2 – Basic operational concepts : Encoder mappings

Reading the encoder indicators

The encoder indicators change their pattern, depending

on the parameter currently being controlled by

the encoders.

Hard left A little less hard


Note how the slight pan away from center half-lights

the indicator at the end of the circle. This helps to

indicate the fact that the pan position is not centered,

even when the line of sight to the center indicator is

blocked by the encoder knob.

EQ settings When the encoders control the 4band

EQ for the module selected with the SEL key,

each of the four bands may have its gain, frequency

No cut or boost Slight boost (note

lower indicator is

now off)

The F encoders of each band in EQ mode show the

frequency of the band in the following way:

Lowest frequency Middle of the

Pan settings When the encoders control the panning

of the channels/busses associated with the fader

The first encoder in each band is used to control the

gain, the indicators are used as below. “Half-steps”

are indicated by dimmed indicators. Note also the

slight boost and cut settings, which give an indication,

even when the center is hidden by the control
