Yamaha MGP16X 16 input Analog Rackmount Mixer
Yamaha MGP16X 16 input Analog Rackmount Mixer
The MGP16X Yamaha 16 channel mixer is the result of the call for a small format sound reinforcement console with a feature set that fulfills the demands of today's traveling bands, performance groups, live venues, houses-of-worship, town halls, and more. The MGP16X Yamaha 16 channel mixer has a special console that features a total of 16 input channels with 8 mono inputs, and 4 stereo inputs, dual effects processor, 1-knob compression, stereo hybrid channels, and optional control / audio playback from Apple iPads and iPhones.
The front-end features 10 of Yamaha's breakthrough D-Pre microphone preamps, featuring an inverted Darlington circuit design. The result is a transparent, warm, and musical audio character unique to the MGP16X Yamaha 16 channel mixer. The mixer's X-pressive EQ section delivers accurate settings, steep shelving, and musical frequency contouring. A very powerful Dual Digital Effects processor employs Yamaha REV-X reverbs and SPX series digital multi-effects. An additional feature unique to the MGP16X Yamaha 16 channel mixer is its dedicated stereo Digital Hybrid channels.
Two stereo channels feature extensive DSP underneath the familiar analog controls. The Digital Hybrid channels feature Priority Ducker for prioritizing announcements and other signals, a Leveler for global level control, and a Stereo Image feature that adjusts the width of stereo tracks, and allows for a much more comfortable and satisfying listening experience (ideal for backing tracks and intermission music breaks). The MGP16X Yamaha 16 channel mixer features a USB iPod and iPad connection. Not only can the console playback audio from these devices, Yamaha's free MGP editor app allows for extensive control and editing of many of the console's features and parameters, directly from your Apple iPhone or iPad. Thanks to its integrated rack ears, the MGP16X Yamaha 16 channel mixer can be rack-mounted.
Digital Heart. Analog Soul
Yamaha has provided an impressive range of lineups in professional audio since the release of the PM200 in 1972 - our first ever professional analog mixing console. In 1987, we also released our first digital mixer, the DMP7, and have subsequently advanced technological innovations in sound quality, reliability, and advanced functionalities with cutting-edge digital technologies.
Drawing from our decades of experience crafting innovative, premium analog gear, we originally developed our new discrete Class-A microphone preamps for professional use in our high-end recording equipment. Utilizing an inverted Darlington circuit design, our newly-refined D-PRE mic preamps deliver a fat, rich, smooth tone that gives the MGP Series a significant advantage over any other mixer in its class. With Yamaha's proprietary X-pressive EQ we've managed to capture ultimate analog authenticity by unlocking the mysterious secret behind the expressive sound shaping capabilities of sought-after classic EQ modules.
At the heart of the MGP's compact configuration, we've taken an innovative new approach to the utilization of digital technology in an analog mixer; adding high-resolution effects, iPod/iPhone integration, and the superb functionality of our new Stereo Hybrid Channel to the warmth and musicality of premium analog sound. The MGP Series represents the ultimate balance of the converging technologies that are the heart and soul of Yamaha's extraordinary achievements in professional audio.
