19MXR QUICK START INSTRUCTIONS
MASTER LEVEL - Use this level to control your main volume output. Try never to send an output of
more than +4dB to your system. Signal at levels higher than this will start to distort and may cause
damage to your system and speakers. Remember that a distorted signal from you mixer will only be
multiplied throughout your system.
CHANNEL GAIN LEVEL - The channel gain levels are not to be used as volume controls. Never use
the channel trim to set the output volume. These controls are used to aid in distortion control. Use
these control to preset your signal level before the crossfader. With your channel faders in the maximum position, use the channel trim level to set an average output level of about +4dB on you master
level meter.
HEADPHONES - To avoid damaging your headphones always be sure the headphone volume level (6)
is set to minimum before plugging them in. To avoid sever hearing damage, never put the headphone
on without making sure the headphone level is turned down.
MAIN MIC - The main mic connector uses a combo plug that allows you to connect either a 1/4”
unbalanced jack or by a standard 3-pin XLR balanced connector. The main mic also has an independent volume control. When feedback occurs when using the mic, try lowering the level this may reduce
the feedback. Always leave the mic level to it’s minimum level when not in use. Note: We recommend
that you use a 500-600ohm microphone for the best sound quality.
CHANNEL LINE LEVEL SELECTOR SWITCHES - This switch is used to change the selected input
from phono to line and vice versa. The switch selectors are on the rear panel.

19MXR CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS cont.
left side of the mixer. Samples 4-6 are stored under Cue buttons 1-3 located on the right side of the board. The
Controller Mode Button LED will blink when the Sampler is active.
10. MASTER VOLUME LEVEL INDICATORS - The dual MASTER LEVEL LED indicators are used to detail the
master output level. The meters will detail the output level of both the left and right channels.
11. CUE MIXING CONTROL - This functions allows you to monitor the Cue level as well as the Program (main
output) level in your headphones. A channels Cue Level may only be monitored if the channels CUE (4) function is selected. To select a channels cue function press the CUE BUTTON (4) that is directly associated with
the specific channel you wish to monitor. You may use the mixing function to blend both the Cue level and the
Program level together. You can vary the output level to either hear more or less of either of the two levels.
Turning the Cue Mixing knob to the CUE position (left) will allow you to hear more of the Cue level. Turning the
knob to the PGM position (right) will allow you to hear more of the Program level (main output). You may also
use the Cue Mixing Control to hear either the Cue level or the Program level exclusively. If the knob is in the
full CUE position you will only hear the cue level, if the knob is in the full PGM position you will only hear the
main output. This function is especially useful when mixing without an monitor. 12. HEADPHONE JACK - This jack is used to connect your headphones to the mixer allowing you to monitor
the cue source. Use headphones only rated at 8 ohms to 32 ohms. Most DJ headphones are rated at 16 ohm,
these are highly recommended. Always be sure the CUE LEVEL VOLUME (6) is set to minimum before you put
the headphones on.
13. CHANNEL VOLUME FADER - These faders are used to control the output signal of any source assigned
to its particular channel. However, master volume is controlled by the MASTER VOLUME CONTROL (7).
14. FEATHER FADER PLUS CROSSFADER - This fader is used to blend the output signals of channels one
and two together. When the fader is in the full left position (channel 1), the output signal of channel one will be
controlled by the master volume level. The same fundamentals will apply for channel two. Sliding the fader from
one position to another will vary the output signals of channels one and two respectively. When the crossfader
is set in the center position, the output signals of both the channels one and channels two will be even.
15. FADER ASSIGN KNOB - This knob assigns a channel to the CROSSFADER (14). When a channel is
assigned to the left side of the CROSSFADER (14) that channels output level is routed to and controlled by the
CROSSFADER (14). Sliding the CROSSFADER (14) to left position will send the volume output of the assigned
channel to the MASTER VOLUME LEVEL (7), siding the CROSSFADER (14) to right position will cut that channels volume to MASTER VOLUME LEVEL (7). The reverse is true for the right channel fader assign switch. When
the assign switch is set to the “OFF” position the crossfader will have no function.
16. CROSSFADER CURVE ADJUSTMENT - This rotary knob is used to change the way the crossfader will
operate. The crossfader can operate in different modes, “NORMAL CURVE”, “QUICK CURVE” or any variation
of the two. (Quick Curve usually used for scratching).
17. CUE, SYNC, PITCH BEND, & PLAY/PAUSE CUE 1, 2, & 3 - These buttons will set or trigger hot cue 1, 2, or 3.

