With the microphone preamps including phantom power as an option. Balanced line inputs and a powerful effects section. The mixing consoles in the DMIX Series are equipped for live and studio applications. Owing to state-of-the-art circuitry your DMIX console produces a warm, analogue sound that is unrivalled. The microphone channels feature high-end DMIX Mic Preamps that compare well with costly outboard preamps in terms of sound quality and dynamics and boast the following features. • 130 dB dynamic range for an incredible amount of headroom • Wide bandwidth ranging from below 10 Hz to over 20 KHz for crystal-clear audio reproduction • Low-noise and distortion-free circuitry guarantees natural and transparent signal reproduction • Perfectly matched to every conceivable microphone with up to 60 dB gain and +48 volt phantom power supply The equalisers used for the DMIX Series are based on the legendary circuitry of high-end con soles designed in Britain, which are renowned throughout the world for their warm and musical sound. Even with extreme gain settings these equalisers ensure outstanding audio quality. EFFECTS PROCESSOR (DMIX10FX and DMIX12FX) Additionally, your DMIX mixing console has an effect processor with 24-bit A/D converters includ ed, which give your 100 presets producing reverb, delay and modulation effects plus numerous multi-effects in excellent audio quality 4 Overview: DMIX5: 5 Overview: DMIX6: 6 Overview: DMIX10FX: 7 Overview: DMIX12FX: 8

Identification: 1, MIC Each mono input channel offers a balanced microphone input via the XLR connector and also features switchable +48V phantom power supply for condenser microphones. The DMIX preamps provide undistorted and noise-free gain as is typically known only from large format consoles. 2, LINE IN Each mono input also features a balanced line input on a 6.35mm Jack connector. Unbalanced devices (mono jacks) can also be connected to these inputs. 3, TRIM Use the TRIM control to adjust the input gain. This control should always be turned fully counterclock wise whenever you connect or disconnect a signal source to one of the inputs. The scale has 2 different value range: the first value range (+10 to +60 dB) refers to the MIC input and shows the amplification for the signals fed in there. The second value range (+10 to -40 dB) refers to the line input and shows its sensitivity. 4, EQ All mono input channels include a 3-band equaliser (2-band equaliser DMIX5). All bands provide boost or cut of up to 15 dB. In the central position, the equalizer is inactive. 5, PAN The PAN control determines the position of channel signal within the stereo image. 6, LEVEL The LEVEL control determines the level of the channel signal in the main mix -Attention: Since the FX path for the effect processor is connected post-fader, the LEVEL control has to be turned up in order to get this channels signal to the effects processor! (EXCEPT DMIX5) 7, CLIP The CLIP LED´s of the mono channels illuminate when the input signal is driven too high, which could cause distortion. If this happens, use the TRIM control to reduce the preamp level until the LED does not light anymore. 8, LINE IN Each stereo channel has two balanced line level input on 6.35 mm Jack connectors for left and right channels. If only the connector marked “L”(left) is used, the channel operates in mono. Stereo channels are designed to handle typical line level signals. Both inputs will also accept unbalanced connectors. 9, BAL The Balance control determines the levels of left and right input signals relative to each other before both signal are then routed to the main stereo mix bus. If a channel is operated in mono via the line input, the control has the same function as the PAN control used in the mono channels. 