Yamaha MG20 Analog Mixer at a Glance:

D-PRE discrete Class-A mic preamps deliver clean and natural sound
One-knob compressors provide easy-to-use dynamics control
EQ and highpass filters allow for effective sound-shaping
High quality op-amp ensures transparent sound reproduction
D-PRE discrete Class-A mic preamps deliver clean and natural sound
Nobody wants to hear mics that are plugged into thin, distorted, or underpowered preamps. MG Series mixing consoles employ Yamaha's transparent D-PRE preamps, which provide more power with lower impedance, delivering natural-sounding bass and smooth highs. D-PREs simply sound good - without hyping any specific elements of your mix. The D-PRE's pure sound will ensure that you won't need to spend hours EQ-ing just to get a barely-acceptable sound, like you would with low-quality mic preamps.

One-knob compressors provide easy-to-use dynamics control

When you're in the midst of a live event, you don't have time to tweak a large number of complex outboard units. To resolve this issue, the Yamaha MG Series of analog mixers features simple, time-saving one-knob compressors. Simply twist a single rotary control and you can dial in livelier guitars, punchier basses, tighter drums, and well-defined vocals.

EQ and highpass filter allow for effective sound-shaping

Whether you're tweaking your sound to perfection or whether you're removing some unwanted frequencies, effective and powerful EQ is necessary for building a successful mix. Featuring equalizers on all mono channels, the Yamaha MG Series mixing consoles provide you with ample control over the tonal balance of your mix. Additionally, a highpass filter allows you to get rid of any mud that might be present in your mix by eliminating unwanted low-frequency noise.

High quality op-amp ensures transparent sound reproduction

Here at Sweetwater, we know that few things will kill tone as quickly as sub-par op-amps. The Yamaha MG Series utilizes new, high-quality MG01 op-amps, ensuring that your mix sounds its best. When designing these op-amps, Yamaha focused on sound quality, rather than prioritizing electrical design and efficiency. Yamaha has always strived to deliver the purest possible signal instead of imparting their "signature" to your sound, and the MG Series is no exception. You can count on a transparent, natural, and articulate sound when you mix through a MG Series analog mixer.

Yamaha MG20 Analog Mixer Features:
  • D-PRE mic preamps deliver clean, transparent, and natural sound
  • 3-band EQ on all mono channels for sound-shaping
  • 1-knob compressors provide straightforward dynamics control
  • Pad switch on mono inputs for managing loud sources
  • Metal chassis for durability
Deliver a clean and professional-sounding mix with the Yamaha MG20 analog mixer!

Mixer Review

Our band was using a Beringer 2242 USB unpowered mixer and the on board effects went out on it so we boughta TC Electronic reverb and delay processor for our effects and this worked great for us but I heard so much about Yamaha's mixers and how well they work with powered speaker systems and decided to try the MG20 mixer out. The mixer blew me away with the amount of volume and control you immediately get. The mixer works great with our TC processor and DBX drive pack speaker optimizer. We had to run our gain up to 6 or more to get the desired volume and with the Yamaha our gain is around 3 giving us Big Volume. Im very pleased with our Yamaha MG20 Mixer and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great unpowered mixer.

Needed a mixer for a stage mix system and this one filled the bill perfectly! Nice layout, lightweight, and easy to operate. Sweetwater was excellent in getting it out to me fast!!!!
