Gold Coverage: (What’s This?)

Yamaha

Ideal for small-group recording or live sound.

The Yamaha 10-Input stereo mixer offers sonic quality that will satisfy the most critical listener, surprising flexibility and ease-of-use, and some advanced features you normally wouldn't find in this type of compact mixer.

Inputs & Channels

Flexible 10-Input Channel Configurations
The Yamaha mixer has a total of 10 input channels comprised of two mono microphone/line channels and four stereo line channels. The stereo channel can be used as mono microphone inputs, providing a total of four microphone inputs when necessary. Gain trim covers a wide -60dB - -16dB range for microphone input, and -34dB - +10dB for line input.

Comprehensive, Easy-access Connector Panel
Top-mounted input and output connectors make setting up and re-patching your system quick and easy. The Yamaha mixer features high-quality Neutrik balanced XLR connectors on both 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 two stereo channels on the Yamaha 10-Input stereo mixer provide phone jack and pin jack connectors for compatibility with a wide range of sources. The two 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.

Four High-Performance Microphone Preamplifiers with Switchable Phantom Power
Microphone preamplifiers are critical in any mixer, and a performance bottleneck in many. That's why pros often spend thousands of dollars on just a single channel of microphone pre-amplification. The microphone preamps built into the MG mixers 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 four microphone preamps also 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 four channels.

Built-in Channel Compressors
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. You won't find built-in channel compression on too many other mixers in this class, but in the Yamaha mixer you have Yamaha's innovative one-knob compression feature on mono input channels 1 and 2. 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.

3-band Channel EQ and High-pass Filter
Building a truly useful, musical-sounding channel equalizer is no easy task, but Yamaha has decades of experience in building pro consoles to draw on, and you reap the benefits in the MG-series mixers. Channels 1, 2, 3/4, and 5/6 feature full 3-band equalizers with LOW, MID, and HIGH controls, while channels 7/8 and 9/10 have 2-band EQ for smooth equalization of stereo sources.

Master & output section

Effect/Aux Sends
The Yamaha MG102C stereo mixer has AUX send controls on all channels, and these adjust the level of the signal sent from the corresponding channel to the AUX SEND jack that can be used to feed external effects or a monitor system. A RETURN control in the master section of both models adjusts the level of the signal returned from external processors via the RETURN jacks.

Stereo, Control Room, Monitor, and Headphone Outputs
Located above the audio mixer's master controls, on the convenient easy-access connector panel, are the main stereo output connectors, phone-jack monitor output connectors, pin-jack recording outputs, and a stereo headphone jack. They may be compact, but these mixers offer plenty of connectivity for a wide range of applications

Lightweight, Portable Design
The Yamaha MG102C weighs only 1.6 and 1.5 kilograms. That's small enough to pop into your briefcase or shoulder bag and easily take with you anywhere. But the performance you'll get at the studio, club, outdoors, or anywhere you choose to use these fine mixers is far from lightweight.

Bright Meters for Visual Level Monitoring
Accurate visual level monitoring can help you achieve maximum signal-to-noise ratio without distortion. The MG mixer's bright, easy-to-read 12-segment LED meters make it easy to control system levels for optimum overall performance.

Easy Operation

All switches, controls, and displays have been designed and laid out for intuitive access and smooth, reliable operation with positive tactile and visual feedback.

Features

  • 10-input, 2-bus design
  • 2 mic mono, 2 mic/line stereo, 2 line stereo channels
  • 2 channels of single-knob compression
  • 3-band EQ on mic input channels

    This little guys is the perfect place to start if you need a small and simple mixer. The mic-pres sound good and a pretty transparent. The EQ can be a little noisy but still good for small adjustments and tweaks. The compressors are good for smoothing out levels they dont have a quick enough attack time to work on a drum kit very well but for vocals and guitars they do their job well. Yamaha builds great gear and this one is no exception, a 10 input mixer with 2 channel compressors, you'd be hard pressed to fid a better deal for the money
    Compression, 3-band EQ, one Aux send/return and stereo panning all work great. The compression is especially a nice find on such an inexpensive model. If you're looking for more features you can spend a little more and get the model with the built in effects.
    Built pretty solidly but still light enough to carry in a backpack or gig bag. The knobs turn smoothly and the connectors fit well
    For the price this mixer is probably one of the best out there.

    This was a restock item I purchased, so I didn't expect it be cosmetically perfect, but did expect it to function properly. Both the main and monitor volumes did not work when it arrived. I was under the mistaken impression that these restock items were, at least, given a check over before they were resold. Apparently not, however, in their usual great fashion, Musician's Friend, made it all right. I didn't want to take a chance on another one of these, so I found a new Peavy mixer that was the same price and they swapped it out at no additional cost to me. You can never go wrong buying from Musician's Friend. They live up to their name.

      Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

      Using this as a sub-mixer for live drums. For less than 100 clams you get what you pay for. XLR inputs on channels 1 and 2 are really finicky about the cables used plus no effect inserts on channels 3 and 4 makes this an OK mixer for one guy in a bedroom that is going to leave it set up.

        We are using it with our electric drums.
        The drums go into a channel, the main mix with vocals goes in and the lead guitar goes in.
        This way, the drummer can set his mix the way he wants it, and with a headset, he can hear what he wants.

          This was a brand new mixer, maybe I just got a bad one. ??? Like the 6 chan. I can put voice or instrument into. Small but yet sufficient. Did not like the controls had to turn up over half before I had any sound both gain and volume. Quality was bad. Traded in for a Pevey PV-8 instead. I am sold on Peavey. A friend told me about this mixer and thought I would try it. Musicians Friend is a superb company have had no issues and don't expect any from them.

                This seems really designed for studio and recording work. The monitor functions are not for performance monitors. Can't use the Aux buss for stage monitors as they are post-fader (and therefore affected by changes to the house mix) and there is no Aux Send level to control the Aux mix level sent to powered stage monitors.

                If you can live with these limitation it is a nice mixer.

                      Great for events when you don't need many inputs. I use it for parties and hook up an iPod on one channel and a mic for another. Beats lugging around my 32 channel board when I don't need to.

                      By Calaverasgrande

                      from Oakland Ca

                      Comments about Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression:

                      This is a decent small mixer. I like the form factor and the knobs all feel sturdy. My few gripes are the line lump power supply. It's always annoying to deal with those kind of power supplies though they do save you from the wall wart/power strip problem.
                      The single aux send is pretty limiting I would really have rather had a second aux than the wierd monitor output that really serves no purpose for me. It merely duplicates teh stereo buss however without a volume control? What is the point?
                      I purchased this mixer about a year and a half ago. I did a buncha research to try and find a reasonably priced mini mixer for my synths/drum machines. There were a few that had built in effects or more inputs. But what prompted me to pick this product was the availability of the mic stand bracket accessory.
                      So far it has worked raesonably well. The sound quality is not anythign to write home about. But it isnt terribly noisy or too muddy sounding.
                      It is a tiny bit more than comparable mixers from Behringer. However I feel that Yamaha has a long history of making good value mixers. I have a PM180 fmor the early 80s that I do a lot of recording with, I also have some PM1000 channel strips racked up for drum recording.
                      While this doesnt sound nearly as good as those old pieces, I feel that Yamaha does try to keep in the game with all of its recording products.
