Basic Controls and What They Do

There are two main types of controls. The first is a potentiometer (knob display) type control. The second type control is the switch type button. Each of the five bands has its own five dedicated controls:

- A large potentiometer knob display control to select frequencies (Hz).
- A large potentiometer knob display control to select levels (dB).
- A smaller potentiometer style control knob display to select Q and filter type.
- A null button that resets the levels in that band to 0dB.
- An In/Out button that turns the EQ in that band on or off (Bypass).

Besides the five controls within each of the five bands, there are also a few global controls:

- An In/Out button that turns all five EQ bands on or off (global bypass).
- A pull-down menu for selecting channels.
- Two toggle buttons that allows for comparing between two different EQ settings (compare).
