Controls and Connectors Overview
Controls and Connectors Descriptions
1. Mic Inputs: Balanced XLR inputs featuring high-quality mic preamps. These inputs are wired in parallel with their associated Line Inputs (2), and selected with the channel Mic/Line switches (4). To use the XLR jack as the input source for a channel, the corresponding MIC/LINE switch will need to be in the up position. Phantom power for the mic inputs is activated by the rear-panel switch (35). Line Inputs: Balanced/unbalanced line-level 1/4 analog inputs. Line inputs 1 through 5 are wired in parallel with their associated MIC INPUTS (1), and selected with the channel MIC/LINE switches (4). To use the Line Input jack as the input source for a channel, the corresponding MIC/LINE switch must be in the down position. Line inputs 5 through 8 appear as Left and Right channels of stereo inputs 5/6 and 7/8. Channel Inserts: These four 1/4 TRS jacks allow external signal processors to be inserted into the signal path of input channels 1 through 4. The insert point is immediately after the input gain stage. The digital audio streams from the computer routed to channels 1 through 4 will not pass through the insert jacks. Mic/Line Selector: Channels 1 through 5 each have a dedicated MIC/LINE input switch which selects between the XLR (mic level) input (1) or the 1/4 (line-level) input (2). When the MIC/LINE switch is in the up position, the XLR mic input will be selected. When the MIC/LINE switch is in the down position, the 1/4 line input will be selected. Channel Input Gain: These analog level control knobs determine the input level of the corresponding channels mic (XLR) or line input. The gain stage is after the Mic/Line Selector (4), therefore both the mic and line inputs will be controlled. NOTE : The best signal-to-noise ratios are achieved by maximizing the level of analog inputs at the A/D converters. For best results, levels should be adjusted while paying close attention to not only to your audio softwares meters, but also to the input channels PEAK LEDs (10). 6. Channel Source Buttons: These buttons select the audio source for each channel. When the button is in the up position, the analog input for the channel will be selected (as determined by the channels Mic/Line Selector (4)). When the button is in the down position, the associated digital audio stream from the FireWire input will be selected. 2. 3.
EQ Section: These three knobs control the three bands of EQ on their respective channels. The Low band is a low-shelf starting at 80Hz. The Mid band is a bell-curve centered at 2.5kHz. The Hi band is a high-shelf starting at 12kHz. Each knob has a center detent at 0 (unity) gain. Aux Sends: These two knobs control the Auxiliary buss send level from their respective channels. Aux 1 is labeled Mon and is a pre-fader send to the monitor buss; that is, its level is unaffected by the position of the channels level fader (12). The summed output of all Aux 1 signals is sent to the Aux 1 Send output jack (15), and may be assigned as a headphone source when selected by the Phones Source switch (29). Aux 2 is labeled DFX and is a post-fader send; that is, its level is directly affected by the position of the channels level fader (12). The summed output of all Aux 2 signals is sent to the Aux 2 Send output jack (15), while simultaneously being sent to the input of the NRV10s internal digital effects processor.
Pan/Balance: On mono channels 1 through 4, this control pans the output of the channel between the left and right Main Mix busses. On stereo channels 5/6 and 7/8, this knob acts as a balance control to determine the amount of input signal sent to the left and right Main Mix busses.
10. Peak LED: When a channels input signal exceeds its headroom, the Peak LED will light red. When this happens, lower the input level at the source or lower the Channel Input Gain knob (5) until the Peak LED stays off to avoid distorting the signal. 11. Mute LED: The MUTE LED will light when that channels Mute/Cue button (13) is pressed, thereby muting that channels input signal to the Main Mix buss. All muted channels will be routed to the Cue buss instead.
