Product Description

MG mixers go beyond the basics to give you extensive control for a wide range of applications - with the no-compromise Yamaha sonic quality that make the MG mixers the finest in their class. Whether music is a hobby or profession, these mixers will deliver total satisfaction. Choose your 12 (6 mic) or 16 (10 mic) channel MG series mixer and get to work. These mixers feature smooth, "musical-response" 3-band EQ on all input channels, 4 busses - a stereo group bus and outputs that can be used for convenient channel grouping, in addition to the main stereo bus- plus 2 aux sends (1 pre, 1 post), and a stereo return. All mono mic input channels also feature a switchable highpass filter that can be used to cut out unwanted low-frequency noise, phantom power and an insert point. Other features include XLR & TRS main outputs, TRS group outs, stereo RCA Record outputs, and stereo TRS C-R output. MG mixers deliver great sound, total control, and superior reliability. Rackmount hardware included.

A Century of Sound Behind 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 they'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. There have been no compromises in this new line. 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 Yamaha's world-class PM-series mixing consoles. But, by taking full advantage of the latest Yamaha technology and manufacturing techniques, Yamaha has 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.

MG12/4 Mixing Console
Superlative Balance Of Sound, Size and Features

12 Input Channels
Four mono microphone/line inputs and four stereo line inputs, 2 of which offer mono microphone input capability.

6 Low-noise, High-precision Mic Preamps
Six high-performance head amplifiers that will bring out the best in any dynamic or condenser microphone.

Phantom Power
All six of the MG12/4's high-performance mic preamps feature switchable phantom power for studio condenser microphones. A single switch turns phantom power on or off for all six channels.

Insert I/O
All mono input channels feature insert I/O patch points so you can add extra signal processing to the channels as required.

4 Buses (Stereo and Group)
In addition to the main stereo bus, the MG12/4 features a stereo group bus and outputs that can be used for convenient channel grouping.

3-band Channel EQ & HPF
Smooth, "musical-response" 3-band equalizers on all input channels. 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
Two auxiliary sends on each channel - one postfader and one switchable for pre- or post-fader operation - provide plenty of flexibility for external signal processing and monitoring. A stereo auxiliary return is also provided.

Illuminated Switches
Illuminated ON (ST buss assign), PFL (Pre- Fader Listen), and phantom-power switches provide easy visual confirmation of critical console settings.

Rack Mount Adapters Included
Use your MG mixer on a desktop or mounted in a rack - the rack mount adapters are provided.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (45 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A solid performer."
Sound: The MG 12/4 has a super quiet noisefloor and a lot of useable headroom. EQ is useful and musical. The mic pre's are absolutely the best I have heard in any mixer in the $200 or less range. I use it for broadcast on internet radio, but this mixer would also be very useful for a small home studio for the purpose of producing clean sounding demos. Feature: Has all the right features and can handle all general purpose mixing situations. The connections it offers also make this mixer very universal as it employs balanced AND unbalanced input/output jacks. Quality: This mixer is built like a tank and about as heavy. The faders are fairly smooth feeling and 100mm in size - a nice professional touch. The knobs are not wobbly and have nice center detents, all the buttons are secure feeling and not loose. The blue finish is pretty nice as well. Value: Those of you considering ANY other brand of compact mixer of equal or lesser price - don't bother. Yamaha has always made excellent audio equipment and this compact mixer is no exception. Unlike some of the other brands with that silly "ALT 3-4" feature to let them masquerade as such - the MG 12/4 is a genuine 4-buss mixer. Worth the price, and then some. The Wow Factor: If the term "useful" can be substituted for the term "sexy", then on a scale of 1 to 10 - this mixer ranks a 12. Overall: The Yamaha MG12/4 will be useful to anyone that needs a quiet and respectable sounding 12x4 mixer. I would definitely buy it again.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "IF IT IS A DEMO YOU WANT; A DEMO YOU SHALL HAVE PROFESSIONAL SOUND ALL THE WAY!"
Sound: I have no toher suggestions at this time. The mixer is just what I needed and I quickly hooked it up and it is very impressive. Feature: I need extra hooks ups probably a patch board would be helpful. The mixer compnents are nice and there is nothing else extra that was not intended to use. Quality: The shipment arrived on time with everything in tact. It is easy to use and user friendly for somewho show a lack in technology. I would use it for the road, but it is best suited to be placed secure and not to be mobil. If you use it mobil, I would have a permenent rack built to keep it in place and prevent damage. Its' priomamry goal I use it for is recording and that will not be mobil as far I am concerned. The less I pack on the road the beter it is for me. Value: The price is great for a musician starting out small before going into heavy doillars. In any event, you may not want anything else unless you plan on spending thousands of dollars for equipment you already have. This mixer should meet all demands as long as you choose your tracks corectly for mix down. The mixer is wonderful and it adds a real bright feature in my studio. The appearance gives a money value that catches the eye. It is all worth every penny of it. No body should be dissatisfied about this product. You are getting your money worth and the price should meet every musicians pocket book wioth no problems and that is what sells quicker and faster, besdies your getting number one prime stuff. I would buy it again if I need too. Manufacturer Support: No problems thus far. It runs great and as I said earlier it is exactly what I needed. The Wow Factor: Already mentioned Overall: This mixer will do everything I am looking for. It is difficult to put a value on mixers when everyones taste is different when it comes to recording. I would say for the average guy that wnats to make a decent demo without going deep into your pocket, just buy reasonable products such as this mixer and you can't go wrong.
