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 MG20XU features 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 MG20XU 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 MG20XU 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.

Wait No Longer, The Future Is Here!!!


The Yamaha MG20XU 20 Channel Mixer is truly the future of analog mixers. Stocked with Yamahas legendary pre-amps. I've been using this mixer for about 3 months now and it blows every other mixer I've ever used out of the water. I've been doing live sound for 6 years and have worked at a countless number of venues. This board has everything you could ever need and then some. It has eight channels with built in compression knobs, which sound amazing. And I don't need to lug around rack gear anymore with built in effects that rival my lexicon I love this mixer. And the faders are extremely accurate. BUT the very best part is the USB out, it allows me to record entire live shows right to my laptop. Yamaha really out did themselves this time. If you're looking for a mixer, you've found it. I would recommend this mixer to any live sound engineer.
