Eclair Evil Twin - A little help please...

Anybody have time to take a picture of the front for me?

I need a visual reference.
I have one on loan for a few days, but the face is chewed up.
I could probably start plugging and twisting...
But it would be nice to know what I'm doing.

Here's what I'm dealing with...

We have one of these.

If you are running from this onwards to an Amp - the 'loop' mode it is in now - is perfect.

(if you are keen for a 2nd line level jack output flick the switch away from 'loop' upwards to the "line' position.

If the signal out of the XLR outputs is too hot - engage the -20 db pad switch

There are built in HP filters - right now they are set to 'flat' - if you get a lot of 'string clicking' you could try to engage them to 9khz or 3khz (we rarely use this feature)

Mess with the ground or pin hot switches if you get hum or buzzing - otherwise leave alone.

Main output is the XLR on the back.

We have found setting a conservative level on this unit is wise - rather than have one too high, that can cause an over on the recorder if the player get excited mid take..

Level is set with the central black knob.

Looks good to go!

Hey Jules.

I could be wrong but I think he is looking for a someone to help name some of the buttons and inputs because the face plate is all scratched up?

Maybe you could post a photo of yours for him?

on the left side top is the "output" jack
left side bottom is the "input" jack

to the right of that, the top switch toggles between line and loop, so you can either have the instrument-level input signal routed through the output (to record the DI and still send to an amplifier), or have it brought to a -10dBv unbalanced line level.

and the bottom switch is a 20dB pad ("pad off" when switch points down)

the middle is the gain knob (duh)

to the right of the gain knob
the top switch is a presence peak at 9k (top position), out (middle) or 3k (down)
the bottom switch is a ground lift (down is grounded, up is lifted)

and to the far right, is your XLR line output with polarity switch (for pin 2 or pin 3 hot operation)

It's a DI box! (my all time favorite)

Jules and Dave, thanks for the help. thumbsup

Yeah, I was asking for a picture, but your descriptions, and suggestions are definitely help enough. I can make out some of the print, but I couldn't see which jacks were in/out.

Although the face is beat up, it just came back from being serviced by Bruce. So, it should be up to spec. I can't wait to try it out!

Thanks again guys,
