Another winner for Yamaha

Peeter K., 14.11.2014
I have owned the Yamaha MG series mixers ever since the first model series, and I have always loved them for their no-nonsense, clear and intuitive designs, very good connectivity for a mixer it's size and overall great quality, and the new MG series is by far the best. Virtually every complaint I had about the previous models has been addressed in this one.
Handling is very good, easy to use, clear and simple outline. Not too heavy, not too light. Faders feel nice, knobs give good feedback. And they finally built the PSU inside the mixer! That was my biggest complaint to Yamaha for the previous ones, and also the weakest link as I have had to replace quite a few PSU-s over the years.
The features are plentiful: you get compression, effects, digital interface and a good sounding analogue EQ on a single 12-channel board. A few other mixers offer the one-knob compression, but I have not seen one that sounds so good. The effects are useable. Routing options are quite ample for aa mixer this size. The EQ sounds very nice, however it would be perfect if they would have added a sweepable mid band like on its bigger brothers. Setting up the digital interface with my iPad was effortless and only took a driver installation to work perfectly on a Win7 PC.
The new preamps sound definately better than the old ones. Also, the built-in DAC seems to be a quality one. Overall, the board sounds very good. Period.
As is customary for Yamaha, the build quality is immaculate. The chassis is metal again, although the sides are still plastic. Still, it looks sturdy and a good compromise between weight and durability. As with the previous models, I have no doubt that it will serve for a long time.
All in all, highly recommended and very versatile board.

What a great sounding mixer and sound card!

16.02.2017
When I bought my DAW I first used a cheap M-Audio interface that had no latency but didn't have a great mic pre-amp. I later upgraded to a Scarlett 18i20, and while it sounded better, it had HORRIBLE latency. No matter what I did it was nothing but trouble. I researched to no end and finally found an engineer to recommended using a mixer.
I had researched the Yamaha MG12XU 12-Channel Mixer because I wanted to create a live performance outfit, and so since I needed a mixer to reduce latency, and the Yamaha was inexpensive and had good reviews, I bought it.
I can't believe how much better it sounds. One of the issues with the Scarlett was lack of compression in the input signal chain prior to the sound card. The dynamics were so great it was hard to get a good sound. The onboard compressors in the Yamaha really help control the sound and, combined with the fantastic pre-amps, I am stunned by the difference in the quality of sound I get on acoustic guitars and vocals. My microphones all sound 10x better than they did before.
As for latency...WHAT LATENCY? It is amazing.
