The MGP12X and MGP16X offer 12 and 16 channels respectively.
The MGP series comprises two models, the MGP12X and MGP16X, which respectively offer 12 and 16 channels of hybrid analogue / digital mixing in footprints of (respectively) 348mm and 447mm wide, by 495mm deep.
A special feature of the MGP series is Yamaha's new Class A microphone preamps and X-pressive EQ. Another feature is the Stereo Hybrid Channel. Combining analogue-style control with digital functions, a DSP engine within the channel provides three features that are staples of both installed and live sound applications - Ducker, Leveller and Stereo Image. A mid-sweep, three-band EQ for sound control and onboard A/D and D/A converters are included in the Stereo Hybrid Channel.
Other features include REV-X reverb and SPX digital multi-effects, the latter featuring 16 effects with editable parameters. USB connectivity provides integration with an iPod or iPhone, delivering digital playback while charging the device. By downloading Apple's free MGP Editor software, the iPod or iPhone functions as a controller, giving the user control of the console's effects parameters, Hybrid Channel settings and iPod playback level.
In addition, standard features include 48V phantom power, single knob compressors (with LED indicators) on each channel, a metal chassis, integrated 19" rack ears and a multi-voltage, internal power supply for worldwide use.
The new MGP Series will be on show at Yamaha's NAMM 2012 stand 6528 in Hall A of the Anaheim Convention Center, California from 19th - 21st January and will be available this spring.
