Yamaha adds two mixers to MG Series
Yamaha has announced the addition of two new mixers to its popular MG Series.
The new MG10XUF and MG12XUK models add broader choice to the 10 and 12 channel categories within the third-generation MG Series line-up. While the adoption of linear faders in the MG10XUF offers fine level control and direct visual feedback, the MG12XUK employs rotary knobs that contribute to more compact overall dimensions.
All other features are the same as current third-generation MG Series XU models. All feature Yamaha’s discrete Class-A “D-PRE” microphone pre-amplifiers. An upgraded 1-knob compressor makes it possible to add optimised compression to a wide variety of input sources via a single control. 24 updated SPX effects are included in the latest MG models for versatile creative processing.
The new models also feature a USB 2.0 audio interface capable of 24-bit/192kHz quality for playback of digital content from a PC, and/or recording of the mixer’s output to DAW software such as the included Steinberg Cubase AI. USB Audio Class 2.0 is also supported, allowing operation with USB Audio Class 2.0 compliant tablets and other devices without the need to install driver software. Both models are compatible with the Apple Camera Connection Kit or Lighting to USB Camera Adapter for seamless recording and playback of digital audio to and from an iPad or iPhone.
Yamaha says that all MG Series models are designed with emphasis on durability, incorporating practical features that ensure reliable operation in a wide range of challenging conditions. A powder-coated steel chassis provides improved structural strength, while the placement of the knobs above the surface of the chassis protects internal components by absorbing impact or pressure applied to the knobs themselves.
Yoshi Tsugawa, general manager of Yamaha’s Pro Audio Division, says: ‘The third generation of our MG mixer line-up was released in 2014 with an extensive choice of models. The MG line-up rapidly earned an enviable reputation with users in a wide range of applications all around the world. The new models announced here expand the line-up even further, providing additional choices that will ideally match the individual needs of more users.’
