DI
Although electric guitars and
basses can be connected
directly to the mixer’s inputs,
the sound is likely to be thin
and possibly noisy. For best
results with these types of
instruments use a DI box
(direct box), guitar/bass
preamplifier, or amp simulator
between the instrument and
the mixer.
USB Cable
MW10 Owner's Manual

Quick Guide
Balanced Cables and Unbalanced Cables
Two types of cables can be used to connect microphones,
electronic instruments, and other audio sources to the
mixer’s inputs, as well as to connect the mixer’s outputs to
a power amplifier or related gear: balanced or
unbalanced. Balanced cables are highly resistant to noise,
and are the best choice for low-level signals such as the
output from microphones, as well as for long cable runs.
Unbalanced cables are generally used for short runs from
line-level sources such as synthesizers.
Step
1
3
Powering Up the System
Turn the power to all gear that is to be
connected to the MW10 off/standby
(except the computer), and set the ST
Master Level Control, Channel LEVEL
Controls, and GAIN Controls to their
minimum settings.
Cable Guidelines
English
Microphone cable:
Balanced is best.
Short line-level cables: Unbalanced cable is fine in a
relatively noise-free environment.
Long line-level cables: Balanced is best.
Connector Types
XLR Connectors
This 3-pin connector is
resistant to externally
induced noise, and is used
primarily for balanced
connections. With properly
designed receiving circuitry
cables with this type of
connector can also be used for unbalanced signals. XLR
type connectors are the standard for microphone
connections as well as most professional audio gear.
Phone Connectors
Phone connectors are
available in mono and
stereo versions. Stereo
types are also known as
"TRS" connectors
(Tip-Ring-Sleeve), and are
used for stereo headphone jacks, insert jacks, and also to
carry balanced signals in many cases. Unbalanced types
are used for mono signals —guitar cables are a common
example.
RCA Pin Connectors
This type of unbalanced
connector is most
commonly found on home
audio and video equipment.
RCA type pin jacks are
often color coded: white for
left audio channel and red for right audio channel, for
example.

To prevent loud pops and noises, turn on
the power to your sound gear starting with
the sources (instruments, CD players, etc.)
and ending with the power amplifier or
powered speakers.
Example: Instruments, microphones, and CD players
first, then the mixer, and finally the power amplifier or
powered speakers.
Observe the following precautions when turning on
phantom power.
• Make sure that the PHANTOM switch is off when phantom
power is not needed.
• Make sure that no equipment other than phantom-powered
microphones is connected to the XLR type inputs when turning
phantom power on. Applying phantom power to equipment
other than phantom-powered microphones can damage the
equipment. The exception to this rule is balanced dynamic
microphones, which can safely be left connected while phantom
power is applied to the XLR inputs.
• To minimize the possibility of speaker damage, turn phantom
power on ONLY while your power amplifier or powered speakers
are switched off. It’s also a good idea to turn the mixers output
controls—the ST Master LEVEL Control and Channel LEVEL
Controls—all the way down when turning phantom power on.

ST Master LEVEL Control
The first time you connect to the computer’s USB
connector, or change the connection to a different
USB port, a driver installation display may appear. If
this occurs, wait until the installation is complete
before proceeding.
Quick Guide

Adjusting Level and Equalization
Level Adjustment
EQ Adjustment
1
The MW10 mixer’s 3-band equalizers with independent
HIGH, MID, and LOW bands make it easy to shape the tone
of independent channels to achieve the best possible mix.
2
3
4
The first step in adjusting levels is to set
the level controls on all instruments and
other sources appropriately.
Adjust the channel GAIN controls so that
the corresponding peak indicators flash
briefly on the highest peak levels (GAIN
controls are not provided on the stereo
channels—7/8 and 9/10).
Raise the ST Master LEVEL Control to the
“E” position.
Adjust the Channel LEVEL Controls to
create the desired initial balance while
monitoring via headphones or monitor
speakers. The overall headphone level is
adjusted by the C-R/PHONES control.
Use the High-pass Filter for Microphone Input
As the name implies, a "high-pass filter" allows only signals
above a certain frequency to pass. Conversely, signals
below that "cutoff frequency" are attenuated. When an
MW10 high-pass filter is turned on, signals below 80 Hz
are attenuated. This can be useful for minimizing
low-frequency breath noise from a vocalist, as well as
handling noise, or rumble transmitted via the microphone
stand. It is generally a good idea to turn the high-pass filter
on for microphone channels.
English
Step
Equalizer Tips
The best advice that can be given regarding equalization
while recording is simply to use as little equalization as
possible. If you want a little more presence you can turn
the HIGH end up a bit. Or you can boost the bass a little if
you feel the low end is lacking. During recording it’s better
to use EQ sparingly for compensation only.

