The Yamaha MG12XU 12-channel mixer is a must-have item for anyone looking for a reliable live signal processing/sound reinforcement/audio recording partner. The control interface is highly intuitive, so you can concentrate on getting on with the task at hand. The powder-coated metal chassis is built to take all the abuse that comes with touring, whilst the functionality is absolutely superb. Built-in audio processing and effects controls streamline the process of sculpting the signal - saving you space as you needn't bring external effects units with you. This mixer is an absolute powerhouse that is guaranteed to make your life much easier.

The MG12XU has 12 channels with 6 mic inputs, each featuring Yamaha's studio-quality discrete class-A "D-PRE" preamps to give the best low-noise/high-gain ratio possible. These cleverly designed preamps utilise an inverted Darlington circuit, which provides incredible power with much lower impedance. What this means is that your signal feed will remain unblemished by interference or noise, so all that is captured remains as true as possible; even if you need to crank up the gain, you won't encounter problems with colouration or distortion. Therefore, you can save a lot of studio time - EQing or fixing any problems - by capturing your recordings clearly from the start.

Each mic input includes switchable +48V Phantom Power to keep your condenser mics running at their very best, consistently. There is also a Pad switch to prevent clipping from high-energy sound sources when miked up. Balanced XLR outputs enable you to send signal feeds directly to your monitors, so that no matter how big or small your setup is, you can rest assured that the audio quality will not be compromised in any way.

Recognising the importance of Compression over your live signal mix, Yamaha have developed a 1-knob control. You can very easily and simply give more bounce to your drums, tightness to bass guitar and cleaner vocals. For rapid signal shaping, the MG12XU has built-in 3-band EQ on all mono channels, as well as high-pass filters to effectively cut out unwanted low frequencies from the mix. As you'd expect on a high performance-mixing console, AUX/Effect Sends/Group functions are all present and work fantastically. The incredibly powerful built-in SPX Digital Effects - including Reverb and Delay controls - can be controlled via these functions to bring your live mix to life.

For those who prefer to, you can record directly to iPad (2 or later) via the USB connection and using the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit/Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. This opens up even more opportunities for capturing both live mixes on the road or quickly capturing ideas when recording. Included with the MG12XU is a download version of the powerful Cubase AI DAW to get you up and running straight away.

The solid, powder-coated metal chassis, is built to be the perfect partner on the road – standing up to whatever you throw at it. Every fader, knob and switch feels reassuringly sturdy and of excellent build quality. If you're looking for an affordable mixing desk for home recording or live sound reinforcement, then the Yamaha MG12XU 12-channel mixing desk is an excellent choice!
