• Make sure to observe the instructions in this manual as the conventions of safety symbols and messages
regarded as very important precautions are included.
• We also recommend you keep this instruction manual handy for future reference.
Safety Symbol and Message Conventions
Safety symbols and messages described below are used in this manual to prevent bodily injury and property
damage which could result from mishandling. Before operating your product, read this manual first and
understand the safety symbols and messages so you are thoroughly aware of the potential safety hazards.
WARNING
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could
result in death or serious personal injury.
CAUTION
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could
result in moderate or minor personal injury, and/or property damage.
WARNING
When Installing the Unit
When Installing the Unit
• Do not expose the unit to rain or an environment
where it may be splashed by water or other liquids,
as doing so may result in fire or electric shock.
• Never plug in nor remove the power supply plug
with wet hands, as doing so may cause electric
shock.
• Use the unit only with the voltage specified on the
unit. Using a voltage higher than that which is
specified may result in fire or electric shock.
• When unplugging the power supply cord, be sure
to grasp the power supply plug; never pull on the
cord itself. Operating the unit with a damaged
power supply cord may cause a fire or electric
shock.
• Do not cut, kink, otherwise damage nor modify the
power supply cord. In addition, avoid using the
power cord in close proximity to heaters, and never
place heavy objects -- including the unit itself -- on
the power cord, as doing so may result in fire or
electric shock.
When the Unit is in Use
• Should the following irregularity be found during
use, immediately switch off the power, disconnect
the power supply plug from the AC outlet and
contact your nearest TOA dealer. Make no further
attempt to operate the unit in this condition as this
may cause fire or electric shock.
· If you detect smoke or a strange smell coming
from the unit.
· If water or any metallic object gets into the unit
· If the unit falls, or the unit case breaks
· If the power supply cord is damaged (exposure of
the core, disconnection, etc.)
· If it is malfunctioning (no tone sounds.)
• To prevent a fire or electric shock, never open nor
remove the unit case as there are high voltage
components inside the unit. Refer all servicing to
your nearest TOA dealer.
• Do not place cups, bowls, or other containers of
liquid or metallic objects on top of the unit. If they
accidentally spill into the unit, this may cause a fire
or electric shock.
6
CAUTION
• Do not block the fan exhaust vent on the unit's rear
and the ventilation slots on the bottom. Doing so
may cause heat to build up inside the unit and
result in fire.
• Avoid installing the unit in humid or dusty locations,
in locations exposed to the direct sunlight, near the
heaters, or in locations generating sooty smoke or
steam as doing otherwise may result in fire or
electric shock.
• When installing the unit in an equipment rack,
observe the following instructions. Failure to do so
may result in fire or personal injury.
· Install the rack on a solid and stable surface.
Then, secure it with anchor bolts or make other
appropriate arrangements to prevent it from
falling down or moving.
· Use the screws supplied with the unit to mount on
TOA's rack.
· The AC outlet to which the unit's AC power cable
is connected must have allowable current
capacity over the unit's current consumption.
When the Unit is in Use
• Switch off the power, and unplug the power supply
plug from the AC outlet for safety purposes when
cleaning or leaving the unit unused for 10 days or
more. Doing otherwise may cause a fire or electric
shock.
2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
TOA's D-901 is a 19-inch rack-mounted (3U high) digital mixer configured with 12 inputs, 8 buses, and 8
outputs. It features signal processing functions necessary for sound systems such as feedback suppression
and auto-mixing. All functional parameters can be set at the unit*. Settings can be stored in the unit's internal
memory as "preset memory" and can be recalled using the front panel-mounted operation keys.
* Can also be set at a PC using the setting software, which can be downloaded from our website
"http://www.toa-products.com/international/".
3. FEATURES
• Acoustic feedback can be suppressed through simple operation.
• Auto-Mixing functions (Ducker*1 and NOM Attenuation*2) automatically adjust the input signal volume.
• Signals are digitally processed, ensuring high-accuracy sound parameter settings.
• All settings can be performed at the unit using the LCD screen and setting keys and knobs located on the
front panel. The settings can also be made at a PC using the dedicated software.
• Modular construction permits flexible configuration of inputs and outputs, from 2-IN/4-OUT to 12-IN/8-OUT
systems.
• Up to 16 preset patterns can be stored in memory, which can be easily recalled from either the unit or
connected external equipment.
• An RS-232C port permits remote control of the unit using an AMX or Crestron controller, or similar external
equipment. The control protocol is available for download at our website http://www.toaproducts.com/international/.
• A protect function prevents accidental changes of front panel key settings.
• The use of an optional D-981 or D-983 Remote Control Module, or an optional D-984VC VCA Control
Module permits easy remote operation of volume control and preset memory recall.
• The use of an optional D-984VC VCA Control Module permits the sound volume to be adjusted from remote
locations using the faders or volume controls.
*1 Automatically adjusts all channel gains in response to input signal level. (Refer to p. 38.)
*2 Automatically adjusts the input gain of open microphones corresponding to the number of open
microphones in the system. (Refer to p. 39.)

