The Yamaha MGP24X 24-Channel Mixer is a compact analog mixer with cutting-edge digital technologies like discrete Class-A microphone preamps, inverted Darlington circuit design, D-PRE mic preamps, and Yamaha's proprietary X-pressive EQ. Perfect for live bands, DJs, portable PA and fixed installation.

The Yamaha MGP24X 24-Channel Mixer represents the ultimate balance of the converging technologies that are the heart and soul of Yamaha's extraordinary achievements in professional audio.

The Evolution of Analog
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 Yamaha's premium professional analog equipment, the Yamaha MGP24X is the next step in the evolution of compact professional mixers.

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 Yamaha MGP24X apart, clearly defining a class all its own.

X-pressive EQ
Everyone knows vintage EQ sounds great—but not everyone knows why. Throughout the development of the innovative VCM (Virtual Circuit Modeling) effects used in Yamaha's high-end professional digital mixers, Yamaha became increasingly focused on reproducing the warmth and musicality of classic vintage EQs. It was through Yamaha's 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.

1-Knob Compressors
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 Yamaha MGP24X features their 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 Yamaha's highly-efficient internal universal power supply. With its multi-voltage design, the Yamaha MGP24X 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 use for a bulky adapter or additional connections.

A Revolution in Digital
The Yamaha MGP24X 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 Yamaha MGP24X sought to keep this feel consistent throughout the design to offer a wealth of functionality, yet with a simple, familiar touch.

Hybrid Channel
40 Years of experience working with professional mixers has led Yamaha to offer a new way of approaching sound reinforcement in the digital age: the Stereo Hybrid Channel. Beneath the analog-style knobs and encoders of the Yamaha MGP24X Mixing Console lies a sophisticated digital control system—a fusion that combines traditional analog feel with the functionality that only digital technology can offer. The Yamaha MGP24X utilizes a powerful, proprietary DSP to provide three essential features that are staples of both installed and live sound applications. In keeping with the theme of analog simplicity found throughout the Yamaha MGP24X design, each of these functions is readily accessible and available at the touch of a button. Featuring a mid-sweep, three-band EQ for nuanced sound control and high-performance onboard A/D and D/A converters, the Stereo Hybrid Channel offers unique functionality with superior sound.

Priority Ducker
An invaluable feature for applications that require both public-speaking and background music, Priority Ducker allows a microphone to take priority over another sound source automatically, just by speaking into the mic. Stop talking and the other sound source is brought back to its original level, therefore no console operator is required for this simple yet valuable function. You can even adjust the ducker attenuation of sound source depending on your preferences.

This intelligent compressor “auto levels” different tracks from a sound source that vary in volume, providing a more pleasurable listening experience. Ideal for small events with un-manned operation of your console, Yamaha's proprietary DSP algorithm allows for extended play time without the worry of fluctuating volume levels distracting your listeners.

The Stereo Image
The Stereo Image function seamlessly narrows the pan balance of the stereo sound source so that audiences spread over a wide area can enjoy a comfortably blended mix. This is particularly helpful for installed sound applications that requires background music. Using either of the two optimized settings—MONO and BLEND— Stereo Image ensures that everyone is in the "sweet spot" by providing a more optimally mixed sound to the entire space.

Dual Digital Effects
The Yamaha MGP24X Mixing Console offers 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.

Digital Connectivity for Your iPod/iPhone
In response to the growing demand for compatibility with iPod/iPhone, iPod/iPhone integration with the Yamaha MGP24X 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 Yamaha MGP24X Console.

MGP Editor
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 the Yamaha MGP24X, setting of GEQ and Master comp can be adjusted. Direct playback of iTunes play list is also possible.

Graphic EQ
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
The Yamaha MGP24X Mixer is the first mixer 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.

High-Quality Digital Playback
The Yamaha MGP24X features a built-in USB port to connect and charge your iPod or iPhone for seamless playback with a single connection. A direct digital connection offers a much higher level of quality with more detail and clarity than typical analog inputs can provide.

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. Transfer speed requirements are strict for recordings made in WAV format. Normal recording may not be possible when using certain stick type USB memory devices. Yamaha recommends using a USB hard disk with a fast transfer speed or an SSD (Solid State Drive). When recording in MP3 format, any stick style USB memory, hard disk, or SSD can be used.
