In purchasing the BEHRINGER VIRTUALIZER PRO you have acquired an extremely efficient multi-effects processor that offers first class reverberation effects and a number of other algorithms. The DSP2024P has 71 new effects types, and thanks to its logically structured user interface, it can be used easily and intuitively. In order to generate an extremely natural reverberation, we at BEHRINGER have developed new kinds of algorithms for virtual acoustics.These algorithms will help you calculate all room and reverberation parameters with absolutely professional quality and naturalness. In spite of this extensive and calculation-intensive work performed by the 24-bit processor in the DSP2024P, the VIRTUALIZER PRO is very easy to handle. Changing parameters to achieve a specific sound is simple. There are 100 presets available to store your own programs. The DSP2024P includes excellent reverb and delay programs, but thats not all. Besides the classic plate reverb simulations, the VIRTUALIZER PRO will impress you with its excellent modulation effects (like chorus, flanger and phaser), which were extended to include special variations like a musical pitch shifter, a tremolo, and a rotary speaker simulation. The DSP2024Ps dynamic and psycho-acoustic effects allow you to do without a number of additional pieces of equipment. The DSP2024P also offers you a series of distortion and amplification sounds that are combined with a speaker simulation. Thus, as a guitarist in recording situations, you can achieve an excellent sound on tape or hard disk, even without a speaker cabinet. Besides its logical and simple operation, the VIRTUALIZER PROs technical equipment is also impressive. The following points ensure signal processing at a professional level: s Extremely low-noise and exact 24-bit A/D and D/A converters. s A professional sample rate of 46 kHz guarantees a high signal resolution for a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. s The 24-bit processor features dual engine software; these two sections process audio input independently. s As for all BEHRINGER products, the highest quality components and controls are used.
The following instructions will give you a brief run-down on the terminology and functions of the VIRTUALIZER PRO. After reading, please store this manual in a safe place for future reference.

1.1 The concept

BEHRINGER uses an uncompromising selection of components. The heart of the BEHRINGER VIRTUALIZER PRO is a 24-bit DSP, which, due to its exceptional technical specifications, is regarded as one of the finest building blocks. With it come the first class 24-bit A/D-D/A converters, guaranteeing a precise conversion of audio signals. Narrow-range tolerance resistances and capacitors, high-grade switches, and other selected components are all very high in quality. The VIRTUALIZER PRO was manufactured on the basis of SMD technology (Surface Mounted Device). The use of sub-miniature building blocks known from space flights allows not only an extreme packing density but also ensures an increased dependability. The DSP2024P was manufactured under ISO9000 certified management system.

1.2 Before you get started
The VIRTUALIZER PRO was carefully packed in the factory to ensure safe transport. Nevertheless, if the box shows signs of damage, please check the equipment immediately for any signs of external damage.
Damaged units should NEVER be sent directly to us. Please inform the dealer from whom you acquired the unit immediately as well as the transportation company from which you took delivery of the unit. Otherwise, all claims for replacement/repair may be rendered invalid.

+ + + +

To assure optimal protection of your DSP2024P during use or transport, we recommend utilizing a carrying case. Please always use the original packaging to avoid damage due to storage or shipping. Never let unsupervised children play with the DSP2024P or with its packaging. Please dispose of all packaging materials in an environmentally-friendly fashion.
The BEHRINGER VIRTUALIZER PRO requires one standard 19" rack unit of space (1 3/4"). Please leave an additional 4" installation depth to allow connections at the rear side. Make sure that there is adequate ventilation and do not place the VIRTUALIZER PRO on top of an amplifier, which could cause overheating.
Before connecting the VIRTUALIZER PRO to the mains, carefully check that your equipment is set to the correct voltage:
The fuse holder on the female mains connector has 3 triangular markings, with two of these triangles opposing each other. The VIRTUALIZER PRO is set to the operating voltage printed next to these markers and can be set to another voltage by turning the fuse holder by 180. CAUTION: This instruction does not apply to export models exclusively designed, e.g. for 120-V operation! Connection to the mains is made by a mains cable with an IEC receptacle that complies with the required safety regulations.
Please make sure that the unit is grounded at all times. For your own protection, you should never tamper with the grounding of the cable or the unit itself. The unit shall always be connected to a mains socket outlet with a protective earthing connection. Installation and operation of this equipment must be carried out by competent staff only. Both before and after installation, the staff using the equipment should make sure that it is properly grounded since otherwise electrostatic discharge etc. can lead to an impairment of its operation. For more information, see chapter 6 INSTALLATION.
The BEHRINGER VIRTUALIZER PRO is equipped with electronically servo-balanced inputs and outputs. The circuit design features automatic hum suppression for balanced signals and thus ensures trouble-free operation, even at the highest operating levels. Externally induced mains hum, etc. can therefore be effectively suppressed. The automatic servo-function recognizes the presence of unbalanced connectors and adjusts the nominal level internally to avoid level differences between the input and output signals (6-dB correction). The MIDI connectors (IN/OUT/THRU) are standard DIN plug connections. The data communication is isolated from ground by opto-couplers.

