Road Tough. Studio Ready.
For more than a century, Yamaha has been building a legacy of superior craftsmanship and innovation
exemplified in all of our products, from an unrivalled catalog of world-class musical instruments to
touring-grade professional audio. Now in its third incarnation, the MG Series embodies this pursuit of
design excellence, and incorporates some of the same technologies developed for use in high-end professional consoles, including studio-quality preamps, powerful digital processing, and a rugged, reliable
construction.
With an intuitive, easy-to-use interface, the MG Series boasts an extensive lineup of compact mixing
consoles with models ranging from six to twenty channels, suitable for a diverse range of users and applications. For installed, recording, or live music settings, the solid construction and flexible design of
these consoles lets you shape your sound with confidence, continually delivering peak performance and
a level of sound quality and reliability unrivalled in its class.

02
Head of the class
Yamaha has always strived to provide sound engineers with the purest possible signal
instead of added processing or color to give it a “signature” sound, and the MG Series is
no exception. Embracing this philosophy of transparent sound, these mixing consoles deliver a level of sonic purity and sound quality that is unmatched in their class.
D-PRE Discrete Class-A Mic Preamps
This is where it all starts. Everything you do as a sound engineer is dependent on the
quality of your preamps, which determines the direction your mix will take, and ultimately how good it is going to sound. MG Series mixing consoles feature Yamaha’s
studio-grade discrete class-A D-PRE preamps, which utilize an inverted Darlington
circuit comprising two cascading transistors in a configuration that provides more
power with lower impedance. 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.

High Quality Sound Op-amp
Switchable Phantom Power & PAD Switch
The head amp determines sound quality, and op-amp integrated circuits are one of the most
important parts in the head amp circuit. MG Series mixers feature new, high-quality, custommade MG01 op-amps that we developed in cooperation with the semiconductor manufacturer. Although many other Op-amps prioritize electrical design and efficiency, we worked
directly with the semiconductor manufacturer to focus on sound quality first. MG01 op-amps
feature redesigned circuitry in which even the internal components and wiring have been
optimized, and use materials such as high-quality silicon wafers and copper wire to achieve
superb resolution.
With phantom power, MG Series consoles allow you to take
full advantage of the greater frequency response and high
sound quality of condenser microphones. 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 clipping
that can seriously affect your mix.
04
Our mixer. Your sound.
When was the last time you heard 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. Equipped with some of the
same state-of-the-art functionality featured on Yamaha’s high-end consoles, the MG Series
gives you the tools you need to produce high quality sound that is uniquely your own.
A variety of input / output
connectors
All models feature high-quality Neutrik™ balanced XLR connectors on mono microphone/line channels and XLR equipped
stereo channels. Each of the mono inputs is equipped with
combo jack and accepts both MIC and LINE level signals.
Two of the stereo inputs are equipped with XLR and two phone
connectors with XLR accepting MIC level signals while two
phone connectors accepting LINE level signals and can be
used either mono or stereo. (except for 10ch model) The function of another two stereo channel vary depending on model:
With 20ch model, XLR accepts MIC level signal and two RCA
connectors accepts LINE level signals and can be used either
mono or stereo. With 16ch and 12ch models, two phone connectors accept LINE level signals as stereo. Additionally, each
of the stereo channel features 2TR in (RCA connectors) and
can be used as independent input from external audio sources
such as CDs. 10ch is equipped with additional stereo channel with a pair of phone jack that accepts LINE levels. With XU
models, any incoming source that are sent via USB can be
assigned to one of the stereo channel.
In addition to the main stereo outputs (XLR L/R, TRS phone L/
R), MG Series mixing consoles are equipped with a comprehensive suite of output connectors, including GROUP OUT
(TRS phone), AUX/FX OUT (TRS phone), MONITOR OUT (TRS
phone L/R), and HEADPHONE OUT (stereo phone) connectors, allowing master outputs to be chosen to suit specific
applications such as monitoring or mastering.
1-knob Compressors
Compression plays an essential role in just about any
recording or sound reinforcement environment by altering the
level of dynamics of an audio signal when you need livelier
guitars, punchier bass lines, a tighter snare, or a cleaner vocal
sound. However, it can take countless hours to master the
complexities of even the most basic outboard compression
units and use them effectively. Originally a Yamaha innovation,
1-knob compressors are now an industry standard that gives
you instant access to optimized compression settings via a
single rotary control.
EQ and High-pass Filters
There’s nothing more useful than reliable equalization when you need nuanced management of your tone.
The MG Series 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.
AUX / Effect Sends / Group
MG Series mixers feature up to AUX sends for expanding your sound reinforcement or recording setup,
allowing you to incorporate additional effects, output to external recording devices, or feed to an monitoring system. Master send controls are also provided. The MG06 / 06X and MG10 / 10XU have a single
stereo bus. All other models additionally feature one or two stereo group buses and outputs that can be
used for convenient channel grouping. Assign switches for the stereo and group buses are located next
to each channel fader.
Built-in SPX Digital Effects
For musical and non-musical applications alike, effects processing adds polish and professionalism to the mix. The MG X / XU
models 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. (MG10XU /

Built to last
For gigging, recording, and installed applications alike, your console can be subjected to a
wide range of environmental conditions and hazards. Excessive humidity, unstable power supplies, and the rigors of road travel in general can take a serious toll on a mixing console, often
causing expensive, time-consuming repairs, and reducing its lifespan. The MG Series has been
redesigned with an emphasis on durability, incorporating practical features that offer greater
flexibility while ensuring peak performance for many years to come.
Metal Chassis
Built to last, MG Series 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
