Do not plug Mics into the console (or stagebox) while Phantom Power is on. Also mute the monitor
/ Pa system when turning Phantom Power on or off. Allow the system to adjust for a couple of
seconds, before setting the input gains.
Only use system indoor, avoid contact with water or other liquids.
Avoid flames and do not put close to flammable liquids or gases.
Always disconnect power from the mains, when system is not used. Only handle the power-cord
by the plug. Never pull out the plug by tugging the power-cord.
Always operate the unit with the AC ground wire connected to the electrical system ground.
Make sure you don’t use the wrong kind of cables or defective cables.
Make sure that the signals into the mixer are balanced, otherwise hum could be created.
Make sure you use DI boxes to balance unbalanced signals; All incoming signals should be clear.
Make sure that the available voltage is not higher than stated on the rear panel.
Make sure that the power-cord is never crimped or damaged. Check the system and the powercord from time to time.
Please turn off the power switch, when changing the power cord or signal cable, or select the
input mode switch.
Extreme frequency boosts in connection with a high input signal level may lead to overdriving
your equipment. Should this occur, it is necessary to reduce the input signal level by using the
INPUT control.
To emphasize a frequency range, you don’t necessarily have to move its respective control
upward; try lowering surrounding frequency ranges instead. This way, you avoid causing the next
piece of equipment in your sound path to overdrive. You also preserve valuable dynamic reserve
(“headroom”)
Avoid ground loops! Always be sure to connect the power amps and the mixing console to the
same electrical circuit to ensure the same phase!
If system is dropped or struck, disconnect mains power supply immediately. Have a qualified
engineer inspect for safety before operating.

Functions
1. Mic input
Electronically balanced XLR-type inputs for connecting lowimpedance microphones. The input provides extremely low
noise and low hum signal processing. When connecting a
microphone make sure that the pin assignment is correct.
Always make sure to read the manual of the microphone
you want to connect. The XLR-inputs are not suitable for
connecting line level signals like an additional mixing
console, FX-unit, etc. You have to use the LINE-inputs, when
connecting this kind of equipment.
2. Line input (mono channels only)
Electronically balanced inputs for connecting a keyboard,
CD player, mixer, etc. You can connect balanced or
unbalanced signal sources to the Line input. Do not connect
signal devices to a channel’s MIC and LINE input at the
same time. This will cause mutual interference, which results
in level reduction.
3/ 5. Line inputs (stereo channels only)
Unbalanced stereo inputs for connecting a keyboard, CD player, mixer, etc. You can connect
unbalanced signal sources to the Line input. If using a mono device, always connect it to the Left (mono)
input.
Note: When connecting signal sources, please make sure that the corresponding channel faders and the
master faders are at their minimum settings. Otherwise plug-in noise can occur.
6. Insert jack
Insert for external device, effect, compressor etc. The insert jack provides an output of the channels
signal at line-level. At the same time the insert has an input at line level from where the signal is further
routed through the channels equalizer and so forth. When not in use (unplugged), input and output are
connected to provide normal signal flow in that channel
7. Low Cut button
If you push the “Low Cut” button, a filter will be inserted into the audio chain of the GIG-24 that has a
characteristic 75Hz, 18dB/oct high pass characteristic to cut any undesired low frequencies. This function
can be used to suppress hum or to prevent resonances of low frequencies, when the speakers are
placed in close distance.
9
8. Gain control
Input level is determined by the Gain control. With the Gain control you
can adjust the MIC or LINE input-sensitivity, while optimally matching the
incoming signals to the mixer’s internal operation level. The high gain of this
mixer is ideal when dealing with very low input levels (i.e. vocal recordings
or distant sound sources).
How to set the Input level:
1) Set the gain control and the corresponding channel fader to their
minimum setting.
2) Connect the desired sound source (CD player, microphone, etc.) to the
corresponding mic or line input.
3) Play the sound source at its highest volume setting; respectively, sing or
speak as loud as possible directly into the microphone.
4) While doing so, adjust the input level using the gain control, so that
during the loudest passages the Peak LED is just not lit.
