Yamaha MG16XU Overview

The MG16XU from Yamaha is a compact mixer capable of sixteen simultaneous inputs that is ideal for performances, recordings lectures and more.

Channels 1-12 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 1-8 each also feature 26dB attenuation switches for use with loud sound sources such as guitar amplifiers and drums.

Yamaha MG16XU Reviews

Great device, good bang for your buck

Great mixer. Easy set up, easy use. I use it as a mixing panel for connecting several devices: cd player, turntable, DJ controller, and so on. Works great. Very interesting pricing, specially when compare to DJ mixing panels with build in FX. I would recommend this device!

Great Mixer for small gigs

I use the MG16XU for off site audio applications. The built-in compressor and effects are great features for those who need a mobile unit without a digital cost. The MG16XU's 2 Pre-Aux Channels are great for multiple monitor mixes. The USB in provides an easy connection from my laptop to plan background music. Great purchase.

question

For the USB output, will the entire stereo mix of all inputs be sent over USB?The description says it provides two channels out - I presume these are the two L/R channels of the full mix?
Asked by: Robert M.
On the MG16XU the signal from the STEREO L/R bus is output is output to the computer via the USB connection. This is sourced pre fader and not affected by the STEREO master fader.
