MG10XUF 10-Channel Analog Mixer w/Faders
With large linear faders for easy visibility under low-light conditions, the 10-channel MG10XUF carries on Yamaha's tradition of great sound, delivering Class-A D-PRE microphone preamps and SPX onboard effects. Ideal for recording, live music and installed applications, the MG10XUF boasts an intuitive, easy-to-use interface and rock-solid construction that's designed to stand up to professional use.
Yamaha's state-of-the-art, discrete, studio-grade Class-A D-PRE microphone preamplifiers utilize inverted Darlington circuitry to deliver outstanding sonic quality with ample power at low impedance. The high-resolution sound of D-PRE preamps is a beloved feature of Yamaha's professional mixers, satisfying the requirements of the most demanding sound engineers. With big, natural sounding bass, a rich midrange, and smooth highs—all with very low distortion—D-PRE preamps offer an impressively wide frequency range that handles signals from any audio source without coloration, faithfully retaining the most detailed nuances of the original sound.
An upgraded single-knob compressor makes it possible to add optimized compression to a wide variety of input sources via a single control. Yamaha’s acclaimed SPX effects are ubiquitous in sound reinforcement and recording applications. Twenty-four updated SPX effects are included in the MG10XUF for versatile creative processing.
The MG10XUF also features a USB 2.0 audio interface capable of 24-bit/192kHz quality for playback of digital content from a PC, and/or recording of the mixer’s output to DAW software such as the included Steinberg Cubase AI. USB Audio Class 2.0 is also supported, allowing operation with USB Audio Class 2.0 compliant tablets and other devices without the need to install driver software. The MG10XUF is also compatible with the Apple Camera Connection Kit or Lighting to USB Camera Adapter for seamless recording and playback of digital audio to and from an iPad or iPhone.
With emphasis on durability, the versatile MG10XUF boasts practical features that ensure reliable operation in a wide range of challenging conditions. A powder-coated steel chassis provides improved structural strength, while the placement of the knobs above the surface of the chassis protects internal components by absorbing impact or pressure applied to the knobs themselves.

For a more precise control and enhancement of your sound, XU models of the MG Series come equipped with a suite of Yamaha's renowned SPX effects. Featuring high-resolution Chorus, Flanger, Distortions, Reverb and Delay, all with editable parameters, these are the same multieffects processors used on Yamaha's high-end mixing consoles, giving you the tools you need to elevate your mixes to a higher plane.
D-PRE and High-Quality Operational Amplifiers
Mono input channels are equipped with "D-PRE" Class-A discrete microphone preamplifiers. The D-PRE head amplifier features an inverted Darlington circuit used in high-end audio devices. This circuit uses multi-stage amplifying elements to ensure high current and low impedance, for an audio texture with crispness and richness in the low and mid frequencies. Combined with the specially-designed "MG01" operational amp, the overall result is full-bodied reproduction of low frequencies as well as sustained high frequencies. Input channels feature combo jacks, which can accept both XLR and TRS connectors. In addition, PAD circuitry allows line level input, to accommodate a wide variety of instruments.
24 High-Quality Digital Effects
MG10XUF features 24 built-in effects that are based on SPX algorithms used by professionals. In particular, the high quality reverb and delay expand the spatial quality of the sound with remarkable realism and naturalness.
24-bit/192 kHz USB Audio Interface
MG10XUF features a USB 2.0 audio interface capable of 24-bit/192 kHz sound quality. With the audio interface you can play back music from your computer, or use DAW software such as Cubase AI to record the mixer output. The XU models support USB Audio Class 2.0 so you can use them with USB Audio Class 2.0 compliant tablets and other devices, without the need to install drivers. The USB protocol uses asynchronous data transfer. Audio data is transferred based on a highly precise audio clock signal from the MG, for high quality recording and playback.
MG Rec & Play
The MG Rec & Play software application enables recording to an iPhone/iPad connected to MG10XUF, as well as playback of songs and sounds from an iPhone/iPad. This application can be used for a wide range of purposes, such as recording live gigs, providing background music for entertainment events, or sound effects for parties.