12. Channel Level Faders: These 45mm faders determine the output level of the respective channel, which is fed to the Main Mix bus or the Cue bus, depending on the position of the Mute/Cue button (13). 13. Mute/Cue buttons: The position of these buttons determine the output destination for the associated channel. When the button is in the up position, the channels output signal is routed to the Main Mix buss. When the button is in the down position, the channels output signal is muted in the Main Mix and routed to the Cue buss instead, which may be monitored in the headphones when selected by the Phones Source switch (29). Stereo Aux Returns: These 1/4 TRS jacks are used for connecting the outputs of external effect processors so they may be blended into your mix. If only the left jack of either Aux Return is connected, the signal will be distributed equally between the left and right busses. The NRV10s internal digital effects unit is internally hard-wired to Stereo Aux Return 2. If an input is connected to the 1/4 jacks for Aux Return 2, the output of the integrated digital effects processor will no longer be audible, and the external effect processor will be heard in its place. 15. Aux Sends: These 1/4 TRS jacks contain the summed output signal from the channel Aux Sends (8). Connect these outputs to the inputs of external effects processors. The input of the NRV10s integrated digital effects processor is internally wired to Aux Send 2. Signal will still be sent to the digital effects unit even if a device is connected to the Aux Send 2 jack. 16. Headphone Output: Connect a pair of stereo headphones to this 1/4 TRS jack. The headphones output source is determined by both the Phones Source switch (29) and the FW 9/10 to Phones control (27), and the overall volume is controlled by the Phones fader (30).
Digital Effects Unit: The NRV10 is equipped with a stereo digital effects processor, with 16 programs and 16 variations per program. The effects processor receives its signal from the Aux 2 DFX sends (8), and its output appears at the stereo Aux 2 returns (14). The effects processor output is also added to the headphone output when the Phones Source switch (29) is set to the Monitor position. 17. DFX Peak LED: This LED will light when the input level to the digital effects processor exceeds its headroom. When this happens, decrease the input level of each individual source with that channels Aux Send 2 control (8).
18. DFX Program Select: This rotary switch selects between the 16 available effects programs in the NRV10s internal digital effects processor. For a list of available effects programs, refer to Section 11. 19. DFX Variations Select: This rotary switch selects between the 16 different variations available for each of the digital signal processors 16 programs. For a list of available effects programs, refer to Section 11.
20. FireWire Indicator LED: This blue LED lights when the FireWire interface is active. 21. Power LED: This LED lights when the NRV10 is powered on.
22. Phantom Power LED: This LED lights to indicate that the Phantom Power switch (35) has been activated, sending power to the XLR Mic inputs (1). 23. Aux Rtn 1: This knob controls the amount of signal fed to the Main Mix from any device connected to Stereo Aux Return 1 (14). 24. Main Mix Level Meters: This meter displays the level of the Main Mix. The red LEDs are clip indicators; if they are lit, lower the output with the Main Mix level faders (32). 25. Aux Rtn 2: This knob controls the amount of signal fed to the Main Mix from the NRV10s internal digital effects processor. If a device is connected to the Stereo Aux Return 2 inputs (14), the signal from the internal digital effects processor is bypassed, and this knob controls the amount of signal fed to the Main Mix from any device connected to Stereo Aux Return 2. 26. Pre-EQ/Post-EQ Button: This button selects the source (pre-EQ or post-EQ) for the channel signals sent to the FireWire output. In the up position, the signal sent to the FireWire output will be taken at the preamp output, bypassing the channel EQ. In the down position, the signal sent to the FireWire output will be taken after it passes through the channel EQ stage.
For more information on pre-EQ and post-EQ routing options, see Section 10, Using the NRV10s FireWire Connection.
27. FW 9/10 to CTRL Room: In addition to the eight output streams routed to the individual mixer channels, the NRV10s FireWire output gives you two additional output streams (streams 9 and 10) which usually contain the main mix output signals from your DAW. These streams are routed straight to the Phones Output (16) and Control Room Outputs (37). The FW 9/10 to CTRL Room knob controls the level of these additional audio streams, which are sent to the Control Room Outputs (37).
28. FW 9/10 to Phones: In a similar fashion to the FW 9/10 to CTRL Room knob (above) the FW 9/10 to Phones knob controls the level of streams 9 and 10 from the NRV10 FireWire audio output, which are sent to the Phones Output (16). This control is functional regardless of the position of the Phones Source selector switch (29).
Phones Source Switch: The NRV10s headphone output (17) can monitor from three different sources in addition to the FW 9/10 to Phones source (above): < < Main Mix Monitors the Main Mix output Cue Monitors the Cue buss output. Signal from any channel with its Mute/Cue button (13) in the down position will be heard in the headphones when the Phones Source switch is in this position. Monitor Monitors the output of the Aux 1 buss, as well as the return of the internal digital effects processor.
