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.
Extensive Creative Control in the Studio or on Stage
The mid-range MG models go beyond the basics to give you extensive control for a wide range of applications and 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. If you don't need effects, or already have an arsenal of outboard favorites, the MG12/4 or MG16/4 may offer all the capacity and capabilities you need. But if the idea of having some of the finest effects available built right into the console appeals to you, then consider the effect enabled MG16/6FX.
No Outboard Signal-processing Gear Required!
16 Input Channels
Eight mono microphone/line inputs and 4 stereo line inputs. Two of the stereo inputs also offer mono microphone input capability.
10 Low-noise, High-precision Mic Preamps
Ten high-performance head amplifiers offer superior performance with any dynamic or condenser microphone.
All ten mic preamps feature switchable phantom power for phantom-powered studio condenser microphones. A single switch turns phantom power on or off for all 10 channels.
All mono input channels feature insert I/O patch points so you can add extra signalprocessing 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 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.
