Equipped with a USB audio interface & state-of-the-art SPX Digital Effects, the Yamaha MG12XU 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
MG Series mixing consoles feature flexible digital connectivity for quick and easy highresolution 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 MG12XU 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 MG12 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 MG12XU 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.

Built to last
The Yamaha MG12 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.

            This mixer is a great little mixer for a small home studio or a band rehearsal. I like the fact that it doubles as a USB interface so if we want to record our band rehearsal we can. I also love the effects on it. They sound great !

                Comments about Yamaha MG12XU 12 Channel Mixer with USB & SPX Effects:

                Not only is this a great small board for mixing up to 12 channels of live audio, I've found that it's my favorite board to rehearse with, just because it does everything I need, and with a couple of clips, I can easily playback our practice with great quality. There's no more "I wasn't late, you were late, dude." The evidence is right there. Also, the FX on this mixer are great, and easy to dial in.

                  This mixer is very powerful for its size. not only does it have great sounding pre amps and an eq on every channel but it also has onboard digital effects. The sound quality is awesome as can always be expected from a Yamaha product, and for all its features, you would usually expect this kind of versatility and precision out of bigger units. I've used it for both live and rehearsal but it also has the ability to be used as a 2-in/2-out audio interface for recording and playback on your computer, making live recordings possible and easy. This flexible little mixer is a must for anybody in the studio or on the stage.

                    This mixer is a great option if you don't need a ton of channels, but where 12 will do. 6 inputs are XLR so you can have that many mics, either for vocals or your drums or whatever. The other six you can plug in all your instruments such as keyboards or guitars. The mixer features built in effects like delay or reverb. The USB connectivity let's you record as you perform in real time! This is great for live shows, church services, and a smaller studio.