Click the Transport panel [Play] button.
Drag the channel strip faders up and

the mix as required.
The master gain fader on the right side of the window
can also be used to adjust the overall level.
Start with the Featured Part
You can start working on a mix from almost any part, but it
makes the most sense to start with the main instrument or
vocal. Set up an initial level for the main part, and then build
the rest of the mix around it.
For example, if you’re mixing a piano trio with a vocalist, begin
by setting the level of the vocal track at around the nominal
level, and then gradually add the other instruments. Your
choices will also be influenced by the type of music you are
working on. If the song is a ballad you might want to add the
piano to the mix after the vocal, and then add the bass and
drums. If it’s a more rhythmically oriented piece you could add
the bass and drums first, and then the piano. Whatever best
serves the music is right.

Drag the Pan controls on the left side of
the channel strips left and right to set the

Quick Guide
Pan Effectively
English
"Panning" creates the illusion of stereo space by changing the
relative levels of each track’s signal sent to the left and right
speakers. If a signal is sent only to the left speaker, the sound
will appear to come from the far left side of the stereo sound
field. If it sent with equal level to both left and right speakers
our ears tell us the sound is located in the center of the stage.
Judicious panning can also help to create cleaner-sounding
mixes by spreading the instruments out across the sound
stage so that they don’t "get in each other’s way." There are no
hard and fast rules, but the bass and kick drum are usually
placed in the center of the mix, as is the lead instrument or
vocal. Other instruments should be evenly balanced
throughout the sound stage in a well-balanced manner.
7
At this point you can begin to use EQ to
refine your mix, and add effects.
As an example let’s try adding reverb. Click the [Edit
VST channel] button (
) on the left side of the
channel strip to open the VST Channel Settings
window. Click No Effect → Reverb → Reverb B.
n
For further details refer to the pdf manual provided
with the Cubase LE software.
It’s a good idea to lower the channel fader a bit
before adding an effect, since the effect can cause
an increase in the overall channel level.

1 GAIN Control
Adjusts the input signal level. To get the best balance
between the S/N ratio and the dynamic range, adjust the
level so that the PEAK indicator (2) comes on only at
about maximum input level.
The –60 to –16 scale indicates the MIC input adjustment
level. The –34 to +10 scale indicates the LINE input
adjustment level.
2 PEAK Indicator
Detects the peak level of the post-EQ signal, and lights
up red when the level reaches 3 dB below the clipping
level. For XLR-equipped stereo input channels (3/4 and
5/6), detects both post-EQ and post-mic-amp peak
levels, and lights red if either of these levels reaches 3
dB below the clipping level.
n When the level of an input signal exceeds the level that
can be handled by the mixer’s head amp or equalizer,
distortion and noise will result. The PEAK indicators are
used to visually check the signal level to ensure no
overload occurs.
3
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. (But note that regardless of the switch
setting, the mixer does not apply this HPF to the line
inputs of stereo input channels.)
5 AUX Controls
Use the AUX control to send the channel’s signal to the
AUX1or AUX2 bus.
Turn the knob to the left of the “▼” mark to feed the signal
to the AUX1 bus, or to the right of the “▼” to feed to the
AUX2 bus. The volume of the feed increases as you
move the knob away from the “▼” position. If you set the
knob exactly to the “▼” position, the mixer will not send
the signal to either of the AUX buses.
Note that the signal to the AUX1 bus is a pre-fader signal,
and is not affected by the channel LEVEL controls. The
signal to the AUX2 bus is a post-fader signal, and will
always pass through the channel LEVEL controls before
moving to the bus.
If you are using stereo channels, the signals from the L
(odd)and R (even) channels are mixed and sent to the
AUX1 andAUX2 buses.
6 PAN Control (CHs 1 and 2)
PAN/BAL Control (CHs 3/4 and 5/6)
BAL Control (CHs 7/8, 9/10)
The PAN control determines the positioning of the
channel’s signal on the Stereo L and R buses.
The BAL control knob sets the balance between left and
right channels. Signals into the L input (odd channel)
feed to the Stereo L bus; signals into the R input (even
channel) feed to the Stereo R bus.
n On channels where this knob provides both PAN and
BAL controls: The knob operates as a PAN control if you
are inputting through the MIC jack or into the L (MONO)
input only, and operates as a BAL control if you are
inputting into both L and R inputs.
7 Channel LEVEL Control
Adjusts the output level of the signal being input to the
channel. Use these LEVEL Controls to adjust the volume
balance among the various channels.
n To reduce noise, set the LEVEL Control knobs for
unused channels all the way to the left (to the minimum
setting).
