Mains electricity is dangerous and can kill. Mains voltage is present within the power supply unit provided with the console. Do not remove the power unit cover with mains connected. The correct mains voltage setting is indicated on the rear of the power unit. Check your mains wiring and earthing before switching on.
The console chassis is connected to mains earth to ensure your safety. Audio 0V connects to the console chassis internally. Should problems be encountered with ground loops operate the audio ground lift switches on connected equipment accordingly or disconnect the cable screens at one end. Refer to the section on 'EARTHING' later in this User Guide.


l l AC POWER: Check the power unit for correct AC mains voltage setting before switching on. Allow adequate space around the unit for ventilation.
CONNECTIONS: Use audio connectors and cables only for their intended purpose. Do not connect any source of AC or DC power to the console audio connectors. Do not connect the output of power amplifiers directly to the console. CLEANING: Avoid the use of chemicals, abrasives and solvents. The control panel is best cleaned with a soft brush and lint-free cloth. To remove stubborn marks (such as chinagraph pencil) isopropyl alcohol may be used.
LUBRICATION: The faders, switches and potentiometers are lubricated for life. The use of electrical lubricants on these parts is not recommended. DIRT, DUST, SMOKE and MOISTURE: Prevent damage to the moving parts, such as faders and potentiometers, and cosmetics by avoiding drinks spill age, tobacco ash and smoke, and exposure to rain and condensation. Protect from excessive dirt, dust, heat and vibration.

Refer to the SAFETY WARNING on the first page of this User Guide.
The RPS9 Power supply is provided with the GL3300 to convert the AC mains voltage to the regulated positive and negative DC voltages required to power the console. It also supplies the +48V DC phantom power voltage for use with certain microphones. It connects to the console by means of a 2.5 metre DC power cable fitted with a locking 5 pin XLR plug. Mains input to the RPS9 is via a mains cable with moulded plug suitable for the local supply. A standard 3 pin IEC connector plugs into the RPS9 mains in socket with integral voltage selector and AC mains fuse. The RPS9 may be operated free standing or 19" rack mounted (2U height) up to 2 metres away from the console. As with any power supply unit it is recommended that it is positioned away from the console or other signal processing equipment containing sensitive low level audio signals to avoid any possible hum pickup. Check that the voltage indicated in the fuseholder window is the same as the mains supply in your area. AC mains supply = 100 to 110 V.AC AC mains supply = 110 to 125 V.AC AC mains supply = 210 to 230 V.AC AC mains supply = 235 to 260 V.AC T 3.15A T 3.15A T 1A T 1A 20mm fuse 20mm fuse 20mm fuse 20mm fuse
To avoid the risk of fire replace the fuse only with the correct type and value as specified on the unit.
It is normal for the power unit to dissipate heat. Ensure adequate ventilation around the unit. Do not cover the unit or position it on soft furnishings during operation. Do not position other equipment known to generate significant amounts of heat below the unit. It is recommended that rack units containing high power amplifiers and other heat dissipating equipment are fitted with cooling fans.
Always switch the power unit off before connecting or disconnecting the console power cable.
This unit contains no user serviceable parts. Do not remove the cover. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel only. Note: The RPS9 is fitted with a rear panel ground lift switch. This is for use when the unit powers certain other Allen & Heath equipment. This switch is not operative on the GL3300 range. Refer to the section on 'EARTHING THE AUDIO SYSTEM'. The RPS9 power supply unit conforms to safety standard

EN 60065

The console chassis is connected to mains earth via the DC power cable. Audio 0V is connected to the chassis and therefore mains earth. In this way all signal returns and connector shields are connected to mains earth at the console. To ensure operator safety do not remove the earth connection from the power supply mains plug. For best performance it is important that the earth system is solid, clean and noise-free. To prevent mains born and external interference pickup from lighting equipment, motors and other mains powered equipment it is recommended that a separate 'clean' mains distribution outlet is used for the audio system. All signal cables should have their screens connected to earth at the connector. If earth (ground) loop problems result in audible hum or buzz then disconnect the cable screen connection at one end, usually the destination end. This may be done within the cable plug or by operating the 'ground lift' switch if available on the connected equipment. Many DI boxes and power amplifiers include this facility.


