" Inserts:

• 1/4” -TRS - Here you can insert your own effects and use
the Momentary / Engage controls on MO-FX to control them.
MO-FX’s pair of analog inserts operate at 0dBu, (the same
level as the insert jacks on most mixers). The inserts are
before all MO-FX effect blocks. MO-FX automatically senses
when you insert 1/4” TRS plugs into its insert jacks. If you
insert an effect into only one of the channels, MO-FX will
automatically MONO itself whenever the Insert / Distortion is
engaged. That way you can insert your favorite guitar pedal
and rest assured that MO-FX will take care of the patching to
keep everything working properly. Note: The distortion drive
control at 0 effectively bypasses the distortion gain blocks.
This allows you to use your insert effects by engaging the
Distortion/ Insert block without having to distort the signal.

" Input:

• Phono/Line Switch - this switches the RCA inputs to accept
phono or line level.

• RCA. -stereo - When the Phono/Line switch is in the Line
position, this input is optimized for a +4 dBu line level input
signal. When the Phono/Line switch is set to Phono, the RIAA
phono pre-amp will accept a range of cartridge output levels.

• 1/4” -stereo TRS Balanced - This input is optimized for +4
dBu input signal. When using the 1/4” inputs on MOFX be
sure to use the 1/4” outputs as well. This will ensure no
noticeable signal loss.

Note: Connecting both RCA and 1/4 inch jacks to the Source
input causes the level of the 1/4” input to drop. Make sure
that when you are using the 1/4” inputs that nothing is
connected to the RCA input

" Output:

• RCA -stereo - The output level is nominally +4dBu
• 1/4”-stereo - This output produces a balanced +4 dBu
signal. Used balanced line for long runs (>25 feet) as they
give a cleaner signal that is not susceptible to hum and noise
like unbalanced lines are.


For example, if the tempo is 100 BPM and the speed control is set at a division of 1:1, then for a given
effect block the speed is 100 BPM. If the division is set at 2:1, then the speed for a given effect block
is 200 BPM. Note: MO-FX can only use one global tempo. However, each effect block with sync
engaged can have a different beat division.

To switch from Tap Tempo back to MIDI sync, press and hold the Tap Tempo button for 1 second.



" Thru:

The dry signal passes through MO-FX at the same level it entered

regardless of effects being engaged or not.

" Auto:

The dry signal is automatically cut when any effect is turned on with

its engage or momentary button.

" Kill:

The dry signal is “killed” at the output of the box. Only effect signals,

(when they are engaged), are sent out of the box. Note: “on” is selected by
pushing and holding the Kill Logic button for more than 500 milliseconds.




Bypasses all effects and sends the dry signal out of the stereo mix output regardless of the Kill Logic setting.

" Power Input:

This input will accept an IEC standard power cable. The internal power supply can

be used in any region. The fuse drawer can be rotated to accommodate the different power ratings
around the world. Check the chart printed near the power entry for fuse ratings.

" Power Switch:

Turns the unit on and off. Note: When turning on the equipment be sure to turn

the power amplifiers on last. This will ensure that the noise common to mixers and signal processors
does not cause damage to the speaker system. When powering down, be sure to turn the power
amplifiers off first.

" Footswitch:

A standard momentary footswitch may be used to turn Bypass on and off. MO-FX can

accept normally open or normally closed footswitches but the footswitch must be inserted before
power up in order for MO-FX to recognize it. The Electrix 3 button footswitch adds extra funtionality.
It allows remote control of Tap Tempo, Dry mode, and global bypass.

" MIDI In/Out/Thru:

Connect MIDI devices here. See the MIDI Applications section for more detail.

" MIDI Channel Select:

This selects the channel for both MIDI input and output.