10, LEVEL The LEVEL control determines the level of the channel signal in the main mix. 9 Identification: 11, MAIN OUT The MAIN OUT connectors are unbalanced mono connectors. 12, CD / TAPE INPUT The CD/MP3/TAPE INPUTS are used to bring an external signal source (e.g. CD player, tape deck, etc.) into the console. They can also be used as a standard stereo line input. OUTPUT These Phono connectors are wired parallel with the MAIN OUT. Connect the inputs of a computer sound card o ra recorder here. The output signal level is setup using the highly accurate MAIN MIX fader. 13, PHONES 6.35mm stereo jack for headphones. 14, PHONES LEVEL CONTROL ROOM LEVEL (EXCEPT DMIX5) Use the PHONES / CONTROL ROOM level to adjust the signal level of the PHONES / CONTROL ROOM output 15, MAIN MIX LEVEL Use the MAIN MIX level control to adjust the signal level of the MAIN MIX outputs. 16, PHANTOM POWER Phantom power is required to operate condenser microphones and is activated using the PHANTOM POWER switch. (only available for XLR-Mic input) 17, +48V PHANTOM POWER LED The +48V LED lights up when phantom power is turned on. • Caution! You must never use unbalanced XLR connectors on the MIC input connectors if you want to use the phantom power supply. All connections must be balanced using pins 1-1, 2-2 and 3-3 straight wired. • Please do not connect microphones to the mixer (or the stagebox/wallbox) as long as the phantom power supply in switched on. Connect the microphones before you switch on the power supply. In addition, the monitor/PA loudspeakers should be muted before you activate the phantom power supply. After switching on, wait approx. one minute in order to allow system to stabilise. 18, CD/TAPE TO PHONES CD/TAPE TO CONTROL ROOM (EXCEPT DMIX5) Press the CD/TAPE TO PHONES / CONTROL ROOM switch if you want to monitor the 2-track input via the PHONES OUTPUT and CONTROL ROOM OUTPUT. 19, CD/TAPE TO MIX Press the CD/TAPE TO MIX switch if you want to monitor the 2-track input via the MIX OUTPUT. 10

Identification: 20, POWER LED LED lights up when the Mixer is turned on. 21, SIGNAL AND CLIP LED The 4-segment level indicator displays the signal level. The CLIP LED´s illuminate when the output signal is driven too high, which could cause distortion. If this happens, use the MAIN LEVEL control to reduce the main level until the LED does not light anymore. 22, FX The FX SEND controls of the stereo channels function similar to those of the mono channels. However, since the FX send buses are both mono, a mono sum is a first taken from the stereo input before it is sent to the FX bus. 23, FX SEND CONNECTOR The FX SEND connector outputs the signal you choose from each individual channel using the FX SEND controls. You can connect this to the input of an external effects device order to process the FX bus master signal. Once an effects mix is created, the processed signal can then be routed from the effects devices outputs back into a STEREO LINE INPUT or the STEREO AUX RETURN (only DMIX6). 24, STEREO AUX RETURN (ONLY DMIX6) The STEREO AUX RETURN connectors are used to bring the output of the external effects device (whose input is derived from the aux sends) back into the console. You can instead use these connectors as additional inputs, but any effects device will then have to be brought back into the console via a normal stereo channel. This does, however, give you the ability to use the channel EQ on the effects return signal if you wish. -When you are using a stereo channel as effects return path, the FX control of the relevant channel should generally be turned fully down to avoid undesirable feedback. 