MIC 1 INPUT. Connect a 1/4" microphone to this input. This input's audio signal is routed directly to the Program Mix and Cue Mix.
MIC GAIN/EQ. Adjust the gain, the low (bass) frequencies and the high (treble) frequencies of the microphone channel.
MIC ON/OFF. When set to ON, the Mic 1 Input is active, and its audio signal is routed directly to the Program Mix and Cue Mix. When set to OFF, the Mic 1 Input is disabled.
XFADER ASSIGN LEFT: Routes the audio playing on the corresponding channel 1 or 3 to either side of the crossfader (A or B), or bypasses the crossfader and sends the audio directly to the Program Mix (center, THRU).
XFADER CURVE. Adjusts the slope of the crossfader curve. Turn the knob to the left for a smooth fade (mixing) or to the right for a sharp cut (scratching). The center position is a typical setting for club performances.
XFADER ASSIGN RIGHT: Routes the audio playing on the corresponding channel 2 or 4 to either side of the crossfader (A or B), or bypasses the crossfader and sends the audio directly to the Program Mix (center, THRU).
HEADPHONES BLEND: Turn to mix between Cue and Program in the Headphone channel. When all the way to the left, only channels routed to Cue will be heard. When all the way to the right, only the Program mix will be heard.
HEADPHONES SPLIT. When this switch is in the ON position, the headphone audio will be "split" such that all channels sent to Cue are mixed to mono and applied to the left headphone channel and the Program mix is mixed to mono and applied to the right channel. When the switch is in the OFF position, Cue and Program audio will be "blended" together.
HEADPHONES VOLUME. Adjusts the volume level of the headphone output.
HEADPHONES SOCKET. Connect your 1/4" or 1/8" headphones to this output for cueing and mix monitoring.
MIC 2 INPUT. Connect a 1/4" microphone to this input. Microphone controls are located on the top panel on any channel whose Input Selector is set to Mic2
LINE INPUTS. Connect your audio sources to these inputs. Inputs 1 and 2 can accept both line and phono-level signals.
USB. This USB connection sends and receives audio and control information from a connected computer.
Master OUTPUT (XLR): Connect this low-impedance XLR output to a PA system or powered monitors. The level of this output is controlled with the Master knob on the top panel.
Master OUTPUT (RCA): Use standard RCA cables to connect this output to a speaker or amplifier system. The level of this output is controlled by the Master knob on the top panel.
BOOTH OUTPUT (RCA): Use standard RCA cables to connect this output to a booth monitoring system. The level of this output is controlled by the Booth knob on the top panel.
POWER: Use the included power cable to connect NS7III to a power outlet. While the power is switched off, plug the cable into NS7III first, and then plug the cable into a power outlet. Use the Power Switch to turn the NS7III on and off. Turn on NS7III after all input devices have been connected and before you turn on amplifiers. Turn off amplifiers before you turn off NS7III.
