CONTROL SURFACE:
2.1... 8 Channel input faders with 3 pushbuttons with LED:
Selecting the top grey button opens the channel window in the touch screen display. The red LED in
the left top corner of the button will lit indicating the channel displayed in the main screen. A fast
blinking LED indicates an incoming call from a hybrid and a slow blinking LED indicates a hybrid “off
hook” state.
The yellow button is PFL, pre fade listening, the LED indicates an active state. PFL can be mixed or
individual.
Blue button is the ‘START’ button and LED. This function can be activated in the ‘settings’ menu of
each channel. If active the LED will blink fast if pressed indicating a ready status, fader start
command will be fired upon opening of a fader. Or the other way round, the LED will blink fast upon
opening of the fader and the fader start command will become active after pressing the ‘start’ button.
A steady LED indicates the active state of the fader start. If ‘BTN start’ in the settings menu is not
selected the start command is the normal fader start and the LED is steady lit upon opening of the
fader. This LED will blink slowly if an external MUTE signal is applied.
2.2... 3 LED’s next to the fader:
LED A and B indicate the destination of the signal, output A and / or output B and are green when
the fader is closed and turn red upon opening of the fader. In case the fader is overruled by an
external command the LED’s will be red also!
LED “O” indicates and overload of the input electronics.
Main output faders A and B, can be switch off or used for other outputs.
Rotaries for volume control of headphones and monitor loudspeakers.
Headphones connector on front and on the back in parallel.
Rotary / selector for use in conjunction with the touch screen.
Touching a volume bar or settings box the background changes color and you can adjust with the
help of the rotary. Volume bars turn white and a change is momentary executed. The backgrounds
of the setting boxes turn yellow and you can change the setting with the rotary. You have to confirm
the change by pushing on top of the rotary.
The D3 features a color touch screen display. The display is mounted under a clear polycarbonate
layer for a smooth surface and the best possible protection of the screen.

3.1... SYSTEM:
Touching the SYSTEM button opens the main settings menu:
You can touch the value in the boxes to activate them, the background will turn yellow; with the
rotary knob you can change the settings. Please note, these settings need to be confirmed by
pressing op top of the rotary. Currently only one meter type (PPM characteristic) is available so this
setting cannot be changed.
You can assign the output faders as a master to one of the outputs or simply disable the fader. “TB
input ch” is the microphone input that is used for Talk Back purposes e.g. the DJ microphone. The
unit does not have a separate built-in Talk Back microphone but you can select any of the inputs.
You can set the dim level for control room and studio loudspeakers.
3.2... GPIO:
The D3 has 8 opto isolated outputs and 8 opto isolated switching inputs. The GPIO button takes you
into the main screen GPIO menu.
Inputs can be used to remotely load presets just with the help of a contact closure. Redlight
signaling outputs for Studio and CR can be selected to feed a lamp relays system.
Here you can also set the type and shape of the GPIO’s: pulse or continuously, inverted or not….
NOTE THAT AN INVERTED GPI WILL BE ACTIVE WHEN NO CONNECTION IS MADE!! E.g. if
you have assigned a GPI to an input mute that channel will be muted if the switch is not connected!
If set to “EDGE” the GPI signal will toggle the function ’on’ on the first pulse and ‘off’ on the second.

3.3. ..AUX CONFIG:
The master settings for the 4 aux outputs:
Master AUX Configuration menu sets the AUX for ‘Pre’ or ‘Post’. If a Studio monitor check box is
active the Studio monitor DIM function is applied to this AUX upon opening a “Studio Microphone”
fader.
3.4. ..SHUT DOWN:
The unit has a power switch in the back. It is recommended to use this switch to shut off the unit. If
the unit is flush mounted in a table or built in a 19” rack were you cannot reach this switch you can
shut down (sleep mode) the unit in software. By holding down the ‘settings’ rotary for 3 seconds the
unit will power up again.
Please note: From this state the unit will also switch on if the (mains) power was down and on again!
3.5. ..OUTPUT LEVELS: (MAIN SCREEN)
Selecting the OUTPUT LEVELS button in the main screen opens an overview of all output levels.
Touching a bar selects it and allows for level setting with the rotary. Turning the rotary will
immediately change the level, no need to confirm the setting by pushing on the rotary.
In this way you can still set the outputs levels of the main outputs without the faders assigned to
these outputs.
Please note: If a master fader is assigned to an output the level cannot be changed with the rotary.
Headphones and CR monitor rotaries are permanently assigned to these outputs.
NO OUTPUT FROM THE MIXING DESK ?: This screen is the first to look at!
Example: If you switch off a master fader while the fader is in closed position the main level of this
output will also be low. You can turn the volume up as described above.

