Micro Dark Manual
Adjusts the overall output volume. Experiment with the Gain control to achieve the desired balance.
Set to the minimum position before switching the unit ON.
When using the Phones output, keep the Volume control low to avoid overloading headphones or the input of your mixer/recording console.
Adjusts the tonal response.
Turning clockwise reduces mids and produces brighter tones. Turning fully clockwise ‘scoops’ the mids entirely.
Turning anticlockwise increases the mids and smooths the treble.
Adjusts the gain level. A variety of tones can be achieved, from clean (low setting) to heavy distortion (higher settings) and everywhere in between.
Note: With the Gain set to minimum, no sound will be heard.
Ensure this switch is set to OFF before connecting the included power adapter.
The power light will illuminate when the mains switch is set to ON.
Connect headphones to this 1/4″ jack for silent practice. This can also be used for connecting to a mixer/recording console. The Phones output features CabSim circuitry to recreate the frequency repsonse of a mic’d Orange 4×12 cabinet.
The Phones and Speaker Output can be used simultaneously.
To avoid possible hearing damage, do not use headphones for extended periods at loud volume levels.
Use a quality shielded instrument cable to connect your instrument to the Input jack socket.
Send: Connect the effects Send to the input of effects pedals.
Return: Connect the output of your effects chain to the effects Return jack.
Overdrive, boost and filter effects (wah etc.) are usually best placed between the guitar and the amp Input, rather than in the FX Loop.
Connect to a speaker cabinet rated at 8 or 16 Ohms (minimum 20 Watts power handling).
Always use a dedicated speaker cable (not an instrument cable).
If the Phones jack is not in use, a suitable speaker cabinet must be connected at all times during use.
