Controls the volume.
Always set the volume to its minimum level when connecting or disconnecting the cable.
Adjusts the LOW, MID, and HIGH frequency levels.
: Switches the tuner ON/OFF.
Displays tuner information and settings, and A. F. R. functions.
Selects the pickup’s mic simulation type (1: large diaphragm condenser
mic/ 2: small diaphragm condenser mic/ 3: ribbon mic).
Selects the setting for the simulated mic.
FOCUS ( ):
This setting delivers a clear tone appropriate for use when playing with a
WIDE ( ):
This setting delivers broad tone appropriate for solo use.
Rotating to the right delivers more body tone, rotating to the left
produces less. The knob’s central detent position is the standard setting.
Controls the mix level of signals received from the pickup and the
simulated mic. Rotate fully to the left for 100% pickup signal and fully to the right for
100% simulated mic signal.
A.F.R. (Auto Feedback Reduction) Switch:
If you experience problem feedback
while performing, follow the A.F.R. setting instructions below to effectively control the
1. When feedback occurs, press the A.F.R. switch after all sound other than the feedback
* The system may not be able to detect the problem frequency if two or more
sounds are present at the same time.
2. The system automatically detects the frequency causing the feedback and applies a
–12dB notch ﬁlter. The number of notch ﬁlter bands currently applied is shown in the
* If the detected frequency is the same or very close to a frequency that is already
additional 6dB (–12dB
–18dB and –18dB
*If all ve notch lters are in use and another frequency isdetected after the
A.F.R. button is pressed, “

cannot be set.
3. Hold the A.F.R. switch until “ ” appears in the display to cancel all notch ﬁlters. Or,
switch off the power (unplug cable from output jack) to cancel all notch ﬁlters.
