This compact mixer may not look very elaborate, but it's got a lot going on! On top of the ability to manage eight input sources (four via XLR inputs), the Yamaha MG102c fits into countless studio and live situations. Need to run a drum submix? The MG10c will do it! Running sound for a small event? No problem! But wait, there's more! The two mono mic channels are equipped with Yamaha's 1-button compressor, a flexible dynamics processor that takes the guesswork out of one of the most misused concepts in audio. You'll find a million and one uses for this great mixer, and at this price, there's no reason not to have a Yamaha MG102c!
