7.6. Auto-Mute
This function box for stereo input is used to set the Auto-Mute function* for each of monaural output channels 1 – 4.
* This function attenuates the stereo input level when the monaural input signal level exceeds the threshold.
All monaural inputs 1 – 8 become triggers that attenuate the stereo input level. Threshold can be set individually
for each monaural input.
Attenuation and hold time can be set individually for stereo inputs 1 and 2.
(Application example)
Connection of a microphone to the monaural input, and a background music (BGM) device to the stereo input:
The Auto-Mute function automatically reduces the BGM level during microphone announcements to make it
easier to hear the announcement.
For more information on the Auto-Mute function, see p. 118, “Automatic mute function” in the Glossary.

Selector button.
The start threshold can be set by dragging the
threshold point (gray circle) up and down.
Start threshold
Threshold point
The start threshold set here is reflected in the
“Threshold Settings” indication.
Note on Start threshold level and end threshold
level:
If the monaural input level set to become a trigger
exceeds the start threshold, the Auto-Mute function
is enabled and the stereo input gain is attenuated.
If the monaural input level drops below the end
threshold, the Auto-Mute is disabled and, after a
hold time passes, the stereo input gain is gradually
restored.
Since hysteresis (the difference between start and
end thresholds) is fixed at 12 dB, the end threshold
is automatically set to a value 12 dB below the start
threshold.
The orange line in the threshold control indicates
the start threshold, and the gray line indicates the
end threshold.

Use the matrix function boxes for output signal
assignment (see the next item “Matrix”).
• Since the L (left) channel of both stereo inputs
1 and 2 cannot be assigned to Output 2 in the
matrix stereo assignment settings, the ON/OFF
button is not displayed at an Output 2 matrix
point. Similarly, since the R (right) channel
cannot be assigned to Output 1 in the matrix
stereo assignment settings, the ON/OFF button
is not displayed at an Output 1 matrix point.
• Auto-Mute ON/OFF settings are interlocked with
both L and R stereo channels.
Reduction level point
Hold time point
The reduction level and hold time set here are
reflected in the Mute Settings display.
Note on Auto-Mute operation:
If the monaural input level set as the trigger
exceeds the start threshold, the Auto-Mute function
is enabled and the stereo input gain gradually
attenuates to the reduction level. The stereo input
gain’s fade-out time varies depending on the
reduction level setting. The fade-out time slope
(length) is fixed, and set at 0.65 seconds when the
reduction level is −30 dB.
When the monaural input level drops below the end
threshold, the Auto-Mute is disabled and, after a
hold time passes, the stereo input gain is gradually
restored.
The stereo input gain’s fade-in time varies
depending on the reduction level settings. The
fade-in time slope (length) is fixed, and set to 1.3
seconds when the attenuation level is −30 dB.

10.4.1. Assigning button functions
The following functions can be set for each button on the ZM Remote Controller:
[Channel On/Off]
Switches the specified channel On or Off.
Select the channel in the “Channel Kind” column of Parameter 1 and the “Channel No.” column of Parameter 2.
Parameter 1
Channel Kind
Mono In
Stereo In
Mono Out
Rec Out
Parameter 2
Channel No.
1–8
1–2
1–4
L, R
Channels toggle between On and Off with each depression of the ZM Remote Controller’s button.
88
[EXT VOL. Gain]
Used to increase or reduce the EXT VOL. fader gain for the selected channels. Use the “Channel Kind” column
of Parameter 1 and the “Channel No.” column of Parameter 2 to select the channel. The gain increases or
decreases by 1 dB with each depression of the ZM Remote Controller’s button. If the button is held down and
the terminal is kept closed, the gain continues to increase or decrease.
Notes
• This function is allocated to 2 buttons in consecutive order.
Gain “Up” is allocated to the button with the lower number, and gain “Down” is allocated to the button with
the higher number. For example, if this function is selected for Button 2, it is automatically allocated to both
Buttons 2 and 3, giving Button 2 the “Up” function and Button 3 the “Down” function.
For this reason, it is impossible to allocate the “UP” function to Button 4 of the ZM-9011 and ZM-9014 Remote
Controllers and to Button 8 of the ZM-9013 Remote Controller.
• This function does not work even if allocated to any channel that has its EXT VOL. fader disabled.
[ST Line Source Select]
Selects stereo input sources (A, B and C).
Select stereo input 1 or 2 in the “Channel No.” column of Parameter 1. For A, B and C channel selection, use
the “Line Source” column of Parameter 2.
Operation differs depending on the stereo input trim mode settings.
(1) MIX ALL mode
The ON and OFF settings of Terminals A, B and C set in the “Line Source” column are switched. Sources
are toggled between ON and OFF each time the ZM Remote Controller’s corresponding button is pressed.
(2) SELECT mode
Input source A, B or C set in the “Line Source” column is selected and set to ON when its corresponding
ZM Remote Controller’s button is pressed. When sources A, B and C are assigned to multiple buttons, the
last selected button takes precedence.
[Matrix Crosspoint Assign]
The assign ON/OFF settings of the specified matrix crosspoint are switched. Select the crosspoint in the “Input
Channel” column of Parameter 1 and in the “Output Channel” column of Parameter 2.
Parameter 1
Input channel
Mono In 1 – 8
Stereo In 1 – 2
Parameter 2
Output channel
Mono Out 1 – 4
Assignment status alternates between ON and OFF with each depression of the ZM Remote Controller’s
corresponding button.
[Matrix Crosspoint Gain]
Used to increase or reduce the specified matrix crosspoint’s gain. Select the crosspoint in the “Input Channel”
column of Parameter 1 and in the “Output Channel” column of Parameter 2.
The gain increases or decreases by 1 dB with each depression of the ZM Remote Controller’s button. If the
button is held down and the terminal is kept closed, the gain continues to increase or decrease.
Note
This function is allocated to any 2 buttons in consecutive order.
Gain “Up” is allocated to the button with the lower number, and gain “Down” is allocated to the button with the
higher number. For example, if this function is selected for Button 2, it is automatically allocated to both Buttons
2 and 3, giving Button 2 the “Up” function and Button 3 the “Down” function.
For this reason, the “UP” function cannot be assigned to Button 4 of the ZM-9011 and ZM-9014 Remote
Controllers, and to Button 8 of the ZM-9013 Remote Controller.
89
[Preset Memory Load]
Calls up Preset Memory.
Set the Preset Memory (1 – 16) to be called up in the ”Preset No.” column of Parameter 1. If the ZM Remote
Controller’s button is pressed, the Preset Memory set in the “Preset Number” column is called up. If different
Preset Memories are assigned to multiple buttons, the last pressed button takes precedence.
[Remote Switched Out]
Controls the M-864D’s contact output terminals.
Set the control output terminal number (1 – 8) to be operated in the “Contact Out No.” column of Parameter 1.
Notes
• If the selected contact output terminal is not assigned the “Remote Switched Out” function, it will not operate.
The contact input terminal of the device to be controlled must also be set to the “Remote Contact Input”
function.
• The control method of the selected contact output terminal differs depending on its “Control” column settings.
Make: The terminal is closed when the button is pressed and opened when the button is released.
Pulse:A shorting pulse is generated between the corresponding terminal and the C terminal with each
depression of the button.
[Remote Command]

