Chapter 2: Installing XMON
Installing and configuring the XMON EUCON Software application includes the following steps:
• Making audio connections
• Installing the M-Audio MIDI Uno
• Connecting the Control Cable Breakout Adaptor
• Connecting a Talkback microphone
Making Audio Connections
XMON audio connections
Audio connections shown above are examples for Avid ICON work surfaces. Not all connections are supported with the XMON
EUCON Software Application.
Monitoring is based on the XMON analog interface, which is remotely controlled from the XMON EUCON Software Application
and the MC Pro Control Room section. All supported audio inputs and outputs for control room monitoring and studio communication are connected to the XMON interface.
All audio connections are made with standard DB-25 connectors.
XMON provides 18 V phantom power for the external Talkback Mic that connects via the DB-25 connector. The internal Talkback mic requires an external phantom power supply.

Installing the M-Audio MIDI Uno
Windows 7 and Mac OS X
If you are using Windows 7 or Mac OS X, simply plug in your Uno to the computer’s USB port, the proceed to “Connecting the
Control Cable Breakout Adapter” on page 15. Since the M-Audio MIDI Uno is class-compliant, it does not require additional drivers.
Installation for Advanced Windows 7 Users
Windows 7 users who fall into the following categories should install the special M-Audio drivers for optimal performance.
• Use the M-Audio MIDI Uno interface with more than one application at the same time (i.e., multi-client operation)
• Use long SysEx commands
• Use other class-compliant USB audio devices simultaneously
Do not connect the M-Audio MIDI Uno to your computer until the M-Audio driver files have been installed. The following instructions indicate when to connect the interface to your computer.
To install the M-Audio drivers:
1 Insert the MIDISPORT Series disc into your computer’s CD drive.
The interactive installation screen displays automatically. If the installer does not launch automatically, you can manually start
it by clicking on Start > My Computer > MIDISPORT Series.
2 Select MIDISPORT Uno from the drop-down menu and click Install.
3 Follow the driver installer’s onscreen instructions.
4 During installation, you may be notified that the driver being installed has not passed Windows Logo Testing. Click Continue
Anyway to proceed with the installation.
5 Click Finish once the installer has completed the installation.
6 Connect your M-Audio MIDI Uno to an open USB port on your computer.
Windows identifies the interface and asks if you want to search the Internet for a driver.
7 Select No, not this time and press Next.
Windows displays the Found New Hardware Wizard.
8 Choose Install software automatically and click Next.
9 Once the Wizard has completed, click Finish.
When the installation is complete, Windows displays Your new hardware is installed and ready to use.
14 XMON EUCON Software Application User Guide
Connecting the Control Cable Breakout Adapter
The Control Cable Breakout Adapter lets the XMON EUCON Software Application communicate with and control the XMON
hardware.
To connect the Control Cable Breakout Adapter and M-Audio MIDI Uno:
1 Connect the 15-pin end of the Control Cable Breakout Adapter to the Control port on the back panel of the XMON hardware.
2 Connect the M-Audio Uno’s MIDI OUT cable (four feet, attached) to the MIDI IN port on the Control Cable Breakout Adapter.
3 Connect the M-Audio Uno’s MIDI IN cable (four feet, attached) to the MIDI OUT port on the Control Cable Breakout Adapter.
If the devices are more than four feet apart, attach longer MIDI cables to the MIDI In and MIDI Out cables on the M-Audio Uno.
4 Use a 1/4-inch TRS cable (not included) to connect the Headphone Out on the Control Cable Breakout Adapter to the Headphone
jack on the back of the MC Pro (or bottom of the System 5-MC frame).
Connecting a Talkback Microphone
The XMON EUCON Software Application supports both internal and external Talkback mic connections on XMON.
To connect the internal Talkback microphone:
1 Use a mic cable (not included) to connect the internal Talkback Microphone output on the MC Pro or System 5-MC to the input
of a phantom power supply (not included).
Since this connector does not provide the 48 V required to power the console’s microphone, you must use an external phantom power supply.
2 Connect the output of the phantom power supply to the Talkback input on the Control Cable Breakout Adapter.
To connect the external Talkback microphone:

Connect a microphone to the External Talkback Microphone input on the back panel of the XMON hardware.
This connection provides an 18 V power supply for a condenser microphone.
Chapter 2: Installing XMON 15
Installing and Configuring the XMON EUCON Software Application
The XMON EUCON Software Application installer includes Mac and Windows audio drivers that integrate with the applications
you use with XMON.

2 Follow the on-screen instructions.
Mac (left) and Windows (right) installer icons
Selecting a MIDI Port
The XMON EUCON Software Application uses a MIDI port to communicate with the XMON hardware. The Mac and Windows
versions of XMON select this port differently.
Pro Tools users must deselect the MIDI device that XMON uses in Setup>MIDI>Input Devices.
Mac
Right-click the XMON icon in the dock and select a MIDI port from the Select MIDI port menu. If you are using the included M-Audio MIDI Uno device, select USB Uno MIDI Interface. Otherwise, select another MIDI port.

Control Room Levels
The MC Pro main Control Room knob adjusts the playback level for the three Control Room output feeds independently.
To adjust the level of the Main Spkrs (7.1), Alt 1 Spkrs (7.1), or Alt 2 Spkrs (Stereo):
1 Select Main Spkrs, Alt 1 Spkrs, or Alt 2 Spkrs below the MC Pro Control Room knob.
2 Adjust the Control Room knob to the desired playback level for the selected speaker feed.
Pressing the Control Room knobtop cuts (mutes) the selected Speaker feed.
Monitor Levels
The MC Pro Monitor section provides two knobs to adjust the Monitor A–D levels. Pressing the knobtop down cuts (mutes) the
level, and pressing it again restores the previous Monitor level. The up/down arrow buttons to the right of the Monitor knobs toggle
between adjusting Monitor A and B or Monitor C and D. The scribble strips and surface indicate which pair is currently selected.
Dim Level
The MC Pro Control Room DIM key attenuates the output to the Dim level you previously specified. The DIM key toggles on and
off, and is lit when active. The DIM key can exhibit momentary or latch button behavior.
To adjust the Dim level using latch behavior:
1 Press and quickly release the DIM key so it is lit.
2 Adjust the Control Room knob to the desired amount of attenuation.
3 Press and quickly release the DIM key so it is not lit.
To adjust the Dim level using momentary behavior:
1 Press and hold the DIM key down.
The Control Room level dims temporarily.
2 Adjust the Control Room knob to the desired amount of attenuation.
3 Release the DIM key and the Control Room level returns to normal illumination.