30. Phones Level Fader: This fader controls the output level for the headphone output (16). 31. Control Room Level Fader: This fader controls the output level for the Control Room Outputs (37).
32. Main Mix Level Fader: This fader controls the output level of the Main Mix buss, which is sent to the Main Outputs (36). If the Main Mix Level Meters (24) indicate clipping, this fader can be used to lower the Main Mix level to keep the signal from distorting. 33. Power Switch: This switch is used to power the NRV10 off and on. 34. Power Connector: Connect the NRV10s power adapter here. Use only the included power adapter or a suitable replacement provided by M-Audio. 35. Phantom Power Switch: This switch enables 48V phantom power for XLR mic inputs 1 through 5 (1), for connecting condenser and other microphones which require external power. When this switch is on, the Phantom Power LED (22) will light. 36. Main Mix Outputs: The Main Mix output is available on a pair of balanced XLR and 1/4 TRS output connectors. Both sets of connectors carry the same signal. It is recommended that only one set of outputs be connected at a time. 37. Control Room Outputs: This pair of balanced 1/4 TRS connectors receive their signal from the Control Room buss, which carries the Main Mix signal, as well as the signal returning via FireWire and through the FW 9/10 to CTRL Room knob. The output level is controlled by the Control Room Level Fader (31).
38. Main Mix Insert: This pair of balanced 1/4 TRS connectors allows an external signal processor to be inserted into the Main Mix signal path. You can connect a master compressor/limiter, EQ processors or other devices into the Main Mix via these insert points. 39. Kensington Lock Port: This connector is compatible with Kensington security cables to protect your device from theft.
40. FireWire Ports: Connect your computer to the NRV10 using one of these FireWire ports and the included FireWire cable. The FireWire connection provides up to ten simultaneous inputs and outputs of 24-bit/96kHz digital audio. The second FireWire port allows additional equipment, such as an external hard drive, to be connected in a daisychain to the computer. The NRV10 does not operate on power from the FireWire buss the included AC adapter is necessary for operation.

The Hardware page provides access to various hardware and driver settings and information.
Sample Rate Detected This is a display-only value which shows the current incoming sample rate, per settings provided by your host computer and DAW software. ASIO/WDM Buffer Size (Windows only) In this eld, you can select the buffer size you wish to work with. Smaller buffer sizes result in lower latency (the time it takes for your input signal to pass through your audio software and appear at the outputs), but may not function well with slower systems. The default buffer size setting is 256. This setting may adequately serve your purposes, but if you wish, you can experiment with lower settings. If you experience stuttering or crackling in your audio playback, try using a larger buffer size. NOTE : On the Mac, buffer size adjustment is set within your DAW software. Core Audio Device Settings (Mac OS X only) The NRV10 can be supported as two different types of devices under Mac OS X: a single multi-channel device, or a set of multiple stereo pair devices. Checking the show NRV10 stereo pairs as devices box will congure the NRV10 as a set of multiple stereo pair devices. Unchecking this box will congure the NRV10 as a single multi-input device.

Using the Analog Mixer
he NRV10 combines the exibility of a classic analog mixer with the sonic quality of a modern FireWire audio interface, giving you a fully self-contained professional recording and playback solution that sounds great and is easy to use.
