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.

      This Yamaha MG16XU is an awesome mixer with the capability to be a live interface as well. The Preamps used in these mixers are absolutely phenomenal.

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

        The MG16XU is just another great board from Yamaha. I love the compact design and ability to add effects to each track. I am also a huge fan of the dual input jacks on the first 8 channels. You can plug in an XLR or 1/4 inch into the same input. Obviously not at the same time, but it is a great design and cuts down on space and confusing inputs for the beginner. I love the compression knob, and the ability to record digitally to your computer or mobile device.

          This is one of the best compact mixing consoles I've came across in the last 5 years. I use it primarily for my home studio but also have used it when playing my ipod and computer via usb through the pa speakers. I also was taken by the price and quality of the controls. Yamaha has done it again. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music

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

          I needed a new mixer for my bands live gigs because Unfortunatley the one I had for ten years final gave out on me. This time I around I wanted something with some effects and more modern features so I went with this Yamaha mixer recommended by a friend and I've been blown away ever since. Not only does it sound great but it has an array of fx, 3 band eq on each channel, and now I can record our performances directly to my laptop via usb. I've even ended up using this guy for recording scratch tracks at home. The versatility offered in this small package makes me wonder why I hadn't gotten this sooner. It has definatley become my go to for both live and recording situations.

          Yamaha have always produced great mixers, and with the new MG series you still get that great Yamaha sound and quality in a compact light weight mixer. This new mixer features 8 channels of compression along with dB pad control as well. There are 24 digital on board effects and well as a 24bit/192KHz 2 in/2 out USB audio interface for simple recording into a computer. Also added is yamahas new D-PRE class A mic pres which provide excellent sound quality to any source sent into the mixer. Look no further for a mixer Yamaha is the way to go.

            Great quality of craftsmanship and great quality of sound! 16 channel mixer with 10 XLR inputs. More than enough inputs for a small band (including drum mics) plus you have built in effects! One of the coolest things though is that it is also an interface. You can plug in via USB to any computer or even your iPhone or iPad (just make sure you have the right cables). Includes Cubase AI and a universal power supply if you do any traveling overseas. Awesome price for an awesome mixer! I'm a sales associate at Sam Ash Music Ontario.

                The Yamaha MG16XUX has all the great features of a mixer twice it's size. It has four auxilaries which is always good for having multiple monitors with seperate control. It also has improved mic preamps with a high headroom. The effects are clean. It can also be used a an audio interface with up to 24 bit/192khz recording quality. It comes with Cubase AI and rack ears so you don't have to spend extra money on those. Overall the yamaha MG16XU is a complete workhouse for live events and recording purposes.