Tab. 2.2: Functioning of the delay effects parameters
2.3 Modulation and Pitch Shifter effects
FLANGER: The word flange means tape spool, and this explains the characteristics of the effect. Originally the flanger effect was generated with two tape recorders which ran synchronously. The same audio signal was recorded on both machines. If you put a finger on the left spool of one of the machines, the spool and the playback speed are slowed down. The generated delay results in phase shifting of the signals. Vintage Flanger simulates a guitar flanger effect pedal and Jet Stream Flanger sounds like a classic analog flanger. CHORUS: This effect slightly detunes the original signal. A very pleasant detune effect is created in connection with the pitch variation. The chorus effect is quite often and extensively used for dispersing signals. Analog Chorus simulates a guitar chorus effect pedal, while Vintage Chorus imitates a classic analog studio chorus. Ultra Chorus creates the sound of an eight-person vocal chorus. PHASER: With the phaser, a second, phase shifted signal is added to the original audio signal. The resulting sound is thicker and above all livelier. This effect is often used for guitar sounds and keyboards. In the 70s, it was also extensively used for other instruments like electric pianos. Here, Vintage Phaser represents a guitar phaser effect pedal. Dual Phaser processes the left and the right channels separately. ROTARY: The simulation of a classic effect that is normally generated with a very heavy enclosure with a (slow or fast) rotating speaker: The bass speaker (drum) is covered by a partly opened rotating cap, while both of the high pitch horns (horn), displaced by 180, revolve around the same perpendicular axis. Here, the physical principle of the Doppler effect for modulation of signals is used. PITCH SHIFTER: This effect changes the pitch of the input signal. You can generate musical intervals and harmonies or simply a single voice. Detuning by several semitones upward alienates voices (and is used often in cartoons). Here, you can choose among a stereo, two, and three vocal pitch shifter. At the left stop of Edit C the pitch shifters 1 and 2 are synchronized to a stereo pitch shifter. Pitch shifter 3 can be switched off by turning Edit E fully counterclockwise. VIBRATO: For this effect, the peak frequency of a tone is periodically and uniformly changed (quickly or slowly). It is often used for guitar playing. TREMOLO: This effect was originally found on guitar amplifiers, and is once again trendy. It is a fast or slow periodic variation of the volume.

VIRTUALIZER PRO DSP2024P AUTO PANNING: This sound effect, which was very popular in the beginnings of stereo technique, is achieved by allowing a sound source (often the lead guitar or a synthesizer) to wander from one end of the stereo image to another or by just letting it wander repeatedly.
Tab. 2.3: Functioning of the modulation and pitch shifter effects parameters

