  • There is a Stereo/Mono switch on the Numark 5000FX. If you switch this to Mono, you may be able to use just one cable (e.g. Right Output to Power Stand Channel 1). Try it both ways. See which you prefer.
  • Turn Phantom Power Off (buttons up). This is used when connection condenser microphones directly to Power Stand Channels 1 or 2. You do not need phantom power when connecting to your mixer.
  • Set trim so that when playing music normally the lights are green with flickers of red. (not solid red)
  • Set the Presets - this is up to you. Try 00, then 57, then 58.
