Product DescriptionA Century of Sound Behind Six Superlative Mixers
Yamaha is an unusual company. There are very few others who can claim "total music involvement," but that is Yamaha's position. They've been making fine musical instruments for more than 100 years, industry-leading sound reinforcement mixers for more than 30 years, and cutting-edge digital mixers and music production gear for 15 years. In sound-reinforcement terms, 30 years is a very long time. In fact, 30 years is roughly equal to the total history of sound reinforcement (the term "sound reinforcement" wasn't even used back then - it was still "PA"), and we've been there the entire time. Innovating, leading, and in many ways defining the development of modern mixing consoles.
They're still at it. Yamaha is proud to introduce the Yamaha MG-series mixing consoles, featuring six models ranging in size from a small 10-channel/2-bus unit right up to a very flexible 32-channel/14-bus type with an impressive selection of built-in effects. There have been no compromises. The MG mixers are built for great sound, total control, and superior reliability. In fact, they undergo the same rigorous quality and reliability tests as our world-class PM-series mixing consoles. But, by taking full advantage of the latest Yamaha technology and manufacturing techniques, we have been able to pack these superlative mixers with more value than you'll find anywhere else. In short, they offer extraordinary performance and mixing power at remarkable prices.
If you need a high-performance analog mixer for music production or sound reinforcement, the Yamaha MG Series is the first - and last - place you should look.
Just the Basics - With Class
If you simply need to mix a few sources to stereo - but insist on the finest audio quality available - the MG10/2 is probably the way to go. It's compact and convenient to use, but won't compromise your signal in any way. With an optional adapter, the MG10/2 can even be mounted on a microphone stand for totally flexible positioning and easy access. For demo and music production in your personal studio, for band rehearsal or small sound reinforcement applications, or simply as a super utility mixer for any application, you can't lose with the MG10/2.
10 Input Channels
The MG10/2 features a total of 10 input channels: 2 mono microphone/line inputs and 4 stereo line inputs, 2 of which offer mono microphone input capability.
4 Low-noise, High-precision Mic Preamps
The microphone preamps provided on the 2 mono channels and 2 of the 4 stereo channels would be worth the price of the entire mixer if packaged separately. These are high-performance head amplifiers that will bring out the best in any dynamic or condenser microphone.
So you can take advantage of the superior sonic quality of professional-class studio condenser microphones, all 4 of the MG10/2's high performance mic preamps feature switchable phantom power. A single switch turns phantom power on or off for all 4 channels.
Mono input channels feature insert I/O patch points so you can add compressors, EQ, or other extra signal-processing to the channels as required.
3-band Channel EQ & HPF
Designed for smooth, "musical" response, the 3-band equalizers provided on all input channels are 1 more sonic tool you can use to create clean, professional mixes. All mono microphone input channels also feature a switchable highpass filter that can be used to cut out unwanted low-frequency noise.
2 Aux Sends & Stereo Aux Return
The MG10/2 is also fully equipped to handle external effects and monitor systems. Use the post-fader auxiliary sends in conjunction with the stereo auxiliary returns to add reverb, delay, or other external effects to the mix, and the prefader sends to feed a separate mix to your monitor system.
Optional Mic Stand Mount
What could be more convenient than having your mixer mounted on a microphone stand for freedom of placement and easy access? With the optional BMS-10A Mic Stand Adaptor you can do just that, and have your sonic control center within easy reach all the time.
