The Yamaha MG124C covers a wide range of applications from
solo home recording to complex live sound with no compromises in sonic
quality, processing versatility, or dependability.
The Yamaha MG124C has a total of 12 input channels – four mono
microphone/line inputs and four stereo line inputs. Two 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 ~ +dB for
10 Top-mounted input and output connectors make setting up and
re-patching your system quick and easy. The Yamaha MG124C features
high-quality Neutrik balanced XLR connectors on all four mono
microphone/line channels and two of the stereo channels. 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. The microphone preamps built into the Yamaha MG124C
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. Conventional audio compressors with their threshold, ratio,
knee, makeup gain and other controls can be complex and time-consuming
to set appropriately for a given source. Yamaha's one-knob compressor
eliminates the need for an engineering degree 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 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. Channel and master level control is accomplished via
reliable, high-performance 60-millimeter linear faders that provide
smooth, noise-free operation. An important advantage of linear faders is
that they provide a direct visual indication of relative level
In spite of the fact that they offer 12 channels, four buses, and a
wealth of advanced features, the MG124C is small and light enough (only
2.9 kilograms) to be tucked under an arm and set up just about anywhere.
The remarkable Yamaha MG124C mixer provide significant space savings
along with huge performance benefits.