The bleu PRESETS button in the main screen opens the presets window:
You can store / recall up to 16 presets.
ALL SETTINGS ARE SAVED INCLUDING ALL PARAMETERS FOR EACH INPUT SEPARATLY!
You can set all levels, switches for each INPUT individually e.g. for each AUX 3 x 8 = 24 settings are
saved.
With check boxes you can indicate how the unit starts at power-up.
In the SYSTEM / GPIO menu you can assign a GPI to load up to 2 presets with external contact
closures.
PRESET 1 can only be stored / overwritten with the help of a computer and a small program
connected to the USB bus. In this preset you can store your basic settings in a protected way.
All settings are stored in memory with a battery back-up. This battery will last at least 5 years under
normal conditions. The battery is a widely available type CR2032 or equivalent that is commonly
used in PC’s for the same purpose. A qualified technician can change this (internal) battery.
In the event of a firmware upgrade all settings will be lost including PRESET 1. It is recommended to
write down your basic settings and keep these in a safe place.

CHANNEL SETTINGS:
4.1. ..Input select:
Each input fader has a “pfl” and “select” and “start” button above the fader. Briefly pushing
the grey “select” button opens the channel settings window in the touch screen display:
Touching one of the bars (gain, balance/pan or e.q.) changes the color and with the help of
the rotary
you can make the necessary changes. The e.q. is limited to + and – 12 dB.
The small meters can be used to set the GAIN of an input but be aware: The meter follows
the headphones source so PFL of the channel must be active and in the main headphones
menu “PFL to headphones” box must be checked for a correct reading.
E.Q. and dynamics can be switched on / off in the check-boxes.
The yellow telephone icon is only present when the channel is used as a Telco channel
(hybrid). With this button you can open the “Telco” window to switch the external hybrid
on/off hook and dial a number. The unit has a built-in DTMF generator. (No internal hybrid!)
A normal hybrid is transparent for these DTMF tones.
Pressing the CONFIG button opens the configuration menu for this channel. Settings are
stored individually for each of the 3 inputs of a channel.

4.2... The channel CONFIG button:
Please note: Some settings can only change when fader is closed!
For input 1 – 6 you can select between MIC, LINE A and LINE B. For input 7 and 8 this is AES/EBU,
LINE A and LINE B. The functions of the other boxes are:
With ‘Type’ you will set the logic behavior of the channel:
‘CR microphone’, Monitor speaker will MUTE or DIM upon opening of this channel fader as well as
activate the CR red-light.
‘Studio microphone’, Studio monitor will DIM upon opening of this channel fader as well as activate
the STUDIO red-light.
The amount of DIM can be set in the SYSTEM setting. Also a line input can behave as a
microphone input in case you are using an external microphone processor.
‘Hybrid’ In case you connect a telephone hybrid to this input. It will reveal the yellow telephone icon
in the ‘select’ mode of the channel offering the possibility to switch a hybrid on and off hook as well
as a DTMF keypad to dial a telephone number.
In case you are using another type of communication device or a telephone system that does not
need or support the Telco switching or dialing you can set the channel as ‘Line input”.
‘Config’: Can be ‘stereo’, ‘swapped L+R’, Left to mono, Right to mono, mono to both. Although
displayed this is not active in MIC mode.
‘HPF’ the frequency of the high-pass filter can be set.
‘TB output’, if needed an aux output can be coupled to this input for Talkback purposes. E.g. a feed
to a presenter headphone or TB to a hybrid or other “Outside Source”. If set this will display the
green TalkBack” button in PFL mode. Note: if mixed PFL is used Talkback becomes active for all
channels in PFL mode that have an AUX coupled to them!
Check boxes INV L and INV R: phase reverse function. To reverse the phase of a microphone select
both. Careful: Left or Right phase reversed and input ‘Config’ in mono will cancel the signal!
Only in MIC Mode: 48 V PHANTOM power switch. Although present in each MIC input screen the
48V phantom powering is centrally switched for all microphones inputs!
Check boxes MAIN A and MAIN B: Selects the main output for the channel signal. The
corresponding LED next to the fader will light; green with fader closed and this will turn red upon
opening of the fader. A red LED also indicates if a signal is routed to an output in the event a fader is
externally overruled.
The third LED next to each input fader marked “O” is input overload indication.

