Yamaha MG12XU overview

  • 1Description

The MG12XU from Yamaha is a compact mixer capable of twelve simultaneous inputs that is ideal for performances, recordings lectures and more. The mixer features four mono mic/line combo input channels, two stereo line input channels that can also be used as mono mic or line inputs (XLR and stereo 1/4" inputs), and two stereo line inputs with 1/4" and RCA jacks. It also features USB connectivity and is capable of providing two channels in and two channels out to your computer at up to 24-bit / 192kHz, ideal for recording live performances, demos and more.

Channels 1-8 are each equipped with D-PRE mic preamps, 3-band EQ, pan control and a high pass filter. The D-PRE mic preamps feature an inverted Darlington circuit and switchable 48V phantom power for use with dynamic and condenser microphones. Channels 1-4 each also feature 26dB attenuation switches for use with loud sound sources such as guitar amplifiers and drums.

The MG12XU mixer has XLR and TRS stereo outs for connecting to your PA system or monitor speakers. It also has a 1/4" headphone output with level control for personal monitoring, as well as additional TRS 1/4" stereo monitor outs for sending to powered speakers, amplifiers or devices such as digital recorders.

Each of the MG12XU's channels feature a dedicated FX bus send level and there are 24 effects presets to choose from. The overall level of the FX bus is controlled by the dedicated FX return level control. Providing reverbs, delays, phaser, flanger, chorus, tremolo, auto-wah, distortion and more, these effects can be used to help vocals and instruments sit better in your mix.

    Yamaha MG12XU reviews

    MG12XU 12-Input Mixer with Built-In FX and 2-In/2-Out USB Interface is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, an affordable, transparent, mix After my last mixer turned out to be a disappointment, (having blown a few channels from only two months of use), I was willing to spend whatever it took to find something more reliable and little less noisy. The 12XU was it.Very quiet, or transparent in a well treated room.I really like the one knob compression, (just a little goes a long ways). Even using a pre-amp on the mic was still quiet enough for mixing with background music, (or easily pulled using NR software for solo VO).I like the multiple color scheme that works well in a sea of buttons for quick grabs, (that I don't need to find my glasses to read labels).Lighted Mute buttons that say ON. Nuff said.A PFL switch to listen to channels independently when you're live and can't solo to investigate any issues that may arrise, or to preview a channel before putting it into the mix. I will certain use this one for live event work. It also has a solid build and feel to it.You'll have to download and install a USB driver for PC connectivity, and while it might seem like a minor issue, what you'll get is an ASIO driver to use in your DAW, (zero latency, ASIO features for labptops with non ASIO cards, etc). Nice.While the board is not difficult to use, One caveate is the USB input. It requires input level adjustment via an Attenuator Function, found on pages 22 and 28 of the manual. Read it, or weep.My only gripe was having to provide my own USB Cable. So, you might want to order one with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big Improvement This represented a leap forward for me in being able to bypass an audio interface, instead going directly into my Mac via USB.� It solved some noise issues, etc. being fewer steps in the audio chain.� I left off a star because my unit came with a slightly defective effects param knob, but it seems to be functional.� Also the compressors are quiet, but seem to introduce a lot of gritty, digital saturation-type distortion when cranked up (maybe that was intended, but I'm not used to that type of noise being associated with compression).� Other than that the unit is fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brandname excellence.. Have you EVER seen a YAMAHA product that was not excellent?! This mixer is EXCELLENT. I bought it initially for performing, which it does so well, with room to spare on all perimeters, but the effects and connections are so well thought out, that it will also be used for recording. Another outstanding piece from a company that excels at everything they build. Think: Guitars, keyboards, electronics, outboards, motorcycles.. if not the best, close to it!I am thrilled with this mixer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha MG12XU I use this mixer for church audio and video mixing. The sound quality is excellent. It is very easy to use and control panel is laid out very nice. The USB port is a very nice feature as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Bang for the Buck I just installed two of these mixers in some small classrooms and they sound great. I love the USB audio feature and the overall feature set of these notepad mixers. I really like the compressor as it is something you wouldn't typically see on a mixer this size. Great build quality and overall sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha Mic Mixer w/ Effects Experience and use of this mic mixer board with special effects has proven itself to carry out its performance beyond the expectations of a knowledgeable high end user following the manufacturer user guide.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low Cost, High Value This mixer is so powerful and flexible. Small size and large impact. Yamaha makes quality products and this one represents that quality. You can't go wrong buying this mixer.
