Yamaha MX200-16 Operating instructions

HIBBEN SANCTUARY SOUND SYSTEM OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Prior to turning the power on, make sure all fader controls (blue controls on figure 1) on the Yamaha
Mixer are set to the fully down position to prevent any unwanted sound from being heard over the speakers
in the sanctuary, the cry room and nursery. Verify that the master “Mono”, CryRoom/Hearing Impaired,
CL&LC Feed, Choir Spkrs and M-Audio Recorder fader controls (red controls on figure 1) are set at “0”.
Turn on the power switches, which are located on the power strip mounted under the mixer table and at the
bottom of the equipment cabinet.(See Figures 3 & 4 on last page).

2. Check in the drawer located in the equipment cabinet to see if the wireless transmitters are still there.
The pastors usually pickup these units before the sound operator arrives. If they are still in the drawer, take
both units (#1-Sam and #3-Kyle) to the pastors. They will turn the units on later. The receivers for both
wireless units are located to the right of the Yamaha mixer on top of the CD/Tape player. Both wireless
receivers power up automatically when the power strip is turned on.

3. Recording a Church Service using the M-Audio MicroTrack 24/96
Verify that the yellow microphone cable located on the recording cabinet is plugged into the left (L)
Input Jack (#10).
a. Press the Power Button (#1) until the LCD display (#2) lights up.
b. Plug the power cable into the USB Input (#14).
Warning: Plugging in the USB power before turning on the Microtrack may place the unit in
“Connect to PC mode” and will not record anything.
c. Press the Record Button (#8) PRIOR TO THE START OF SERVICE to begin recording to a new
file.
d. Monitor the recording level on the LCD Display (#2). If the Clip Indicators (#3) flash red during
the service, temporarily decrease the input level using either Input Leveler (#4).
e. When finished recording, press the Record Button (#8) to stop recording.
f. Turn off the M-Audio MicroTrack by pressing and holding the Power Button (#1).
g. When done, unplug the power cable.

4. Alternate Recording Method using the ONKYO TA-RW411 Tape Deck
Unless you see a blank cassette tape along with a note on the table, this method of recording will not be used.
If used, press the EJECT button on tape deck A and insert the cassette tape in the holder and close the access
door. Verify that DECK A is selected by observing the display. Press RESET button to return the tape
counter to 0000. Press the / button for deck A to put the deck into the rec/pause mode. Just prior to the
12 Oct 2006
2
service starting, press the Play button to start recording. The ONKYO TA-RW411 tape deck
automatically reverses when the end of side A is reached if the REVERSE MODE is selected. Therefore,
there is no need to flip the cassette if the end of side A is reached. The input audio level to the recorder is
controlled by the REC OUT control on the Yamaha Mixer. During the service, observe the peak level (red
segments should only be lit during very loud passages) indicator on the recorder to ensure a signal is present
and at the proper level. For simultaneous recording of 2 cassettes using both decks, refer to the instruction
manual.
5. Prior to the start of the service, check that all mikes are working by momentarily pressing the PFL button
above each fader, in turn, to check that background noise is heard in the mixer’s headset. To release each
PFL button, press it again before moving on to the next channel. Do this for the pulpit, choir left, choir right,
piano, and soloist mikes (if being used). The pastors’ wireless transmitter units (wireless #1 and #3) will not
be on at this time. Make sure that all PFL buttons are in the “out” (not depressed) position.
6. Each channel on the Yamaha MX200-12 mixer is clearly marked (See Figure 1). The only controls that
the operator is required to change are the channel fader controls located at the bottom of the mixer. The blue
faders are the ones usually used during a worship service. DO NOT ADJUST ANY OTHER CHANNEL
CONTROLS. Each channel is marked with the location of the microphone being fed to that particular
channel. The first fader control to be adjusted will be the “Pulpit” mike. Set it at “0” before the service
begins. As the Lay Reader approaches the pulpit to make announcements, start the tape recorder by pressing
the Record Button (#8) on the M-Audio Recorder (or if used, the Play button on ONKYO).
NOTE: Do not move the fader control for the wireless units from the minimum (fully
down) position until the pastor(s) has entered the sanctuary.
7. You will be able to tell when the pastor(s) turn their transmitters on by observing the lights on the front
panels of each receiver. Make sure that the yellow lights on both Shure receivers are on before the pastor(s)
enter the sanctuary. If they are not on, inform the pastor(s).
8. The pulpit mike fader control is set at approximately “0” when the Lay Reader or anyone else besides
Rev. Sam & Rev. Kyle are at the pulpit. To prevent sound quality degradation, the pulpit mike and the
wireless mikes should never simultaneously pick up the pastor’s voice. Always reduce the setting of
the Rev. Kyle’s fader control whenever he is singing.
NOTE: Both Rev. Sam & Rev. Kyle always uses their wireless units even when they are at the
pulpit. Use the following table as a guide for appropriate fader settings. Only use the pulpit
mike if it is apparent that the wireless units are not working.

