Overview

The Yamaha MG16/4 16-Input 4-Bus Mixer does everything it needs to do for a wonderful price.

16 input channels

8 mono microphone/line inputs and 4 stereo line inputs. 2 of the stereo inputs also offer mono microphone input capability.

10 low-noise, high-precision mic preamps

10 high-performance head amplifiers will deliver optimum performance with any dynamic or condenser microphone.

Phantom power

All 10 mic preamps feature switchable phantom power for studio condenser microphones. A single switch turns phantom power on or off for all 10 channels.

Insert I/O

Add compressors, EQ, or other signal-processing gear to the mono channels as required via insert I/O patch points.

4 buses (stereo and group)

The MG16/4 features a stereo group bus and outputs that can be used for convenient channel grouping, in addition to the main stereo bus.

3-band channel EQ and HPF

Smooth, musical-response 3-band equalizers on all input channels. All mono microphone input channels also feature a switchable high-pass filter that can be used to cut out unwanted low-frequency noise.

2 aux sends and stereo aux return

Each input channel has 2 auxiliary sends-”one post-fader and one switchable for pre- or post-fader operation-”affording plenty of flexibility for external signal processing and monitoring. A stereo auxiliary return is also provided.

Illuminated switches

Illuminated ON (ST bus assign), PFL (pre-fader listen), and phantom-power switches provide easy visual confirmation of critical console settings.

Rackmount adapters included

Desktop or rackmounted, your MG mixer will happily integrate in any setup. Rackmount adapters are provided.

it's pretty good

By JoshrLyon

from Shreveport, LA

I like it. It has plenty of channels and is very durable. The only comlaint i have is that in order to apply an internal effect, you have to sacrifice an AUX send. This is killer for people like me who like to have 2 or more monitor mixes. i've looked at other mixers like this one and it stands pretty close to the top. But i have to say that in this price range the Behringer Xenyx 2442FX stands alone at the top.

I Always Trust Yamaha

By SR506 player

from FL

I bought this mixer almost 2 years ago. It has never failed on me, never complined about this. Its very good for live playing and even better for recording. Its got everything I need in a mixer. Of course it's not as good as 30 input mixers, but, hey its great for a band playing live, or home reocrding in the comfort of your own studio. Overall it's a Yamaha so relax, it's a good mixer for it's money.

Good mixer for the price range

By Joel

from Eugene, OR

I got this mixer to use both for live sound and some demo recording, and its worked great. Recently I updated to a yamaha digital board, but for what this mixer tries to accomplish it does fairly well. The number of channels gave it good versatility and the preamps were pretty good. I had a bit of issues with noise on a few of the channels, but its to be expected on a lower line mixer. The only thing I think is restricting is the number of outputs. Since there's only 2 AUX outs it limits you to 2 monitors, or 4 recording channels if you pan everything out. If you're looking for a board to give you a wide range of use and versatility, and aren't looking to spend a ton, this is a good choice.