monitor any source connected to these jacks.
26. RCA MASTER OUTPUTS - The Master Output includes a pair XLR BALANCED JACKS (28) as well as
a pair of RCA Unbalanced Jacks. The RCA jacks send a low current unbalanced output signal. These jacks
should only be used for shorter cable runs to signal processors or looping to another mixer. For cable runs
greater than 15 feet use the XLR BALANCED JACKS (28).
27. BOOTH OUTPUTS - The VMS4 offers a secondary output usually used to monitor your mix or to route
to an outboard recording device. This output has independent volume control “Booth” knob.
28. BALANCED XLR MASTER OUTPUT JACKS - The Master Output includes a pair of XLR Balanced jacks
as well as a pair of RCA UNBALANCED JACKS (26). The 3-pin XLR jacks send a high current balanced
output signal. These jacks should be used when you will be driving an amp or other audio equipment with
a balanced input, or whenever you will be running a signal line greater than 15 feet. Always, use these jacks
whenever possible.
29. USB PORT - Connect to your computer for MIDI interface and USB interface (audio in and outs).
30. MAIN POWER SWITCH - This is the main power ON/OFF button. Before main power is applied, be
sure you have made all connections to the mixer. Also be sure your amplifier(s) is(are) tuned off. Remember
to avoid damaging pops to the speakers, the mixer is turned on first and turned off last.
31. AC CONNECTION - This connector is used to supply main power to the unit via the included detachable power cord. The power connection uses an I.E.C. type connector, use only the supplied, polarized AC
power cord. Use only a power cord that matches this type of connection. Be sure to only connect this unit
to a power outlet that matches the printed power label on the unit. Never use a power cord when the ground
prong has been removed or broken off. The ground prong is used to reduce the risk of electrical shock in
case of an electrical short. This cord is designed to fit in one direction only. Do not attempt to force a cord if
it does not fit, be sure the cord is being inserted properly.
FUSE HOLDER – This housing stores the 10 amp GMA protective fuse. Always replace with the exact same
type fuse, unless otherwise instructed, by an authorized American Audio® service technician. Replacing with
any other type of fuse than that of the recommended fuse will void your unit warranty.

Speaker Cables
Typical Balanced Output Set-up
This image details a typical stereo output layout. Note the use of the Balanced XLR Jacks on both
the mixer and the amplifier. Always use the balanced output jacks whenever possible. The balanced
output jacks should always be used for cable runs in excess of 15 feet.
Using the balanced jacks will ensure a clean signal through out the entire audio system.

Audio® - www.americanaudio.us - 19MXR Instruction Manual Page 17
19MXR CLEANING
Due to fog residue, smoke, and dust, cleaning the mixer should be carried out periodically to residue
build up. 1. Use normal glass cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the outside casing.
2. Use a cleaner specially designed for electronics to spray in and around the knobs and switch. This will reduce small particle built up that can effect the proper operation of the mixer.
3. Cleaning should be carried out every 30-60 days to prevent heavy built up.
4. Always be sure to dry all parts completely before plugging the mixer in.
Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the mixer operates (i.e. smoke, fog residue,
dust, dew).
19MXR CROSS FADER REPLACEMENT
The crossfader is “Hot Swapable” which means it may be replaced at any time, even when power is
applied. Only replace with American Audio Part Feather Fader Plus. Replacing with any other model
fader may seriously damage your mixer.
Replacing the Crossfader:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Disconnect the mixers main power supply
Using a number two Phillips screw driver, unscrew the each of the stainless steel retain screws that hold the crossfader in place.
Gently remove the crossfader from its seated position. You may need to wiggle the crossfader slightly to remove it.
After removing the crossfader, disconnect the ribbon cable that attaches the crossfader to the PC board. Grasp the crossfader by its base and pull the ribbon cable by its connector not the actual cables. The connector is designed to only fit one way, so don’t worry about the connec
tors orientation.
Connect the new crossfader to the ribbon cable and replace in reverse order.
