ESC1 User Interface

This article describes how to use the GUI on the ESC1 controller.
The user’s means of interaction with the amplifier is through the menu selection knob.
The knob is located next to the display and can be turned clockwise and counter clockwise, as well as being pressed.

Basic navigation

Items in the menu system are selected by turning the menu selection knob:

  • Clockwise rotation will move the “selector” to the right or down
  • Counter-clockwise rotation will move the “selector” to the left or up

Whether the selector is moved up/down or left/right depends on the current menu displayed.

  • Press the menu selection knob to activate the selected menu item
  • Press and hold the knob to return to the previous view

To change or input the parameter values in the selected menu item:
1. Turn the knob to move between the parameter fields
2. Press the knob to select the parameter field

  • The field turns green to indicate that it is selected and ready for input value

3. Turn the knob to change the parameter value
4. Press the knob to select the parameter value
