Tips and tricks
- A coloured arrow means selected and if it is empty it means you are on the edit function
- Use the delay function for larger rooms to create a more coherent sound (can be set in meters, feet or milliseconds)
- If the job has no graphic EQ, the amplifier has a basic 4 band EQ with variable bandwidth
- If you have a front a rear cabled system you can adjust the output level of each amplifier channel separately
- You can keep an eye on all useful information about each channel using the Level sub menu
- There is a frequency generator for a quick check of systems
- The Delay and EQ settings can be linked by the using the LINK A/B settings
- There is a game of pong on there if you get bored.
- Run the subs out on a separate channel from you desk, this way you have more control over the subs
