Rehearsal: How to use the mixer FX section?

If your mixer is an Alto Live 1202:

  1. Follow all steps of this guide, to correctly set up a mic/instrument with the mixer.

  2. Turn up the DFX RTN slider, in the bottom right corner of the mixer, and set it to the white area. This works as the main effect control for all channels on the mixer. Make sure its mute button is off.

     

  3.  Using the rotary knob, choose an effect (or Preset) on the Alesis DFX section. Each effect group (eg. 00-09, 10-19, 20-29 etc.) contains one effect which gets more intense the higher the number we choose. Example: if we pick Delay (00-09), setting the rotary knob to 00 will apply a small amount of effect to our instruments, whereas 09 will apply the largest amount. You can set it to a /8 or /9 value.



  4. Now, on the instrument channels we want to apply the effect on, turn up the DFX knob to the desired amount.

     

  5. The FX is now being applied to your mic/instrument(s).

 

 

If your mixer is a Proel MQ12USB:

  1. Follow all steps of this guide, to correctly set up a mic/instrument with the mixer.

  2. On the FX section, turn up the white FX slider to the "0" position. This is the main FX control for all channels on the mixer. Make sure the mute button is off.



  3. Using the rotary knob, pick the effect/preset you need. Choose a /8 or /9 value [Why so? See Step 3 above].

  4. On the mic/instrument channels we want to apply the effect on, turn up the white Aux 2 FX Post knob to your liking.



  5. The FX is now being applied to your mic/instrument(s).