This basic channel setting leaves you at least 8dB headroom. This means,
you have at least 8dB before signal clipping. If you want to make further
adjustments to the channel’s EQ setting, you should repeat step 3 and 4
again.
9 /11/13/14. Stereo channel EQ Section (HI/HMID/LMID/LOW)
The mixer’s Equalizer section allows shaping of the incoming audio signal.
All mono input channels are fitted with 3-band EQ. The upper (9) and lower
(14) shelving controls have their frequencies fixed at 12 KHz and 80 Hz
respectively. The lowmid (13) and himid (11) range controls have a
peaking response frequency at respectively 88Hz and 3KHz. All 4 bands
have up to 15 dB cut and boost, with a centre detent for off. Turning the
control to the right amplifies the frequency range, turning to the left
attenuates the signal. Minor changes to the Equalizer control usually
produce the best results. Try to avoid excessive enhancement of the mid
band.
9 /10/12/14. Mono channel EQ Section (HI/MID/FREQ/LOW)
The mixer’s Equalizer section allows shaping of the incoming audio signal.
All mono input channels are fitted with 3-band EQ. The upper (9) and lower
(14) shelving controls have their frequencies fixed at 12 KHz and 100 Hz
respectively. The mid range frequency can be adjusted between 100Hz
and 8KHz using the freq (12) control. The mid level can be adjusted with the
mid (10) level control. All 3 bands have up to 15 dB cut and boost, with a
centre detent for off. Turning the control to the right amplifies the frequency
range, turning to the left attenuates the signal. Minor changes to the
Equalizer control usually produce the best results. Try to avoid excessive
enhancement of the mid band.
15. Channel Aux 1 control
The Aux 1 control allows you to adjust the channel’s level in the Aux 1 bus mix.
16. Channel Aux 2 control
The Aux 2 control allows you to adjust the channel’s level in the Aux 2 bus mix.
17. Channel Aux 3 control
The Aux 3 control allows you to adjust the channel’s level in the Aux 3 bus mix.
18. Channel Aux 4 control
The Aux 4 control allows you to adjust the channel’s level in the Aux 4 bus mix.
10
19. Pan/Panorama control
Mono Channels: By using the panorama control you can change the input
signal’s position within the stereo image. When the panorama control is set
to center position, the audio signal is equal for both the left and right
output.
Stereo channels: By using the balance control you can adjust the balance
between the left and the right channel. If you use a mono source (input
left/ mono) the control works as a panorama control and lets you change
the input signal’s position within the stereo image.
20. Mute buton
This button allows you to mute the corresponding channel.
21. Peak LED
The Peak LED indicates peak levels in a channel’s incoming signal. If the red
Peak LED frequently blinks or constantly lights, the corresponding channel is
likely to enter clipping and you have to reduce the input’s amplification
using the gain control. The Peak LED lights at a level of 8 dB below clipping.
Make sure that the Peak LED lights only briefly during dynamic peaks.
22. Signal LED
The signal LED indicates the presence of an audio signal at the output of
the channel.
23. Channel PFL button
The PFL button is designed to select a channel and listen to that channel
on your control room or phones output, independent of the position of the
channel fader (24).
24. Channel Fader
The fader controls the volume of a single channel. The channel faders
should be positioned within the range of -5dB to 0dB, leaving you with
sufficient room to allow precise matching of differences in the channel’s
level settings. The overall volume is set with the master fader. Even though
the channel faders offer an additional gain of +10dB, it is better not to
exceed the +5dB position.
11
25. Stereo return 1 to aux 1 bus level control
The signal of the Stereo 1 return inputs (68) is summed to a mono
aux signal and is routed to the aux 1 bus. You can adjust the level of
the Stereo 1 return inputs (68) to the (mono) aux 1 bus with this

Set Up and Operation
Before plugging the unit in, always make sure that the power supply matches the product specification
voltage. Do not attempt to operate a 120V specification product on 230V power, or vice versa.
Connection Cables
Take care of your cables, always holding them by the connectors and avoiding knots and twists when
coiling them: This gives the advantage of increasing their life and reliability.
Periodically check your cables. A great number of problems (faulty contacts, ground hum, discharges,
etc.) are caused entirely by using unsuitable or faulty cables.