6. SETTING BASICS
6.1. Setting Procedures
The D-901's functions need to be set using the front-mounted keys and knob according to scenes of use. After
connecting all external equipment, check the following, then follow the procedures below to set each of the
unit's functions.
Check to be sure that
• The required modules are correctly inserted.
• The power supply is correctly connected.
• The power indicator lights when the power switch is turned on.
Step 1. Set which input channel signal is transmitted to which output channel.
Because the factory default setting is made so that each input (1 – 12) is assigned to all outputs (1
– 8) via the Microphone Bus*, when a microphone, or CD player or other music player is
connected to an input, its signals are output from all output terminals by simply increasing the
corresponding input channel gain. Make input-to-output re-assignment according to scenes of use.
* Refer to p. 84, Block Diagram.
(Refer to p. 41, Bus assignment settings.)
This setting can be performed in either of two ways: On the setting screen display or by way of the
front-mounted keys.
Step 2. Set the input sensitivity.
When the D-921E or D-921F is installed, perform this setting by displaying the setting screen.
(Refer to p. 26, PAD Settings.)
When the D-922E or D-922F is installed, perform this setting using its DIP switch.
(Refer to p. 12 – 13.)
Set the sensitivity so that the front-mounted Input channel indicator [SIG] does not light red.
Step 3. Set the input channel gain.
(Refer to p. 25, Input/Output Gain Settings.)
This setting can be performed in any of three ways: On the setting screen display (two methods)
or by way of the front-mounted keys.
Note: When using the D-984VC VCA Control Module, perform gain settings as well for the input
channel to be remotely controlled.
Step 4. Set the output channel gain.
(Refer to p. 25, Input/Output Gain Settings.)
This setting can be performed in any of three ways: On the setting screen display (two methods)
or by way of the front-mounted keys.
Note: When using the D-984VC VCA Control Module, perform gain settings as well for the output
channel to be remotely controlled.
Step 5. Set individual functions as required.
(Refer to p. 18, Setting Flowcharts.)
Refer to the setting flowcharts for the appropriate setting method for the function to be used.
When using Stereo Link, Grouping and Crossover functions, first perform the required settings
on the Utility setting screen.
17
Note
It is highly recommended that any changed parameters be immediately saved as preset memory on the
Preset Memory setting screen. (Refer to p. 57, Preset Memory Save.) This permits the parameters of each
function to be saved and protected, even if the power is switched off. All currently saved parameters can be
recalled and reproduced when the power is switch on again. (Refer to p. 60, Initial Preset Memory Selection.)
Settings need not be saved when temporarily setting or changing parameters.
6.2. Setting Flowcharts
All the functions described hereinafter can also be set at a PC using the dedicated software. Please access
our website "http://www.toa-products.com/international/" for its download.
In the following charts, the Screen shift keys [
] are used to move vertically (next screen display) and the
shift keys [
] to move horizontally between the solid line setting screen boxes (
) . For movements
within the dotted line setting screen boxes (
) and parameter settings for each setting screen, refer to the

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.

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 (previous page).

When any of the following screens is displayed, the ducker function for the displayed channel can
be enabled or disabled by means of the function ON/OFF key. When enabled (ON), the function

8.16. NOM Attenuation ON/OFF Settings
The NOM Attenuation function is one of the D-901's auto-mixing functions, and automatically adjusts
individual input channel gains in response to input signal level. Refer to p. 37 for the block diagram of the
Auto-Mixing section.
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
Utility setting screen (p. 61) 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 (p. 37).
Note: When an input channel is set to OFF, the NOM function on that channel does not operate.

