Hello DJ CEE

 

I havent picked up the manual but i assume the following

 

aux knobs could be for controlling the level of internal/external effect per channel with a master send and return somewhere else

 

phantom power is for powering professional studio mics, you dont need to use it with standard mics

 

effects setting like small room large hall etc are probably preset effects with reverb / delay etc

 

depth and repeat usually applies to reverb and delays and with depth being the ammount of reverb

 

send is how much dry signal you literally send to effects

 

Hope this helps - if you cant figure the manual out its a case of practice at low vol levels just in case you end up pushing too hard a signal

 

A little bit of effect can be useful on a karaoke singers voice but dont use anything in venues with natural reverb and dont over do it as you will easily get fedback and a wall of noise

never put phantom power on, unless you know what it is

 

you could end up frying your mics or other equipment

 

How so?

 

What about desks that have global phantom power but don't use all condenser mics or passive DI's? Surely these desks would've destroyed lots of kit over the years they've been around if they could damage stuff if left on. The main reason for turning it off if not needed is to stop the popping you get when connecting and disconnecting kit.

 

To be clear, correctly functioning phantom power will not hurt your regular dynamic microphones.
