Yamaha MGP16X overview

  • 1Description

The Yamaha MGP16X 16-Channel Premium Mixing Console is the result of the call for a small format sound reinforcement console with a feature set that meets the demands of today's touring bands, performance groups, live venues, houses-of-worship, town halls and more. The console features a total of 16 input channels with 8 mono inputs, and 4 stereo inputs, dual effects processor, 1-knob compression, stereo hybrid channels and optional control / audio playback from Apple iPads and iPhones.

The front-end features 10 of Yamaha's breakthrough D-Pre microphone preamps, featuring an inverted Darlington circuit design. The result is a transparent, warm and musical audio character unique to the MGP16X. The mixer's X-pressive EQ section delivers precise settings, steep shelving and musical frequency contouring. A powerful Dual Digital Effects processor employs Yamaha REV-X reverbs and SPX series digital multi-effects. An additional feature unique to the MGP16X is its dedicated stereo Digital Hybrid channels.

Two stereo channels feature extensive DSP underneath the familiar analog controls. The Digital Hybrid channels feature Priority Ducker for prioritizing announcements and other signals, a Leveler for global level control and a Stereo Image feature that adjusts the width of stereo tracks, and allows for a much more comfortable listening experience (ideal for backing tracks and intermission music breaks). The Yamaha MGP16X features a USB iPod and iPad connection. Not only can the console playback audio from these devices, Yamaha's free MGP editor app allows for extensive control and editing of many of the console's features and parameters, directly from your Apple iPhone or iPad. Thanks to its integrated rack ears, the MGP16X can be rack mounted.

    Yamaha MGP16X reviews

    MGP16X 16-Channel Premium Mixing Console is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Internal Damage My little portable PA went out of channels, so i went shopping for a mixer with more channels. B&H caught my attention with a good price. The first one came in with a little dent on one side of the shipping box. When I open it, the packing foam on one side is cracking into pieces. The mixer looks fine; however, the volume won't maintain itself and the FX1 is a bit noisy. I requested an exchange. Took 5 days to get back and another 3 days for new one to arrive. This time every thing is intact. I hook the mixer up and WOW. It sounds awesome. have not get time to check out everything yet, but one thing for sure CHECK the shipping box. If the packing foam is cracked, your mixer might be INTERNAL DAMAGE. It is my first shopping experience with B&H and it is awesome.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mixer FX2 channel did not work on the first unit delivered. B&H was quick to replace with another unit that works fine, so far. Some sliders are a little rough feeling, but seem to work OK.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product. I used to have mgp-12x, and now I have been using MGP-16x for more channel. Every function and mixer features ( SPX and FX ) are working perfectly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolute magic, but mine might have an issue I've worked with a lot of professional mixers and thought I knew what to expect when I put the headphones on with this one. I was wrong. The pre-amps on this are astonishingly good, delivering a detailed, sharp, rich sound especially in the highs that I just haven't ever heard in a mixer before. On one hand, every problem with mic placements, comb filtering from mics being put too closely together, room acoustics problems, or just poor mics is going to smack you upside the head as it's going to make painfully clear every last problem you have. On the other hand, it's going to be obvious how to fix each one of those problems and what you'll end up with is going to be a mix that feels vastly superior to what you'd otherwise manage to pull off. This is not a just plug things in and turn on the power mixer and get what you get. This is a fine tool for real craftsmanship, and the ultimate results are absolutely stunning for something at this price range. Having said all that, the only issue I'm seeing is that one of the channels seems to have gone wonky on me, and during a show last weekend I wasn't getting anything out of the strip while I was seeing the indicator show me there was a strong signal there. Not having time to deal with it, I just changed the mic to another channel and as soon as I can get to it will figure out whether this was something stupid on my part, or whether there are quality assurance issues with this one instance of a remarkably affordable piece of absolute magic. I should nail that down in the next day or so, but in the meantime it gets 4/5 instead of 5/5 since I shouldn't ever see anything questionable at this level. Assuming the breakdown was on my part, ping your peers to see if any of them have one of these you can listen to one day. I bet you're going to be quite surprised by what you hear and will wonder whether someone snuck some really expensive external preamps into your signal chain in order to mess with you.
