How do i install my orbit.6

The orbit.6 is designed to be placed in a 19 Inch rack unit or custom installation. When fitting the mixer into a rack unit always use protective nylon washers under the securing screws to avoid damaging the anodised aluminium faceplate, and do not overtighten.

What happens if i spill liquid on my mixer

If liquid is accidentally spilt onto the mixer, turn off the power supply immediately, and if possible, turn the unit upside-down to minimise ingress. Clean off the spill with a damp cloth, and dry thoroughly before powering back on. If afterwards the mixer fails to function properly or is excessively noisy, contact Union Audio technical support, or an appointed service agent to have the unit inspected at the earliest opportunity.

How do I look after the mixer

When not in use, cover the mixer with a dedicated protective screen or dust sheet, and avoid siting the unit where it will be in direct sunlight for any length of time. Clean stains or spills with a soft damp cloth and dry carefully with a soft cotton cloth. Never use harsh abrasive or solvent based cleaning products. Turn off the mixer when not in use to minimise power consumption and consider additional cooling (such as a directing a desktop fan at the mixer and power supply) when operating in high ambient temperatures. Only ever store the unit in a dry environment as dampness and high humidity will shorten the life of the potentiometers and could promote internal corrosion.

Why do the VU Meter needles sometimes stick or lag?

The needles in the VU meters are highly sensitive to electrostatic charges. This can cause the needle to initially stick when first powered on or lag behind the other meter. The static charge will normally dissipate after a few seconds but to minimise the issue take extra care when polishing or cleaning the mixer and be sure to use a soft cotton or anti-static cloth with a specialist anti-static spray to avoid inducing a charge on the meter. Take extra care when wiping the meter windows as they can be easily scratched.
