CAUTION

Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the device or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the device is not to be used for extended periods of time, or during electrical storms. When removing the electric plug from the device or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it. To avoid generating unwanted noise, make sure there is 50cm or more between the AC power adaptor and the device. Do not cover or wrap the AC power adaptor with a cloth or blanket. Do not use the device in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment, mobile phone, or other electric devices. Doing so may result in noise, both in the device itself and in the TV or radio next to it.

Connections

Before connecting the device to other devices, turn off the power for all devices. Before turning the power on or off for all devices, set all volume levels to minimum.

Location

Before moving the device, remove all connected cables. When setting up the device, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Avoid setting all equalizer controls and faders to their maximum. Depending on the condition of the connected devices, doing so may cause feedback and may damage the speakers. Do not expose the device to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to prevent the possibility of panel disguration or damage to the internal components. Do not place the device in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.

Handling caution

When turning on the AC power in your audio system, always turn on the power amplier LAST, to avoid speaker damage. When turning the power off, the power amplier should be turned off FIRST for the same reason. Do not insert your ngers or hands in any gaps or openings on the device. Avoid inserting or dropping foreign objects (paper, plastic, metal, etc.) into any gaps or openings on the device If this happens, turn off the power immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the device inspected by qualied Yamaha service personnel. Do not use the device or headphones for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician. Do not rest your weight on the device or place heavy objects on it, and avoid use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.

XLR-type connectors are wired as follows (IEC60268 standard): pin 1: ground, pin 2: hot (+), and pin 3: cold (-). Insert TRS phone jacks are wired as follows: sleeve: ground, tip: send, and ring: return. Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modications to the device, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the device is not in use. Even when the power switch is in the STANDBY position, electricity is still owing to the device at the minimum level. When you are not using the device for a long time, make sure you unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet. The performance of components with moving contacts, such as switches, volume controls, and connectors, deteriorates over time. Consult qualied Yamaha service personnel about replacing defective components.

In general: less is better. There are many situations in which youll need to cut certain frequency ranges, but use boost sparingly, and with caution. Proper use of EQ can eliminate interference between instruments in a mix and give the overall sound better definition. Bad EQand most commonly bad boostjust sounds terrible.

Cut for a Cleaner Mix

For example: cymbals have a lot of energy in the mid and low frequency ranges that you dont really perceive as musical sound, but which can interfere with the clarity of other instruments in these ranges. You can basically turn the low EQ on cymbal channels all the way down without changing the way they sound in the mix. Youll hear the difference, however, in the way the mix sounds more spacious, and instruments in the lower ranges will have better definition. Surprisingly enough, piano also has an incredibly powerful low end that can benefit from a bit of low-frequency roll-off to let other instruments notably drums and bassdo their jobs more effectively. Naturally you wont want to do this if the piano is playing solo. The reverse applies to kick drums and bass guitars: you can often roll off the high end to create more space in the mix without compromising the character of the instruments. Youll have to use your ears, though, because each instrument is different and sometimes youll want the snap of a bass guitar, for example, to come through.

frequency ranges of some

Cymbal
Fundamental: The frequency that determines the basic musical pitch. Harmonics: Multiples of the fundamental frequency that play a role in determining the timbre of the instrument.
Some Frequency Facts The lowest and highest frequencies than can be heard by the human ear are generally considered to be around 20 Hz and 20,000 Hz, respectively. Average conversation occurs in the range from about 300 Hz to about 3,000 Hz. The frequency of a standard pitchfork used to tune guitars and other instruments is 440 Hz (this corresponds to the A3 key on a piano tuned to concert pitch). Double this frequency to 880 Hz and you have a pitch one octave higher (i.e. A4 on the piano keyboard). In the same way you can halve the frequency to 220 Hz to produce A2 an octave lower.

Boost with Caution

If youre trying to create special or unusual effects, go ahead and boost away as much as you like. But if youre just trying to achieve a goodsounding mix, boost only in very small increments. A tiny boost in the midrange can give vocals more presence, or a touch of high boost can give certain instruments more air. Listen, and if things dont sound clear and clean try using cut to remove frequencies that are cluttering up the mix rather than trying to boost the mix into clarity. One of the biggest problems with too much boost is that it adds gain to the signal, increasing noise and potentially overloading the subsequent circuitry.

Reverb Level

Its amazing how quickly your ears can lose perspective and fool you into believing that a totally washed-out mix sounds perfectly fine. To avoid falling into this trap start with reverb level all the way down, then gradually bring the reverb into the mix until you can just hear the difference. Any more than this normally becomes a special effect.

The Modulation Effects:

Phasing, Chorus, and Flanging
All of these effects work on basically the same principle: a portion of the audio signal is timeshifted and then mixed back with the direct signal. The amount of time shift is controlled, or modulated, by an LFO (Low-frequency Oscillator). For phasing effects the shift is very small. The phase difference between the modulated and direct signals causes cancellation at some frequencies and reinforces the signal at others and this causes the shimmering sound we hear.

