Ah, I understand the confusion. The back panel of my mixer has 2 rows of 8 inputs. The top row is standard XLRs. The second row has the XLR with the 1/4 inch hole for guitar cables. On one stand I have 3 synths with stereo outputs. I also use one for my mono Moog Grand mother and on e for my guitar/bass. But I have other keyboards too. My old Korg Trtion Pro X for example. I have them running onto my old Tapco mixer. I guess I could just plug that into my XLR inputs. I have a stereo Behringer tube mic pre-amp too. I;m sure I can get everything to work. It's just time, effort, and life versus, well, doing it! Laziness is a life style! I'm slowly getting there! Sometimes I just want to watch TV and chill with my wife! And cats!I don't understand? The XLR inputs on both my mixers, the Yamaha and the Mackie, are the type with the centre 1/4" hole and can handle any sort of input from line levels to guitars to mics with or without phantom power,
There should be no need for DI boxes. I only use 1 DI box on the Yamaha for the connection to the computer to eliminate some stray hum.
You may wanna check your manual to see if the inputs can be switched.
