9. USING THE PRESET G
The Preset G, a memory that is different and independent from the Preset memories 1 through 16, can be
shared by these Preset memories.
By setting the parameters to be shared as Preset G, they can be commonly used by multiple Preset memories.
Each Preset memory retains its own original parameters. Cancelling the Preset G setting causes the original
parameters to be enabled.
When controlling multiple units, parameters set in the Preset G are simultaneously set to their all preset G.
The setting procedures for the Preset G are as follows.
Step 1. Display the Preset memory that includes the parameters to be shared on the screen.
Confirm that the “Store” button is disabled.
If the “Store” button is enabled, click the “Store” button to store the Preset memory currently being
recalled.
(Example when the Preset 1 is displayed)
43
Step 2. Click “Option
Preset G enable settings” from the menu bar.
The “Enable Preset G” screen is displayed.
Step 3. Select the Preset memory that intends to use the common parameters, then place checkmarks in the
parameter boxes.
To place checkmarks collectively throughout all Preset memories, perform setting on the screen
displayed when the ALL tab is clicked.
(Example when checkmarks are placed in the Preset 1’s Gain, Filter, and Delay boxes)
44
(Example when a checkmark is placed
in the Preset 2’s Gain box)
(Example when checkmarks are placed
in the Preset 3’s Filter and Delay boxes)
Step 4. Click the “OK” button on the “Enable Preset G” screen.
Setting is completed, and the screen returns to the display in Step 1.
The boxes corresponding to the set parameters are displayed in orange.
Step 5. To cancel the Preset G setting, return to Step 2, select the corresponding Preset memory, uncheck the
desired parameter checkboxes, then click the “OK” button.
For the cancelled parameters, the original parameters of the selected Preset memory become enabled.

be printed.
Note
If you do not want to print the default values for the Filter or Xover, click “Do not print the default values”
check box. This will save the number of the printout sheets and printing time.
Step 4. Press the [OK] button.

15. CONTACT INPUT TERMINAL
15.1. General Description
The DP-SP3 unit is equipped with 4 contact input terminals that permit preset memory change, output volume
control, and output mute control to be performed.
Present memory change function has been assigned by default; Pins 1 through 4 are assigned to Preset Nos. 1
through 4, respectively. Preset Nos. 1 through 4 can be individually recalled by shorting the terminals 1 through
4 to terminal C.
To perform change in Preset number to be recalled and changes to other functions, use the Contact-in setting
screen.
15.2. Contact-In Setting Screen Description
Select [Option
Contact input settings] from the menu to perform contact input settings.
(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
(5)
(6)
(1) Mode
Direct and Binary modes are available to assign input types to each Pin.
Direct: Controls by shorting each of Pins 1 through 4 to Terminal C.
Binary: Controls by shorting or opening between arbitrary ones of Pins 1 through 4 and Terminal C.
When setting to Binary, conduct settings in order from Pin 4.
(2) Function
Assign functions to each individual Pin.
“Preset” is assigned to all Pins as default.
Preset:
Preset memory change
Volume Up/Down: Output volume control
Mute:
Output mute
None:
No function is assigned to the Pin.
(3) Parameter
Set the corresponding Preset number when Pin’s function is assigned to “Preset,” and “Step” when assigned
to “Volume Up/Down.”
(4) Control
Perform control setting only when “Mute” function is assigned to the Pin.
Make: Mute is turned ON by shorting each Pin to Terminal C and turned OFF when released.
Pulse: Mute is switched between ON and OFF each time any Pin and Terminal C are shorted.

(5) Channel Select
Select the target channel of which control output volume and output mute are to be controlled.
(6) [Disable] button/ [Enable] button
Clicking the [Disable] button disables control from the Contact input, turning into [Enable] button.
Preset number of the controls performed before clicking the [Disable] button is retained, but both output
volume and output mute controls are cleared.
To control again, click the [Enable] button.

15.3. Function Assignment to the Contact Inputs
15.3.1. Preset memory change
[When in Direct mode]
Step 1. Set the Mode to [Direct] and Function to [Preset].
Step 2. Click the Parameter button, then select the Preset number from the pull-down menu.
[When in Binary mode]
Note: W
hen changing Preset in Binary mode, either output volume control or output mute control can be
assigned to other Pins.
When wishing to change 5 or more Presets using 4 Pins or when the necessary number of Pins cannot be
obtained because some Pins are occupied by other functions, the number of target Presets can be increased
using the less number of Pins when in binary mode.
Assign the necessary Pins to [Binary] mode depending on the number of Presets to use.
Pin number(s) in parenthesis is automatically selected.
Number of Presets to use
Presets 1 and 2
Presets 1 through 4
Presets 1 through 8
Presets 1 through 16
Pin to be selected for [Binary] mode
Pin 4
Pin 3, (4)
Pin 2, (3 and 4)
Pin 1, (2, 3, and 4)

15.3.2. Output volume control
Gives an offset value to the value set to the output attenuator.
Notes
• Output volume control can be performed only to the DP-SP3 unit targeted by the contact input.
• Group the output channels, then perform controls in groups.
• The channels belonging to the same group are equal in the obtained offset value but not in the output
attenuator value.
• It is not possible to assign the same channel to 2 or more groups.
• Control range is within the assignable value to output attenuator. (- ∞ to 0 dB)
• Even if the unit’s power is switched off, the given offset value can be effective when the power is switched on
again.
Assign the Volume Up or Volume Down function for a single group to the Pin.
Step 1. Set the function to [Volume Up] or [Volume Down].
Step 2. Select the parameter from the pull-down menu.
Step 3. Select the target channel to which the volume control function is assigned.
72
15.3.3. Output mute control
Assign the Mute ON/OFF function to the Pin.
Notes
• Output mute control is only available to the DP-SP3 unit targeted by the contact input.
• Group the output channels, then perform controls in groups.
• When “Pulse” is selected for the control method, even if the unit’s power is switched off, the output mute state
can be recalled when the power is switched on again.
• The output mute cannot be reset using the contact input for the channel of which output mute is set to ON with
the DP-SP3 PC Software.
Step 1. Set the mode to [Direct].
Step 2. Set the function to [Mute].
Step 3. Set the control to either [Make] or [Pulse].
Step 4. Select the target channel to which mute control function is assigned.
