/Leveler view.
The FBS function is set for the microphone and wireless microphone to prevent feedback.
The D-2012C performs volume controls for individual inputs and outputs.
Channel assignment is made to two D-2012Cs so that inputs and outputs can be separately controlled: input
channels are assigned to the D-2012C with ID 1, and output channels to the D-2012C with ID 2.

13.3. Setting Example for Use in Hotel's Banquet Halls (Change Safe function is used.)
The data sample "Changesafe.d8t" is a setting example for the system in a hotel's banquet hall.
13.3.1. System description
• Assumed to be used in a hotel's banquet hall divisible into 3 smaller rooms.
• Includes one D-2008SP to be located in the main room, and one D-2012C in each divided room (3 units in
total).
• Intended for speech and music playback applications.
• Allows operations for a combined room created by removing the partition between 2 rooms.
• Preset memories are set suitably for each divided room applications.
• Applications in other 2 rooms may change while one room is in use. (See p. 160, "Example of use.")

13.3.5. Description for settings
[Example of use]
Below is an example where one of divided 3 rooms remains in use with 3-divided room setting pattern, and its
setting pattern is switched to 2-divided room setting pattern after the remaining 2 rooms are combined into
one.
• Memory 1 (3-divided room setting pattern for each divided room A, B, and C)
Change Safe group setting: None
Banquet hall A
Banquet hall B
In the morning, Banquet halls A, B, and C are individually used.
Banquet hall C
• Memory 2 (2-divided room setting pattern for each divided room A, and B + C)
Change Safe group setting: Group (a)
Banquet hall A
Banquet halls B + C
Afternoon, Banquet hall A remains in use, while Banquet halls B and C
are not individually used, being combined into 1 room for which the
D-2012C dedicated to Banquet hall B is used.
[Settings and usage]
• Assign input and output channels, and signal routing to the Change Safe group (a).
• Memory 1 has the setting pattern to be used for each of Banquet halls A, B, and C. No Change Safe group
is set.
• Memory 2 has the setting pattern to be used for an independent Banquet hall A and a combined B & C hall
separately. The Change Safe group is set to the group (a).
• When Memory 1 is switched to Memory 2, the parameters for Fader and Matrix Point belonging to the
Change Safe group (a) are maintained owing to the Change Safe group function.
• If the microphone and speaker channels in Banquet hall C are set to Fader Layer 2 of the D-2012C
dedicated to Banquet hall B, this allows the same D-2012C to operate for the combined B & C hall.
• In this example above, if 2 divided rooms are supposed to be fixed for use, recalling the preset Memory 2
needs the channel and routing for Banquet hall A to have been recalled first. In this case, Memory 2 cannot
be used, and other preset memory assigned to no Change Safe group is required. For example, prepare
and use Memory 3 having a 2-divided room setting pattern which is created for the system of Banquet hall A
and a combined B & C hall with the Change Safe group set to "None."
