data storage means 113 to the acoustic signal selection means 102 and the acoustic signal
branching means 105, and switching of the channel corresponding to the operated operation
element The switch and the branch switch are switched in conjunction with each other, and the

such as pink noise and white noise and a reference acoustic signal such as sine wave are
operated. The acoustic signal corresponding to the operation of the operation element is applied
to the reference acoustic signal and outputted to the difference detection means 107. As the
reference acoustic signal, a pseudo noise signal such as pink noise and white noise, and a signal
other than a sine wave can be used which can easily determine the characteristics of the acoustic
processing element. The reference acoustic signal subjected to the acoustic processing is output
to the difference detection unit 107 via the acoustic signal branching unit 105. By the above
operation, the difference detection means 107 receives the reference sound signal and the
branch reference sound signal corresponding to the operated operation element, outputs the
difference sound signal of the two signals, and corresponds the difference sound signal. It is sent
to the related information generation display means 111. On the correspondence information
generation display means 111, the output value by the difference detection means is displayed in

element with the operating element number “No. 2” is operated, the reference acoustic signal
is applied to the corresponding “fader 2”, and the fader 2 is controlled. It shows that a
difference of -3 dB of output signal occurred with respect to the reference signal.
The operator confirms the display of “−3 dB”, and the “No. 2” operation element can set
the “No. 2” sound processing element, and at the same time, the “No. 2” operation element
of the fader The level control operation can be monitored to confirm the setting. A setting and
confirmation confirmation key or the like is provided on the correspondence information
generation display means 111, and after setting and confirmation, the key of the setting /
confirmation end event signal using the key is the sound signal selection means 102 and the
sound signal It may be sent to the branching means 105. When the signal of this event is
received, the acoustic signal selection means 102 regards this signal as a signal of completion of
setting and monitor confirmation, and selects an input acoustic signal from the acoustic input
terminal for selecting a reference acoustic signal corresponding to the changeover switch. The
sound signal branching unit 105 switches the corresponding branch switch from the branch
output terminal for selecting the difference detection unit 107 side to the branch output terminal
for selecting the sound signal output unit 106 side. The mode of the console setting device 100
changes from the monitor state to the operable state. In production, after the above operation,
based on the data of the control number outputted by the operation element means 108,
08-05-2019

referring to the corresponding data stored in the correspondence information generation display
means 111, the corresponding sound The processing elements can be controlled. For example, it
is assumed that the control number "101" is issued from the second operation element during
operation. After that, the sound processing element number "No. 2" corresponding to the control
number "No. 101" and the "fader" of the operation element classification are read out from the
data stored in the correspondence processing control means 113. Based on this data, control of
sound processing corresponding to the operation element is performed. Although the above
embodiment shows an example in which the output from the difference detection means 107 is
represented by character data, acoustic processing for controlling frequency characteristics even
when displayed by a light emitting element such as an LED A graphic display of frequency
characteristics may be performed on the element. Further, each means described above may be
configured by hardware or software, and the signals such as the input sound signal and the
reference sound signal may be digital signals or analog signals. As described above, in the
console setting apparatus according to the first embodiment of the present invention, when
operating the operation element, reference is made to the acoustic characteristics of the acoustic
processing element corresponding to the operated operation element. Since the acoustic signal
can be output and confirmed, the correspondence between the operation element and the
acoustic processing element can be freely set using display means such as a personal computer,
and at the same time, the connection confirmation by the reference acoustic signal, the
operational element and the acoustic processing element Thus, it is possible to perform
interlocking confirmation of the above, and in a short time, it is possible to set the
correspondence between the operation element and the acoustic processing element.
In the above embodiment, eight operating elements are described. However, in an actual acoustic
system, the number of operating elements increases as the scale of the system increases. The
above-mentioned setting and the function of automatic confirmation using an acoustic signal are
significant effects in that setting can be performed in a short time. Second Embodiment FIG. 2 is

In the example shown in FIG. 11, it comprises two faders and two equalizers. The equalizer is
provided with an operator for setting the cutoff frequency, an operator for setting the gain value,
and an operator for setting the Q value. The operator uses these three operators to adjust the
characteristics of the equalizer. Since the shape shown in FIG. 10 is the shape of an actual
console, symbol display is performed on a display such as a personal computer with symbols
having the same shape as shown in FIG. The shape of the symbol may be a level at which the
arrangement of the controls on the actual operation table can be determined. By simultaneously
displaying the correspondence information on a display such as a personal computer together
with this symbol display, it is possible to visually grasp the correspondence between the sound
processing element and the operation element while matching it with the physical shape of the
actual console. Become. Further, since the output of the reference sound signal by each sound
processing element can be monitored, the acoustic signal monitor using the sound processing

according to the second embodiment of the present invention displays on the display a symbol
similar to the physical shape of the operating element as shown in FIG. Since it is possible to set
and confirm the correspondence between the physical shape and the arrangement of the sound
processing elements and the sound processing element, it is possible to easily set the
correspondence between the operation elements and to perform monitor confirmation
simultaneously with the reference sound signal. Thus, the setting time of the correspondence
relationship between the operation element and the sound processing element can be
significantly reduced. Further, by displaying on the display a symbol similar to the console, even
if there is no physical operation element, assuming the physical shape of the operation element,
the operation element and the sound processing element on the display Setting of the
correspondence relationship of Third Embodiment FIG. 3 is a block diagram showing a
configuration of a console setting device according to a third embodiment of the present
invention. In FIG. 3, in addition to the console setting device 100 according to the first

