A mixer with powerful PC connectivity
It is highly advantageous for a Church to have the capacity to offer nearly immediate upload of services, or meeting recordings to the Internet. Many of the mechanisms that exist to facilitate this type of service involve multiple transfers between devices, sometimes even time-consuming realtime transfers.
For this matter, Yamaha offers its MG166C-USB mixer as a useful tool for mixing sound in a live PA or AV scenario, but it brings one more valuable trick to the game: It facilitates a USB connection with a computer so that audio can be directly recorded from the mixer in realtime. Upon completion of the recording process—and after light editing such as topping, tailing, equalization, and dynamics processing—the recording can be quickly encoded as an MP3 file and uploaded to the Internet. Even in the case of an hour-long lecture, panel, or seminar, this process could be theoretically completed in minutes, so long as a reasonably fast Internet connection is available.
Whether you have a mixing applications that involves only a few channels, or up to 32 inputs with substantial signal routing versatility, Yamaha's MG-series offers a console that will give you the capacity, control, and performance you deserve. All models are remarkably compact and lightweight for superior handling and portability, but absolutely no compromises have been made in terms of features, performance, or durability. The MG mixers offer an extraordinary blend of technology: some inherited from professional Yamaha mixing consoles you're likely to see in distinguished halls throughout the world, and some developed specifically to deliver optimum performance in the MG-console format. In either case these performance-packed mixers are founded on a world-spanning network of human and technological resources that crystallize to deliver features that really matter, and sound that is undeniably superior.
