Yamaha has provided an impressive range of lineups in professional audio since the release of the PM200 in 1972 - our first ever professional analog mixing console. In 1987, we also released our first digital mixer, the DMP7, and have subsequently advanced technological innovations in sound quality, reliability and advanced functionalities with cutting-edge digital technologies.
Drawing from our decades of experience crafting innovative, premium analog gear, we originally developed our new discrete Class-A microphone preamps for professional use in our high-end recording equipment. Utilizing an inverted Darlington circuit design, our newly-refined D-PRE mic preamps deliver a fat, rich, smooth tone that gives the MGP Series a significant advantage over any other mixer in its class. With Yamaha's proprietary X-pressive EQ we've managed to capture ultimate analog authenticity by unlocking the mysterious secret behind the expressive sound shaping capabilities of sought-after classic EQ modules.
At the heart of the MGP's compact configuration, we've taken an innovative new approach to the utilization of digital technology in an analog mixer; adding high-resolution effects, iPod/iPhone integration and the superb functionality of our new Stereo Hybrid Channel to the warmth and musicality of premium analog sound. The MGP Series represents the ultimate balance of the converging technologies that are the heart and soul of Yamaha's extraordinary achievements in professional audio.
Dual Digital Effects
MGP Series mixing consoles offer two separate studio-grade effects processors for ultimate enhancement of your sound, with simple intuitive control. Yamaha's high-end REV-X reverb offers three very musical and natural high-resolution reverb effects: Hall, Room and Plate—a first for any Yamaha analog mixer. For more sound-shaping possibilities, Yamaha's renowned SPX digital multi-effect processor provides a useful selection of 16 advanced digital effects with editable parameters. Both processors can be used simultaneously, giving you a vast array of tools to colour your sound.
MGP Editor is a free software application that gives you additional control of your console's DSP settings via your iPod/iPhone. With a simple and intuitive graphic display, MGP Editor gives you additional, detailed control of your REV-X and SPX effects parameters-as well as Hybrid Channel's Priority Ducker, Leveler and iPod/iPhone's playback settings. With MGP32X and 24X, setting of GEQ and Master comp can be adjusted. Direct playback of iTunes play list is also possible.
Graphic EQ (MGP32X/24X)
The new Graphic EQ feature 14 band and flex 9 band modes that can easily be controlled via internal display. This Flex EQ is also used in Yamaha’s pro-level CL series consoles. By limiting the number of bands for boost and cut, the extra DSP can be employed to narrow the filters to 1/3 octave, and allow the user to sweep the filter to the range where adjustment is required. With 31 different filter positions, very fine adjustments can be made. Additionally, finding and reducing feedback is quick and easy using the offset/gain controls to point out vulnerable frequencies before the feedback occurs.
Multi-band Compressor (MGP32X/24X)
The MGP32X and MGP24X are the first mixers in this class to be equipped with a master compressor on the stereo bus. Both a standard type (COMP) and a three-band divided (Multi-band) master compressor have been built in. Using a master compressor allows you to reduce the overall dynamic range of the signal to fit the environment, and protect the sound system from overloads. A total of 8 memory scenes (3 read only and 5 user defined) allow settings to easily be stored and recalled as needed quickly.
