Yamaha MG12XU 12-Channel Mixer with USB and Effects

Yamaha has always strived to provide sound engineers with the purest possible signal. Instead of adding processing or colour to give models a “signature” sound, the MG12XU instead focuses on pure clarity. MG mixing consoles deliver a level of sonic purity unmatched.

D-PRE (Discrete Class-A Mic Preamps)

Above all, everything you do as a sound engineer is dependent on the quality of your preamps. MG Series mixing consoles and MG12XU feature Yamaha’s studio-grade discrete class-A D-PRE preamps. These amps utilize an inverted Darlington circuit comprising two cascading transistors. They are in a configuration that provides more power with lower impedance.

The Audio You Need

The MG12XU amps deliver fat, natural-sounding bass and smooth, soaring highs, with very low distortion. D-PRE preamps possess an impressively wide frequency range that allows them to handle signals from anywhere. It does so without overly amplifying any specific elements of the sound. Having such a pure sonic platform will ultimately save you time and effort mixing.

High-Quality Sound Op-Amp

MG Series mixers feature new, high-quality, custom-made MG01 op-amps. Many other Op-amps prioritize electrical efficiency, Yamaha worked directly with the semiconductor manufacturer to focus on sound quality first. MG01 op-amps feature redesigned circuitry in which even the internal components and wiring have been optimised. They 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’d instruments during performance, avoiding the clipping that can seriously affect your mix.

MG12XU – Your sound.

Yamaha mixers are famous for their flat response and sonic purity. But often, it 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.

1-Knob Compressors

Undoubtedly, compression plays an essential role by altering the level of dynamics of an audio signal. 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 optimised compression settings via a single rotary control.

EQ and High-Pass Filters

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, the MG12XU features 3-band equalizers on all mono channels for precise control of your sound. A high-pass filter allows you to eliminate unwanted low-frequency noise, for a smoother, cleaner mix.

MG12XU’s Variety of Input/Output Connectors

All models feature high-quality Neutrik™ balanced XLR connectors on mono microphone/line channels and XLR-equipped stereo channels. Also, each of the mono inputs is equipped with a combo jack. They accept both MIC and LINE-level signals. With MG12XU, two phone connectors accept LINE-level signals as stereo. Additionally, each of the stereo channels features 2TR in (RCA connectors) and can be used as independent input from external audio sources such as CDs

LED Level Metering

Additionally, you can monitor output levels precisely and easily with MG12XU’s LED level metering.

Metal Chassis

Built to last, MG Series mixers feature a rugged, impact-resistant, powder-coated metal chassis, offering a high 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.

24-bit /192kHz 2-in/2-out USB Audio Interface Function

Additionally, MG12XU models feature digital connectivity for quick, high-resolution playback of digital content. Simply connect to your PC via USB. The USB protocol uses asynchronous data transfer. You can transfer data using the highly precise audio clock signal from the MG.

MG12XU Rec & Play

The MG Rec & Play software application enables high-quality recording. Also, fast and easy playback of songs and sound effects is possible by simply connecting your iPhone etc. Furthermore, use Rec & Play for a wide range of recording purposes or providing background music or sound effects.

Cubase AI (For Desktop)

Not only- but also MG XU models are bundled with Downloadable Steinberg’s Cubase AI software. As one of the most advanced, comprehensive DAW suites available, Steinberg’s Cubase has led the charge, providing users with a powerful and flexible platform for music production.

Cubasis LE (For iPad)

On the other hand, “Cubasis LE” is available in the App Store. You just need to connect your iPad to MG XU models to make it work. Cubasis LE is the compact version of Steinberg’s streamlined, multitouch sequencer for the iPad. It provides the same look and feel as its bigger brother Cubasis.