Project Studio Recording
The NRV10 is also the ideal project studio interface. Connect a pair of studio monitors (like the M-Audio BX5a) to the NRV10s Control Room outputs, and you can control the playback volume with the Control Room Level fader (31), while the Main Mix level Fader (34) controls the levels sent to the Main Mix Outputs (36). By setting the individual channel outputs in your DAW to M-Audio NRV10 9/10 and therefore routing their summed output signals to NRV10s FW 9/10 to Phones and FW 9/10 to Ctrl Room buss, you will make all of NRV10s mixer input channels available for additional recordings and overdubs. You can use the Aux 1 sends to create a separate monitor mix, and send that monitor mix to the Phones output (16) by selecting Monitor on the Phones Source selector (29). Since the Aux 1 buss is PreFader, you can change the Control Room mix without affecting the Monitor mix, and vice-versa. For overdubs, you also have the option to bring up to eight individual tracks of audio back from your DAW to the NRV10s channels 1 through 8. This can be achieved by selecting the FW (down) position on the NRV10s Channel Source buttons (6) and by setting your DAWs individual channel outputs to the corresponding NRV10 channel numbers. You can also use the NRV10s integrated digital effects processor to add a touch of reverb to your monitor mix. This is particularly useful when recording vocals. To do this, set up your monitor mix as above, except for the channel you wish to record to DAW set that channels Channel Source switch (6) to the Channel (up) position. Then set the Phones Source selector (29) to Monitor and turn the FW 9/10 to Phones control (30) to unity gain (12 oclock). Raise the Aux 1 level on the vocal channel to achieve a good mix with the tracks coming from your DAW. Then raise the Aux 2 level and the selected digital effect will be added to the headphone mix, while the actual vocal will be recorded dry, with no effects.
The NRV10s analog interface is instantly familiar to anyone who has ever used a mixing console, making it easy to record a live jam or performance to your computer. Connect your instruments and microphones to the inputs, connect your PA speakers to the outputs, just as you would for a live performance or rehearsal. For example: Ch 1 kick drum mic Ch 2 snare drum mic Ch 3 vocal mic Ch 4 guitar mic or line out Ch 5 bass direct (ch 5/6 runs mono) Ch 7/8 keyboards Compressor/limiters and other devices can be connected to the channel inserts if desired. The NRV10s internal digital effects processor can be used on any of the input sources, such as reverb on guitar and/or vocal. Once youre set up, you can use the NRV10s FireWire interface to record the mixers outputs directly to your computer. The NRV10 will appear as a 10-input, 10-output device in your DAW application. Audio streams 1 through 8 correspond to mixer channels 1 through 8, while audio streams 9 and 10 reect the Main Mix signal. Using the Pre-EQ/Post-EQ button (28), you can decide if the audio streams are sent to the computer before the EQ section or immediately after the EQ. In our example above, setting up your DAW software to record channels 1 through 5 and channels 7 and 8 would give you individual recordings of each track. You can then edit, sweeten and remix the performance. (If your software can only record two tracks, or if you want a stereo recording, for example as a reference recording, you can set up your DAW to record channels 9 and 10.)
Live Performance Mixing
If youre a DJ or electronic artist, the NRV10 makes a great live performance mixer. For example, you can create a live analog mix of several channels of audio from a computer using Live, Reason or another application. It is also possible to use the NRV10s channel EQs instead of taxing your computers CPU with plug-ins, and connect up to two external effects processors to the NRV10s Aux Returns (14).
Using the Cue Buss
Much like a DJ mixer, you can use the NRV10s Cue buss to cue up tracks or samples prior to adding them to the main mix. Select the Cue position on the Phones Source selector (31), and you can then monitor any channel or combination of channels in headphones by setting the channels Mute/Cue button (13) to Cue (down position).
Note : This method can also be used when using the NRV10 without a host computer.
Tape Return Monitoring Individual Mixer Channels Monitoring the Return Signal from the DAW on its Original Mixer Channels Use this monitoring scheme to build and monitor a mix in your DAW, using its plug-ins processing power. This monitoring setup allows you to hear the input signal after it has been sent to your DAW, including any active FX plug-ins, and returned to the same NRV10 input channel. (Think of this scenario as being analogous to listening to the tape returns in an analog setup.) This is useful for monitoring the tracks in your DAW, including any signal processing plug-ins. The latency inherent in this monitoring setup is dependent on the buffer size selected for recording and playback. Most modern computers can handle smaller buffer settings, resulting in unnoticeably short latency times.
< < < Set the Channel Source switch (6) to FW (down) Set the Mute/Cue switch (13) to disengaged (up) Set the Phones Source switch (29) to Main Mix < < < Set the Pre/Post-EQ switch (26) to Pre-EQ (up) Set your DAW Software Monitoring to On Set your DAW Channel Output to the same as Channel Input (e.g. 3-4 in/ 3-4 out).
