12 input, 2 group mixing console with SPX effects

As far as table-top, mid-sized analogue mixing consoles go, Yamaha MG12XU is really the start of the full feature set for the MG series.

Sure, there are smaller models available (MG06X, MG10XUF), but MG12XU is very well appointed, and laid out in a completely logical manner – thanks in no small part to Yamaha’s long heritage in mixing consoles.

The first 4 channels have a Neutrik COMBI connector, to take either XLR or Jack input. There’s also a 1-knob compressor on each of the first 4 channels, as an easy way to bring a microphone or instrument to the fore, by applying as much (or as little) pre-set compression as you’d like.

Following the channel down, there’s 3-band eq, an Aux send (for stage monitor send, or in ears), an internal SPX effects send, pan knob, and a fader. You also get the choice of sending the signal to the Stereo (FOH) bus, or firstly to the Group 1-2 bus, which is handy if you’re grouping vocals (or drums) together for easy volume control of a group.

The next two channels can each be used for microphones, or as a stereo line channel. The only difference between these channels and the first 4, is the yellow ‘1-knob compressor’ missing from Ch 5/6 and 7/8.

There are two more stereo channels, where you can choose between Jack or RCA for Ch 9/10, and Jack/RCA or USB input for 11/12. There is no gain control or mid eq for these last two stereo channels – they are strictly for line level, program-style inputs.

Quick service and reasonable price. Angus was helpful and transparent.20/07/23 Update. I had an issue with some equipment that I purchased from these guys, and true to form, they were supportive and gave me consistent feedback on the progress of my concern. Elliot and Darren were incredibly committed to getting me a satisfactory result. I have recommended Factory Sound to my mates because I actually believe that they will be taken care of.

The only place to buy pro audio gear from. Been coming here for over 20 years, and a lot of the same staff still look after me. Says a lot about their business. The best service, advice and gear every single time. If they don’t have it, they’ll get it for you. No need to worry about pricing, theirs is ALWAYS the best. All the staff go out of their way to help you, and will always get back to you. Cant’ recommend this place enough, 5 stars doesn’t seem like enough.
