Fast STAGEPAS Setups

How to set up your STAGEPAS 1K for solo performers, presenters and DJs.

Part 1 of this series gave an overview of the mixer functions and interconnection options offered by the Yamaha STAGEPAS 1K PA system. In Part 2, we described making Bluetooth® connection to the STAGEPAS for wireless streaming and control. In this installment, we’ll present three videos that show you how to quickly and easily set up your STAGEPAS system if you’re a solo performer, presenter, teacher or DJ.

In this first video, Yamaha product manager John Schauer demonstrates the simple steps required to use your STAGEPAS 1K if you’re a solo performer: just connect your microphone with a single cable for vocals, and add an input for guitar or other instrument. He also discusses the functionality of the Hi-Z switch and the use of an optional footswitch to mute onboard effects between songs so you can talk to the audience without reverb or echo on your voice:

Finally, John takes you through the steps required for connecting your DJ system. As he explains, you can use a single STAGEPAS 1K for small events, or expand to dual STAGEPAS 1Ks for larger events where extra coverage is required — a setup that can also provide full stereo sound at the push of a button.