Where possible use balanced connections to prevent noise and interference pickup especially on long microphone cable runs. Avoid running audio cables next to mains, computer or lighting cables, or near thyristor dimmer units, power supplies etc. The use of low impedance sources such as good quality microphones of 200 ohms or less significantly reduces interference pickup. Many problems can be avoided by taking time to check that all cables are correctly wired (in-phase) with professional quality cable and carefully soldered joints. The following wiring convention is used: XLR pin 1 = 0V earth shield pin 2 = hot (+ve - in phase signal) pin 3 = cold (-ve - out of phase signal) 1/4" jack tip ring = hot / +ve/signal / left / send = cold /-ve/ 0V / right/ return

sleeve = 0V earth shield

To connect an unbalanced source to a balanced console input, link the cold input (XLR pin 3 or jack ring) to 0V earth (pin 1 or jack sleeve) at the console. To connect a balanced console output to an unbalanced destination link the cold output to 0V earth at the console.
Switch off the input channel +48V when using non-phantom powered, line or unbalanced sources.


For best performance it is important that the connected source signals are matched to the "normal operating level" of the console. Similarly the console outputs should be correctly matched to the operating levels of the connected amplifiers and destination equipment. If too high the signal peaks will be clipped resulting in a harsh distorted sound, and if too low the signal-to-noise ratio is reduced resulting in excessive background hiss. For best results operate the console with the meters averaging '0' or just below and allowing the loudest passages and occassional peaks into the 'yellow'. Reduce the gain if the peak indicators flash (red). The GL3300 produces a standard XLR output level of +4dBu for a meter reading of 0VU. It is advisable to adjust the power amplifier input gain or fit an attenuator pad if normal console operation results in an output level too high for the connected amplifier. Normal operation should result in fader levels around the '0' mark. The GL3300 has an advanced PFL (pre-fade listen) / AFL (after-fader listen) and channel metering system to let you listen to and check the level of signals at different points in the signal path without affecting the main outputs. Use the channel PFL switches to set up the input GAIN controls to read an average '0' (yellow LED). Signal activity is always shown on the channel meters regardless of fader mute switch position. The green 'SIG' LED lights at -20dBu to indicate signal presence, the green '0' LED indicates normal level, and the red 'PEAK' LED warns of potential overload 5dB before clipping.

There are a range of options and accessories available for the GL3300 range. All are supplied complete with fixings and installation and operating instructions. Contact your nearest Allen & Heath dealer if you wish to purchase an option or accessory.

For line sources on XLR simply plug into the XLR with the jack socket unplugged. Plug in a microphone or line level source. Use balanced cables where possible to prevent interference pickup on long cable runs. Unbalanced sources may be connected by linking signal cold to ground (XLR pin 3 to pin 1, jack ring to sleeve) at the connector. For line sources on XLR simply plug into the XLR with the jack socket unplugged.


Use the PFL system to listen to the signal and fine tune the gain setting.
Switch off channel +48V when the inputs are connected to nonphantom powered, line or unbalanced sources.
For balanced microphones which require phantom power select +48V. If required this switch may be disabled by an internal link.
PHASE reverses the phase of the input source to correct the phase differences often encountered in microphone placement, or due to incorrectly wired cables (pin 3 hot instead of pin 2). May also be used to minimise acoustic feedback between closely positioned loudspeakers and mics in live sound mixing. The stereo L reverses the left input phase only to correct for differences between left and right signals, or for MS microphone techniques.
MIC/LINE selects line sensitivity on the jack input when pressed. Or becomes a 20dB pad for the XLR input when no jack is plugged in. GAIN matches the level of the input source to the normal operating level of the console. Adjust this to read an average '0dB' on the channel meter (yellow LED). Use the PFL system to listen to the signal and fine tune the gain.
Separate GAIN controls for L and R inputs let you adjust the balance between the sources, or treat each as a separate source. Both L and R up gives you a true stereo channel. Press both to mono the source. Press just one to select one side only as a mono source.
Plugging a jack into the INSERT socket breaks the signal path between the input preamp/filter and the EQ to let you add an external signal processor such as a compressor or noise gate into the channel signal path Use a suitable Y-lead or suitable TRS jack lead to connect to the external processor.
100Hz lo-cut filter removes low frequency noise such as microphone pops, stage noise and transport rumble before the pre-amp stage. The lo-cut filter is independent of the equaliser. The 4-band EQ lets you adjust the tonal quality of the sound in 4 separate bands. HF (treble) and LF (bass) are shelving while the 2 mid bands MF1 & MF2 are peak/dip with a Q of 1.6. This is optimum for both corrective and creative equalisation. The controls are centre detented for centre flat response. Press EQ IN to switch the EQ into the signal path. The 2 mid frequency bands on the mono input channel may be swept across a wide frequency range to tune into the exact frequency required. The mid bands are overlapping to provide additional cut or boost when required. The EQ on the stereo inputs has the 2 mid frequencies at 250Hz and 2.5kHz. This provides optimum control over boomy or boxy sounds (MF2), and to add presence and sparkle to vocals etc. (MF1). The stereo channels are well suited to stereo miking, dual mic mixing, or returning keyboards and effects processors to the mix and monitors.


