IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
READ BEFORE OPERATING EQUIPMENT
This product was designed and manufactured to meet strict quality
and safety standards. There are, however, some installation and
operation precautions which you should be particularly aware of.
12. Power-Cord Protection-Power supply cords should be
routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or
squashed by items placed upon or against them, paying
particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the
appliance.
1. Read Instructions-All the safety and operating instructions
should be read before the appliance is operated.
2. Retain Instructions-The safety and operating instructions
should be retained for future reference.
3. Heed Warnings-All warnings on the appliance and in the
operating instructions should be adhered to.
13. Protective Attachment Plug-The appliance is equipped
with an attachment plug having overload protection. This
is a safety feature. See Instruction Manual for
replacement or resetting of protective device. If
replacement of the plug is required, be sure the service
technician has used a replacement plug specified by the
original plug.
4. Follow Instructions-All operating and use instructions
should be followed.
5. Cleaning-Unplug this product from the wall outlet before
cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
14. Lightning-For added protection of this product during a
lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused
for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet.
This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning
and power-line surges.
6. Attachments-Do not use attachments not recommended by
the product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.
7. Water and Moisture-Do not use this product near water-for
example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or
laundry tub, in wet basement, or near a swimming pool,
and the like.
15. Overloading-Do not overload wall outlets and extension
cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
16. Object and Liquid Entry-Never push objects of any kind
into this product through openings as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short-out parts that could
result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any
kind on the product.
8. Accessories-Do not place this product on an unstable
surface. The product may fall, causing serious injury to child
or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with
a surface, or table recommended by the manufacturer, or
sold with product. Any mounting of the appliance should
follow the manufacturer's instructions, and should use a
mounting accessory recommended by manufacturer.
17. Servicing-Do not attempt to service product yourself as
opening or removing covers may expose you to
dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to
qualified personnel.
9. Ventilation-Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided
for ventilation ,to ensure reliable operation of the product
and to protect it from overheating, and these
openings must not be blocked or covered. The unit should
never be placed on an uneven surface(eg. bed) during
operation. This product should never be placed near or over
a radiator or heat register. This product should not be placed
in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless
proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer's instructions
have been adhered to.
18. Damage Requiring Service-Unplug this product from the
wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service
personnel under the following conditions:
a. When the power-supply cord or plug is damage.
b. If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the
product.
c. If the product has been exposed to rain or water.
d. If the product does not operate normally by following
the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls
that are covered by the operating instructions as an
improper adjustment of other, controls may result in
damage and will often require extensive work by a
qualified technician to restore the product to its normal
operation.
e. If the product has been dropped or cabinet has been
damaged.
f. When the product exhibits a distinct change in
performance-this indicates need for service.
10. Power sources-This product should be operated only from
the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If
you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home,
consult your appliance dealer or local power company.
11. Grounding or Polarization-This product is equipped with
a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having
one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one way. This is safety feature. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If this should still fail to fit, contact
your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
2
19.Replacement Parts-When replacement parts are required, be
sure the service technician has used replacement parts
specified by the manufacturer or which have the same characteristics as the original parts. Unauthorized substitutions may result in
fire, electric shock or other hazards.
21.Carts and Stands-The appliance should be used only with a
cart stand that is recommended by the manufacturer.
22.An appliance and cart combination should be moved with
care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may
cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.
20.Safety Check-Upon completion of any service or repairs to this
product, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to
determine that the product is in proper operating condition.
FEATURES
● The Vestax original analogue filter can generate hard or warm filter sounds specifically created for DJs.
● The “colour”of the filter sound can be uniquely created by an extremely high quality 5 band graphic EQ
fader with LOW / MID LOW / MID / MID HI / HI controls.
● The active filter changes can be triggered by a trigger switch, an external foot switch or automatically on input signal.
● The parameters of the Auto Wah can be adjusted precisely by the ENVELOPE / LFO / DOWN selector and
the GATE / SPEED CONTROL knobs.
● The unique 1U half-rack size is perfect for many applications. The depth of the DWG-X1 is of similar height
to a turntable, so it can easily be utilized vertically in a quick set up. Vestax offer a 19"rack frame with two
spaces to rack the DWG-X1 alone, or together with other Vestax half rack series effects.
