Yamaha MG06X Overview

The MG06X from Yamaha is a compact six-input mixer with built-in effects for small performances, lectures, recordings, and similar applications. The mixer features two XLR-1/4" combo mic/line inputs with D-PRE mic preamps as well as two 1/4" stereo line inputs with level controls.

Each of the two mic/line inputs is equipped with a 2-band EQ and a high-pass filter at 80 Hz. The D-PRE mic preamps feature an inverted Darlington circuit and switchable 48V phantom power for use with dynamic and condenser microphones. They also each feature 26 dB attenuation switches for recording loud sound sources such as guitar amplifiers.

The MG06X mixer has stereo XLR and 1/4" outs for connecting to your PA system or monitor speakers. It also has a 1/4" headphone output with level control for personal monitoring.

The mixer's built-in effects can be engaged on the two mic/line combo inputs and they feature reverb and delay. Providing three reverb and three delay settings plus a dedicated FX return level control, these effects can be used to help vocals and instruments sit better in your mix.

Mono/stereo switch allows channels 1/2 to be used with two mono sources or one stereo source
Metal chassis designed to withstand wear and tear

This unit is of excellent quality and functions perfectly. I would not hesitate to buy it again if it were what I needed. The 10 input without effects would have suited me better in this instance, (20/20) hindsight, but that's on me.

Just what I needed

This little mixer was perfect for my jazz trio with two vocals and electric piano. I was looking for simple, small, and quiet, and all three criteria were met. Like a lot of small devices, it has the 'wall wart' power supply which is the only negative for me, but that is a very small negative. The reverb/delay helps 'room up' the vocals which helps especially outdoors in a small setting.

I Love it

Great mixer - I just wish it had a USB interface.

I own the MG12XU and thought this would be a great addition to our household for recording harp music direct-to-iphone.� Sadly, I didn't realize the 6-input model wasn't equipped with a USB interface.� This is a dealbreaker for me, so I'm going to purchase a second mixer for the household -- the MG10X instead. Yamaha mixers have excellent sound output -- some of the cleanest in the lower-cost spectrum.

Very satisfied!

After figuring out how to use this(which didn't take long), I have been having a lot of fun with it. The effects are cool for both guitar and vocals, but I do wish there were more options. For the price, it is definitely worth the buy. It is portable due to it's size and good for beginner home recorders. Make sure you get all the cables you need for the mixer and your instruments though! I have to make a few extra orders because I don't have everything I need for my home recording set-up.

I have used this mixer for two years now as a football/ music announcer. The stadium I use it at is mono. I attach two iPods, a Sennheiser microphone, and Sennheiser HMD-281-13 (Yes, I announce football/basketball/soccer games). The Yamaha works well for what I use it for(I connect to preamplifier/amplifier in press booth). it works well since I am announcing, setting up music, etc., all at once. I hopes this helps. Enjoy.

Amazing Little Mixer

If you need a mixer just for yourself, piano and/or guitar this is the perfect mixer for the job. Small but powerful!

Excellent Product

Sturdy build, lots of features, but bought it mainly for the XLR outputs. in case your running sound at a hotel etc. If I were purchasing it now I would buy the $99 model 'cause I really don't need all those effects.

question

how to set up yamaha mg06x with powered speaker for vocalist?
Asked by: Anonymous
The MG06X will feed powered speakers either from the XLR or 1/4 stereo outputs. A mic can be connected to channel 1 or 2 combo input via XLR. Proper level setting for the mic will start with raising the input gain level first, making sure the peak indicator is not solid red. Blinking occasionally is fine. Then raising the channel level to send signal to the stereo bus. (output).

question

Can the effects be applied to Channels 3/4 and 5/6? Reading the owner's manual, it seems as if they can only be applied to Channels 1 and 2.
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, yes, they cannot be used on the other channels. That being said, for the price and size, I love this thing. It's great for live shows. I have 6 outs of a drum machine running into it. And the effects sound great.

question

should the pad be engaged when using an iPad?
Asked by: Anonymous
When using an iPad connected to channel 1/2 you may need to engage the pad if the signal is overloading with the preamp gain all the way down. Using channel 3&4 which are dedicated line level inputs will work as well.

Is there a way to connect this to a computer via USB?
Asked by: Mary Madison
As the Yamaha MG06X 6-Input Mixer with Built-In Effects does not have built-in USB interface capabilities itself, an external USB interface would need to be implemented in between the mixer and the computer. An example of this type of interface is BH #FOSCARL2I23G Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2x2 USB Audio Interface.