8 AUX SENDS provide ample feeds for foldback monitors and effects. These are in two groups of four each with a POST/PRE switch to source the sends either pre-fader or post-fader. AUX 1-4 feed balanced XLR outputs capable of driving long cable runs and include INSERT points. These are normally used to provide MONITOR SENDS to the performers and stage crew, although they can be used for additional effects. Plug a graphic EQ into the insert to 'ring out the monitor' (tune) to the stage acoustics to minimise feedback. The effect of the EQ can be listened to using the aux master AFL system. Monitor sends are usually set pre-fade, although some sources such as radio mics can be set post-fade to avoid 'dressing room' talk spill. Note stereo input channel aux sends are the mono sum of left and right. AUX 5-8 feed jack outputs and are normally used to provide EFFECTS SENDS to external devices such as reverb and delay effects units. Effects sends are set post-fade so that the amount of effect (wet signal) is always relative to the position of the fader (dry signal). Adjust the amount of effect required for each channel using its AUX control. The effect is returned to the mix through another channel, usually the stereo return described later in this guide. Note; when the GRP/AUX REVERSE 5-8 switches are pressed in the master section AUX SENDS 5-8 feed XLR outputs with inserts. GROUPs 5-8 are rerouted to AUX 5-8 jack outputs. POST-FADE sends are always post-EQ, post-mute. PRE-FADE sends are set post-EQ, post-mute as standard, but may be internally reset to be pre-EQ, pre-mute or post-EQ, pre-mute. Each AUX SEND may be internally set to be permanently pre or post-fade rather than follow the panel switch. Refer to the Internal Link Options section in this user guide. PAN positions the channel signal between the Left L and Right R outputs when the L-R ROUTING switch is pressed. PAN also positions the channel signal between the ODD groups e.g. 1, 3, 5, 7 and EVEN groups e.g. 2, 4, 6, 8 when the ROUTING switches are pressed. This lets you position the sounds within a stereo image. In this way subgroups may be set up in mono by turning the PAN fully left L or right R or in stereo by setting PAN between L and R to feed a pair of groups. MUTE switches the signal off when pressed. A muted channel is indicated by the illuminated switch. The channel meter continues to indicate pre-mute and fader channel activity. The mute switch also illuminates when the channel is muted by one of the 4 MUTE GROUPs. Switches M1, M2, M3, M4 next to the fader, assign which mute group the input channel will be assigned to. This is controlled by the MUTE GROUP switches located in the master section. A 100mm long throw FADER provides +10dB boost above the normal '0' operating level. A 3 LED CHANNEL METER system shows signal activity at all times. The green SIG LED indicates signals greater than -20dBu, the yellow '0' LED represents normal operating level, and the red PEAK LED warns of potential overload 5dB before clipping. Set the channel so that the meter averages '0'. Back the gain off if the red peak LED flashes. Pressing PFL automatically interrupts the headphone monitor signal to let you listen to the channel pre-fader signal without interrupting the main console outputs. The signal level is shown on the LR monitor bargraph meters, and on the Mono/PFL meter if the optional meterpod is fitted. In this way each sound can be correctly lined up and checked at any time. DIRECT OUT taps the signal off post fader for connection to external processing or recording equipment. This is ideal for multitrack recording during live performance as each channel can be recorded onto a separate track for mixdown later. The direct out signal can be set pre-fader if the internal link option is changed. Refer to the Internal Link Options section in this user guide. 12

Normal fader position





AUX 1-4 balanced outputs feed foldback monitors with graphic EQ on INSERT to tune out acoustic resonances or to minimise feedback. AFL lets you check the output signal after the insert and master level control.
AUX 5-8 jack outputs to send selected signals to external effects devices.


