Con­fig Mode

Chang­ing Modes:

1. There are two main oper­at­ing con­sole “modes” on the SC48. Con­fig­u­ra­tion Mode and Show Mode.

You can change between by press­ing the con­fig mode button.

Gen­er­ally as a rule of thumb you can do things in Con­fig Mode that will break the audio stream, whereas in show mode you will not be allowed to do this.
