INTRODUCTION

The P-SOLO is designed to provide the detailed, transparent sonic performance necessary for the most critical recording and live sound applications. It’s unique desktop enclosure saves space and makes it easy to transport and connect to any recording or live sound system.

We appreciate the confidence you have placed in TRUE Systems by purchasing this product. Please feel free to contact us with questions or comments.

OVERVIEW In addition to our acclaimed TRUE preamp, P-SOLO features an instrument direct input (DI) that offers sonic performance previously available only with dedicated, high-end DI’s. You’ll get incredible articulation and control for electric bass, detail and smoothness for stringed instruments and keyboards.

In addition to the previously mentioned features, the P-SOLO includes:

 Low-Gain Mode - to accommodate high-dynamics signal sources  Selectable High-Pass Filter - to minimize breath and wind noise  XLR and TRS output connectors - for easy connectivity  Phantom Power (48V) UP-AND-RUNNING IN A HURRY

1. Read the “IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS” on page 2 of this manual.

2. Check the voltage selector on the rear panel to make sure it is set for the appropriate AC mains voltage in your area.

3. After making sure the main power switch is off, connect the AC power cord.

4. Connect output signal cables between P-SOLO BALANCED OUT and the analog line level input of your recorder, mixer, signal processor, etc. Use either the 1/4” TRS or XLR balanced output connectors. See the section “Connections” for wiring details.

5. Connect a mic cable (and mic) to MIC IN connector on the rear panel.

6. Turn on the AC power.

7. Select 48V as appropriate for the microphone you are using.

8. Adjust GAIN control for adequate signal level as indicated on the P-SOLO level indicators or on the level indicators of the device to which it is connected.

If you’re using the DI for electric instrument input:

1. Connect your instrument cables to the INSTRUMENT (DI) connector on the front panel. Any microphones plugged into MIC IN will be automatically de-selected NOTE: DO NOT use TRS plugs for these inputs, as the DI will not function correctly.

2. Adjust GAIN control for adequate signal level as indicated on the P-SOLO level indicators or on the level indicators of the device to which it is connected.

INSTALLATION

Unpacking and Inspection We recommend that you inspect your P-SOLO upon unpacking it from the factory shipping carton. In the unlikely event that the unit exhibits any physical damage, DO NOT connect it to the AC mains power, but contact your dealer immediately.

In addition to the P-SOLO, the shipping carton should also include:

 An AC power cord  A warranty registration card  This Operation Manual We recommend that you keep the shipping carton and foam inserts in the event that the unit must be shipped at some time in the future. DO NOT package the unit in “packing peanuts” or similar material as it will settle during shipping and damage may occur. If original packing materials cannot be located, wrap the unit with plastic “bubble wrap” material extending at least 2” beyond the extremities of the P-SOLO enclosure.

Mounting The P-SOLO is designed for placement on your desktop, or any convenient flat surface.

It’s light weight and compact enclosure make it easy to carry by hand or in your gig bag.

If you wish to rack mount the unit, please visit our website (www.true-systems.com) for recommended accessories and mounting procedure.

 Do not locate the unit where it is exposed to rain, moisture, or liquid spills.

 Do not locate the unit where it is exposed to temperature extremes.

 Avoid locating the unit next to equipment that emits strong electromagnetic fields.

 Avoid using mic, output, or instrument cables that are too short. While the PSOLO is quite stable for its size and shape, stepping or pulling on a short, taught cable may move it out of place, possibly causing damage.

CAUTION: To provide continued protection against fire, replacement fuses should be only of the types listed above. AC mains power cord must be removed to open Fuse Drawer for fuse replacement.

–  –  –

Microphone Connection: Microphone connection is made to an XLR MIC IN receptacle on the rear panel. The wiring configuration used for the microphone connectors on the

P-SOLO is:

 Pin 2 is positive (+)  Pin 3 is negative (-)  Pin 1 is shield Do not attempt to connect unbalanced microphones to the P-SOLO. It is not intended to operate with this type of microphone.

CAUTION: We recommend that you avoid “hot-patching” the microphone input if using a patch bay at the microphone input of the P-SOLO. Please TURN OFF phantom power and turn down the gain prior to connecting or repatching a microphone input routed through a patch bay. Failure to do so may result in transients that can damage the P-SOLO or equipment that is connected to its outputs-not to mention your ears!

Output Cable Connection: For ease of connection, two styles of BALANCED OUT connector, XLR and TRS, are provided. Both connector types are electrically equivalent and may be used simultaneously to connect to Line Inputs on mixing consoles, recorders, etc. If both outputs are used, care should be taken to avoid system ground loops. See “Troubleshooting” section for tips on eliminating hum caused by grounding problems.

The TRS and XLR output connectors are not electronically isolated. Therefore, if you connect either one of the output connectors to an unbalanced input, the other connector will automatically be unbalanced. When connecting an output of the P-SOLO to an unbalanced input, you must connect the negative signal pin (pin 3 of the XLR or “ring” of the TRS) to the shield. Failure to do this will result in audible distortion. The wiring

configuration used for the output connectors on the P-SOLO is:

A Word About Cables.....

Use high-quality, low capacitance cable. Braided shielding and “star quad” type cables will perform better in electrically noisy environments. Canare, Mogami (and others) make high performance cable of this type. Some “house brand” cables are made by quality manufacturers, but others can be inferior - be careful. Use cables with highquality connectors (Neutrik, Switchcraft, etc.). Avoid excessive cable length. Replace damaged connectors.

–  –  –

GAIN Control (big knob) is used to set the appropriate gain range. Normal microphone gain range is 15.5dB to 64dB. For very hot signal sources, the GAIN Control can be set to the INP ATTEN mode. The GAIN Control will “click” into this position as the knob is turned fully counterclockwise. In the INP ATTEN mode, the P-SOLO is set to a fixed gain of about 6dB. The INP ATTEN mode affects both mic and instrument inputs.

+48V Phantom Power selector. Phantom power (+48VDC) is activated when the +48V indicator is illuminated. Avoid selecting phantom power if you are using a ribbon microphone. While not required, it is advisable to de-select +48V when using a dynamic microphone or the INSTRUMENT input.

P-SOLO OPERATION MANUAL

HPF High Pass Filter selector. Use this to reduce undesirable low frequency background noise. The 80Hz setting is appropriate for many musical and voice applications. Note that use of the HPF will most likely not eliminate the need for a pop screen for close-mic’d vocal use.

The INSTRUMENT input (DI) is used for connection of electric instrument pickup or synthesizers. The DI we’ve designed for the P-SOLO matches (or exceeds) the sonic performance of acclaimed, dedicated DI products. It provides excellent articulation and control for electric/acoustic bass, detail and smoothness for stringed instruments and keyboards. A microphone plugged into MIC IN will be automatically de-selected when an instrument is connected to the INSTRUMENT input. Settings for GAIN and HPF apply to the DI input in the same manner as they apply to mic input. The gain range for the direct inputs is from -4 dB to +44 dB at normal gain and -14 dB in the INP ATTEN mode.
