Yamaha has always strived to provide sound engineers with the purest possible signal instead of added processing or color to give it a "signature" sound, and the MG Series is no exception. Embracing this philosophy of transparent sound, these mixing consoles deliver a level of sonic purity and sound quality that is unmatched in their class. D-PRE (Discrete Class-A Mic Preamps).This is where it all starts. Everything you do as a sound engineer is dependent on the quality of your preamps, which determines the direction your mix will take, and ultimately how good it is going to sound.
MG Series mixing consoles feature Yamaha's studio-grade discrete class-A D-PRE preamps, which utilize an inverted Darlington circuit comprising two cascading transistors in a configuration that provides more power with lower impedance. Delivering fat, natural sounding bass and smooth, soaring highs, with very low distortion, D-PRE preamps possess an impressively wide frequency range that allow them to handle signal from any audio source without overly amplifying any specific elements of the sound. Having such a pure sonic platform to build on will ultimately save you time and effort by eliminating the need for excessive EQing or additional effects processing in order to "fix" your mix.
The head amp determines sound quality, and op-amp integrated circuits are one of the most important parts in the head amp circuit. MG01 op-amps feature redesigned circuitry in which even the internal components and wiring have been optimized, and use materials such as high-quality silicon wafers and copper wire to achieve superb resolution. Switchable Phantom Power & PAD Switch. With phantom power, MG Series consoles allow you to take full advantage of the greater frequency response and high sound quality of condenser microphones.
The input channel with PAD switch accepts MIC to line level of inputs, PAD Switch attenuates high input signals that often accompany mic'ed instruments during performance, avoiding the clipping that can seriously affect your mix. When was the last time you heard guitar without EQ or a completely unprocessed vocal on one of your favorite songs? Yamaha mixers are famous for their flat response and sonic purity, but it often takes more than a perfectly-captured instrumental performance or vocal to achieve a professional-sounding mix.
Equipped with some of the same state-of-the-art functionality featured on Yamaha's high-end consoles, the MG Series gives you the tools you need to produce high quality sound that is uniquely your own. Compression plays an essential role in just about any recording or sound reinforcement environment by altering the level of dynamics of an audio signal when you need livelier guitars, punchier bass lines, a tighter snare, or a cleaner vocal sound. However, it can take countless hours to master the complexities of even the most basic outboard compression units and use them effectively. Originally a Yamaha innovation, 1-knob compressors are now an industry standard that gives you instant access to optimized compression settings via a single rotary control.There's nothing more useful than reliable equalization when you need nuanced management of your tone. The MG Series benefits from Yamaha's unparalleled experience in designing pro audio gear, featuring 3-band equalizers on all mono channels for precise control of your sound. High-pass filters allows you to eliminate unwanted low-frequency noise, for a smoother, cleaner mix.
AUX / Effect Sends / Group. MG Series mixers feature AUX sends for expanding your sound reinforcement or recording setup, allowing you accommodate additional effects, output to external recording devices, or feed a monitoring system.(except for MG06 / 06X) Master send controls are also provided. The MG06 / 06X, MG10 / 10X / 10XU / 10XUF and MG12XUK have a single stereo bus. All other models additionally feature one or two stereo group buses and outputs that can be used for convenient channel grouping. Assign switches for the stereo and group buses are located next to each channel fader.
A variety of input / output connectors. All models feature high-quality NeutrikT balanced XLR connectors on mono microphone/line channels and XLR equipped stereo channels. Each of the mono inputs is equipped with combo jack and accepts both MIC and LINE level signals. (except for MG10 / 10X / 10XU / 10XUF / 12XUK) The function of the additional two stereo channels vary depending on model: With MG20 / 20XU, XLR accepts MIC level signal and two RCA connectors accepts LINE level signals and can be used either mono or stereo. Additionally, each of the stereo channel features 2TR in (RCA connectors) and can be used as independent input from external audio sources such as CDs.With XU models, any incoming source that are sent via USB can be assigned to one of the stereo channel. Easy-to-read LED level metering allows output levels to be monitored with precision. For musical and non-musical applications alike, effects processing adds polish and professionalism to the mix. The MG X / XU models feature Yamaha's acclaimed SPX digital multi-effect processor, offering a comprehensive suite of 24 editable digital effects perfect for enhancing your mix, whether adding depth to a speaking engagement or breathing new color and atmosphere into a live band performance.
In particular, the high-quality reverb and delay expand the spatial quality of the sound with remarkable realism and naturalness. You can even connect an optional FC5 foot switch for effect on / off control. (MG10X / 10XU / 10XUF / 12X / 12XU / 12XUK / 16X / 16XU / 20XU).
MG06X features six SPX effects REVERB HALL / ROOM / PLATE, DELAY SHORT / LONG / VO. ECHO, which are not editable. For gigging, recording, and installed applications alike, your console can be subjected to a wide range of environmental conditions and hazards. Excessive humidity, unstable power supplies, and the rigors of road travel in general can take a serious toll on a mixing console, often causing expensive, time-consuming repairs, and reducing its lifespan. The MG Series has been redesigned with an emphasis on durability, incorporating practical features that offer greater flexibility while ensuring peak performance for many years to come.Built to last, MG Series mixers feature a rugged, impact-resistant, powder-coated metal chassis, offering an unrivalled level of durability. With a sleek design contoured for optimal convection cooling, the internal layout separates the power supply from the analog circuitry for superior noise reduction, and further extends the life of the components inside. To further ensure reliable performance, knob control placement above the surface of the chassis diverts any impact or pressure on the knobs to the chassis itself and not the circuit board or components underneath. Thanks to a highly-efficient internal universal power supply, MG Series consoles offer worry-free operation in any region around the globe-even in environments prone to potentially damaging power fluctuations. An internal power supply also simplifies rack mounting of the console for installed applications, eliminating the need for a bulky adapter or additional connections. (MG12 / 16 / 20 / 12X / 16X / 12XU / 16XU / 20XU). Easily adaptable to a diverse range of installed and portable applications, the 16- and 20- channel models of the MG Series included rack ears, giving you the option of a rack-mounted or desk-top configuration. Extremely durable, their sleek design makes safe, stable placement of your console hassle-free, keeping setup time and effort to a minimum.
(MG16 / 20 / 16X / 16XU / 20XU). Optional Rackmount kit "RK-MG12" available for MG12 / 12X / MG12XU. Optional Mic stand Adapter "BMS10-A" available for MG06 / 06X / 10 / 10X / 10XU.
The main stereo outputs feature XLR type connectors that lock to prevent accidental disconnection. Rugged and dependable, these professional connectors ensure providing stable signal transmission even in the most demanding environments.
The MG Series features the same digital connectivity that is used to streamline the recording process on Yamaha's professional-level mixing consoles. Take advantage of state-of-the-art digital technology that makes it easier than ever to plug-in, play, record, and then listen to your creations. 24-bit /192kHz 2-in/2-out USB Audio Interface Function.
MG Series mixing consoles feature flexible digital connectivity for quick and easy high resolution playback of digital content. Simply connect to your PC via USB, or to your iPhone / iPad (2 or later) using Apple's Camera Connection Kit / Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. The USB protocol uses asynchronous data transfer. Audio data is transferred based on highly precise audio clock signal from the MG, for high quality recording and playback.