12.4. NOM Attenuation Settings
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
following setting screen 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. Set each input channel to enable or
disable this function. (Refer to p. 39.)
This function operates in each of the auto-mixing groups, GROUP A through D (p. 37).

Operation misses can be avoided by protecting front panel-mounted key operations.
Tips
• To make subsequent protections valid when the power is ON after the initial Protect function settings, save
the configuration (p. 60). (However, if the Protection function is enabled in the way described below, the
configuration save needs not be performed because the latest configuration including the Protection function
settings are automatically saved at the moment of the key operation.) Settings are saved as system data,
and setting status is maintained even if the preset memory is recalled.
• Control operations can be performed either by way of the RS-232C port or the remote control module even
when in protection mode.
• Configuration can also be saved by pressing the Setting knob at this screen.

14. FIRMWARE UPDATE
The D-901's firmware can be updated using the software program (D901PCvxxxe_fxxx.exe)*1 made available
on the TOA internet site [http://www.toa-products.com/]. To update the firmware, download the software
program to install it into your PC. (For the installation procedure, refer to the "D901 PC Software Instruction
Manual" also available on the same site.)
The firmware update is performed by using the D-901 Firmware Update Utility program simultaneously
installed with the D-901 PC Software.
Follow the procedure for the firmware update below.
After updating the firmware, use the latest D-901 instruction manual that can also be downloaded from the
website above.
*1 The software version number can be confirmed at the xxx indication. For example when the PC Software
version is 3.00 and Firmware version is 3.01, it is indicated as "D901PCv300e_f301.exe.
Step 1. Connect both RS-232C ports of the D-901 and the PC using a 9-pin straight cable (male-to-female
cord).
Step 2. Make RS-232C port settings at the D-901.
Set the control mode to "UPDATE*2" and the transmission rate to "115200 bps" (recommended).
(Refer to p. 70.)
*2 Set "NONE" for the version 1.xx firmware.
Step 3. Select the menu items [Start → Program → TOA Digital Audio Control → Update D-901 Firmware].
The D-901 Firmware Update screen appears.

Step 4. Click the Comm Settings button.
The Comm Settings screen appears.
75
Step 5. Set the PC's Com port the D-901 is connected to, and the Speed (baud rate*) equal to the D-901's
RS-232C transmission rate.
Click OK, then the Comm Settings screen closes.
* Set the same value as that set in Step 2.
Step 6. Click the Update button of the D-901 Firmware Update screen.
The firmware update starts being transferred from the PC to the D-901.
The following screen appears after the update ends.
[If "No Reply" is displayed]
If the screen on the right appears after clicking the
Update button, confirm the following:
• RS-232C cable specification and connection
Check that 9-pin straight cable (male - female) is
used.
• RS-232C settings at the D-901 (p. 70)
Check that the control mode is set to UPDATE*.
* Set "NONE" for the version 1.xx firmware.
• PC communication settings (above on this page)
After confirming all the above items, follow the procedure from Sep 3 again.
If the same "No Replay" indication still appears in this Step 6, turn the D-901's power off, and on
again. Then, follow the steps again from the beginning.
76
Step 7. Turn the D-901's power off, and on again.
Confirm the firmware version number that appears on the LCD screen at the unit's power-on. When
the new version number is indicated, update has been completed correctly.

• The socket-outlet shall be installed near the
equipment and the plug (disconnecting device)
shall be easily accessible.
• When installing the unit in an equipment rack, pay
attention not to block the ventilation slots on the
unit's bottom. It is recommended that a Perforated
panel of over 1-unit in size be mounted directly
below the unit as shown below.
Attentions
• Installer l'appareil aussi loin que possible des
amplificateurs ou autres équipements générant de
la chaleur.
• La prise doit être installée à proximité de
l'équipement et la fiche (dispositif de déconnexion)
doit être facilement accessible.
• Lors de l'installation de l'appareil en bâti, veiller à
ne pas obstruer les évents de ventilation sur le
dessous. Il est recommandé de monter un panneau
perforé plus grand que l'appareil directement sur ce
dernier, comme indiqué ci-dessous.
