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.

Excellent Full power Good price Good service Thanks Samash





Home use



I would buy this device over and over again


I have purchased over 4 different types of USB mixers and this one is by far the easiest to use. The MG12XU provides a clarity in sound that I haven't found anywhere as I record solo bass guitar and ambient music.



i would buy a bigger mixer if i need to


good brand, quality mixer, a lot of options for you to mess around with and adjusted to what you want, makes it easy to record of you wwnt to record

Great sounding effects!


Amazing mixer for the price. Great for podcasts or small band.



top notch, always used Yamaha


Over the 40 years of purchasing systems from Sam. Ash, from powered Multi channel mixing boards to today's curent purchase. Extremely satisfied with ease And set up to operate this particular mixing board. I've always used Yamaha products always purchased at Sam. Ash, and have been extremely satisfied with not only the product but the quality of advice that I get from their sales persons.



Great mixing board for multi-purpose use.


Very easy to setup and use. Great for recording and streaming. Affordable and offers a lot of built in features. Highly recommend!



A great little mixer!


I have a lot of gigs and was using a smaller mixer with a wall wart. The connector on the wall wart was starting to wear, and I was worried that I'd be at a gig and it would break entirely. Also one of the channels on the older mixer had gone out. So I needed something that would be more reliable. I looked at a bigger Yamaha mixer but decided on the 12 channel mixer because it satisfied all my needs for a mixer. The sound of this Yamaha mixer is very clean, it's easy to understand, very fast to set up. I like the buttons on the channels and on the effect send and on the stereo fader that turn them off and on individually. It makes it very easy to mute the board when the band takes a break. And with this mixer there's no wall wart —you get a standard AC cord connector. This is a great little mixer!
