The Yamaha MG82CX is the ideal mixer for live sound applications, offering sonic quality that will satisfy the most critical listener, surprising flexibility and ease-of-use.
Brought to you by the company that builds the most toured professional mixers in the industry, the Yamaha MG82CX Mixing Console takes its pedigree from those incredible large format mixing consoles and scales it down to a portable, powerful mixing solution.
The Yamaha MG82CX is a lightweight, portable 8 channel professional mixer with some surprising features for a unit of this size and affordability. It has 4 high-performance microphone preamps using Neutrik xlr connectors and six ¼” line inputs. Four high performance microphone preamps, which take their heritage from those huge, larger format Yamaha mixers, are here and boast some nice features.
Channels 1 and 2 feature a built-in, single knob compressor. You don’t need an audio engineering degree to operate these signal tamers. Just dial in the desired amount of compression and you’re done! It will help keep your levels on these channels in check and smooth out the signal in an unobtrusive manner. Just below is a balanced insert point for patching in your favorite outboard gear.
Built into the Yamaha MG82CX is an SPX digital multi-effects processer. The SPX family of effects has long been a Yamaha staple in the industry and have made their way onto countless recordings and live show rigs over the years. There are 16 editable programs including reverbs, delays, modulation and distortion effects.
Each of the 4 microphone channels of the Yamaha MG82CX has a 3-band EQ (channels 7-10 feature a 2-band EQ) to help carve out the perfect frequency, and a peak light indicator tells you when you’re overloading the channel causing possible distortion. There’s switchable phantom power onboard enabling you to use your valuable condenser mics. One switch turns on phantom power for all 4 mic pres. A stereo send and return lets you hook up your favorite effects processer and AUX returns on every channel let you dial in to taste just the perfect amount of effect per channel.
Channels 7/8 feature RCA connectors as well as ¼” L/R inputs, making it easy to hook up your synths, MP3 player, and/or anything that sends a stereo output. A handy 2-track input enables you to hook up your iPod or MP3 player and dial in just the exact amount of signal desired. It’s separate from the main mixing channels so they remain free for your mics and instruments. A bright, multi-segment LED meter lets you know where your level is and allows for easy control, all at a glance.
Just above the Yamaha MG82CX’s master controls are the main stereo output connectors, phone-jack monitor output connectors, pin-jack recording outputs, and a stereo headphone jack. A dedicated monitor/phones knob controls the output level to your headphones or monitor.
The Yamaha MG82CX can be mounted on a microphone stand using the optional BMS-10A Mic Stand Adaptor, and is powered by the included PA-10 AC adaptor.
