Top-quality digital effects built in
Yamaha digital signal processing is widely respected as the finest in the industry. It may be small, but the MG12/4FX is packed with a surprising amount of signal-processing power. Renowned Yamaha multi-effect technology brings you a range of reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, phaser, distortion, and other effects built in a total of 16 types in all. In the MG16/6FX you get a complete effects system with a range of 16 superb reverb and delay effects built right in. Each effect program has a number of editable parameters as well as effect on/off switching and return level control. Additional convenience is provided by a footswitch jack to MG12/4FX which you can connect an optional footswitch for effect on/off switching.
16 input channels
The MG16/6FX features eight mono microphone/line inputs and four stereo line inputs, two with mono microphone input capability. Gain trim covers a wide -60dB-16dB range for microphone input, and -34dB-+10dB for line input. Balanced XLR connectors are provided on all eight mono inputs and two of the stereo inputs (a total of ten XLR connectors), in addition to phone jack connectors. Two of the stereo channels can accept mono microphone input either via the XLR or phone jack connectors. The remaining two stereo inputs feature both phone jack and RCA inputs for broad connectivity. A separate stereo 2-TR input with RCA connectors is provided for independent input of signals from CD players or similar sources.
Ten low-noise, high-precision mic preamps, phantom power, and inserts
Ten high-performance head amplifiers in the MG16/6FX will bring out the best in any dynamic or condenser microphone. All high-performance mic preamps in these consoles feature switchable phantom power for studio condenser microphones. A single switch turns phantom power on or off for all channels. Mono input channels feature insert I/O patch points so you can add compressors or EQ for vocals, a noise gate on a guitar channel, or other extra signal processing to individual channels as required.
Versatile EQ for effective sound shaping
Mono channels on the MG16/6FX feature 3-band equalizers with high, low, and mid bands. High-pass filters are also provided on all microphone inputs. Stereo channels have 4-band equalizers with high, high mid, low mid, and low bands.
Six busses (stereo and group)
In addition to the main stereo bus, the MG16/6FX has an additional four group busses for a total of six busses. Stereo and group bus assign switches are located above each channel fader. You could, for example, mix your instrument sources to the stereo bus while creating separate groups for the main vocal and chorus channels… or any bus configuration you need for your application.
Aux and effect sends, versatile outputs, and 7-band EQ
The MG16/6FX has one pre-fader AUX send and one pre/post switchable AUX send, plus an additional effect send. In addition to the main L and R XLR and phone-jack stereo outputs, these versatile mixers also offer phone-jack control room, RCA-jack recording, and stereo phone-jack headphone outputs. You have plenty of outputs for a wide range of applications - monitoring, master recorder feed, etc. Phone-jack group outputs are also provided to allow independent output of the group bus mixes. Output level monitoring is made accurate and easy with high-visibility 12-segment level meters on the stereo and group busses as well as the 2-TR inputs. There's also a 7-band stereo graphic equalizer for flexible overall response shaping control or feedback reduction.