Decide your required console configuration and set these recessed switches using a pen tip or similar. Press REVERSE to swap the group fader section with the aux master section. This represents 'MONITOR MODE' where the aux mix is on the fader with METER, AFL, MUTE, balanced XLR output and INSERT for full control of the monitor mix. AFL lets you listen to and check the effect of the inserted graphic EQ or similar processing device. In this mode the group mix is available on the aux master controls to feed the jack outputs, as well as the subgroup section. Mix and match this fader section as you require. For example you could have 2 as monitor sends, 4 as subgroups, and 2 as additional outputs.
These PAN settings show subgroup 1-2 as a stereo pair, and subgroup 3-4 panned off centre to slightly close the stereo image, useful when the speaker stacks are widely spaced and the front rows of the audience may be confused by a full stereo image.
GROUPs 5-8 are available on balanced XLR outputs to drive long cable runs. INSERTS are provided on all 8 groups to insert signal processing devices such as compressor/limiters into the signal path. Use these outputs as additional speaker feeds or for recording. In 'MONITOR MODE', GROUPs 58 become AUX 5-8 outputs to provide a total of 8 dedicated stage monitor sends on XLR with inserts. MUTE switches the signal off. Muted groups are indicated by red LEDs. AFL lets you check the output signal after the insert and fader control. Each group has 4 way LED metering providing signal presence indication and peak warning which illuminates approximately 5dB before clipping. The subgrouping is always fed from the group mix regardless of GRP/ AUX REVERSE. All the XLR outputs operate at a nominal high level +4dBu. Ensure correct matching to external equipment.


Using subgroups lets you group similar sounds together under control of a single fader (mono subgroup), or panned pair of faders (stereo subgroup). For example, the mics on a drum kit (kick, snare, overheads, toms), backing vocals, stage mics, orchestral wind section etc. Select L-R ON to route a group to LR as a subgroup. Position the signal within the stereo image using PAN.


The L and R inputs are on individual jack sockets. Sensitivity is for line level signals of -10dBV and more. For a mono source plug into the L input only.
2 Stereo return inputs are provided to return the effects ('wet') signal, usually from a stereo device, to the mix. These are normally routed to the main LR mix but may be returned to the corresponding pairs of subgroups for group effects (1-2 or 3-4). These inputs may also be used as additional line inputs, or as external inputs to the matrix mix by selecting A-B. The BAL control adjusts the balance between left and right signals, or can be used as a pan control to route the signal to one side only by rotating fully. A smooth travel 60mm fader provides precise control of the level.
TALKBACK Recording from the GROUPS
There are two ways or recording from the groups. One is to connect the multitrack inputs to the group INSERT send and link the send and return (jack tip to ring) together. Alternatively, install the 8 group output option. All outputs are impedance balanced +4dBu or -10dBV and available on a single 25 way D type connector on the rear panel. (Refer to the Options and Accessories section.) Balanced XLR input for a gooseneck (or cable) microphone for the operator to talk to the aux sends (foldback monitors). +48V may be enabled by means of an internal link for microphones which require phantom power. Refer to the Internal Link Options section in this user guide Talk to the required aux mix by pressing and holding the appropriate switch. Talk to several at the same time by holding down a combination of switches. The ability to talk to individual auxes is important when using the console for stage monitoring and cueing the performers.


Two matrix outputs A and B are provided. These are additional outputs on TRS jacks controlled by 60mm smooth travel FADERS and with AFL monitoring to check the post fader signal. The matrix mix is created from the 8 groups, L and R by adjusting the MTX level controls. These signals are fed post their respective faders. Note that in 'MONITOR MODE' (REVERSE selected) the matrix is still fed from the groups (now routed via the aux masters). External inputs to the matrix are available from the adjacent stereo returns. The matrix outputs can be balanced by fitting the balance option, refer to the Internal Link Options section in this user guide. The matrix outputs satisfy a host of applications. Traditionally the matrix has been used to feed additional speaker systems such as auditorium balcony speakers. These are fed through delay units to compensate for acoustic delay due to the distance from the main speakers. Here the balance of the mix may be slightly different from the main speakers, for example vocal light to keep the vocals nearer the stage. Adjusting the balance of the groups to the matrix achieves this. Another example is live sound recording where the PA mix may be necessarily lacking in bass due to the acoustic output of the orchestra or 'backline'. Compensate for this by recording from the matrix with the group feeds adjusted for an even recording balance.