102
What is a Preset link setting?
It is possible to interlock the preset memory number change in the system where the M-864D and DP-SP3 units
are used in combination or multiple M-864D units are used.
Within the system, one link source unit is regarded as a master unit, and other units are regarded as slave units.
Perform preset link setting only to every slave unit.
With a setting like this, the Preset memory numbers set to the master and slave units can be simultaneously
switched to the same memory number through the preset memory switching operation at any unit.
Tip: ‌Though the M-864D or DP-SP3 can become a master unit, it is recommended to designate the unit to
which you perform preset memory switching operation most frequently as the master.
Notes
• The maximum number of the master and slave units which can be included in the system is 5 in total.
(Up to 4 DP-SP3 units can be included among them.)
• Never perform Preset link setting to the master unit.
If performed, the system will not operate correctly.
(Setting example: A system consisting of an M-864D and 2 DP-SP3 units)
To switch the preset memory by the M-864D’s front key operation, contact input, ZM remote controller, or
external control protocol, designate the M-864D as the master unit and DP-SP3s as the slave ones.
Figure below shows the settings.

12.2. Example of Change Safe Function Use
12.2.1. Setting example when using the system in a meeting room that can be partitioned or connected.
Suppose that the system is operated by changing the Preset memories for the following 2 patterns.
Using the change safe function permits Room C + D to be used by switching the current Preset memory even
if Rooms A and B are being used as they are.
• Memory 1 (A,B,C, and D : 4-partition use pattern)
• Memory 2 (A,B, and C + D : 3-partition use pattern)
Change safe layer setting : Unset
A
B
C
D
In the morning
Rooms A,B,C, and D
are independently used.
Change safe layer setting : 1 and 2
B
A
C+D
In the afternoon
Rooms A and B are continuously
used while Rooms C and D are
no more used separately but used
as one large room after being
connected together.
The screen below shows an example when the Preset memory for which change safe layer has been set is recalled.
The change safe function enabled parameters are marked with "S."
12.2.2. Settings and Usage
• Assign the input/output parameters and routing to be used in Room A to the Change safe layer 1.
• Assign the input/output parameters and routing to be used in Room B to the Change safe layer 2.
• Memory 1 is set for a pattern where Rooms A, B, C, and D are used independently.
No Change safe layer has been set.
• Memory 2 is set for a pattern where Rooms A and B are used independently and Rooms C and D are used
as one large room after being connected together.
Set the Change safe layers 1 and 2 in advance.
• When switching from Memory 1 to Memory 2, the Change safe function allows the parameters for Rooms A
and B assigned to the Change safe layers 1 and 2 to be retained without being affected by the parameters
preset into Memory 2.
Parameters for the fader and tone that have been changed depending on the talker's voice volume and tone
during operations in Rooms A and B can be used continuously.
108
12.3. Cautions at the time of grouping
Caution should be taken when assigning the Change safe function to the faders, PEQs, and ARC equipped
with grouping function.
If parameters set for the Change Safe and those not are grouped in the same grouping number, both set and
unset parameter values may be different due to the Change Safe function. (Refer to the example as shown
below.)
In such cases, review the settings according to usages, then cancel the grouping or assign the parameters
belonging to the same grouping number to the same Change safe layer.
[Example when grouped faders indicate different values]
