Hello good people! Long time no see.
Taken a bit of a break from drumming for various reasons, but recently got a 'We're putting the band back together (for a friend's 50th)!' call, so have been blowing out the cobwebs recently.

One thing I definitely need to do is figure out is exactly how my mixer works. Still not sure why I ended up buying the PA, but I've got a basic system : a Yamaha MG166CX mixer, Alto main speakers and some Laney foldback, but to be honest on the few occasions I've used it, it's been a bit hit and miss, and we never used to use foldback (I've only recently picked up the Laneys).

What I'm looking for is an idiot's guide to using the mixer - I understand most of it, but I still don't feel confident with the Aux outs for on-stage monitor mixing. For example, there appears to be three Aux controls, two 'regular' and one for the onboard digital effects. That says to me that I could have two, and no more, seperate mixes on stage, even if I had more monitors.

So why are there seemingly four Aux output jacks?

I'm sure it's all pretty simple really, and once I've got it, I'll be away, but I hate not understanding.

Very much a case of 'some of the gear and no idea!'

Any advice or pointers towards a decent online guide or book would be much appreciated!