NOTE: The pastors also use their wireless units during baptisms, children’s time,
communion, when introducing new members into the church and when giving the
benediction. The operator must remain alert to these occasions and move the
appropriate fader control to “0”.
9 Observe the LED VU indicator lights (marked “MONO”) on the top right side of the mixer console. The
lights should fluctuate with the voice and the fader controls should be adjusted so that the yellow lights are
illuminated only on loud passages by the choir. If the red lights come on, reduce the setting of the fader
control. The general rule of thumb is to adjust the signal so that the first three or four green lights are
illuminated on voice peaks. This usually coincides with a channel fader control setting of “0”. Adjust
slightly up or down as required for soft or loud mike pickups.
10. The two choir mike controls (left and right) are set to “0” only when the choir is singing and also when
the organ is being played. The choir fader controls should be kept in the fully down position at all other
times. These mikes are very sensitive and readily pick up coughing, and other unwanted sounds. When the
choir is performing an anthem, only the choir mikes and piano mike should be “on”. All other microphone
fader controls should be in the fully down position (unless a solo is being performed too) to prevent
feedback. A good rule of thumb – IF A MICROPHONE IS NOT BEING USED, ITS FADER
SHOULD BE IN THE FULLY DOWN POSITION. REMEMBER – IF ALL MICROPHONES
COULD BE LEFT ON, WE WOULDN’T NEED AN OPERATOR.
11. The Piano mike fader control is set at approximately “0” whenever the piano is being played. If the piano
appears to be louder than the choir or soloist, reduce the fader level accordingly. The sound operator must
pay close attention to the service to see if Norma or Pam is seated at the piano. Norma usually plays during
hymns and Pam usually accompanies the choir during Anthems. Whether the piano or organ will be used for
the anthem is not published, so the operator must remain alert to prevent missing part of the piano
performance.
12. The two Soloist mike fader controls are set at approximately “0” whenever a vocal or instrumental solo is
performed. Again, the operator does not always get the word ahead of time, so you must stay alert. When
no soloist are performing, the two soloist microphone fader controls should be in the fully down
position
13. At the end of the service, when the choral response has ended, all channel fader controls are placed in the
fully down position and the M-Audio Record button is pressed to stop recording. Then turn-off the M-Audio
MicroTrack by pressing and holding the Power Button (#1). If used, the tape is stopped ( ), rewound (
), ejected, placed in the cassette case and left on the table. Cut the mixer table power switch located
beneath the table and the toggle switch located at the bottom of the equipment rack to their OFF positions.
14. It is recommended that the operator obtain a copy of the current church bulletin and note the order of
events which are planned for the service. This will prevent most surprises from occurring. Always be alert
to variations in the service.
15. Retrieve the wireless units from both pastors (making sure that their power switches are in the OFF
position) and return them to the equipment rack drawer.
16. Turn off lights and lock sound room door.