Front & Rear Panels
The following applies to both the MG124CX and MG124C. In cases where different features need to be described for each model, the MG124CX feature will be described first, followed by the MG124C feature in brackets: MG124CX (MG124C).

Channel Control Section

1 MIC Input Jacks (CHs 1 to 4, 5/6, 7/8)
Channels 1 to 4 (Monaural) Channels 5/6 and 7/8 (Stereo) Channels 9/10 and 11/12 (Stereo)
These are balanced XLR-type microphone input jacks (1:Ground; 2:Hot; 3:Cold).
2 LINE Input Jacks (CHs 1 to 4)
These are balanced TRS phone-jack line inputs (T:Hot; R:Cold; S:Ground). You can connect either balanced or unbalanced phone plugs to these jacks.
3 LINE Input Jacks (CHs 5/6 to 11/12)
These are unbalanced phone-jack stereo line inputs.
4 LINE Input Jacks (CHs 9/10, 11/12)
These are unbalanced stereo RCA pin jacks.
Where an input channel provides both a MIC input jack and a LINE input jack, or a LINE input jack and an RCA pin jack, you can use either jack but not both at the same time. Please connect to only one jack on each channel.
5 INSERT Jacks (CHs 1 to 4)

Each of these jacks provides an insert point between the equalizer and fader of the corresponding input channel (CHs 1 to 4). The INSERT jacks can be used to independently connect devices such as graphic equalizers, compressors, or noise lters into the corresponding channels. These are TRS (tip, ring, sleeve) phone jacks that carry both the send and return signal (tip = send/out; ring = return/in; sleeve = ground).

A B C D

Patching external devices via an INSERT jack requires a special insert cable such as illustrated below (insert cable sold separately).

Tip: OUT
Sleeve (Ground) Sleeve (Ground) Ring: IN Tip: OUT Tip: IN

E F G H

To the output jack of the external processor The signal output from the INSERT jacks is reverse-phased. This should not be a problem when connecting to an effect unit, but please be aware of the possibility of phase conict when connecting to other types of device.

6 GAIN Control

Adjusts the input signal level. To achieve the best balance between S/N ratio and dynamic range, adjust the level so that the PEAK indicator 9 lights only occasionally and briey on the highest input transients. The 60 to 16 scale is the MIC input adjustment range. The 34 to +10 scale is the LINE input adjustment range.
Reference Front & Rear Panels
Switch (High Pass Filter)
This switch toggles the HPF on or off. To turn the HPF on, press the switch in ( ). The HPF cuts frequencies below 80 Hz (the HPF does not apply to the line inputs of stereo input channels 34).

C EFFECT (AUX2) Controls

Adjusts the level of the signal sent from the channel to the EFFECT (AUX2) bus. Note that the signal level sent to the bus is also affected by the Channel fader. On stereo channels (5/6, 7/8, 9/10, or 11/12), the signals from the L (odd) and R (even) channels are mixed and then sent to the EFFECT (AUX2) bus.

8 COMP Control

Adjusts the amount of compression applied to the channel. As the knob is turned to the right the compression ratio increases while the output gain is automatically adjusted accordingly. The result is smoother, more even dynamics because louder signals are attenuated while the overall level is boosted.
D PAN Control (1 to 4) PAN/BAL Control (5/6 and 7/8) BAL Control (9/10 and 11/12)
The PAN control determines the stereo positioning of the channel signal on the Group 1 and 2 buses or on the Stereo L and R buses. The BAL control knob sets the balance between left and right channels. Signals input to the L input (odd channel) go to the Group 1 bus or to the Stereo L bus; signals input to the R input (even channel) go to the Group 2 bus or the Stereo R bus.

Avoid setting the compression too high, as the the higher average output level that results may lead to feedback.

9 PEAK Indicator

The peak level of the post-EQ signal is detected, and the PEAK indicator lights red when the level reaches 3 dB below clipping. For XLR-equipped stereo input channels (5/6 and 7/8), both the post-EQ and post-mic-amp peak levels are detected, and the indicator lights red if either of these levels reaches 3 dB below clipping.
0 Equalizer (HIGH, MID, and LOW)
This three-band equalizer adjusts the channels high, mid, and low frequency bands. Channels 9/10 and 11/12 have two bands: high and low. Setting the knob to the t position produces a at response in the corresponding band. Turning the knob to the right boosts the corresponding frequency band, while turning to the left attenuates the band. The following table shows the EQ type, frequency, and maximum cut/boost for each of the three bands.
Band HIGH MID LOW Type Shelving Peaking Shelving Frequency 10 kHz 2.5 kHz 100 Hz Maximum Cut/Boost
On channels where this knob provides both PAN and BAL control (channels 5/6 and 7/8), the knob operates as a PAN control when input is received via the MIC jack or L (MONO) input only, and as a BAL control when input is received via both L and R inputs.

