Lining up the console
This is normally performed by the installation engineer, but periodic adjustment is usually
required to compensate for changes in temperature etc. which can cause calibrations to drift
slightly.
The usual procedure is to
MUTE
all speaker outputs first! High level continuous tone is
unpleasant and can be damaging to both speakers and people alike.
Press
CAL
and calibrate the
Oscillator
, measuring the level at the
Stereo Insert Send
.
Measure each
Master Buss Output
and calibrate using the relevant buss trim.
Finally, calibrate the
Meters
to follow the
Buss
levels.
The calibration interval will vary from installation to installation and should only be
performed by qualified personnel as and when required.
Auxiliary Sen
d
Masters
The eight
Auxiliary
busses across the console each have a master level
control ranging between infinity and
+3dB
with an associated
AFL
switch.
AFL
for
Aux outputs 1,3,5
and
7
appears on the
Left
speaker, with
2,4,6
and
8
on the
Right
speaker.
Aux Blen
d
During normal input channel operation,
Auxes 1-4
are sourced from
the
Mix
path with
Auxes 5-8
sourced from the
Monitor
path. Each
group of auxes can be switched as a block between both paths.
However, there are occasions where you need to send to a common
Aux Output
from
BOTH
channel paths, e.g. to use a reverb when all
console inputs are used for a mixdown, or to monitor overdubs in
multitrack recording situations where one channel controls both live
and off-tape signals and there are no spare channels available.
The
Aux Blend
switches independently link
Aux 1
into
Aux 5
and
Aux 2
into
Aux 6
with all
signals out combined on
Aux Outputs 5&6
.
Note:
When in
Blend
mode
Aux Outputs 1
or
2
are redundant.
