Features

MG Series mixers feature AUX sends for expanding your sound reinforcement or recording setup, allowing you to incorporate the internal, or external effects, output to external recording devices, or feed to a monitoring system. Master send controls are also provided. The MG12XU features 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.

A variety of input / output connectors

All MG 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.

LED level metering

Easy-to-read LED level metering allows output levels to be monitored with precision.

Built-in SPX Digital Effects

For musical and non-musical applications alike, effects processing adds polish and professionalism to the mix. The MG12XU 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.

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 life of the components inside. To further ensure reliable performance, knob control placement above the surface of the chassis diverts any impact or pressure on the knobs to the chassis itself and not the circuit board or components underneath.

Internal Universal Power Supply
Thanks to a highly-efficient internal universal power supply, MG Series consoles offer worry-free operation in any region around the globe—even in environments prone to potentially damaging power fluctuations. An internal power supply also simplifies rack mounting of the console for installed applications, eliminating the need for a bulky adapter or additional connections.

XLR connector

The main stereo outputs feature XLR type connectors that lock to prevent accidental disconnection. Rugged and dependable, these professional connectors ensure providing stable signal transmission even in the most demanding environments.

Create, record … listen

The MG Series features the same digital connectivity that is used to streamline the recording process on Yamaha’s professional-level mixing consoles. Take advantage of state-of-the-art digital technology that makes it easier than ever to plug-in, play, record, and then listen to your creations.

24-bit /192kHz 2-in/2-out USB Audio Interface Function

MG Series mixing consoles feature flexible digital connectivity for quick and easy high resolution playback of digital content. Simply connect to your PC via USB, or to your iPhone / iPad (2 or later) using Apple's Camera Connection Kit / Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. The USB protocol uses asynchronous data transfer. Audio data is transferred based on highly precise audio clock signal from the MG, for high quality recording and playback.

Cubase AI

The MG12XU is bundled with Downloadable Steinberg Cubase AI software. As one of the most advanced, comprehensive DAW suites available, Steinberg's Cubase has led the charge, providing users with a powerful and flexible platform for music production.

Answer

Thank you for getting in touch. Usually, you'd need a standard USB-A-to-USB-B cable to connect the the MG12XU to most laptops. If your laptop only features USB-C ports, you'd either need a USB-B-to-USB-C cable or a USB-C-to-USB-A adapter/dongle.