25, STEREO AUX RETURN CONTROL (ONLY DMIX6) Use the AUX RETURN control to determine how much of the effects signal is sent to the main mix. If only the left connector is used, the AUX RETURN automatically operates in mono. 26, CONTROL ROOM OUT The unbalanced CTRL ROOM OUT connector carry the summed effects and main mix signals. The PHONE/CONTROL ROOM control adjusts the level of both headphones and CONTROL ROOM OUTPUTS. 27, FX TO CTRL If you want to monitor only the FX send signal in your headphones or monitor speaker(s), press the FX TO CONTROL ROOM switch. 28, LOW CUT In addition, the mono channels are equipped with a steep LOW CUT filter designed to eliminate unwanted low frequency signal components. These can be noise created by hand-held microphones, subsonic noise or plosive sounds created by highly sensitive microphones. 11 Identification: 29, SENSITIVITY +4 / -10 The stereo inputs have an input sensitivity switch which selects between +4 dBu and -10 dBu. At -10 dBu (home-recording level), the input is more sensitive (requires less level to drive it) than at +4 dBu (studio level). 30, FX TO MAIN The FX TO MAIN control feeds the effects signal into the main mix. 31, PROGRAM The PROGRAM control has two functions: by turning the PROGRAM control, you choose the number of an effect. The number of the preset you just chose up blinks in the display. To confirm your selection, press the PROGRAM control and the blinking stops. 32, DISPLAY The display shows the effect program number and contains a signal and clip LED. The SIGNAL LED on the effects module shows the presence of a signal whose level is high enough. This LED should always be on. However, make sure that the CLIP LED lights up only sporadically. If it is on constantly, you are overdriving the effects processor, which leads to unpleasant distortion. If this occurs, turn the FX SEND control down a bit. 12 Rear Panels: DMIX5: DMIX6: DMIX10FX: DMIX12FX: AC POWER IN Connect the power supply to the 3-pin 16.8V AC x 2 connector on the rear of the console. Use the 240V AC adapter supplied to connect the console to the mains. The adapter complies with all appli cable safety standards. • Please use only the power supply unit provided with the console. • Never connect the DMIX console to the power supply unit while the power supply unit is connected to the mains! Always connect the console to the power supply unit, then connect the power supply unit to the mains. 13 Effect Presets: EFFECTS PRESETS No. EFFECT Description No. EFFECT Description HALL 00-09 DELAY 50-59 00 SMALL HALL 1 approx. 1.0s reverb decay 50 SHORT DELAY 1 Like a short shattering 01 SMALL HALL 2 approx. 1.2s reverb decay 51 SHORT DELAY 2 1-2 short impulse(s) 02 SMALL HALL 3 approx. 1.5s reverb decay 52 SHORT DELAY 3 1-2 short impulse(s) 03 MID HALL 1 approx. 1.8s reverb decay 53 MID DELAY 1 Classical Delay for up-temp music (115-125 BPM) 04 MID HALL 2 approx. 2.0s reverb decay 54 MID DELAY 2 Classical Delay for mid-temp music (105-115 BPM) 05 MID HALL 3 approx. 2.5s reverb decay 55 MID DELAY 3 Classical Delay for slow-temp music (95-105 BPM) 06 BIG HALL 1 approx. 2.8s reverb decay 56 LONG DELAY 1 Classical Delay for raggae-temp music (85-95 BPM) 07 BIG HALL 2 approx. 3.2s reverb decay 57 LONG DELAY 2 Classical Delay for dub-temp music (75-85 BPM) 08 BIG HALL 3 approx. 4s reverb decay 58 LONG DELAY 3 Extra long (near infinate) delay effect 09 CHURCH approx. 7s reverb decay 59 LONG ECHO Extra long canyon echo effect ROOM 10-19 CHORUS 60-69 10 SMALL ROOM 1 approx. 