    Comments about Yamaha MG166C 16Ch Mixer w/ 6-Ch Compressor:

    My first mixer was a Mackie 1642 VlzPro (a good sound mixer) after 4 years 3 channels were damaged and then I decided to upgrade my studio with a mixer to give me more than good sound quality. Yamaha 166C breaks the price myth I tested the Yamaha MG166C with different sources such as voices, loops from the MPC1000, etc. The preamp is very clean and transparent (with fat lows and mids) perfect for voice overs and background vocals. The compressor is very easy to use, very useful and very fat. For me the Mackie 1642 softens the sound and the Yamaha 166C puts the "fat" factor on your tracks this is a good thing if you work with Hip Hop and you like the "Bomm BOOM Baap" style. I record vocals with the MPA GOLD but if you are a person who needs to use what you have on hand will not have problems with the preamp, compressor and the eq. I know it is a irony that I'm going to upgrade my studio with a cheaper mixer but believe me the Yamaha MG166C is cheaper than the Mackie 1642 but it gives you more performance.

          A:

          Not as a interface, If you just want to run the output of that mixer into the input of your interface then yes it'll will work that way.
