D-Pre Mic Preamps

The Yamaha MG-16 audio mixer is equipped the same low-noise/high-spec Yamaha D-PRE microphone preamps as can be found in its Steinberg interfaces and premium MGP mixers. Mono inputs are outfitted with Neutrik combo connectors to accept XLR mic/line signals or ¼” balanced inputs. 48v phantom power is available on channels 1-12 to allow for the use of dynamic mics or condensers.

Single Knob Channel Compressors

Yamaha’s one-knob smart compressors adjust threshold and attenuation in a single sweep, preventing loud signals from sticking out in your mix by evening out their dynamic range. These compressors are on the utility side of the spectrum with a natural sound that gets the job simply and without frantic knob jamming when you’re on the spot. Great for snare drums, bass guitars, and dynamic vocalists in a live setting.

Road-Ready Metal Chassis

Yamaha listened when users voiced concerns over the plastic housings found on earlier MGs. As of 2014, all Yamaha MG mixers (the MG16 included) now have rugged metal chassis to survive banging around in a backpack or travel rack. This unit is also rackmountable with the optional kit (sold separately) and includes a detachable IEC power cord to keep your rig tidy.

Worldwide Power

The Yamaha MG16’s universal power supply allows you to plug in and power up anywhere in the world. This feature is a godsend for serious touring acts and international bands. See bullets for more details.
