Use shielded audio cables (not supplied) for all input connections. The connected input source’s signals are routed to the corresponding channel on the mixer.

Two stereo inputs

Connect the line level outputs from one device to the mixer’s AUX 1 INPUT R and L jacks. Connect the line level outputs from the second device to the mixer’s AUX 2 INPUT R and L jacks.

Four stereo sources as monaural inputs

Use shielded Y-adapters(not supplied) at each source’s left and right outputs, and connect a separate stereo source to each input jack (AUX 1 R, AUX 1 L, AUX 2 R, or AUX 2 L) on the mixer.

Setting Up Your Mixer

Installing Batteries

1.Remove the battery cover.

2.Insert one 9V battery (not supplied) in the battery compartment matching the polarity symbols (+ and

–)marked on the back of the battery cover.

3.Replace the battery cover.

Replace the battery when BATTERY LOW indicator lights.

Battery Notes

Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly.

Do not burn or bury batteries.

Use only a fresh battery of the required size and recommended type.

If you do not plan to use the mixer for more than a week, remove the battery. It can leak chemicals that can damage electronic parts.

Using AC Power

Connect a 9V AC adapter (not

 

supplied) to the DC 9V jack.

 

Connect the other end to the

 

power source.

DC 9V

 

Notes:

Always connect the AC adapter to the mixer before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the mixer.

Using an adapter that does not meet the specifications could damage the mixer or adapter.

Presetting the Mixer

To prevent accidental audio mixing or channel overdrive, set MONO/STEREO to MONO, set POWER ON/OFF to

OFF, and slide Channel 1–4to 0 (minimum) before you connect to your power supply.

A sudden high output from the mixer could damage audio devices connected to the mixer and could damage your hearing, especially if you use headphones.

Presetting Audio Devices

Make sure you power off the devices before you connect them to the mixer.

To avoid sudden sound outputs from connected audio devices, adjust the volume of the connected audio device to its lowest level.

Connect each monaural device to each input jack (AUX 1 R, AUX 1 L, AUX 2 R, or AUX 2 L) on the mixer.

Two monaural sources as stereo inputs

Use shielded Y-adapters(not supplied) at each source’s monaural outputs, and connect one source to AUX 1 R and L. Connect the other source to AUX 2 R and L.

MIC jacks

Four microphones

Connect up to four microphones to the mixer’s MIC jacks (1–4).Each microphone signal is routed to the mixer’s corresponding channel.

If you connect an audio device and a microphone so they are output to the same channel, the signals from both devices are mixed and controlled by the mixer.

Output

To play the mixer’s output through your speaker system (at parties, dances, conferences, etc.), use an audio patch cord (not supplied) to connect the mixer’s OUTPUT L and R jacks to your receiver or amplifier’s line input jacks.

To record the mixer’s output, use an audio patch cord (not supplied) to connect the mixer’s OUTPUT L and R jacks to your recording device’s line input jacks.

Thank you for purchasing your Stereo 4-ChannelMicrophone Mixer fromRadioShack. It enables you

to mix and add sound from up to four microphones or two audio input sources, such as a CD player, tuner, or cassette player. Please read this user’s guide before installing, setting up and using your new product.

Using Your Mixer

1Set the POWER switch to ON. To avoid popping sounds, always turn on the mixer before you turn on your amplifier.

2.Turn on the output amplifier and set its volume to minimum.

3.Set the audio input source’s volume to minimum. Turn on the source, and set it to play (or continuously talk into the microphone).

4.Adjust the mixer’s corresponding CHANNEL 1, 2, 3, or 4 to level 6-10.When mixing more than one audio input, adjust each input’s volume to about the same listening level.

5.Adjust the output amplifier’s volume as desired.

6.When you are finished mixing, turn off the mixer, the output amplifier, and all audio input sources.

Mixing Mono or Stereo

To mix mono signals with stereo signals, set STEREO/ MONO to STEREO.

When STEREO/MONO is set to MONO:

The mixer routes monaural input signals of devices connected (separately) to the mixer’s AUX 1 L, AUX 1 R, AUX 2 L, AUX 2 R jacks to both outputs.

The mixer changes stereo input signals of devices connected to the mixer’s AUX 1 L/R and AUX 2 L/R jacks to monaural signals.

For mono amplifiers (found in some PA systems), it is best to set MODE STEREO/MONO to MONO.

Voiceovers

Talk into a microphone to mix pre-recordedmusic or sound from an audio input source with your voice.

1.Before talking, adjust CHANNEL (corresponding to the connected audio source) to the desired volume level.

2.As the music plays, talk or sing into the microphone. Adjust the microphone and audio levels so you can hear yourself over the music.

3.If you pause and stop talking or singing, adjust CHANNEL to its original position (step 1).

4.When finished, adjust the microphone’s volume to 0 and the audio source’s CHANNEL to its original position (step 1).
