Product Description

With Yamaha's MW10C USB Mixing Studio mixers, making great music is easier than ever before. Combined with the powerful Cubase AI4 audio/MIDI sequencing software, the MW series provides a comprehensive tabletop studio setup for the solo recording musician and for the traveling producer/arranger. Connect the MW to a USB terminal on your laptop or desktop computer, and you've got an instant, high-quality audio recording studio at your command. The MW delivers true plug-and-play USB audio input/output interfacing-without the need for special software drivers-and lets you easily record mono inputs or two- track stereo mixes of multiple sources to your computer.

Easy-to-use 1-Knob Compression

Compression-the taming of wildly varying levels in vocals, bass and guitar-is one of the most important effects used in recording and mixing. It is also one of the most subtle and difficult to use. Not with the MW series mixers, however. The innovative 1-knob analog compressor (on the mono input channels) lets you dial in just the amount of compression you need in recording, without having to set multiple parameters like threshold, ratio and makeup gain. One knob does it all for you-instantly giving you great, punchy sound.

Easy-access Panel and High-Quality Parts

Top-mounted input and output connectors make setting up and re-patching your system quick and easy. Both models feature high-quality Neutrik balanced XLR connectors for the microphone inputs. Long-throw, smooth-action faders give you precise and tactile control over signal levels. The mixer also has a bright and large 12-segment LED meter for visual signal indication.

Flexible 10-channel Configuration

The MW10C gives you a total of eight inputs, including four ultra-low-noise mic preamps, plus an additional stereo channel for a total of ten inputs. The high-performance balanced microphone inputs also have a phantom power switch, allowing you to take advantage of the superior sonic quality of professional-level condenser microphones.

Monitor Mix

This convenient feature gives you simple control over the balance between the signals being recorded and the playback signals being monitored. This is particularly helpful when recording several sources at the same time, letting you use a single knob to adjust the balance of the playback and recording signals for monitoring purposes. Naturally, this doesn't affect the recording level; it simply allows you to control what you want to hear.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Keep it Real!"
Sound: The sound is excellent! it has a very 'Clear'sound not that hissin sound. My vocals are more clear & drum sounds seem to hit harder. Compared to others i've owned this one is the best so far! Feature: I like the compression & built-in effects, I don't use the effect all the time, but always good to have. All of the features fit my needs Ease of Use: For me,It was a quick 'glance'at the manual,and it was ON! I think most people like easy to use equipment, that way you can get right to work! Quality: This product is very-well built for my needs,everything was intact when i purchased it, No problems at all.I use this product for Home Recording only,So i won't have any wear&tear issues. Value: Worth the price! Manufacturer Support: The best Support, is NOT needing it! The Wow Factor: I like the 'Heavy feel'the colored knobs are cool& sturdy. Also having the right amount of inputs! Overall: I chose this product because of past Yamaha products i've owned , the names is "Quality" I liked everything about this product.I will keep this product until it dies, then buy another!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good basic mixer."
Sound: It does its job well and is relatively quiet. Feature: The supplied Cubase SW was useless to me as it needed newer operating system than my Mac had. I have used the SW it with GarageBand and it works, but I record on a digital recorder so it made no difference to me. The one knob compression is great for amateurs like me, I guess a sound engineer would probably like a conventional compression solution. Phantom power is a nice touch and it has plenty of inputs and outputs which should satisfy most home studios or live performance needs. It has all the basic mixer adjustments anyone needs. It lacks effects, but not many mixers have effects anyway. Ease of Use: Super easy. The manual stinks, but it is not really needed. Cubase is another story, but I don't use it. Quality: Usual Yamaha quality. Compared to other non-professional music hardware, this unit is tops. I own BOSS and Korg equipment and this Yamaha mixer is far metallic and sturdy. The faders are far more solid feeling, for example. Value: The unit is a good buy. Manufacturer Support: Never needed it, so a 10 is in order. The Wow Factor: It is not "sexy". It doesn't have effects built in like the Behringer unit nor does it provide much more than basic, but quiet mixing capability, but it is a high quality product for the price. Overall: I probably will not grow out of it as it does a very basic job which cannot really be improved upon unless there will be a need for additional inputs, and that is not likely. The pre-amps, which are the downfall of most mixers, are adequate and to improve on them you would need to spend $750 plus for any discernible improvement.
