Yamaha AG03 overview

  • 1Description

The AG03 from Yamaha is a compact 3-input mixer and USB interface with built-in DSP for sound-reinforcement and recording of small performances, podcasts, lectures and similar applications. Capable of recording and playback of high-resolution 24-bit/192 kHz sound, this mixer features one XLR/1/4" combo mic/line input, as well as stereo 1/4" line inputs with level control, and a Hi-Z switch for direct recording of guitar and bass. The mixer is compatible with Windows, Mac and iPad.

The XLR/1/4" combo mic/line input is equipped with a D-PRE mic preamp that was originally designed by Yamaha for use in their high-end recording gear. This channel features switchable 48V phantom power for use with dynamic and condenser microphones, and also features a pad switch for recording loud sound sources such as guitar amplifiers.

The AG03 mixer has stereo 1/4" and stereo RCA 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 an 1/8" aux input for monitoring portable devices and headset connectivity.

On-Board DSP
On-board 1-TOUCH DSP adds set COMP/EQ and EFFECT to signal path. For more precise control of these settings, the multi-platform AG DSP Controller software (download) allows users to access and edit the compressor, EQ, high-pass filter, and reverb
Perform and Broadcast Over Backing Tracks
LOOPBACK function allows users to broadcast their musical, or non-musical content live online along with backing tracks or additional audio from PC or Mac computers or an iPad

    Yamaha AG03 reviews

    AG03 3-Channel Mixer & USB Audio Interface is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What i need for mobile recording, nothing I don't. Preamp sounds fantastic. Onboard DSP sweetens voice tracks just right. The routing is ideal for recording to ProTools on a MacBook. The extra USB port allows external portable power if necessary. Besides all that, the most Wow for me is SEPARATE pots for headphones and monitors. Can't tell you how much I appreciate this box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and great sounding audio interface! I use the Yamaha AG03 as a DAW audio interface with Logic Pro X on a MacBook running the latest version of Mac OS El Capitan and it works very well. I have it set at 24 bit, 88khz and the sound is clean with no hiss or other audible artifacts. It's plug and play on a Mac, using the built in core audio driver. I did download the amp simulator/compressor/eq/reverb app from Yamaha that goes with this unit that allows you to tweak the effects that get enabled when you turn on the effects button. I use the compressor and eq effect when recording bass into Logic and my bass has never sounded better. All of the knobs, fader and switches work well and feel solid as do the cable jacks. I really appreciate having two separate volume controls for headphones and for the speakers. I also had an Apogee Duet 2 audio interface (since sold) and honestly I think this Yamaha interface sounds as good as it, even though it costs substantially less. I actually prefer my bass recorded sound through the AG03 with the compressor/eq enabled over the sound I was getting recording bass with the Duet 2. Plus having separate physical knobs is much nicer to use, IMO than one multi-purpose knob. It' amazes me that audio gear has gotten this good at such at such little outlay of $$$. Definitely recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sports announcing! I purchased the AG03 as a compact, court-side mixer for sports announcing. So far it is everything I hoped for. PC plugs in to the usb port to supply power and for audio playback of the fight song and intro music. An SM58s mic into the XLR on channel 1. Quiet mute switch for mic on/off between announcements. Solid construction that has good weight and a small footprint. The DSP software is an excellent idea! No need for a long string of knobs and buttons to adjust your EQ/FX/Comp. which take up a ton of room on the board. Instead you can work that out digitally and save it to the mixer for repetitive use. The driver & software were easy to download and then it's just plug n play. For a small package this thing does an awful lot. For a compact, road-worthy, announcer mixer I think I found a winner.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not compatible with macOS Sierra Be aware that as of Dec 13, 2016 the software for this product (ag_dsp_controller) is not compatible with macOS Sierra. Until Yamaha releases a fix many features will not be available. I tested the unit I received in Windows 10 and it appears to work as advertised. If you are using macOS Sierra, I'd recommend checking Yamaha's support website before buying.