0.5s reverb decay 60 SOFT CHORUS 1 Unobtrusive effect 11 SMALL ROOM 2 approx. 0.8s reverb decay 61 SOFT CHORUS 2 Unobtrusive effect with different colour 12 SMALL ROOM 3 approx. 1.0s reverb decay 62 WARM CHORUS 1 Analogue sounding 13 MEDIUM ROOM 1 approx. 1.2s reverb decay 63 WARM CHORUS 2 Analogue sounding with different colour 14 MEDIUM ROOM 2 approx. 1.5s reverb decay 64 PHAT CHORUS 1 Pronounced chorus effect 15 MEDIUM ROOM 3 approx. 1.8s reverb decay 65 PHAT CHORUS 2 Pronounced chorus effect with different colour 16 BIG ROOM 1 approx. 2.0s reverb decay 66 CLASSIC FLANGER Standard flanger effect 17 BIG ROOM 2 approx. 2.2s reverb decay 67 WARM FLANGER More analogue touch 18 BIG ROOM 3 approx. 2.5s reverb decay 68 DEEP FLANGER Deep modulation impression 19 CHAPEL approx. 3s reverb decay 69 HEAVY FLANGER Extremely pronounced effect PLATE 20-29 PHASE / PITCH 70-79 20 SHORT PLATE approx. 1.0s reverb decay 70 CLASSIC PHASER Standard phaser effect 21 MID PLATE approx. 1.5s reverb decay 71 WARM PHASER More analogue touch 22 LONG PLATE approx. 2.2s reverb decay 72 DEEP PHASER Deep modulation impression 23 VOCAL PLATE approx. 1.2s reverb decay 73 HEAVY PHASER Extreme strong effect 24 DRUMS PLATE approx. 1.0s reverb decay 74 PITCH SHIFT DETUNE 2-3 times detune for a wider solo voice sound 25 GOLD PLATE 1 approx. 1.2s reverb decay 75 PITCH SHIFT +3 Minor third added voice 26 GOLD PLATE 2 approx. 2.0s reverb decay 76 PITCH SHIFT +4 Minor third added voice 27 SHORT SPRING approx. 1.0s reverb decay 77 PITCH SHIFT +7 Quint above the added voice 28 MID SPRING approx. 2.0s reverb decay 78 PITCH SHIFT -5 Fourth down added voice 29 LONG SPRING approx. 2.5s reverb decay 79 PITCH SHIFT -12 1 octave down added voice GATED / REVERSE 30-39 MULTI 80-89 30 GATED REV SHORT approx. 0.8s gate time 80 CHORUS + REVERB 1 Soft chorus + medium-short reverb 31 GATED REV MID approx. 1.2s gate time 81 CHORUS + REVERB 2 Deep chorus + medium-long reverb 32 GATED REV LONG approx. 2.0s gate time 82 FLANGER + REVERB 1 Soft flanger + medium-short reverb 33 GATED REV XXL approx. 3.0s gate time 83 FLANGER + REVERB 2 Deep flanger + medium-long reverb 34 GATED REV DRUMS 1 approx. 0.8s gate time 84 PHASER + REVERB 1 Soft phaser + medium-short reverb 35 GATED REV DRUMS 2 approx. 1.2s gate time 85 PHASER + REVERB 2 Deep phaser + medium-long reverb 36 REVERSE SHORT approx. 0.8s gate time 86 PITCH + REVERB 1 Soft voice detuning + medium-short reverb 37 REVERSE MID approx. 1.2s gate time 87 PITCH + REVERB 2 Fourth above interval + medium-long reverb 38 REVERSE LONG approx. 2.0s gate time 88 DELAY + REVERB 1 Short delay + medium-short reverb 39 REVERSE XXL approx. 3.0s gate time 89 DELAY + REVERB 2 Medium-long delay + medium-long reverb EARLY REFLECTIONS 40-49 MULTI 90-99 40 EARLY REFLECTION 1 Short 90 DELAY + GATED REV Short delay + medium-long gated reverb 41 EARLY REFLECTION 2 Medium-short 91 DELAY + REVERSE Medium-short delay + medium long reverse reverb 42 EARLY REFLECTION 3 Medium-long 92 DELAY + CHORUS 1 Short delay + soft chorus 43 EARLY REFLECTION 4 Long 93 DELAY + CHORUS 2 Medium-long delay + deep chorus 44 SHORT AMBIENCE Short 94 DELAY + FLANGER 1 Short delay + soft chorus 45 MID AMBIENCE Medium-short 95 DELAY + FLANGER 2 Medium-long delay + deep chorus 46 LIVE AMBIENCE Medium-Short 96 DELAY + PHASER 1 Short delay + soft phaser 47 BIG AMBIENCE Medium-long 97 DELAY + PHASER 2 Medium-long delay + deep phaser 48 STADIUM Long 98 DELAY + PITCH 1 Short delay + forth down interval 49 GHOST AMBULANCE Extra-long special FX 99 DELAY + PITCH 2 Medium-long delay + minor third above interval 14 Specifications:
