The Yamaha MW12C USB Mixing Studio gives you everything you need to turn your computer system into a complete, full- featured, high-performance home recording studio.
The Yamaha MW12C uses a single cable USB connection to interface with your computer, for bi-directional audio data transfer. The Yamaha MW12C gives you comprehensive signal input and mixing features in a compact size. It also includes the powerful Cubase AI4 music production software, allowing you to capture your performances, embellish and enhance them with plug-in synths and effects, and mix them down to stereo. In other words, the MW gives you all the elements of a recording system, one that is remarkably easy to set up and operate.
The Yamaha MW12C provides a comprehensive tabletop studio setup for the solo recording musician and for the travelling producer/arranger. Connect the the Yamaha MW12C 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.
The MW12C gives 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.
In addition to the normal stereo buss, the MW12C has assignable busses (REC OUT). This feature gives you addes flexibility in routing the signals for recording and monitoring. Turning on the ON switch for any channel immediately routes that channel to the USB terminal and enables it for recording. Multiple channels selected in this way are, of course, recorded to a stereo mix on the computer. In this condition, each channel is also mixed to the stereo buss and can be monitored (with the Monitor Mix function).
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.
