D-PRE (Discrete Class-A mic preamps)
The preamplifier form the starting point for a good sound. The quality has to be good if a really good mix is to succeed, even if the mixing engineer makes an exceptional effort, if the mixer is not good, then the finished mix will be bad. In other words: Yamaha made this mixer to excel above many others within the same class.
The mixing consoles of the MG series feature Yamaha’s studio-grade, discrete Class-A preamps. They work with an inverted Darlington circuit that produces more power with lower impedance due to a so-called dual-transistor cascade. D-preamps deliver a fat, natural sounding bass and silky highs with extremely low tendency to distortion. Thanks to its large, well-balanced transmission range the preamps cope with all possible sources, they can be overemphasized without favoring one frequency of the sound.
Through this clean sound foundation you can save a lot of time and effort, because sweeping equalization with the EQ or other sound edits to correct the mix disappear – Problems are not present with the MG12XU.
Internal SPX Digital Effects:
In all applications with and without music the MG12XU can pass effects with a polished sound mixture and professional finish.

“1 button” Compressors:
Compression plays an important role in almost every studio production or PA. By confining what is sent to the compressor, the dynamics of audio signals, basslines with more punch, tighter Snares, brighter vocals or fatter Live guitar walls can be created. But it may take countless hours to get the complexity of even simply designed hardware compressors under control and to really take full advantage. The “1 button” compressors are an innovative in-house development in all the Yamaha’s, which allows you to adjust the compressor with a single knob to optimal compression.
EQ and High Pass Filter:
The MG-series also benefits from Yamaha’s unparalleled experience in the construction of audio devices. In each mono channel is a superb 3-band equalizer for precise control over the sound. Additional high-pass filters allow you to remove unwanted rumble and other low-frequency disturbances, whereby the mix can be made clearer and cleaner.
