We take this opportunity to thank you for buying this product.

We recommend you read the instruction manual before switching on the machine and follow the instructions that are given. Keep the manual for future reference.

SECURITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

ELECTRICAL SECURITY

Check that the current in the mains connection where the machine is to be installed corresponds to the power supply of the machine.

To avoid damaging the equipment, electrical shocks, fire or physical injury when you connect or disconnect the equipment from the power supply, pull the plug firmly out of the mains socket holding the plug, never the cable.

Always do this with dry hands.

Keep the power supply cable far from sources of heat. Do not put heavy objects on top of it or change it.

Clean dust and dirt off the power supply cable regularly.

Do not open the machine; you could get an electric shock.

CAUTION

While installing the machine, make sure it is switched off and unplugged.

Do not open the machine. Touching the internal parts is dangerous and you could receive an electric shock.

The machine must not be splashed or dripped on. Never place recipients with liquid inside on the machine.

Do not place anything inside the machine.

LOCATION

Place the equipment on a horizontal surface with enough space around it to allow ventilation.

Avoid direct sunlight, heat sources and excessive dust.

Do not place the machine near magnetic fields or static electricity.

Do not use surfaces that vibrate or receive impact.

Do not pile machines on top of one another.

VENTILATION

Never block or cover the ventilation slits on the machine.

Do not expose it to direct sunlight or place it near sources of heat.

PERIODS OF INACTIVITY

When the machine is not going to be used for a long period, disconnect it from the mains.

If you are using an adapter, take into account that it will continue using electricity even if the machine is switched off. If it is not going to be used for a long period, disconnect it from the mains.

THE ENVIRONMENT

To save energy, switch the machine off when you are not going to use it for a long time. The machine could contain substances that are harmful to the environment or human health. To minimize the effect of these substances the machine must be correctly managed and recycled when you decide to dispose of it.

When you dispose of it remember: it cannot be thrown into a conventional rubbish bin.

If it contains or uses batteries, these must be disposed of separately.

The machine (without batteries) must be disposed of correctly. Put it in a container specially intended for the collection of electronic and electrical appliances, at the dump or hand it over to the dealer when you purchase similar equipment, so that the dealer can dispose of it corr

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE SYMBOLS ON THE MACHINE*

The symbol formed by the expression “Class 1 laser product” written in a rectangle indicates that visible or invisible laser radiation could be produced. Avoid direct expose to the laser.

The symbol formed by a ray of lightening inside a triangle shows that the machine has connection terminals or a circuit with areas with a current which could cause an electric shock, even in normal working conditions.

The symbol formed by an exclamation mark in a triangle shows that the instruction manual must be referred to for information on how the machine works and its use.

The symbol formed by one square inside another square shows that the machine has double electrical insulation.

The European Community symbol shows that the machine complies with the current

European Union legislation, as well as its transposition to local legislation.

The symbol of a rubbish bin crossed out and over a horizontal line shows that when the product is disposed of it must be done properly, placing it in a special selective electronic and electrical equipment container or through a dealer when purchasing a similar product, at no additional cost. It also shows that the machine was put on the market after 13th

August 2005 (European Community Directive 2012/19/EU of Electrical and Electronic recycling, and its Spanish equivalent R.D.219/2013).

DESCRIPTION

Models SM-3512U and SM-3520U are professional stereo mixers with 12 and 20 channels respectively and they are suitable for live applications, PA for musical groups, boardrooms, schools, churches, etc.

Each input channel has a 3-band equalizer, gain, high pass filter, 2 auxiliary send, balance and output and cue channel allocation. It has +48 V Phantom incorporated in the microphone inputs, selectable. It also includes MP3 player with USB port for USB memory connection and SD/MMC card reader.

Furthermore, it has recording, headphone, monitor, main outputs and an alternative sub-mix output.

CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS

FRONT PANEL

1.MIC : balanced microphone input, XLR connector jack. This connector has selectable +48 V phantom. The pre-amplification circuit provides gain without distortion and with a low level of noise.

2.LINE : balanced line input, 6.3 mm stereo jack connector. Unbalanced signals can also be connected.

3.LOW CUT : pressing this button activates the high pass filter with a steep attenuation slope. The cut off frequency is 75 Hz. This filter is used for reducing electric noise and background noise on stages when microphones are used.

4.GAIN: input gain control. For the microphone input, the input sensitivity can vary between -10 and -60 dB and for the line input between +10 and -40 dB.

5.EQ : tone controls. Equalizer that adjusts the bass, mid and treble level in the corresponding channel. Controls with a gain of ±15 dB:

HIGH : flow pass filter with cut off frequency of 12 kHz.

MID : fband pass filter with central frequency of 2.5 kHz.

LOW : high pass filter with cut off frequency of 80 Hz.

6.AUX: volume control for sending the pre-fader to the AUX bus.

7.EFX: volume control for sending the post-fader to the EFX bus.

8.PAN (BAL): control that adjusts the stereo image for the mono channel or the stereo channel balance in the final mix.

9.MUTE ALT 3-4 : button for selecting between sending the channel output to the bus from the MAIN mix and to the ALT 3-4 sub mix bus. In this case, it mutes the signal in the MAIN bus.

10.CLIP : LED indicator that lights up when the input signal level is too high. In this case, the input level is decreased using the GAIN control until the indicator goes off or only lights up occasionally.

11.- LED indicator that lights up when the PFL control is active.

12.PFL: pre-fade listen. It sends the signal to the PFL bus and lets you activate the monitoring of the channel signal through the STEREO LEVEL DISPLAY level

LED indicator, of the headphone output and the CONTROL ROOM output.

13.FADER : sliding volume control for the output signal from the channel that is sent to the MAIN mix bus or the ALT 3-4 sub mix bus, in accordance with the selection made with the MUTE/ALT 3-4 control.