E ON Switch

Turn this switch on to send the signal to the buses. The switch lights orange when on.
F PFL (Pre-Fader Listen) Switch
This switch lets you monitor the channels pre-fader signal. Press the switch in ( ) so that it lights to turn it on. When the switch is on the channel pre-fader signal is output to the PHONES and MONITOR OUT I jacks for monitoring.

G 1-2 Switch

This switch assigns the channels signal to the Group 1 and 2 buses.
To send the signal to the Group buses engage the ON switch ( ).

A AUX (AUX1) Control

Adjusts the level of the signal sent from the channel to the AUX (AUX1) bus. The knob should generally be set close to the t position. On stereo channels, the signals from the L (odd) and R (even) channels are mixed and sent to the AUX (AUX1) bus.

Be sure to leave this switch off ( ) if you do not need phantom power. When tuning the switch on ( ), be sure that only condenser mics are connected to the XLR input jacks (CHs: 1 to 7/8). Devices other than condenser mics may be damaged if connected to the phantom power supply. Note, however, that the switch may be left on when connecting to balanced dynamic microphones. To avoid damage to speakers, be sure to turn off ampliers (or powered speakers) before turning this switch on or off. We also recommend that you turn all output controls (STEREO OUT Master Fader, GROUP 1-2 Fader, etc.) to their minimum settings before operating the switch to avoid the risk of loud noises that could cause hearing loss or device damage.

2TR IN control

Adjusts the level of the signal sent from the 2TR IN jacks to the STEREO L/R buses. The following illustration shows how the switch settings correspond to the signal selection.

If you are using the MG124CX, the Master EFFECT control does not affect the level of the signal sent from the EFFECT bus to the internal digital effect processor.
If the input channel PFL switch is on ( ), then only the PFL output from that channel is sent to the C-R OUT jacks, PHONES jacks, and level meter.

F GROUP 1-2 Fader

Adjusts the signal level sent to the GROUP OUT jacks.

B POWER Indicator

This indicator lights when the mixers power is ON.

G ST Switch

If this switch is on ( ), the signals are sent to the STEREO L/R buses via the GROUP 1-2 fader F. The Group 1 signal goes to Stereo L and the Group 2 signal goes to Stereo R.

C Level Meter

This LED meter displays the level of the signal selected by the MONITOR switch D, 2TR IN switch E and PFL switch. The 0 segment corresponds to the nominal output level. The PEAK segment lights red when the output reaches the clipping level.
H STEREO OUT Master Fader
Adjusts the signal level sent to the STEREO OUT jacks.

DIGITAL EFFECT

*Only the MG124CX has digital effects.

1 FOOT SWITCH Jack

A YAMAHA FC5 foot switch (sold separately) can be connected to this jack and used to toggle the digital effects ON and OFF.

2 PROGRAM Dial

Selects one of the 16 internal effects. See page 17 for details about the internal effects.

3 PARAMETER Control

Adjusts the parameter (depth, speed, etc.) for the selected effect. The last value used with each effect type is saved.
When you change to a different effect type, the mixer automatically restores the value that was previously used with the newly selected effect (regardless of the current position of the PARAMETER Control knob). These parameter values are reset when the power is turned off.

4 AUX Control

Adjusts the level of the signal sent from the internal digital effect unit to the AUX bus.

Troubleshooting

Power doesnt come
Is the supplied power adaptor properly plugged into an appropriate AC wall outlet? Is the supplied power adaptor properly plugged into the mixer? Are microphones, external devices, and speakers connected correctly? Are the ON switch and ST switch of the channels you are using turned ON? Are the channel GAIN controls, Channel fader, STEREO OUT master fader and GROUP 1-2 fader set to appropriate levels? Are the MONITOR switch and 2TR IN switch set properly? Are your speaker cables connected properly, or are they shorted? If the above checks do not identify the problem, call Yamaha for service. (Refer to the page 71 for a list of service centers.) Are the channel GAIN controls, Channel fader, STEREO OUT master fader and GROUP 1-2 fader set to appropriate levels? Are two different instruments connected to the XLR-type and phone jacks, or to the phone and RCA pin jacks on one channel? Please connect to only one of these jacks on each channel. Is the input signal from the connected device set to an appropriate level? Are you applying the effects at an appropriate level? Are microphones connected to the MIC input jacks on channels 1 to 7/8? If you are using condenser microphones, is the PHANTOM +48 V switch turned ON? Check that the EFFECT control on each channel is correctly adjusted. Be sure that the internal effect units ON switch is turned ON. Be sure that the EFFECT PARAMETER control and EFFECT RTN fader are correctly adjusted. Be sure that the switches are ON. Adjust the equalizers (HIGH, MID and LOW) on each channel.

No sound.

Sound is faint, distorted, or noisy.

No effect is applied.