will be omitted.
The operation of the console setting device configured as described above will be described
below. The description of the parts of the operation of the console setting device 300 that are the
same as the operations of the console setting device 200 according to the second embodiment of
the present invention will be omitted. Operation data is generated by the operation element
information generation unit 109 based on the operation information of the operation element
unit 108. In the operation information, data of the operation element classification is defined as
shown in FIG. Here, the operating element classification means "fader" which controls the level,
"gain" which adjusts the frequency characteristic, "frequency", "Q value", etc. When this operating
element classification is determined, the operating element The general physical shape of is
approximately determined. Therefore, based on the operation element classification data, symbol
data of operation elements that can be displayed on a display such as a personal computer are
generated, and the correspondence information is displayed on a display such as a personal
computer in the same manner as the second embodiment. The correspondence between the
operation element and the acoustic processing element can be easily set together with the
symbols displayed on the top and automatically generated and displayed based on the operation
element classification data. As described above, the console setting apparatus according to the

the operation element by automatically generating data necessary for displaying the operation
element symbol. Since the symbol of the operating element is displayed without preparing it, the
correspondence between the operating element and the acoustic processing element can be
easily set without preparing the symbol data in advance. Further, similarly to the effect described
in the first embodiment of the present invention, since the monitor confirmation by the reference
sound signal can be simultaneously performed, the setting time of the operation element and the
sound processing element can be shortened. Fourth Embodiment FIG. 4 is a block diagram

The operation of the console setting device configured as described above will be described
below. The description of the parts of the operation of the console setting device 400 that are the
same as the operations of the console setting device 100 according to the first embodiment of
the present invention will be omitted. The operation element means 408, the operation element
information generation means 409, and the correspondence information generation display
means 411 are the operation element means 108, the operation element information generation
means 109, and the correspondence according to the first embodiment of the present invention,
respectively. It is assumed that the related information generation display means 111 performs
the same operation although the input and output are partially different. The operator uses the
operation information from the operation element means 108 to determine the reference
position of each operation element as follows. For example, in the case of an operating element
called a fader, the physical position on the operating element of “0 dB” which is the reference
position is determined. At this time, the operator uses the reference position determination
trigger means 418 to generate a trigger for reference position determination. By this trigger, data
of the reference position of each operating element is generated by the operating element
position detecting means 419. Generally, this reference position data is given by position data of
the physical position of the operation element, or by a parameter value or the like. The obtained
reference position data is sent to the correspondence information generation display means 411
of the operation element and the sound processing element. On the correspondence relationship
information generation and display means, the correspondence relationship between the
operation element and the acoustic processing element can be determined by the reference
position data, and at the same time, the reference value of the operation element can be set. In
the case of the operating element of the fader, the reference position of “0 dB” is determined,
and in the case of the operating element of frequency selection, the frequency value of the center
position on the operating element is determined. As described above, since the console setting
apparatus according to the fourth embodiment of the present invention is provided with the
reference position determination trigger generating means 418 and the operating element
reference position detecting means 419, The reference position or center position can be
determined manually. In addition, since these operations are performed simultaneously with the
operations described in the first embodiment of the present invention, the setting of the
operation element and the sound processing element and the confirmation by the monitor are
simultaneously performed while changing the reference position of the operation element. Can
reduce the setting time. Fifth Embodiment FIG. 5 is a block diagram showing a configuration of a
console setting device according to a fifth embodiment of the present invention. In FIG. 5, the
console setting device 500 generates the reference sound signal generating means 103
constituting the console setting device 100 according to the first embodiment of the present
invention in accordance with the control signal from the correspondence processing control
means 113. It is the structure changed into the reference sound signal generation means 503
which can change the kind of reference sound signal to be carried out.

Among the constituent means of the console setting device 500, those performing the same
processing as the constituent means in the console setting device 100 according to the first
embodiment of the present invention are given the same reference numerals, I omit explanation.
The operation of the console setting device configured as described above will be described
below. The reference sound signal generation means 503 generates a predetermined reference
sound signal such as a sine wave or a pseudo noise signal according to the operation element,
and the generated reference sound signal is applied to the third selected input terminal of each
of the switches. It is outputted as well as being outputted to the difference detection means 107.
The determination of the reference sound signal generated in accordance with the operation
element is made in advance based on storing the generated signal correspondence table. As
described in the first embodiment of the present invention, the correspondence processing
control unit 113 stores correspondence data indicating the correspondence between the
operation element and the sound processing element. The correspondence data is associated
with a “fader” that performs level control, an “equalizer” that controls the frequency
characteristic, and the like. For example, in the case of FIG. 9, the operation element classification
"fader" is associated with the operation element number "No. 1". In general, a sine wave signal is
suitable as a reference sound signal because fader processing controls the level of the sound
signal. In this case, a reference sound signal corresponding to the switching control signal of the
switch of the channel corresponding to the operation element, which is output from the handling
processing control means 113, is generated based on the above generated signal correspondence
table. In this way it is possible to select a reference signal suitable for signal processing
classification. Further, when the “equalizer” is selected as the operation element classification,
a uniform reference signal is selected on a frequency band such as a white noise signal so that
difference detection of frequency characteristics can be easily performed. As described above, the
console setting apparatus according to the fifth embodiment of the present invention classifies
the reference acoustic signal most suitable for the detection operation by classifying the signal
processing of the acoustic processing element corresponding to the operation element. This can
be selected, and the accuracy of the monitor signal of the difference detection output at the time
of setting the correspondence can be improved. As described above, according to the present
invention, by simultaneously performing the setting of the correspondence between the
operation element and the sound processing element and the connection check operation of the
correspondence, the setting of the correspondence and the confirmation thereof can be
performed. It is possible to provide a console setting device that reduces the time required.
