Please note: The Screws, Cable, and Plate are re-usable for your NS7II's crossfader.  The Crossfader PCB (above) is the only part that is required for a crossfader replacement.  Please reuse the Screws, Plate, and Cable.


Removing the Crossfader from the NS7II
  1. Slide the four channel sliders and the crossfader to the center position. Remove the four channel volume slider knobs, as well as the crossfader knob by pulling gently straight up. Removal of the round rotary encoder, equalizer, and gain knobs is unnecessary.

  2. Remove the seven (7) hex head screws from the top.

  15. Replace the Phillips screws. NOTE: If the crossfader seems to sit too high or is difficult to screw down, you may need to tuck the cable a slightly different way. The NS7II is designed to have extra room to tuck the cable in the crossfader compartment.
