When pairing a mobile device with Bluetooth with Rumble Studio 40/Stage 800, an onscreen prompt will appear in the amplifier’s DISPLAY WINDOW asking the user to confirm pairing with the device. Use the ENCODER to scroll to and select either “YES” or “NO.” Once a mobile device has been paired with Rumble Studio 40/Stage 800 for the first time, the amplifier will “remember” that device and will not ask for repeat verification unless the user subsequently chooses to “forget” Rumble Studio 40/Stage 800 on that mobile device.

BLUETOOTH/AUXILIARY INPUT AUDIO VOLUME
When playing audio from an external source (Bluetooth streaming or direct connection using top panel auxiliary input) through Rumble Studio 40/Stage 800, there are four options for controlling external audio volume, including the default setting automatically in use. To access audio volume control options, first press the MENU button and use the ENCODER to scroll to and select “BLUETOOTH” (see illustration below).
Use the ENCODER to scroll to and select “BT & AUX VOLUME”; then scroll to and select one of four options (see illustrations below).
HIGH, NORMAL, LOW: In these three settings, the external audio level uses a fixed gain setting to better control volume range appropriate for the environment (i.e., a living room or office); external audio volume is controlled by the source and is not affected by the MASTER VOLUME control knob on the amplifier. This simplifies balancing the mix of instrument and external audio signals once the external audio device is set to a comfortable level. NOTE: To avoid large and unwanted volume increases, turn down external audio device volume before selecting the NORMAL or HIGH options.
MASTER: This is the default setting, in which the external audio is set to the highest fixed gain level while both instrument volume and external audio volume are conveniently controlled by the MASTER VOLUME knob on the amplifier. To balance the mix of instrument and external audio signals, first set the MASTER VOLUME control knob on the amplifier to the desired instrument level; then adjust the volume control on the external audio device to the prefered level.
After option is selected, press MENU utility button or LAYER BUTTON corresponding to onscreen prompt “back.”
