4 READ THIS BEFORE YOU START! Power requirements Power requirements for electrical equipment differ from area to area. The operating voltage of this machine is preset at the factory according to its intended destination. However, some models are equipped with a voltage selector. If your machine is so equipped, before connecting, check to see that the VOLTAGE SELECTOR on the rear panel is set to the voltage for your area. If not, please set it correctly before plugging in the power cord: 220V, 50 Hz for Europe except UK. 240V, 50 Hz for UK and Australia. 120V, 60 Hz for U.S.A. and Canada. If the VOLTAGE SELECTOR on your machine looks like this: If the VOLTAGE SELECTOR on your MPC60 looks like the diagram on the right, please disconnect the power cord, then set the switch to the correct voltage for your area, using a flat screwdriver. What you should know to protect yourself and the AkaiMPC60: Watch out! You might get an electric shock. • Never touch the power plug with wet hands. • Always pull out the power plug by the plug and never the cord. • Only let a qualified professional repair or reassemble the AkaiMPC60. An unauthorized person might touch the internal parts and receive a serious electric shock. • Never allow a child to put anything, especially metal, into the AkaiMPC60. Let's protect the AkaiMPC60 too. • Use only a household AC power source. Never use a DC power source. • If water is spilled on the AkaiMPC60, disconnect the power and call your dealer. • Make sure that the AkaiMPC60 is well ventilated and away from direct sunlight. • To avoid damage to the internal circuits and the external surface, keep away from heat (stoves, etc.)
5 • Avoid using spray type insecticide near the AkaiMPC60. It can damage the finish and might ignite suddenly. • To avoid damaging the finish, never use denaturated alcohol, paint thinner or other similar chemicals to clean the AkaiMPC60. • Place the AkaiMPC60 on a flat and solid surface.
