Great for my Home Recording needs

By Michael

from Bronx, New York

Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

I bough this mixer mainly to record vocals in combination with a TASCAM DP-03 recorder, and the quality is amazing, this mixer has it all, including 24 different sound effects. And remember that it's a mixer not a multi track recorder, which means that the USB connection mixes down all instruments and michrophones connected, and send to the CUBASE recording software. The Yamaha MG16XU it's made of metal en the top of the console, solid plastic on the sides, and the knobs are plastic also, but durable. This Mixer has universal voltage auto regulator, giving you the freedom of traveling anywhere in the world without any extra current converter. So far it's a excellent piece of instrument and I strongly recomend it..

Love this mixer

By Bishop

from Peoria IL

Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

I am learning how to work this mixer, but through it all it mets what I expect in the end, with some of the spec, clear sound, and powerful board this mixer have been effective in many ways. I have alot more to learn only had the mixer for a week now, and I hope to add one more Dig-Mixter to the studio. Building a small but productive home studio, and is working on turning it into a perfessional studio within the youth ministry without having to pay alot of money in the end.

    Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

    Picked this up at the Westlake Guitar Center store in Seattle, and took it home. It replaced another large format rack mixer that broke that morning. So the same day I went in and took it home. All I have to say is wow! Great sound quality, the compression is very good for solid state / digital and I have been using it every day for THREE YEARS of daily use! It's very easy to switch on/off thru my rack, the bottom is thin so it can be mounted right above another large rack mixer w/ all the room for it's cables. The USB recording quality is decent but the analog outs are really where this unit shines.

      Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

      By the time my 7-year-old Behringer 12-channel (6 mics) board bit the dust, I needed a mixer with more features. High on the list were 10 mic inputs, the ability to control 4 independently-mixed monitor feeds, and on-board effects. The MG16XU filled all those needs and more. I'm still acquainting myself with the board and the ways channels can be routed through it, but my impression so far is: WOW! Yamaha was highly recommended by a few audio folks I trust, all of whom praise the board's sound, and I needed to graduate from micing singers to mixing a full 5-piece band for outdoor gigs. This will do it the job nicely. A nice step up for anyone who needs to enter the world of full-sized mixing environments.

      Comments about Yamaha MG16XU 16-Channel Mixer:

      We use this mixer for live sound gigs. Indoor with up to 150 people and outdoors with up to 300 people. This mixer sounds excellent. We had a smaller mixer from another company but this mixer makes the band sound great! Effects aren't the best but works for most situations. (Better than nothing). We use three vocal mics, three acoustic guitars, bass guitar, drum machine and midi controller with inputs to spare. It is a bit on the pricey side for a small band but with the excellent job that it does, it is well worth the expense. Yamaha quality indeed.
