Excerpt: Sound: Very clean, nice warm pre's, compression very usable, EQ sufficient, EFX....lacks slightly on the presence, but overall nice for a built in unit. Faders are smooth, and assignment options are great. Works with any style. Easy to mix on the fly. Buy an outboard EQ, or add a BBE sonic maximizer to help draw out the usable freqs. Dont over EQ though, a simple 15band stereo EQ will be more than enough.
Excerpt: I'm very pleased with this Yamaha MG124CX Mixer. It replaced my Mackie Onyx 1220 which I'll probably keep as a spare. I like the built in effects for live use. The Compressors on the first four channels help punch up the vocals and kick drum. I have the compressor set at around 9 o'clock for the vocals and around 11:30 for the kick drum mic. The AE5400 condenser mic and EV N/D 767 mic's sound great with very little need for any EQ.