2.4 Dynamic effects

COMPRESSOR/LIMITER: When the signal level exceeds the level control limit of the signal-processing unit, it must be limited dynamically to avoid distortions. This is achieved by installing a compressor or a limiter. The limiter abruptly limits the signal above a specified threshold, while a compressor acts softly over a large range. EXPANDER: Background noises of all types (noise, humming etc) limit the dynamic range of the actual signal. As long as the level of the actual signal lies significantly above the background noise, the noise is inaudible. The interference signal in this case is masked by the actual signal. The expander is used to effectively expand the dynamic range of signals. Signals with small amplitudes (such as background noise) can be weakened, thereby reducing the background noise. GATE: On stage and in studios, there are diverse applications where a noise gate is needed. For example, microphones that tend to cause feedback can be defused. In addition, you can use a gate to eliminate unwanted noise. When used on vocals, for example, the signal is simply masked during pauses, thus eliminating all noise. Needless to say, a gate used on vocals has to open very quicklyotherwise, the first syllables of soft or whispered passages would not be audible.
VIRTUALIZER PRO DSP2024P ULTRAMIZER: The ultramizer function divides the sound spectrum into two frequency bands and, as a result, allows inaudible but extremely effective compression. This is especially helpful during mix-down. The DSP2024P analyses the received audio material and automatically adjusts input gain and compression parameters. DENOISER: The DENOISER is used to eliminate or reduce noise and other interference. DE-ESSER: A problem often encountered in recording situations, is the sibilant (Ssss) sound of the human voice. The de-esser is used to remove strong hissing sounds from the audio signal. WAVE DESIGNER: Using this effect, you can influence the envelope of a signal by specifying its volume. A (= Attack) indicates the time a tone needs to reach its full volume. R (= Release) determines how long it takes before a tone dies away.
Tab. 2.4: Functioning of the dynamic effects parameters
2.5 Psycho-acoustic effects
EXCITER: An exciter works with psycho-acoustic principles to add artificially generated overtones to the original signal, thereby increasing its presence and loudness (the subjective volume impression) without any significant increase of the signal level. ENHANCER: The enhancer works like a dynamic pitch equalizer. Its effectiveness depends on the associated high frequencies and the intensity of the input signal. 14 2. EFFECTS ALGORITHMS

Tab. 2.9: Parameter functions of multi-effects programs
For an overview of the parameters available in the individual programs refer to chapter 7.1.


3.1 Effects structure
Fig. 3.1: Effects structure, part 3. OPERATION
Fig. 3.2: Effects structure, part 2
Fig. 3.3: Effects structure, part 3

3.2 Calling up presets

The VIRTUALIZER PRO has 100 internal presets and 100 user presets that can be overwritten. The two memory banks are located one after another. The internal presets (I.000 - I.100) come first and the user presets (U.000 - U.100) follow. After switching on the unit, the last used preset is automatically restored. To choose a different preset, press the PRESET key, then rotate the JOG WHEEL. To see the presets in ascending order, rotate the wheel clockwise. To see the presets in descending order, rotate it counterclockwise.
Please note that it takes the VIRTUALIZER PRO about one second to activate each newly selected preset. The activation process is indicated by a blinking light on the display. After the new effects data is loaded, the VIRTUALIZER PRO activates the preset and the light fades. This brief signal suppression means that during quick selection of presets with the JOG WHEEL, not every preset is activated directly. Otherwise, there could be partial shreds of various presets at the audio outputs of the DSP2024P. The VIRTUALIZER PRO gives you the security that unwanted programs are not loaded. In addition, you can quickly turn the JOG WHEEL and still have enough time to specifically select a preset without activating neighboring programs. Please note that various effects algorithms may have different volume levels. Reduce the volume of your monitors while selecting new presets to prevent sudden changes in volume.
3.3 Editing programs (edit mode)
Programs can be edited easily and quickly with the DSP2024P. The list on the right side of the LED DISPLAY gives you an overview of the effects algorithms that the VIRTUALIZER PRO can generate. To select these basic algorithms, press the EFFECT key and rotate the JOG WHEEL. By turning the EDIT CONTROLs and the MIX/BYPASS CONTROL, you can extensively modify the sound of an effects program. You select the EDIT CONTROL function using the EDIT key. By repeatedly pressing the EDIT key, you can (for example) specify whether parameter EDIT A or EDIT E will be changed with the 1st EDIT CONTROL.The currently illuminated LED indicates which parameters will be edited. By modifying the EQ LO and EQ HI parameters, you can put the final touch on an effect. As soon as you start editing, the LED of the PRESET or EFFECT key (depending on whether you have already loaded one of the 200 presets or have selected one of the basic algorithms) dies out. Simultaneously, the LED of the STORE key starts to blink, indicating that changes have been made.

