Audio professionals looking for a high-quality analog mixer with integrated effects will be impressed with the Yamaha MG16X, a compact 16-input mixer with built-in effects for performances, lectures, recordings, and similar applications. The mixer features eight 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. Channels 1 to 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 include a microphone pad, which provides 26 dB of attenuation for use with loud sound sources such as guitar amplifiers and drums. Channels 1 to 8 are also equipped with Yamaha's 1-knob compression for easy adjustment and professional results.
The MG16X 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 MG16X's channels feature a dedicated FX-bus-send level, and there are 24 effect 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.
