Quantum control of stationary multi-color (MC) light fields in resonant medium with multi-Λ scheme of atomic transition is proposed. We have found the general analytical solution in the adiabatic limit of quantum evolution resulting from the interaction of the slow probe light with the new fields generated in the nondegenerate multi-wave mixing scheme. We have found a critical condition for the stopping and quantum manipulation of the MC-light fields where the united light group velocity can be reduced down to zero with optimal spectral parameters while preserving the delicate quantum correlations of the initial probe light pulse. The manipulations, which provide the effective transference of quantum probe light to the new multifrequency light fields have been analyzed.