4.11. Cleanfeeds, N-1, foldback, outside source return, cough signal:
There is a lot of confusion mainly about the names of the same kind of signals so let’s take a closer
look:
CLEANFEED or N-1 or OUTSIDE SOURCE:
Basically this is the (mono) signal that goes back to a caller into a telephone hybrid. The signal
consists of a mix of all signals in a program MINUS the signal that comes FROM the hybrid INTO
the channel of the mixing desk. This signal from the hybrid back into the mix will cause a feedback
and that is something we do not want. In radio broadcast mixing desks this signal can be a separate
AFTER FADE AUX bus without the incoming signal from the hybrid.
In some analog mixing desks this is not a separate bus but the signal is made from the total sum
and mixing this with a phase reversed version of the unwanted signal. This is OK as long as it is
limited in frequency range so it is mainly used for telephone hybrids.
Also upon switching on the TalkBack the signal is replaced by the microphone signal in order to talk
to the caller off air without the public hearing this conversation. If the damping of the hybrid allows
this can also be done on-air.
In the D3 a dedicated STEREO full bandwidth AUX bus is used for this purpose. Other than only
hybrids also full bandwidth stereo communication devices can be used (ISDN Codec).
With this system you can couple 2 or more D3 mixing desks in separate rooms together without the
danger of feedback.
A special mode is putting the AUX-es in “pre-fader mode”, this allows incoming callers to talk to each
other off-air: CONFERENCE mode. This can be useful when 2 or more reporters are active that
need to know about each others activities. However they should be aware when they are on and offair!
HEADPHONES FOLDBACK:
The signal that is fed to the headphones of a presenter. Basically the total mix of the main signal.
In order to allow the technician behind the mixing desk to talk to the presenter this signal is replaced
by the microphone signal if the TalkBack button is pushed.
With the D3 an AUX bus is used for this purpose and you can even built a dedicated mix e.g. lower
volume of the music contributions. It is not a cleanfeed signal as the presenter headphones need the
own signal present as the presenter needs to hear his/her own voice!
COUGH:
Mute and Remote PFL selected to the same GPI.
The cough signal is engaged with a pushbutton in the studio. Pushing this button switches the
microphone off the main mix and switches on the pfl. In this way the presenter can talk to the
technician off- air. In the D3 you can connect an external switch to one GPI and select both “mute”
and “remote pfl” of the microphone channel to the same GPI. If an external “mute” is applied the
START button LED will blink slowly.

4.12. STUDIO MONITOR FOLDBACK:
The AUX output configuration screen in the main menu.
The signal that is fed to the loudspeakers in the studio room. This signal can be adapted depending
on your way of working. In some radio studio’s (or TV) people don’t use headphones. With an AUX
you can make a mix of all after fade signals EXCEPT the studio microphones. The signal can be
loud if no microphones are in use and dimmed upon opening of one of the studio microphones. The
amount of dimming can be adjusted in the D3. Also this signal is replaced by a TalkBack signal upon
pushing the TB button.
As the D3 mixing desk can be used in a true “split” mode e.g. an automated program is playing on
air and at the same time making a recording you have to be able to select which signals must be
present in the CLEANFEED, FOLDBACK or RETURN. That is why an after fade AUX is used for this
purpose and you have to open up the AUX volume controls of ALL channels that must be present in
this mix and close the others.
D3 System settings Studio and CR LS dim.
4.13. TALKBACK:
Talkback is only possible when a microphone is set to be the TalkBack microphone in the
SYSTEMS menu ‘TB input ch:’ (and this channel is set to MIC input and a microphone is present)
The TALKBACK button is only visible if a channel PFL button is active of a channel that has the ‘TB
aux’ set to a certain AUX output. Touching this green Talkback button it will turn red and the signal
of this AUX is replaced by that of the TalkBack microphone. Active as long as it is pressed.
If ‘mixed pfl’ is set and more than one channel with TB to Aux are in PFL mode than the TalkBack
signal is send to these Aux outputs simultaneously.

4.16. Setting up a HYBRID INTERFACE:
Connect the hybrid to one of the line inputs in this case we will use channel 5 input LINE A. In most
cases a telephone hybrid is mono so connect its output to both inputs and set the ‘config:’ to mono
For this example we are using AUX4 as return to the hybrid so connect the AUX4 output to the input
of the hybrid with both L and R connected.
We will be using GPI 8 for “ring detect” and GPO 8 for “hybrid ON” (modem). Connect the hybrid
accordingly.
Briefly pushing the grey channel 5 “select” button that opens the channel settings window in the
display.
Push the red “config” button on the touch screen that will open the settings window:
Select the input being LINE A, and briefly touch the “Type” box, the background will turn yellow, with
the rotary select “hybrid” and push the rotary button to confirm the selection.
Briefly push the “TB-output” box and with the rotary select “AUX4” being your return or Cleanfeed.
Confirm the selection by pushing the rotary.
Select the “MAIN A” and or the “MAIN B” box depending on the destination of the signal.
EXIT this screen and go to the AUX settings and make sure the level of AUX 4 is completely turned
down to mute.
Of all inputs in all other channels that are part of or will be part of the return signal open AUX4 to the
desired level, in most cases nominal level.
Please note all AUX levels depend on and are stored with the selected INPUT so if you switch inputs
on a channel you have adjust that level also!
Setup your Talkback microphone in the SYSTEMS menu ‘TB input ch:’ as described earlier.

4.17. GPIO
Select the purple GPIO button and set your ‘Ringtone detect’ GPI and ‘Modem on’ both to ‘8’.
Standard for an Eela Audio hybrid the shape and type of the GPIO’s are continuous so do not select
any checkboxes in the main GPIO settings menu (see page 7)
An incoming call is indicated by a fast flashing LED in the grey “select” button. In case this LED is
flashing slowly it indicates an “Off Hook” / ON state of your hybrid.
In “Input select” mode of this channel 5 a yellow box with a telephone is visible. Touching this icon
will open the telephone screen to put the hybrid on and off hook and to dial a telephone number.
Dialing is done with and internal DTM tone generator and most hybrids are transparent for these
tones.
You can connect up to 4 hybrids this way each using another AUX for the return signal. Make sure
the AUX volume of the corresponding input is closed and all others open.
