OUR PART # MGP32X
At the heart of the MGP's compact configuration, Yamaha has added an innovative approach to the utilization of digital technology in an analog mixer by adding high-resolution effects, iPod/iPhone integration and the Stereo Hybrid Channel. The MGP Series represents the balance of converging technologies that are the heart and soul of Yamaha's extraordinary achievements in professional audio.
In addition to the complete redesign of the internal circuitry—from the mic preamps to the power supply— Yamaha also took a new, more intuitive approach to the knob design and control surface of the MGP Series consoles. The new color coordinated design is not only attractive and professional, but also help visually guide the operator's hands to the intended functions.
Not just for live bands and DJ's, the MG Series mixing consoles can easily adapt to a truly impressive range of applications from portable PA to fixed installation. Now with the newly added digital functions and superior sound of the MGP, the possibilities are endless.
When it comes to audio engineering and sound reinforcement, the verdict is in—nothing beats the warmth and musicality of analog sound. By incorporating state-of-the-art digital technologies into the development process of their premium professional analog equipment, the MGP is the next step in the evolution of compact professional mixers by Yamaha.
The preamp is where sound creation begins, and ultimately determines the character and quality of your overall mix. The importance of this critical first step inspired us to develop the most fat and warm sounding preamps possible - Yamaha's newly refined D-PRE mic preamps. Initially intended for use with Yamaha's high-end recording gear, these studio-grade, discrete Class-A mic preamps employ an inverted Darlington circuit design that features multiple circuitry elements in a multi-layered configuration in order to deliver more power with lower impedance. This means all the character, depth and feel of your original signal will be delivered with fat, natural sounding bass and smooth, soaring highs. Rediscover a favourite mic or trusted instrument by capturing the full range of your musical expression with sound that you don't hear, so much as feel. With 48V phantom power for each channel and a sound that is incomparable in a compact mixer today, these studio-grade discrete Class-A mic preamps set the MGP apart, clearly defining a class all its own.
Everyone knows vintage EQ sounds great—but not everyone knows why. Throughout the development of the VCM (Virtual Circuit Modeling) effects used in Yamaha's high-end professional digital mixers, they became increasingly focused on reproducing the warmth and musicality of classic vintage EQs. It was through precise modeling of the original circuitry of some of the most sought-after EQ modules from the past that they discovered a characteristic “X-shape” of the frequency curves that was unique to these units— and would ultimately prove essential to unlocking real vintage authenticity. More than just a means of tweaking your mix, the precise response and very steep shelving of the high and low frequencies make the X-pressive EQ a powerful sound-shaping tool that essentially redefines the role that EQ plays in sound reinforcement. Never before has an audio engineer's contribution to the overall sound been so significant, with X-pressive EQ providing complete control of every aspect of your sonic palette.
Originally a Yamaha innovation, 1-knob compression is now a popular feature on an increasing number of compact mixing consoles with good reason. These intelligent compressors add optimally set compression to a wide variety of input sources with the touch of a single control - minus the hassle of setting up and configuring complex outboard gear. The MGP features Yamaha's newly upgraded 1-knob compressors that feature LED indicators allowing you to visually monitor when the compression “kicks in” on each channel.
Internal Universal Power Supply
You can plug in with confidence in any region with 100V-240V power thanks to our highly-efficient internal universal power supply. With its multi-voltage design, the MGP ensures worry-free operation in potentially damaging environments with fluctuating power levels. An Internal power supply also simplifies rack mounting of the console at installed applications, with no need for a bulky adapter or additional connections.
The MGP is the realization of a new approach towards the utilization of digital technologies in a mixer, offering simple, analog-style control of sophisticated DSP functions. One of the most compelling features of analog gear is the direct, hands-on, intuitive operation that unites the operator with the console. The MGP sought to keep this feel consistent throughout the design to offer a wealth of functionality, yet with a simple, familiar touch.
Digital Connectivity for Your iPod/iPhone
In response to the growing demand for compatibility with iPod/iPhone, iPod/iPhone integration with the MGP offers much more than simple playback. With a single connection your Apple device is transformed into a flexible controller, giving you more detailed control of your MGP console.
USB Device Recording and PlayBack
It's easy to archive every performance when recording is this easy. The record function allows direct recording to a conventional USB storage device. Choose from Stereo Out or Matrix Out 1 and 2 as the source, and select WAV or MP3 as file formats. Playback of audio files is also supported with the USB device. You can easily route this to a hybrid channel or to monitor out.
