Key benefits compared to other products

"Sleek, compact and easy to use. Perfect for any simple home recording setup." - Johnny in YML store

Combining our mixing, DSP (digital effects) and audio interface technologies into one easy-to-use unit, the AG03 is perfectly designed for podcasters, gamers and music producers - and it's Mac, Windows and iOS compatible.

Overview

AG is a multi-purpose, high-resolution mixer and USB audio interface designed to elevate the creative, audio experience for webcasters / podcasters, gamers, mobile musicians, music producers and more...

Features

The Yamaha AG Series offers high-resolution (24-bit/192kHz) audio recording and playback, iOS compatibility and battery operation.

A key feature of the AG Series is the intuitive ‘TO PC’ switch that allows users to select which inputs are routed back to a computer or iOS device. Selecting Dry CH 1-2 allows the computer or iOS to record inputs 1 and 2, while the INPUT MIX switch routes all inputs to the computer or iOS device via USB for standard music production applications. The LOOPBACK function in the TO PC section, which is perfect for podcasters, routes all inputs to the stereo USB output, along with the USB input from the computer. This makes mixing mics and instruments with music beds, sound effects or the audio from computers and iOS devices a breeze.

Gamers are also able to adjust their sound in real-time with the included headset interface and hardware controls, removing the need to open a software control panel. The AG is the perfect tool for creating videos on sites like Twitch.tv.

The Swiss Army Knife.

Unlike USB audio interfaces which typically rely on software to control routing, effects and monitoring, the totally new AG series eliminates the need for software and brings easy-to-use routing and DSP controls to the front panel. All of this is combined with high resolution 24-bit, 192kHz audio.

The AG series also features the acclaimed high-quality Yamaha D-PRE microphone preamps and onboard DSP effects, along with an AUX input for additional music source – such as an iPod. The inclusion of a foot switch input means that performers can add a footswitch to kill the FX on a mic channel when talking between songs. Separate headphone/monitor volume controls are perfect for gamers who share videos. The layout brings hidden or difficult-to-find software controls to the front panel with easy-to-use faders, knobs and switches. 1-TOUCH DSP makes it easier than ever to get professional sound quality.

The AG06 features six channels: a main input optimised for vocals with a D-PRE studio-quality mic preamp, a second flexible channel for another mic or a guitar and two stereo inputs for keyboards or other line level sources. The flexible second channel features 1-TOUCH AMP SIM DSP for great guitar tone at the touch of a button. The three-channel AG03 features a single 60mm fader for the main input with D-PRE mic preamp and a Hi-Z input that allows direct connection for guitars and basses.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question:

Answer

The AG03 is ideal for this - it makes it easy to record a condenser ('studio' type) microphone, electric guitar or a stereo keyboard, synthesizer or electric piano either to a Mac, Windows PC or an iPad. It has an internal battery making it ideal for use with a laptop or iPad. It also comes complete with Steinberg's famous Cubase software for macOS and Windows - so you can start recording quickly.

Does your daughter already have a microphone? If not, we'd recommend RØDE's NT1 microphone pack; this gives exceptional detail and clarity for vocals (and could be used to record instruments such as guitar and flute if wanted) - link below.

You can use headphones with the AG03, use an existing portable speaker (if it has an Aux In socket) or, ideally, connect the AG03 to studio monitor speakers - the HS Series of monitor speakers is highly rated - links below.

Answer

Once connected, as far as Windows, macOS and iOS are aware, the AG03 (and its bigger brother, the AG06) is a standard, high-quality audio interface and will work with Audacity, Wavelab, Cubase, Cubasis, Logic and all other studio software (which make use of macOS, Windows or class-compliant audio interfaces).

Answer

The AG03 allows you to connect microphones, instruments and music/speech recorders (including iPhones, iPads and iPods and the Pocketrak handheld recorders) for recording in realtime to software (we include Steinberg's excellent Cubase AI software to get you started).

But the Pocketrak PR7 includes a built-in USB connection to connect directly to your computer, allowing you to transfer recordings back and forth - you won't need an audio interface/mixer to do this (but it can still be very useful to have).