Important : When using this monitoring scheme, be careful not to create a feedback loop. When the Channel Source switch (6) is in the FW (down) position, do not move the Pre/post-EQ switch (26) to the Post-EQ (down) position. Doing so will send the post-EQ signal to the DAW, while returning the same signal to the mixer before the EQ, resulting in an audible feedback loop which could potentially damage your hearing as well as your equipment.
Tape Return Monitoring Summed Return Channels
Monitoring the Return Signal from the DAW as a Two-track Mix, Coming Back on FW Input Streams 9 and 10 Use this monitoring scheme to monitor a mix from your DAW while using one or more of the NRV10s analog inputs for overdubbing. This monitoring setup allows you to hear the input signal after it has been sent to your DAW, including any active FX plug-ins, and returned to the NRV10s summed FW inputs 9 and 10. The audio from FW 9 and 10 can be monitored at the Headphone output (16) or Control Room outputs (37), with its return level controlled by the FW 9/10 to Phones (28) or FW 9/10 to Control Room (27) level controls. This is useful when setting up a stereo mix for overdubbing, as it allows you to use FW streams 9 and 10 to return a stereo mix from your DAW, while using the NRV10s input channels 1 through 8 to monitor and record additional tracks. < < Set the Channel Source switch (6) to CH (up) Setting the Mute/Cue switch (13) to disengaged (up) will send that channels audio input to the Main Mix output. Setting it to engaged (down) will mute that channels audio input to the Main Mix output, sending it instead to the Cue buss. (Note that the signal is still sent to the DAW regardless of the position of the Mute/Cue switch.) Set the Phones Source switch (29) to Main Mix Setting the Pre/Post-EQ switch (26) to Pre-EQ will send the NRV10s input signals to the DAW before the channel EQs. Setting it to Post-EQ will send the signals to the DAW after the EQ. Set your DAW Software Monitoring to On Set your DAW channel output to the Mix Outputs (9 and 10)
The FW 9/10 to Phones (28) and FW 9/10 to Control Room (27) level knobs control the level of signal returning from the DAW. Monitoring an Independent Mix Using Aux Send 1 Creating a Separate Headphone Mix Use this monitoring scheme to create an alternate mix, without affecting the main mix. This monitoring setup allows you to build a mix, sent to the headphone output, which is fully independent of the Main mix or Control Room out mix. This separate monitor mix can be useful when recording a vocal or other overdub, allowing you to send a separate mix to the performers headphones without affecting the mix in the studio. Use the Aux 1 sends (8) on channels 1 through 8 to create the desired independent mix, and the Aux 1 return (23) to control the overall mix level. Make sure the Phones Source switch (29) is in the Monitor position. < Set the Channel Source switch (6) to CH (up) if you want to monitor the channels analog input, or to FW (down) if you want to monitor the return from the DAW. Setting the Mute/Cue switch (13) to disengaged (up) will send that channels audio input to the Main Mix output. Setting it to engaged (down) will mute that channels audio input to the Main Mix output, sending it instead to the Cue buss. (Note that the signal is still sent to the DAW regardless of the position of the Mute/Cue switch.)
Set the Phones Source switch (29) to Monitor
Setting the Pre/Post-EQ switch (26) to Pre-EQ will send the NRV10s input signals to the DAW before the channel EQs. Setting it to Post-EQ will send the signals to the DAW after the EQ. Set your DAW Software Monitoring to on if you wish to hear the return of your tracks from your DAW. Set it to off if you want to listen to the channel inputs.
Important: When using this monitoring scheme, be careful not to create a feedback loop. When the Channel Source switch (6) is in the FW (down) position, do not move the Pre/post-EQ switch (26) to the Post-EQ (down) position. Doing so will send the post-EQ signal to the DAW, while returning the same signal to the mixer before the EQ, resulting in an audible feedback loop, which can damage your hearing as well as your equipment.
Returning Tracks from Your DAW After youre done recording, select any of the NRV10s outputs 1 through 8 as they appear in your DAW as the output for each channel you wish to route to the NRV10. Move the Channel Source button (6) to the FW (down) position for the input channel(s) you have routed to.
The Digital Effects Processor
he NRV10 gives you an integrated digital effect processor, offering 16 presets with 16 settings per preset, for a total of 256 possible effects. Use the Aux 2 send control to send input signal to the effects processor. The following programs are available: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