Tab. 3.1: Controller settings For controller functions see table 7.4 in chapter 7 APPENDIX. s PRGM: Page four will bring you to the setup for the program changes. Once again, you have four modes to select from:
Tab. 3.2: Program change settings
VIRTUALIZER PRO DSP2024P s STOR: On the fifth page, you can select the Store Enable mode. In the ON mode, the VIRTUALIZER PRO receives controller 112 as the direct storage commandthe current settings are stored on the program location corresponding to the controller value without waiting for a confirmation. In the OFF mode, controller 112 is ignored.
CAUTION: The Store Enable mode is aimed to transfer several presets at once from an external PC to the VIRTUALIZER PRO (see also chapter 5.1). In this mode, you can very easily overwrite your program locations by unintentionally sending controller 112 values to the DSP2024P! Therefore, we strongly recommend to switch off this mode immediately after use. When the DSP2024P is switched on, this mode is automatically set to off (OFF).
s DUMP: Select the System Exclusive mode (SysEx) using the sixth page. In this mode, the DSP2024P is ready to dump its complete storage content, including all settings, to a MIDI sequencer. Start your MIDI sequencer and turn the JOG WHEEL. The data transfer is indicated by GO. s DR.EN: In this mode, the DSP2024P can receive SysEx data from another MIDI device. To load this data, turn the JOG WHEEL slightly so that the DISPLAY blinks. Start your sequencer, and all of your settings, including preset parameter settings, are received by your VIRTUALIZER PRO. Data transfer is interrupted by turning the JOG WHEEL slightly so that ---- appears in the DISPLAY.
During a SysEx data transfer, all audio functions of the VIRTUALIZER PRO are inactive.
3.6.2 INPUT mode With the help of the 2nd EDIT CONTROL, you can specify whether your DSP2024P works as a mono (MONO) or a stereo unit (STER). In mono mode, input 1 is used exclusively. Since the VIRTUALIZER PRO is a real True Stereo device, the DSP processes the signal for many effects separately for both channels (see chapter 7.1). For effects 13 - 15 and 38, right and left channel parameters can even be edited separately.
For effects 42 - 44, 58, and 59, a signal must be present at both inputs for optimal stereo results.
3.6.3 OUTPUT mode Use the 3rd EDIT CONTROL to determine the DSP2024Ps OUTPUT mode. The selection of settings depends on your DSP2024Ps application. If youre using the VIRTUALIZER PRO in connection with a mixing console (aux bus), activate the Mix External (EXTN) output mode. The DSP2024Ps output signal is then 100% wet. If youre using the DSP2024P with a guitar amplifier that has an effects loop, select the Mix Internal (INTN) output mode. Then, use the MIX/BYPASS CONTROL to adjust the effect volume. For further information, see chapters 4.2 and 4.4. 3.6.4 Dual engine configuration (CONFIG) You can use the 4th EDIT CONTROL to decide how the DSP2024Ps effects combinations (presets 61 - 71) should be structured. Since the DSP2024P is a true Dual Engine unit, you can choose between serial 1 (SER1), serial 2 (SER2) and parallel (PARA). See fig. 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3 to understand how these settings influence the composition of the effects combinations. In the example of preset 61 (chorus & reverb), you can decide, whether the chorus and reverb effects run separately from each other or whether the signal, treated by the chorus, passes the reverb effect.

3.7 Restoring the factory presets
To restore the DSP2024P to its preset factory state, press and hold the STORE and PRESET keys while switching on the unit. INIT appears in the DISPLAY and counting takes place from R 1 to R 100.
This overwrites all changes you have made and restores the factory presets!


The BEHRINGER VIRTUALIZER PRO is a flexible unit that can be used in various applications. Prior to a presentation of the DSP2024Ps many uses, please note the following remarks on how to set signal levels correctly.

4.1 Level setting

Take care to set all levels properly on the DSP2024P! Low levels deteriorate the dynamics of the music signal, which results in a poor, weak and noisy sound. On the other hand, excess levels overdriving the converters in the VIRTUALIZERPRO should also be avoided. Digital distortion is (unlike its analog counterpart) extremely unpleasant, since it does not occur gradually but abruptly. Please use the OPERATING LEVEL switch and the input level meter of the DSP2024P. Make sure that the Clip LEDs flickers only rarely. Ensure that they never light up all the time!
4.2 Using the VIRTUALIZERPRO in the aux bus
Using the DSP2024P in the aux bus lets you feed signals from one, several or all channels of your console into the VIRTUALIZER PRO. When miking a drum kit, for example, you can use the aux controls to adjust the reverberation independently for each channel. Thus, you are able to assign a strong reverb to the snare rather than the toms. Cabling the VIRTUALIZER PRO in the aux bus should be carried out as follows:
Fig. 4.1: Wiring aux busses Connect both inputs of the VIRTUALIZER PRO to the aux send outputs of your mixer. The DSP2024Ps output socket is connected to the aux return inputs of your mixer. If you want to operate the BEHRINGER VIRTUALIZER PRO in mono, connect one of its channels (left or right) to an aux bus. As a matter of principle, effects processors should always be connected to post fader aux busses.
If your mixing console has aux busses that feature one jack for the aux send, use audio channel 1 on the DSP2024P. In this case, you must choose the mono mode (see chapter 3.6.2). To avoid damage to your equipment, turn down the volume level on your amplifier when making connections. Switch off the devices that you want to connect to one another until plug connections have been completed as described.

