Congratulations on purchasing the EVO Start Recording Bundle, you're just a few steps away from creating great recordings, streams and content. Just follow the steps below to get setup:
Connecting the Headphones
Once this is all set up, connect your SR2000 headphones to the EVO’s headphone jack found on the front of EVO 4. If you haven’t already, ensure you screw on the included adaptor to make the jack connection the correct size for the headphone port.
*Note that plugging in headphones will automatically mute any monitors connected to the EVO to allow for more accurate headphone monitoring. To hear audio through your monitors again, simply unplug the headphones.
Tap the Volume Button on the EVO 4 and turn the volume knob to adjust the headphone volume.
Connecting the Microphone
Now you can connect your SR1 microphone. To do this screw the shock mount onto your Mic Stand (not included).
Securely and safely place the microphone inside the top of the Shock Mount and turn the locking ring at the bottom of the mount to secure the microphone into place.
*Note - the side with the EVO logo is the front of the microphone so ensure this is pointing toward your sound source.
Now connect the female end of the included XLR cable into the bottom of the microphone, taking care to align the pins. Plug the other end of the XLR cable into the Mic input 1 of the EVO 4.
Setting the Perfect Microphone Level
The SR1 is a condenser microphone and therefore requires +48V phantom power to operate. To turn this on, Press the “1” button on the EVO 4 to select this input and press the +48V button to turn phantom power on for this channel. The +48V button will now illuminate red to indicate that phantom power is active.
You can now use Smartgain to set your perfect input level. To do this, press the green Smartain button, tap the “1” button to select this channel and press the Smartgain button again to begin. The lights will now start pulsing to indicate that Smartgain is active.
Perform into the microphone as you would whilst recording/streaming with the EVO. After ten seconds, the Smartgain button should flash green to indicate that the level has now been set.
If the button flashes red, this indicates that Smartgain failed due to lack of input signal. Double-check your connections and check that phantom power is engaged for the microphone.