MUTE GROUPs let you mute a selected combination of channels with a single key press. Applications include muting unused channels when mixing different bands, muting all channels except 2-track playback during intermission, muting effects, muting a bank of radio mics during an instrumental number, muting stage mics during scene changes etc.
The GL3300 includes 4 MUTE GROUPs controlled by a bank of 4 large illuminated buttons between the Group and L-R faders. These latching switches may be selected one at a time or together. To set up a mute group, press one of the mute group selector switches M1, M2, M3, M4 on the input channels. Now press the corresponding mute group switch in the master section. The mute group switch and the channel mute switch will illuminate and the input channel signal will be muted. An input channel can be a member of more than one mute group by simply pressing another channel mute group selector switch.

Plug in a 12V gooseneck lamp to provide illumination of the control panel. This should be a BNC connector type.


Individual jack sockets are provided for left and right inputs (returns) from and outputs (sends) to a stereo recorder such as a DAT or cassette machine. Alternatively the RETURN may be used for stereo intermission replay from a CD or similar to the main mix by pressing L-R. An LED warns that replay is on. The SEND may be used for recording the performance in stereo, or to feed alternative speakers, drive an induction loop hearing aid system, or to feed a stereo broadcast etc. The send is connected post L-R faders as standard. Separate send and return level controls adjust the signal to the required line level and sensitivity. The console can work with both high (+4dBu) and low (-10dBV) level equipment.


Plug in stereo headphones (30 to 600 ohms recommended) under the armrest. Adjust the LEV control for comfortable listening level. The phones and 12 segment bargraph meters normally monitor the post-fade L-R mix. Press 2-TRK to monitor the return from a stereo recorder if connected. Pressing AFL anywhere on the console automatically overrides the monitor with the selected AFL signal. Pressing PFL overrides both the monitor source and any selected AFL. This feature lets you listen to an AFL source, group for example, and check channel signals simply by pressing and releasing the required PFL buttons. PFL or AFL selected is indicated by means of a large red LED above the meters.




Press the mode switch for STAGE MONITOR application. The mono out XLR now feeds the monitor engineers 'listen wedge' speaker. It is advisable that the same type of loudspeaker is used for this as those used for the stage monitors themselves. Select your required application: LR sum mono out FOH, or AFL interrupted by PFL, STAGE MONITOR.


The main L and R outputs are individually controlled on two 100mm long throw faders. The outputs are balanced XLR to drive long cable runs. INSERT points are provided so that signal processors such as compressors or limiters may be patched into the signal path. Left and right signals are summed together to feed the balanced XLR MONO output which may be used to feed a centre fill speaker system, provide a mono broadcast or recording feed, or work a mono PA with capability for stereo recording. The MONO output is post fade but can be set pre-fade by changing internal link options.

The console is set to satisfy most applications that should be encountered. However, the following internal link options are offered to provide alternative settings for those applications that may require them. These options involve resoldering of circuit board links and should only be carried out by competent technical personnel. Further information is available in the GL3300 SERVICE MANUAL and from your agent.


1. Reconfigure each aux as required to be permanently pre-fade or post-fade rather than switched by the front panel PRE/POST switch. 2. Reconfigure the pre-fade sends to be postEQ / pre-mute, or pre-EQ / post-mute, instead of the standard post-EQ / post-mute. 3. Disable +48V phantom power regardless of panel switch position - remove link. 4. Reconfigure Direct Out to be pre-fader instead of post fader.

1. Reconfigure the LR sum source (mono) from post LR faders to pre faders. 2. Enable +48V phantom power to talkback mic input - fit link.
1. Fit Matrix out balance option for jack output tip = hot, ring = cold. Remove two links and plug in balance driver IC. 2. Reconfigure the feed to the optional VU meterpod to follow the aux master rotary control rather than the group fader - remove two resistors and link two pairs of pads with a length of wire.
