Ams Dmx settings

I'm new around here and have been absorbing as much as I can as fast as I can. I am a second engineer and I have a firsting gig coming up. The room I will be in doesn't have a lot of gear but it does have a Ams Dmx. I've never used one but I know it's a staple in almost every studio. I believe I'll use it on vocals but since I've never used it, I'm nervious.

How do I use it?

What are some good settings to start with?

Are there any tricks I should be aware of?

I've only seen pictures but never touched one. I've tried to get my hands on a manual, but the tech keeps on avoiding me and I'm trying to get on his good side as much as possible. Any help would be helpful.

dmx ... ??? thats a delay , thats all it basically is .

you simply turn it on , push reset and D + 0 to clear the settings .
A is the left side delay ,
B is the right side delay ,
C is the harmonizer section ,

you can simply program it by enetering the delay times you wanna work with f.ex. press A - delay time - enter .
the lenghth of the delay times depend on the internal cards .
i guess 3.300 ms L&R is the basic setup .
you have an main output , input for l&r and feedback .
you can choose stereo or mono input / output .
you can lock ( sample ) phrases and play em back or trigger them .
to adjust use those grey buttons .
you have an external lfo to make effects like chorus etc. if you choose short delay times . there are some cool tricks in the manual .

hope that helps ... good luck

It's a delay, it's a harmonizer, it's a sampler... for vocals... the classic "Phil Collins" setting is A=12ms, B=0; AC=1.000 BC=1.007 [if you don't understand what that means, R.T.F.M.], pan to the sides to taste.

Other than that... **** around with it and see if you get something cool.

Best of luck.
