IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
CAUTION
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK DO NOT OPEN

WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE AVIS: RISQUE DE CHOC ELECTRIQUE. NE PAS OUVRIR
These symbols are internationally accepted symbols that warn of potential hazards with electrical products. The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within the product's enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons. The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the appliance. 1. Read these instructions. 2. Keep these instructions. 3. Heed all warnings. 4. Follow all instructions. 5. Do not use this apparatus near water. 6. Clean only with a dry cloth. 7. Do not block any of the ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. 8. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat. 9. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet. 10. Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the apparatus. 11. Only use attachments / accessories specified by the manufacturer. 12. Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the apparatus. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over.

13. Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time. 14. Refer all servicing to qualified personnel. Servicing is required when the apparatus is damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate

POWER The power supply should be located as far from the console as the connecting cable will allow. ELECTRIC FIELDS If the console is operated in an electromagnetic field that is amplitude modulated by an audio frequency signal. POSITION The console should be located in a convenient space commensurate with the use to which the console is being put. Degradation of up to 60dB may be experienced under extreme conditions (3V/m. All ground connections should be made as shown on the connections page (over leaf). All connector shells should be of metal construction so that they provide a screen when they are plugged into the console. All testing and servicing should ONLY be carried out by qualified engineers. Many of these points will have been addressed before the console is even unpacked but it is worth repeating them. THE POWER SUPPLY SHOULD NEVER BE OPERATED WITH THE MAINS EARTH DISCONNECTED Please note that the power supply contains LETHAL VOLTAGES greatly in excess of the mains voltage and that its rails can produce extremely large currents which could burn out equipment and wiring if shorted. All connector shells should be of metal construction so that they provide a screen when they are plugged into the console. It should be set for the appropriate line voltage and plugged into the mains outlets using the supplied cables. Ideally a cool area is preferred not in close proximity to power distribution equipment or other potential sources of interference. the signal to noise ratio may be degraded. . AUDIO CONNECTIONS The console should only be operated with high quality screened twisted pair audio cables. Provision should be made for some flat surface surrounding the console to prevent people using it as a table top. INSTALLATION There are a number of points to consider when installing a mixing console.ATTENTION! The following special limitations apply to the console and must be observed in order to maintain safety and electromagnetic compatibility performance: POWER CONNECTION The console should only be operated with the power supply connected to ground via its mains supply connector. CONTROL CONNECTIONS The console should only be operated with high quality screened control cables. 90% modulation). All ground connections should be made as shown on the connections page (over leaf).

SOLO The SOLO switch sends input monitor channel signals to the MON PFL/AFL busses and sends input front of house channel signals to the FOH PFL/AFL stereo busses. When the image control and pan control are both set central the channel will be routed with equal power to all three speakers.

When the image control is fully clockwise the pan control will operate in full left. If the switch is pressed for a short time it will latch on or off. The SOLO ADD mode switch on the master module defeats the auto cancelling and allows multiple channel monitoring.
