Equipped with a USB audio interface & state-of-the-art SPX Digital Effects, the Yamah MG16XU gives you the tools you need to produce high quality sound that is uniquely your own.

When was the last time you heard a guitar without EQ or a completely unprocessed vocal on one of your favorite songs? Probably never. Yamaha mixers are famous for their flat response and sonic purity, but it often takes more than a perfectly-captured instrumental performance or vocal to achieve a professional-sounding mix.

24-bit /192kHz 2-in/2-out USB Audio Interface Function
MGXU Series mixing consoles feature flexible digital connectivity for quick and easy high resolution playback of digital content. Simply connect to your PC via USB, or to your iPhone / iPad (2 or later) using Apple's Camera Connection Kit / Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. The USB protocol uses asynchronous data transfer. Audio data is transferred based on highly precise audio clock signal from the MG, for high quality recording and playback.

Built-in SPX Digital Effects
For musical and non-musical applications alike, effects processing adds polish and professionalism to the mix. The MG16XU models feature Yamaha's acclaimed SPX digital multi-effect processor, offering a comprehensive suite of 24 editable digital effects perfect for enhancing your mix, whether adding depth to a speaking engagement or breathing new color and atmosphere into a live band performance. In particular, the high-quality reverb and delay expand the spatial quality of the sound with remarkable realism and naturalness. You can even connect an optional FC5 foot switch for effect on / off control.

D-PRE (Discrete Class-A Mic Preamps)
Delivering fat, natural sounding bass and smooth, soaring highs, with very low distortion, D-PRE preamps possess an impressively wide frequency range that allow them to handle signal from any audio source without overly amplifying any specific elements of the sound. Having such a pure sonic platform to build on will ultimately save you time and effort by eliminating the need for excessive EQing or additional effects processing in order to "fix" your mix.

EQ and High-pass Filters
The Yamaha MG16XU benefits from Yamaha's unparalleled experience in designing pro audio gear, featuring 3-band equalizers on all mono channels for precise control of your sound. High-pass filter allows you to eliminate unwanted low-frequency noise, for a smoother, cleaner mix.

Switchable Phantom Power & PAD Switch
The input channel with PAD switch accepts MIC to line level of inputs, PAD Switch attenuates high input signals that often accompany mic'ed instruments during performance, avoiding the clippingthat can seriously affect your mix.

Cubase AI
The MG16XU comes bundled with Downloadable Steinberg’s Cubase AI software. As one of the most advanced, comprehensive DAW suites available, Steinberg's Cubase has led the charge, providing users with a powerful and flexible platform for music production. Cubase AI offers these same core technologies and interface that have won Cubase worldwide acclaim.

Rack Mount Kit Included
Easily adaptable to a diverse range of installed and portable applications, the 16- and 20- channel models of the MG Series includes rack ears, giving you the option of a rack-mounted or desk-top configuration. Extremely durable, their sleek design makes safe, stable placement of your console hassle-free, keeping setup time and effort to a minimum.

Built to last
The Yamaha MG mixers feature a rugged, impact-resistant, powder-coated metal chassis, offering an unrivalled level of durability. With a sleek design contoured for optimal convection cooling, the internal layout separates the power supply from the analog circuitry for superior noise reduction, and further extends the life of the components inside. To further ensure reliable performance, knob control placement above the surface of the chassis diverts any impact or pressure on the knobs to the chassis itself and not the circuit board or components underneath.

        It's so convenient to have 16 channels that can be run via usb. I've seen this used for recording at a couple venues, and the recordings always come back on point. The built in effects also help you in trying to capture an array of sounds while recording. A great mixer that can capture alot and still maintain clairty while doing so.

          The new MG series from Yamaha, feature their incredible sounding D-Pre's represent a very solid choice for even the most discerning live sound engineer.

              When it comes to Yamaha mixers, there's no question as to the sound quality you will get out of it. The only question is "what options does this awesome Yamaha model come with?". Let me tell ya, the MG16XU has it all, especially when it comes to effects processing.

              With 24 fully programmable digital effects, you have a lot of options in choosing what kind of sound you're looking for. You can add a larger tone and depth to a speaking voice, great sound effects to a band's live performance. The reverb and delay features are the best of the best, and can even be controlled with an optional foot switch. Professional made easy.

                Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16 Channel Mixer with USB & SPX Effects:

                Yamaha always delivers with their mixing consoles and the upgraded MG series is no exception. The 16 channel format features 10 channels of XLR input with 3 channels of stereo 1/4". Onboard compression is a added bonus rarely seen on mixers is this price range, not to mention the built-in SPX digital effectsunit has been an institution in the effects processing game since the 80s. 4 band EQ and 4 AUX inputs really get you dialed in and rockin and rollin all night!

                  The mix pre's are awesome and shine on vocals. Big sounding.
                  Eq's have to barely be touched. Not a lot of work involved to create great sounds. Love it.

                          I love this board for several reasons. It is light weight, compact, and has a very good sound for the price. The onboard compressors let me take less equipment, and the onboard effects sound good! I recommend this board for anyone running sound for medium sized venues and events.
