A versatile mixer

Lionel de Pertuis, 21.07.2015
We bought this mixer to sound a group of ten musicians who play to accompany the mass in a church and also singing. They are mainly acoustic instruments: violin, flute, clarinet, sax alto and soprano, acoustic guitars and also a harmonium (electronic organ) that I connect via its headphone output (which causes some problems)
The table is very fast to take in hand and in 2O to 30 minutes everyone is connected and the scale made quickly. What is tricky is juggling the entrances. Although it has 12 inputs, only half are microphone inputs or have gain adjustment and only 4 have a compressor and attenuator pad. So we must anticipate the patch if not the last instruments are out and the guitars last minutes, we do not know where to put them! I had a problem with an electroacoustic guitar that gave nothing on a line input so I was forced to put it on a microphone input (and -1 micro) by increasing its gain and also with the harmonium which has a Low impedance headphone output and outputs a high current. When I plugged into a line input, I had no sound output by the master while I heard the headphone plugged on the table! I deduced that the table "clipped" because the signal was too strong. So I plugged the harmonium into a 1 to 4 mic / line input that has a -26 db attenuator pad and with the gain adjustment on both sides (table and organ), it goes well but I still lost A micro slice!
The sound is very good, the compressors and filters work well, both groups are practical to use (I put the singer on master and the other instruments on group 1-2) and then I switch the switch 1-2 on Master, which allows to have a single cable master out connected to the church amp but to manage separately the song and the instruments on the table.
The negatives: damage that there is no adjustment of gain on the slices 9/10 and 11/12 and no attenuator -26 db on these entries lines.
I admit to having myself also had by the panoramic adjustment. I go out all about master out right for example to a mono input of the church amp and if you do not pay attention to the setting of each of the tracks and the panning is in the middle, you lose half the power, It's stupid and you do not really notice it with the meter. A global PAN to master L or R of all channels would be more convenient. The ON / OFF buttons and the faders are very handy. The adjustment of the returns is more delicate, the potentiometer is less practical and as I play an instrument at the same time I correct the table, sometimes I regret that it is not a fader too. The manufacturing quality and robustness are very good. If one thinks well of its number of mini tracks and the location of each one, it is a Swiss knife to advise to all those who want a product of quality versatile.

Best features, but unfortunately the sound disappears ...

MarieHuana, 10.04.2017
The Yamaha MG12 shines with fantastic features, many routing options and a simple and logical operation. That's why it was ordered :-)

Unfortunately, unfortunately, the sound is no longer what the Yamaha brand has been making for decades ... In addition, we have also been familiar with audio equipment from a variety of brands for several decades. But unfortunately, over the years, I find more and more often a "Verschlimmbesserung" of the sound. It's no wonder, the small boxes are full of numerous features to compete with their competitors. But the sound of a mixing console - no matter how big or small - should actually have top priority, right?

So what did we notice? The overall sound - across all outputs - is relatively weak compared to similar small mixers of the last 10 years, for example, professional string samples from the workstation sound like a bad stage monitor, the transient processing is probably also rather suboptimal. Everything sounds like "through a gray haze" through, so colorless and lifeless. In any case, it does not come out of the mixer, which goes in as a source of high quality. Tested on high quality studio equipment, as well as high quality headphones. The difference is definitely audible! I'm not used to that at Yamaha. Even a cheaper comparison mixer from Phonic (MM122 - about 10 years old) beats the Yamaha MG12 in terms of "reproducible original sound of the audio source" by far. But the Yamaha features without end ... But what's it? S?

It's a pity that in the last years the sound gets worse and worse. The same improvements in terms of "sound" we have also noticed in the past few years extremely headphone and microphone preamplifiers ... Why do you have to put these days 10 times Euronen on the table, if you at least get the quality of 10 years ago would like to? Anyway, the Yamaha MG12 is being swapped for the benefit of an Allen & Heath ZED 14. Of course, the corresponding test report for the ZED 14 follows as well. Hopefully we can report more positively then ...
