Behringer LX1200H/LX210 Musical Instrument Amplifier User Manual

One outstanding V-AMPIRE feature is that you can choose
which parts of the signal you want to route to the outputs. To
adapt your device perfectly to the various studio and live
applications you can choose between 5 different operating modes
(CONFIGURATIONS). Independent of the settings stored in the
presets, these operating modes determine where the signal for
the line outs and headphones comes from so that both left and
right output signal can be used for different purposes.
Because the choice of the most suitable operating mode
depends on where you use it, we have described some typical
+ With the headphone plugged, the device auto-
matically switches into S1 operating mode.

Table 3.1: Operating modes (CONFIGURATIONS)
The settings of the configurations are made in the configuration
menu by simultaneously pressing the buttons D and E. The display
shows the current configuration. Use the arrow buttons to select
another configuration. Please refer to table 3.1 for information
on the corresponding output signals.
+ By pressing the TAP button and adjusting the GAIN
control you can additionally adapt the input
amplification to particularly loud pick ups.
In the configuration menu you can adapt the input gain to
different pick up types. To do this, keep the TAP button pressed
and the surrounding GAIN control LEDs show the current setting.
Turning the GAIN control from its center position to the left you
will reduce the input amplification which probably is
recommendable with very loud pick up types. GAIN settings in
clockwise direction are only recommended with very weak pick
up types.
Quit the configuration menu by pressing TUNER/EXIT.

Figure 3.1 shows a single 4 speaker cabinet connected to
the left speaker output (mono) to deliver the full 120 Watts.

Figure 3.2 shows a stereo cabinet (e.g. the BG412V from our
ULTRASTACK series) connected to the left and right speaker
outputs. The cabinet is then powered by 2 x 60 Watts at
2 x 8 impedance to get the most from the V-AMPIREs stereo
Fig. 3.2: Stereo operation at 2 x 8
Our favourite operating mode for live applications is Live 2
(L2), i.e., a mono signal (1 x 4 ) or a stereo signal
(2 x 8 ), with all effects, amp simulation and live EQ but no
speaker simulation. The XLR output has analog ULTRA-G speaker
simulation that can be connected to a sound reinforcement system.
Here, the MASTER control only influences the stage volume but
not the XLR output level.
If you want to listen to a digital speaker simulation using an
amplifier, select L1.
