The Yamaha MG24/14FX mixing console allows you to control up to 24 different audio channels on the same device. This is helpful when working in a sound studio and capturing audio from multiple sources. Each audio channel has its own list of controls, so you can accurately adjust each audio track to match your preferences. The controls for each channel are identical, so once you learn proper techniques for one audio channel you will know how to use the entire device.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Connect the external equipment to the Yamaha mixing station. Each audio channel has a 1/4-inch and XLR cable connection. Connect musical instruments that use a 1/4-inch cable (such as guitars and keyboards) by connecting the cable between the instrument’s "Out" port and the "In" port of the Yamaha MG24/14FX. You can connect microphones that have an XLR plug by connecting an XLR cable between the XLR socket on the bottom of the microphone and the "In" port on the audio channel of the mixing console.

  2. 2

    Push the "Power" switch on the side of the mixing station.

  3. 3

    Increase and decrease the volume of each audio channel with the slider at the bottom of each channel. If you want to instantly mute the channel, push the "Mute" button along side this slider.

  4. 4

    Increase the bass, treble and pan with the adjustment knobs directly above the slider. This adjusts the high and low tones of the audio channel, while the pan moves the audio from the left to right speakers.

  5. 5

    Increase or decrease the reverb effect with the reverb knob. The reverb knob adds the amount of echo to the sound signal. You can add more depth to the sound channel by adding a slight reverb to electric guitars and vocals.

  6. 6

    Increase or decrease the overall volume of all the equipment connected with the main volume control sliders, located on the right side of the Yamaha MG24/14FX mixing console.
