Extensive capabilities for live sound or studio applications.
The Yamaha MG32/14FX 32-Input 14 Bus Mixer with DSP Effects represents a completely no-compromise approach to PA. It's built for great sound, total control, and superior reliability and goes through the same rigorous quality and reliability tests as Yamaha's world-class PM-series mixing consoles. By taking full advantage of the latest technology and manufacturing techniques, Yamaha has been able to pack this superlative mixer with more value than you'll find anywhere else. In short, the MG32/14FX offers extraordinary performance and mixing power at remarkable prices.
If your application is live sound reinforcement, you'll want all the channel capacity you can get--just in case. Vocal mics, instrument mics, stereo keyboards, direct-injection feeds, drum mics, and the rest can add up very quickly. With 32 input channels, the MG32/14FX is ready to handle all but the most ambitious setups. And with dual SPX digital effect systems onboard, you won't need racks of outboard gear to get the sound you need. There's also a range of group and auxiliary busses to make even complex mixes easy.
32 input channels
The MG32/14FX has 24 mono microphone/line channels, with 4 stereo line channels.
Mic preamps with phantom power
All 24 mic preamps in the MG32/14FX are of exemplary quality. They offer low-noise, transparent amplification with the widest possible range of dynamic and condenser microphones, which adds up to cleaner, better-sounding mixes. All mic preamps feature switchable phantom power for studio condenser microphones. Phantom power is switchable in 8-channel groups.
Illuminated On (channel), PFL (pre-fader listen), and phantom power switches let you confirm critical console settings at a glance.
14 buses for flexible signal routing
With a total of 14 mix buses (main stereo program bus, four stereo group bus pairs, six auxiliary busses, and two internal effect busses), you get lots of input channels for the high demands of live sound reinforcement, plus room for group submixes or aux sends for external signal processing and monitor mixes.
The 3-band EQ with sweepable mids provided on all input channels is designed for exceptionally smooth, intuitive response that can help you create cleaner, tighter mixes. All mono channels also feature a switchable high-pass filter that can cut out unwanted low-frequency noise.
SPX digital effects
Two high-performance digital signal processors are fed by separate effect buses and enhance the mix with 2 separate effects simultaneously. Each stage provides a selection of 16 pro-quality effects, including reverb, delay, pitch change, chorus, phasing, vocal doubling, distortion, and more. Parameter controls can be adjusted to tailor the effects to your sonic requirement. Tap delay makes it easy to produce tempo-synchronized delays.
Communication capability is important for an efficient setup as well as for keeping a show running smoothly. The MG32/14FX features a talkback system that allows the mixer engineer to communicate with other staff to keep the team operating at optimum efficiency.
All mono input channels feature insert I/O patch points so you can insert compressors, EQ, or other extra signal-processing gear into the channel signal path as required.
Professional connectivity is provided by reliable XLR-type balanced stereo and mono outputs.
One of the many uses for a mono output is to drive a subwoofer system. The MG32/14FX makes this easier than ever with a built-in sweepable low-pass filter on the mono outputs.
