Fast Track C600 top panelThe Fast Track C600 top panel provides the following:Front/Rear Input SelectorsWhen these buttons are set to the “In” position,the corresponding front panel Instrument Inputis active. When they are set to the “Out” position, the corresponding rear panel Mic/Line Input will be active.The Input Selector button for Inputs 1 and 2 select either the front panel Instrument Inputs(TS) or rear panel Mic/Line Inputs (XLR/TRScombo) for each channel.Chapter 2: Fast Track C600 Hardware Overview3

Pad ButtonAbout Phantom PowerAll analog input channels offer a Pad button. Ifyour input signal is too high or “hot” even withthe Gain knob at a low setting, press that channel’s Pad button to reduce the input signal byapproximately 20dB.Dynamic microphones (such as a Shure SM57)do not require phantom power to operate, butare not harmed by it. Most condenser microphones (such as M-Audio Solaris ) do requirephantom power to operate.Gain ControlsThese knobs adjust the input gain levels of theircorresponding Input channels. Turn a knobclockwise to increase the gain, and counterclockwise to decrease it.Signal/Clip LED MetersThe 8-segment LED meters illuminate to helpyou set correct gain levels when recording instruments or vocals. These meters receive signalsfrom the Fast Track C600's analog-to-digitalconverter and are very precise. If the red LED (atthe top) illuminates, it means that your signalhas overloaded (or “clipped”) the converter andthat your recording may contain audible distortion. If the red LED does illuminate, decrease theinput level using the channel's Gain Knob toprevent any additional clipping.48V Switch and LEDPhantom power is activated by the switches labeled 48V on the top panel of Fast Track C600.The switch on the left controls channels 1-2,whereas the right controls channels 3-4. When a48V button is pressed, the LED directly below itilluminates and phantom power is supplied tothe corresponding XLR inputs.4Fast Track C600 User GuideAlthough phantom power can be usedsafely with most microphones, it is possibleto damage some ribbon microphones withit. Always turn off phantom power and waitat least ten seconds before connecting or disconnecting a ribbon microphone.When Fast Track C600 is powered usingthe supplied 5V power adapter, all inputchannels are active and the interface canprovide as much phantom power as required to your microphones.If the interface is using USB bus power, analog inputs 3/4 are disabled and Fast TrackC600 can provide up to 4mA of current onchannels 1 and 2, or up to 8mA if only onechannel is used. This is more than sufficient for most modern microphones, as wellas many vintage microphones.If you are not sure about the phantom power requirements for your microphone, consult yourmicrophone’s documentation or contact themanufacturer.

Power LEDThe blue Power LED indicates that Fast TrackC600 is receiving power from either the USBconnection or included external power supply.Output Selector ButtonsThese buttons switch the pairs of back panelOutputs (A, B, and C) on and off independently.This is a useful feature if, for example, you wishto check a mix between multiple sets of speakersto ensure good “translation” of that mix onlarge and small speakers. Alternatively, a subwoofer can be connected to one of the outputpairs and switched “in” or “out,” in order to verify how a mix sounds with or without the subwoofer.Pressing one of these buttons switches its associated output pair on or off. The green LED to theright of each button illuminates whenever thecorresponding pair of outputs is active.Volume KnobThe Volume knob adjusts the output level of theanalog line outputs on the back panel. It can beconfigured to control outputs 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, orany combination of these output pairs in theControl Panel.Refer to “Master Volume Knob” on page 21to learn how to do this.Multi ButtonThe Multi button can be programmed to emulate and execute up to eight different computerkey commands or key combinations in yoursoftware, as described in Chapter 6, “The MultiButton and Transport Buttons.” Depending onyour software, these can include keyboard short-cuts used for functions such as Start/Stop Record, Toggle Marker Locations, and Save, as wellas any custom keyboard shortcuts you may haveset up.Refer to the documentation provided withyour recording application for further information about the available keyboard shortcuts.Headphone VolumeThese knobs adjust the output level of the headphone outputs. Headphone output 1 alwaysmirrors line outputs 1-2 and headphone output2 mirrors line outputs 3-4.Headphone output 2 is only active whenFast Track C600 is receiving power from theexternal power supply. It is not availablewhen the unit is bus-powered.Transport ButtonsEach of these buttons can be programmed toemulate and execute a different computer keycommand or key combination in your software,as described in Chapter 6, “The Multi Buttonand Transport Buttons.” Depending on yoursoftware, these can include keyboard shortcutsused for functions such as Start/Stop Record,Toggle Marker Locations, and Save, as well ascustom keyboard shortcuts you may have setup.Refer to the documentation provided withyour recording application for further information about the available keyboard shortcuts.Chapter 2: Fast Track C600 Hardware Overview5

Theseinputs and outputs are only available whenthe external power supply is used.6Fast Track C600 User GuideWhen using the external power supply, youstill need to use the USB connection to getaudio and MIDI signals to pass between theinterface and your computer.USB PortThis port is used to connect Fast Track C600 to aUSB 2.0 port on your computer using the USBcable included with your interface. This connection allows audio and MIDI signals to pass between the interface and your computer.Fast Track C600 can be “bus powered” throughthe USB cable when external “wall” power is notavailable. This is useful in remote locationswhen a laptop’s battery may be the only available source of power. However, please note thatanalog inputs 3-4, line outputs 5-6, and headphone output 2 are not available when the interface is being bus powered. This limitation ispresent because the USB specification does notprovide enough current to power all of the highquality Fast Track C600 components.

MIDI I/OMic/Line InputsThe MIDI In and MIDI Out ports are standard 5pin MIDI connectors, each providing 16 channels of MIDI input or output.Each analog input channel provides combination XLR/TRS on the back panel. These balanced/unbalanced analog audio inputs supportthe following input levels:S/PDIF Digital I/OS/PDIF is a connection protocol that lets youdigitally connect Fast Track C600 to external devices that also have S/PDIF ports (such as CDplayers, DAT recorders, or external AD/DA converters).S/PDIF sends and receives signals over unbalanced phono (RCA) cables at up to 24-bit, 96kHzresolution when used with Fast Track C600.Please be sure to use 75-ohm coaxial cablefor S/PDIF transfers and keep the cablelength to a maximum of 10 meters.The S/PDIF input and output channels are available in addition to the analog input and outputchannels. This lets you use Fast Track C600 as a6-in/8-out audio interface. Mic (microphone) for XLR inputs Line (TRS) for line level signals on TRS or TSinputsInputs 3 and 4 are only active when FastTrack C600 is receiving power from the external power supply.On the top panel, the input signal is adjusted bythe Gain control for each channel.For channels 1 and 2, the input source (backpanel Mic/Line, or front panel Instrument) ischosen using the corresponding Front/Rear Input button for each channel.Kensington Lock ConnectorThis connector is compatible with standard laptop-style Kensington security cables for theftprevention.Line OutputsThese pairs of outputs (A, B, and C) support balanced (TRS), or unbalanced (TS), 1/4-inch connections. These outputs can be connected to amixing board or directly to a monitoring system, such as powered monitors, a stereo poweramp, or another stereo destination.Output pair 5-6 is only active whenFast Track C600 is receiving power fromthe external power supply.Chapter 2: Fast Track C600 Hardware Overview7
