The two bright orange rack ears can be attached to the sides of the AudioFuse 16Rig to either put it in a rack or place it on a desk or table. The screw holes are drilled so as to help you avoid putting the ears on the wrong sides, but you should still be careful. Just remember that the left ear has the Arturia logo on it!
In addition to the rack ears and screws, your AudioFuse 16Rig should also have a pair of rectangular black plastic feet for the rear of the box, and a set of two semi-circular rubber pads. You'll need these for tabletop use.
- 1. Stick the rubber pads onto the rack ears at the spot that will become the "feet". This will keep the feet from scratching whatever you rest them on.
- 2. Attach the rubber pads so that the straight edge aligns with the 90º bend in the rack ear, and then press the circular portion of the pad firmly onto the rack ear in the direction of the two large screw holes. (See the diagram above or on the box lid.)
- 3. Be sure to mount the rack ears so they are pointing under the AudioFuse 16Rig (toward its center), not pointing away.
- 4. The two rear feet have tiny plastic guide pins that help them seat properly on the bottom panel. Once you line those up with the guide holes in the bottom of the unit, it will be easy to fasten the feet into place with the provided screws.
- 5. When the feet are properly installed, the AudioFuse 16Rig will be supported in four places: the left and right rack ears (under the front) and the left and right feet (under the back).
Now your unit is elevated above the tabletop and perfectly level and solid, so you could place other gear on it, such as a small controller or tablet.
Attach the rack ears in the configuration shown above, and the AudioFuse 16Rig is ready to slot into your rack. In this configuration, you won't need the rear feet or rubber pads, so leave them in the box in case you want to set up your AudioFuse 16Rig for tabletop use.