5.1 Saving data via MIDI

To store all presets outside the VIRTUALIZER PRO, you can use a special form of MIDI communication called system exclusive data (SysEx). With SysEx, the VIRTUALIZER PRO sends information about its manufacturer, unit type, and all parameter settings for all presets to a sequencer or MIDI file recorder. To 5. MIDI FUNCTIONS OF THE DSP2024P 29
VIRTUALIZER PRO DSP2024P activate this very practical function, press the SETUP key in SETUP mode. Turn the 1st EDIT CONTROL to select DUMP. Your VIRTUALIZER PRO is now ready to transfer your system exclusive data. Select a track on your MIDI sequencer, get ready for recording, start the recording and turn the JOG WHEEL. The data transfer is indicated by a GO in the DISPLAY. To load the data back into the DSP2024P, select DR.EN in SETUP mode (see chapter 3.6.1). Turn the JOG WHEEL until DR.EN blinks. Now, start your MIDI sequencer and the preset data is automatically transferred to the DSP2024P. In this mode, information sent from the MIDI sequencer is automatically stored while receiving, without asking for confirmation.


6.1 Mains connection
Before connecting the VIRTUALIZER PRO to the mains, please carefully check that your equipment is set to the correct voltage! The fuse holder on the mains socket has 3 triangular markings. Two of these triangles are located opposite each other. The VIRTUALIZER PRO is set at the operating voltage indicated beside the markings and can be changed by turning the fuse holder by 180. CAUTION: This is not applicable for export models, which were designed only for a mains voltage of 120 V! Connection to the mains is made by means of a mains cable with an IEC receptacle which complies with the required safety regulations.
Please note that all pieces of equipment must be grounded. For your own safety, under no circumstances should you remove or deactivate the grounding of the equipment or the mains cable.

6.2 Audio connections

As standard, the BEHRINGER VIRTUALIZERPRO features electronically servo-balanced inputs and outputs. If possible, connect the unit to other devices in a balanced configuration to allow for maximum interference immunity.
Installation and operation of this equipment must be carried out by competent staff only. Both before and after installation, the staff using the equipment should make sure that it is properly grounded since otherwise electrostatic discharge etc. can lead to an impairment of its operation.
Fig. 6.1: Different plug types

6.3 MIDI connections

The MIDI connectors at the rear panel of the unit are equipped with internationally standardized 5 pin DIN sockets. Youll need a MIDI cable to connect the VIRTUALIZER PRO with other MIDI devices. As a rule, standard ready-to-use cables can be used. With a two core shielded cable (e.g. microphone cable) and two possible stable 180 deg. DIN plugs, you can also solder a MIDI cable yourself: Pin 2 (middle) = shield, pin 4 and 5 (right and left of pin 2) = Inner conductor, Pin 1 and 3 (both lying outside) remain free. MIDI cables should not be longer than 15 meters. MIDI IN: is used for receiving MIDI data. The receiving channel is selected in the SETUP menu. MIDI THRU: At the MIDI THRU socket, the MIDI data that arrive at the MIDI IN socket can be looped through. Several VIRTUALIZER PROs can be linked using MIDI THRU sockets. MIDI OUT: Via MIDI OUT, you can send data to a connected computer or to other VIRTUALIZER PROs. Program data and status information are transmitted for signal processing.

6.4 Selecting the operating level
The BEHRINGER VIRTUALIZER PRO allows you to switch the internal operating level with the OPERATING LEVEL switches on the rear panel of the unit. Thus, you can choose between the homerecording level (-10 dBV) and the professional studio level (+4 dBu). With this adjustment, the VIRTUALIZER PRO is adapted to the optimal operating level. Use the input level meter on the front panel to find the appropriate operating level. 6. INSTALLATION 31
