Yamaha MW12cx USB Mixing Studio

With Yamaha's new MW Series USB Mixing Studio mixers, making great music is easier than ever before.

Combined with the powerful Cubase AI4 audio/MIDI sequencing software, the new MW series provides a comprehensive tabletop studio setup for the solo recording musician and for the traveling producer/arranger.

Connect the new MW to a USB terminal on your laptop or desktop computer, and you've got an instant, high-quality audio recording studio at your command.

The MW delivers true plug-and-play USB audio input/output interfacing-without the need for special software drivers-and lets you easily record mono inputs or two- track stereo mixes of multiple sources to your computer.

Flexible 12-Channel Configuration

The MW12C both give you a total of twelve inputs, including four mono microphone/line inputs and four stereo line inputs.

Two of the stereo line inputs can also function as mono microphone inputs, providing up to six simultaneous microphone inputs if you need them.

The high-performance ultra-low-noise balanced microphone inputs also have a phantom power switch, allowing you to take advantage of the superior sonic quality of professional-level condenser microphones.

Built-in SPX Effects

For those who like the convenience of having signal processing right inside the mixer, the MW12CX incorporates a versatile digital multi-effect unit that provides a variety of reverb, delay, modulation, and distortion programs you can use to enhance your sound, or completely transform it-without the need for an external device.

Each of the 16 effect programs has a number of editable parameters as well as effect on/off switching capability and return level control.

If you need to keep both hands free to play an instrument or perform other operations, an optional footswitch can be connected to the mixer's effect footswitch jack for convenient on/off switching.

Easy-to-use 1-Knob Compression

Compression-the taming of wildly varying levels in vocals, bass and guitar-is one of the most important effects used in recording and mixing.

It is also one of the most subtle and difficult to use. Not with the new MW series mixers, however.

The innovative 1-knob analog compressor (on the mono input channels) lets you dial in just the amount of compression you need in recording, without having to set multiple parameters like threshold, ratio and makeup gain.

One knob does it all for you-instantly giving you great, punchy sound.

Easy-access Panel and High-Quality Parts

Top-mounted input and output connectors make setting up and re-patching your system quick and easy.

Both models feature high-quality Neutrik balanced XLR connectors for the microphone inputs. Long-throw, smooth-action faders give you precise and tactile control over signal levels.

The mixer also has a bright and large 12-segment LED meter for visual signal indication.

Channel On Switches

Dedicated On switches for each channel let you enable or disable (mute) individual input channels as desired, while the lamps on the switches give you instant visual indication about which channels are on.

Monitor Mix

This convenient feature gives you simple control over the balance between the signals being recorded and the playback signals being monitored.

This is particularly helpful when recording several sources at the same time, letting you use a single knob to adjust the balance of the playback and recording signals for monitoring purposes.

Naturally, this doesn't affect the recording level; it simply allows you to control what you want to hear.
