For applications requiring up to 12 input channels the Yamaha MG124C Mixer offers stunning MG-series sound plus an extra margin of signal-routing versatility. In spite of the fact that it has 12 channels, 4 buses, and a wealth of advanced features, the MG124C Stereo Mixer is small and light enough (only 2.9 kilograms) to be tucked under an arm and set up just about anywhere. This remarkable sound mixer provides significant space savings along with huge performance benefits.
The MG124C both has a total of 12 input channels- 4 mono microphone/line inputs and 4 stereo line inputs. 2 of the stereo line inputs can also function as mono microphone inputs, giving you up to six simultaneous mono microphone inputs when needed. Gain trim covers a wide -60dB - -16dB range for microphone input, and -34dB - +10dB for line input.
Top-mounted input and output connectors make setting up and re-patching your system quick and easy. The XLR-equipped stereo channels can accept mono microphone input either via the XLR or phone jack connectors. The remaining stereo channels provide phone jack and pin jack connectors for compatibility with a wide range of sources. The four mono input channels also feature insert I/O connectors that let you patch external signal processing gear into those channels as required. Separate pin-jack 2TR inputs are provided to accept the output from a CD player or similar stereo source.
The microphone preamplifiers in any mixer are critical to its overall performance. T he microphone preamps built into the MG mixers inherit technology from Yamaha's top-line professional consoles, and have been painstakingly designed to deliver superior sonic performance with any dynamic or condenser microphone. All six microphone preamps feature switchable phantom power so you can take advantage of the natural, extended response of high-quality condenser microphones. A single switch turns phantom power on or off for all microphone channels.
Built-in channel dynamics is usually only found on high-end (and very expensive) consoles. The MG124C features Yamaha's innovative one-knob compression feature on mono input channels 1 through 4. This advanced feature can be a tremendous advantage in achieving great vocal sound. It can also be used to refine the sound of bass, guitar, and other sources. Yamaha's one-knob compressor eliminates the need for having an engineer on staff with a single control that lets you simply dial in the amount of compression you want.
In addition to the main stereo bus the MG124C mixer features a stereo group bus and outputs that can be used for convenient channel grouping. Assign switches for the stereo and group buses are located next to each channel fader.
All input channels feature illuminated channel ON switches chat can be used to individually add or remove channels from the mix without having to change the positions of the channel faders.
The Yamaha MG124C has dual AUX send controls for each channel, one switchable for pre- or post-fader operation, and one fixed for pre-fader send. Master send controls are also provided, as are RETURN level controls for the AUX and STEREO busses.
Located above the mixer's master controls, on the convenient easy-access connector panel, are the main stereo output connectors, phone-jack monitor output connectors, pin-jack recording outputs, and a stereo headphone jack. These versatile mixers offer plenty of connectivity for a wide range of applications.
Channel and master level control is accomplished via reliable, high-performance 60-millimeter linear faders that provide smooth, noise-free operation.
All switches, controls, and displays have been designed and laid out for intuitive access and smooth, reliable operation with positive tactile and visual feedback.
