Yamaha MG16XU Live Mixer

Yamaha The MG16XU is a 16-channel live mixer with 10 mic/16 line inputs (8 mono + 4 stereo), 4 AUX sends, compressors, 48 V phantom power, PAD switch on mono inputs, 3-band EQ, and high pass filter to eliminate low frequencies.

MG models are all built with powder-coated metal chassis that make the mixer rugged and durable, while the design acts as passive cooling for components.


D-PRE mic preamps

D-PRE mic preamps use inverted Darlington circuitry with two transistors in cascade, giving Yamaha MG16XU more power and lower impedance. The preamp also has particularly wide frequency response, enabling the mixer to amplify all audio signals.

24 SPX effects + Cubase AI DAW software

Yamaha The MG16XU is equipped with 24 adjustable SPX digital effects that help make your mix truly unique. You'll find high-resolution chorus, flanger, distortion, reverb and delay, all of which have parameters that can be adjusted as needed.

Yamaha The MG16XU also comes licensed with Cubase AI DAW software, giving you more tools for music production.
